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!

First post here.
So long story short. Used to play 2-3 times a week when I was 6 years old until maybe 14-15YO. Then stopped hockey when I discovered girls existed.
Now in my mid 30s. Back to play 3 years ago in a beer league with some 4K Reebok skates. 280mm runners. Skated very well with them but not comfy enough.
Decided to buy new skates.
So bought CCM Ribcor with Step blacksteel. Super comfy but damm I feel like I skate like sh*t with the
Might be a strange question, but I am curious if the inner padding on these new higher end skates are durable. The reason I ask is bc the inside portion of both of my heels absolutely destroy materials / padding and most all my athletic shoes. I also have a little bone bump on the back of each heel that will also slowly wear holes on the inner padding of the heel pocket of my shoes as well.
My current skates are Graf Ultra G75's and I believe they have the clarino leather inner material.
Hi Everyone, was just having a discussion on Indoor wheels the last couple of weeks and there is a lot on the market out there. Many wheels will suit different types of skaters depending on their size/weight etc, and with prices going up i just wanted to get a gauge on what your go to wheels are out there. Addictions seem to be king but Konixx doesn't seem that far behind now. Have most of the top ends listed but let me know if i've missed any. Would be great to get your vote, Feel free to
For those interested in the Hyperlite, carbonlite runner have a little mid term review. A lot of people were concerned with the carbon lite runners durability long term and after having them for only 2 months the carbon broke so durability is in question. I think the concern was valid.
Short story, full speed into the boards, tried to stop, had no runner last second just fell out, the carbon "nibs" that lock up into the skate broke off so it just slips right out of the holders. Im feeling
Pretty excited as I really like the flex profile of this line, but nothing fits my foot like AS3 Pros.
My basic history is that I have two replacement hips as of 6/2018. I skate 4-6x week playing and coaching, so I rotate skates. Currently AS3 Pros and 2xPros (fit2). I started with AS1, added 2xPros (before there was a fit choice), added 80k's. Sold the 2xPros and 80ks when I tried the AS3 Pro...that was perfect. I ended up missing being able to rotate so...2xPros again. Anyway...the 80k'
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.
Profile - Quad 1
Steel – Step 272
Hollow – 3/4"
Skates - CCM Super Tacks size 8 with Superfeet Carbon pro hockey inserts.
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
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
Unfortunately due to low returns on data from end users, the Prosharp Project is being shut down. The AS2001 is being packed up and sent back to Prosharp.
I really felt that it would go over well and provide end users an opportunity to try different profiles at virtually zero cost to them, but a lot of them abused the generosity and work behind it. Situations like this only hurt what we're trying to accomplish here - having a community with opinions and experiences and being able to coll
Tried out a Zup S. My regular steel is a Quad 0.
These are night and day different. I did not like Zup S whatsoever. Zero mobility. Looking at how the various radii, I suspect a Zup XS might be closer in similarity to a Quad 0, but I probably won't try it as I can already tell I'm not going to like it more than the Quad.
Bauer 2X Pro Shoulder Pad Review
Background: I am a D or E level player who is lucky enough to play in a C division so I can be embarrassed by better players. I play forward on the C team and I also play defense on an E team. I have been playing for 20 years having started on ice at 34. I have coached up to the JV and Varsity level and have my level 4 USA Hockey coaching card.
Previous Equipment: I don’t want to go back too far but for the last 4 years or so I have b
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.
I received the Surgeon RX3 stick as a freebie from STX last April and decided on writing a review on this stick after a year of use. However, with the lock down along with the arena I normally play at being renovated I won’t be back on the ice until mid August or early September, so I’ve decided to write a review of the stick now because I feel as though it will start getting me back into things during the Summer.

I've been playing hockey since I was 7 with roller and started ice when I was 11. I've played as high as midget AAA but was a career AA player at best, along with high school varsity hockey in New Jersey. I've used many sticks throughout my time on the ice. To give you an idea of what I have to compare the Nexus ADV to, I've used:
Nike Bauer Vapor XXX Lite
TPS Response R8
RBK 7K SicKick
PERFORMANCE: Excellent. Provides excellent grip on the stick blade to the puck. Keeps ice shavings off. It makes a difference. If I forget to put it on and I've played about two games, I can feel less grip on the puck, and feels like I have no tape on my stick. I play in senior men's league hockey so the ice shavings build up on the ice in the second to third periods. That all gets on the bottom edge of your blade as you skate around if you don't have stick wax. EASE OF USE: It is a puck-shaped
This is my first try for a product review, so if you have questions, or parts of the review are not clear, do not hesitate. I hope this can be of value for our members or to internet visitors that end up here.
A little bit of context about the reviewer:
I play 2 to 4 times a week in low level competitive leagues (during the main season, I play once a week during the summer), mainly as a D-man but also play as a forward. As for shin guards here is a list of the models
