  1. Not a fitting expert but if something as fundamental as size is off as much as you say it is, profiling isn’t going to help much. Bad profiling may compound the problem but you have layers of variables to sort out. And now it is in your head every time something may feel weird you are going to question your skates.

    ccm custom skates

    Which tongue design is that?

    ccm custom skates

    Good to know, I had questions about that as well. I had to have the shoemaker who used to work on everybody’s skates put extra felt in mine because of my boniness

    New True Lid

    Looks like some similarities to the lines of the new holder.

    New Curves

    Dunno if the Coffey curve was even a curve. Just about every 5030 on the rack was marked Coffey back then. Mine didn’t have a 3/4 curve, definitely much smaller. Some had “SC” and “BC” as well which we always thought was small curve and big curve but who knows?

    affordable sticks?

    I think there’s a difference equating some of these small off brand sticks as people who just love the game with the equivalent of ma and pa shops just struggling against the big Walmarts or something like that. A lot of these companies are just putting out junk and trying to hide it with graphics and marketing. And I would be curious, given where they are produced, how serious they take others’ IP. I guess the best way to put it is, it isn’t Rocky training with a log on his back in Chucks while Ivan Drago has the benefit of the latest technology and the little guy triumphs.

    Red Dog Hockey Boost

    Sounds like it isn’t so much the solution but the process of determining the parameters of the solution. You can shim and profile to your heart’s content but it pretty much completely trial and error at this point.

    Diet plan suggestions?

    What is your situation and goals? I don’t get caught up in the latest diets. I basically eat about 2700 calories a day, plenty of carbs, protein, and moderate fats, mostly from nuts and other good sources. I essentially eat a bulking diet because i have a fast metabolism, skate 2-3 times a week, and lift on non-hockey days. Pretty much everything I eat I cook from scratch, I don’t eat a lot of non-carb sugar and my sodium intake is low because I don’t eat much packaged food. I am not obsessive and if I eat some crap here and there I don’t care, although over time your desire to binge on junk kind of goes away. I will go to town on ice cream but that is about it. As for hockey, I am just as bad as with any diet!

    Alternative to True skates?

    Kind of declarative statements about the custom skate making process without any firsthand knowledge of how they do things...

    Kessel to Arizona

    It was one of those circumstances that his time was over. The last two years he put up lots of points but was a massive minus. When Pens won the cup he put up fewer points but was actually a plus player. You don't get him for his defense but there is a line. Add to that Malkin's performance lately, the exit of other players who were key players in the Cup runs, his alleged friction with Sullivan, and it was just time. You can't just keep the exact same team forever and expect to keep winning. I think it was just the end of this cycle and they have to set themselves up for this last act in the Crosby/Malkin era.

    Tendinitis help?

    Mark, Wondered where you have been! I have had tendinitis and tendinosis in various places throughout my life. Running, hockey, bass playing, computer work, etc. it can be frustrating as hell. You go to PT, do all the work, rest, etc. and it feels good. Then you restart the activity and instantly you are back to square one. The jury is still out on a lot of the bands and KT tape but when dealing with frustrating injuries, some things that are low risk are worth trying. I have the most success with ART, which is a type of soft tissue therapy. Lots of chiros are certified. good luck!

    Nice just to have the whole thing settled and move on.

    Red Dog Hockey Boost

    So is it something only applicable and available to high level pros given the analysis needed to determine the parameters for the “shims”?

    Red Dog Hockey Boost

    Yeah, the site is brutal. Tried watching the demo but unless they showed something at the end it said absolutely nothing, couldn’t finish it. Guess you just have to know what it is...

    Alternative to True skates?

    What most are objecting to (at least me) is that he got a skate that didn’t fit, claimed the store couldn’t help him and didn’t provide any details when asked (the fact that the store wouldn’t/couldn’t help runs counter to those here who either have stores that do True as well as customers who have rectified their issues in that manner), and went through the first step of debugging with True and no further. The implication was that True wasn’t treating him right. you are correct about people choosing to spend their money as they wish, but it is a discussion topic here. as for screw ups, i am not going to judge failure rate by what i hear on the internet.
