  1. This is a *great* list. Long story short: I got lucky with my 1st pair of skates, Mega Air 90s. I didn’t know anything, but I knew they were special. Bauer bought Micron. Bauer came out with their version, so I got their pair because I was worried that they’d kill them, which they did. Flash forward many years, I retired the Megas a few years ago, the ankles were shot. I’ve been wearing the Bauers, and now I’m nervous about what I’ll do next. This list is a good reference!

    Eric – if you know, any suggestions for something after the Mega/Bauer Air 90s? I’ve been focusing on older Supreme’s, because I hear they might fit similarly.

    Thanks!

    1. That’s a point that people commonly feel like they reach a good price to performance. It’s also very consistent mid-point for most lineups.

  2. Thanks for the article, very helpful!

    I think I noticed some typos; 2019 CCM Ribcor line should be 74k, 76k, 78k, and 80k, no?

  3. I keep referring back to this table. I have tried a few used Bauers lately: One.8, One60, MX3, etc. None of them fit right. (I’ve tried D and EE; D is too tight, and EE is too wide; ugh! The heels is fine for them all, it’s the forefoot where the problem is.) I now have a pair of CCM 552s I’ll try this weekend. So far in my living room, they fit the best of all of them, and they’re more flexible like my old skates.

    Coach Eric, I don’t know all the models, but maybe you could add a 2014 line for the CCM Tacks? I can help a little:

    2052 – $110
    3052 – $230
    4052 – $330
    5052 – $430
    6052 – $530

    Thanks!
    Kevin.
