  1. On that note: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/ZDENO-CHARA-WARRIOR-FRANCHISE-BOSTON-BRUINS-NHL-PRO-STOCK-RETURN-HOCKEY-GLOVES-/121016796558?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c2d29c58e http://www.ebay.ca/itm/NEW-WARRIOR-FRANCHISE-TAMPA-BAY-LIGHTNING-NHL-PRO-STOCK-RETURN-HOCKEY-GLOVES-14-/121014908417?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c2d0cf601 http://www.ebay.ca/itm/FILTHY-NEW-WARRIOR-LUXE-ILYA-KOVALCHUK-DEVILS-NHL-PRO-STOCK-RETURN-HOCKEY-GLOVES-/121016040965?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c2d1e3e05 ^^ These gloves were all available as SMU's from hockeysupremacy.com a few weeks ago. They all cost $170. The Charas are still available on that site for that price; the others have sold out. In fairness, I can't guarantee that these are the exact same ones, but it's not exactly rocket science to make the connection. The purple Bauer gloves may not have been misrepresentation, but these certainly are - they're not particularly unique or valuable items - any one of us had the opportunity to buy them if we so chose before they sold out - and they're not 'pro stock,' as they were made for that store, with no intent of ever making it to the players in question. I've never had a problem with T-shirt junkie before, but these items/descriptions/pricing are definitely offside. As far as the pricing concerns in this thread for his other items, I just don't see the issue. The prices are unquestionably high, but anyone selling an item has the right to charge whatever they want for it; just as you, as a consumer, have a right to decide that the price is too high, and not buy it. I've seen items I really liked that he had, and had to pass on them because the price was just too stupid for me to justify, but I don't fault the seller for that - if someone is willing to pay a higher price for an item than I am, he's not wrong to sell it to them instead of me. As long as the items are genuine, and the descriptions are honest, there's nothing wrong with that. Hockey equipment, like any other consumer product, is 'worth' whatever someone is willing to pay for it.
  2. It has as much to do with the shape of your head as anything else. I have a big head (size 7 3/4 or 7 7/8 fitted cap), but also fairly wide/round head. Because of that, I've had a lot of trial and error in trying on helmes. I had good luck with a Jofa 690, and when it needed replacing, I found the Bauer 9500/9900 in an XL works well for me. I couldn't get my head in a 4500, even in an XL if my life depended on it because it's just too narrow. The Bauer 5500 and 7500, same deal. For whatever reason, I find helmets padded with EPP or similar foams work a little better than their VN counterparts. I could wear an XL Reebok 8k for example, but a 4k is a bit tighter squeeze. Ditto the CCM V10 and V08 (I found both of these a bit deep/tall for my head, but that may work better for your head shape). For what it's worth, the Easton S19 in an XL is the only helmet I've ever found to be too big for my head (the L was too small, so I was kind of in between on that one). If you can track down a Mission Intake in a L, it might work for you.
  3. ^^ Oh yeah, that auction I remembered to bid on 20 minutes after it ended.
  4. This is a funny looking XN10... http://www.ebay.ca/itm/tps-XN10-flex-X-STIFF-graphite-hockey-shaft-PROSTOCK-/110815082397?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item19cd17f79d
  5. Part of that is that I think a lot of people don't really know what a skate that 'fits' is supposed to feel like. From my personal experience, I would put on the skate that was 1.5-2 sizes down from my shoe, and there'd be too much space in the toecap, and my heel wasn't really locked in, but I'd never had a properly fitted skate so I didn't really know the difference. They didn't hurt my feet, and they were the 'right' size based on my shoe size, so I figured they were fine. A few years ago I was shopping for my first pair of top-end skates, so I decided that if I was going to spend that kind of money, I was going to make sure I took the time to try on a lot of different models and sizes, and seek out the best possible fit; and I was surprised to find out how badly my old skates fit. I wear size 11 shoes and have fairly normal (maybe a tad on the deep/wide side) feet, and the first time I was fitted properly for a pair of skates, my skate size changed from a 9.5D to a 7-7.5EE in most of the skates I tried on, until I eventually settled on 6.5EE One95's that fit absolutely perfectly after baking. I had never really been fitted by someone who knew what they were doing before, or bothered to try on smaller sizes than reccomended, so I didn't really know that what I needed wasn't a bigger size, but the EE width, and a skate with a fit designed to fit my foot volume-wise.
  6. Are the 1053's a two-piece pant, or one?
  7. Hurt my foot running last week. From what I'm reading online, it sounds like a stress fracture (haven't been able to see a doctor yet). I'm supposed to be going to Boston to play a hockey tournament at the end of April, so sounds like good luck has struck!
  8. Haven't been posted in this thread (or any other one) in a while! Helmet - Nike/Bauer 9500 Shoulders - Some old Coopers that I refuse to replace Elbows - Jofa 9177 Pro Gloves - Nike/Bauer XXXX Pro Pants - Hespeler Classic Lite (in desperate need of replacement, have my eyes on a closeout pair of Easton S15 Motion - I like them, but I can't find any reviews/opinions on them) Shins - Mission Fuel 100 Jock - Itech compression pant/jock combo thing Undershirt - Rbk triple impact with the padding removed (I just bought it for the wrist protection, but since I got the 9177 elbows, I don't need that anymore) Skates - One95's Sticks - Warrior Dolomite DD 85 flex Kovalev, Mission Titanium 85 flex Sundin
  9. Anyone want to guess if this would be possible, or how hard it would be (and what it would involve)?... I'm thinking of buying some pro-stock pants, but they're two-piece pants, and they only have the lowers (and for some reason, it's impossible to find pro-stock pant uppers). I have an old pair of pants that I'd like to cut the top part off of, and convert into uppers for the pro-stock pants. My pants are pretty old, and the exterior them is pretty much ruined/full of holes anyway, so I don't care if I try this and it doesn't work out because my pants can't really be sold/used again anyway.
  10. Brendan Morrison isn't a very big guy, though - I doubt he wears 15" gloves.
  11. Did you put your hockey equipment on at your house for that picture? It looks like you're sitting on an office/desk chair.
  12. Are the Staals 15" or 14"+1? ... Or neither (they look long, but just the cuff part looks long to me, making them exactly the gloves I want [other than colour scheme])
  13. Erik Karlsson... I think I just realized that Kachun is why I can't find any RH pro-stock sticks in Ottawa... What's the flex on those? I know Chris Neil uses an 85 flex, which makes me covet his sticks, but at Karlsson's size, I can't imagine his are very stiff either.
  14. Is that the new-ish one in Kanata (I think I remember you being from Ottawa/near Ottawa)?... I went in there when they opened and they had a lot of pro stock stuff (I remember a pair of Chara's MIA gloves dressed as Missions. They didn't seem that big length-wise, but my hands were swimming in them volume-wise), but I haven't been there since.
  15. The funniest part of this is that it isn't even e-bay!
