Vapor x6.0 or 7.0 skates?

Hey Guys!

Im 32 years old guys who played hockey until A juniors, had 10+ years in between when didnt skate at all and now i picked up hockey in a lower division level in Sweden again last season.

On my previous active years i was playing with bauer air90 which if i remember correctly liked a lot. Now a year ago when i started again, i just bought cheap skates (reebok 6k) but as i assumed, they didnt last longer than one season and now i am looking for a pair of middle highend - highend skates.

I`ve been trying on supreme, nexus and vapor series skates from Bauer and the one that sits nicely is the vapor series.

Now my question is; what is the real difference between 6.0 and 7.0? Is there a huge difference in stiffness or is the only difference really the material inside the shoe and the toe of the skate?

I looked into APX as well, but they feel a bit too stiff as i prefer stiff but not extremely stiff skate, so thats not an option. Though the price difference between 6.0 and 7.0 here in sweden is approx $250, so i kinda would like to know what is the real real difference between them in order to decide whether to toss the extra $250 is worth it or not.

Thanks all in advance! =)

Semper.

Post questions in there next time.

The 7.0 has a different liner, tongue, outsole and tech mesh quality. Small upgrades all over.

Get whatever fits you best, Reebok and Vapor are very very different.

Because of the very minor differences between these two skates i bought the 6.0.

Baked them, and went to ise for the first time with them yesterday, and i must say that after 30 minutes the skates felt like i`ve had them for years. No pain whatsoever.

Awesome skate!

Semper.
