  1. Nice find. I guess he can afford to pay retail.
  2. I filed a claim with sidelineswap, getting a full refund. They paid return shipping to Laval, Quebec. SLS had no interest in pursuing the matter further, and neither did CCM. So I'm guessing the guy will put it right back in inventory and sell to someone else.
  3. This got me really curious, so I called CCM in Montreal , described the situation, and gave them all codes/serial numbers/etc. They said they are "100% absolutely certain that this is not an FT4 Pro, and quite possibly not even a CCM original product". Quite a few lessons learned here.
  4. Well, I talked to the local CCM pro rep. The RY construction is the "Team" model, used by some AHL guys for practice due to its durability. About half the price of the real FT4 Pro. I guess that's why the guy didn't show the label in his listing.
  5. Just took delivery of a new 85 FLEX pro stock CCM FT4 PRO stick purchased off Sideline Swap. As soon as I unwrapped it, it didn't feel right. Heavy. I weighed it on a digital scale, 423 grams. In the closet I have a new FT3 PRO, which weighed in at 379 grams, even with a 3 inch longer shaft. The name plate has no name, the serial number script is also different. What might I have here, a cheaper FT4 PRO TEAM stick? A counterfeit?
  6. I would re-bake the Jetspeeds and give them a few more skates. One ice session probably isn't enough time to have the heel padding compress and for your heel to pack in. This may fix your problem if the heel settles back a bit. It may not be that your foot is too wide for them, your foot might be a bit too far "forward".
  7. I currently wear pro stock FT1 and pro stock ultra tacks, both in 14 inch. The FT1 are noticeably smaller fitting than the ultra tacks.
  8. They will probably release them in the spring, and consumers will be able to buy them sometime in 2023. Just like everything else due to supply chain shortages.
  9. Can't really use PS as a comparison to sticks, because Sony sells them at cost or even a slight loss in order to drive software sales (which is where the money is).
  10. I had an interesting discussion with someone from Bauer a month or so ago. He told me that about 70% of the pros wearing hyperlites this year are actually wearing 2Xpro's with a hyperlite aesthetics package. Some are still using the 2Xpro graphics, which won't be offered after the 2021-2022 season. His point was that the pros find something that works and they don't like change. For me, it says a lot about the real life advantages of hyperlite features.
  11. Probably the best short answer is to sign up for a level 1 USA Hockey coaches clinic and do the U6 age specific module. The modules are $10 and will give 3 or 4 hours of age specific guidance on the topics that will help you.
  12. Okay, this one is a bit odd. I store my sticks in the garage, and in the summer it gets quite hot (probably 100 degrees F). I've got about a dozen sticks, mostly CCM, a couple Bauer, and two True (A6.0 SBP, A5.2 SBP). For some reason , the 2 Trues have become incredibly sticky. I'm talking "if I hold my hand out with the palm facing down and open my hand, the stick stays stuck to my palm" sticky. They are unusable. All other brand sticks are perfectly fine. Anyone else experience this with True, and how to fix? I tried soap and water, did nothing.
  13. For the situation you mentioned, any certified helmet is fine (I use a CCM 310). You should be equally concerned with elbow protection. I wear these G-Form elbows made with D30 or similar. They are actually for downhill mountainbiking, but are lightweight and you don't even know they're there: G-Form Elbow Pads G-Form Elbow Guards | G-Form
  14. OK, so I have a beloved pair of Bauer Supreme 1S in size 7D. The fit is perfection. In the current Bauer line up, what model would be most like them?
