  1. Past hour
  2. Vs the O1, the R1 chassis has a larger radius to provide more support and stability when pushing off. The smaller radius in the rear allows to still get the smoothness in turns and longer wheel contact with the surface. It offers 4 different interchangeable radius inserts so you can customize according to personal preference. The O1 has a straight 4 ft radius. The R1 comes with the combinations: 5 (rear)-8 (front) ft, 8-8ft, 5-15ft and 8-15ft. //Per, Inventor
  3. He needed to get these out before marsblade launches the R1, now his definitely going to need back up from one of the hockey companies.
  4. At that price I jumped on the preorder as well!
  5. Today
  6. Yes, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the new version vs. Sprungs and the originals (as I'm sure many others would). Of course, by then the presale price will be gone. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the OG Marsblades vs. Sprungs?
  7. Just pre-ordered mine, very interested in this version. Got 2 original Marsblade going strong for multiple years, plus 1 Sprung, so this will be very interesting to compare.
  8. The new Alkali Revel line is Hilo as well. So either the patent expired or both Marsblade and Alkali found a loophole.
  9. The O1s definitely sit tall. That was the biggest adjustment when I first started skating with. It was/is still worth given the much easier transition from playing ice to roller and vice versa much more smoother. From the looks of it, the R1s do look to have a lower profile.
  10. I didn’t realize the new version was Hilo when I saw their post earlier. Did that patent die off or get relaxed recently? Thought Bauer “ owned” it, but feel tour just released a line with that setup too recently. Never used the original, but always thought they looked “tall”. Wonder if this version fixes that, if it was just a perception thing, or it that’s just a part of how these will always be (tall).
  11. Good question. I've been using the off-ice training model for 2 years now for playing and I've really enjoyed them. I've always been concerned about how the O1s would hold up though. The R1 chassis is what I hope is the right upgrade.
  12. The promotional video looks good, however; I'd like to hear more about the specific details of the product. Obviously the lower portion is aluminum and it's hi lo (80mm 80mm 76mm 76mm for the medium and large chassis), but were there other changes vs. original off ice training model?
  13. Literally just saw this on Instagram. Looks like this may be my next big hockey purchase haha!
  14. This is good advice and can help immensely because a low, hard wrist shot has a lot of similarities to a long, elevated outlet pass. Why, in my experience, defensemen typically have stronger low wrist shots. (cause we all know in beer league, when a defensemen gets possession of the puck at the goal line, all the forwards are already at the red line!...lol).
  15. The combination of wrist rolling, top hand separation, and a sweeping low following through seems to be helping. I was about 85% today with about 200 shots. It's funny, I just never concentrated on wristers before. I'd stay after practice and work on slapshots and one-timers (if someone else stayed) until the maintenance guy kicked me out. It's also been forever since I had this much practice time.
  16. Can you pass the puck on the ice with the p92? If so, you can shoot low. Keep your weight over the puck, follow through low and you should be good to go.
  17. Yesterday
  18. More observations...cuz there ain't nothin' else to do... So...I am practicing with an 82 flex cut to come up to the same place it would with skates, so...it's probably like a 105 at this point. I'm sure that's not helping anything with my 165lb frame Rolling my hands more deliberately...is definitely helping...so is keeping my top hand farther out, so...thanks for that! Sure hope my stickhandling practice translates to the ice cuz...I'm actually getting good at it! This needs to end...I gotta skate! Ok...I'll be patient. We got enough dumba**es out there...don't want to contribute to that. If I owned a rink...I know where I'd be everyday! Stay frosty boys and girls
  19. Finally something to get excited about!
  20. I hear you. Let me be more clear...slap shots I've always seemed to be able to put anywhere. Low and hard boomers are not a problem. I've just always scored up high, and my coaches encouraged it as I was successful. Wristers...that's where I struggle to stay low with harder shots.
  21. Not doubting you’re playing experience at all, just pontificating on differences.... I feel like when I play higher levels of hockey, shots from the point are always coming in low. People can very reliably be in front of the net and not worry about taking one in the stomach or chest or face. And when I play at lower levels, dudes are just ripping high shots from wherever without regard to anyone’s safety or accuracy or whether that corner shot is actually going to miss high and rim around and be a breakout for the other team.
  22. First thing you can try is to take some footage of yourself shooting and see if you're doing what you think you're doing. Sometimes, we're not as low as we think we are, or we're not doing something as much as it feels like we're doing it. Sometimes, even though it feels like we're over exaggerating, it turns out it's still not enough. Second, I used a p92 and a p28. Shooting low isn't exactly my goto, but here are some things that came to mind. - Release a little earlier. Drive the puck hard, but shorten up on your follow through. -Try releasing off different parts of the blade. With a p92, if it's on the toe, it's going up. Maybe a little more off the middle of the blade or even the heel. -Try more of a sweeping follow through. What I mean by that is, try and keep the toe of the blade on the ice even on the follow through. - Try getting the top hand out more away from your body. The further out your top hand is the more it closes the blade and reduces the initial loft of the blade on the start of the shot. And finally, maybe try looking at some NHL video of players shooting 5-hole. See if you can pick up some things that you can try. Here's one I found. Some are dekes, but there are some nice low shots mixed in.
  23. Last week
  24. Appreciate the response. I've been out there shooting quite a bit, and I am working on the technique including rolling my wrists. It occurred to me this afternoon that I may be standing too upright. The mechanics are harder to emulate off-ice than many realize. Every nuance is very different. I'm pretty determined, and I'm grateful for your input.
  25. The P88 is a lower lie and the blade is a bit shorter. It's fairly easy to go back and forth, but there will definitely be an adjustment period every time you switch. For me it's about 2 or 3 shifts, depending on how much I handle the puck. Keeping shots low with the P92 is actually pretty easy. Just concentrate on rolling your wrists over when you shoot, and shoot more from the middle or mid-heel part of the blade.
  26. I can try one for rec. wherein I gotta keep it low or hurt someone...use the P92 for my upper league games. I wonder if that'll screw up all the stuff that is second nature with the 92? Only one way to find out I guess
