  1. Hey all. New to this place...hope I'm doing this correctly! Okay, background...playing for 45 years...college...adult leagues elite-level, coaching...the works. All of that led to my hips degenerating and the loss of...well...everything (other than 24/7 pain). One miracle later...two new hips as of last June, and I can do everything again...including returning to the game I love! It's unreal...I wake up every and I'm thankful. Onward...enough sappy stuff. I have been away for 10 years, and the technology is now another universe to me. Yesterday, I went to the only place in the region that has pro-level gear. The Bauer computer says I'm in a Vapor, the S2Pro felt much better out of the box. The CCM computer says Jetspeed, but the SuperTacks AS1 felt better out of the box. They also said that the Ribcor would be closest in feel to my last skates...Supreme 5000's (yeah...that long ago). Here's my question...Should those Vapor and Jetspeeds feel uncomfortably snug in the instep and forefoot UNTIL they are baked, at which time they will feel good. Conversely, will those Supremes and AS1's that feel good be too loose after baking? Thanks for bearing with the long post and my newly acquired ignorance! Oh and...glad I went in to try them on, I measured my feet and followed all online recommendations...they put me in 8.5's. Well...in a "pro fit" w/o socks (my style), I'm actually a 7 left, and 8 right. Will go with 7.5's unless I find my mirror image out there who wants to swap one skate!
  2. Does anyone know how the CCM Tacks 310 helmet fits? I have a rather round to wide head, and I struggle with finding a helmet that fits me well. The Warrior Krown PX3 and CCM FitLite 3DS both came close, but they still pinch a bit at the temples. I've read that the Tacks helmets are good for a wide head, but can anyone confirm this?
  3. I'm hearing the pro stock Warrior Covert QRL pants might run larger, but I'm also hearing they actually might fit smaller than the retail. At 5'9" 155-160lbs... 32" waist 30" inseam. Anyone have any recent experience with this pro stock model? Opinion on whether I ought to go medium, or small, or small +1, perhaps, in these pants? Cheers.
  4. So I've had Graf Supra G535s for two months now, I've baked them twice, I've had them punched, I've gotten Superfeet footbeds, and I've switched the holders to TUUK LS2s. Yet, despite all these measures, I still get pain on the sides/bottom of my feet when I skate. The best way I can describe it is that it's a dull, fatiguing pain. The pain is most intense when I take off my skates, but then it goes away pretty quickly after. My best guess is that my skates are too narrow for me. They're size 7.5 regular, and they fit very snug lengthwise, but not too snug. My right foot is slightly longer than my left foot, and it slightly touches the toecap when sitting. I always feel like my heels are too far forward in the skate, like they aren't snug in the heel pockets, but they don't move around when skating. Based on this info, would you say that my skates might indeed be too narrow, or could this be another issue? Can you recommend a different pair of skates from what I've told you? I'm partial to Bauer because I like TUUK holders, but I'm open to trying something else. Thanks for reading this block of text!
  5. It's been a longgggg time since I've posted on here, but hopefully someone can help me out! So I have a pair of CCM U+ Pro Reloaded skates, but both the boot and steel are one their last leg. I live in a city, but we only have 1 hockey shop, and I'm not thrilled with the knowledge there. I work for an ECHL team, and our equipment manager was telling me he isn't sure what's the closest to the CCM U+ Pro skates so I thought this would be the best place to ask! I'm not fully loyal to CCM, and I will try any skate that has a similar fit to the U+ Pro Reloaded. Thanks in advance for any and all help!
  6. Hello. I have a used pare of ccm u+ 12 skates, size 10,5 E. They have been used for 5 months and baked/ molded once. When I sit and put them on it feels tight but good, when I stand it is ok also. But after 5 minutes of skating outside of my feet starts to hurt. Then I loose the laces and it helps but the skates start to wobble so you cant skate like that. I realize that my feet get flattened when skating other then sitting or just standing. I have 29,7 cm length, 11 cm width, low/ flat feet, low- middle instep. I have NOT baked them for my feet. Will baking eliminate the problem in the area or not? Do I have to stand in them during the baking process? Or may be these skates are not just for me?

    CCM 4052 Hockey Pant Fit

    I need some help and/or recommendations on which size of CCM 4052 Hockey Pants I should get for a person who is about 6'2, close to 200 lbs, and has a 38" waist . This is going to be a gift and he is unable to try on the pants, so he said he would exchange them if need be. I would like to avoid him having to do that as much as possible. I know this question is somewhat impossible to answer, but I would like to see if anyone has experience with these pants and the fit of them. Based on the size chart at Total Hockey, it looks like he could either be a Large or XL. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Flexlites vs nexus

    I have a pair of flexlite 4.0's that I'm looking to replace. Did the nexus models replace the flexlites? Would it be safe to assume they would have a similar fit? I'm looking specifically at the Nexus 600 LE that I saw on Pure Hockey http://www.purehockey.com/bauer-nexus-600-le-senior-hockey-skates-22498 I could jump up to the 800 if the cost vs benefit was justifiable http://www.hockeymonkey.com/bauer-hockey-skates-nexus-800-sr.html or would it make sense to go to the 6000 at this point? http://www.hockeymonkey.com/bauer-hockey-skate-nexus-6000-sr.html Thank you

    M or L elbows for me?

    No LHS nearby, can only shop from online. In the pictures is me wearing my teammate's RBZ 110 Medium elbow pad and my 13.5 ax1 glove liked 110 elbow pads really a lot and want buy a pair myself, but I am afraid that if i go with Medium there might be too much gap in between the gloves and the elbow pads. by the way, I play in a recreational non-contact adult league but I do sometimes get hit by flying pucks in my arms Thanks a lot!:)
  10. Does anybody know of a low priced helmet that fits similar to a re akt? I have to sell my white re akt to get a black one to match a team and in the mean time I'm going to try and find a helmet to bridge that gap. Does anybody know of a helmet that has a similar fit?

    Ezeefit Ankle Booties

    I was getting some irritation from a pair of skates where the liner had rolled a bit and the tendon guard assembly was digging into the back of my heel slightly. The skates, over time, were starting to become a bit looser in the heel. I decided to pick up a pair of Ezeefit booties in the thinnest design to give them a try. Here's a pic what they look like: Background: 30 years old / 5’11 / 215lbs / left-handed Men's div B/C and shinny hockey (former minor league rep team player) On ice ~5 hours a week Fit I fit into a pair of M-L or L depending on the cut. I have a 7.5 skate size and anywhere between a 9.5-10.5 shoe size. I have a very high arch and the booties are stretchy enough to fit over this added volume. The booties do stretch a bit over time, but I find they shrink back when you toss them in the washer and then the dryer (which is not recommended by the manufacturer). The booties come in 3 different thicknesses at time of writing. You can customize how much protection or how much volume you're looking to add. 9/10 Protection These protect insanely well against abrasion, rubbing and pressure. If there's something awry in your skate, these might be enough to protect your foot a bit. They provide some protection against shots as they are slighly padded through their design. The thicker models would likely offer more protection. I'm not going to bill them as offering protection against shots, but they do add a layer of padding. For the purpose of their design they protect your foot from irritation and injury. The back seam of the bootie MAY irritate the back of your heel a bit. I noticed it at first, but I think I've gotten used to it and the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. 8.5/10 Weight There's nothing to them. Lightweight and fold up to the size of a small pair of socks in your bag. 10/10 Durability The logos have both worn off from washing, and the red interior has bled a bit onto my hockey skate socks, but they've held up design-wise. No problems with stitching, and I've been using them for upwards of 9 months, rotating two pairs. They do stretch out over use, but they shrink back after a wash and dry. 10/10 Intangibles These also work really well in Cowboy boots or in footwear that just isn't confortable on the heel or ankle. I haven't found any footwear in which they don't work to some degree. Your foot does get warmer, and I recommend that you wear the bootie UNDER your sock to prevent slipping. You can wear it above as well, but it holds in place better under the sock. I find that due to my insanely narrow ankle and heel (custom AA is still even a bit loose for me) these booties help by providing a bit more volume, yet are much more comfortable and adaptable than Stable 26. They also offer full foot booties (like a sock) and toe-box booties (for the toes only) - maybe this would help others who have issues with this area of their skate or footwear. 10/10 Conclusion I love these ankle booties for reducing pressure to the tendon at the top of my ankle and for adding a bit of bulk to my very narrow ankle and heel. They're very protective (when it comes to friction and abrasion) and they are extremely durable. They're washable and they are very economical when compared to something like Stable26 or using pro-wrap for a similar purpose. 47.5/50 - 95/100 = 95%
  12. Hello. I've lurked for a long time but now I am looking for some opinions. I used to play hockey and I sold professional level figure and roller skates, as well as, hockey skates and rollerblades for 4 years. So, I know how to fit skates. My problem is that one of my sons have hard to fit feet. He has a narrow heel and forefoot but a HIGH arch. He also pronates...TERRIBLY. He has finally been fitted for custom orthotics that he wears in his shoes and is going Tuesday to get a pair specifically for his hockey skates. I want to get him into a pair of Grafs but he is still in a youth skate. Size 12.5 I am looking at the G1035, G5035 and G35S. Other than that, I don't see that many Grafs that MIGHT work in his size. Is there any other options (even non-Graf ones) that I am missing? He plays about 5 times a week (practice and games) and plays almost year round. (He's VERY into it.) He is also pretty small...only 60lbs. He is currently in an Easton Stealth S1. It was an emergency buy at the end of last season when his old skates were too small. They fit him lengthwise but the boot is too soft. I've moved the blades, tried heel lifts, wedges in the boots, Superfeet, different lace techniques...you name it, I've tried it. I am hoping that the combination of the RIGHT skate and the new orthotics finally solves his horrific pronation issue. Here is the BIGGEST obstacle...we live in an area where the only DECENT skates shop is over 3 hours away and I won't be going back home to Quebec for quite awhile, so I need to buy online. I know I'll be going to Detroit in November, but he can't wait that long either. So, please, FIRE AWAY with ideas! Thanks!

    Helmet Fit Help

    I have a CCM V08 combo and a Bauer IMS 9.0 combo, both in large. Both were ordered online as the proshop at the rink I go to hasn't had any helmets that were in the right size the last few times I've gone in- they cater almost entirely to children when it comes to helmets it seems. There are no other retail stores in my area so I'm stuck with guesswork. Both helmets have fit issues and I'm trying to figure out what I should do as I still have time to return/exchange either of them. The V08 fits well ear to ear but I've got a finger sized amount of space at my forehead with the helmet on the smallest setting. The cage needed to be spread a little because it was causing headaches it was so tight at my temples. Now that the cage fits better it's comfortable but the gap in length worries me. Also the chin cup is pretty weird on the cage- I think the cage may be a bit too big. Would dropping down to a medium make the helmet too snug width wise if it fits very close in a large? The IMS 9.0 fits front to back but leaves quite a bit of wiggle side to side. I can wear my glasses with this but that doesn't even help hold the helmet in place. The cage size is perfect. Would dropping this one down to a medium help the width issue I'm having? I actually ordered a medium but the company messed up so this would be an easy exchange. Would either one of them be acceptable in their current state and I'm just overthinking the issue? I know there's going to be a little bit of movement- I just want it to be as good a fit as I can get...preferably without spending the price of a helmet in return shipping to figure it out. Both helmets passed the head shake test for small movements but the IMS 9.0 moved a lot side to side when I applied any decent amount of pressure. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm not looking to be brand specific either so if you have another idea let me know. I haven't played in over 10 years and this is the last piece of equipment I need- I was really hoping to make it out Monday night for p/u and a skills clinic but I don't want to put myself at risk. I've had concussions in the past and I know a properly fitting helmet is the best defense in making sure I don't have another one.
  14. My beer league is forcing all players to wear cages this fall and I've got a couple questions. I bought a medium ReAkt helmet last winter which came with a medium cage. The cage itself was much too small so I exchanged it for a large in the event I ever wanted to try a cage. When I secure the cage it sits outside the J hooks (too wide). do some people add spacers to the J hooks to help with the added width? any suggestions would be welcomed!!

    Skate Fitment Help Needed

    Hey all, I am new to hockey and nowhere near the greatest skater, and I need experienced advice. Being from East Tennessee (not a very hockey friendly part of the country) my local pro-shop at the rink is smaller than most gas stations. Their inventory consist of a couple different Easton skates, so I don't have a lot of choices. From my online research on various model fitment I think that I have it narrowed down (please correct me if I'm wrong). Bauer Supreme, Bauer Nexus, or Reebok 12k,14k,16k? When I say "new to hockey" I mean this will be my first skates ever.... I was leaning to the Reebok's because of the softer more comfortable boot (as per reviews). But, without trying them on I'm concerned about the fit with my foot shape. Any help or opinions is greatly appreciated.
  16. New member here, and I couldn't find much information about the sizing of Stevens referee pants. I don't know of a shop in a three-state region which carries decent player gear, much less referee gear, so I'm stuck ordering online. Anyway, I'm a 30" waist, 5'8", and ordered the Stevens pro pant with built-in padding in size M. They are way too big (falling off me at the waist, as well as the thigh padding is too far down the legs, protecting my knees instead of thighs.) I'm going to return them for the Stevens shell pants and a girdle underneath, as I don't like the padding arrangement anyway. Are the shell pants sized just as large as the padded pants? Too bad they don't make the Combat 300 pants anymore, those were the best...

    Strange skate fit problem

    I'm sure there might already be a thread on this topic, but I couldn't find it. I have been wearing Bauer supreme one60's this season in size 8.5 EE. My main problem is the width of the skate directly adjacent to my (very low) arch (the outside edge of my foot) being too tight and feeling like my foot is being crushed latterly. Also, my ankle bones do not sit in the pre formed ankle spots inside the boot, they sit lower and more forward toward the lace eyelets. While I'm sure that after more use my ankle will just wear their own dimple in the foam padding, it still causes pain after about an hour of hard skating. Before purchasing the supremes I also tried on a pair of vapors as we ass reebok. The vapors were completely the wrong shape, didn't seem to fit anywhere. When I tried the reeboks, they were too wide in the midfoot in both D and E. I'm just wondering if there is a particular skate that will work better for me? As I absolutely love bauer skates. Ps. I JUST pass the pencil test.
  18. Graf ultra G3 size 8.0r and Bauer X60 7.5r which one is wider in the fore foot? No way for me to try on the grafs, the x 60 was to tight at the lowest two laces. Thanks for your help.
