    Just wanted to wish all of our members a happy Holiday season!  Obviously 2020 has been crazy and I've been working through some issues myself over the past few months and haven't been as active, I just want to say that I appreciate those who are helping out and creating content in my absence.  It's definitely noticed and appreciated!

  • Time traveler - Some gear questions

    Hello, After a decade hiatus from hockey (and hockey gear nerding, I still remember doing the Easton toy drive and getting that yellow synergy grip!), I moved back to Minnesota and picked up the sport again this winter and have been hitting outdoor rinks most evenings. Connected with some old friends to do a spring league and am pumped!  I had some trouble buying gear and felt a little out of my element, but just bought some basic stuff so I could start playing. I had a few questions r

    Narrow fit gloves

    Does anyone still offer a narrow fit? I know warrior did at one point. Are custom gloves still a thing?

    Blackstone X02 spinner question

    Do I need a new spinner to dress the wheel? https://imgur.com/a/1hPwUfy Lately I feel like I haven't been getting the quality of sharpenings I am used to.  The wheel is relatively new ruby wheel so my next thought is the spinner.  I have tried cleaning it with DW40 dry lube since it doesn't attract dust but that's about it.

    50 Flex Sticks

    I know that Bauer and CCM have changed their 50 flex junior sticks to have a normal sized blade (instead of the small junior ones), does anyone know if Warrior has done the same? Also, if anyone has experience using one of any brand, do you find anything detrimental about it?

    A "Heavy" CCM Jetspeed FT4 Pro Stick??

    Just took delivery of a new 85 FLEX pro stock CCM FT4 PRO  stick purchased off Sideline Swap. As soon as I unwrapped it, it didn't feel right. Heavy. I weighed it on a digital scale, 423 grams.  In the closet I have a new FT3 PRO, which weighed in at 379 grams, even with a 3 inch longer shaft. The name plate has no name, the serial number script is also different.  What might I have here, a cheaper FT4 PRO TEAM stick? A counterfeit?

    Profile2 - Quad 0.5 (8-10-12-14) on CCM Ribcor 9 1/2 size Steel - Step blacksteel 280mm Hollow - 5/8'' About Me - I started playing/skating  when I was 5 then played at good level until 13 in leagues. Then stopped and played only maybe 8-10 times/winter at local public outdoor hockey rink just for fun until mid 30s. Then restarted in beer league at 35. Now in my late 30s. I'm a forward. I'd say a good skater and a tad faster then average skaters.

    Quad .5 losing grip

    Hi there my son says he feels like he is losing grip on a Quad .5 profile.   He is an elite U15 player has been skating on a 10/11' radius forever with a 5/8ths hollow.   Thought we'd try the .5 but can't seem to get it dailed in. Went to a 9/16ths hollow and that seemed fine for a few skates,  but after the second sharpen at 9/16th he said it felt like there was less grip again.  Any thoughts?  He is on a Step Blacksteel runner if that matters, has been on this runner before with not complaints

    Table(s) of All MSH ProSharp Reviews

    Hey Everyone! I organized all the reviews into a table with the links to each person's post. This way, you can easily see how they transitioned through each profile and read through the review chronologically. It was a little difficult to organize because people were usually getting back several runners in batches, but I tried my best. I wanted to share a direct link to the spreadsheet, but wasn't sure how to do that anonymously, so the data has just been pasted in several posts below. I ha

About Me –  I've been skating regularly for 10 years, started in my early 20's and have been working on my skating ever since. I've done several power skating classes to help improve along with plenty of extra ice time to put it all together and practice. I am usually on the ice 3-4 times a week between beer league and sticks and pucks. I had my skates pro

    Coming from a Max Edge 981

    My son was using (and liking) and Maximum Edge 981 profile. He can't get this done where he is now, and the place he did get them done can't do them on steel removed from the holder. They need the boot they say to find the balance point. So I have new steel for him but can't get a 981 profile because I don't have his skates and he can't do without them. He can get a Prosharp profile where he is. Reading the groups it seems for a 280 length blade most seem to prefer the Quad 1. So my qu

  • Bauer 2X Pro

    I handed off my Bauer 1X skates to my youngest son (yes, my former "little guy" many of you might remember at Summer Jam skates is now 13, 5' 10", and wearing a 9D skate...miracle grow must be in the food supply), so it was time to look at a suitable alternative. I went back and forth looking and had some conversations with JR debating at a Hyperlite custom job...but that $1300 price tag was a tough pill to swallow right now. As luck would have it, I was able to find a pair of new 2X pros in a 9

    Grit PX4 Pro Series Hockey Bag

    Howdy, 3 more months and the Grit bag still looks identical to the pictures above.  No QC problems at all. Living with the bag, I still sometimes get a little annoyed that it doesn't hold its shape a bit better, but that's it.  I've given up trying to keep my spare jersey in the mesh pocket and it just lives on the bottom of the bag in a ziploc.  Both issues are extremely minor. Otherwise the size is exactly what I wanted, its been holding up great to playing 3 or so times a week, e

    Howdy, A few more months in and the Grit bag is holding up great.  No detectable wear at all. Definitely recommended, if you want a Pro shape bag and don't mind it being a little "floppy". Mark

    Grit PX4 Pro Series Hockey Bag

    Howdy, Figured I'd do an initial review of this Grit PX4 Pro Series Carry Bag. This is the 32" version, with listed dimensions of 32" wide, 16" deep, and 20" height.  They also have a 28" version which is 28"/16"/16" respectively.  These are pretty standard "Pro Style" dimensions, which is the number one thing that attracted me to this bag.  I'm coming to this bag from a Pacific Rink Player bag that was 35"/18"/18" and I found the extra length annoying on the floor of a crowded locker

    Warrior Q20 wheeled equipment bag

    Warrior makes two sizes in this Q20 model, 32" and 37". I bought the 32".  Wheels roll easily.  There are two rails along the bottom to keep its shape while pulling it along. The top zipper is nice. It zips open in a U-shape pattern so you get full access compared to a bag that zips open down the middle. There are two main straps that are sturdy.  There's a hook-and-loop closing handle at the top. There's a side pull hand strap on the side of the bag. No problems.
