    STX to produce hockey equipment in 2014

    STX was having a photo shoot today at my local rink with someone from the woman's olympic team. I saw the prototype stick sitting out. Looked pretty nice. Didn't get a chance to hold it.

    Pro's choice mask

    Pro's Choice is a smaller company in Massachusetts that makes custom masks. Their clients include a few past and present NHL goalies. http://progoaliemask.com/ The owner, Dom Malerba, is outstanding to deal with and has top notch customer service. My background: I'm a D guy that switched to playing goal almost two years ago. This is my second mask. My previous mask was a Fusion 9961, which is a great lid for the money. Fit My mask was made from a mold of my ugly dome, so the fit is incredible. It fit more snug than my old mask. It was a little odd at first, but I'd have a hard time going back. I sent my mask back to Dom after having it a few months to get the quick snap straps sewn on the back plate rather than snapped. I did this because the burned ends of the nylon were digging into my neck a little. Dom told me he prefers to sew those those straps anyway. When a put on my old mask after wearing the PC for a bit it felt terrible and sloppy. 10/10 Protection The reason I paid the hefty price tag for this mask. On their website they have a video section of pros taking bombs off of these things. I don't face shots nearly as hard and most likely never will. I feel confident against what ever may be thrown my way. The only issue I ever had was some prolonged ear ringing from a shot that hit me right over the ear hole. It was shot from someone at an open skate I wasn't facing.... hardly the masks fault there. I also opted for a 4" chin length as I don't wear a dangler and the tri-cat cage. 10/10 Weight It's definitely not the lightest mask out there. Due to how well it fits, I've never had an issue with the weight or even noticed it. 8/10 Durability I've heard Rask has been using the same one for a long time. I've had mine less than a year but it's just as good as the day I got it. I expect this to be the last mask I ever have to buy. 10/10 Intangibles As it is a custom mask, there is the wait time that is always hard with custom gear. I also had to get help from the Misses to make a mold of my head to send in. The process was a little intimidating at first, but was fairly simple. Dom has recently had to raise his cost as his material cost has gone up over the years. It's a pretty pricey lid. Conclusion This is a top notch mask. Not much else I can say. I feel confident against anything that would come my way on the ice. It will always be my first choice when it comes time to play. 10/10 Construction Paint Done

    White Tape vs Black Tape

    I use white on my goalie stick. I like to be able to see the puck marks and know I'm directing shots properly off the heel. I do use team colors on my grip areas, because you can never be too matchy matchy.

    I think I pretty much fixed the askew foam with a heat gun and some pressure. Looking forward to trying them out asap.

    Got mine yesterday. Heat molded them this morning. They fit amazing. I think I messed up the foam a little on one of the heel locks. Perhaps I should've used a shoe horn. :/ I'll have to see what Scott says about correcting it.

    So sick of breaking sticks..... Advice?

    I've had a lot of luck with Total ones and One95s. As others have said, a two piece might work well for you if blades are you problem.
