  1. Yeah, it's getting old fast. Those 10:30 games when it's 15 degrees out are especially bad. Although it did get me to try a full length lower base layer, which I gotta say is pretty damn comfortable.
  2. I got my STX RX3 shoulders last night. They certainly are light and form fitting. With the exception of the bicep guards, the overall bulk of the pad doesn’t seem to be any more or less bulky than my Stealth CX7.0’s. They look to be a decent set of shoulders for the money. The 14 day trial and price was enough to get me to give them a go.
  3. There's an old saying, it's not the hammer, it's the carpenter. IMO, kick point has zero impact on where the puck ends up, i.e. low or high. That's more a technique. Some patterns make certain things easier. For example, open face patterns help the user get the puck up high but it won't do it for you. Also, there is no right or wrong, better or worse when it comes to curves paired with kick points. A hockey stick is a tool. Some tools make jobs easier, others can make them a bit more difficult. You aren't looking for the best tool, you're looking for the tool that best suits you. My recommendation to all new players is a mid kick P88.
  4. I recently bought an AX9 pro stock from IW. I got the 75 which is what I usually use. It felt a bit whipper than other 75 flex sticks. If I were buy another, I'd look to jump up to an 80. Really nice stick, loved the look. Blade was maybe a bit too stiff for my liking. Unfortunately, the custom Hornqvist pattern just wasn't for me so I had to find it a new home.
  5. To me the big thing there is the tendon guard. Could the vapor be getting it's own flexible tendon guard??
  6. Yeah, that's what I figured. Your list prompted me to check out the STX shoulders, which I ended up buying. They looked very CL/RBZ like. As for the availability of RBZ gear. You see some here and there but very hit or miss. Yeah, the QLT was pretty disappointing. Seemed like a cost reduced RBZ line to me. Glad CCM got things back on track with the FT1.
  7. The only shins I've ever worn where I really didn't need tape. I might break mine out again. They were shelved in favor of the Tacks due to the liners wearing away around the knee caps. Which was my only real gripe.
  8. Sorry guys. I must have ditched it. I definitely used easton blades around then and I do recall euro 'something' on one of them. Based on what I used back then, it was a giant mid curve, like a Coffey.
  9. IMO the conversation starts and ends with the RBZ and or the CL lines. Not sure about the pants.
  10. I think I have a Euro Tip curve in the garage. I'll check when I get home.
  11. Cant tell if that was tongue and check or not. If not, I am pretty confident every single player in the NHL would be using that "special" profile.
  12. True offers a 5 lie P92 at retail, TC2.5, CCM and Warrior both offer something similar to the 92 with a 5-ish lie.
  13. @JAY_4114 stick to retail curves even when buying pro stocks. Custom player patterns are hit or miss. I'd say go with a P92. Everyone offers one and they are super easy to find. Well, unless you want a bauer p92 with a 5 lie... The Marner pro stocks I have seen look like P92's, sorry TC2's.
  14. Sounds like your footbed or innersole is what's moving. If you want to reduce the skates volume try some SuperFeet yellow. You'll need to re-bake the skates afterwards.
