  1. More posts on social media like Instagram -- like and follow, with a giveaway for a ModSquad hat or other product? AMA on Reddit with JR? AMA here with equipment manufacturers? The Athletic had some great articles when speaking with trainers and operations managers. Very interesting stuff. ModSquad stickers for our helmets to bring more exposure? Sticky posts explaining skate sharpening, stick curves, curves? Youtube content? JR visits the local used equipment store to try old stuff...
  2. Worth it. Great article today on Warrior and Adam Oates: https://theathletic.com/553200/2018/10/02/blade-whisperers-on-ice-tests-and-a-tijuana-trip-how-an-nhl-player-is-fitted-with-the-perfect-stick/
  3. Agreed on all points. The low kick is an improvement on the QRL.
  4. I think backup job is Sparks to lose after his ridiculous AHL season. Grundstrom could be a 4th liner but I don't think he will make it this year. Johnson was a beast during AHL playoffs. Trevor Moore was also a valuable asset, he could be a Babcock guy for the 4th line. I think they will give Holl a chance for the bottom 3 pairing with Marincin. They were really good together.
  5. Huge thank-you to Warrior and JR for the beautiful stick. Also kudos to Renfrew for the tape. Also appreciate the white QREdge hat from Warrior. Me: 5'9, 155 Stick: LH, 70 Flex, Backstrom Tape: Heel to toe Position: W/C Location: Toronto Level: B to C, 4-5 times a week Recent Sticks Used: Warrior QRL, QR1 Warrior AK27 Bauer 1N (2017) Bauer 1X (2016) True XC9 ACF First Impressions: I return home to find a huge box on my front door. This is after checking my mailbox everyday for a package slip. I take some pictures for social media for Warrior. I also do an unboxing video which turns out to be a really sad one as I received a righty instead of a lefty. Briefly contemplated learning to shoot right because the stick felt so great. After some panic, an email and a quick call to Warrior, a replacement was sent out. Two days later I return home to find a huge box on my front door. I rip it open and find a beautiful QR Edge with the right specs. After a quick tape job with Renfrew on the blade and Renfrew grip tape on the top, I play around with the green biscuit on my floor. I was hoping to test the QREdge, QRL and QR1 versus the 1N and XC9 with a radar gun but I just moved and haven't purchased a new net yet. This will come later. First Ice Sessions: The stick feels light and balanced. The Edge taper is beautiful -- it was actually love at first sight over half a year ago when I had my first sighting (I can talk about this now?). The colour scheme of blue/orange and black complement each other very well. But enough about aesthetics... Blade/Receiving Passes: I agree with the other reviewer comments. It's not stiff so I need an extra bit of care to receive hard passes. Again, in the hands of a more accomplished player I believe it will be a lesser point. But hey, this stick is about shooting -- and shooting quick. Passing: Quick release passes rocket off this with a little hop. Minimums Carbon 1200 makes it lighter and stronger than previous editions. Shooting: This stick loads quickly and gives a great release. You're able to feel the sling of the puck just fly off the blade and hit the target. I feel like Warrior improved an already wonderful stick in the QRL. Quick load, quick release. I placed around 250-300 shots during the open ice session. I admit I wasn't able to load it properly every time (user error) but in the hands of a true sniper this stick will give the edge. I felt snappers and wristers came off with ease. It's like a gradual evolution of the QR1 --> QRL to QREdge. Shaft/Durability: It feels strong, and I have no doubt it will last longer than the QRL and will be able to take abuse from opposing players. I'm interested in how long the toe will last. Overall: I have one QRL left so I'm going to buy more of the QREdges in the same flex/pattern. Great job to Warrior. Will add another review in the coming weeks after more games are played.
  6. Thanks for this find. Quite a few skates for $100-200 if you're in the size 9-9.5 category. Goalie gear is all half.
  7. The CCM CLs were nice but lacked some back protection. I have no major complaints with CCM RBZ, really light albeit a bit hot at times. I heard the newer version has better venting. Back protection is good. I tried the 1X pads but they were just too bulky.
  8. Left boot has a squeaky sound when I lean forward on dryland. Loose blade in holder? Loose screw in holder? I barely bunny hop the boards, ugh.
  9. Plekanec! Man our D was ruined. Wish they traded the 2nd and stuff for something instead of TP... hope to see Dommie and Mango (aka Johnson) back for game 2.
  10. I take the Bruins over the Lightning. Sure they have arguably the best line in the league but the Leaves have three and possibly four if they let Johnny play. Goaltending is the wild card. Bruins played the most games in last stretch and Leafs least. *forgot about the "it was 4-1 game" already*
  11. Nice grip and hockey equipment lugger. Time for a name change to IPv3Threely
  12. Little late to this party but my 2 cents as I made the switch recently. I picked up the MX3 (medium) a while back but kept on going back to the APX2s (small) because I couldn't get used to the tightness of the MX3. I got over it by wearing them for a 3 hour stick and puck. I only had to adjust the thigh pants to make them looser . No issues with tail bone protection. I'm 5'10 and 160. Only concern is the foam liner inside the Bauer shell is falling apart due to the velcro from the girdle rubbing on it. I don't think the MX3 will last a long time.
  13. I would contact their support, they are pretty good and reply within 24 hours. Send many pictures and circle problem areas. I had tightness in the toes too but it gradually went away.
