    NICC Hockey - Speedmaster

    The add in USA Hockey offers a discount and says the “special” price is $189 for a senior twig. Perhaps the $300 is the MSRP which they will quickly abandon so you think it’s a great deal. i mirror others sentiments; it is a fugly stick. anyone watch the videos? Their add says it reduces blade twist but in their own slow-mo that blade is torquing and vibrating all over the place.

    NICC Hockey - Speedmaster

    Saw this in this month’s USA Hockey magazine http://nicchockey.com/product_details.php?pid=2&catid=3 (Note; no information on the curve patterns) Makes some bold claims; anyone have any feedback? Quoting:”Patented technology, resists blade twist, increases shot speed, spin, control and feel. Reduces drag forces, receives the puck with dead stop action. Lifts puck onto blade upon impact, the competition twist down. Exclusive carbon fiber layup and mold.” http://nicchockey.com/hockey_sticky_performance.php?a=2

    Warrior Alpha AK27 SL

    It has a mid-low kick; great for slappers. I have enjoyed mind quite a bit. Light, not harsh vibrations.

    K1 Sportswear Jerseys

    We were trying to get some K1 sweaters, too, but they changed their policy and require a 12 piece minimum (per color). good luck!

    Changing from p88 to p38 (Datsyuk) curve

    Bigger curve, but more open face. When I did it the biggest adjustments I had to make was on the back hand (harder to get under it for air due to the larger curve) and snapshots (bit higher due to the open face and bit further off to the strong side due to the bigger curve). Benefits were was a little easier to catch passes and stick handle (again, because of the bigger curve). Shouldn’t take that long to adjust.

    No-Name Hockey Sticks

    For what it's worth, those that want to give it a try can use discount code TWENTY for 20% off. Shipping is outrageous at $39, but it;s still tempting to try because of the nice assortment of flexes. If anyone has actually used one, would love to hear feedback on the balance, performance, durability, etc

    What equipment do you use?

    Thoughts on the Cypress? Sorta sounds like the old TPS hybrid blade (but lighter) http://www.verbero.com/collections/sticks/products/cypress-senior-1

    New hockey sitcom on IFC called BENDERS

    I think the goal of Benders, episode 1, was to be so bad that episode 2 (decent, but not epic) seem so much better simply in comparison. #2 was a much better showing.

    Sher-Wood EK15 Lineup

    Hockey Supremacy appears to have the Smith PP01 in stock, but near as I can tell, doesn't ship to the US. Anyone found a place that has the EK15, PP01, in a RH 95 flex (grip preferred) that ships within the US?

    Happy 10th Anniversary, MSH!

    Ah.... I remember the early days (daze?) so well. Thanks to MSH I have been sending my paycheck to hockey stores everywhere. It's like the support club I never knew I needed "sure, Ogie, it's perfectly normally to have more than 12 back up sticks! So what that your skates are only 3 months old, you should get another pair"... I remember the day when Drew the Hunz had only 1 pair of gloves or when fat wabbit had only 1 set of gear. Thank you MSH. I would lift my glass in honor of this day but I sold all of my non-essentials like that so I could get the latest rocket runner that folks were talking about here.

    What's the puck feel like; pingy?

    2013-2014 Sticks

    You can ignore my last question; I found the EK15 thread and now understand that " they only released the PP26 Stastny and PP88 Ryan II for the launch. The rest of the patterns will be available in January."
