vapor xx or flexlite 10

has anyone skated in both the vapor xx and flexlite 10 skates? i have narrowed it down to these two pairs as i can not spend more than 300 dollars on a pair of skates and they both seem VERY light. by browsing on here i have seen that the flexlites hurt a little at break in time but since that goes away i dont mind. any feedback would be great as the flexlite 10s are $250 and the vapor xx's are $280 at the hockey giant store by me.

I've had a great experience with my old Nikes, the V-10 and V-9. No durability issues and I have skated on both pairs a tonne.

Personally I'd go with the XX's. Lightspeed Holders are the shizzle.

Try them on. The first is VERY different, so one will definately fit better than the other. The Vapors are for a narrower foot, the Nikes are wider.
