    Sherwood Rekker M90 info

    It is a solid stick, but like other Sher-wood sticks I wouldn't expect performance like the top of CCM/Bauer/Warrior. It feels like a slight tier down to me. But I love the grip and the new stiffer blade compared to the EK60.

    Are low kick sticks just hype?

    Which also makes sense that 99% of the guys that can blow pucks by me are using Supreme, Nexus, Tacks, Jetspeed.

    I don't even look at it as "low kick gets off faster so goalie has less of a time to react." It's more of "I have less time to ensure proper technique and load so low kicks allow me to just quickly fling it at the net trying to get around legs or a block." The shot ends up being more consistent as the stick does more of the work for me.

    I shoot slower with the low-licks than I do the Supremes and Tacks. But it is way easier to get off quickly and consistently, where as I really have to load the Tacks and Supreme to get a good shot off. But it comes off a few MPH faster.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    I was expecting thinner like the old Bauer tongues. These still feel a bit thick for my liking as if I crank the laces I start to get lace bite near my instep. I enjoy the tongue more than the stock one though just for the lower profile.

    Is it the newest one? I thought they were called thin pro or something that is why I am asking

    Nah, get the 1X knee guards. Cheaper and they come with a girdle to hold them up. Way less bulky too but equally protective and slightly less comfy.

    Yup! Did you check your floor to knee measurement before picking them?

    New Pads (CCM E4.9)

    34 V3 is probably about a 32 in modern CCM. V3 pads would break down and get smaller over time, and CCM plays a bit bigger than other brands in terms of sizing (especially old Vaughns).

    2018 Third Jerseys

    I really want a legit one. Might one day be worth as much as a Fisherman jersey haha.

    Any shin guards with good knee protection?

    The biggest disappointment was when I brought it up to multiple CCM reps and they shrugged their shoulders... the pro stock Tacks shin guards are so much better for knee padding.

    Any shin guards with good knee protection?

    That is why I added Poron shot blockers to the inside of the knee. CCM really thinned out the foams there to show off the D3O from the 20K to the Ultra Tacks. Super disappointing they haven't really addressed it.

    The jerseys though!

    Bauer vs Step lawsuit

    I find it interesting that CCM's community question site had a questionnaire the day this happened asking whether or not they would switch skates if they couldn't use a steel they preferred.
