  1. https://hockeyfaceshields-com.myshopify.com/collections/masks/products/zero-i-adult-mask Anyone going to try it? I love my Elite but the thing just gets too hot and the thick plastic frame is distracting.

    Warrior Alpha QX 13" gloves red brand new w/tags

    Curious. What didn't you like about them? Or was it an unneeded Christmas gift? Lol.

    Jetspeed vs the Jetspeed 300

    I have both. Top end boot for inline and the 300 for ice (I don't make it out of the ice near enough to justify buying the top end ones). I was pretty surprised how close they feel in quality. I feel like the top end boot is a little stiffer and more protective, but not enough that I've noticed a huge difference. I'm also, ironically, a much better ice skater than inline skater so I'm not sure if that plays a role on my judgment or not.
  4. Try the jetspeeds if the others don't work out. I have a really narrow heel and a pretty wide forefoot and they fit me great. I'm not a professional skate fitter, but I know my heel stays locked and I never feel cramped width wise in the toebox.

    The Sweet Spot

    First two goal game in 3 seasons last week. 5 hole rebound off the goalies mask and a wide wraparound that went in. Feels good to contribute again. We won 7-2.
  6. Did some work on the WRX...

    I'm 30. I'm real sick of even bothering with them. Lol.

    The Venting Spot

    Broke up with the girlfriend today. 3 years, we live together, etc... just kind of slowly fell out of love. Has literally never happened to me before. There's no animosity for her, I just realized I wasn't happy anymore and it was rubbing off on her. So I had the conversation with her, like an adult. And holy shit. Apparently I'm a terrible human being. I knew it was going to be hard, but it was the right thing to do for both of us. Relationships are bullshit sometimes. I don't hate her and would like to someday be friends with her but goddamn. Tell me I'm not the only one to go through this.
  9. FWIW that price is super high. I had to get my headgaskets replaced on my old Forester which is a notorious and expensive problem with subaru's due to the boxer engine. I paid $1700 for the whole job including having the heads machined. Take it to a mechanic that specializes in Japanese cars.

    Blocking shots and chirping

    I may have an unpopular opinion here, but non aggressive chirping is a blast. Especially if it's self deprecating. Like if I see a guy totally screw up something he tries to do? I'm gonna ask the guy to quit stealing my moves (ie; whiffing on a pass, falling when no one is near you, etc) Also, if I'm playing against some dirty SOBs that are hooking, slashing and tripping me and my team? I will relentlessly verbally abuse them. Even from the bench. Because fuck those guys. Shot blocking is a solid if you're not afraid of the pain and have the proper gear. Don't do it if you don't have a full cage, etc. Unless you hate having teeth. It can provide for some epic moments.

    how to practice handling at home

    Get one of the mini stick handling balls or a golf ball. Really helps with your speed.
  13. Bought my first ever new new car last Thursday. 2018 Subaru WRX Premium. This thing is a freaking blast. Mountain road glamour shot... haha. And after getting the tint done. Much roomier than the 05 I had for a while in my early 20s. Hockey bag fits perfectly in the trunk and the rear seats fold down so my sticks fit perfectly too.

    New Era of Adidas Jerseys Begins

    Glad the Avs moved back to their classic 90s look. For whoever mentioned the Rockies colors... red, yellow, and blue, in their pure hues, is a pretty bad design choice. Too many contrasts going on.

    The Sweet Spot

    It is. I've been in an 02 Forester for 7 years. It's nice to rejoin the land of boosted AWD.
  16. Have you tried going to a hockey shop and getting fitted for skates?

    Two awesome days in a row. Got a new set of the other kind of wheels!

    The Sweet Spot

    Won a beer mug for winning our inline championship game! Nice to see the league display a sense of humor... also got some tape, a folding allen key set, and a stick of deodorant. Haha.
  19. 2 is probably a good option. If you buy recreational skates now and decide you want to play roller hockey later then you're buying 2 new pairs of skates instead of 1. Keep in mind though if you're skating outside that concrete and asphalt are a lot tougher on skates than ice or sportcourt.

    The Venting Spot

    Realizing the money my grandma left me when she passed away in 97 is unavailable to me when I asked for access to a small portion of it because of the way my father managed the account due my grandma's boyfriend being an incompetent ?!#&. Hurray...
  21. It helps if people know what type of skates you're wearing. But the "speed wobbles" just mean you haven't built up the necessary muscles in your ankles and feet yet. It happens to everyone when they're starting out. If everything else about the sizing feels right then stick with them, go to public skates, take a class, go to stick and puck. Skate, skate, skate. You'll get there.

    New Avision Zero Visor/Cage Combo

    Feel free to post in this thread! I'm interested but don't currently have an extra $90 for another cage.
  23. I think he gets the point that he shouldn't play like Kesler in a men's league. But size can come into play! You've just gotta be smart and not a prick about it. It's not about contact or physical play, it's about having that extra bit of reach, putting your body in between the other player and the puck, and screening the other goalie. But again, to be able to do this, you've gotta improve your skating otherwise it will be pointless.

    Congrats! I just got a promotion from assistant supervisor to supervisor and I only got a 10% bump. Haha.

    New Avision Zero Visor/Cage Combo

    I haven't seen anything on the weight yet. The one other thing I hope it fixes is the Elite is too short for my head. Just barely, by like an inch or so. It covers everything but it makes the fit kind of awkward.
