    Okay. I'll give it a shot. Thanks again.

    I also recommend Hockey Monkey, they seem much more helpful than Hockey Giant.

    I'm in the market for a new pair of skates and am considering Grafs. Thankfully I can buy the junior size and save money.

    Skates and skating have changed so much since back in the day.

    Be prepared to have a far more stiffer skate as well as a weight that is just unreal.

    BTW - I hope you still like wood sticks (bad news is that there are VERY few wood producers still in business) because when you get ready to buy something new and you want a composite you really are going to ****.

    The only thing that I can recommend is what I like and that's Bauer. If I were to get a pair of current skates right now it'd be Bauer Supremes. I know it's Nike/Bauer now but it's basically the same as it was prior to Nike. Mission skates have never been comfortable to me but like I said, I only know what I like. Different strokes for different folks.

    Hockey Monkey. Take a serious look at Graf skates - they make skates for a variety of foot shapes - narrow, wide, lots of arch, no arch, unlike everyone else who just make skates for a foot that is shaped a particular way.

    I completely misunderstood the nature of this thread based off its name. I feel I can offer no more advice than has already been give on your hockey equipment

    Although its not as big as Hockey Monkey or Hockey Giant, Toyota Sports Center has a pro shot that usually has a good selection and is quite a bit closer to you.

    You don't have to go all the way to Orange County just to try on skates. Discount Hockey is much closer to you. They are in Woodland Hills. If you don't think that you are getting the service that you need there then you can try out those other places in Orange County. I believe that they also provide heat molding for your skate.

    I agree with Hockey Monkey. The pro shop at Toyota is small and can be over priced compared to Hockey Monkey which tries to price match with the internet prices. Also, the last few times I have been to the pro shop at TSC, they have been unresponsive douchey kind of guys.
