  1. Yeah, it would be sad if they drop Tuuk… but every picture i’ve seen is missing it.
  2. Just wondering if there‘a a noticeable difference?
  3. Haven’t seen a good girdle discussion in awhile. I’m thinking of making the switch. Advice?
  4. Hard to find but CCM HG852 have some of the biggest open cuffs I’ve ever used.
  5. I had a chance to hold one the other day. Might be my imagination but the taper felt a little different. Thoughts?
  6. Bauer offering Mach skates, but only through custom. https://www.bauer.com/en-US/my-bauer-landing-page.html/customize-ice-hockey-skates/mybauer-skates-654081.html?family=SupremeMachSkate2022
  7. Give me a couple days. I promised a buddy that I’d give him first dibs. If he doesn’t want we can work something out.
  8. I just received two pairs in the mail. I bought the 13” and the 14” just to see which fit better with the intention of returning/reselling the pair I don’t want. I just want to give anyone interested a heads up that these gloves run very small. The 13”s are tiny. The thumb is very short. I’m even reconsidering the 14”s because they are also quite small overall. I may wait to use these until I can get a pair of 15” just to be sure. FYI I normally always select 14”s but admittedly tend towards 4 rolls which generally run larger and looser To be clear the gloves are awesome. Very well made, incredibly interesting, as comfortable as advertised. I’m just being really picky because I want to use these for a long time.
  9. Really nice review! You do a great job. Gonna have to subscribe now! I kinda already knew the carbonlite runner was gonna be a gimmick. I’ve been on True’s for a couple years so weight is actually the least of my concerns. I am mostly curious about the flex facing/lacing and the flexible heel of the outsole. Those are the two most intriguing things to me. I’ve historically been a “stiffer is better” kind of guy but recently have been seeing that flex in skates is a hot topic. I barely tie my True’s these days and have felt noticeably better for it. I’m now going down the rabbit hole… 😅
  10. Curious about these skates. There seems to be a trend towards adding flex to skates. For those of you who’ve been on them for a bit now do the flexible heel area and facing make a difference? Is it noticeable?
  11. Can anyone confirm this statement regarding the stiffness of holders?! I’m genuinely curious. Been thinking about trying XS on my True skates and if they are demonstrably stiffer I am even more interested.
  12. I had my Shift holders profiled twice over the course of 3 weeks (8 skates) and could never get comfortable on them. Switched to Tuuks and felt completely normal in 5 mins. I too thought a simple profile would be enough but just didn’t feel right. Also I’m not overly obsessive or even observant about profiles. I usually just buy new Tuuk steel and go.
  13. My red inserts are different thickness. I thought it was something custom because of my feet but starting to suspect it’s just sloppy workmanship. I love my True skates but build quality leaves much to be desired.
  14. Are you referring to the elbows or shoulders? I’m leaning toward CCM FT1 Elbows and Shins.
  15. I tried on both the Vapor 1xLite Elbows and Shins but both felt really uncomfortable. The shins especially. Elbows felt like they would probably break in just fine but the shins did not form to my legs at all and actually felt like they stuck out further than my old Supremes. I’m gonna search for some of those CL shoulders! I have heard good things about the RX3 line of protective. I think they have a trial period for 1 piece of gear so I may give that a go.
