    Most people had that happen because they were tugging on their tendon guards to take off their skates.

    To the OP, this is a known issue with Grafs, just loctite and call it a day.

    Just bought a pair of Grafs... but I immedietly slapped a pair of Tuuks on them.



    They are also rockered, which is always weird for someone who hasn't had that before, but for me I love them. Will never go back to my CCM 652 Tacks.

    Yes, I played on those skates for 2 decades...

    Yeah, I saw that a lot on the other forums and I can totally see why that would happen. Although that was not what happened to me since I bought my one90's a little later and saw the people complain about them. I was very careful pulling them off. I'm almost positive it was while I was playing. They made that part too narrow. My new vapors, the one95's, one100's are all changed now. That one90 tendon guard was a nice idea but wasn't very practical for real life.

    Careful with the black holders. They look great but they crack easily. At least they did for me. And you might want to swap out the laces for some green ones.
