    Bauer 2s Pro Eyelets?

    How come?

    I haven’t. The air drying seems to work well but the damage is done regardless. I’ve wondered if the sole plays a part in that.

    Custom skates

    Has anyone here had experience they can share with MyBauer customs? Specifically 2S Pros or 2X Pros?

    In terms of durability, no. But I don’t think I can get the same comfort from Bauer or CCM. Which is a problem when you skate as often as I do. The trade offs are just disappointing when you spend so much on skates, regardless of the brand. But I’m sure all 3 are more concerned with quantity over quality at this point.

    Don’t really have the money to drop 2k at the beginning of the year on skates or I’d definitely do that. My MX3s took the same abuse with no issues for about 8 months prior to the True switch. That’s why I’m considering MyBauer. The injected eyelets and wear patches are small but significant additions. It’s disappointing that True can’t offer similar solutions to common problems.

    As of now it’s my career so I’m on the ice weekly. It’s weekends like last one that hurt (30+ hours on ice between AAA/Junior). But the thing is, I take great care of them. Insoles come out immediately after use and they’re drying directly in front of a fan no later than an hours after each use. Rusting out. Since the foam has compacted within the last 4/5 months, I’ve had to crank the laces around the instep which has resulted in some of them pulling out.

    For the first 6 months I absolutely loved them. If I weren’t doing beer league/youth and only working higher levels I probably wouldn’t have the issues just based on mileage. They fit well and are much easier on the feet for a 4 game set than retail. Other complaint is that they retain water like crazy and depending on how much you sweat, you could be standing in a puddle after a game or two.

    I’ve had my pair for just under a year and my biggest complaint is durability. It’s been awful in my experience. Granted I skate almost exclusively as an official and can sometimes be on the ice for up to 10hrs a day, I take really great care of my skates. The eyelets/tendon rivets constantly come loose. The liner has compacted to almost nothing which has ruined the fit and I’ve got large holes where the tongue rubs the liner near the top two eyelets. Overall pretty disappointed that $1000 skates have a bout a years worth of life. I’d go back to Bauer or try CCM but I’m afraid they can’t replicate the zero negative space fit. Anyone had experience with custom 2X Pros? They looked promising in terms of wrap/ eliminating negative space.

    Too bad blue is reserved for the Nexus line because that skate is begging for a One95-ish graphics package.

    With the success of True, Bauer could literally rebrand the original Mako and they’d sell like crazy. The latest Vapor and these unreleased Supreme pics are getting my hopes up for an eventual resurrection.

    @Nicholas G I’ll give the liquid tape a try. Do you just cover the entire surface of the Euler? Has anyone had experience with Trues cloth liner? A big issue of mine is that I sweat a lot more than the average person. I’m guessing that liner would be better for moisture mgmt but less durable.

    Anyone else have major eyelet and tendon guard rivet issues? Holder rivets are next by the looks of it. I’m exclusively a linesman and I’ve had mine for 10 months (1000 games give or take). I remove footbeds and fan dry after every use but these skates retain water so much it seems impossible to fix these issues. Also, has anyone here had experience with full custom skates from CCM/Bauer? How was the adjustment back to traditional skates?

    Very useful input. I plan on rebaking just to get an overall better wrap. When I originally baked the skates, I had the tongues (which are very stiff and thick when new) pushed down too far which resulted in extra negative space in the midfoot. Would you recommend a full bake before spot heating or vice versa? If it even matters. I believe the arch problem is to do with too much space rather than not having enough. So I’m thinking I’ll try superfeet or the new CCM insoles.

    Figured. How thick should the tissue be folded to, roughly? 4-6 mm? Don’t wanna push it out too far and have negative space there.
