U+CL / RBZ vs. One.9 Supreme
I currently am skating Bauer Supreme one.9. I have small feet with high arches and a high instep. I was skating in vapors but found them too uncomfortable. The one.9 fit more comfortably width wise, but in order to achieve the brush of the toe cap I skate in junior skates which creates a problem with depth. My foot doesn't seem to fit deep enough meaning that I get terrible lace bite, and not enough tightness around the ankle.
Would ccm skates fit me better? , and is the support of the U+CL or RBZ going to be the same as the bauers giving me the same amount of stiffness? I wish my feet were not so odd. I sadly have to go with junior skates to achieve the feathering of the cap. I have spoke to local hockey shops and tried on many skates but the clerks seem incompetent and all about just making the sale. Thanks
Always tough, as Junior skates will have somewhat of a different feel and make then the Senior model. If you can get your foot in them that would be the easiest way to tell. I can tell you that the CCM lines, both the RBZ and U+CL, will have a closer fit to Bauer's Supreme line then they would of the Vapors. CCM's have a natural, close fit around entire foot and with the RBZ's you can get custom support insole for customized arch support. The stiffness will be similar as well as the breaking in process. The toe box in the CCM's, from personal use, is a little wider then any Bauer skate out there, allowing for a smooth foot placement.

these or one100?
i have a EE foot size in bauer vapors and have pressure points on the top and bottom of my feet. which one would be the most comfortable and overall better skate?
The U+ Crazy Light and the One100s are both top of the line skates. Both offer a skate that is incredibly light yet offers the stiffness and support that you need to play at a high level. However, the U+ offers the ability to mold the skate with greater detail then the ONE100s. Understand, you can mold the One100s, but the foam in the U+ gives a little better fit for people with problem feet (in my opinion).

How does the sizing of the U+ CL compare to the U+ Pro Reloaded skates?
Wondering if the sizing runs differently in these skates to the former top of the line model.
All of the CCM model skates have the same type of sizing. CCM has a narrow heel and mid foot with a regular fore foot. So if you have a slightly wider foot you may want to look into a Reebok skates.
