    On March 20, 2004, we opened our doors to the public for the first time.  It's absolutely crazy to think that we'd still be here 20 years later! Thank you for all who have contributed to MSH's success!

    Millionth post on MSH!

    Over the past few months, we had been watching the post count to determine when the millionth post would be posted on MSH.  After running queries against the server (we really don't delete  posts; we will hide from view) and so we wanted to make sure that the post we would find would be the one that actually changed the post count to 1,000,000.  That post was this one:  https://modsquadhockey.com/forums/topic/72472-girdle-shell-alterations/?do=findComment&comment=1125215 What's even bet

    bauer nexus 8000 shin guards placement vs.CCM Tacks vs. Bauer Supreme

    I currently have bauer nexus 8000 shin guards that are nearing the end of their life.  what would be the closest Shin available now to replace the nexus 8000 but not as bulky?  I'm not looking for a bulky shin guard but also not looking for a super skinny either.  I think the Nexus ones make my legs look like tanks.  How are the CCM AS-V shins?

    Injection eyelets vs traditional

    Has anyone been a long time Bauer Supreme skates guy and have to go from the injection eyelets (MX3s, 1S, 2S pros) back to the traditional with Ultrasonics and Machs? Is there a big difference in feel/performance going back to the traditional eyelets?  I'm afraid the boot will feel too different with different eyelets and the lateral boot stiffness won't feel the same anymore on the ice. I'm hesitant to go to the Vapors because of the slight differences in boot construction vs the Supr

    How to specify the heel/toe shape of skate blades?

    The toe is used for quick starts, and the heel is used when making deep turns, and so the shape of the heel and toe presumably would affect these critical parts of hockey. But how does one even go about specifying the shape of the heel and toe? You would think this would be part of profiling, but profiling only affects the middle ~60% of the blade: https://wissota.com/skate-blade-profile-rocker-explained/. As seen in the picture of that link, the heel and toe in a stock blade deviate signif

  • Adjusting pivot point back to neutral

    I've seen several posts regarding adjusting the pivot point on the AS2001 to compensate for pitched profiles if refreshing a profile.  What happens if you want to adjust the pivot point back to neutral? Would there not also need to be an adjustment that needs to be made if returning the runner to a neutral pivot point?

    Liking Quad 2 but looking for some tweaks

    So some of you maybe saw my recent skate fitment journey.  Had my new Vapor skates profiled with quad 2, 11/16 roh, just like my previous Ribcors overall I like this profile but I’d like maybe a little more grip/bite/explosion and more agility (had difficulties to initiate quick turns tonight).  i don’t mind losing some glide since I find quad 2 has plenty of it. Quad 2 feel light and smooth but id like maybe a tiny more heavy feeling.  should I stay with quad 2 and focus more on s

    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,

    I have worn a bunch of True skates in the past, and these ones have been my favourite so far and by far the best for durability. Very impressed with these once I dialed in the fit.

    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

    Bauer Re-Akt 200

    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

    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.
