Bauer supreme skates

I am looking to upgrade my skates after picking up hockey last year. The CCM shock le skates I have are creasing and feel really soft. I went shopping yesterday and tried on every skate they had in and around my size regardless of price point and the bauer supreme series seem to fit great he had me try on the one.9 and it fit like a glove but is way above my price range.

My question is if I am trying to stay around 350 dollars should I just go with the one.7 now or wait until the higher end models go on sale or see if can find them used or something. I am 230 lbs and although I'm not a very good skater I can generate some power and think I need a stiff boot but I am newish to this and could use advice.

I am no pro, but I will just relay previous advice given to me, which is to not go with a too high end skate too soon.

Intermediate level would be a better option I think, but I suppose you should wait for the more experienced guys to give their opinions.

If you're a new skater, stay in the lower middle range- middle range skates. Don't get a too high end skate too soon, you'll regret it.

I would recommend purchasing the Supreme one.6 skate. It's only $200 and provides very good support. It is a great introductory skate.

I'm new to hockey but I've been skating for a while and am probably one of the faster skaters in my c league. I have an intermediate boot now and was wondering of I would benefit from moving up or am I just worrying about nothing and need to just work on my technique because I feel like there is something missing

Ok, I'd go to one.7 and wouldn't wait for the higher end models.

I have the one.5 skates, I just started skating out after playing between the pipes for about 10 years. They're great skates so far and should be adequate for men's league.

I got my One.8's at Sport Chek for $249 on Boxing Day. So, looks like a standard deal price on these right now. The One.7s were 225 I think.

They felt great for 20 minutes. Then they started to break me in. Nasty blister on the boot top. Rebaking will be this weekend.

I currently have the one.7's which feel just has good has my old one95s so honestly I don't think the technology in skates is changing that fast right now. so if you say find a total one on sale for 300 or even a one 85 for cheap I personally think would be a better buy then the one.7 although the one.7s are great the would be comparable to a one 60. but if you aren't a great skater then you probably wont feel a huge difference and after you buy them and use em for a while you wont even notice them
