  1. Update: I just swapped out the guts from my white helmet into my black helmet. If you unscrew the forehead screws, temple screws and the back screws where you buckle your cage it all can come out. Anybody else who might face this problem this is how you can deal with it or maybe attempt to switch out things you may want to switch. Also a useful feature if you want to change insert colors.
  2. Ahahaha yeah the rust has gotten pretty bad which is funny because I just recently started not caring so much about it and the trouble is getting to that piece because its embedded into the reakt's epp foam... i dont know how to get it and dont know how to get a new one in that spot
  3. So whenever I play i wear a cage, not wearing one is not an option for me. well the part where I screw the top of my cage into is damaged and i'm not able to screw into it as well as it doesnt have a sturdy foundation(it spins freely and moves loosely). I was wondering if there is any way i can replace this piece or if i can send it to anyone to get it fixed. It is out of warranty so that isnt an option. if there's anyway with the re akt to switch shells i could maybe do that as i have a perfectly fine white re akt 100 but my travel team requires a black helmet. Any help would be great, i don't want such a small malfunction ruin such an expensive/quality helmet.
  4. So I've recently started playing competitive roller hockey(AIHL/PIHA, etc.) and typically in mens league I usually could always skate faster or hustle more to loose pucks, obviously I can do other things but that's what really set me apart. Well now in the competitive leagues, everyone can really do everything. Everybody is fast, everybody can hustle, everybody can shoot etc. Well..I'm a smaller guy at about 5'6" and while I am starting to go to the gym to put on some mass and get stronger, what are some things I can do to maybe improve my footwork/skating? I watch my organizations elite division team and it seems like thats what puts them head and shoulders above everyone else, not necessarily stick handling, but their feet. I figure I might not be able to burn everybody, and there will be times I get out muscled but as I'm learning more about the game, what can I do to practice fakes(or make them more effective) or what are things I can practice being more balanced and tougher to knock over? I'm sort stealing Kobe Bryant's idea of using his footwork and fakes to make him that much tougher to defend even when he might physically be out matched so I figure I can apply that here right? I mainly want tips for selling fakes better and workouts I can do without skates to make my feet quicker and make me more balanced.
  5. if these had a black hi lo mag chassis.... they would be soooo sick
  6. Will the Visium also be a wider skate or some fit as before? Also not that I care because I absolutely love my shift+'s but whats the motive to put out a new skate line a year later thats slightly wider and not change anything else? It's killing me cause this new line look SO GOOD but i cant justify buying it completely
  7. Sooooo...hoping this RPE line still is coming out..
  8. This makes me think I should start stocking up on my shift+'s.........alkali better not be going anywhere
  9. No problem bro, and Vet88 pretty much took the words out of my mouth. Just remember any time you go alkali, just bake em. A lot of people go the route of "breaking em in old school" but its what this skate prides itself on. Its like getting a car and cutting out the floor and using your feet to push it around cause thats what the Flintstones did. I feel like the main difference between the two skates(other than color) really is just the chassis and wheels. I'm sure Justin or somebody will correct me on that if I'm wrong.
  10. I think this brand prides itself on the baking aspect so I think you missed out on a big part of why their skates are so great. Is that spot rubbing on the L bars? Is it possible at all that they are sized poorly? I had this issue when breaking them in on the outsides of my feet after baking them but it went away in a very timely manner.
  11. call me late to the game here but what happened to RR?????
  12. They better keep it very similar to what it is now or else I'll need you to start up another company aha. Seriously though they better not downgrade cause of this because I finally found a skate company I am all about.
  13. Everyone making remarks about fit and what not, I think we all had that thought run through our head when we clicked on the post. But just take the post for what its worth lol. Strictly looks, I think the Re Akt 100 or bauer 4500 with a white ccm fm 580 is the best looking. Also, CCM vector helmets always looked really nice to me. I didn't fit CCM helmets so I never wore them but I can still be objective and say its aesthetically pleasing.
