CSW is using a product called ultrastop. It seems to be similar but with a foam backing. 

I see on amazon and eBay four sheets roughly 22$. Is it overly complicated to do? Like molding along the skate etc?

Nope, not at all. If you have enough, I would make a test run on something just to get a feel for the material. But for all four panels, it maybe took me 90 minutes.

Wow. I think I might try it. Did you use double sided tape to adhere it?

Forgot to take a picture of my awesome cake day presents. Decided to go back to the Covert line of sticks from the Alpha, and from the Covert QRL gloves to the Alpha Pro gloves. Haven't used the stick yet but the used the gloves last week in a game and they were amazing, felt broken in right away, and had so much more mobility than my QRL's, which now feel very restrictive. Wish I made the switch sooner. 

Also, another little treat, which I will not be wearing on the ice, a USA 1960 Nike replica throwback jersey. All in all, makes turning 32 pretty good.

My white whale:

Specs-wise, a modified PM9: the heel curve's been toned-down and a toe curve added, with the toe being the dominant pocket; like an X28 Lite. On top of that were optionals I was hoping for but considered unrealistic longshots: a slightly lower lie at the heel (shaved there like the Warrior Gionta) and a squarish toe similar to the old Montreal PC pattern. I've never been able to make moves as naturally with another pattern as with the PC.

I may have missed previous chances because this guy was never on my radar in the hunt for these specs...

Now to find ice time to try it out and see if the hunt was worth it.

Found these in a used sporting goods store on a trip to Buffalo:

The water the tap is putting out is clear.  I'm expecting a good five washes until the water runs kinda clear.  Then I hit it with oxyclean.

Bought these on ebay to mess around in.  They appear minimally used.  I'll give them a soak and an air dry (unless my research on old leather reveals something else) at some point this weekend.

Holy hell these leather gloves are going to require a lot of time if I ever want to break them in.

Picked up the Tackla girdle to try. Gotta be the lightest girdle I’ve ever put on. I’ll get a more accurate weight ASAP. It has a tag saying “do not machine wash,” but I Removed the pads so I could wash it, because I’m a loner Dottie, a rebel

Did you get it used or new?

These would go great with my JDP 2000 elbows I've been using since I was 9 (1999). Great find!

Picked up some step blacksteel. Will be interested to see if it feels any different than v-steel.

Wow, that was the old design when I was a kid!  Nice!  There some new BDP Pros I am tempted to grab right now, love the old stuff.

Those were my first gloves back in the day when I was a kid.

I honestly don't know why whoever owns Cooper (Bauer?) or other glove manufacturers don't offer a black diamond type pattern for one of their gloves.

It may not outsell basic black or team colors but it would do well with older players.  Don't need to come up with a new gloves, just a fabric pattern.
