    Lightspeed Edge Holder Mounting

    Yes - the back of the skate, from tendon guard to runner, then from heel of boot to middle of holder.

    Lightspeed Edge Holder Mounting

    It's hard to tell from that picture. The left boot looks to be mounted slightly inward than the right, but then again, from that angle, I can't tell about the rest of the alignment. There are tools that you can determine alignment with. Maximum Edge has one. The gap in the heel isn't a huge problem, but usually something you don't see from a stock mount. Question...what size are they? I remember we had to send back a bunch of skates from that line (mainly MX3s) in big sizes due to the shoddy mounts they came with. I believe it was 288 and 296. However, if you're basing this just on the inability of putting Step in, that's usually the case with Step Black. You have to snap it in there to make sure it goes in sometimes.
  5. Hi JR

    i know this may be a dumb question but if I wanted to swap out 280 Graf holders with tuuk ls2 the Tuuks would need to be 280 as well correct?

    Perfect. So what you want to do is set some steel on there, clamp it, then carve a notch on top of the bolt. (I always have mine at 6 o'clock) So now, all you have to do is unclamp and slide the boot or steel out. You won't have to mess with that bolt at that point. Now if you have to do some goal skates, turn the bolt clockwise to accommodate the 4mm steel - chances are the notch will be either at 9 o'clock or 12 o'clock - then you'll be able to clamp. Adjust your holder, then reset it all when you're done.

    Warrior new on ice equipment supplier to ECHL

    Protective doesn't fall under this. It's always been about the product you can see. When all of this started, CCM's aim was to get players into their product at the CHL level, so that way as they moved on to minor league hockey, they would still use it, then once in the NHL, they would stick with it. There was no way that a player was going to be forced to use a brand they didn't want to if they were on a one-way.

    No. The DX has a black Warrior logo on a black matte stick (that's a discussion for another day) so you can see the WARR if you look hard enough.

    Warrior new on ice equipment supplier to ECHL

    It's very interesting how Warrior got into a position to do this. A few years back, there were a lot of people in the industry who wondered how they were still around. But they've put out a lot of good product, have good relationships with the major dealers (until a couple of years ago, one of them would barely touch them), strong at pro, and have the best social media in the industry.

    Two things need to happen - You have to adjust your yoke bolt to give it clearance for the 4mm steel. What I do on my holder is put a spring between the bolt and the yoke, then determine the height for regular steel. Once that's done I put a notch on the top of the bolt, so that I know where to turn it to after I do goal steel. The other benefit to this is that the spring will keep the bolt in the same place every time, so I never have to tighten it - just put the skate on and put the clamp on and pull. From there, it should be about 6-8 clockwise clicks to drop the holder. Wheel is the same. Pressure is the same, but you'll need more passes to cover the thickness, and you must be very careful around the heel and toes.

    Judging by some of the other posts you've made in this category, I can tell you don't know how this business works. And that's okay. Brands sample players (as in, they make samples of sticks in hopes of the player trying it out and liking it) all the time. As you can see, the Alpha DX has his name on it, so it is to his specifications. What happens from here is that the brand who has the player under contract will then work to fix whatever issue the endorsee has with the product. Or it can be a situation in which he is unhappy with the service the brand/brand rep is providing. Once you have players trying different brands *in-game* it's usually downhill from there. But no, it's not like there's a lawyer waiting for him in the locker room after the game serving him with papers.

    Tuuk replacement blades

    Yes, the only difference between the Lightspeed and LS2 holders were the bolt that held the steel to the holder.

    ProSharp Profile Template List

    1) This program is for you to try several profiles and through testing, determine what works best for you. I've stated several times that too many people try to self-diagnose or have a shop try to nail the recommendation on the first try. That's not what this is about. 2) The template recommendations are strictly that; recommendations. There is definitely deviation there. While there are more options now, that further refine the range, you can definitely go over or short on them. I'll provide an answer to your email in a little bit. Could've sworn I had responded. Sorry.

    No, it’s a template. It grinds until it achieves the shape the guide roller follows.
