  1. I'm open to offers on any of this stuff. Would like to get rid of it without losing too much money on it. Let me know.
  2. I think you might be doing something wrong. ;)
  3. That's all great advice, thank you. when I'm in sneakers, I do stand on my inside leg only... and try not to be flatfooted. When I practice shooting, I also try not to be standing still, but i try to emulate what it's like to be on ice as much as possible. I think I'm going to be on rollerblades from now on to try and get closer to the feel, cause you're exactly right, no matter how good my shot is on the tiles at home, as soon as i hit the ice, it all falls apart.
  4. It's been a minute. I'll try polishing and see if all of a sudden I can't sauce on tiles either. haha
  5. Thanks for chiming in. I actually use a shortened stick when I'm in sneakers so that the stick is the same length relative to my height. If I'm on roller blades, I use the same stick that I use on the ice.
  6. When I'm practicing my sauce passes on my training tiles at home, I sauce like a pro. Completely smooth, the puck just floats. It starts flat, saucers through the air perfectly, and lands completely flat. I'm also getting better at putting it exactly where I want to, and also getting it pretty high in the air even if I only sauce it a few feet ahead of me. But when I get on the ice, using all the same techniques and everything, I can't get the puck to sauce anywhere close to what I can do off ice. I don't understand it and it's quite frustrating. The puck wobbles, bounces when it lands, and I usually have to "shoot" it to get any kind of decent sauce to it. Forget about short sauces, it'll flip and tumble like punted football. Do you guys have any tips or suggestions? Anybody else experience this same thing?
  7. I just got the Dangle puck as well. I've tried about 5 or 6 different "off ice pucks" to see which one is MOST like a puck on ice, and I think the Dangle puck, when used on tiles, is the closest thing to an ice hockey puck on ice.
  8. Have a few items here I'm trying to sell. All of them are brand new never used. The imgur link below has pictures of everything. https://imgur.com/a/C5lMB Set of 4 Variant Platinum 72A wheels. Two are 80mm, Two are 72mm for a hi-lo setup. These went for $15 each brand new, but you can find them for $12 each now. I'll let them go for $40 for all 4. Bones Bearing Cleaner Unit - Never used, but I can't find the instruction sheet that goes inside of it. This retails for $8-$10. I'll let it go for $6. Sonic Citrus Cleaner (for use in the Bones bearing cleaner unit) - Brand new, never used. This retails for $8-10, I'll let it go for $6. Bones Speed Cream (Racing Formula Skate Bearing Lubricant) - Brand new., never used. Retails for $6. I'll let it go for $5. A&R Lace Bite Gel Pads (pair) - These pads have velcro on the back so they attach to the skate tongue really easily. I bought these and put them in my skates and hated them. I took them out immediately. I never skated in them. They are like new. They retail for $10. I'm selling them for $7. Also selling a pair of CCM Tacks 6052 Hockey pants on ebay. here is the link. https://www.ebay.com/itm/122909982237?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649 - SOLD ON EBAY. Shipping is $7.15 USPS 2-3 day Priority mail. I accept paypal. I'd like to sell the whole lot together, but It's not a deal breaker. Let me know if you're interested or have any questions. Thanks, Joey
  9. Hey guys, quick question on the progression of the rekker series sticks from Sherwood over the years. Is this correct? 2015 - 2016 - 2017 EK15 = EK60 = EK365 EK11 = EK50 = EK345 ???? = EK40 = EK325 Thanks.
  10. Mark, the basics is what beginners need most. Basic skating skills, stick handling skills, passing and shooting skills, and positioning. That's how I'm structuring it. About an hour of skating/passing drills, then half hour of positioning. Then a half hour of structured scrimmage.
  11. So I went to my league official a couple of months back and talked to her about my idea to do these practices. She LOVED the idea, because they haven't had someone willing to do it in a long time. For right now, we are running a 6 week program (for only $60), and after the six weeks, we'll reevaluate and go from there. Last night was the first session, and I had 36 skaters show up! I was shocked! I was expecting 15... 20 max. I guess this is something that people really wanted. The first session went well. The skill level varied pretty significantly, from people just learning to skate, to people who could execute a decent crossover and C cuts. But the feedback I got from everyone was that it was extremely helpful and they're looking forward to the coming weeks. I, myself, had a blast. I haven't coached hockey or ice skating in a LONG time, and it felt really good to be back out there doing it again. I'm excited to see where this goes.
  12. I'm running 2 sets of LS4's and I love em. Sorry you're having a tough time with them. perhaps you somehow got a set of the bad batch that came out in the beginning?
  13. Nah, it was too far down for that. The top of the stick was taped, and he was heating the area just below where he taped it.
