  1. Only the Pro3 PMT is also speared, the rest are fused.
  2. A little column A, a little column B. In all seriousness, I was bummed to find out the DTC news because I was excited about the RX3 Line.
  3. They flew us out to Baltimore to shoot insight videos, we shot on-ice reviews and even RX2 vs. RX3 comparison videos but its safe to say we won't be releasing them.
  4. We had a few of these a while ago; they came with LS3's and a grip liner someone similar to the bottom portion of the 2017 1X's LockFit Pro Liner.
  5. This ^ True has a whole page on their site talking about balance point and swing weight. https://www.true-hockey.com/swing-weight/
  6. I need to update it with the 2018 sticks but type "performance" into the search bar and then sort by weight! http://blog.icewarehouse.com/hockey-stick-database/
  7. Loved my OG's and have been really happy with the AS1's. They feel even more anatomical, and I really like the extra flex the new tongue and tendon guard are providing. The footbed isn't as plush as the previous custom support insoles but they do feel more responsive. The AS1's are 20g lighter per skate and CCM aimed to improve on durability, which I can't speak to quite yet, although I never had issues with the first-gen in the first place. The graphics have really grown on me and the Super Tacks look dated when I look back at them now.
  8. Cool to see RibCor in TaylorMade now. https://thegolfnewsnet.com/ryan_ballengee/2018/01/02/taylormade-m3-m4-irons-offering-structure-ribcor-107869/
  9. I really liked the HTX and I'd say the A-Series would feel more similar than the X-Core Series. The X-Core is very dampened and the A-Series is a bit livelier and more responsive.
  10. It'd be cool if they made three skates that visually looked identical but had the different fit profiles.
  11. No, they're not, they have new gear coming out in a month or two.
  12. I agree with you and Chippa, but I think the mentality is different for people who played competitive/club hockey at a young age. This is something that probably happens across sports too. I just started playing golf and I saved the ball that I got my first birdie with.. I was then rightfully chirped by my hockey buddies about it, especially since it was just a par 3
  13. The physical process does not differ but they are now using three layers of the performance 18K carbon fiber instead of just one layer. This allowed them to lighten up the stick while making it more durable too.
  14. It's a fused one-piece that utilizes their speared shaft construction process.
  15. Not to be a stickler (pun intended) but the 1N shaft corners are more of a hybrid between the 1X & 1S. The older generations of Nexus did have the same squared corners though.
  16. His paint job is the retail AK27 SL, which is an Alpha QX Pro LE.
  17. Negatory, those were 70K skates in the factory video which were on lockdown at the time.
  18. That's the fusion point between the blade and the shaft, you'll notice some companies will lay a graphic over it instead. I'd like to see a picture of a knockoff with the continuous weave and would like to hear how they did that. That's quite interesting.
  19. A lot of companies are using 18K carbon fiber weaves like TeXtreme (STX, Sherwood, CCM) but only Bauer can use the TeXtreme brand of 18K. Check out the overall consistency of the layering especially near the fusion point in the hosel compared to the 1S. If the pattern of carbon is super straight throughout the whole stick, it could be an unpainted Bauer, but I'd still doubt it. You'll more than likely see uneven layering consistency.
  20. I am no fan of Ho-Sang's skates but they immediately reminded me of these bad boys.
  21. The Bauer Vapor XXX skates and the TPS Rubber Response stick.
  22. That is inaccurate. The Curv ankle support is exclusively in the 1X.
  23. Nothing is in the works at this moment but we do hope it continues. The work he has done for our sister company, Tennis Warehouse, is quite incredible.
  24. This is actually a double-plug since the still photos used in video are from IceWarehouse.com
