which one do you like Vapour XXXX or the Supreme One90?
I have XXXs and I like them better than the One90s. Something about the XXXXs turn me off (something in addition to being ugly).
I would get the One90s but I'd change the LSPower Tuuk over to the LS2. I have a shorter, chopier stride.
What position do you play.
I currently use One50s and they're great. So I'd say One90s.
From what i've read and heard is that Vapours are for speed and finnese players, the Supreme's are power for d-man and big strong guys.
That's what i've heard, but i haven't personally used them.
then from that i'd need the Supreme One90's cause i'm like a less talented mix of smyth and Neil
the skates fit differently, go with the skate that fits you foot.
P.S. There is no such skate as a one50, it's called the Supreme 50.
We have a winnar.
P.S. Stupid thread.
id get the Vapors cuz i know that line fits my foot very well, but the Supremes might fit you better.
keep in mind both these skates give a very different fit and you shouldnt just be buying them online without trying them on, try them on and find the best skate for you, then buy online
I like Vapors because they fit better. i just got a piar of XXV and they are amazing.
does anyone kknow the price of the XXXX's?
i know the XXX's are $625
Not really, the Bauer rep I talked to a while back doesn't know how that myth started, but it seems to have perpetuated. I've had a pair of 30's for a little over two years now and I'm pretty far away from being a "finnese" player. It's all about getting a boot that fits your individual foot, and provides the support where you need it.
As a couple of people have already said, both skates fit differently. Pick the one you feel fits your foot the best.
yea this is a complete joke. just like how bauer tries to position their sticks towards power players (one90) as opposed to skill players(vapor).
its marketing hoopla.
XXXXs are around $550 (US)
