  • Skate profiling recommendation for amateur player

    Hi guys, I am skating all my life, but started ice hockey like 7 years ago to have fun with friends at the local rink and play some beer league matches.  I am 5' 10" 150 lbs 42 years. At the beginning I did not pay attention to my equipment at all but over the time I realized it matters and makes a quite significant difference on the ice, especially when it comes to skates. This season, I finally got myself a proper skates size, I got Supreme M5 Pro in 5.5 size FIT 2. My last skates were Vapor X

    Sparx Skate Sharpener - At home sharpener

    An interesting kickstarter for an at home skate sharpener. What do you guys think? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1223281555/sparx-skate-sharpener-pro-skate-sharpening-at-home?ref=video

    Bauer Sling vs CCM FT5 Pro

    Hi, I am choosing between these two sticks. I am looking for a similar flex and 92\29 curve. Here is my thinking: CCM FT5 pro is heavier, which is worse for my skinny hands. Do you think the difference between 375 and 396 grams is noticeable? Bauer Sling is mid-kick, while CCM FT5 Pro is known for great shooting qualities and hybrid kick point. Is there a significant difference between them? FT5 pro is supposedly more durable I used the ADV and FT3 pro in the past, both were

    Mach eyelets

    Anyone who's tried both the injection eyelets and traditional eyelets notice the differences in they way they make the boot feel and fit and stay tied tight? Jumping to the Machs with the traditional eyelets (from several Supreme skates in the last bunch of years with inj eyelets) I feel like they just don't feel as tight on my feet and more importantly STAY tight on my feet.  I'll try wax laces (prefer not to) but I wonder if the eyelets have an effect on fit and feel.  I'm even in a Fit 1

    Info on some vintage CCM Tacks

    Picked them up at a thrift shop for $12 CDN. Some vintage decor for a hockey themed home bar that I’ll (eventually) be building. I’m guessing 60s? But I’m sure someone could get a more definite year.   https://imgur.com/a/O8IQozI

  • Bauer’s Factory Profile

    I read the Bauer’s factory profile is set at what I am assuming is a Quad Zero due to the radio (6ft-9ft-11ft-13ft) out of the box. Pro Sharp lists this as a size 7-8 skate. Does this mean that if one has a junior size 1-2, the Bauer factory profile would be a Quad 3XS (4ft-5ft-7ft-10ft)?  I have new Step Steel Blacksteel and want to possibly profile them with a Quad 3XS for my squirt. I’d like him to skate in the profile prior and if the Bauer factory profile matches Pro Sharp’s Quad profiling,

    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

  • Bauer Re-Akt 200

    I've been wearing this helmet for the past year and have found it to be very comfortable once adjusted.i'm getting older and I wanted something that offered protection. I just happened to be run into by a player on another team who is a good 75lbs larger then me. Needless to say we both went down and I hit the back of my head pretty hard. I basically ended up with a sore neck; never felt anything to the back of my head, never lost consciousness or headache, virtually no signs of concussion. I fe

    Hey, I recognize that this post was 4.5 yrs ago, but I am in the same situation you were in then.  Got a ReAkt 200 large online, like the helmet, but am near the bottom of the adjustment range and have the same reservations you did:  moves a bit too much and bit too much room on the sides.  I'm tempted by your experience to try a medium as my head is a touch more oval than round, but don't want to get on a 'no order' list by getting and sending back yet more stuff (this has been a frustrati

    Bauer 2X Pro

    The month of January was a particularly busy month on the ice. I'm assistant coaching our 14U blue (house) team, joint coaching our 14U white (house select) team, occasionally working with another local travel 12U team, and getting calls to skate in pickup slots when numbers are low (basically on-call because I live across the street from the rink - it's as close to a heaven on earth situation). It's been about a 4 day a week ice time month with my 2X Pros. So far, lots of positive things t

    Rezztek

    I've been using Rezztek for about a month now. That includes 8ish hours of beer league/private scrimmage time, and 5ish hours of 3v3 outdoor hockey. I'll upload the pictures - some obvious scuffing, fraying, and battle scars, but the feel is the same, and I'm enjoying it. I'll probably remove what's there and replace it with new strips very soon.   I went from full heel-to-around-the-toe TJ + the dankest wax I could find to this, and it was an adjustment of about 2-3 shifts + warmups.

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
