    The Search for Skates

    So, the question everyone always asks "What's the best skate for me?" Background: I had ankle surgery back in 2010. At the time, I was wearing Supreme One60 9EEs. My ankle had been swollen, and after the operation, had gone down. A LHS had set me up in Nexus Elevates (a SMU in 2012 which are Nexus 400, with some upgrades from 600 and 800) in a 9.5D. Been wearing them, and still are wearing them, they are awesome. But I've put some miles on them. In 2015, I was at a LHS a few hours away, putzing around, and expressed an interest in some new skates. The guy there was super knowledgable, and tried to put me into some Nexus 7000s. Something didn't feel right, so he tried to put me into some Jetspeeds (This was right after they switched from RBZ to Jetspeed, so he was under the impression they were still a wider skate). He tweaked them a bit, shims and what not, felt awesome. Sold half price since had over stock. I get home, get them baked at the local sports store (whom suck) and went out for my first rip in them...felt ok. After 2 or 3 skates, because unknowingly how narrow they were and the baking... it changed the fit, and aggravated the injury I had had repaired in the ankle. Puts me out for the entire season. I give them to a friend who plays Junior, and he loved them, so at least they went to good use. Fast forward to last Christmas, I notice an online store is having a Boxing Day blowout, and they have Nexus Elevates on sale, which are now a version of the N7000 with some upgrades from the N8 and N9000s. I order the 9.5D, because I think "Hey, self, it's the exact same line, what could go possibly wrong?" Ended up with another injury, couldn't skate that season as well. Fast forward to now. I finally have a change to bust out my new skates. Throw them on. Go for a skate. What the serious hell? These feel nothing like my old Nexus. I go to stop, fall over. My ankles wobble in them. So i switch back to my old pair, everything is good. I start doing some research here, there, and everywhere. Find out in 2014 with the Nexus 4000-8000 line they changed the way the boot is built and it doesn't fit the same as the old one does. Peachy. So I'm stuck with a set of skates way too big. Not a big deal, I'll sell them privately, but would still like to get some new ones. Also on the boards here saw some posts from a fella who indicated the newer nexus boots 'point up', and if you're used to the older ones, need to be shimmed in the rear. Which is weird, I guess. So the big question (after a long story) is: what fits like that old Nexus line? I did get a 3D Skate Lab scan done, and they said either Supreme 9EE or Nexus 9EE. Is the solution just to go down that half size and go wider? I tried both the S160 and S170 in store, and even in 9EE they don't fit right. Tried the N8000 in 9EE and it felt close, and I suppose I could get a few punches done, but is that the solution? I did find a pair of RBZ 9EE on clearance online that I ordered (and can return) to see if they would fit. Sorry for the long story. Any help would be appreciated!
  2. Hi All, Longtime lurker, first time poster...;) This is a fantastic forum and resource for all things hockey equipment related so I thought what better place to ask my question! I'm looking to get my name embroidered onto my Bauer Nexus gloves on the cuff or the side (whatever)...anyone have any recommendations in the Greater Toronto Area (or anywhere else)? Please let me know and thanks in advance!

    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

    Nexus 1N now on myBauer

    For those who have been anticipating this stick, it seems that the Nexus 1N is now up for customization on myBauer Looks like the colour palette for the stick is limited compared to others (No green, orange, or maroon like I believe the MX3 has) Also the price has jumped by $20 I think.

    Wheel Setup

    I just recently decided to get into roller. I'm converting my nexus boot and I had a question regarding the wheels since I'm a noobie when it comes to inline. The chassis I'm putting is a labeda sensors that had a 76-72-80-80 setup. Should I just keep this way when I convert or so change it?

    What Stick Should I get?

    I'm in the market looking for a new stick. I've been using the Nexus 8000 for a while and I like it but I'm in the market for a new stick. I've been using Bauer sticks for the last 10 years and I want to try something new. I'm looking at the Easton CX Stealth or the Warrior HD Pro. Anyone have any feedback on those sticks? What's the comparison to to the Nexus 8000? Cheers!

    Glove recommendations?

    I've been using my Easton EQ50 Elite gloves for only about 4 months, and the stitching in the fingers have worn out twice, the second time being today. When I was showing my mom the hole, I noticed another hold in the middle of the index finger. I'm really disappointed because I really likes these gloves. They were really comfortable and the cuff didn't take anything away from my shots, which I had problems with in the Stealth line. I used to have Bauer 4-roll's and I hated them because they were too loose. These are 4-roll style gloves as well, but they felt great. Any suggestions as to what gloves I should take a look at?
  9. It ma by too soon to ask, but from just a quality and longevity stand point which skate will last longer CCM crazy light, or Bauer nexus 1000?
  10. Trying to decide on whether to purchase the Mako 2 as there's a good deal going on now. My recent history with sticks: - Last Easton I had was a S19, Roy/Gaborik pattern, 100 Flex. I felt the stick had a decent feel, good for shooting but I hated the curve. - For the most part I'm a Bauer guy, in the past 2 years I've used an retail TotalOne (P88/102), Pro stock NXG (P92L clone/87), Pro stock APX (P92L clone/87), retail APX (P14/87 ), retail APX (P88/77), special edition APX (P92/102), retail Nexus 1000 (P88/102). Out of all those I like the NXG the best for feel but overall performance has been a toss up between the pro stock APX and the retail P14 APX. So essentially the APX flex profile and P92 has seemed to work the best for me. I know the different flex profiles between Easton and Bauer will certainly affect the performance, but for those that have played with both the APX and the Mako 2 what were the biggest differences you noticed? Given that my last Easton stick was a few model cycles ago and my general impression from the S19 was that it was a good stick if you're a big shooter (which I'm not) but it was only ok for other aspects, I'd appreciate any honest feedback you guys might have. I'm currently eyeing the Mako 2 Grip in P3/85 flex.
  11. http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php?/files/file/155-2013-bauer-hockey-catalogue/ Skates - This year, Vapor gets the update; flagship skate is the Vapor APX2. The major changes boot-wise are the lacing system - instead of plastic layered in between materials and then grommeted with metal eyelets, it is a solid pre-cut piece, made of the same plastic that is used in holders. The premise behind it is that it will maximize energy as well as provide stability to the boot. Also, no need to worry about rusting eyelets; there aren't any. The holes are D-shaped, which help maintain flat laces. The tongue is also new for 2013; it is a 3-piece tongue; thicker felt on top, but thinner on the foot for a better fit. The X 100 skate is essentially the same spec as the Vapor APX from last year, and the X 90 replaces the 7.0. Supreme and Nexus remain unchanged for 2013. The other big advance in this category is the Tuuk Lightspeed EDGE holder. The holder height has been bumped up 3mm in both towers for a greater attack angle; you are able to turn tighter because the ability to get lower on your turns has been increased. But what is arguably its greatest feature is the blade attachment mechanism; it employs a trigger which is recessed in the last hole in the holder bridge. Pull the trigger and the runner is released; when you put the steel back in, it snaps back in and locks the trigger. It's a great system for those who keep sets of replacement steel and rotate them; very convenient. Bauer will be telling this story on all of their skate boxes as well as an education on optimal skate hollows; in a collaboration with Blackstone Sports, they will list optimal FBV and ROH hollows for your body weight and ice conditions. The Lightspeed EDGE will be available on all Vapor skates from APX2 to X 60 (which is the 3rd skate in the line, going up from the entry level X 40) as well as aftermarket, in all runner options (Fusion/LS2/LS3.) Sticks - Nothing new now; sticks change in October 2013. Helmets and Facial - RE-AKT remains unchanged for 2013. The IMS 11.0 is what is replacing the Cascade M11 Pro; the biggest advance in the helmet is that they are backing up the Seven technology (more on that later) with PoronXRD in key areas. It still keeps the same adjustment system as the M11 Pro. Another key feature is that the Poron and the foam liner in the helmet will be perforated for airflow; which was my biggest issue when I was using the M11 Pro. MSRP $159, available June 15, made in Liverpool, NY, along with all of the different colorways. The IMS 9.0 is the same shell as the RE-AKT (other than that it now has a spring-loaded occipital lock system instead of the tab that is on the RE-AKT,) however, the internals are different. It has their Vertex foam, but doesn't have the Suspend-Tech liner that is found on the RE-AKT. It has a thin layer of VN on top of the Vertex, so at first glance, if you were to flip the helmet around and look into it, it'd look like a VN helmet. It is essentially what a pro VN RE-AKT would look like, if it existed. One point that has to be made is that every NHLer you saw wearing a RE-AKT was wearing the off-the-shelf version. So, now, they have an option if they like that fit/VN feel and don't want the Suspend-Tech, and so do you. MSRP $139, available April 15. The IMS 7.0 is the M11 helmet, however, with the redesigned Seven Technology. Seven tested really well for high-impact, however, not as good on the low-impact side, as the majority of hockey hits are exactly that. The solution was to soften the coils so that they compress easier. MSRP $119, available June 15, made in Liverpool, NY, along with all of the different colorways. 9900 will still be offered in the line through 2013. Facial remains unchanged, but one product has (finally) been tweaked, and that is the Concept2. It is now known as the Concept3; enhanced vision and airflow; vents have been made bigger, and now it comes with a double-coat of anti-scratch material in addition to anti-fog. Even comes with a helmet bag. Gloves - The big change for gloves is the Supreme line; inspired by what the Rangers do to their gloves, the main feature of the Supreme TotalONE NXG is the addition of PoronXRD to the pad that sits on your hand in the glove. It will be lined, however. This addition makes it 23% more protective than the previous TotalONE glove. Single-layer nash palm with three PU patches in key areas for wear. MSRP $179. Followed by the ONE.8/6/4. Continuing with the whole family thing, the Supreme 4-Roll is now a Nexus - the Nexus 1000 has dual density EPP in the rolls, equating to 15% more protection than the previous 4-roll. 3-piece thumb, nash palm with a black nash overlay, airmesh gussets. MSRP $169. The Nexus 800 is identical to the 4-Roll, so no worries for those who like that style glove. Vapor line remains for 2013. Protective - Supreme, Vapor and Nexus are now three complete families with three distinct fit profiles; Supreme is an anatomical fit, Vapor a tapered and Nexus is a traditional fit, if you will. The new TotalONE pant system is comprised of two parts; the inner girdle still has the mobility and adjustment aspects of a standard wrap girdle, however, has their Vent Armor in the hip and kidney areas. It is fastened to the shell using a patented system that has strong Velcro tabs; one in the back and two on the sides. Now, the outer shell has stretch/wear zones and padding in the kidney and thigh areas, just like what NHL EQMs (and me) have been doing. NXG comes in at $149, only sold in combos, however, the shell will be sold separately if you need to change colors. The ONE.8 version comes in at $119, and will offer a custom program for team sales. Nexus inherits the Supreme pant line from years past - small tweak by adding EPP in the kidney area. Also, the standard pant shell offering has been modified to fit over pants, not girdles. Vapor line remains for 2013. The latest retail trend is for the NHL-spec 1/2" foam shoulder caps to trickle down to retail, which is a good thing. Bauer is taking a different approach to it; what they did was to add two densities of Vent Armor foam (a layer of plastic is sandwiched between to keep the cap shape); the softer foam will be on the top of the cap, and the denser foam will be on the inside of the cap, all the while maintaining the same thickness of previous Bauer shoulder caps. That's the premise behind the NXG shoulder pad, also, the rear of the shoulder pad (areas where a player would get cross-checked) has been improved, trickling down to the ONE.6 pad. New tooling on the elbow pads - there is a groove along the middle of the pad so that it fits closer to the elbow. On the NXG, the part that touches the elbow is PoronXRD, followed by a mid-density foam, then the shell, and then a softer cap on top of the shell. On the shin, PoronXRD in the kneecap as well. These areas are uncovered; the thought is that most players use baselayers nowadays, and since elbow/shin pads fit closer to the body, it won't shift and adds a more comfortable feel. Release date is April 15 on protective.

    Bauer Nexus 1000 Skate

    Foot spec - Wide forefoot, wide heel, small arch Last skate worn - Bauer Supreme TotalONE NXG Size - 10.5D Length of review - since August 2012 The Bauer Nexus line debuted in 2012, replacing the Flexlite (as a third skate for Bauer) line. The direction of the line was to offer a skate that would be more traditional in terms of technology, as well as an emphasis on comfort. The Nexus 1000 line is a standalone fit; the 800 on down fit more like the Flexlite did. Fit/Break-in - The Nexus 1000 is built on an oversize last; a D will actually be a true-to-last EE. The boot is pretty much straight-walled; the forefoot tends to be similar to a Vapor EE (albeit with a roomier toecap) however, the boot has a deeper fit and a relaxed lacing pattern, which ends to a wider heel. The skate fit me decently in this aspect; just a tad bit wider than what I've been using in the past few years. The instep was a little bit higher as well. Skate feels extremely supple inside; harkens back to how mid-90s Supreme skates used to feel, with the tan Clarino and plush padding. I baked them once; had a little bit of issues with the right skate, which was because I was overtightening them while lacing. Once I figured out the optimal lacing, my problems were minimal. The only glaring issue I had (and when I write these things, I try to put it in a global context; what may not work for me may work for you) was the tongue. It's a 52oz felt with a lace-bite guard. It had been years since I skated with a felt tongue, and quite frankly, I prefer a molded one nowadays. There were times in which I was fighting it; they would twist on me while I skated. I went ahead and flopped them, but since I was lacing them up fully, the break was before the metatarsal guard. I got to use them about 5 times after I did, and while it improved it slightly, it wasn't something I was fully able to solve. Break-in process went extremely well; it has been one, if not the quickest skates for me to break-in. 8.5/10 (deducted 1 point due to tongue) Performance - As I stated earlier; the line was geared towards those who prefer a traditional boot and put an emphasis on comfort over performance. You don't get the added perks that the Supreme and Vapor offer in terms of their quarter packages, however, you're not exactly getting a circa 1994 boot here. Not once did I feel limited by the skate in any way. One of my main concerns going in was the stiffness - I had said that in the Initial Thoughts thread as well as the LTR - but that thought was eviscerated once I hit the ice. It was plenty supportive on the foot, as well as giving me a bit of forgiveness in the ankle area, which is always a good thing. Don't get it twisted - this is a pro-level boot. 8.75/10 Blade/Holder - The skate comes with a LS2 holder and LS Fusion steel. Halfway throughout the review, I picked up a Step BlackSteel project to review, which has no bearing on this review, so I'll use my standard LS2 score from previous reviews. 9/10 Weight- The skate was not designed to be the skate for the gram-counters out there, however, it is surprisingly light; much lighter than skates in its class/spec. 8.5/10 Protection - When I do reviews for helmets, I mention I'm not a crash-test dummy. The same concept applies for my skate protection; if I'm by my defensive zone hash mark and it's not because I'm lining up for a faceoff, something wrong has happened. I don't get in front of shots. However, the Nexus 1000 does have a bit of padding to it; the internals consist of high-density foam with additional reinforcements. The outer quarter package is Tech Mesh, which was used on top-end non-Curv Vapors (X 7.0, X:60, XXXX, XXX, XX) so it should stand up to rigorous play. 9/10 Durability - I haven't had any issues with anything on the skate; the boots are well-made, no stitching issues, no major gouges, and the wear properties of the Clarino liner have always been strong. 10/10 Conclusion - All in all, it was a pleasant experience reviewing these skates. They've visually appealing, they perform well, and they fill a void in Bauer's lineup. You still see those guys out there with their older Supremes, Tacks or Grafs, and simply refuse to adapt to the technology-driven boots of today. With these, they can be with the times however still maintain the comfort level they are used to. While I like to be on the bleeding-edge of technology personally, these skates certainly didn't hold me back, and should meet your needs for a workhorse skate. Overall - 53.75/60 = 89% Shout-Outs - Once again, must thank Keith Duffy, who is the Sr. Skate Product Manager at Bauer Hockey, for supplying me with a pair. As with every manufacturer, I've always had an excellent rapport with Bauer and our discussions and feedback I have provided to them has been warmly received. Please address any questions you may have in my Initial Thoughts thread. Also, if you want to track the progress here is the Long-Term Review on the skate. It will still be updated to reflect any change on the product.
