Cowlings: Graf vs Bauer vs CCM

It should fit then.  I have seen several that said the Vaughn boot fits perfectly in the Vertex cowling.

Maybe it was the guy who had the issues. He wrote that he had to choose a size up on the cowling which I want to avoid at all cost.

Wish our local shops were better equipped so I can try things out before spending for the actual mod.

That may be the case but when sized correctly I have seen that it is a perfect fit.  For what its worth, the Vertex cowlings aren't as drastic of a change as you size up as it when you size up in Vaughn.  There are several more size offerings to choose from.

Ya, I know. Vaughn dropped the ball on that one.

Do you have a line on any Graf cowlings?

The ones used on the Dream line, like the one Price is using.

I assumed those were the ones you want.  Do you have a line on any?  Do they sell the cowling new by itself or is it something you'll have to find used?

I can get them new at a shop in Montreal or abouts there. The only downside is that they sell the cowling and the blades separately which means more spending. The Bauers I can get as a complete set for a little less.

I did send Vaughn a message last week asking their advice on the matter and have yet to get a reply.

I did exactly that with GX2’s and a CCM cowling 1 size up (9.5 boot 10 cowl) and can say for a fact Vaughn boots don’t fit in rbz cowlings without some surgery as they are too wide. Now I did cut my cowl a la AS1 and it fit perfect.

The only problem I am having is wear on the inside of the boot, I’m thinking I might be able to fix with some clear epoxy. These are definently a step up from my Graf 4500s and the perfect soft/stiff balance to be a comfortable as my old Bauer 7000’s. Pro stock hockey has the Gx2 skates dirt cheap, but I’d probably try one size up on the cowlings, in half sizes at least.
