  1. damn, i've broke a runner once in my entire 24 years playing hockey
  2. step steel is always worth the money. i've thrown them in 3 pairs of skates at this point
  3. its also funny that after Gretzky said that about wood sticks, you see him using composite sticks in every alumni game he's played in
  4. i dont tie my skates that tight either, but prefer wax laces just because they're so much more durable. any time i've used non-waxed they get sliced in game 1 or 2
  5. i hate grip sticks and buy matte, but i use a rather small amount of tape up top. i play with a guy that doesn't tape the top of his sticks, but he wore a giant hole through his palm super quickly
  6. i use 100/50 and love it, but i'm only 165 lbs
  7. well yeah, its gonna take some time to get used to the shorter stick. but once you do, you're gonna love it
  8. i'm pretty much the same type of player and i use the PM9. cut to the botttom of my lips when barefoot and 65 flex
  9. i didn't know they made different kinds. i guess i'm anal enough to notice the elite are thinner, but not quite as anal as you
  10. yeah elite laces suck. i like the howies and a&r
  11. my current skates don't have the comfort edge, my last pair did. i've never felt a difference, really. my hockey socks end up being under the top of the skate anyway so even though i skate barefoot, that part of the skate never touches my skin
  12. I've been playing with a completely dead stick for like 2-3 months waiting for it to break while I have a brand new one sitting at home. still scoring with it, so
  13. 100% psychology. and usually the guys spending top dollar on equipment thinking it'll make them better that I play with are ankle benders that need to spend that money on skating lessons instead lol
  14. i try not to spend over $100 on a stick and i always score more goals and get more assists than the guys playing with $300 sticks lol but its beer league so
  15. really? I was told X7 was the closest equivalent and I dont really notice a difference please educate me
  16. yeah, i went from 5/8" to 100/50 or X7 and the difference was insane. almost fell on my face and had to skate really carefully for my first few shifts til i got used to it and been flying ever since. no way i could go back to a regular hollow
  17. i hope my local Pure Hockey doesn't do the same. but thankfully, i have 2 other places i can get FBV done around here.
  18. always been a Graf guy. previously worn 703s and 704. currently wearing F60 which is the predecessor to 703/704 and they're definitely my favorite since its the same skate but they weigh half as much
  19. i have these and think they look much better after 6+ months of wear than they did brand new
  20. i sprayed the cage portion of my Tron combo white which i think helps with looking down at your feet. never been a fan of black cages
  21. i have the Tron and love it. been using it for 3+ years and it barely ever fogs
  22. its funny cause i don't think i own anything bauer. when it comes to sticks i just buy whatever is on sale in the curve and flex that i like and the brand doesn't matter. so sometimes its bauer, but its a coincidence. lately i've just been buying allblackhockeysticks cause i can get the curve, flex, and matte finish i like hassle-free for cheap and the sticks perform and last as well as most other sticks i have to hunt the clearance racks and websites for
  23. if your skates are fitted and baked properly your foot shouldn't be sliding? or am i crazy
