    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    I thought the new tongues did have a plastic insert that made it thermoformable.

    Here's where I posted the original rip. I wonder if they'd be able to fix them still...

    I disagree. Had 2 high level guys had them since last Christmas and no issues with shot blocking. And the best part was less wear...

    Protection level would be low and its very flexible. If you are someone concerned about foot protection I would say to go with the black or white felt tongue or the tongue option with a metatarsal guard. I personally like how much forward flexion it offers.

    How's the protection level and stiffness of the new tongue? Doesn't look like it would do much in terms of softening impacts, but looks like it would allow more forward flexion.

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    I think Bauer still uses too many materials in the new 2X series of skates that are not durable.

    Is thin, made with a high density foam and the back of it is fabric and not felt. https://photos.app.goo.gl/Twr34vzNJBnkirUh7

    Can you share a pic? If the tear is where I think it is you have a few options.

    I know vh recommends loctite super glue but I'm sure any type of super glue or gel super glue would work. I personally havent had to use a shoe shorn. I have one in my bag but never had to use it with both skates I've owned.

    Red Dog Hockey Boost

    An attempt was made to get them in he exact same spot on the ice. There is no trickery here. Its straight science. Watch Austin Mathews shoot 2 years ago and then again last year. Hes much more upright and in control of were the puck is going. And again there Chiros and other medical staff all say they were in improved health as it came to sore backs knees and so on.

    So if anyone remembers this far back, when I first got my VH I ripped the Achilles area putting my foot in. Since then, I’ve used a shoe horn to put them on every time I’ve skated with no issue. Well, today I was public skating with my wife and I wasn’t about to bring my 3’ shoe horn. I put my foot in and... rip. So now both of them are damaged. Now, these skates are now 5 years old and while I’m probably due for an update anyway, I want to make these last a bit longer if possible. Of course, going forward I’m going to make sure I use that shoe horn no matter what and have already ordered a small one on amazon to stick in my backpack for public skating. Can anyone recommend an adhesive that would work here? It’s down to the foam itself so I’m not sure if any glue is going to work very well. With where that bit is, you could probably put a couple stitches through it to hold it but I don’t have my industrial sewing machine (yet) to be able to even consider doing it myself.

    Is it just me or do the pictures in the thread just look they were taken at later points in the stride? Note the position and angle of the blade on the ice.

    Help with vision in a cage.

    I have a couple of V08's and have used the Profile II's for a few years (I prefer the grey or the oreo one, the bright white I didn't care for). The Profile II fits the V08 great but make sure you get the size that fits your face... I wear a large Bauer cage on my small V08, the cage and helmet don't have to be the same size. I went with the Profile because it was the closest shape to the old Jofa I had in the 90s (CCM makes something similar but their sizing is odd, medium is way too small and large way too big). As for the Reakt, I've been trying one for the past month and a half on one of my helmets and I'm still on the fence... I like the weight (which I really didn't think would be noticeable), and the color since it is less distracting, but it's a slightly different/smaller shape than the Profile (I prefer the Profile shape over the Reakt) and the bars spacing is ever so slightly different than the Reakt so it took me a while to get used to t. All in all I think both are great choices and both fit well on V08 helmets.

    Strong pain in my feet

    Sounds like a similar problem. Standing or walking around off the ice is no problem for me. Standing and skating around on the ice i get the pain after 10-15 minutes. Playing with two lines and sitting on the bench between shifts, I can play for 90 minutes without problems. I need a good lateral support from my skates. I´m having 220lbs and skate size 6.5. My next try is with Supremes 180, used but in good condition. Stiffest skates i owned so far.

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    But if they're durable who cares? I remember in 2015 when everyone complained about the 1X. Or 2011 about the APX. Bad looks =/= durability.

    Tydan blades

    Blade shape would be a bigger factor. Tydans shape is closer to Step, ie more meat at the heel and toe. Profile could be identical and still be fairly different.

    What is the new one’s material makeup? Foam, felt, and leather? Can you share some detailed views of it?

    Not the new standard thin tongue. The optional one does.

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    Ketchup, mustard, and bratwurst is the theme of this generation of Vapor sticks and skates, so at least it’s consistent if not really coherent.

    Does the new tongue have a moderately stiff thermoplastic piece running 90% of its length like the MLX tongue had?

    Still on VH skates, but I had both my copper rivets on the tendon guards fail and replaced them with t-nuts. Never pushed on the tendon guard and keep them at the rink rather than tossing them in a bag or something.

    Tydan blades

    Tydan mimics the standard profile of steel.

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    I don't think top of the line Bauer or CCM skates are nearly as durable as they should be for their price point. IMO, the new Vapor skates look kind of cheap compared to the FT2. That's ugly bright yellow and such really devalues the look of the skate.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    The new skates have a different type of hook/loop velcro that is much more durable. However I would love to see them use snaps or something more durable as some players really yank on the skate tongue. I get a lot of customers requesting to hard stich the tongue in their skates or to add button snaps.

    David Perron

    Just saw the video on Sportsnet of David with the Cup back home. Looks like he had a ball hockey game/tourney in his hometown and all his buddies were drinking beer from the Cup. Saw his brother Pascal in the video as well.
