Default X, XI, Pure Fly, or S300 Skates

Hi I was wondering if anyone would help me decide which pair of skates is best.

1-Bauer Vapor X
2-Bauer Vapor XI
3-Mission Pure Flys
4-Mission Pure lights
5-Mission s300

I have a cheapo version of Vapors right now called Vapor Selects. They broke down really fast and I need new skates. My 3 year old mission rollerblades have held up nice after pretty much everyday use. How do lightspeed chassis compare to the custom+, and how does the pitch system work, Well? Share your experiencesand thoughts.

Pitch system , which im sur eyou know is on the s300 & above, is a great system in theory. i havent been able to demo them yet, but Mission is horrible for their runners breaking sooooo i dunno.

Pure lite is a phenominal skate fo rthe price, best fit i've tried on

vapour 11(xI whatever) ummm, kinda overpriced, 299.99 reg price they shouldnt be

vapour x see above, not even a thermofit boot

pure fly awesome.

I really like the mission fit sysytem as they contour to your ankle, give u a supple fit instead of a stiff ankle hold.

edit: tried on the s500's today at work....orgasm...awesome skate, all the bells and whistles.

I would go for a pair of Missions, that's all I skate on now. Ice and Roller for me is Mission. But if I were you, the old Bauer Vapor 10 skates are much better than the new Vapors (for example Vapor X) that are out now in my opinion.

yeh I just bought a pair of s400's glad you guys said good thing about missions. It's still an adjustment to get used to the pitch i think my bauers had a better feel. The boot is very comfortable. I think I made the right choice to go with the mission best boot for sure I am still not sure about the pitch though. The boot doesn't have to beveled like those bauers and CCM's they never lose an edge because of the boot. One bad thing I noticed today is that he blades are already starting to rust and I've been treating these things like gold, too? Anyone else hae this problem.

Isn't that what the adjustable pitch holder is for?
