    MSH 15th Anniversary

    As we are in our 15th year of existence (3/20 being the official date), we will be using this logo to commemorate it: It will also be featured on SummerJam and Winterfest jerseys on a patch, and we'll also have a t-shirt. Absolutely crazy that we've been around so long.  Thanks goes to everyone who has helped us out along the way.

  • Bauer Fit 3 vs Nexus Fit

    Has anyone had a chance to compare the new Bauer fit 3 versus a Nexus fit? Or does anyone know how different the fit 3 is versus the Nexus? I'm trying to figure out if the fit 3 has a narrower heel than the Nexus fit from previous. No around here has a fit 3 in my size. Also, how much less stiffer are the intermediate versions compared to their senior counter parts?

    Attention ex Drury users!

    Hi Guys, I am having a hard time finding right handed Drury's 80-85 flex and I am considering switching over to something more readily available. I have been using the Drury for years. Has anyone had any luck transitioning to another curve. I just bought a Trigger 2 p28 to try out. Any guidance would be helpful.   Thanks,   Riggs

    Skates that are too long

    Is there anything wrong with using inline skates that are too long by 15-20 mm? Assume the forefoot width is perfect and a good heel lock. I’m looking at Reign hockey skates which fit somewhat narrow, and my feet are a bit wider than average.  In the case of ice skates it’s a bad idea, as the blade centre will be too far forward.  I once had oversized ice skates and kept falling backwards. The Reign frame can be moved forwards/backwards to some extent which might mitigate the balance offset

    Looking for P28 type curve that's a bit more closed

    I've been playing with the P28 recently and I love it a lot especially when in tight. Farther out, however, it's harder to be accurate with it (I know it comes from training, but my stick broke anyways). So I was wondering if there was a curve similar to the P28 in length and toe, but is not as open? I quite enjoy the pocket but it's way too open for far shots. I've used a P14 before but I found it too short and the toe was too square. Currently looking at the P46 but other sugg

  • Moving between ProSharp Profiles

    Hello, I’ve been relatively happy with my Quad 0.5 profile on my True skates, but I’m always game to experiment with a different profile on my 2nd set of runners.  I was near a well known shop in Surrey, BC that has a prosharp, and I knew they perform the profile while you wait.  I decided I’d like to try the Zuperior M based on the positive feedback on this forum. I spoke to the person at the profile station, and he had concerns that pitch adjustments from my existing profile would im

    Profile: Detroit 1 Steel: Marsblade on Mako Skate Hollow: FBV 90/75 About me: In my 60's and have played since high school. Good skater playing 3 to 4 drop-ins per week during the the winter months only. Baseline: "Similar" to Quad Zero NOT from ProSharp. Did nothing particularly well and later found out there were some issues with the blend from profile to toe. I should also note that the Marsblade is a different animal and is best at techniques that power through the heel.

    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

    Hi everyone, 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

    So two years ago I was coming off an almost 10 tear spell where I didn’t play much, just coached.  So once I started up again I found I needed to replace some gear.  These were replacing an old pair of Vapor elbows that really wouldn’t stop sliding down.  I am 6’3”, 180 lbs so on the thin side, was looking for an elbow that would be fairly low profile and would stay in place.  I play mainly regular invite-only games so while the games have a good pace, you don’t have to worry about getting hacke
