    I bought a pair of CCM Vector ZG130's back in November and love them. The only cons I can think of is the noise they make....sounds like a duck quacking when you're skating....and it took a week or so to get used to them.

    Other than that they've been great....been using them about twice a week and still not even close to needing replacement blades.

    I got them on a pair of Graf's 705 and love them, I would not got back to a regular blade. Took a couple of times to get use to them.

    Loved them when I had them put on my old Nike's...but hated the sound they made, and how ridiculous they really look. Equiptment manager of the team I work for got me new skates after everyone decided mine were too ridiculous. Loved the T Blades tho, especailly the not having to sharpen bit.

    I've had them for over a year on my Graf's and it's pretty safe to say that I'm going back to a regular blade shortly.

    If you can get good sharpenings in your local area, don't waste your money on T-blades.

    Is it true that Graf don't believe in stainless steel blades? Just got told that today, and am wondering about their carbon steel blades. Would it make any difference considering I live in what we call the 'sunshine state' and rust probs? THanks :)
