  1. Funny, as I recently replaced my old gloves and thought the exact opposite. Fingers seemed shorter and fit was tighter. Certainly shorter cuff.
  2. I drop the top eyelet for better forward flexion and mobility. Just my personal choice.
  3. COVID - we have to stay 6 ft away from new products (plus rinks are just starting to open again; wouldn’t have had an opp to test it)
  4. All Black hockey sticks makes a decent price point twig. Durable and good (not elite perhaps) performance.
  5. Oooohhh,.... scientific techno balls.... its so shiny !!
  6. I saw that too. Maybe they bought the name or old stock or old molds. Suspect they’re “real”, but they won’t be developing new stuff.
  7. Oh, and while based on the QX line, I don’t think they are identical. Skimming thru Stick9’s post you’ll note the AK27 SL is 40 grams lighter. https://warriorhockey.com/2017/10/20/warrior-alpha-ak27-collection-limited-release-line-details/amp/
  8. Like Nickmast said; the silver one’s aren’t the SL (super lites) for what it’s worth. The SL is sort of a dark yellowish-gold color and 410 grams based on the QX pro. The non-SL is silver representing the price point and I think is 530 grams based on a QX5
  9. Fantastic stick. Great kick for slapshots. I currently have two and am thinking of grabbing a third before they are gone.
  10. The add in USA Hockey offers a discount and says the “special” price is $189 for a senior twig. Perhaps the $300 is the MSRP which they will quickly abandon so you think it’s a great deal. i mirror others sentiments; it is a fugly stick. anyone watch the videos? Their add says it reduces blade twist but in their own slow-mo that blade is torquing and vibrating all over the place.
  11. Saw this in this month’s USA Hockey magazine http://nicchockey.com/product_details.php?pid=2&catid=3 (Note; no information on the curve patterns) Makes some bold claims; anyone have any feedback? Quoting:”Patented technology, resists blade twist, increases shot speed, spin, control and feel. Reduces drag forces, receives the puck with dead stop action. Lifts puck onto blade upon impact, the competition twist down. Exclusive carbon fiber layup and mold.” http://nicchockey.com/hockey_sticky_performance.php?a=2
  12. It has a mid-low kick; great for slappers. I have enjoyed mind quite a bit. Light, not harsh vibrations.
  13. We were trying to get some K1 sweaters, too, but they changed their policy and require a 12 piece minimum (per color). good luck!
  14. Bigger curve, but more open face. When I did it the biggest adjustments I had to make was on the back hand (harder to get under it for air due to the larger curve) and snapshots (bit higher due to the open face and bit further off to the strong side due to the bigger curve). Benefits were was a little easier to catch passes and stick handle (again, because of the bigger curve). Shouldn’t take that long to adjust.
  15. For what it's worth, those that want to give it a try can use discount code TWENTY for 20% off. Shipping is outrageous at $39, but it;s still tempting to try because of the nice assortment of flexes. If anyone has actually used one, would love to hear feedback on the balance, performance, durability, etc
  16. Thoughts on the Cypress? Sorta sounds like the old TPS hybrid blade (but lighter) http://www.verbero.com/collections/sticks/products/cypress-senior-1
  17. Awesome... read the whole article and you'll notice he "claims" that he didn't know what he did was illegal (so you almost feel bad - well, almost). But read the whole thing closely and you'll note the reason why he got caught originally had to do with his tampering with the odometer on the car he'd sold (presumably on ebay) where the cops found out he'd inflated the price during their investigation. But.... I'm sure he's innocent of not knowing that shill bidding was illegal.... suuureeeee......
  18. That is some sketchy schitte right there. Ebay gets their % off the sale price of the product, not the shipping.
  19. I haven't tried an R10 specifically, however, I have converted many, many TPS sticks and they were always the easiest; just heat and pull. Some you might have to use a pocket knife to clear some of the cement filler they use to fill the fuse point, but I'd try heat/pull first before cutting.
  20. I have never tried it on a U.CL. However, on the 110, 120, and 130's I had issues as CCM used blader technologies to make their sticks back then. As a result, the interior walls to the shaft were uneven and made for a very poor conversion. I'd only tried it on the 120, and thought I did a pretty good job on the cut, but it broke quickly and the blade was just slightly cock-eyed in the shaft due to the irregularity (not sure anyone would have noticed it had I not known myself). Regardless, it split/cracked down the corner on the first hard shot I took. The U.CL may be totally different, of course.
  21. Yes, I did it with a TPS OPS. However, those were a lot different science than, say, an Easton.
  22. I guess it's for those Michael Jackson wanna-be's of the hockey world....
  23. ACTUALLY.... take if from someone who lives in Texas: it is, in fact, quite common for bullriders to wear hockey helmets. Crazy, I know, but...
  24. Well.... at least it has free shipping...
  25. WOW! I could be rich! I mean, I have $50 worth of those in my bag right now (think they cost me $10 in total). I wonder if I can charge more if I list it as "game used"? <_<
