    I think they look better when seen along with the practice uniforms than they do with the game uniform.

    2018-2019 Gear Sightings

    I wanted them to use this kind of glove color setup:

    The new STX Surgeon RX3 gear is out.

    The new gloves look well made, and going by appearance they look like an improvement. I still wear the Surgeon gloves I got to review; Would be interested to see how they compare in fit and feel.

    Stick lie & length

    What stick are you currently using? Would you happen to have a picture of you playing to see where your hands are when you skate?

    2018 Warrior Catalogue (gloves/protective)

    Especially when said gloves look like they are made with cheaper materials and don't feel as good as the QRL glove.

    Anyone ever made their own Hockey Bag?

    I'm not smart enough

    Anyone ever made their own Hockey Bag?

    I'm in the same boat. I currently play Tetris to get my gear into a @JunkyardAthletic coach's bag because I'm often taking my gear into NYC subway/buses and there is rarely room for a full size bag, so I've been thinking of designing a bag with adjusted proportions to be a little travel friendly and have backpack ergonomics.

    Super Tacks AS1 Skates

    Same. I had to drop the top eyelet on my FT1s coming from Makos.

    CCM, Bauer, Oakley, and now Under Armou visors?

    The clips don't look too bad but I feel like the Bauer version is better designed. I still feel like visor size is an area that hasn't been optimized. My hypothetical hockey company that will never come to be would offer multiple sizes to reduce the effect of the visor pulling the sides of the helmet outward, but it would hurt profit chances and would be a bad business decision (hence why it won't come to be).

    Warrior QRL glove

    Yeah that is an annoyance I have with most companies and their forced grouping of color zones. I feel like every isolated area should be able to have its own color. I'm sure there are logical reasons why in the manufacturing process they can't just go crazy with it, but I feel like if you're willing to pay for extra materials you should be able to get it.

    Warrior QRL glove

    Same here. The QRL has some slightly better color options but not quite what I want.

    CCM Super Tacks Skate Initial Thoughts

    I don't mind the colors. The design just seems scattered and doesn't tickle my fancy.

    CCM Super Tacks Skate Initial Thoughts

    I'm interested in trying these out but the graphics package isn't really doing it for me.

    Tucked or un-tucked?

    Whether I want to or not, my jersey winds up tucking itself in so I just roll with it.

    2015-16 Gear Sightings

    If I didn't know what they were I'd think they were a rental skate haha.

    Ice House in Hackensack, NJ MSQ Members

    I do play here from time to time but will be out of commission for the next few months with a broken collarbone.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    The new construction looks much improved design-wise. A more refined look will make them a much easier sell in my book.

    Warrior QRL glove

    I've been pretty candid in how Warrior's glove offerings have not worked for me at all to this date, but I won't hold back the fact that the QRLs have really impressed me in their fit and feel. Their release should time well with my clavicle surgery recovery, so I may be in Warrior gloves for the first time (and maybe even custom).

    The 11k was uni-directional which made it a little strange when moving in ways other than the one direction it was supposed to flex. Warrior's design provides even more natural movement without any bit of resistance.

    Digital SLR's

    I want a Sony A7Rii, but will most likely have to settle for an A7ii.

    The Venting Spot

    I'm going to get some plate action next friday.

    Digital SLR's

    As soon as I have money for it, I'm switching from DSLR to full frame mirrorless. I've never been super satisfied with my 7D, so the time is right for me.

    The Venting Spot

    Broke my collarbone on tuesday due to a blindside open ice hit before I touched the puck. Sucks.

    Disappointing gear

    All of the gloves by CCM released after the U+ CLs have disappointed me. The quality of materials and the feel of the products have been (to me) a marked step down.

    STX Surgeon 500 Glove Sizing

    While they are definitely a tight fitting glove, I remained in the same size and they fit my hand fine, just a lot tighter than most gloves. Not in a bad way though. It just comes down to being ok with a tight fit that feels like the glove is more a part of you than your hand being in a glove.
