    Fixed that for you; sorry. I know you had PMd me about it.

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    You have to also consider the employee pool; you're dealing with people who have grown up with computers and technology; they're not going to want to learn a manual process when a semi-automated one is easier and of decent quality.

    CCM still selling V08 at retail???

    As someone who remembered all of that in real-time (and actually being at the show where that helmet was under a glass bubble) the V08 wasn't the issue. CCM bought it (cash and royalties), scrapped it, modified the shell, made V08. Hefter (who posted on MSH a few months ago about something completely unrelated) sued because he felt that the subsequent helmets (11k/Resistance/FL) were still based on the design, and wanted royalties on it.

    Has anyone tried the Quad 0.5 profile?

    Right, and I know that. But for the testing, we have been sticking to the recommendations as much as we can. We are giving you the option to skate on several profiles and rating them. What works for one of the reviewers isn't going to work with you - they are reviewing their experiences.

    Has anyone tried the Quad 0.5 profile?

    All of the skaters who are doing the testing are skating in profiles within their skate size range. Once I get the newer triples and quads from PS, it'll be even more specific. After the testing is complete, I talk to them about what would happen if they go out of the size range and what to expect. PS didn't send me the .5 because it's not a part of their testing protocol; assuming because it doesn't fit in the 0/1/2 step-up. I have a few people who have come to me saying that they've been getting triples and quads with additional pitch, which at that point is ridiculous. All of the testers have gotten it done standard.

    Jofa SG 3175 or Bauer APX2 shin guard

    I still use 3175s and have another brand new pair waiting in the wings.

    Sharpening loose steel in a Sparx

    Looking at this topic, it looks like Sparx has an option for sharpening loose steel, which is in their holder. Typically the reason why it is said that sharpening loose steel is more accurate than in a boot is because the steel isn't subject to bending from a mismounted holder, which I can't see being the case with their solution. I'm going to lock this. If Russ or Jonesy reaches out to me with input, I don't mind reopening it.

    Life changes

    Chris - Thank you for the kind words. Where we're at right now is she had a tumor that was sitting on her spine that was way too close to her spinal cord. She underwent surgery a couple of weeks ago (two days before I went to Detroit for Winterfest) and the surgery was a success...but...the doctor said her spine is full of tumors and that unfortunately it's just a matter of time, and to cherish the time we have left. She's been requiring a lot of assistance since, and I apologize to those who have had sharpenings and profiles delayed, as well as general management of the site.
  10. PL3 screws are compatible with E-Pro and SB 4.0 holders. The screws have changed, in the sense that they now have a flat spot to sit on the holder better. But they still hold the steel well.

    Interesting story about profiling/sharpening

    Met him years ago in MTL. Had a little interaction with him as he was sharpening skates for the event.

    Warrior QRE10 now using the Sabre Taper?

    It wasn’t blasted out. At this point it is still not for end user consumption. No, you didn’t see the catalogue like you had said in your original post, because the one I read in October clearly stated it was the Edge taper (which was why I asked you to look at it again.) So you’d rather post bullshit without verifying with someone at Warrior...got it.
  13. You should be using MSH anyways. #100%OfProceedsFundTheSite LOL
  14. I cringe every time I see a self-serving post by that guy. Oh, should I have used a hashtag?

    Warrior QRE10 now using the Sabre Taper?

    That wasn't the retail stick; I saw the entire line when I was at Warrior HQ a couple of months ago. Maybe look at the catalogue again?
