  1. STX RX3 elbow pads. In my opinion extremely low profile. The sleeve turns some people off but I personally love it. Keeps them in place.
  2. I have been looking everywhere for a definitive answer but cant find one. What is the difference between the HP30, 31 and 32?
  3. Great......I'm sure there will be plenty on eBay for $600+.
  4. Yes, what I'm looking to cover up is an embroidered name. I tried a red paint pen but it just turned it more of a pink color. I did just find a paint marker made for fabric so I'll give that a shot.
  5. Title says it all. What to best way you found to cover/hide player names on Pro Gloves?
  6. Has anyone tried the RX3 pants yet? In the market for new pants and these caught my eye.
  7. Do the Surgeon RX3 gloves still run small like the previous 500s?
  8. I'm looking at getting a new pair of custom coverts and I noticed the Covert Pro Plus which has the new NHL foam. Has anyone tried these? Are they heavier or bulkier then the standard Covert Pros with the Phantom Foam Protection? Will I notice a huge difference?
  9. Do the 70ks still "upsize" the holder as compared to the Super Tacks/FT1s? I wear 7.5Ds. In Super Tacks/FT1s the runner size is 263 while my 50ks have 272.
  10. I have been looking for them myself. That was the only site I found that carries them so far but unfortunately for me they do not ship to the states....
  11. Any recommended shops in New Jersey for doing a holder swap? Its a simple same size SpeedBlade to Edge swap but I rather not have some kid home on summer break doing it.
  12. Has anyone tried to remove the heat transferred (I think its that) name off the cuff of a glove? Any suggestions?
  13. I have both and they are both great. I've had both of the Mammoth IPA and IPA 2.0s and they are bomb proof. I think they will literally last forever. The compartments and skate holders on the Pacific Rink bag are fantastic, none of the little tiny thing's ever get lost in the bag. The only down side to the Pacific Rink bag is that the buttons on the strap handle always come undone when I lift up the bag. Its a small little issue but an issue none the less. With that being said I would lean toward the IPA 2.0. Its the second iteration of the bag so they had a change to work all of those little issues out.
  14. I can get a pair of APX 2 skates for a steal but reading about fit differences between the x100 and the APX2 concern me a little. I have x100s that fit me perfect but I read that APX2s fit a little tighter in the toe box. Would I run into fit issues if I bought APX2s in the same size?
  15. Just so I'm 100% these are sized to shoe size correct? My CCM Ribcore skate size is 7.5 but my shoe size is 9.5. I should get size "E" 9.5 to 11?
  16. I'm running into a skate issue because my feet are noticeably different widths but with similar lengths. Right now I'm wearing vapors in 7.5D. My left skates fits perfect, I can lace it up with zero fuss and it feels secure. My right foot is another story. I can never get my right skate to feel secure. Just never feels locked in with noticeable heel movement even when I crank down on the laces till my foot goes numb. I've always been messing with the lengths of my skates but never put much thought into the width. After doing some measuring I figured out my right foot would be better off in a C width then D. My question is besides going custom are there any retail skates that when molded could make up for this width issue? Thanks in advance.
  17. Now that these elbow pads are made in China is the sizing the same as it used to be? I usually wear medium elbow pads but had to size down in 7ks to small. Do the 19ks still run huge?
  18. If you are ordering from Ice Warehouse and wear a half size order a size up. (If you wear 7.5 order 8.) The sizing info on the site is wrong. They say size 7 fits 7 up to 7.5. In reality 7 fits 7 and you can trim it down to fit 6.5.
  19. How's sizing on these? I'm on eternal quest to find gloves that fit to my liking. I'm always stuck in between 13s and 14s. Right now the Surgeon 500s in 14s seem to be the right fit but I am very interested in trying the QRLs.
  20. I agree. The fact that they are black and not designed to look like a skittles bag is what has me thinking about them.
  21. I actually was thinking about picking those up. What do you mean by "much more elegant"?
  22. How do you prefer measuring your glove size? Do you measure from bottom of you middle finger to your elbow crease or do you measure from the tip of your middle finger to the bottom of your hand then times it by two? If I use the first method I get a little over 13.5" but if I use the second method I get a little over 14". I must have long fingers.
