  1. Thanks for the replies, I thought about finding a place that does 3d scans and sending it over likes that.
  2. I've been following this thread since day 1 and have seen lots of happy customers and lots of questions and answers. I'm interesting in buying a pair of custom VH but obviously worried they won't fit since I've never tried a pair on first. Has anyone ordered and the size was off or didn't fit how you liked? Did you send them back for adjustments or did VH make you a new pair? I see jzp22222 has a similar issue as to what I'm trying to avoid.
  3. I went skate shoping this week and while I had the skates on, I noticed there was so much more rooming my toe box. I was trying to figure out why they felt so weird and then I realized I didn't have the inserts in them! I've been in these for a month and I've skated close to 55-60 hours in the month of August. I will never not use these in my skates, I don't know how I ever got by without them. Highly highly recommend this product especially for a better heel lock, comfort and less stress on your knee muscles.
  4. Ive been using the thicker inserts in my NXGs for the past 10 days, skated approximately 30 hours. My top 2 comments are that they definitely help really lock the heel in and since I skate so much at hockey clinics, the inserts really reduce the stress on my knees by my toes not lifting, the muscles aren't activated in the leg. I would definitely recommend these to my fellow members on here and MikeBoyarchuk has been great to chat with!
  5. If you wanted to start your own "Rubo Stick" company, I'm pretty sure you dont have to send anything to the NHL as long as your stick has no branding. If you're good friends with Player X and he likes your product, the equipment manager can put in the order. Unless it has changed, it costs $150k to have your logo on your piece of equipment per piece of gear in the NHL. I.E Warrior had logoless G2's in the NHL and the AHL 2 season ago, VH never had logos when Byfuglien started using their skates. Scott Van Horne even says he called up the equipment manager to see if Byfuglien can try his skates, he checked it and here we are 2.5 years later.
  6. The warrior pro factory closed October 2014, there are some made in canada gloves still floating around but everything has been made overseas since late 2014.
  7. Ask the league for an email list and send out a friendly email to all the players with info about your team.
  8. The last 2 years I've played are really what beer league is all about. Sure we discuss our games after but usually that lasts 5-15 minutes. A lot of the boys stay to drink and shoot the breeze. We even hang out outside if hockey, we've gone for drinks, post game meals among other things. Beer league is all about having fun, winning is secondary.
  9. Long time graf user Carey Price has switched to VH. No pics but in all the video of his skating in a tracksuit in Montreal shows this.
  10. Call me crazy but I really dont think Therrien's job is in trouble. He is in the first year of a 5 year deal and no GM in the last 10 years has addressed montreal's issue of not being able to score 5 on 5! Good on Bergevin for protecting his team today, we all know how hard it is to make trades. It might SUCK but they really need to stick to the process and build for the future.
  11. Pat used to work at the Warrior factory in Montreal. He was part of the glove production and was in charge of making any custom modification any pro player wanted. His and another former employee Ken opened up their own shop this past summer.
  12. I'm 5'10, 170 and I wear a large with the top part of the belly pad cut off. If I had to do it again I would've gone with a medium.
  13. If you're 5'6, 150 I definitely dont think you should be using a stick that when cut is over 100 flex. I'm 5"10/165 and ive been using 82 flex the last couple years. Why dont you try and 82 flex, if not go back to 77?
