That FBV sharpening sounds amazing and my only problem on ice is that i dont get a good glide out of a standard 1/2''. Do many LHS offer the FBV sharpening?

They're size 9. I was on a 7/16" ROH and went to a 100/75 FBV. It may be time to change them though as a couple times I lost an edge and went down, lol. I went online to No Icing and had them do a new set of Step runners and then skated on them and liked the FBV. Then I sent my original Graf runners in for the same sharpening so I have a backup set. So I would only be without a backup set for a few days if I sent a pair in for resharpening. Only takes a minute or so to change them out and I carry them along in the bag (with a screwdriver too).

yea both are mine, i just bought the 40's so havnt skated in them that much but the fit is really nice, very comfortable right out of the box, the heel and ankle area is more snug and compaired to the u + which is really wide so you dont get any heel lock, the protection on the 40's are alot better. the U's form alot better to your foot it litterally wraps around your foot and the break in time is little to none. but for the better overall boot id have to say the 40's.

Hi, being around 175lbs and playing mostly on outdoor concrete, in your opinion and of course other members opinions are also most welcome, do you think the bronze, 76 hardness if I'm not mistaken, will hold up decently or will they burn faster than a cigarette?

Regards,
Nelson

Tell the difference when using it.....you mean compared to a different brand, or when you are sharpening with the FBV?
