    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.

    Strong pain in my feet

    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.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    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.
  7. Hi all, I'm going be heading to Vegas in a few days and was wondering which sports book(s) you all have found to be the most hockey-friendly. I've heard some now have hockey on the larger screens due to the Golden Knights. Where should I go to put some skin on the Edmonton-Vegas game?

    CCM RBZ Skate

    I did end up going with True. I may try the CCM customs next time I need a new pair just to see what they can do for me. But if you have weird feet where no line by either Bauer or CCM fits your profile, you don't have to worry about be shoehorned, no pun intended, into a skate family that may have aspects that aren't ideal for you.

    CCM RBZ Skate

    Nexus are for high arched feet. I have wide, flat feet like the OP and had to go customs after trying to skate in Nexus. He may be able to replicate the features on that skate to some degree with getting a custom one-piece CCM skate.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Yes, you're supposed to use a shoe horn to put them on and take them off. They're a breeze to put on and take off once you start using a shoe horn; I keep a $2 IKEA shoe horn in my bag for this very reason.

    Ccm jetspeed ft1 or new ones?

    I got this in my email recently: https://www.icewarehouse.com/lc/brands/ccm-onepiece-benefit-insight.html?fbclid=IwAR3O0ifhOuE_r1oISR6xd8tQBWpw9Ey1NSLkcLDaDhver-FmNMjBmnOHRKc

    The Athletic -- Worth it?

    I forget that I have it then I'll binge read a bunch of articles on it, especially non-topical ones when I have a slow day at work and then forget about it again for a while.

    Ask STEP!

    I seem to remember seeing some on their site which is why I asked as I hadn't seen them on any other American sites. Perhaps Chase loaded his suitcase up with a bunch when he was in Quebec...

    Ask STEP!

    Is it safe to assume that you will be releasing steel (if haven't done so already) for the new CCM XS holder?

    Ask STEP!

    Can we now get Step Steel for LS Edge holders in the US?
