    Painting Helmet Vents?

    Before heads explode I KNOW that painting a helmet is dumb and weakens the plastic and comes off and looks terrible. And I already contacted Bauer and they will not sell just the ventsThis is why I ask. My little guy who is 10 plays rep hockey non contact. Well his regular team due to politics will be taking a year off to move leagues. Due to his regular team colors being Navy and powder blue will not work with the Black and Orange of the team he is playing for this season. Luckily he has a black Bauer Re-akt 75 in all black that we bought this summer for ball hockey. But the coach prefers the vents on the helmet to be orange. Well as he already owns 2 $160 helmets buying a 3rd is just not something I want to do.Sooooooo I was wondering if there was a way to paint the vents orange. I bought some 3M vinyl which works but it's a pain. I was thinking Orange krylon fusion and super light coats.
  2. Hi guys, Hopefully this is the best place to ask about this sort of thing (please let me know if it isn't). But I was going through our attic, and found this red Cooper SK600 hockey helmet still in its packaging. We're selling our old stuff, so my first impulse was to see how much I could reasonably sell it for. I came across this eBay listing which listed a similar helmet for $145 USD. But as we all know, some eBay listing prices can be totally bogus. Here's a few more pictures of the helmet: So with that said- how much should I be selling this helmet for? Chump change, or more than that?
  3. In your opinion what do you think is the best looking helmet and cage combo? I personally use a Navy Bauer Re-akt (color needed for team) with a chrome CCM FM460 cage that i think looks pretty sweet. So what is your favorite combo?
  4. What do people think are the nicest helmet/cage combinations? I'm currently switching between a black CCM Tacks 710 with a CCM FM480 chrome, a black Bauer 4500 with an oreo Profile II, and a black Bauer ReAkt with a CCM FM480 chrome. I'll post photos of the 710 and the reakt when I figure out how to
  5. After seeing a couple guys take a puck to the face recently I've decided to switch to a full cage for the first time. I'm not sure if the color/finish really helps with visibility. I've heard white is the best for blending in, anyone have experience with this? All help is appreciated.

  7. Hello, My daughter just made a 14U AAA team for this spring and fall. She is on the smaller side for height and weight but has a lot of speed. I want to make sure that I purchase her the best helmet for her to stay as safe as possible. I know fit is most important so I'm taking her to try these helmets on, but if they all fit good which one would work the best. I'm not looking at price at the moment and it has to be red. These are the options I'm looking at: Bauer RE-AKT 200 - Leaning towards this one because of the high quality cushion Bauer RE-AKT 95 (Not out yet) Warrior PX3+ If you have any other suggestions I would appreciate it.
  8. 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?
  9. Hey Dudes I had a quick question about getting a new helmet. My current bucket's HECC certification expires in about a month and its not that comfortable anyway so I'm on the market for a new one I noticed the higher end helmets are ranged to just under 300$ and some are less than 100$ I obviously know that higher end helmets have nicer foam on the inside and are better for protecting your head and such, but I was curious if I was to buy a more expensive helmet do they have a longer HECC certification since they have better tech and materials into them to keep them safe? Wondering because my league cracks down on the HECC dates and more certification longevity would make more sense for getting the nicer helmet.. Plus they look better Thanks guys
  10. So whenever I play i wear a cage, not wearing one is not an option for me. well the part where I screw the top of my cage into is damaged and i'm not able to screw into it as well as it doesnt have a sturdy foundation(it spins freely and moves loosely). I was wondering if there is any way i can replace this piece or if i can send it to anyone to get it fixed. It is out of warranty so that isnt an option. if there's anyway with the re akt to switch shells i could maybe do that as i have a perfectly fine white re akt 100 but my travel team requires a black helmet. Any help would be great, i don't want such a small malfunction ruin such an expensive/quality helmet.
  11. My beloved Easton S19 helmet got cracked so I hopped online to buy a new helmet. I've had mine for several years so it's been a while since I've shopped; I've been very happy with it so I figured I'd just get the latest Easton model similar to the S19. (I like how it fits, as well as it being very low profile -- good for my giant head ). Looked like I'd get the E700, which looks like an evolved S19 with good reviews. However from what I've seen... have ALL Easton helmets been discontinued? The E700 and lower models are the only ones listed on Easton's own website, yet they do not exist anywhere for sale (even on ebay or clearance, all I can find is small and XS, or in rare colors... need a large, ideally black). I've read some stuff about unbranded or rebranded Easton helmets, but don't really know much about that. If I cannot find one anywhere, are there any replacements on the horizon? Or a Bauer or something with a nearly identical low-profile shell? Anything with a similar fit? Or is Easton toast and am I starting completely from scratch now looking for an all new brand, style and fit that I like? Thanks!
  12. Easton E700 helmet In need of replacement pads! Basically down to the Velcro on some of the sections of the helmet which is really uncomfortable. I would really appreciate if someone had an extra helmet or pads for this helmet lying around. I would be willing to pay, let me know. Thanks!
  13. I recently bought some second-hand hockey pants and there is no way I could give them back, I also wouldn't want to buy some new ones either. I am trying to figure out how to keep the pants up higher so they don't get in the way. Although I still have not found out what to do yet, any comment, answer would be great. My helmet fits fine at the store, but when I go to practice, my temples start hurting a lot as if someone was squeezing my head super hard. The pain would start probably around 35-50 minutes in. I first had a CCM XT (forgot the size), and the pain would start earlier than the helmet I have now which is the Reebok XT medium. The Reebok one does not hurt as much, but probably will hurt the same when I use it during a game. Any comment would be great. I was thinking of cutting the EPP foam a little but read some articles saying that would void the certification. Recommendations for a wide head, probably a round head would also be great. (Best if the helmet recommendations are under $60) Also the helmets have cages. New edit: Is there any way I could alter ski pants suspenders to fit the hockey pants?

    CCM Fitlite 3DS

    CCM Fitlite 3DS Helmet (Navy Blue, Size Large, Paired with an Oakley Visor) Background: I have worn the original Reebok 8K helmet and Bauer 4500 helmet, but for the past five years-ish I have worn, exclusively, the CCM v08. The v08 fits my head perfectly, and I had/have them in a myriad of different colors. However, the foams, in a few of them, have started to turn yellow and hard. My navy blue v08 was the first to get to the point of being unusable (I used it the most of the bunch) and I replaced it with the Fitlite 3DS. I play 3-4 games/pickups per week, and I have a small history of concussions and long history of migraine headaches. So, it was important, in replacing my beloved v08s, that I be completely comfortable and feel very-well protected. Fit: This was, perhaps, where I was most worried about going to a new helmet. Because of my past history of concussions and migraines, I am very picky about what is on my head. From past experience, something as minor as a baseball hat fitting slightly too tight will result in a crippling headache. That being said, I am very happy with how this helmet fits. Between the no-tool size adjustment and the Micro Dial III occipital lock I am really able to dial-in the fit of this helmet. I also have a good deal of hair, and as the game goes on, and the hair gets soaked down, I am able to easily adjust the fit to keep the helmet snug, but not uncomfortably tight. The gel pads on the interior of the helmet are very comfortable, and as of writing, my hair is not getting caught in any glue, etc. (Which was something I hated about the Reebok 8K). 10/10 Protection: I believe in the concept that a perfectly-fitting helmet is the most protective helmet. With how well this helmet fits, I feel well protected in it. Fortunately, I have not been put in a situation where the overall protectiveness of this helmet has been put to the test. Minor jostling for position and work along the boards has left me no worse for wear. 10/10 Weight: Again, back to the way the helmet fits… because it fits so well, the helmet’s weight is distributed really well over my head. I do not notice that the helmet is there, I am not fiddling with it during the game. It does not get in the way. So, I do not notice any weight. It feels lighter than my v08s did/do. This helmet also breathes really well, I do notice that the sweat does not drip off of me the way it does when wearing a v08. This is a pleasant change, as I do not find myself having to towel off my face/hair/visor anywhere near as much. 10/10 Durability: The no-tool adjustment is really nice, but there are some pretty ugly scuff marks on the shell of the helmet from sliding the two parts of the helmet in and out. It is something small that really does not affect anything, but for a $260 helmet that has not taken any real damage or abuse, I wish this was not an issue. 7/10 Intangibles: The helmet feels really well put together. Nothing seems like it is on the verge of breaking (My 8K’s occipital lock seemed like it was held together with bubble gum and butterfly wings.) The helmet also passes the “mirror test” in my opinion, it looks good. 10/10 Conclusion: I am thoroughly impressed with this helmet. I was upset when I found out that the v08s were being discontinued because of how great they fit, the great protection they offered, and the very reasonable price they could be had for. I was worried, especially after I tried on the Resistance line and a few other non-CCM helmets, that I was going to have a very hard time finding something to replace them when they needed it. I am happy to say that I found their replacement. I also will have another one on the way (black/black) to replace my black v08 that has had the foams go yellow/hard. The price is a little steep, but to me, it is a price well worth it for a helmet that fits so well, and (in theory) will protect my head/brain. I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone that is in the market for a new lid, and happens to have the head-shape that this helmet works for. Final Score: 47 out of 50

    Bauer RE-AKT Helmet

    I had been LTRing the RE-AKT helmet over here - http://www.modsquadh...-re-akt-helmet/ and decided to wrap it up. For tear-down pictures, see the Teardown thread - http://www.modsquadh...oughtsteardown/ Length of use - 2 months Fit - Very good, for my head. Absolutely zero pressure points anywhere on the helmet, at any time during the review process. Very good feel around the temples/sides due to the block of PoronXRD padding there. Gives you the feeling of a well-fitting helmet without the bulk associated with other helmets. 10/10 Protection - New technologies, new foam, new concept. Unfortunately, there's no way for me to prove/disprove that it does as advertised. N/A Weight - Lighter - not Easton E700 weight (Bauer RE-AKT came in at 484g compared to Easton's 355g) but lighter than most out there. 9.5/10 Durability - No issues with any moving parts (size and occipital adjustment) or anything structural, however, did have an issue with one of the helmet screw pads. One of them decided to break free and spin. The procedure is to cut through the pad and use a pair of pliers to hold it in place so that you can take out the screw, which renders the screw pad useless after that. I was sent replacement pads and was told that the production model will have the updated ones, which will be stainless steel anchors. 8/10 Intangibles - The biggest test for me with the helmet was how it handled sweat, and I'll tell you that it passed that test. Ventilation also is good in it, on par with helmets on the market. A bit of bleed from the Vertex foam onto the back of the Suspend-Tech liner, but that is just cosmetic. 9/10 Conclusion - One of the things that it really has going for it is how much was taken out of the helmet and with what it was replaced with. It truly gives you a streamlined-looking helmet, however, with substance. The price may scare off a few potential buyers, but Bauer and other manufacturers with "ultra-premium" helmets realize that awareness and education is what is going to turn the tide to get players to invest more in headgear. Final score - 46/50 = 9.2 Thanks goes out to CJ Ficek, Helmet Product Manager at Bauer Hockey, who made it possible for me to test the product early.

    duct tape mod

    check out what i did with duct tape this week check out
  17. Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to actually playing hockey and buying equipment so bear with me. I went the cheap route and bought a size Medium CCM FitLite 40 helmet/cage combo a few months ago to play hockey with, I put off playing for a while (school/work) so I never really got a chance to wear it in a game situation. I just joined a league at a local sports arena and its a pain in the ass to have sweat all over my face and not be able to wipe it off without undoing everything (don't want to go cageless or shield less), so I was wondering if a half shield would fit on this particular helmet? It says in the specs for the helmet that it is compatible with most visors but whenever I look at a visor compatability chart (Oakley, Bauer, etc.), my helmet isn't listed, so I don't want to waste money buying online for something that isn't going to fit. Today I was at a proshop and they had a Tron visor but it was too big for the helmet, the guy had to bend it to try and fit it with the screws and it bowed a lot and left a ton of open room at the top, so that didnt work out. Sucks because it was the only visor they had in-stock and it was only $30. Hope I'm not out of luck on this cause I can't return the helmet. Any help or visor suggestions (if possible) would be greatfully appreciated!

    Bauer visor

    Hi fellas! I'm looking for the visor that, at least, William Nylander in Toronto Marlies is using. I can see on the sida of the visor that it is a Bauer but I cant find the model.. Could any of You guys help me? I have searched the whole web for hours and can't find even find a clue. thanks!
  19. Hey guys I currently have the Bauer 7500 and the common problem is the pads sliding around and/or coming off because of the glue. I completely dis-assembled the helmet and removed the pads from the foam. I wanted to know the best way to clean the old glue off and use a different glue to put them back on. I wish I could get a new helmet but none of the other helmets on the market right now seem to fit my head correctly. I've already had 2 concussions from a different helmet so I'm looking for something that is very protective. I know no helmet will prevent a concussion. I tried: Warrior Krown- too much negative space 11K- Fit was pretty good but the back adjustment dial wouldn't stay put. It kept loosening on it's own. Re-Akt- Size medium moved around too much and the small wasn't deep enough. E700- fits well, but I'm not 100% sold on it having the best protection. M11 Pro- had pressure points in the back of my head. Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

    Salvage my helmet?

    I just tried to unscrew my helmet to remove my visor. One side came off very simply. The other however not so much. The screw and the post on the inside are both spinning. Any viable suggestions?
  21. 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?
  22. Hey everyone, my Re-Akt broke in transit to a recent tournament in Central Asia, and so i need a replacement. Just wondering if anyone has recommendations? I like the Re-Akt for its comfort, but i held an IMS 7.0 the other day and it made the Re-Akt seem overly heavy! Should I: 1. Replace with a new Re-Akt 2. Change to the IMS 11.0 (if the concussion protection is equal or better than the reakt) 3. Wait for the Re-Akt 100 (if it is lighter than the current reakt) Comments?

    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.

    Painting a helmet

    Okay so I'm got a re akt 100 yesterday in white as I have used white since I started playing. I like the look of whiting out most of what I use and...yeah. So what has me asking this question is if I have to wear a black helmet for maybe potentially playing an extremely high level(wishful thinking but hey, I have silly aspirations) and having to have matched helmets, I wouldn't want to make a huge investment a 2nd time simply for a black helmet and I feel as though I need to make a good investment in helmets due to me already having 3 mild concussions and in fear of getting another one. So if push came to shove...is it possible to have a helmet somehow powder coated/painted a certain color to perfection without worry of chipping?
  25. And the Year Of The Helmet (or The Year Of The Revolving Helmet on JR's Head) continues with contestant #2; the Bauer RE-AKT. As noted in our Catalogue Review, the RE-AKT is taking a different approach to protection; the main feature in the helmet is the Suspend-Tech liner, which is designed to move independently from the helmet, in order to help with controlling rotational forces during impact. Initial thoughts - The RE-AKT helmet has a simple latch in the back that flips up. Once helmet is open, adjust it, then close the latch. The Occipital Lock is now on version 3.0; it is now a single adjustment. Interior - As you can see, a combination of Vertex foam (proprietary foam that according to Bauer, handles impact better than EPP), PoronXRD and the Suspend-Tech liner. Now, the helmet is a bit more streamlined because the adjustment system has been moved to the top rear of the helmet. In its place is a big slab of PoronXRD padding; ...and if you flip it over, you will see how the shell is held together. The temple pieces are actually really neat - similar to Easton's system. No more fishing for anchors. This is how it attaches to the earguard... ...and this is how it attaches to the Suspend-Tech liner. The Suspend-Tech liner connects in three spots; the temples, the rear bolts and the front bolts. The helmet is a Medium, which according to their chart, is 7 to 7 1/2 hat size. I had always worn a Bauer L helmet to this point, so keep that in mind. The helmet feels very nice on the head; it is a different feel than the Easton E700's "plush" feel. It is a lighter helmet than almost all; the weight gains come from the removal of bulky parts and the different materials. No pinching anywhere on my head; I've worn the helmet the entire time I typed out the review. There is a small con and a maybe, which I will find out soon enough. The con is helmet stickers, notably, numbers. Due to the placement of the Occipital Lock lever, it will go right in between the helmet numbers in a standard configuration. A suggestion is to place the numbers like the NJ Devils do - on top. The "maybe" is sweat management; I shave my head and that is a big deal with me and helmets. Since the Suspend-Tech liner is smooth, my concern is that it won't absorb sweat. However, I won't know until I start sweating in it; if the ventilation is great, it may not be a problem. Stay tuned. Don't mind the visor; it is not a retail item and not a part of the review. It is Bauer's pro version of the Oakley Straight Small. I'd like to thank CJ Ficek, who is the Category Manager for Helmets and Facial for the opportunity to review this helmet; CJ and I met in October and had a great conversation about helmets and the evolution of the product. Questions? CJ will be viewing this thread so if there are any questions that are beyond my realm, I'm positive he will relay the info to me.
