Comments: The APXR's are no doubt the top skate from Bauer's 2012 lineup. I went from the Bauer RX60's, which I absolutely loved except for the fact that the outsole broke away from the boot after two seasons. In comparison to the RX60's these are more responsive and much, much stiffer. At first I was a little skeptical about how stiff these skates are because they required a long break-in period. I even baked them two times to help facilitate the process but I still had to deal with some discomfort. It has taken me about 2 months to get these completely broken in (I play 3-4 times a week on average). Now they are absolutely fantastic! So, be sure to take the stiffness of these boots into consideration. You may find that they take longer to break-in but they are totally worth it. Im sure these will last MUCH longer than any other inline skate I've owned in the past.

Comments: The lightest skate that I have ever owned. When im not wearing them I tie weights to them so they don't float away. Very stiff i broke them in quite quickly because i skate around the house in them. When tightening the wheels the axles snapped off and the front of the plastic boot is missing a chunk of it from a slash.If you want to be the best and skate the fastest these skates are a must buy!!

Comments: Comments:not really feedback on the skate just wanted to mention that saying labeda addiction wheels "slapped" to bottom isn't really good word choice for a high tech top end skate. Just sayin!
Comments: I've been through a lot of skates, and this is by far the best I've used. These skates are very stiff and haven't broken down at all after many games. (They don't seem like they ever will) They are very light. I've compared them to other high end skates and they were the lightest out of all of them. There isn't as much padding inside the skate compared to other skates I've used, but they feel great after i got used to it. I use these skates playing at an indoor sport court rink the wheels are great on that surface. They are definitly made for an advanced/ pro level player.
Comments: Ridiculously light weight and incredibly stiff. The build quality of these is really amazing and they are unlike any other skate. Unfortunately, these didn't quite fit my foot. The volume appears to be slightly less than Bauer's XR Premier skate and they feel a little wider than the XR Premier as well.

Comments: Most durable and lightest inline skates ever made. Not paid to give a review just trying to help those who are tired of having skates fold or have a crease form in the hinge area of the boot. You know what I am talking about if you play competitive inline hockey. All other inline skates form this annoying crease over time and affect skating performance. Only skates ever purchased that have lasted more than one season of truly competitive inline hockey. The skate chassis has blocked tons of shots as I play defense. No dents have occurred from being hit with unbelievable cannons. Expensive, but worth the money. To step down one level in the line of skates is not an option as too much of a material downgrade would be in effect. Fastest I have ever been able to skate was while using this pair of skates. Unmatched quality at this point in time.
