  1. There are at least 3 players in the NHL that I know who are playing on blood thinners. Playing in a beer league on them where your livelihood is not at stake is another issue.
  2. Very limited quantities and essentially twice the price of what Total Hockey has them. TH was the only major retailer up until now to carry them.
  3. Prohockeylife lists the GX Sr, @ 319.99 CDN (244.75 USD) in stock
  4. Alan it stands for: too long;didn't read. I am sure it is not if you have any of the issues you wrote about.
  5. There is a reason for this happening.......... http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2016/04/05/well-duh-lytro-finally-realizes-nobody-wants-refocusable-low-res-cameras

  9. One would think the gel pads would alter the fit of the helmet. Given that everyone seems to agrees that fit is probably the single most important element in purchasing a helmet, altering your helmet size/fit would be problematic, for me at least. . The Noggin skull cap was tested using the Severity Index, which is just another name for a drop test. They claim up to "38 percent less impact" for hockey helmets, 22% for football, and 85% for baseball helmets. The test is designed, as many have pointed out, to ensure that the helmet essentially is able to prevent a skull fracture. And that's it, no more no less. I would buy a helmet that fit my head.
  10. The Cascade Lax helmet has been re-certified, Warrior as of Feb. 3 was still seeking re-certification. "Cascade Lacrosse has reached an agreement with the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) on a solution for the recently decertifiedCascade R helmet. The solution will involve a simple modification to Cascade R helmets currently in the marketplace. NOCSAE has accepted the solution. Cascade's data confirms the helmet, as modified by this solution, meets NOCSAE certification standards. For NOCSAE certification purposes, the modified helmet is treated as a new model, identified as the Cascade R-M, although it will continue to be marketed by Cascade under the Cascade R name. Moving forward all newly manufactured Cascade R-M helmets will be certified as meeting the NOCSAE standards. A tamper-resistant sticker will be placed on all modified helmets as well as on newly manufactured Cascade R-M helmets to differentiate them from non-certified Cascade R models. Model R helmets that have not been ofifcially modified by Cascade do not meet NOCSAE standards and certification will remain void. Cascade will make the modification to existing helmets at its Liverpool, N.Y. facility beginning December 16, 2014. The modification will be free of charge for consumers and retailers, including shipping. "We are extremely pleased that Cascade and NOCSAE have reached an agreement to modify existing Cascade R helmets and put helmets back in play for our loyal customers," said Tim Ellsworth, Global Business Director, Cascade Lacrosse. "We have been working closely with NOCSAE and will work diligently to ensure that all Cascade R helmets returned are modified as quickly as possible. We thank everyone for their patience and support." To fully reinstate the NOCSAE license, which was suspended in conjunction with the R model decertification, Cascade is cooperating with a review by NOCSAE of certification data for all of its models, and is having a third-party audit of Cascade's quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) processes. Cascade is currently finalizing its own internal audit and expects the third-party QA/QC audit to be completed by December 18, 2014. NOCSAE will partially reinstate Cascade's license agreement for the production of new Cascade R-M helmets upon demonstratiion of satisfactory audit results for its QA/QC processes. The license agreement will be fully restored for other Cascade models upon demonstrating that such models certified by Cascade are supported by necessary data. Cascade is also currently reviewing test results for all of its lacrosse helmets to ensure they meet both Cascade and NOCSAE standards." An fascinating read on how all this transpired and what the actual (frightening) process for certification is, can be found here: http://laxallstars.com/stx-lacrosse-helmet/
  11. It will have to be tested with no guarantee that it will achieve it's predecessor's 3 star status. One would have thought that the Krown LTE which shares many of the features of the 360 would be comparable.
  12. They were/are on clearance. Maybe Warrior will reassess and restart production to meet the demand.
  13. Remember the the 900CDN does not include Federal GST and provincial sales tax (12-15% in total,depending on the province) and shipping costs.....difference would be probably less than 75 dollars; then getting them to you.....
