  1. Can't say wrt int, but sr is accurate. Big fan of Geppetto, highly recommend the sticks. They are close to top of the line sticks in performance, custom options are amazing. Unfortunately, just saw on his insta this morning that the nhlpa sent him a cease and desist email re posting pics of NHLers and using player names for his curves. I get the second one, but he posts from Getty images, so not exactly sure what authority the NHLPA have over that. Anyway, someone above mentioned his way of describing curves, which I agree, it is a bit odd. I recently have been using a stack of Warrior W10 retail Gionta curves and love them. Asked his rec and he suggested Gino pro, which I have and can say that the Gionta has a lower lie and a way bigger toe hook than Malkin. From his visualizer, it looks to me like Hossa, Kovy or Spezza are much closer to W10. The other thing that irks me is that he changes the lie, often making it higher than the actual pro curve.
  2. They're eyelet extenders. Never seen them up on the top eyelets, but they increase the commune of the skate over a few eyelets if there is a small area that requires more volume. Someone else might know the specifics of it's function here
  3. Looks like the next Supreme line release with some white accents
  4. Hgql, ft1, tacks (hgtk). You can usually find a pair of those new for around 100 on sideline, depending on what color you're after.
  5. Gotta upload the image to a host. https://imgbb.com/ The V3 was a lower price point stick and was not made in Mexico. Only top sticks. BTW, as a big fan of Easton sticks myself, I would say try pro stock hockey sticks. Com. Definitely have a very Easton feel and lot of custom curves. @PBHgot me into them and I like them a lot.
  6. I'm a black laces guy, mostly cuz I hate changing laces and white get dirty too fast. But there's nothing like a clean pair of white ref laces. Last yellow laces I wore was on my old Mission Amp Fly skates. Those were hot
  7. I would go with a 7.5 TF9 if I were you. The TF9 is higher than 3X/3S tier skate. They are top of the line quality just like Hyper lite or ultra Sonic
  8. Why not lol Bucket- Easton e700s PS (+ an S19 and an 11k) Gloves- few pairs mic Easton pro 4rolls PS, Easton HSX, warrior franchise and Bauer 2n pros (+ some 1S, NXGs, 11ks/hg12s and 2S pros). Elbows- Easton Synergy 700 NHL Shins- PS Easton Stealth S9 Skates- True TF9 on sprungs+true TF9 on Tuuks Girdle- Eagle gx88 I think, 9k and Easton Synergy pro Shoulders- Eagle Aero pro Twig- TPS Tricore 2piece with Easton p7 Iginla blades
  9. Thank God, because the 2S Pros were crazy stiff. Not sure about ultras, but between the injected facing and Curv Composite, dang, at 225lbs with close to 30 years experience and being a strong skater I still had a tough time flexing them forward and often skipped the top 2 eyelets. Got used to it and didn't feel it until I went to True.
  10. In terms of warmth, long johns, wool socks, hoodie and jersey, hat or ear muffs. I also use ski glove liners if it's really cold. Possibly sunglasses. For protection, shins, gloves, cup and maybe helmet depending on tourney. That's what I do, some might wear more
  11. Nope. And that wouldn't help anyway, they fit fine, just the the ridge on the bottom makes no sense. I don't need to go a half size up
  12. I'm generally very happy with my TF9s, but a few folks have mentioned the little ridge in the front bottom of the toe cap on the half sizes. Does this go away? Didn't bother me for a while, but the other day I got tripped and while trying to catch myself, I felt my big toe jam into that ridge and it left a nice bruise on the front of my toe. Not broken, but still uncomfortable and I've never had such a thing happen in any other skate. Hoping the ridge there will eventually compress or something, but if anyone can speak from experience I'd appreciate it
  13. Agree with this. When they dropped I tried a 9, which is what I usually wear (I'm a true 9L and 9.25R) and they felt fine. But practically, I ended up buying them in 8.5R, and I probably could have dropped to 8R if I wanted a super performance fit, but these are comfortable and I'm past the stage of jamming my feet. So I also owe Matt an apology
  14. The f60 will definitely feel stiffer than a 703
  15. Agree, I won a set of the RRs at my local rink for some 3v3 tourney that they held for fun, and now I can't find a set online cuz they're sold out lol. I stocked up on pures when they went on sale and I'm glad I did. Still have 3 sets left of +2, but I recently list about 30lbs
  16. I grabbed a pair of Rink Rat Identities and in finding them to be amazing as well. Expensive. I was running them straight across for a bit, and now I have those in the middle and pures on the front and rear wheels and it's a great setup
  17. Lol definitely a lifetime ago. I only recall the blue or the red redline Hilo frames. Thanks
  18. Glad it worked out for you, nice update.
  19. It's great, you'll love it if it fits. After the E700 it's probably the best helmet I've used in terms of fit and comfort for me. Looks pretty good too imo
  20. 11k is a great helmet
  21. My 2S Pro blades went soft at the toe (2 p92s when I was shooting off the toe a lot; the p88 2S pro I had didn't have this issue at all for some reason). I'm surprised that the Vapors are going soft so quickly
