  1. How would you describe the difference in fit?

Sure is refreshing to wear equipment that fits and protects me better. Helmet is next. Skates... Call me crazy, but you'll have to pry the Pure Fly's from my cold dead hands.
  7. For the benefit of the thread, was there a particular drill that pushed you over the crest? On a bicycle, a rider tends coast with the same foot forward on the cranks. Just like a skateboarder has his/her natural orientation on their board, and a hockey player their handedness. By your profile picture I am guessing you play hockey right-handed. I would suggest that you pay attention to the direction of your upper-body (direction of chest & stick) First, for the quick turns to the right your stick is already on that side... so balance and support are easily had by leaning hard into the stick. Sharp turns to the left you (ideally) want to bring your stick across your body by extending your right arm fully, angling it across your body, leading the blade into the turn. You can further exaggerate the angle of the stick into the turn by moving your left hand with the butt of the stick into the center of your chest or further toward your right armpit. You will find yourself more agile involving your whole body in the turn. My advice for crossovers is nearly the same, commit to the turn with your whole body. For a right-handed player making a right turn while crossing over, try not to lead with your right shoulder so much. This puts your back to the center of the turning radius and your upper body will resist the change of direction. Instead, turn your upper body so your shoulders are perpendicular to direction of travel. The center of your chest should be facing the direction of your skating path. These types of turns aren't as tight so nearly none of the support from your stick is needed. Which means your can position it in front of you for a pass. Same idea as above applies; right arm fully extended and angled across the body, left hand high and tight to the chest or right armpit area. A good drill for crossovers: put your gloves down on the ice about 12ft apart. Start at one glove and travel laterally to the other while crossing over, then back, crossing over with the other foot. The crossover motion will feel very exaggerated but that is the idea of the drill. Adjust distance as necessary. If I made this response too lengthy or dumbed-down then my fault, didn't mean to offend anyone~
  8. For drills, the simple figure-8 will allow you to actively compare your crossovers turning both directions. If you are satisfied with your left turning, pay attention to your actions and motions during those turns, and apply that heading in to the right handed turn... I usually start with two face-off circles and tighten the 8 up from there. Also, are you right-handed or left?
  9. I put a big X on one side with a silver Sharpie. As others have said, just leave with the same amount you brought.
