  1. Yesterday I started physical therapy for my knee. I completely ruptured my MCL in January. The therapist says she thinks I should start skating again in about 2 weeks. I'm super excited
  2. Well I am now on my 4th month of of custom True skates. I typically play 3-4 times a week lately and I have played in 2 tournaments in this time period. I love these skates. I'm not a very good player, but these have made me a better skater all around. I can actually feel my edges and my "speed" has improved. But most importantly, my feet never hurt when I'm done skating. One of the tournaments (3v3) I was in had games with an hour break between them so I never took my skates off. My first game was at 8am and the last was at 6pm. My feet felt great.
  3. WHat didn't work out for your buddy and the true skates? I just got my true customs done and they are all around great for me. I've had a dozen or so skates on them so far and have zero issues.
  4. Mine shipped yesterday, so I should have them next week and get them heat fit and set up.
  5. ah ok! Thank you for that information.
  6. anyone else order skates recently? Just curious when you got yours back from when you ordered. Mine went into production on October 19 and I'm still waiting which is fine, just really itching to get into these skates.
  7. I set my appointment tomorrow for my scan. I am really excited to see how this works out. My feet are awful and just have nothing but issus fitting into anything. So to have skates that actually fit will be great.
  8. I started drinking a ton more water, incorporating stretching before and after skating (also when I wake up and before I got to bed), and use of a massage gun (hypervolt, theragun, etc) before and after skating. My legs have never felt better
  9. How does the fit 3 compare to ccm tacks? They didn’t have any for me to try
  10. So I tried the fit 3 on. It was good on my left foot but a little tight on my right foot. The heel felt great on both feet. The thing I didn’t care for much was the ankle padding. I assume it would mold pretty well though after baking.
  11. Thanks for the advice. I'll be on the look out for these things. I don't mind working on the skates, I just want comfortable feet while skating.
  12. Well crap. Lol.
  13. Thanks for the info! I do have some hooves for sure. Lol. After I see how the fit 3 goes it might just be time to go custom
  14. I guess I will really find out on Tuesday and I’ll report back
  15. I thought I read the ccm rep saying the EE version is their widest and most volume.
  16. Same here. I might try the ccm ribcor 80k and Bauer fit 3 on Tuesday.
  17. My feet may be a bit different too. The nexus EE just barely work for me. My feet are very wide and have a bunch of volume. Like serious Fred flinstone feet.
  18. As it goes I’m in the market for new skates. These sounded like they would be a good thing to try so I ordered the TF9. some background I’m currently skating in a Nexus EE. I tried the skates TF9 on without baking and I could barely squeeze my feet in them. After reading how moldable they are I did end up baking them and unfortunately they will not work for me. There was not enough room in the forefoot and mid foot. The heel was great. The other problem was there was nowhere near enough volume. back to the drawing board. I really hope I don’t need to go full custom but damn my feet are funky.
  19. Both sides of our family are 3 hours away. Luckily we had them come down to help a little bit, but nonetheless, it was amazingly "fun" lol!
  20. Oh man! My condolences! good luck bud! lol
  21. buying a new house and moving with a 3 month old is awful. Like getting kicked in the junk with steel toe clown shoes awful
  22. my daughter was born on Wednesday, March 11 at 12:32 pm.
  23. My wife and I have been trying to start our family for 5 years now with no success. We had/needed the help of science (IVF) and we are now expecting! We are due in March and I cannot wait to meet my little girl.
  24. Piggy backing on this one.... I was playing in a league where it was nothing but irritating. Me and a couple of buds started our own "league". It has been the best thing I have ever done for my hockey "career". We handpicked our group, so everyone is fun to skate with and there is literally zero garbage happening. We have good music blaring the entire game. I look forward to this skate every week way more than I do my normal league skate.
