  1. They look great! Can you comment on the overall width a bit, specifically heel - midfoot - toe? I'm tempted to order a pair. I have been skating ~6 monthss on Bauer Supremes and my feet hurt everyday, missing my old Graf 727. They were pretty wide and flexible.
  2. For what it's worth, I was/am in the exact same boat. I think I made a post about it not long ago. I ordered a few sticks from prostock hockey: Warrior PP09 and Sherwood W05, personally I prefer the Sherwood W05 overall. I don't know if it's the curve/lie difference so much as that the warriors' blade I received was not stiff at all. I can feel the blade flex a fair amount on snap shots making it very hard to control. Would recommend the Sherwoods.
  3. http://www.ushsho.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=40 If you don't make the school team, Junior Gold is the main alternative as far as I know. Nothing really to be worried about, there's plenty of teams/leagues out there.
  4. I bought skates a few weeks ago in Minneapolis and had a hard time finding sizing in general, I think there was a single pair ofr True's in my size between 3 stores (Ended up with Bauer supremes). Pure hockey locations might have them, I think Westwood in Apple Valley had some as well (obviously call).
  5. I had to Google that name...I don't...uh... My name is a reference to a TV show called Twin Peaks.
  6. Hello, After a decade hiatus from hockey (and hockey gear nerding, I still remember doing the Easton toy drive and getting that yellow synergy grip!), I moved back to Minnesota and picked up the sport again this winter and have been hitting outdoor rinks most evenings. Connected with some old friends to do a spring league and am pumped! I had some trouble buying gear and felt a little out of my element, but just bought some basic stuff so I could start playing. I had a few questions regarding advancements to the gear that I was confused by when purchasing. 1) Stick curves - I played most of my life (kid, high school and club college) using a heel curve, Easton Drury. I picked up a Bauer stick in P28 and am struggling to adjust. What's the reason behind the huge migration towards toe curves? Finding my shots frequently sail and it's difficult to elevate on the backhand. Are toe curves objectively better in some way? 2) Skate Stiffness/Models - I went to my LHS and tried on a bunch of skates and ended up in Supreme 3S for the time being. Is the difference between the whole Bauer Supreme line esssentially stiffness in the high-end models? I found that sort of odd, but he was adament the only difference between S37, 3S, 3S Pro, Ultrasonic was the boot stifness and potentially some weight. 3) Sparx/Skate Sharpening - This seems like a cool device, is this pretty much the standard nowadays rather than a human? I had my skates sharpened to 5/8 and boy did they feel closer to 1/2 or more. Thank you! Formerly MN D Game way back on the old forums (and maybe this one). Also, if you bought some Jofa shin pads and 2 pairs of custom Sandy nylon gloves in 2012 at a garage sale in Minneapolis, there is reward for returning those
