  1. Good to hear. Waiting for shipping while missing ice time would be a crime.
  2. Yeah...when I googled it, urban dictionary came up first. But again, I live in japan so I'm not exposed to your youthful terms. That and I'm old. Now get off my lawn!
  3. I really don't know too much about boot shapes, but it sounds like you're racking up some shipping costs so I'm gonna offer an alternative: book a flight up north. Think of it, you're gonna find multiple stores stocked to the rafters, and if you learn how to book flights on the websites, you'll eventually find a flight cheap enough to make it worth it. I've had to do something similar recently and it worked quite well. Locate a cheap hotel and fly out when you have a couple of days off. It's another option.
  4. Hey guys. I need some advice on a strange bag issue. I have a Bauer rolling backpack, which has been great for a guy who uses public transport to get to the rink, and has had to haul it up a mountain more than a few times after practices and games. The issue is that as I was climbing some stairs at a train station, the telescopic handle popped out of its base at the bottom of the bag. I've tried forcing it back in, and I'm hesitant to use any kind of lever as I don't want to bend the metal bar. I've contacted my local hockey shop who pointed me to the maker as it was out of warranty. Has anyone had a similar issue in the past? Any ideas on how to fix it?
  5. Thanks guys! I've made donuts out of stock shoe insoles before to keep my ankles from blistering (slip inside sock and voila! No blisters) so I'll try something like that first and then go for building up the tongue. You've just saved me a big headache and maybe a couple hundred dollars!
  6. Hey guys. I'm a middle aged dude slowly but surely getting fatter and fatter, and I'm looking into buying a damn nice pair of skates that will hopefully last me for quite a long time. Problem is, the bone in the middle of my foot sticks up quite a bit and every skate I've tried on with decent tongue protection annoys the holy b-jesus out of it. Another issue is that I live in Japan, which means selection at the only local hockey shop is limited at best. I've tried on the Bauer Supreme 180s and they feel great except for that damn bone in the middle of the top of my foot! I'd like to try the 190s as well and I'd be confident ordering them if and only if I could punch a dent in the tongue of the skate like I've done before for the ankle. Has anyone done this before? Did it work?
