    Does anyone have the updated instructions for baking their skates? I saw a video somewhere of SVH showing how to do it now with keeping the top eyelets unlaced and using shrink wrap but can't find it anywhere. I'd like to rebake my skates tonight if someone has a link to that video or has an updated set of instructions.

    It's probably fine. I wouldn't ship anything from HF. Most people in the US live relatively to close one and with their usual 20% off coupon, could have gotten it for like $7.

    If you live in the states, you can get a roll of the wrap pretty cheap at Harbor Freight: https://www.harborfreight.com/5-in-x-1000-ft-high-performance-stretch-wrap-61519.html

    Big/Wide Head Helmet help!!

    The Bauer helmets are too narrow. He'll have to track down a Reebok/CCM 11k vn in size large.
  5. A pair of size 60 Tackla pants popped up on Sideline Swap if anyone needs them: https://sidelineswap.com/gear/hockey/pants-girdles-shells/player-pants/1086832-tackla-new-pants

    What's the deal with Tackla?

    The short ones you may be able to get from ;https://www.ebay.com/str/1776freebird?_trksid=p2047675.l2568; the big box stores don't seem to have the oddball sizes.

    Bauer custom skate ordering process?

    I paid Pure Hockey directly for my True skates...

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    There's a lot of big box and LHS that will try to shoehorn you (no pun intended) into whatever they have on hand versus special order you a skate plus people want instant gratification and want something then and there as well as not get stuck with a special order item that they can't return or can only get store credit for if it doesn't end up working for them.

    Bauer 2X / 2X Pro

    According to a video Bauer did with Ice Warehouse, 50% of people fit in Supreme, 35% in Vapor, and 15% in Nexus which is interesting when looking at your sales numbers. Seems a lot of people should be wearing different lines than they currently do.

    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.
