  1. These were a thing. I can confirm that. I don't remember the exact product name. I want to say your description is pretty good, like a bunch of circles around around a hub.
  2. Love the depth of the review. And I'm definitely a sucker for some high quality hockey equipment pictures.

    Mission Inhaler AC1 or AC2

    To add another angle. I tried on AC1s and AC2s. The 1s felt slightly more sturdy and noticeably lighter. I'm a 215lb dude so the former was slightly more important than the latter since I skate anywhere from 3-5 times a week. So I went with the 1s and couldn't be more happy.

    Sprung inline

    I contacted him on Facebook after placing my last order and everything went smoothly. That's probably your best option.

    Alkali Hockey

    Justin, If a vapor cut is what works best for my heel would I be able to make a pair of Maxs or Shifts work for me? I'm looking to upgrade and I'd honestly like to support you guys.

    Bauer OD1N Project

    So, am I wrong in guessing they were presented a concept then asked for their input and presented a final product?

    Custom Skates / Ice to Inline Conversion

    Didn't want to start another thread. Could I use a hummer frame from a size 10 tour GX7 boot on a size 8.5 one95 boot?

    2013-2014 Gear Sightings

    When they were unveiled they said the players loved the weight from the simplicity of the black jersey.

    Wouldn't shoulder letters be more noticeable during play? From the high angle camera it sorta does the same thing front helmet numbers did.

    Marcelo, what do you think happens first? Shoulder logos going away first for corporate logos or bottom hem sponsors?

    Mission Inhaler Helmet

    I know roller hockey gets the bad reputation with white equipment and such but, high school age ice hockey players today care more about how they look than how they play. I also think part of it with companies like Mission is that they know they make a good product so they could put out a leopard print skate and people would buy it. So why not make it something that'll stand out and let people know from a distance that it's a mission product? I have zero inside information about how hockey products are advertised, but I'd assume we're thought of as skating billboards, so why not give yourself an advantage in that regard?

    Most teams sell bags now. The islanders' cycle is three years I believe so everything was for sale this year. Equipment/toiletry/skate/laundry bags.

    I've seriously picked up those Rolstons like five times but I couldn't bring myself to get them. They're so nice but they just seemed a touch too big. Picked up some Eaton X:60s instead.

    my pick ups over the last two weeks. Mayers, Pandolfo, Robidas. The Robidas are probably my favorite. Narrow, mesh gussets, digital with a digital overlay.
  22. Mission Amp Flyweights.
  23. When they showed Martin practicing during last night's game it also looked like he was wearing tufftek with the full cuff stripes.

    I'm going to assume that it's because it's a two piece painted over. Not fully epoxied over.
  25. Yeah, and you gotta remember that Mario is an owner. I'm sure they told him if he wore the gloves in the game he'd get a decent amount of freebies for the nhl guys.
