Default Lace length for Riedell 595

Hi DocSk8,

I'm trying to figure out what laces to order for my 595. I searched and searched and even Riedell doesn't mention anywhere how long the laces are. 72", 81", 90"? I feel like there may be an obvious answer, but it's not obvious to me! Since the 595 is pretty low (not as low as a 195 though), perhaps it's 81". Please help!

Thanks,
Max

Default They come with

72" laces... although I'm thinking the gun boat sizes may like 81s better...

It all depends on what you want to do with the laces...

Talking OH, humor

You guys on the other side of the world crack me up...

BUT since the question was asked.. I'd start with a 7 foot piece.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for both a straight answer (DocSk8) and the obvious answer (cass38a), although using string is a great idea, I'm not sure I have any string that long!
