    Bauer Re-Akt 150 - First Look

    Gold or Maroon. My lhs has a nos Gold REAKT helmet they are holding for me now but it 's always nice to look at the newer helmets if possible.

    Bauer Re-Akt 150 - First Look

    Looks great. I'm going to need a helmet to replace the original REAKT at some point. It looks like this could do just that. Except, it doesn't come in the color I need. So if the color I need is not shown I'm just out of luck?

    New True Lid

    It looks super low profile? Not for large, round head?

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    additive or lubricant How would you apply using the Sparx? Same way, on the blade?

    That's not right. I would never have a Sparx if that were the case. Talk about chasing your tail. I switch between 3 rings and my alignment doesn't change. If I were to get a new ring and it was off I would return it.

    Where can I get J-Clips?

    Those aren't exactly what comes on the REAKT. Will they work for the op?

    Observed. When sharpening something with a lot of heel and toe, the wheel stops for a fraction of a second when it hits the steel.

    Women’s breezers with better protection

    I was wondering that too. I found a pair from my favorite college being sold as Bauer Pro Stock, size tag only says M/M. And they say they were from the women's team. ???

    Sure, lots of variables. And what people consider worn out is completely subjective. Kind of like tires on a car.

    Wow, how can you only get 6 months from a pair of Step? They should keep their edge and need minimal sharpening, right?

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    Sure. When you're setting up with the optical tool 6 clicks moves the ring quite a bit. I moved it 2 clicks ran 1 pass, checked the edges. Would 1 pass be enough? Possibly that is the issue. This is with the same skate and sharpening ring. 238mm LS4, 1/2" Fire ring.

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    So I finally have one of these at home and have a couple of questions. Alignment is good, just off a hair. But I'm a button pusher and want it exact. I've turned the adjustment knob 6 clicks in the same direction now with absolutely no change on my Blademaster edge checker. To the point that the alignment ring is off quite a few millimeters. What's up with that? If the edge checker is spot on and the alignment ring is not is that normal due to tolerances? The SPARX setup process and wheel is just a guide?
  13. What the ____? I just purchased a new Bauer RE-AKT. Should I throw it in the garbage?

    Best looking helmet cage combo

    What's the deal with the white cages? I don't see too many.
