    2009 Bauer Catalogue

    Have any of you heard whether or not BauerID will offer the X60 stick for customization like they did with the XXXX stick? If so, when might it be available to order?

    2007 Mission Catalogue

    I was very excited about the Mission tapered V-Hex blade until I saw the price...wow over $64 USD :o. No thanks...gonna have to rethink my tapered blade strategy for the 2007 season.

    2007 Mission Catalogue

    Upon first look and read of the catalog, I really like the offerings from Mission. Especially the stick line. Question though...either I missed it, or it's not there in the catalog image, but...all I saw for blades were the pictures...no mention of curve depth, location, curve length, lie, weight, open/closed face, or other etc. particulars. Does anyone know the particulars for the V-Hex Hossa Curve?

    2007 Nike/Bauer Catalogue

    Wow...nice catalog. I'm certainly glad to see a tapered shaft/blade offering from Bauer again. Now I don't have to snarf up all XV P88 blades since the XXX-Lite tapered will be available. Also would like to give the XXX-Lite tapered wood blade a try.

    Your current equipment

    Helmet: Mission Intake w/ Bauer Truevision cage. Nike 0004 no cage. Shoulder pads: Bauer 6000 - Lightweight and Protective, but a little bit Linebackerish Elbow pads: Nike V10 - Extremely comfy and protective. Gloves: Nike Quest - great fit. Pants: Mission 10000 girdle w/Easton Synergy 700 shell. Lightweight and extremely agile. Plenty of protection for no-check beer league. CCM Prostock (May05 Retired) Very protective, but bulky as hell. Shin pads: Nike V10 - Extremely comfy and protective. I love the way the top strap secures the guard to the leg. Skates, Ice: Bauer Supreme 8000 very comfy. Skates, Roller: Tour BlueMax with ABEC9. Sticks: Bauer XV with P88, Inno Novius with tapered McCarty, CCM 110 Recchi, Bauer VI P92.

    New Inno patterns

    Even as small a producer Innovative is, you would think that with the NHL season gone, that they'd be looking to recover that lost part of their market somehow. This would be the best time to get products into the retail market for them I would think...perhaps I'm missing something? PS: Thanks for the pics Sid. ;)

    recci curve

    I use the Recchi curve as my primary curve...I like it better than the Sakic...someone once described the Recchi as the jack of all stickhandling trades, but a master of none. This describes it perfectly. In my case (when I held the 3 composite blades together), the lie of the Recchi falls between the Modano and the Sakic. I don't think there is a direct counterpart to it in the Easton lineup, but it compares somewhat between the Sakic and the Shanahan IMO. Not as open at the toe as the Sakic and not as severe a curve as the Shanny. I wish I could find a tapered version of it in some form or fashion. I have no problem lifting shots, roofing shots, or keeping them low with the Recchi. Backhands are easy as are deflections. I find toe manuevers especially simplified with the Recchi.

    Your current equipment

    I'm with canhockey7 re: BNH liking me... but they're prolly not fond of my twigs. Helmet: Nike 0004 w/Bauer Tru-Vision 4000 titanium finish Gloves: Nike Quest 3 Skates: Bauer Supreme 8000 Sticks: CCM V110 with Recchi, CCM V115 with York, and Easton Eflex shaft with CCM V60 Recchi blade. Elbow Pads: Nike V10 Shoulder Pads: Bauer 6000 Pants: Nike Quest 2 Shin Guards: Nike V-10 I just recently replaced my old equipment I used when I first started playing several years ago. Keep in mind, I play in a minimal contact adult league so the top of the line is not overly necessary, but I do like the fit and performance features to be there as well as a decent degree of durability. It's hard to beat the Bauer/Nike fit for comfort in my book.

    Miraclestone special deal

    I love the stone too...good stuff. However, the crosscut, on the other hand...takes a bit to get used to. My skate nor my kid's skate fit either of the two slots easily so I had to hold it at a severe angle (compared to the online demo at their site) to get the diamond sticks to contact the skate blade. My skates turned out to be fine, but my kid's did not. Actually I had to get them re-sharpened as a result of the poor job I did with the crosscut. What happend is the tool would lose contact with the skate blade at certain areas where the skate blade holder flared and was too thick for the insertion point on the tool. I'm not suggesting to avoid it, but rather to be cautious when using this tool, go slow until you get the hang of it.

    Miraclestone special deal

    I have received and used the spray... It's good stuff. It keeps the tape from holding water quite well...So far it has outlasted my average wax job on the stick tape. Two weeks, 4 practices and 2 games later, the original spray job is still holding strong. 2/4/05 Add another week...still the same tape.

    2005 CCM Catalogue Review

    I wish CCM would jump on the bandwagon and offer a Tapered 2 piece shaft/blade system like most other mfgrs. I'd like to rig a tapered 120 shaft with a 110 blade...or something of the sort.

    2005 Easton Catalogue Review

    The sakic is more deeper and much more open than the iginla I've used the sakic before and didn't like it due to the overly open-ness at the toe...messed up my stick handling. I have not seen the Iginla though. It's odd to me that the two can be so drastically different yet have the same description (except for the open toe part). Both are described by Easton as 1/2", mid, 5.5 lie.
