    I need some big man help!

    Good deal. I would try those first before biting the bullet and ordering a pair of Tacklas just due to the cost and it doesn't look like Tackla will have any more in stock in size 60 until the end of the month. I do personally favor the Tacklas since they're really heavy duty but they'll cost twice as much unless you're lucky and find a used pair. It appears that that Tackla is now being carried again by the major retailers but no one is carrying size 58 or size 60 so if you do end up having to order Tacklas you may want to inquire with one of them to see if its something that they can order for you due to the shipping costs from Finland. If you do have to order a pair from Finland, be prepared to drop about $204 once you factor in shipping.

    If you want black: https://www.icewarehouse.com/Bauer_Supreme_S29_Ice_Hockey_Pants/descpage-BS29IP.html I'm going to have to revise my guide. Looks like the S29 is what Bauer makes in 2019 in 3xl.

    Thanks for posting my guide. You will need to find the XXL pro stock Jofa/Reebok shoulders if you want real protection or the XXL Sherwood 5030 but they really don't offer anything in protection. I have a 58-60" chest and both fit; the Reebok fit without any kind of tweaking. You'l have to scour Ebay and Sideline Swap to find a pair.

    They may not bother with 306mm holders like with the first True holder, I had to get LS Edges on mine for the same reason.

    "New" Tackla pants at retailers again?

    Good catch. It all looks like the gear that they have for sale on their Finnish site and what their importer in Connecticut carries so perhaps he was able to negotiate with HM and IW to carry the products again. I wear the Air 5000 pants and the ones for sale on these sites are identical to the pair that I ordered from Finland.

    Women’s breezers with better protection

    You can get this but just a bit of bigger pain in the behind now to do it. They pop up on Ebay all the time. The North American importer in Connecticut is listing them on there all the time.

    I believe if you provide the serial number or order number in the footbed of your boots, they can make an identical pair to them.

    Lightspeed Edge Holder Mounting

    Heat the holders with a heat gun before popping Black Step Steel in for the first time. I had the same problem, too and once I heated the holders up to make the plastic expand and more maleable, I was finally able to pop in my Step Steel.

    Strong pain in my feet

    You only feel plantar fasciitis in the heel and if your heel is posted up enough with something like Superfeet, it will typically go away or be real minimal painwise. I have it and a bunch of other foot issues. I had to get customs.

    What kind of skate are you wearing and what of foot arch do you have?

    Warrior new on ice equipment supplier to ECHL

    They've been the official equipment provider for the SPHL as long as I've been a fan and other than the Covert twigs snapping at their kick points constantly, I haven't heard any complaints from anyone but players really only use their sticks, helmets, gloves and pants. I don't know if many players use their protective and obviously they don't make skates so you see everyone with Bauer, CCM, or True. My understanding with the AHL and ECHL is that any player on a two-way contract can use whatever gear they want and only guys directly signed by the minor teams are obligated to use CCM (now Warrior). I was at a couple Calder Cup games last year and most of the top prospects for the Stars & Marlies weren't using CCM gear.

    My Bauer sticks

    I can't get a custom lie and only can get twigs 4" over standard length so that's a bit of a letdown.

    If you're in the US, the costs to ship them back and forth between the countries may get pricey and who knows what True would charge you, if they would even want to mess with it. You may be better off getting someone like Bay Area Hockey Repair to do it for you.
