    Tendinitis help?

    Actually, don’t think he is. I know I had bad tendinitis with stiffer sticks. And a shorter stick may put his wrists at a different angle. KT tape is garbage. RockTape is better. And @BenBreeg’s reco for an ART-certified chiro is spot-on. Ericca runs a clinic which specializes in it.
  2. That is the aforementioned Blademaster boot gauge. Still have no idea what the size difference is between the two, but it sounds like there wasn't any reason to have two different profiled. Should've measured out from one boot then done both steels the same. And how do you not know what size skates you have? What brand?
  3. My thought is he used a Blademaster boot gauge to determine center...and that’s why the two are different. Swap the steel and see if the problem moves over to the smaller skate. He should’ve done the measurements from one boot.
  4. Quite a lot here to break down: 1) What is the size on both skates? Because "slightly shorter" can be 1/4 size, which isn't much in the grand scheme of things. I think your bigger concern here is the skates being "at least 1 size too big." 2) I can't really answer this without knowing the size of the holders. Because in almost all cases, skates with varying sizing tend to have the same size holder. And from what you said in the first line, I have to assume that the holder sizes are the same. Once you can verify that, I can give you my thoughts.

    New True Lid

    Saw the helmet; dismantled it even. When I was at Total Hockey we had a manager summit in 2015 in which all brands were present.

    New True Lid

    I'm curious to see how similar this will be to Easton's MIPS helmet (which never saw retail; was set to release but they were sold to PSG and it got mothballed.) What I'm not looking forward to is how this helmet will be perceived as safer AND fit everyone at the same time when it's never been that way.

    Best quad profile+FBV for speed?

    And you get both of those things with this project. If interested, follow the protocol and send an email.

    Bauer 2S/2S Pro Gloves

    Bauer has been more lax with retailers selling product early. Warrior as well. Assuming CCM is still hard launching.

    2018-2019 Gear Sightings

    Nike is the official uniform brand for the IIHF. The jerseys are made by SP and the pants are still Bauer.

    David Perron

    And now Stanley Cup champion.
  11. Most beer leagues are USA Hockey leagues, and it's not legal with USA Hockey. I remember installing (and then removing when referees spotted it), then reinstalling when they painted them to match their cowling. Unless something has changed since the 2000's...

    Any feedback on longer radii ( >= 11’ )?

    It is. Longer radius due to the fact that ice is wider, therefore having a smaller turning radius isn't needed as that is not how they skate over there. The Prosharp Quad Zero was marketed as a North American profile due to the fact that it's the shortest.

    Temporary Jersey Patch?

    I've used custompatches.net for the Winterfest 5-Star patches.

    Easton Makos converted pics?

    All of the Mako conversions I've done recently were all straight frames.

    Temporary Jersey Patch?

    Right - just get patches done and don't heat-seal them.

    Fix for "booting" or "bottoming" out?

    I'm curious as to what the ratio is if a store offers all three brands. Might have to place a few calls.

    Warrior Covert RS Pro?

    It's the new Covert helmet.

    Goalie Skate Profile

    Seems like it would work. 28' is pretty standard.
  22. JR Boucicaut

    Quad Zero profile

    There are limitations, yes. A Q0 becomes usable at 230mm. The zone that is profiled starts about 2-3" in from the toe and 2" in from the heel - roughly 65% of the overall runner. That's what is referred to as the working radius - you then blend the transition into the heel and toe by hand. If the radius spills out beyond that, then it's not effective. But to say that you can only use certain radii on certain sizing is not telling the whole story there.

    Quad Zero profile

    Both systems use bars. You find the center point of the steel you're putting the profile on. So when the profile is applied, both points match. A larger radius provides stability. A shorter radius provides maneuverability. You're looking for the optimal setting to you and your skating style.
  24. A source had told me a few months back they were looking to do this. Good to see all mfgrs on board. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/23/sports/hockey/for-safety-hockey-helmets-going-under-microscope.html?ref=sports&_r=0
