    Skate punching out for width

    Maybe try loosening the laces over the forefoot then tighten tighter going up the ankle. I notice if I tighten mine to tight, they do hurt, when I have the laces just looser and tighter up the ankle, they're like slippers.

    Best “non-compression” skating socks

    I just use dress socks tbh.

    Quad Zero profile

    Fuck me here in the UK you goto the shop and they still ask if you're on a half inch hollow. Not me though 7/16ths I'd like to try some of these profiles, but we simply don't have the facilities to do it. I'd assume all our players in the current IIHF Championships are on traditional hollows.

    Strong pain in my feet

    I'm in Nexus N9000 and they have so much more room than my older skates. Your best bet, like what I did was goto a local established shop and get measured, then find what boots fit in that size range. The guy measured my feet and instantly said Nexus range.

    Get what you pair, buy a good fitting pair first time round, you won't have to spend on another pair for a while!

    I had the same thing in a pair of old Grafs, I got fitted properly (aswell as we can in the UK) and I was put into a pair of Nexus EE, so much better. I'd say a volume issue.

    Which Goal For Pucks?

    I used to use a brick wall and put masking tape up in the shape of a goal.

    Komarov with his old Grafs aswell. Stupidly bought a pair because of him too.

    You always get more satisfaction from DIY projects

    Unknown jaw protector / combo shield

    Get a normal cage, cut the top half off, Dremell it smooth. Then for the mounting to the rear, if you were going cheap you could get a wire coat hanger bend it round, cut to length, a couple of welds and you have the loop. To me it looks like it just hooks onto the inside of the helmet where the visor is mounted.

    Tbf, it probably wouldn't be to hard to make yourself. I quite like it. I like the air flow you get from a cage, but the visibility from a bubble is a lot better.
  12. I'd say they were a 75 flex, due to the 75 on that label.

    When Did You Get Bored With Acquiring New Hockey Gear?

    I'm happy with my gear, however I'd love a plethora of sticks and a bag of pucks and test out the said sticks.

    Choosing best cage color for visibility

    I think a puck to the teeth would improve some of our team! I remember our keeper took a slapper to the neck, he was struggling to breathe for a good 15 minutes, probably had a fag after 20! The next session back he had the plastic neck guard on, first slapper, same guy, snapped the thing in half! Back to the fishbowl, I use a small drizzle of washing up liquid, rub it in, inside and out, then any excess is taken off with a cloth. We're quite lucky with the rink atmospherics.
