    Where to find well-used steel?

    They aren't sold in predetermined sizes; we cut them to order and will need the skates to do so. But it is extremely important to find out what the discrepancy actually is.

    The new STX Surgeon RX3 gear is out.

    It may be worth bringing up doing the build your own stick thing a lot of direct sales smaller companies offer. If you were selling a truely top tier customizable stick for under $200 I have a feeling I would be seeing them all over. A Surgeon with a P38 like blade and a lie 4.5. Sick!!!! Call up your boys, let's do this.

    The new STX Surgeon RX3 gear is out.

    We loved our experience with Chase and had a great time walking through our products with him. Due to our new business model, we hope that you can make your own opinion and determination on sticks buy testing it out during our 14 day Risk-Free Trial. If you are curious about our sticks and do not want to put all your trust in product reviews or videos you can purchase an elite level STX stick and demo it during our Risk Free Trial period. If the sticks are not what you expected or want to use a different curve/flex you can activate a return and we will give you your money back or exchange the stick for your new curve or flex. Product videos are great but why not try the stick out for yourself. We hope this new business direction becomes the new norm in the hockey industry.

    STX is a very established lacrosse brand. They have a reputation in the industry. Base is cool but their brand is not similar to STX. I do love their site though.

    BASE has been doing that with sticks. Problem with cutting out the middle man is, how do you get a sense of the product before you buy it? Word of mouth, trying teammates’ stuff out; then that’s the chicken and the egg problem, only a little different this time since they were previously stocked by shops, both B+M and online.

    You would think selling direct they could offer more curves because they don't have to produce massive amounts of rach curve. Maybe a consideration for future generations. As much as a lot of what STX is doing feels weird, it could turn out pretty sweet too. We all love going to the LHS and I hate when they struggle, but at the same time more direct sales could totally change how gear is bought. Maybe when you go to buy a stick you could have a ton of patterns and lie's to choose from. Or custom fitting more gear than just skates. Or even just simply lower cost.

    Because all they would be doing is selling on another website, the orders would still go through them just like they were bought in their store. They would have to pay some royalties to have their products featured, but the products could still be priced competitively. More exposure could help their brand grow beyond word of mouth and any social media promotion.

    Do the Surgeon RX3 gloves still run small like the previous 500s?

    For those who have requested access and are pending; please understand that we're a little behind schedule. We are doing completely custom jerseys and therefore would need your sizing as soon as possible.

    I misremembered the exact substitution mentioned, but here’s the post I had in mind (clipped for relevance).

    Pretty sure they could still keep the pricing fairly low by taking orders on the big online sites.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    It would be nice if we could get an official word on that from True, because SVH mentioned they could make the original VH hockey boots less stiff by subbing fiberglas for carbon. Could be that’s not an option they’ll entertain anymore.

    I’m and idiot(happens more than I’d like). Getting ramped up for the season. Though the pup didn’t “need” a stick, she’s put a beatin on her primary(been using it for a solid 7 months?), so just added another to an order of other junk, random purchase. Got it home, cut it and said no outside work( shooting gallery with a pad, she’ll take clappers until the sun sets), just ice. Mom takes her to a stick and puck & she tells me “Too stiff dad, no flex.” Ordered the 67, not the 60.... GREAT!!!

    No, it is really the only way to fix legs that are different lengths. Lifts / shims are fitted all the time to skates.

    One of my favorite sticks of all time was the original STX Surgeon 500 Stick. Is there a way to make a stick like that with your guy's custom program?

    ...you can't both compliment STX on "great pricing" for being direct to consumer, and then turn around and say "missed opportunity" for not selling in stores as having stores review them. You can't have both. Gotta pick one.
  24. It is also my wife’s and I anniversary of both our first date AND our wedding!!!!

    Will lifts compromise the integrity of my boot?
