    Now take that same 20lb sledgehammer and handle it with one hand. Tell me how balance point matters. It's not even an extreme example but illustrates my point better. A heavy stick is a heavy stick. Balance point is just a way to mask and trick your brain that it doesn't feel as heavy. I'm an advocate that light sticks are generally preferred over heavier sticks, hence why NOBODY chooses to use a frickin tree. Sure a stick may be 'too light' but a stick on the lighter side is what all the pro's use because they know this is a game of inches and if your stick is too heavy, you may get too tired or you may be half a second late to the puck.

    Has anyone heard of or used a Coho stick?

    Coho Salmon?

    Well if they release Dow Tree-oh- one skates, I'm buying!

    Wow, they actually said that? I didn’t get far enough on their site to see that. CCM should probably do something about that. Even with a different spelling, if it’s phonetically the same then they would have a pretty good case. Not that this company needs CCM suing them for them to fail.

    So what are these claims about making history?

    It will be only a matter of time before we see some broken stick pictures. Really, I wonder if these will break at the shaft instead of the blade. That's my 51% guess.

    Wow. They are that big? I've seen some Kane Van Gate videos. He's an okay goalie. Somewhat entertaining videos if you don't take him totally seriously. He knows he's not NHL level stuff, wishes he were, and pokes fun at himself while at it.
  11. My ortho (who specializes in shoulder and knee) suspected pain going below the elbow is from pinched nerve at C5. The pain that I get is usually along the outside of the forearm and along the triceps, and along the shoulder blade in the back. That pain level is like a 5 to 8. The hand tingling pain level is usually 1 to 2, but can go up to 4 or 5, and sometimes I get the effect of losing hand strength, like pressing on top of a soap dispenser or reaching into my right side jeans pocket, but I can still open up and close my fingers.

    I disagree. A 500g stick is far from heavy, it's just heavier than a 400g stick. Balance is just as important as weight. Grab a 20lb sledgehammer and simulate stick handling, then turn it around and try again. Tell me balance point doesn't matter. It's an extreme example, but illustrates my point quite well. An extremely light stick might work best for you, but for others like myself, there is a point where a stick becomes too light. Personally, I have found that the True A5.2 and Nexus 1000 have felt much lighter than the actually are because of how well balanced they are. On the flip side, my QX3 feels as heavy to me as a Supreme One.7, which is almost 100g heavier. The QX3 is not heavy, but it feels heavy when I use it because the balance point is too low for my liking.

    I like how they say their name is an homage to Koho. No, you are just stealing someone’s name, and probably trying to take advantage of people who aren’t very good at spellchecking or fact checking. I can’t wait until they release their My-Cron skates.

    I wear Merino wool ski socks. Very comfy. But I wear through socks very quickly.

    I wear Stance socks personally, but I should give Swiftwick a try if I can find them in Canada.

    How tight should I tie my skates

    okay then I think I made that pretty well

    How tight should I tie my skates

    When baking skates you want them to be snug but you don't want them to be overly tight. Don't crank down on the laces or pull them so tight because you can do damage to the eyelets and the surrounding areas.

    How tight should I tie my skates

    okay, I just did now know I baked them today and did not lace them tight and I would be interested if baking still helped even if i tied them "wrong"

    +1 for Swiftwick. Aspire Four for me, personally. The double compression cuff definitely helps with abrasion from the top of my skates, too.

    How tight should I tie my skates

    I'm struggling to make sense of this, however play around with tying them, personally I like them looser over the forefoot, then slightly tighter going up the ankle. They're your skates on your feet, you'll know when they feel good.
  21. Common. I described my issues to the neck ortho and basically said it is kind of numb, but kind of tingly and has a dull pain, all at the same time. He said that was not at all out of the ordinary because with nerve issues the nerve is sending weird signals to the brain.

    I just use plain black office socks.

    Well, they had to dial back the blade stiffness without changing the materials used is my guess.
  25. typically no dye necessary for spinal mri's when looking for disc issues. dye is sometimes necessary when looking for a labral tear because it can be difficult to pick up on the images and the dye will fill any cracks or tears in the cartilage.
  26. I have pretty good insurance. I've already had a variety of surgeries in the last couple years. Last one was a spinal fusion, L4 and L5. A couple months before that was a hip arthoscopy. A couple years before that was shoulder labrum repair. The cortisone shot helped the shoulder pain a bit. It's been two days since I got that shot. The numbness/tingling is still happening in my pinky and ring finger. Pain in fingers, hand and arm are sporadic. MRIs are pretty expensive, especially if you need the dye. Does neck MRI require a dye? I know for my lumbar, it didn't. Surprised you can play after three cervical vertibrae are fused.
