    "New" Tackla pants at retailers again?

    They seem to be basically the same design and construction but there seems to be some minor cosmetic differences on the stuff newly in stock on the major online retailers. Like I said, the liner colors seem different and the one Tackla leg diamond vs two seem to be the major differences between these "new" pants vs the same old ones on the Finish website. My guess is they're the same pants at the core with just some minor differences in looks to "freshen" it up a bit. Still, nice to seem them being offered again on the big online stores. The pants may not have the latest and greatest materials and marketing tech...but they're still durable tanks and I'm just a fan of that euro fit.
  2. I may just be late to the game in realizing this but has someone new started making and selling Tackla hockey pants in North America? I just received a pair of 1051 pants direct from the Tackla webstore in Finland (clearance priced and shipping ended up equaling the sale price of the pants) but on a lark was googling Tackla pants and saw that Ice Warehouse, Hockey Monkey, and even Hockey Tron are now selling Tackla pants again. They use the same model names...1051, 951, 9000 etc...and seem to be mostly the same construction as the old models that have been around forever but with a few differences in construction such as the design of the kidney guards or the color of the liner. They all also seem to have only one Tackla diamond on the left leg vs one on each leg like they've done for years (with a few exceptions). Oddly enough, the finish Tackla website makes no mention of these new looking pants and only have the same old models available that have been around for at least a decade. Is this something new from Montreal or some one else? And are they basically the same style pants we're all used to? Thanks!
  3. Currently skating on size 271 SB4 holders and thinking of getting some new skates that come with 263 SB4 holders. Since I've already invested in some sets of 271 Tydan steel profiled the way I like it, I'm thinking of changing the 263 to 271 on the new skates. Would that require drilling new holes or would the one size difference on the holders fit the same? Thanks!

    Youth sizing for hockey helmet/cage?

    Awesome, thanks for the info! Out of curiosity, what have kids that size (my nephew is 3'6") been using up to now normally?
  5. My 5 year old nephew is wanting a hockey helmet and cage as he's been starting to learn to play hockey. I was looking at the usual online shops and wasn't quite clear on sizing for youth helmets. Are there even such things? I just saw the usual listing of helmets from large to medium to small with some extra-small sizes. I asked for his head circumference and should have that soon, but do youths just normally wear xs helmets or am I just missing the youth helmet section? thanks!

    90's Skates

    CCM 752s where my first and serves me long and well and probably my favorites from back then. Also liked the Micron Mega Air 90s had for awhile. I ended up going to 952s, sold them and got 1052s which lasted me for years(with a few years off from hockey) right up until I bought some Reebok 11K whites which then lead me to my current Makos, which are my all time favorites!

    CCM 710 or 310 HELMET

    Any reason why the new 710 helmets are retailing for so much less than the Resistance helmets? Aren't the 710's an updated version of the Resistance?

    How long do Warrior custom glove orders take?

    I think it's also worth noting that from what I read in another thread here, Warrior custom gloves are no longer giving the wide range of customization on their top end models like in the past. They are now offering versions of their gloves (at least for the Coverts I looked at) that aren't quite up to their top end versions and have relatively limited customization geared more for team orders and cost savings on their end. I understand why they did it, but really wish they had announced the change ahead of time, I wouldn't have put off ordering custom Covert gloves.

    Warrior QRL glove

    The Warrior Hockey Customizer has been updated with the new QRL gloves and it looks like they've added sticks back as well! The glove customization options are pretty damned impressive and does allow for different colors for both the index and pinky portions of the glove! Looks like I know what my next pair of gloves are going to be.

    Warrior QRL glove

    If you look at their QR3, they have 2 color ways that do have the outside and inside color to match, it's the white and black, and their white black and red option. Oddly enough, none of their other QR3 color ways do it though.

    The QR3 has some interesting color options, but I'm waiting for the customizer to get a QRL my way lol.

    2015-16 Gear Sightings

    I actually don't mind the look in general, it's clean, and though "simple" it's not nearly as dull as Carolina's blanding down of their jerseys. It does remind me of soccer jerseys in a sense, but for Miami that may not be a bad thing, and it does make them stand out. Better to embrace a unique identity than be like Tampa and try to appropriate the Leafs and Red Wings. The one parts I don't quite like are the socks and the neck laces. The color band on the socks seems way too wide for my eyes, especially on the home socks....that large white space just doesn't work for me. I'm also fall into the camp of "if you're not an old-time team then you don't wear neck laces", the fact that these laces aren't even remotely functional just makes it a worse affectation to me. Faux vintage should be avoided. Anyhow, it seems to be following the league trend of "simplifying" jersey designs. Hopefully, it's not in order to create space for future ads.

    Low end stick help.

    Any opinions/experience with the Easton Stealth CXST and C7.0? With the current sale at HM both can be gotten for around/below the OPs target price, heck I am even tempted to grab a C7.0 for less than $50 if it's a decent stick.

    Low end stick help.

    I'm currently using a Sherwood Rekker EK40 and think it would fit your specifications quite well. Mine is an intermediate 55 flex PP28 (like an e28 from Easton) but you can also find it in the usual P92 and P88 clone. It's a relatively light and low kick stick and is plenty whippy for my wimpy arms and average technique. It's proven very durable handling hard fought faces offs and defensive stick work without issue, and it's felt great to me for the wristers that are the shots I mostly take. Most online retailers seem to have it for about $99 but with their sales you can get it for a good bit less. I know it wasn't one of the sticks you listed, and you're coming from a mid-kick stick, but to me Sherwood is tops when it comes to price to quality/performance and if you don't mind a low-kick stick, it is a real winner.
