  1. Obviously it's because some people need red skates and others need yellow..
  2. It's hosted on Pure hockey... I too like the ribcore a lot, but find the fit to be way too shallow, so I'm excited for this new fit system. That convinced with the 100k pro monocoque boot is very enticing for my next skates whenever I need them
  3. From what I've heard the rx3 is the best stick they have made, Halo not being quite light or durable enough. But at bogo you pretty much can't beat any offer
  4. And the fzs are still full price...? Not a fan of either, but that's a bit odd
  5. Yeah I wouldn't expect True to honor a warrantee for this as they have a pretty easy out by just saying that the mount was done improperly.
  6. The RS and rsx will not hold up well. Imo they're a waste of money. If you're a fit 3 then CCM tacks might be good for you in a wider width. However, going up in a size to accommodate width or depth is a bad idea. Go to another shop because that guy's a bozo for even suggesting that
  7. Assuming wm01 is top of the line, then yes. But if it goes like the fz series (fz0 being the best offering), wm01 would be equivalent to fz1, which retailed for 750.
  8. Yup, those are 17" shins there buddy. Hope you can get your full refund and return.
  9. Everyone I know who had it had already sold them and gone back to tuuks and XS
  10. Yup, that looks like the reason for the crack My customs did not have that gap. Not sure about other retail models
  11. Like others have said, I wouldn't be too concerned. But I would be a bit annoyed honestly. I wonder what caused that. I have never seen a skate break from an inline puck. Too light. Dented chassis, sure, but to me that looks more like the plastic toe cap isn't completely tight to the carbon mold, so when the R1 was mounted, it might have squeezed the area where the carbon and plastic meet around the rivet. If there was some play there, most likely the torsion of play caused that small crack. But that's my theory based on one picture, so take it with a grain of salt
  12. I'm about to buy one of these to keep myself safe for the next time I open this thread...
  13. I absolutely do not think that. I was suggesting that Deker give it a shot of he is concerned enough.
  14. Well, so far it doesn't look like people are going nuts buying up all the old Jofa 390s. I think that might be at least a crude market indicator. Yes, it is their money. I don't care if they waste it, but they didn't become a successful company by making bad decisions. I wasn't saying that they shouldn't do it; I was saying that they won't... Because it's not a profitable enterprise and, like it or not, they are a for-profit corporation. And how long did it take from Masterson until helmets were required? And how much longer until they actually were worth anything in terms of protection? 30+ years later, and now over 50 years later and they still haven't made a perfect helmet. My point is that these things don't happen in a vacuum, and they don't happen over night. Do you understand how difficult of a process it was too get helmets into the league? And then to regular their quality? And then visors? You're dealing with red tape out the wazoo, and players and agents, unions etc. I agree, it's unfortunate, but it takes a long time and a lot of money, effort and yes, aggravation, to get anything done in the real world. If you like Jofa, I'd suggest you buy it now, because you're gonna be waiting a very long time for Bauer or CCM to make one like it... Regarding Timur, it's terribly sad what happened. We can speculate, but we don't really know what would be. Like the old saying goes, "if I had eggs, I'd have sausage and eggs, if I had sausage..."
  15. Seriously brah, you sound like a little kid. In real life, even if having earflaps on hockey helmets might offer more protection, Bauer and CCM and not going to just start doing it to prevent a very uncommon mishap. More likely, if you really want something, is to create some sort of clip-on after market device to protect that area, and then the small niche market for people who want it will be able to put it on whatever helmet they want. However, even with that, I would not quit my day job in the hopes of making a living selling hockey ear protectors. There just is not a market for it. It would cost a ton of money for companies to try and generate a market for it. So just go on sideline and buy an old Jofa 390.
  16. I saw pj kavaya the last time he was in the states and I don't recall him on the R1s. Maybe in Europe he's on them...? Anyway, I've definitely seen a few pairs in the southwestern tourneys, but not anywhere near as many as kryptoniums. I have a teammate on R1s and he likes them, but last week he cut hard and a huge chunk of the upper plastic piece cracked off. He was able to post the rest of the game and they're under warrantee still, but it's not fun to see, and who knows if that could have broken in a different spot and taken him down hard. I recall that with sprungs Kieth says to make sure to hydrate the plastic so that it stays strong. I wonder if the same might apply for R1s. We're on the desert in Phoenix AZ, so I try to take care of the sprungs. Not sure about the Marsblade plastic polymer, maybe it dries out and becomes more brittle
  17. Hyperlite. I think it will release in June
  18. Nobody is saying they are opposed to it, just that they don't expect to actually see this happen. BTW, you can just wear a ski helmet if you are concerned.
  19. Dang, I pay 11 for a green biscuit and 10 foot the ones that you can play with. They're so much more fun than any other puck. Want to try the hoplite though
  20. Lol we were way too poor for gimmicks back then. Rubbing alcohol ftw. Btw, on topic for this thread, in update from my last post for labeda asphalts, I've been able to try tricksters 84a and they're pretty good but not really worth the extra guap, and also Konixx rockets 2x or whatever they're called, and they're also great, little bit more rebound than the asphalt, similar durability, I prefer the color too lol. Never tried revision asphalt but heard good things about them
  21. I'm right handed so I can't say about shooting, but Laine is a heel curve with a toe kink
  22. Labeda gripper yellow are 80a and would probably work well for you. Konixx Pure +1 is officially 76a. Smooth concrete outdoor rinks tend to be super dusty usually, which plays a big part in the sliding out. Ime there is no wheel that prevents that. We used to rub the wheels down with alcohol which helps them grip a bit, but you have to do it every few shifts really.
  23. Didn't realize that, because the first gen RBK pads sold in US were chinese made but looked like the white and blue pros. In that case do your thing. I don't see what the issue would be with swapping a liner
