tour code roller hockey skates


I just ordered these because they were only 200 bucks ( regular $400)
and they were the only skate they said would fit my size 15.

Ive heard good things about them. Im coming from hi-lo skates though. Is this going to be a problem going to straight 80mm wheels??
also- will i have toi bake these puppies??
thanks

you should be fine with feel you ll feel a lil more forward than the hi lo like your eel is higher but other than that its the same basic concept as the hi lo

mission pattented th hi lo so the low boy frame for tour, the one up from bauer are all the same hi lo idea

A little OT but I remember Darren Banks playing for the Anaheim Bullfrogs back in the mid 90's... good stuff.

well- played my first game with these last night. After baking them, they seemed to fit well( no pain).
One problem though. The front right wheel doesnt spin well at all. Any suggestions for this?

How tight do you guys tighten the screws for the wheels? If I tighten that front wheel it doesnt spin freely at all. I had to loosen that screw during the game just to get it to spin some.

I noticed the Tour Cobalt 8.8 are on sale at alot of online stores for 149$. It's a steal in my opinion they are great skates.
