    Stick lie & length

    Puckpilot is 100% correct with his advice. With proper technique, you can totally set aside stick measurements. Yes, a different length or lie might help... but even then, you still want to learn and use proper techniques. Im 5’8” barefoot. The average uncut stick is usually ridiculously long for me. Earlier on, I used that length... but I had to be even more focused on technique, otherwise pucks would be sliding right under my blade and I’d be whiffing on shots... etc. I immediately jumped to your conclusion and lowered my lie. Yes, it made things a little easier... but I was still required to maintain control over a stick that was way too long. Finally, I went back to a 5.5/6 lie and cut the stick. This brought the blade to a better position, as well as improved my ability to handle the stick. The bottom line is that technique always comes first. But after that, you need to find the best balance of length and lie for your body/stance/preferences. You’re tall, but mentioned that your proportions are off (short legs/knuckle dragger arms). Try cutting a stick to a length where the blade lays on the ice evenly, and see what you think. It will also help with the hand positioning you are looking for. If you later realize that you did prefer the old length... THEN look into a lower lie.

    Profiling to aid in backwards skating?

    As you said, You’re still learning to skate... continue learning to skate, and put some extra focus on learning backwards techniques. The best backward skaters in history, couldn’t skate backwards in the beginning either. Be patient.

    Super Tacks AS1 Skates

    the orthobed is the new one with the removable arch supports... doughnuts was referring to the last custom arch support, where you chose from three different insoles.

    Uncomfortable Elbow pads

    That yellow Warrior shit makes me itch like crazy. I don't know what the OP is using, but I'll say that it's possible that some materials can bother some people.

    CCM glove sizing

    I suppose it would depend on the particular glove models/style. Most CCM gloves I have to wear 14". Bauer and Warrior 4 roll styles, I need to wear 13"... but the more anatomical shit in those brands I'm back to 14". the bottom line is, whatever glove you like, buy the size that fits regardless of what size you think you should be or wear in another brand.

    Skate that fits like a Flexlite

    Someone might have a specific answer to your question, but I'll offer this... go and try on everything in the current market. Something now might actually fit better than "what fit best" back then. skates have really changed in the last few years. Not only in their fit profiles, but in materials and moldability.
  12. I wonder if I had a weird pair of Super Tacks, from reading in here. I had skated in Makos, and while I didn't love the aggressive pitch, I was able to skate well in them. The Super Tacks felt even more aggressively pitched to me... and I spent the whole time trying not to fall onto my chin.
  13. I gain nourishment and energy from eating the souls of my enemies. Really, I’ll eat a good protein and carb source 3 or 4 hours before a game. Then in the dressing room I’ll sip on BioSteel. I guess I never experimented from the energy standpoint- I’m a healthy eater by nature. My game day concerns are to avoid heartburn or a serious shit cramp erupting in the second period.

    Bauer 3D Scan

    When JR put me on the machine, it’s analysis/measurement of my weird ass feet was spot on. However, the skate recommendation can only do so much. it recommended that I should be in the nexus line. I see where it would say that as the vapor or supreme OFF THE SHELF in my length would be miserable for me in the forefoot. However, I have tried on Nexus skates, and they entirely too roomy in the heel for me... and my left foot is even worse. Bottom line, the machine can do its best, but it wasn’t programmed to say ‘homie, your feet are bullshit, look elsewhere’. I 100% see it’s value in custom skates, but it can only do so much with people who don’t have relatively normal and symmetrical feet. The machine isn’t flawed... but the human body often is.
