  1. Hi guys. Sorry for long winded question here but looking for some advice from anyone who has experience with both ProSharp and Cag One profiles. I skate nearly everyday and have used 9/10’ for roughly 5 years on a 272 tuuk. I live close to the ProSharp office so I started playing around with different profiles this summer out of curiosity. I originally tried the Zuperior S, but felt a little long in the heel. I then tried a Quad 0 for a skate, and it felt closer. I had a skate issue (Listed in “Is this holder mounted properly” ), but my trainer thought it was more of a steel issue that was causing concern (steel was in fact bent). After looking at Quad 0 on my blade, I was told there was hardly any blade on the ice and it was actually balanced behind center. He is a Cag One guy, and said he could fix my edge balance concerns with a new profile - gave me a 35/65 on the Cag. He explained I would feel like I was on rails a bit but would improve stability and I’d adapt. I’ve used it for 6-7 skates now and it feels way too long still unfortunately. I went back to some old 9/10’ steel I had kicking around today and it felt like I had nothing there on my blades now. Wasn’t sure if it was because it was old and worn/sharpened steel or if it was because I was missing the longer contact area My question or need for advice would be - do I go back to a 9/10’ if I didn’t have any issues prior. Do I go down in CagOne to say 30/50? Do I try the Quad 0 again as I’ve been told the holder is mounted correctly. Open to any suggestions - I’m not too proficient in the science of it all, and don’t know how much flat spot I’d be losing with the 9/10 or Quad 0. I obviously liked the straight ahead aspect of the 35/65 but felt like my agility was squashed. Thanks for your time/help in advance gang.

    Is this holder mounted properly?

    Skate unfortunately was made for me with my normal specs and no mention of pro/supination. https://imgur.com/gallery/A8bVEKG

    Is this holder mounted properly?

    Figured this thread was recent enough to ask a holder alignment question on here. I have a pair of pro stock Bauer’s in question. Felt like sharpenings were off (steel was also bent), but have now noticed after never feeling right in Left skate, that holder seems to be misaligned. Is it just me? If not, is this correctable or would the holes be too tight to remount etc. Blade/Holder photos
  4. @althoma1is the Covert QRE actually noticeably lighter than the Dynasty?

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Thanks for the feedback - wasn’t aware of the prosharp project but have done some reading, thanks for the advice. Do you recall what you did profile wise to adjust? Thanks

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Hi guys. I’m on my skates (custom Vapors) every day and tried to get into VH and then True on two separate occasions. Both times I felt like I was too far forward on my toes when pivoting as a defenseman. I loved the fit and the response of the skate. Ive spoken to a veteran member on here about profiling and flattening the steel (currently at 9.5/10.5). I’ve also heard of lifts being used in the front. Has anyone else struggled to transition? Was it the profile of the steel or was it the cut of the boot that angled you for forward flexion? Any recommendations or insights are appreciated. Thanks!

    Anyone know anything about CCM’s new Jetspeed/FT1. Appears Boeser wearing it in DaBeauty League on instagram. Looks sort of like the 70k but with red accents. https://imgur.com/a/XyV9IGJ can delete post if it’s not allowed yet.

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    Out of curiosity - does anyone know the basic concept of the scan. I know it will clearly display any bumps or foot/ankle abnormalities, but does it also generate a size and measurements? A la, the old tracing recommendations from the old fittings. I wasn’t sure if they use the scanner to then select the last size or if they come up with the sizing based off previous skate size/shoe size etc. thanks in advance!

    Bauer Total One vs. HP girdle

    Awesome, appreciate everyone's feedback

    Bauer Total One vs. HP girdle

    Bauer HP girdle
  11. Hey guys - I tried to search this topic but didn't come across an answer. Is there a difference between the two girdles as far as weight/protection/quality go? looking to replace my TotalOne and it seems Bauer has done away with a true girdle and there are still some of these around. Not sure if it's a lower price point item or a SMU for stores so looking for some input. Thnks!
  12. Did a brief search and may have missed it, but... Will Warrior be offering a girdle in the Alpha line?

    CCM Super Tacks Skate Initial Thoughts

    How is everyone finding the stiffness? Know I was nervous of a one piece composite boot but can anyone compare stiffness to a Bauer? Thanks !

    New Warrior Dynasty Girdle

    Hey guys coming from a 9k and was wondering on sizing. I wear a medium in that, am 5'11 and 185. The mediums in store felt a little tight in the dynasty. Do they stretch out over time at all for someone who has worn them for a little while now? Loosen in the legs etc? Thanks guys!

    Have been trying to find out who has been making these for a while. I think Stoll and a few others are wearing the all black ones. Not sure if Zuccarrello (sp?) is wearing the same company's but his seem to be a similar fit but with a silver design on them...
