  1. Bringing back an oldie... I am starting to see pro-stock version on sideline for reasonable money, sub $300US. I'm curious if anyone has tried them yet and what are your thoughts. I'm currently wearing a Tacks 710 that's getting a bit mangy on the inside.
  2. I'd stick with the pattern and change the flex. Or I'd do a custom order and resell a few.
  3. Are you sure that's not just the pre order period? It seems really odd. If that is the case. Load up on FT5's.
  4. The FT4 pro shoulders are a fantastic piece of gear. They're exactly what a modern hockey shoulder pad should be. My big disappointment with the FT4 line were the elbows. I pre-ordered a pair and when they arrived the overall fit was good they were just way too short. I might give the FT6's a try.
  5. I believe this is the case as well. It seems as though Bauer only went after companies that were a sizable threat like Step and Tyden. You gotta pick your fights. We'll see if Bauer has learned from their past mistakes.
  6. Probably because it's not really needed. Between socks and proper length pants it's not an issue for the majority of players. And it's added cost that most would cut off with the tags.
  7. Sigh.... There is a lot crap in this thread that really bothers me. Some comments approach Facebook level garbage. I'm not gonna get into it though. My question is simple. Who here has tried full customs from all three brands? Their input would be relevant in answering the OP's question. Though, which is better, is somewhat vague. All other comments are recommendations based of personal bias and therefore should be ignored.
  8. Not readily available at retail. Like Step. That may not seem like a huge deal but it will be if you break a runner. @BeflarI'd opt for the CCM XS holder with Step Blacksteel. Swapping steel may not be as fast as the Edge holder but it's easier. If the lock mechanism breaks you can replace it without removing the holder. Something worth noting, Step has a 1 year warranty on all their steel. If you break a blade, which I did, they send you a new set.
  9. Don't forget the 50 pack of Charmin. My point from the start. Custom skates are made to your specs and foot. If made correctly why would you be unhappy. In the off chance you are, they're your specs so it's not the companies fault. It's like a salad bar. Don't get pissed at the restaurant if you don't like the salad YOU made.
  10. Not sure what Costco has to do with this, but it should be noted that you pay to shop at Costco. I am pretty sure you aren't buying custom made items from them. The question here is, why would you go custom to "try" them??? Going retail where you have the guarantee makes way more sense. You can always return them, then go custom. BTW, True isn't going to do what you expect CCM to do. Yes, they will remake them if they are off, but you can't just walk away and get your money back.
  11. Retail level. The ones I have talked to said it was mostly due to the 90 day guarantee.
  12. It was a little of both. Look like it was a good call on their part. I see way more players in CCM now than I did 3-5 years ago. That makes zero sense. You don't buy custom skates to "try" them and it's not like they can reuse/resell a custom skate.
  13. As I understand it, yes. Each pair is covered under the 90 day satisfaction guarantee. If you're buying multiple pairs. You may want to double check the wording of the guarantee to be safe. Also, I believe only the initial purchase is covered. If you exchange them the newer pair is NOT covered.
  14. Yup yup. 64" sticks are not their own beast. It's a standard length shaft with a 4" extension added.
  15. Wow, impressive. Thanks for posting Ben.
