    The Venting Spot

    Well, I had the first drain capped on Monday and was excited that I was finally making progress. This afternoon I started having pain around the second drain site & it's not really improving. Looks like I'll have to get seen in the morning. I'm hoping it's nothing major. I just really want to be done with these drains.

    I had both mine pop off within 1 to 2 skates after buying them. Had them replaced on 1 skate twice with rivets and they still broke. Eventually I just went to Home Depot and bought a nut and bolt that fit in the hole for less than 2 dollars. Haven't had a single issue since. I do put my socks over my tendon guards, but its obvious after this use the tendon guard can take the abuse, just using rivets was a cheap option for production when there are better options for barely anything more in cost.

    Ribcor 4 line.

    Weird move as it seems the top priced point sticks are not the most purchased. I know a few stores in Canada who don't even carry the top sticks.

    This appears to be the first time they're doing it.

    Ribcor 4 line.

    Relax! He probably meant that they don't continue to change the whole line every year. Only replace the top of the line stick and change the rest every two years. At least thats waht i heard.

    Ribcor 4 line.

    Wrong, they change the whole line every year. 2018 - 3D - Pro3 - 65k - 63k 2017 - Trigger 2 - Pro PMT - 64k - 62k 2016 - ASY - 49k - 47k - 45k 2015 - Reckoner - 48k - 46k - 44k 2014 - 40k - 30k - 28k - 26k Do some research next time. Took me 30 seconds to find that. Google is your friend.

    Literally at a loss for words...

    Ribcor 4 line.

    No, CCM as a whole changes the full stick line every other year and the top of the line stick every year.

    Ribcor 4 line.

    Wonder if that's a sign the Ribcore as a stick line is on it's last legs (it's been around awhile now, since 2013 I believe when Reebok started it) and they'll replace Ribcore with another low-kick line similar to how the Jetspeed replaced RBK as the variable/hybrid kickpoint model.
  12. Turning the toe to the right fixed most of the problem, I may play around with the height but its at 4, moving it to 3 seemed too far down (maybe if there were a 3.5 setting) but it doesn't really skip anymore with the toe turned right. The LS3 steel has a big heel on it so it makes sense. If you look at my LS3 steel picture and compare it to normal steel its a significantly different shape. Anyway all good for now, thanks
  13. Yup, amazing what one click will do.

    Ribcor 4 line.

    Only the top of the line stick is changing this year.

    Ribcor 4 line.

    Seeing the promotion for the upcoming trigger 4 pro it looks like only the top of the line stick is being advertised. Normally, the whole line gets teased, but in this case it is only the one stick. Are they only releasing one stick, or will the rest will be announced later?

    Just watched it - looks perfectly normal, but our tech team will take a look and get back to you.

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    The wheel is hitting too high. Lower it.
  19. I just sent a video of it with the toe facing right, definitely seems better, but check the email and get back to me, thanks
  20. I am saying the toe still has the issue that the heel has (that little skip, its just not as extreme). Considering most steel is shorter, wouldn't lowering the wheel help assuming I can as far as the picture I posted of my contact point goes? I can tell if that skip didn't happen the sharpening would be perfect (it skated good), I am just trying to avoid making an indentation and hard hit at initial contact since long term it would get worse

    As long as you set the toe height higher you should be all set. Give it a try and reach out to us directly with any questions.
  22. Ok, I know I can just test this to know the answer, but wouldn't the re-contact with the heel when switched around just do the same thing? Or is the contact on the far side (when the toe is facing right) not as extreme? Because per the picture I posted, the toe still has a little dent just not as defined

    Hey Steve from Sparx here....All you need to do to address this issue is turn the skate around so the toe is facing right. Although some videos still show the skate with toe facing to the left (towards the handle), we have since recommended the toe to the right for this specific reason - to allow you to set a higher contact point on the toe of your skate which will allow the ring to also ride higher up the heal. That should solve your issue. If you need any help, reach out to us at help@sparxhockey.com

    If you’re using taller steel you should use the risers. That’s what they’re for. Besides that, adjusting the height is worth a shot. See how it comes out.

    I really want a legit one. Might one day be worth as much as a Fisherman jersey haha.
  26. I am getting some wheel "skipping" with my LS3 steel, I would rather not use the goalie risers like some say since it wasn't meant to need them and I feel like a ton of people have to use STEP steel that is also higher (like the LS3 steel). Here is my contact point and a picture showing almost an indentation of 4 passes. Doesn't look ideal but seemed to skate ok, that being said after 10 sharpenings with 4 passes each I would imagine this would ruin my steel and almost give it a large indentation with a point where if skips and transitions to the bottom (from too much pressure on impact I guess). I could always move the contact point down, but I feel like I would be missing important heal and toe sharpening points. Anyone know if I move this contact point down if I am going to suffer on heal/toe sharpness? (PICTURE LINKS BELOW, let me know if there is a way to post them, there doesn't seem to be) Picture 1 Picture 2 of wheel contact point

    They’re worse than the Predators jerseys. By a mile. WTF
