  1. I meant prostockhockey.com, but also never came across prostockhockeysticks, so thanks for that one too!
  2. Hey again all, quick question about a retailer. Has anyone used Pro Stock Hockey to buy sticks? Any issues with it, is it legit, so on and so forth? I don't think in all of my searching for a cheap version of my preferred pattern I've ever come across this site.
  3. Sorry for the delay here, work sucked yesterday. Like S_T_G mentioned, these are very thin. For the hole in the palm, I put another piece on the inside to help seal it up and reduce the stickiness when actually wearing it. I can't tell a difference. The hole in the finger, of course, was harder to get to, so I just used a piece of stick tape on the inside for that one, as best as I could. Again, so my ring/finger wasn't sticking to the adhesive. @shoot_the_goalie I did read the option of taking the palms from another pair, but I just couldn't find a pair cheap enough to then destroy. Definitely going to keep the old gloves around now for that reason.
  4. Sure thing, here's the full title: Gear Aid Tenacious Tape GORE-TEX Fabric Patches, Black, 3" Round & 2" x 4" Rectangle, 2 Count
  5. What's up gang? Wanted to share a product I tried for patching some holes in my gloves. So far after three games, they're holding up. I'm a righty, so the big hole in my left palm is from the butt and actually holding my stick. The one on the right finger is because I don't take my wedding ring off ever, so it was much smaller and just starting to split open. You can see from the patch on the palm that it is starting to peel up on the corner a bit, so will probably replace it sooner than later and will just try a small piece and not getting so close to that role/hem line. Oh ya, didn't use any extra glue on the patches either. Cut the size I wanted, peeled the back off, stuck it on. Quick and easy. Maybe I'll try adding some on the next palm patch. Again, wanted to share with everyone in case you were needing a repair. For the price it's doing its job, so can't complain at this point. Hope this helps.
  6. Happy Holidays everyone. Have a quick question about hockey bags. My trustee old, basic Bauer bag is finally splitting, and the zipper keeps coming off the track. Since I started searching for hockey bags, I'm getting all of the ads for Conway & Banks, and similar bags that look to have a lot of bells and whistles. Does anyone actually have one of these? Are there other brands that you've found to be very durable? Are the C&B bags really just a bunch of a fluff or are they worth it? How about Pacific Rink? Please let me know your thoughts, and thank you in advance.
  7. Brother, I gotta get all of the mechanics, trust me.
  8. I don't understand it either, but when I've tried to pull the puck back and load it up for a shot, the puck rolls up and over my blade. I've had some teammates say the same thing to me how the puck looks like I chopped at it to flip it on its side.
  9. I know... I started playing with only Bauer, and I know this may sound weird, but Warrior sticks feel so much lighter to me than Bauer ones. I guess my real question is, if W01 = PM9, why does Warrior make it impossible to find a W01 stick in-store? I've even searched Pure, Monkey, Ice Warehouse, etc. in the $200+ sticks and W01 is never listed as an option.
  10. Hey gang. I've been using a W03 for a while now, and it's been fine. Lately I feel like the puck is jumping over my blade though when I really need that toe drag most, so I've been checking out the W28 and considering trying that blade out. Has anyone made that jump recently and if so what were your thoughts? I have no slap shot whatsoever, so quick wristers or snap shots is all I relay on. But that leads to my next question... I've also been considering a W01 because I got to my backhand A LOT. But I'm finding it near impossible to find a Warrior with that blade pattern anywhere. Anyone have a secret site they use for Warrior W01 sticks? And yes, I know I may be limiting myself, but I really like Warrior's sticks and they're my go-to now.
  11. I'm going through this right now and was about to make a post asking for some other sites or what people think. I try to find a stick/blade for less than $70 and give it a try for a game or two. If I don't like it, I try to sell it to someone. This approach is much easier said than done though.
  12. That's a bingo. It's a sweet spot where there is and isn't big padding, depending on how I high I hike the pants up. I'm going to check out those shock doctor slide shorts I think. Fortunately I have a week off from game to try and rest it up. Thanks dude!
  13. My current pants are CCM Vector 06. Never had this problem before when I would fall. And there is padding there, but I'm wondering if maybe they're too big on me now and the shell is shifting on me when I am going down.
  14. I know I'm opening this up for insults and jokes, and that's OK, I kind of just need to vent, and maybe get some advice from you all after you get your zings in. The last three games, I have pulled almost the identical play of hitting a rut with my right skate and then falling hard on my right hip/ass cheek, and this third time, it hurts guys. I'm assuming a very deep bruise in said cheek, but hurts to the point it was waking me up last night when I would roll over. I'm looking at my shell today, and nothing seems worn out, but is it time for new pants? Is that even the problem, or have I just been unlucky falling on the same exact spot three weeks in a row? Again, feel free to get your yucks out, and if you have any suggestions, let me have it. Hope this made you chuckle.
  15. Thanks for the replies everyone, and wow, I wasn't expecting to see so much love for STX. The only downside now is the little hockey store here in the South only carrying the big brands, and maybe having to do the whole purchase/return route until I find a pair I like. And to those suggesting the tailor route to fix the velco, I was thinking about that as well, but some of the foam on my current pads is starting to crack and puff out, so it's time for a new pair in general. Of all the gear I think the elbow pads are the things that I've never been happy with and just tolerated without getting too attached to.
