  1. Probably a preference thing. Sakic preferred a soft blade, though I think he was more the exception than the rule.
  2. Not surprised it's popular among defenseman. Letang, Doughty, Eriksson, and OEM adopted it pretty early on. Younger guys must've just followed suit.
  3. I noticed that too. Maybe Sakic just made some general suggestions and Holmes used those to actually shape the blade? Kinda like how Jordan might've had general concepts or requests for his shoes but Tinker Hatfield was the actual designer?
  4. Super interesting interview with one of the creators. This guys channel is pretty awesome too. He does quick and to the point reviews of old shafts and sticks. From what I can tell he's a former pro and he has seemingly an encyclopedic knowledge and a HUGE collection. https://youtu.be/qqvJNKOyA3E https://youtu.be/s4gHwEnaTro
  5. You don't need anything special, just generic hockey suspenders like these https://www.icewarehouse.com/Suspenders__Garter_Belts__Pant_Belts/catpage-ICEPLYACC.html I've been using suspenders for years. I'd say try em out for ten bucks before investing in new pants/girdles unless u really want a certain model or something.
  6. People with good hands 😁 Chippa - any reason you went with Shift instead of Gepetto/prostockhockeysticks?
  7. Brian Leetch too. Couldn't find the article, but remember reading bout him scoffing at the idea that stiffer skates could make him skate better. To each his own.
  8. You're right, it was in the middle. And I think they did claim energy transfer from a "rebound" effect. I can kind of see how having this near the toes might be better for toe flick, but I'm no engineer. Skeptic, yes. Engineer, no. I just feel it's fishy when a gimmick from the past is brought back w/ a "twist". Again, I could probably be wrong b/c I have no education or experience with physics, but we'll see. Who knows, maybe there really is a place on the pizza where no one's thought to put extra cheese....in all seriousness I suspect playing with holder/steel stiffness will come down to personal preference; for example, some pro's preferred Tuuk + b/c they were soft, some pro's preferred ICM's b/c they're stiff, etc. I guess where companies put the flex is gonna be like how they shape the bottom third of the stick shaft; tapered, eliptical, saber taber, reebok "o" holes, etc.
  9. Don't be sorry. I respect that you took the time to research and respond.
  10. How is this different from Easton's Parabolic steel from like 15 years ago.
  11. As a member, what do I get out this positive relationship with manufacturers? Not trying to be disrepectful. Ive been a long time member as well and have found myself coming here less and less. I think ive been compelled to post or reply maybe 3 or 4 times in the last few years.
  12. Totally forgot, the tech goes back even further In all honesty though, those new prototypes are pretty sexy.
  13. Glad to see Bauer bringing back that CCM DST and Nike Quest Speedwrap tech.
