Just picked up a pair of 04 D2c's. Actually my super cool girlfriend bought them for me as an early Christmas present because my Wicked Light's chassis went belly up.
Anyway, Im a bit confused as to how these new Missions are rated, and how they work. They used to have stiffness ratings, and now they do not. The laces are a bit odd with this new DNA technology too. Anyone happen to know about how stiff D2's are? My ol Wicked Lights are rated at 7.5
I HAD a pair (until the chassis snapped) of '00 Wicked lights. I remember paying a pretty penny for them back then. Theyve lasted, well, but the carbon chassis finally gave out and snapped/cracked in a few areas by the axles. These things fit better than the glove on OJ's hand, and I was sad I had to get a new pair. I tried convincing my girlfriend that Heliums were the right thing for me : ) but she told me to dream on. She offered to buy the He350's, but I didnt want a lower quality skate. So I settled on the 04 d2's. Couldnt get her to move up to the D1's, otherwise I would have. I didnt see any D-Limiteds around, were those widespread? I know a guy who runs a hockey warehouse around this neck of the woods, and he had a pair. Hmm..
Well, just looking for opinions on the newer Mission skates. I havent bought a new pair in quite some time. I never fell for that 'vibe' crap either. : )
