    ProSharp Quad Profile Recommendation?

    This is a question that takes trial and error to answer. Check out the ProSharp Project right here on MSH and if you put in the time I am sure you will find what works best for you. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/forum/191-the-prosharp-project/

    The Things Customers Do

    I had bought 1X skates once. The kid selling doesn't bake them per the instructions - which I had to show him. Then he says as they are coming out of the oven... "after you put them on walk around a bit... that's what the pros do." Me: Nah

    Yes... too much pressure

    Quad 1 - dkmiller3356

    Update.... I have now played 3 games on the Quad 1. The first game I had increased stability up front and more confidence going into high traffic player where contact would occur. Game two also felty good but I think I used a bit too much stone. I was grabbing a bit and turning was compromised. Last game was the charm. Lighter stone and maybe some of that new edge is wearing off too. Turns and crossovers were great and stability too. Very pleased. At some point I will pop in a Quad0 to compare it too.

    Bought a long sleeve tee shirt.... yeah!! Hope it's fire retardant.

    What would you like to see on MSH?

    I wonder if each manufacturer could have their own channel where people could interact in a forum with them and they could post their latest offerings. Maybe even video breakdowns of products.
  8. if you want more flexible protection you might consider cutting out hex pads from a padded shirt or other pads and attaching it.
  9. Triple Radius - 9'/50mm/10.5' Steel:STEP 272 Hollow:100/50 FBV About Me: I have been playing 17 years since the age of 34. As a player that came to the game later in life I struggle with edgework, high speed stability and tight turns. I am typically strong on my skates in battles in front. I have been looking to move towards shallower hollows to increase glide while still maintaining a confident edge and increasing stability. About a year ago I moved from a 9’ rocker LS2 to STEP Quad 0. I felt that the Quad 0 was pretty revolutionary for me and enabled me to go from playing on a 100/50 (3/8 equivalent) to a 100/50 (1/2” equivalent). I found I had more steel on the ice, especially under my heel and that my turns, push off and stability were better. While more stable than my 9’ rocker, however, I still felt I had room for improvement. That is what led to my participation in the Pro Sharp project. Review: I came off the ice having just tried and been pretty comfortable with the Quad 1. While I had a fairly decent idea what the Quad 1 would feel like, I had no clue what glide would feel like. I took a first step on the ice and immediately was confronted with a radically different feel from either of the quads. I think the best way for me to describe it is “water skis!” This profile felt radically long… so much so that I felt incredible bite and depth in the ice. It was very uncomfortable, but I was committed to following the protocol, so I stuck through it. The first few laps were spent just working on pushing off and then progressed to crossovers. The increased bite had an opposite impact on my stability and instead of making me more stable it made me less so. My balance was compromised and transitions from front to back were nearly impossible and gave me quite a fright. Needless to say I couldn’thave been happier when my 15 minutes was up!! Mobility:1 Stability: 2 Speed: 2 Acceleration: 2 Other profiles on deck: Having tried this, the quad 1 and quad 0 I will try the quad 1 in a game and also get a freshly profiled quad 0 to compare it to.

    Quad 1 - dkmiller3356

    Quad 1 - 6’-9’-12’-15’. Steel:STEP 272 Hollow:100/50 FBV About Me: I have been playing 17 years since the age of 34. As a player that came to the game later in life I struggle with edgework, high speed stability and tight turns. I am typically strong on my skates in battles in front. I have been looking to move towards shallower hollows to increase glide while still maintaining a confident edge and increasing stability.

While more stable than my 9’ rocker, however, I still felt I had room for improvement. That is what led to my participation in the Pro Sharp project. Review: The Quad 1 was the first set of steel I chose to demo because I wanted to see the difference between the 0 and the 1. My first impression on my first strides was that it certainly felt longer in the toe and somewhat more in the back. The truth is that this is not the case…. The rear of the Quad 1 is longer and the front is the same. Nevertheless, that is how it felt to me. My first few laps were a bit choppy as I got used to the longer radius but I quickly got comfortable. Push offs were solid and crossovers had more stability than the quad 0. Transitions were smooth, feeling, feeling more or less identical to the quad 0. After my 15 minutes I felt that this was steel worth trying furtherin game play and might be worth spending more time with. Mobility:3.5 Stability: 4 Speed: 3.5 Acceleration: 4 Other profiles on deck: The next set up in my trial program is a “glide” radius - 9'/50mm/10.5'

    Is skate profiling "old technology"?

    Matt, I think the answer to your question lies in the Pro Sharp profile project that JR is doing. There are so many more profiles available that can enhance people's skating now that people are dialing in and getting optimal performance. Of course you can always try to replicate your old 9 foot rocker but you can also step outside the box and try some new stuff. It's really your call. But in short, yes... I think int time you will find that a typical 9 foot rocker is obsolete.

    Hockey Feels Like A Chore

    It's all about the guys in the locker room. Win or lose the guys on my team have become my best friends and I look forward to seeing them.

    Super tacks 2.0 vs as1

    I have both sticks. In terms of flex point I know that are different but not in any huge way. I am comfortable with both. The 2.0 ha hgrewat puck feel. Its the same blade but I I felt like the puck comes off the 2.0 blade a bit quicker. That might be related to the flex profile... not sure. Truth is both feel nice.
