  1. Did I read on here, maybe in SDcopp's LTR, that the CA9s will make you be lower to the ground than Mission/Bauer, mainly because of the need to fit the all 80 setup? That means I'll have to cut all my sticks. Wondering how much of a drop it is?
  2. Hockeymonkey carries Alkali, maybe the store in Woodbridge will have them. I'll probably be goin there over the Holiday, I'll let you know if I see them.
  3. Bout time! And I'm just about due for new skates! I hope my local retailers carry you guys, I'm definitely going to have to try them on first since they're new.
  4. Ive skated in a few brands in the 20+ years Ive been playing roller hockey, but always seemed to prefer and come back to Mission. While Justin was there it was very apparent he stood behind the product, and as a consumer and a salesman myself, thats huge. He earned my loyalty. Now this Alkali brand is his baby, so if he supported Mission so well, I would imagine hed pour everything he had into his own company. It will be worth it to check out the Alkali products. I would say fit is more important than light weight, especially since I have such difficult feet to work with. If Alkali can deliver both, its win-win. Justin, you're saying this will be a unique skate. Can you make a basic comparison in terms of fit to other brands? Example: someone with wide forefeet and thin ankles fit well in Ccm boots, or so Ive heard. Are the Alkali boots similar to anything else so we have an idea if they'll be a good fit for particular feet?
  5. I think they look like the Mission Wicked series looked like a few years ago; wicked 1, wicked 3, wicked 5, etc. The ones that were cuttin into everyone's ankles. I liked the looks of those, and the looks if the Alkali skates. As long as they dont cut into my ankles, I will give them a shot. I supported Justin when he was at Mission and Ill support him now.
  6. Glad to see it. I'm a "friend" on Facebook as well. Interested to see what exactly Armada has Cooke-ing. When will we know more about what products Armada is offering?
  7. I recently got a Dolo Spyne Savard as a replacement for a stick I broke and although listed as a 4, it felt and played identical to my Zetterberg 5 SE16. I will say that my Stamkos 5 T1 and Malkin 5 X60 felt and played slightly higher, like maybe a 5 1/2. Not sure why because they looked similar in profile to my other 5s. I think it has something to do with the a squarish heel on the Bauers.
  8. I was thinking the same thing. Looks even, good work, but might feel off at first. Lean too far forward or back and you're off kilter.
  9. Nice work with the custom paint job. I liked my Codes. Watch out for those Genesis wheels though, the hubs crack. Seemed to crack at the worst time for me too. Don't know if those are the 2nd generation Gens though; I think Labeda supposedly corrected the defect. Never took the chance to find out though. Switched to some Rink Rat mini cores at that time. Where'd you get that skate anyway? I had my Codes at least 3 years ago, maybe longer.
  10. Ha, good points. They could release a tapered shaft and just call it the U+ Taper. Whatever...I just really liked my V130.
  11. How come no shafts? I'd definitely like to see a U CL shaft, even an OctoLite. I have a V130 that is still one of my all time favorite shafts. The thing just keeps going and at this point I think I'm going to have to forcefully retire it or else it will never go away.
  12. Hespeler skates Chadd??? Good eye, I bought those for my wife a long time ago. She wore them twice and they've been in my closet ever since. Well I hope those aren't her Sundin Hespeler Pro gloves hanging too!
