  1. Both the A6.0 and the XC9 are not very restrictive, I would say the XC9 may even work slightly better, greater flexibility in the body of the glove. It's always best to try them on, but understand that is not always an option, but I think you would be happy with either choice.
  2. Very Slight difference, but shouldn't be something that should sway someone that was using a 65 in an A6.0 into trying the 68 in the XC9.
  3. Not Much of a Story. We Started the offering of 58 flex intermediate and wanted to have greater separation between the two intermediate flexes compared to a closer separation to intermediate to senior.
  4. As far as durability goes, really isn't much of a difference between the two, but the performance will be different for sure as the Xcore will have the insert
  5. Hey Mark, A lot of the differences will be in the blade the XC line will have the Xcore insert to improve feel and the A series will have the dual BRT technology to create a more rigid playability. Shaft dimensions are slightly different that wouldn't make much of a difference to most. Flex profile is only slightly different with the A series only being about 2 to 4 inches lower from Midpoint of the stick and the XC series is mid. As for weight and Balance those will all differ between model and level. Honestly between the 2 sticks you suggest both are great performing sticks and if you like the A4.5 the SBP would be a great fit, but if you are looking to change the puck feel the Xcore 7 would be a good fit. Hope this helps. Thanks, Jason
  6. We don't consider this to be a problem at this point as Some chipping and surface cuts come up from time to time on the sticks, But as others have said most of the time the stick last a decent time after noticing the chips. If you want to PM me to discuss further feel free. Thanks, Jason
  7. CCM FL40 Combo. Adjustable and very lightweight. My 3 year old has been wearing his for a year and no issues. Actually have to get a new one as he grew out of the XS
  8. It is True to an extent. The smart flex technology does allow you to cut it and does not change the flex of the measured flex. If you end up taking 6 or more inches off then it will still measure the same on the 3 point bend test, but the feel of the flex will be different. Anything under the 6 inches should not feel different.
  9. TC4 replaced the TC3 in our stock offerings. Both are available for custom orders if wanted.
  10. The toe shape is slightly different (taller on the TC3) making it seem as the curve is different, but it is a very close comparison to actual curve, but look is only slightly different.
  11. I may have already answered your question via email, but essentially what I link it to is that they do fit slightly large and are labeled 12, 13, 14, but actually run closer to 12.5, 13.5, 14.5. I usually wear a 14 in all other gloves and don't have an issue, but I could go to our 13" and be fine as well so it is a matter of preference and especially with the XC9 smaller would be better to utilize the anatomical fit.
  12. The tough thing is Ribcor's will seem stiffer then an A6.0, but it would probably be in between flexes, but would only be a minor time adjusting to either way so you could go to the 85 or to the 75 and be alright with it The only thing different is that its the lower lie so how much blade is touching the ice depends on how the stick is held. Its a matter of blade placement in regards to how far away the blade is from your body to flatten out the bottom of the blade to the ice. The lie 5's seem to be what will be trending in the near future
  13. The feel will be much lighter than the ST and will have more pop in the release on any of the sticks in our line honestly. As far as the pattern if you have used a e28 and liked it I think your best option would be the TC4 as the MC will be more like the e36
  14. It'd be our TC4 to get it exact for the E28 now
  15. You could do a custom Gionta pattern, but I am not sure that we would have that exact pattern in our database so may need a sample of it. The other thing would be that you would need to order 6 of them for custom. Let me know if you have any further questions about that process.
