Nike Bauer Supreme 70's?

I just started playing some adult league hockey after not skating in about 20 years. I bought a used pair of bauer supreme 7000's and have been using them for about 6 months now, but want something new that does not break the bank.. I found a guy selling a pair of brand new Nike Bauer Supreme 70's (maybe one70's, not sure, pictured below)for $130. I can't seem to find much information on these skates, no reviews, etc. I was wandering if anyone would be able to give me a review, possitive, negative, or just their piece of mind or hearsay on these skates?
Thanks for the help, much appreciated
Skates are pictured below

if (and that is a important IF) the boot fits your foot well. They are a good skate. They were the second from the top line pair when the one90 was the top line. its a good skate.

Decent skate (built from the 8090), but the holders are a weak link. I'd take the savings and look into swapping them out.

The holder?

What is different between the tuuk's on the 70 and other skates?

Anyone have any experience with these skates?

I had them back in 06 and used them heavily for two years. Was a great skate, and had the holders changed out to Tuuk+'s. They felt and performed great.



I then switched to the One90's and didn't like them one bit. The 70's were so much better for me, but since i got rid of them, I had no choice but to ditch the One90's for One95's... which I absolutely love.

Those clearish/blue holders didn't hold up very well.

The One75 is a great skate, and a steal for 200 bucks. Different skate though. The One70's are more traditional style boot, the One75's are a more modern composite boot. If I were you I'd at least put them on and see how they feel.

Heart ache!

I'm low on flow and the supreme 70's are looking good, but am I going to have to replace the tuuks immediately, are they that fragile, are they something that I do not want to be playing on?
I have never been able to try on these skates, though I have been able to try on a one55, one75, and the new one70, all feel good. Someone mentioned that the 70's are similar to the 8090, is that close to my 7000's?
What is the material on the uppers of the supreme 70's, it does not look composite, or is it?
For the price should I go for it? $130 for the supreme 70's?

You can play on those holders. You may never have a problem, depends how much abuse they see.

Yes they are along the lines of the 7000's, similar type of boot too and no they aren't a composite boot.

Go with what feels the best on your feet.

I bought these skates a few years ago but the blades did not hold up very well. They broke on me. The holders were not appropriate for the blades and apparently this is a common problem.

I still have the holders but different blades. I fixed the eyelets and toe guards on my old vapor 30s and pretty much switch between these skates.

Holders are **** on those. Seen the steel break right underneath the back screw as well a few times. Otherwise good skates.
