Comments: Solid skates. Very light. The durability seems worse than the RX60's with the inside by the top eyelet wearing faster than
expected. If you are upgrading from older Bauers, make sure you check your sizing, as these seem to require you to size down, perhaps as much as a full size.

Comments: Super light, stiff and responsive, while still being comfortable. I didn't even bake these and they fit great my first game out. Fit in terms of volume, heel, etc. was spot on to the description. The black and silver look is even better in person. Revision Gold wheels were slippery my first game out, but they seem to be hitting the grippy sweet spot now that I have a few games on them.
