  1. I’m using the warrior backpack. My mix bag also had issues but mainly with the cheap ass zipper system, but I had low expectations for it to begin with and feel it’s still worth the 60 as my roller hockey bag where it will get much less abuse. the warrior backpack is much better in terms of build quality, if only it had a water bottle and one more miscellaneous storage pouch
  2. Still at about a goal per game with them, so working pretty well outside of breakages The durability on the hydrogen doesn’t seem the best, but I like how it shoots. Don’t like my pro plus that much in the limited time I’ve tried it but still going to work out the low and mid kick ones. I used my PXL today, scored on my first shot with it, seems to perform nice, and more durable. It may end up being my favorite of their offerings, just wish I could get it in different graphics
  3. I’ve printed a few knobs for sticks, mostly out of photopolymers when I was working in that field, wish I’d printed a few in powderbed. im assuming you’d be looking to get a filament machine, and depending on how capable it is, I think you’d have better results for the knobs with something like PETG or ABS over PLA, as it would be more durable for the application. Another thing I would be concerned with when it comes to PLA is weak layer to layer adhesion, especially with what I am assuming your design would look like with several unsupported layers in overhang.
  4. both legit and ive ordered from both and been satisfied, albeit the prostockhockeysticks can have long delays from order to receipt depending on the level of custom.
  5. I agree. For someone like me where it’s hard to find a helmet that fits well it’s a great, be it expensive option. Curious as to about how many helmets worth you can nest in one build ( fully aware the variety of build volumes different machines have)
  6. 550 actually seems reasonable considering all the cost, labor, and process that goes into SLS printing.
  7. so as someone that works in 3D printing, i am pretty intrigued by the bauer helmet. I have two of the Tacks X, and will soon fit for a custom, and while I love them, i do see what I think is a potential problem with the Carbon Nest photopolymer, in that it with heat and moisture, it seems to weaken the lattice, and has swollen some areas of my liner where sweat accumulates during play, suggesting to me that it has potentially an issue with sweat/heat. Their TDS for materials suggest that distilled water itself causes low weight gain under submersion, but i dont see any tensile or impact testing after submersion, and they are probably not heating the water bath either. have you done any testing to see if the "digital foam" is similarly affected by moisture, humidity, and the general environment of being placed against a sweaty head for hours upon hours?
  8. I use the mission core girdles for roller hockey. They are nice, but if you weren’t looking for the protective aspects honestly just go with the cheaper tour girdle. as far as pants go, I have used the labeda ones for a while, but if you want a more traditional fit, I think pants are trending that way again, so maybe something a bit more modern would be a fit there
  9. I guess I’m lucky in that contacts were always super easy for me with no real learning curve, but it was also my only option to keep playing after I broke the safety rec spec style glasses that I was using for a bit while playing, slicing my nose a bit.
  10. Yeah, cities where hockey is more prevalent I haven’t had any issues. I did fly into Orlando with my gear one time, and on the way back, the spirit agent seemed clueless as to the gear policy but I was able to provide my printout of the policy and it ended up being ok
  11. I’ve flown to several of the SJ events. Never had an issue with bag weights, but if your gear is over 50lbs you probably need to invest in some new stuff. typically when I fly especially for a laid back event such as SJ, I pack my cheaper/backup gear when possible, you can also save some weight by not packing jerseys and socks, and as far as clothing, just pack some shorts and shirts and lighter things if you’re going to put it in your equipment bag, it is summer! I haven’t had any issues with equipment getting damaged or anything like that. One additional word of advice, print out the policy, and even though they have usually said to tape together your sticks, I’ve always just brought mine in a stick bag and never had them give me an issue
  12. Got a couple of SLS listings I thought i would pop on here to see if there’s any interest. Let me know and i can take off SLS and sell direct! https://sidelineswap.com/gear/hockey/sticks/6662287-pro-used-right-handed-stock-hockey-stick-13-curve https://sidelineswap.com/gear/hockey/gloves/6523605-warrior-new-14-alpha-pro-gloves
  13. I had good luck with my first hoapa stick but have broken several now in the same area. They were all the same original model but it seemed like something changed in the construction at some point . I’ve only really liked them for roller hockey but tempted to try some of their new models to see if they could be good for ice
  14. My favorite wax is glo sauce but I think it’s no longer in production and I’m almost out. I feel your experience was similar to mine.
