  1. That's the beauty of Skatescribe machines, you can create any profile you want. It's all software driven, there are no templates.
  2. Are you in So Cal? I assume so based on your user name.
  3. It will cost you more to build rather than just trying to find a used one in good condition. I recently bought one that came from an AHL team for about $300 USD, and it was in perfect condition.
  4. This is the retail Tacks X, right? The custom and retail are both entirely different. The retail model is good, but does take some adjustment time. The custom is softer, more plush, and just feels amazing out of the box.
  5. You just need to have some friends that work or own a hockey store 😉
  6. They are still around. Just not a lot of stores selling their product.
  7. FT6 Pro, FT Ghost, or Trigger 8 Pro. I obviously gravitate towards CCM sticks.
  8. Yes, the XS Reload 😉 But let's not discuss that since it won't be out until 2025.
  9. I would not say it is better or worse. That's a subjective opinion. Some might like it more than the current generation sticks, some might like it less. For example, look at how many NHL players are using stick builds that are 4+ years old and they seem to be doing just fine.
  10. Interesting to see him use them in games though. Practice, that is usual for many players, but using something new in a game is not common.
  11. Anything that has material removed to decrease weight is going to be more fragile. YMMV. It could last days or could last months.
  12. I have hit that point in my life that I will gladly pay the extra money for items if it makes me comfortable. 😉
  13. I actually like the Alpha and depending on your level of play, it might be a good option. I have taken some nasty shots from NCAA D1/D3 and ACHA D1 players, and the girdle did fine with protection. Unless you are planning to eat shots often, the Warrior girdle would be fine. I like that they have a cup pocket in them so you can either wear two cups or not wear a cup in your jock and instead put the cup in the girdle.
  14. Looks like Nate Dog is testing the Bauer Proto.
  15. I think if you can't find anything at retail that fits well and doesn't cause you pain, then the only natural decision would be to go full custom. I skate with a lot of people who buy $1100+ skates, complain about the pain they have, yet refuse to pay the small fee to upgrade to a custom skate... It's not logical.
  16. I do. But it would be best to ask them, I don't think they would appreciate me sharing any of the proprietary information.
  17. I looked into these machines before decided to move forward with a Skatescribe ISP machine. The finish of the Skatescribe ISP makes this machine irrelevant.
  18. Not sure if I agree that the carbon ones offer any increase in performance compared to the comfort. They are both very different in design. IMO, the best foot bed is the one that feels most comfortable.
  19. I have never seen a 280 holder mount in 271 holes unless the holes are expanded or worn out. That is VERY weird.
  20. I can't tell from your pic of that is indeed a 271. Is that's what's stamped on the holder?
  21. It is possible. But then that would theoretically affect the engagement of all steel, assuming they all had the same dimensions.
  22. Dimensions are the same as the Pulse steel. You want something taller? Consider JRZ.
  23. Are both the DLC and SS exactly the same if you lay them on one another? Even a small variance could result in the problem you are experiencing.
  24. Agreed. I was kinda saying it “tongue in cheek” since it's been widely known he has had his fair shared of struggles. https://www.secondcityhockey.com/chicago-blackhawks-2022-23-nhl-regular-season-recap-connor-murphy-player-review/
