  1. Did you buy the same size? Just from a length perspective a 50k fits a half size bigger than the 80k. I.e a 6.5 50K = 7.0 80K
  2. Brand new, asking $65 shipped gifted within the US. https://imgur.com/a/BScZDr7
  3. To be fair - gear has stagnated completely and either innovation is at an all time low, or we’ve reached a point of diminishing returns on currently available materials. I have a hard time getting excited about CCM moving their logo from the bottom of the Ribcore shaft to the top, or Bauer adding different pops of chrome every year and calling it a new stick. Protective hasn’t really gone anywhere in about 8 years since the CL line released and skates, aside from steel/holder enhancements haven’t really gone anywhere aside from perhaps better baking results. We’ve also seen a decline in unique products. We’ve been P92/P28/P88’ed to death and quirky stuff like custom Franchise gloves have completely disappeared. Did I also mention that all of this stuff has been increasing in price at an absurd rate? It’s hard to generate buzz when there is nothing to buzz about. /rant.
  4. LOL @the_game. To be fair those T-Flex blades were unreal and the puck absolutely exploded off of them so I totally get it. It’s hard to decouple what could be attributed to the blade itself vs kickpoint. IIRC consensus on here (or was it Corebeam at that point?) was that the Synthesis blades felt like a dead fish.
  5. It will probably feel closer to a Synthesis or Synergy did back in the day. Pretty sure the Synthesis was just a longer T-Flex with no change to the kickpoint.
  6. I’m only using pro stock sticks at this point because of the price differential for top of the line - I rarely if ever break sticks inside 30 days. I’ll use pro stock gloves as well if a deal presents itself but otherwise I’m using all retail. Pro stock protective and skates are mostly way overbuilt for beer league.
  7. Sounds like a great deal for them, and an absolutely terrible one for you - especially in the current environment. Team orders were always paid up front in my experience.
  8. NHL teams are obviously not using this customizer nor are they placing orders through the same website as the general public. The idea is that this would help facilitate cost effective customs at scale and no longer support things like “Hossa cuff, shortened gussets, Franchise dressed like an AX1” etc etc etc from back in the day.
  9. 100000000000% People forget the fact that the Synergy was basically a T-Flex with epoxy where the shaft and blade connect.
  10. The RBZ pants (HP45) and shoulder pads. After all the hype and hunting around the internet trying to find them, they were super meh. Obviously both pieces are incredibly light - but they didn’t feel like they moved well at all or had good ergonomics/break in compared to my very old Vapor stuff.
  11. The only company that made a true intermediate blade was Easton with the blue hosel Synthesis blade to be paired with their intermediate shaft. Otherwise, 99% of intermediate shafts took senior blades.
  12. Stealth CNT Drury 85 Anything Styles/Roenick pro from back in the day, ideally the OG Stealth Jofa 8060 shins
  13. I’m a big frankenpad guy - top of the line chest and bicep piece with shoulder caps from a $30 entry level model. Most of the repalm/repair places can do this relatively easily. I agree with @psulion22 in that if I had to pick anything off the rack it would be the Vapor line. I had the “holy grail” CCM U+ CLs recently and felt like a linebacker in those shoulder caps.
  14. I remember loving the metal tipped laces on my old Bauer 7000s back in high school - until they somehow came into contact with my steel and absolutely destroyed my sharpening.
