I'm in the market for new skates and I'm interested in the True two-piece and Bauer 2xPro's. I've been leaning True as my left foot is about a full size bigger then my right and trying to get skates that fit and feel comfortable on both feet has always been an issue. That would probably be solved with True's, but I've heard lots of durability issues with them. I've seen a lot of conflicting thoughts on them. Next year I'm playing high level U15 and I'll be skating 6+ times a week when the season starts (hopefully) so they will take a beating. I've always worn Bauer skates so I'm a bit hesitant to change. I've never had any huge issues with Bauer skates besides some ankle pain and an awkward fit. The tech on the 2xPro's looks pretty sick and seems like a great skate I'm just thinking the custom boot from True is more up my alley. If I go with True, I was thinking I'd go with the Vertex holder as it would give me some familiarity to a Bauer skate.
If anyone can tell me about their experience with True's or 2xPro's I'd highly appreciate it. Also if you had True's please touch on the durability and the holders.
Anyone have any issues getting their 4mm Step Steel into their Bauer Vertexx Edge holder? I have S27s (size 7 w/ 3mm steel) and bought some 4mm Step Steel. I can't get the new steel to snap into place. I'd run it to my local shop for them to do it, but everyone in CA is closed. Insights appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hey guys. I have been wanting to paint the carbon fiber part of my true skates for a while now. Anyone know how to do it/recommendations for people to do it? I have heard that I can take it to a body shop and have them paint them but I don't know if I want to spend 70$ on a paint job if I could get it somewhere else for much cheaper.
