  1. Damn youre the real O.G. here. You really bought it as soon as it came out. As you said, the machine still looks, feels and runs like brand new even after a decade of use. The only difference is that we are more skilled sharpeners now.
  2. wow...2022.. im 12 years strong on my Blackstone X02.. still loving it since 2010
  3. i was thinking of buying these...but the comments here are not encouraging. Anybody likes them a lot compared to Vapors of the past couple years?
  4. Anybody had any chance of trying to sharpen the new Ls5 blades with the X02 using the usual ruby and orange wheels? Its similar to the carbon based blackedge blade that i tried to sharpen a couple years ago but for some reason it wouldnt hold its edge more than 1 game. Maybe its because i mostly play outdoors and maybe carbon doesnt hold that kind of surface
  5. i do that too.. all my sticks have a 1inch 1/4 wood plug. ive been doing that for 3 years or so. i discovered it by chance....i just realized that the sticks i was playing with were too short for me so i put an inch wood plug into one to try a longer length but expecting a worse feeling stick, but i was astonished at how much better feeling the puck felt. it probably reduces vibrations or something, not sure exactly what it is but wow, it feels so much better. Dont go with the composite extensions, wood is the way to go. Back in the days, Easton was selling their top synergies with wood plugs, but they stopped doing it i dont know when. i bought a bunch of prostock sticks recently, and a lot of them had a 3 inch wood extension coming with them. never went back to leaving sticks with just the little plastic cap.
  6. i tried super hard to stop making those but manufacturers pricing keeps reaching new highs
  7. god damn.......is there gonna be an end to this? the most expensive stick i ever saw was the S19 at $319 a couple years ago. the first stick to rock my conscience price wise was the $200 original synergy (kinda worth it when you think about it in hindsight). and the $300 orange sicore... but now this is getting ridiculous...common CCM. you do make the best sticks on the market right now but please... thats $379 after taxes
  8. 320 per stick? sounds good, count me in for a couple dozens, im gonna do a second mortgage on my house
  9. only Lil Wayne and Bill Gates can afford top end hockey sticks nowadays
  10. im a huge easton lover....not a huge fan or their most recent sticks though. i think their best sticks were made during the SE16 days ..........and this GX looks a lot like it has those checkered bauer blades...... i want easton to remain independent of thought from Bauer. seems like they have the 1N for Nexus, 1S for supreme, 1X for Vapor...and now 1E for Easton
  11. why do you use better skates for officiating than for playing lol?
  12. you have to go in rehab...its not right to spend 3 hours + on a single knob job. get some help
  13. i just want to say that in the end Blackstone was very nice to me in the way that they handled my situation...very professional. Thanks!
  14. ruby is for stainless steel, pink is for goalies or figure skates, orange is all around
