  1. Surprised that he isn't rocking that Gretzky Jofa VM helmet. I remember seeing a news picture from last year where he was playing on that same team with that Jofa on Edit: Just googled "jaromir jagr kladno", wasn't too hard to find => https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-prerov-czech-republic-07th-feb-2018-jaromir-jagr-of-kladno-in-action-173675043.html
  2. Right now I'm only looking for vintage stuff. Koho, Jofa, Tackla ... everything I love about 90s hockey gear.
  3. It's been all Bauer, CCM, Warrior etc. since around 2006 or something. I think around the time Koho and Jofa were bought out, Tackla dropped off too. So yea it's a niche, maybe even a struggling brand right now. Nobody buys new Tackla equipment anymore and it's sold only marginally. Teams in finnish national league SM Liiga are sponsored and equipped either by Bauer, CCM or Warrior. My perception of Tackla for the last 10+ years has been that they've concentrated more on rink ball and ice bandy and those sports are dying right now. Obviously concentrating on those sports was a mistake.
  4. Even being a finnish brand, they don't have their products in any usual retail stores that sell hockey equipment. I have no idea what their business model these days is. Our beer league team did order team jerseys and socks from them though. Back in the 90s everyone here had either Tackla, Koho or Jofa equipment. Now only those that have old or second hand equipment wear them. https://www.tackla.com/company.html
  5. @nyquil How would you compare the fit/sizing on Warrior, Bauer etc. gloves? I have eyed a pair of Winnwell gloves online for some time now but never had a chance to try the sizing for myself.
  6. https://www.kiekkobussi.com . I have no idea about how and if they ship outside of Finland. They sell new and used gear as well.
  7. ... and I did order another Super Mac Daddy. So basically I got 2 bit cheaper than a price of one.
  8. I don't know why here in Finland local stores want to get rid of Warrior QRLs but I don't mind. Last week snatched a QRL Pro about 33% off retail price and this week I ordered the throwback QRL Super Mac Daddy for over 50% off the retail price. I'm very tempted to order another one of the latter since they still had them in stock today. I can't even normally get a QRL4 at that price :D
  9. Bauer P92, CCM P29, Warrior W03, Easton E3. The most common blade in every budget stick I've ever seen. To me it has been the "standard/normal" blade for over 10 years and everyone I know here in Finland has started with that.
  10. I've been wanting a new pair of 4roll gloves for a while now but didn't really like any brand's current selections and price points so I tried to look into Finland's pro stock offerings. There isn't much pro stock equipment available here in Finland if any, but I found these online at ebay Germany. Supposedly some german hockey team's pro stock. Easton E-PRO's.
  11. While searching for the Alpha QX stick here online in Finland I came across a weirdly named version of the stick - Alpha QX Team. So far the Warrior line has been consistent with the naming, QRL, QRL Pro, QRL3-5 etc., same with the QX. But clearly in the photo the stick is versioned a QXT (as in QX Team?). Does anyone have come across this same model? Or does anyone have any info on how this "QXT" aligns itself into the line, among the QX, QX Pro, QX3 etc. The pricing on this one is in line with the QX3 and a bit cheaper as the QX Pro. Here is the link to the product (In Finnish): https://xxl.fi/warrior-alpha-qx-team-75-17-sr-w03-aikuisten-jaakiekkomaila/p/1134513_1_style They also have QXT-named gloves as well: https://xxl.fi/warrior-alpha-qxt-polygiene-17-aikuisten-jaakiekkohanskat/p/1134516_3_style
  12. If you don't have a lot of experience, take more wrist- and snapshots than slappers and aren't too confident with your shot technique - go 77 flex. It'll be easier to learn to load up on the stick. You can always go up on the flex later. Bauer P92 is the most "standard" curve, go with that if you decide to buy Bauer and don't have any preferences.
  13. Jesse Puljujärvi with Bauer 1N gloves and a CCM Ribcor Trigger stick. I guess now that he doesn't have to use Warrior anymore like he had to in Finland he's experimenting with different sticks.
