  1. Too bad 2-piece sticks fell out of favor. It was so much easier to experiment with flexes and curves.
  2. Bar night. Get to know each other a little better. You might start to click on the ice if you click off the ice. At worst, it's one season, losing SUCKS, but it's still hockey...
  3. I put a cage on after the 2nd puck to my eye. I went with a titanium cage, super light, it doesn't drag my helmet down at all. Look at the Bauer Re-Akt or CCM's version (can't remember the model name/#), they are both nice.
  4. Understandable. Thanks for the quick reply!
  5. Jason, any plans for custom blades? Specifically tapered... with the overall decline in the 2-piece category, it's impossible to find blades that I like anymore.
  6. Probably is from a training/rookie camp... as far as I know, they don't number their regular practice jerseys.
  7. A couple guys in my beer league have MIA/Warrior custom gloves already.
  8. It works just fine, as long as you use it properly.
  9. I measured myself, I'm right between a 5.5 and a 6. I have tried both lies (from Black Beauty) and I've had better luck with the 5.5 lie.
  10. It seems like being slightly bowlegged helps skating. Most of the guys I've played with that were the better skaters on the team were bowlegged. I, unfortunately, am not.
  11. The Legend stuff is BEAUTIFUL. The elbow pads fit great, are light, yet still offer good protection. The shoulders are a little bit thick for my taste (I wear some 1980s Coopers, they're paper thin) but I think they'll soften up with a washing or two as well as some use. The gloves... oh, the gloves! Pigskin, thin leather palm (I think they're supposed to come with a 2nd palm, like the Vapor XXX), split fingers, leather gussets, lace in the cuff, plastic inserts... extremely comfortable right out of the bag, and should be reasonably priced. I have yet to see the pants, but my brother (prenny207, a DR rep) said they're very nice, look like they're from the 1970s, but are quite protective. I'll probably end up wearing the whole series.
  12. I gotta say, I love the catalog layout... the color-coded schematics REALLY help you understand what each feature is and where it's located. Even a rookie pro shop employee will sound like an experienced vet when talking about RBK/Reebok equipment... and the equipment looks very good too!
  13. Well, my LHS in Timbuktu got their shipment in last week. I bought one of everything!
  14. -Helmet... Itech HC95. Very comfortable, good look, great fit. -Cage... Itech 909 RBE IX. This one never hit the market, it didn't get HECC certified. A real shame, because in today's "light, light, light" market mentality, this cage would be TOPS. It's all titanium, about 40% to 50% of the weight of a traditional steel cage. Grey titanium finish (like a Bauer TruVision). The only drawback is that it's the same shape as the Itech 907 cage, the rounded one. -Shoulders... Cooper SB90. From the 80s, the just-add-water variety. Virtually no padding, except for the exposed-plastic shoulder caps and some bicep protection. Otherwise, they're lightweight, very low-density foam. -Elbows... Vic Gold 105. Again, ancient by today's standards. Light, fairly small, traditional donut-style elbow with small slashguards. They're falling apart though, likely to be replaced by Sherwood 5030s or CCM 852s. -Gloves... Winnwell BDP. They weren't on the market for a year before Winnwell went tits-up. A shame, because these gloves are awesome. Eagle-like mobility, wide open cuff, good nash palm, higher density foam, and plastic inserts. -Pants... Hespeler Pro Lite. Great pants, solid protection with good mobility. High denier nylon, not going to rip and fray so easily. Thigh zippers are a big plus. -Shins... Itech Techlite 855. 1999 model. Anatomic design, CoolMax liner, good calf wraparounds. I cut off the straps and I use Itech's "ITape" neoprene shin straps. They're GREAT. Hold the pads perfectly in place. -Skates... Flite Summit. An older model, circa 1996. They're close to the old Bauer 3000s in quality. They've held up pretty well, but I missed 2 years with injuries and used a pair of pro CCM 952s for a couple years, and I'm not all that hard on my skates. The Flites have been a pleasant surprise, I had to order them when Bauer was out of stock in EVERY SKATE in my size back in '96. I mounted Tuuks on them and have had very few problems, other than having to stretch the length and width a couple times. -Undergarments... either a Protex PTX or Augusta Sportswear CoolMax t-shirt and an Itech Jock Pro (the maroon one). Moisture-wicking tees are nice, I do notice a difference during and after the game. The jocks are nice too, they've always worked well for me and I like the Pro model with the sewn-in brief. -Shafts... I currently have 4. An Innovative 1100 tapered, formerly a Larionov OPS; a Mission Flyweight Ether tapered; a Louisville TriCore (non-pro radius); and an Easton Z-Bubble, green, original year model. The Bubble is my oldest shaft, and has been good to me. Like I said, it's from the first year (1997?) and has held up like a champ, but I'm not too tough on my sticks either. The TriCore is a TANK, I heard NCAA guys weren't breaking them when they first came out, and it's got great feel for a shaft. The Flyweight and the Inno are both great shafts too, I like the tapered effect and both have good feel and balance. The Inno has the slight grip on it, which I like. -Blades... various wood, straight heel curves with open toes. Closest retail patterns are old Easton Thornton and old Louisville Antropov. I've also come across a bunch of pro blades that I like too. Gotta be wood though.
