    Thoughts on the Sherwood EK15

    Ek15 is still currently my favorite ice stick, but I hate it for inline. Have 3 of them! very light and responsive, and I feel my shots with the EK15 are better than most sticks I’ve used

    Revision mag chassis

    Mine are HiLo setup, only worn for 4 skates so far so can’t help with durability question as of yet

    I went through the same process as everyone else. I noticed the masking tape issue in store, they offered to remove the masking tape from the right boot for me but I said I could just as easily do it and I would prefer that we waited for the boot to cool down to remove it. I glanced over the rest of the skate, but couldn’t really spend a lot of time looking at the bottom as I also had an appointment for a replacement of my cell phone which died, so was in a bit of a time crunch, and don’t get out to that side of town too often so maybe I overbooked. Again none of these issues weren’t fixable by me, and I’m overall happy with the skates. Perhaps as a consumer I didn’t spend enough time looking at every detail, but then again, someone there has to have the job to do such a thing before the skate goes out. I guarantee if I was that person I would’ve caught these issues and cleaned them up really quick before sending out, because details matter. All of these issues were noticed prior to usage as I have had them for 3 weeks but due to a wrist injury as well as a death in the family I hadn’t skated in a month prior to this week. I may mention the glue issue to the shop when I order the ice version, but like I’ve mentioned in another of my replies, the issue wouldn’t probably be noticeable on the ice skate due to where the holders are riveted on to the boot. Some other slight cosmetic issues on the boot exist but I don’t really care about those so much since it’s roller hockey and the boot is likely to get beat up anyways after some usage

    please note that i have the inline version. not sure how many of those you have done, but the holder on the ice version would cover up the glue issue i am seeing, as the copper rivet on the front tower would press down and combine toe cap to the boot. The tower on the inline boot is much more narrow and shorter, the copper rivets on the front tower do not reach the toe cap edge, hence why people probably aren't seeing this issue as much.

    could also be that some people arent reporting the issues to the shops. Mine were easy enough fixes, just removing the taping material from the right skate vent inners, and cleaning up some of the other stuff. Just something that couldve been caught pre consumer to give a bit of a better impression, but nothing out there. Perhaps i am harder on stuff like this having worked in a QC lab prior to moving into research.

    True called the shop I was scanned at and asked them if I wanted indoor or outdoor wheels, so I went with indoor thinking I’d re sell them. Unfortunately I forgot it was a Hilo style chassis so I couldn’t just switch my Konixx over so I’ll be selling the wheels gently used if it’s truely soft vs firm indoor wheels it wasn’t conveyed well to the shop. Really it should be on the order form.

    first time using my custom inlines. They are super comfortable, pretty good performance so far, just a few notable issues. 1. QC on the skates is just aweful. there's a gap on the bottom where it wasn't properly glued between the overlay and the composite that i had to fix, and just globs of glue all over the skate in areas. Also some masking tape was left in the toe cap vents. things you could look over and fix in like 10 minutes, that shouldn't really be on the consumer even if they aren't difficult to fix, but its almost like they make the skates and just immediately toss them in a box without looking them over. 2. wheels that come with the skates should be customizable in terms of hardness. I was only given options for indoor or outdoor wheels, and since im 205 the indoor wheels that came with the skate are too soft. For a truly custom skate, i think they should offer all 3 levels of the RV flex indoors (xsoft, soft, firm). In the end, i think the wheels are kind of gimmicky and will just purchase some konnixx wheels anyways, but itd be nice to be given something i can use out of the box (and yes, i know most off the shelf skates come with softer options, but being able to customize wheels would be a nice touch for something made one off). All in all, im fairly happy with them after one skate, but we will see if they hold up to the abuse. If i continue to like them i may get the ice version later this year.
  10. i guess Anti Niemi shouldve been offered this contract, since the only stipulation is to have won a stanley cup.

    That’s about the time it took me to get mine, roller

    The new STX Surgeon RX3 gear is out.

    I really liked the shoulder pads, but there wasn’t a good fit for me as large was a bit too long at 5’8” 210. I think the large should work well for you though. IMO they are a good value

    Stick Length for 5'9" son?

    actually, a intermediate stick may be perfect. I am 5'8" and still have to cut down intermediates a small amount, so an intermediate may be perfect, especially at 125 lbs. Id find a place with an intermediate stick and see if it stands roughly the length up to his nose without skates.

    Tendinitis help?

    maybe i should give this a try. I stopped playing for 3 weeks during the rink shutdown at Taylor for NARCH, and my wrist was feeling great, but getting back to it Sunday and immediately the pain returns, worse yet i put it through back to backs.

    Garage sales in Columbus?

    Nyquist isn’t close to getting back any skill they lost, and I say this being a Nyquist fan.
