    Ask STEP!

    I have also wondered I have seen some blacksteel with a mirror finish. is this the case for all blacksteel and does it offer the same benefits as the Velocity steel with the hard edge of black steel?

    Ask STEP!

    Will step be ceasing production on Lightspeed 2 holders anytime soon?
  3. 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?

      Yes, 280 is 280.

  4. I was wondering if anybody had any experience with these pants. I saw them in a store and they seem bullet proof but a bit heavy. I was wondering how hey fit compared to Aero pants. How are they for flexibility and how is the weight and protection. Thanks in advance
  5. Hi there

    i am looking into my first custom skates 

    i have noticed your reviews on the true and your experience with the ccm skates. I am thinking about getting true or ccm skates  and wondering if you could offer some input. 

    I have noticed the weight difference in the true compared to the as1. Did you find a noticeable difference on the ice or was it one of those things where when your on the ice no difference was noticed. 

    I also noticed you replaced the holder did that offer any weight reductions?

    you had also made mention ccm did not want to send without holders, did you manage to order them without and was it a fight?

    performance wish did you lean to one skate more than the other?

    thanks for your input

      If you go full custom with the AS1 and use any aftermarket steel, like Step or Tydan, the weight is very similar but the TRUE skates will still likely weight slightly more. On the ice, I did not notice the weight difference. Replacing the VH/TRUE holder with a TUUK LS Edge with Tydan steel actually weighed more than the VH/TRUE holder with the Step steel. With CCM, I was able to get them ordered without the holder mounted but CCM did not want to do it and it was quite the fight to get it done. Performance wise, I think TRUE skates outperform CCM and the durability of the skates is noticeable compared to CCM and Bauer. My TRUE skates still look like new.

      Thanks for the input

    VH Footwear/TRUE by Scott Van Horne

    I was wondering on the real differences in a mono frame boot vs the traditional two piece boots. I understand that fit is the most important factor but was curious to the added benefit if anything I.e . Sharper turning faster acceleration. It seems some people say the skate reacts faster to the movement of their feet. Thanks

    Sorry if this has been touched upon but I could not find anything within the thread. Can anyone offer input into the performance difference between the two piece and the one piece. Is it something that noticeable I am thinking about getting a pair of true skates.

    Base Hockey curve request

    That is the one thing I have found with the Kovalev pattern is I have to relearn saucer passes with it

    Base Hockey curve request

    I find the supernatural has the one flex point and the True has a multi flex mostly focused in the middle but does flex down depending on hand position

    Base Hockey curve request

    I have the supernatural and A5.2 and I find the True is more of mid low while super is more of a mid kick
  11. Sid

    Low kick, soft blade?

    What I was told from base "It is the exact same shape as a Nasty R. The difference is that it is lighter in weight and the construction has been built to limit torque down low on the stick so that it is less prone to opening up. I use the LT and it is ultra lightweight with amazing pop and plays very smooth."
  12. Hi I was wondering if anybody had any experience with these socks? I have seen a lot of athletes use them and wondered how well the hockey socks work. I am currently using swift wick socks thanks

    If there are spots available I would be interested. I would not need accomodiation
  14. I thought I saw a recent post about Fischer gloves but could not find it. Does anybody have any feedback on these gloves. They seem to made of a high quality. thanks
  15. Due to the wife complaining about the sweet smell of Hockey I am looking into more options of cutting down the smell. One of the is looking into gloves with a anti-microbial liner. Do these actually help or is it just hype. My eagle gloves don't have it.
