  1. Will this shell fit over a pair of traditional hockey pants and if so, does it require you to go a size up?
  2. Hey guys haven't been on here in a while but was curious if based on what I have read above, that a code of LXPX would mean its an LX PRO with a QX blade and the X would mean the blade is extra stiff? BTW, What hand do shoot beerleaguecaptain? I came across a P46 curve if you're still using it.
  3. You raise a VERY VALID point. I guess my question now is; why does Bauer offer this if they are not benefiting from it in some way?
  4. I would suggest that if you are TRULY interested in that to look into www.Prostockhockeysticks.com . Geppetto offers most everything and anything you could ask for at an extremely fair price and high quality products. He is who made my mold and my sticks for me. I get your point and that is why I say to at least provide a custom offering like the one vendor does. That way stores aren't at a high risk of inventory and neither is the vendor if you are going to have to wait a few weeks for what you want. Hell, they could even require a minimum number of sticks so they know that the guys like us are serious about what we are wanting. To be fair I would love to hear from someone at Warrior as to why the stopped the custom offerings just so I can make sense of it all. I really do appreciate the feedback from you guys because I believe this is how we help move the needle and why I have always loved this forum.
  5. I think its safe to say they are making a killer profit as most of the money goes into marketing more than anything. I think they would make even more if they would focus on making products that are as durable as they perform rather than racing to the bottom with who can make the lightest stick that breaks in 5 games or less. As for the molds, I'm not saying to develop anything new. I'm simply saying that they have the molds from previous generations and simply offer what they already have molds of. As you said; Its really not that hard. If one vendor can do it, why can't another. With that said, I paid to have a mold made and it was roughly $1200.00. They would make that back in just a few sticks with what they charge for custom sticks today.
  6. I came across this thread as I was wondering what the true differences were between the P80 and the now P88. After reading through this thread it has lead me to a couple of questions and conclusions. First, Why in todays world are we as consumers limited to only 3.5 curve choices? I say 3.5 because we all know the P90 is a P28/P29 HYBRID. Second, Why does only one brand offer a Custom curve choice option? I know that I'm going to be told that its all about demand. I don't believe that there is a HUGE demand for the P90. Am I wrong? Just using this as an example. Why not offer at least the P19 That was a cross between the P91 and P92 for the guys that were heel curve fans. I guess my rant here is that as I am a HUGE fan of the JETSPEED sticks, however I have been forced to pick a curve and learn how to make it work for me. That is unless I want to go to Geppetto's site and build my own for a fraction of the price. Obviously we know its not the same as an FT5 / 6 Pro but you can still get a great stick with a wide variety of curves and builds to choose from. I have even reached out to one offering to buy a dozen "top end" stick in a curve THEY DEVELOPED and was told they would not do it. WTF? I don't understand why more BIG NAME vendors are not offering this like the one that charges a premium. I believe that people would pay it (I know I would) if I could have the curve of my choice rather than paying top dollar for a choice that is forced on you. Would love to hear your thoughts on this. Preferably from guys that grew up with more than 3.5 options.
  7. Hey gang, I came across this old thread but it said that it was closed so I am reopening this again, I just finished my morning skate and noticed that the screw and nut at the bottom of my jock had come unscrewed and fell apart. I never paid much attention to how it was assembled as I thought it was done by machine and not hand. Needing to know how to reassemble the bottom screw that holds the two loops together. More so, how exactly it fits. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. Great guy with a great business that I'm sure many of us wished we could have done. I don't understand why only one (BIG) vendor allows a choice of old patterns and pro patterns when clearly there is a market for this. Last year he had made me a custom mold for a pattern that no longer is around and the original brand wouldn't let me custom order even in a dozen of their top end sticks. My only wish would be for him to make a hybrid flex shaft rather than a mid or a low kick.
  9. Hey gang, Its been a number of years since I retired the first time. I have now decided to jump back in the mix and noticed what you all have been discussing here. The lack of curves, Heel curves in particular. I have searched high and low for the W12 Pavalski retail curve. This was what I made the switch to from the P89 / Darby when those became near impossible and I actually fell in love with the W12 curve. Never the less, like you all I'm hell bent on getting these and have reached out to Pro stock hockey sticks to make me a mold for them seeing as how Warrior will no longer take custom orders even for a dozen sticks. Or at least that's what the person on the chat told me. If any of you have a work around with Warrior I would love to hear it before I drop over a grand on a mold of a pattern that already exists with a company that is still around.
  10. I recently bought a pair of PROSTOCK TRUE SKATES as I’m going to try and get back on the ice after a few years of not playing. The fit is great other than the outside of the ankle. I was wanting to know if there is a fix to this. I have not molded them yet and not sure if I should return them.

    Hey there gang, Just wanted to make you all aware that everything left is negotiable. Just want it to go to guys that'll use it. I have also decided to sell some of my personal stash that I hold near and dear. Message me with any questions.

    Yes its just a wooden plug. The heel lifts are to adjust the pitch on your skates putting you more on your toes.
