  1. Love how the Eagle gloves feel and play. Don't love how they smell though. Antimicrobial liner on Warrior gloves really do work. They definitely don't smell like hockey like my Eagles do...
  2. Of course the polished runners will make you skate super fast! Also get yourself yellow laces - I hear they give you mad dangles - and tinted visors - guaranteed to make you score... both on and off the ice. And don't forget the massive flop. Everyone knows the dude with the biggest flop is the alpha dog...
  3. Piggy-backing off of an old thread... What would be your pick for the knee pad with good protection on the "side" of the knee? I've had my Reebok 18K's for about 4 years now. Great fit, excellent protection up front and no problem until this season. I took puck to the side of the knee for the second time in 3 months. Both times left me with a gnarly bruise on the side of the knee as there was not much there for protection. I'm a D-man so unfortunately I find myself in the way of a shot or cross pass more often than I'd like...
  4. No. I've had a pair for about a year now. 2~3 games a week. I haven't had any issues with the LS4s.
  5. +1. Although I would go with slimmer mouth guard rather than ditching it altogether. I've had similar pain in the temples with mouth guards. I went with soccer/basketball style slimmer mouth guard with upper teeth guard only and problem solved. Even with a cage, I would still recommend the mouth guard as getting the cage slammed into you chin can still cause your teeth to break.
  6. Beer league in Japan? That's awesome. How many teams in the league? Is there a lot of players out there? Anyways, I have DJ-200 jersey that's my go to jersey for pick up games. Used for about 3 years now and still holding up well. The material is a bit more light weight and stretch-ey than some other brands but it's been durable so far. The fit is a bit on tight side - especially in the shoulder - so pick the size accordingly. For reference, I'm 5'-10" 32 waist and medium fits me snug.
  7. Old version of LS4 has two notches (teeth) near the heel of the skate above the 'LS4' marker. The new versions don't. That's how you can tell which version you'be got.
  8. Yes and yes to baking the boots and Speedplates. You'll have to see what steel they come with and decide what to do. LS4 is nice but not necessary. Your options are pretty limited for "something else" with the LS Edge holders.
  9. Holly molly... CAD$300 for a bucket? I'm sure it's nice but man... I can't afford that.
  10. Does she use waxed laces? How often do you change them? Wax on the laces wear off and they don't grip as well. Eventually leads to heel lifts and your skates feeling "loose". Personally I'll swap the laces every time I get them sharpened. Probably once a month...
  11. Why do you play with goalie stick?
  12. ...and I thought I have a problem.
  13. If I had to do it again, I'd go for medium girdle and small shell.
  14. FYI I'm 5'-10", 32" waist and I wear a medium. I also have the medium shell but I feel I could go with small instead. My shell hangs 1"~2" below the girdle and I have to fully tighten the waist strap on the girdle. By the way, you must be a Canadian. Only a true Canuck would do something he's supposed to and apologize for it.
  15. This? https://www.pacificrink.com
  16. There was a link to Kickstart page posted here awhile ago of a hockey bag development. It looked pretty interesting. Backpack strap, lots of compartment - what you're looking for. Either way, sounds like you're pretty sold on Pro15. Why not just get it? Asking here, you'll likely get the responses 1) Warrior pro bag is awesome, 2) Grit tower is OK, and 3) Bauer bags have durability issue and some variations of it. You want to get Pro15. Sounds like we're not going to change your mind.
  17. Better to swap both and keep the old unbroken runner as a spare. Runners come in pairs so it's not like you can just buy one. You can get LS3 or LS4 (similar 10' profile as LS3 but better steel). You can also get LS Fusion which has 9' radius and different steel composition which makes it lighter.
  18. Could be that you're sensitive to the pressure in your ankle given your history of major injury and all. I have pretty weak ankle from skiing injury few years back and yeah I find I'm extra sensitive to any "sensations" in that ankle. Other than that, have you been properly fitted to the skate? (ie someone who knows what their doing fit your skates). If so, then get skating and give it some time or your balance and strength to come back.
  19. OP - FYI the radius of the runner is not "turning" radius. It's the radius of the profile of the rocker of the runner.
