  1. I loved my A5.2 SBP. Unfortunately, after my first one I had a really hard time finding another TC2-5 95 flex. I never did so I went with a Nexus 1N and it has been awesome. Also, I had a lot of chipping with my 5.2 in the hosel area. I wonder if True beefed up the outer carbon layers to be more durable?
  2. I’m getting a strong late 90’s boy band vibe here and I don’t like it.
  3. You can go custom from Bauer. Start with the 1S, change the tendon, lacing system, liner, tongue, etc.
  4. Not sure. I would assume that it would be on par with the X900 and not the N9000. I was really excited when the N9000 came out especially at the $600 price point. Then I saw there was no comfort edge and they went with the TPR outsole rather than carbon. I was let down.
  5. Same here. I’m actually thinking Of buying the S190 once they go on sale as the 2S (not the top of the line 2S Pro) gets rid of the comfort edge, which I like. Then again, after seeing the price list on the new Supreme line I get why they did away with it.
  6. Those of you that have the current Supreme or previous Vapor skates, what are your opinions of the Ti Curve material? I noticed that Bauer moved away for that on the new 1X and have heard that it’s not on the unreleased Supreme line. Was this an experiment gone wrong by Bauer and do find any premature breakdown either in the material itself or the graphic treatments verses other generations that haven’t used the Ti curve? Thanks!
  7. Check Ice Warehouse and Hockey Monkey. I remember seeing them on their websites
  8. The Bauer Nexus 7000 might be an option for you. Protective without being over the top. Inexpensive too. I can wear a L or a fitted Medium in these verses a L or XL in the Tacks. Also, the Warrior QX 4 pads fit me pretty well.
  9. I have big calves as well and have used the Nexus 4000 shins and currently in the Vapor X80’s. I found that the mid to lower end models have a little less cushy padding which helps with the fit for people like me while still offereing pleanty of protection. You might want to look at the Sherwood 5030 HOF or Traditional shins as well. I’ve never tried them but they look like they would fit a wider leg.
  10. I’ve decided to go the customer route and order a pair of VH skates. I’ve historically worn a 8ee supreme with the 272 steel. Last summer I opted for Blacksteel and it is was by far the best decision I made as far as replacement steel goes. As such, I want to keep in that steel moving forward As far as my VH skates go, I am opting to just get the boots and add edge holders. When I was last in my LHS I hopped on the Bauer scan machine and it put me in a size 7.5. That said, the steel and holder are then a 263 vs the 272 that I have skated forever. my question is this, will I notice it going to a 263 from a 272 steel with a half size smaller boot and (assuming VH puts me in a 7.5) could I still use a 272 holder / steel? What are any potential drawbacks / benefits of one size over the other in terms of feel or performance?
  11. I play in the morning on Sunday's. Usually a bowl of oatmeal, a banana, one cup of coffee, and a string cheese. On my way to the rink, 3 Advil, a sugar free Redbull, and water. Then follow up with a beer or two after game or at home in the shower.
  12. Man, have I gotten behind on what’s new.
  13. Just saw that True, via Facebook posted a small teaser pic of the new A series blade for the next gen A series. Looking forward to March 2018 to try it out! My A5.2 SBP finally gave out on me. Will have to stick with the 1N for now!
  14. So I tried out the fancy new Bauer fit display and I must say I was impressed with the recommendations. Currently in a 8ee Supreme 190; Bauer recommends a Nexus 7.5 D. I tried on a 1N and really liked the fit, although the heel felt a little wide but I’d imagine that with baking that would shrink in? Anyway, i can make it another season with my 190’s but if the next gen Nexus is coming I should be able to score a 1N or N9000 on sale. That said, is Nexus on the same release timeframe as Supreme? I’ve seen the new 2N (meh!) but not sure if Bauer is working on 2 lines at the same time or if It’s another year before Nexus?
