  2. Your kid must have huge calves, or at least a very wide shin, cuz i have 16,5” calves and see the Jetspeed Ft shins as my next pair of shin guards once my Nexus 1000 shins give up.. I really like the fit of the Ft4 and Ft6 shin guards. You should check out Warrior’s alpha series shins. My son has the older Alpha Dx shin guards and love them. He blocks shots quite frequently since he plays D, and i havent heard anything negative yet. Newer Vapor shins on the other hand fit really wierd and lack protection on the sides down towards the ankle..
  3. When my son was 9 he skated in Bauer Nexus n7000, from there we went to CCM tacks 9370, and now when he is 11 he skates in Bauer Supreme 190’s.. I was a little bit unsure if the supremes would be too stiff, but when we skipped the second eyelet from the top he had no problem flexing his ankels and so on… My son does most of his dryland stickhandling exercises standing on a balance board so he has developed quite strong ankles allready.
  4. There are no shoulder pads that fit a bigger than average ”frame”, so if you have broad shoulders or a bigger chest or just have more muscle or fat than the ”normal” hockey player, all shoulder pads will fit wrong or look wrong on you.. I like lifting weights, and have been hitting the iron for over 25 years so yeah, all shoulder pads have a wierd fit on me and make me look like a linebacker when the jersey goes on. Not even customizing of the pads will change that.. When you get past the whole look thing, or how you think or want the pads to make you look its all about fit and protection. CCM have always fitted me better, Bauer shoulders are a no go for me. My top picks are Ccm Rbz 130 or Ccm Qlt 270. Enough protection for my style and level of the game.
  5. I still use the grey ones! 😂 iv’e tried the yellow ones but for me the grey ones worked better.. Found a swedish retailer a few years ago who still had a few grey pairs (size E) in stock.. So i bought them all.. I have like 8 pairs left, so i think i never have to buy skate insoles again 😄
  6. Yeah, but still no way near the stiffness of the Easton CXN holder.. Which means i still have to search eBay weekly to grow my stock of sz 7 CXN holders and steel..
  7. First? There is 6 more helmets that has recived 5 stars before this fugly thing!!??
  8. Here in Europe there is a special edition of the Tacks AS-V pro called ASV-Pro NHL spec.. Would say it’s even more protective than AS-V pro. If you prefer Bauer over CCM i would go for Bauer Pro Series shoulder pads.
  9. Depends on pitch and hollow.. Try a more shallow hollow and you wont notice such a big difference. With same hollow on both profiles i sometime felt that my heel got caught in the ice with elipse, I went from 38mm hollow on Quad 1 to 41mm hollow on Elipse 1
  10. Ok, so Elipse 2 would be ok then.. as i said, I did not notice any big difference between the 2.. Before, i had Zuperior, and it was also similar.. I spoke to my coaching collegue earlier today, and he ran Quad 2 before, and now he is on elipse. He said that he felt more stable and had better glide on quad, while beeing able to pivot and turn tighter with the elipse. Straight ahead speed was better with quad than elipse. he agreed with me on the hollow. Need to have less hollow depth with elipse.
  11. What skate size do you have? I’m on elipse 1 on 7.5 makos.. had quad 1 before. Feel more pitched forward with elipse, other than that, i dont feel much difference.. also i went from 38mm to 41mm hollow when switching from quad to elipse. Felt i had to much bite on elipse with 38mm hollow.
  12. -Does the new skate fit the same as the old one? Or is the fit of the new skate perhaps better? Skate depth, stiffness etc.. -Can you flex forward more in the new skate? -Is the new skate (boot) pitched different than the old one, or do you have a different insole? there are many factors to be considered!
  13. Yeah, i guess i have to order them and see if they fit or not.. The store that has the Vapor 3x, sz 7, fit3 offer free shipping on orders over 2000sek (~200$), and 1 free return, so i will not loose any money on shipping fees if they dont fit..
  14. I actually think the EE vapors are longer. I also have a pair of Nexus N7000 in 7.5D. none of the skates (vapors EE or Nexus) compresses my feet and fit nicely width wise but the Nexus skates fit much shorter than the vapors.. i should have changed the topic title to lenght difference between Mako W width and Vapor fit3..
  15. Hi guys! I have these Bauer Vapor x3.7 skates in 7.5EE.. Fit is kinda ok, but since the skates was broken in i cant feel the toecap any more, and i have begun to notice slight lacebite signs on my ankle. Iv’e found a shop in Sweden that has Vapor 3x skates on closeout. But the shop does not have any sz 7.5 left in stock. How much difference in lenght is there between Vapor 7.5EE vs Vapor 7 fit3? it feels like a EE Vapor is almost a half size bigger than the D width Vapor. Before i bought the Vapor x3.7s i was in makos 7.5W. How will newer Vapors fit lenghtwise compared to them makos?
