  1. Bauer stick code?

    It's been known for quite some time that Bauer acquired Easton's tooling. When I visited them in Blainville last summer they did say that they were still making them for NHLers. It makes no sense to pay a licensing fee for Easton's name in the NHL when they no longer have a global (retail/pro) hockey presence.

    CCM's scan accounts for the whole foot and halfway up the shin, not just the bottom of the foot. Not sure where you figured it was just the bottom of the foot. Kick it down then re-tighten.
  3. Profile advice / feedback?

    I did your steel at 10'. They were used when I did them, so they already had a shape to them, but were uneven in height. I matched the heights then profiled them to 10'. The Step steel is a stock 10'. But the pitch is different.

    It will be the same cost as Bauer customs, not the price you said.

    Nothing to do with the scan. He said it was last year.

    Martin St. Louis.

    I have. Hell, I've seen an entire skate lined in lambswool.

    But they're made the same way. Everyone is still building up lasts at this point. All the scan is doing is giving them more detail. Now, if it completely missed a spot on your foot, blame the scan. But if it's not enough space and you have to create a punch, or it doesn't have enough padding and you have to add a Bunga pad, that's just a part of the breaking in/tweaking process.
  9. VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Yes, you still may have to. Figure skates are prime examples of this. Any measurement/casting/3d scan is static - your foot is dynamic. It can't account for irritation/movement.
  10. New Graf Gloves?

    Yes. Remember, skates were made under license, so Vaughn bought what was in Calgary then got the license.
  11. New Graf Gloves?

    Well, especially what they paid for Graf...
  12. Super Tacks AS1 Skates

    I mean, Graf's wasn't a good one. Making a reservoir to collect water wasn't really the smartest idea IMO.
  13. Boot Stretching in the Southern US

    Yeah, you see that quite a bit nowadays. It's truly something that doesn't really get asked for much anymore. Try a shoe repair shop.
  14. Super Tacks AS1 Skates

    Step steel as well - not sure if it will be if/when it hits retail.
  15. Super Tacks AS1 Skates

    Yeah - you spin the barrel about 10x and the blade unhooks. It is serviceable as well, so if the barrel is broken from a shot, it can be replaced.
