  1. I heard that Base was/is going under.
  2. Hope Sean Avery helps him get some support from the pros to get permission to use their images
  3. There's no claim of an endorsement, and it seems to me like nothing that a nice big "no players shown here are sponsored or endorse our sticks" can't fix. But either way, dudes gonna change his pattern names to something funny.
  4. I view it more like a fan page. Dude loves sticks and curves. If I were him I would definitely look into my options to take legal action, but he doesn't seem like that kinda guy.
  5. MacKinnon looks like it's a bit more open faced and looks like it's missing that real hard hook right up to the tip of the blade
  6. Imo yes, however, if you are concerned then you can always just buy a pair of vapors
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Looks like the next Supreme line release with some white accents
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. The f60 will definitely feel stiffer than a 703
