Default Luigino victory vs strut

Wondering if the luigino victory is a better boot than the strut? I bought the struts a little too tight and was thinking of getting another boot in the next size up but saw the victory on eBay new and just wondering if anyone has used both

One of our skaters moved to the Victory from a Powerslide R2 (similar toe shape). I had ordered a Strut but ended up with the Bolt.
My observations:
Victory's toe has more of a cone shaped curvature then the Strut, i.e., tapers inward at the first metatarsal head base of the big toe going toward the front as well as at the pinky toe. Strut is more blunt, the big toe being more straight from the first metatarsal head. Bolt has a greater inward curve from the pinky toe then Strut but still allows the big toe to not be pushed inward as would with the Victory.
Cuff height of Strut is supposed to be the highest of the three for more ankle support. To my eye the Victory looked to be about the same height. Bolt is lower.
OTT, Victory was in the line before the Strut and may have more carbon.
If you like and fit modern running shoes with width for toe splay, stick with the Strut. Just be careful not to have to sloppy a fit going up a size.
Fit is Paramount Above All Else.
