  1. How easy / possible is removing the shot blockers from pro stock gloves? Found a pair of gloves I want but they have those big shot blockers on them and i loathe them and how they look. Want to know before I drop what feels like $10,000 CDN on them.
  2. Been on a bit of a skate journey in the last few months. Scored a pair of AS3s in like June played 1 game they were a bit too tight at sz 8 and when I went to rebake they over heated them and I kind put them on like an ape and they literally crumpled under me. Think an accordion in the heel area. I bought another pair of sz 8s and they were even shorter and after 5 minutes on the ice I returned them. I picked up a fit 2 3X pro in 7.5 and Ive since sold them because I wasnt a fan. I was always a vapor fan but before the new fit system I couldnt fit into them. Now, Im a big guy. Im about 250lbs and fairly muscular but not ripped by any means. The 3x pro felt kind of mushy to me and soft. According to a guy at the store the footbed is 'soft' but the rest of the boot is on the stiffer side for Bauer atleast. The last skate I loved was my MX3s that I got when ever they came out when I was a younger man and also 190lbs. I loved those skates but took a long lay off and sold them in the middle period. Im likely going to grab a pair of the ASVs in the next few months as the current SMU tacks I have (gen 2) are just brutal on my feet and always caused me a bit of a problem. My feet have gotten wider over time (some supplement involved), so Im wondering if the wide would be the way to go. Would that ASV give me a similar feel fit and stiffness wise to my ols MX3s? Would the current Supreme line be equally as stiff and firm?
  3. Im mulling a move from Toronto to Barrie for the many obvious reasons. I play in the ASHL down here and at Chesswood and have had some interesting experiences. Im looking for some candid tales of how the league is. Both skill level, behavioral, and any other information would be greatly appreciated. If anyone runs a team up there if you could hit me up directly as I plan to move in the winter I would greatly appreciate that to.
  4. With the AS3 line going on sale Im about a week away from nabbing some new wheels. Im trying to choose between the AS3 and the AS3 pro. I miss when we had the catalogues on the forum but thats what ever at this point. How different are the skates? I know the steel is different but Ill be buying new step anyway so lets remove that. From a materials, weight, and moldability perspective how different or similar are we? Thanks in advance boys.
  5. Joined the blade gang. Buying a True shaft and ABS blade for some fun at the ball hockey rink by my house.
  6. This is actually some very helpful information, thanks bud.
  7. Miller, I get it. Ive worked in shops and fitted for years and been a member forever, Im just kinda stuck in this lol.
  8. I dont know how to describe this better but the widest part of the foot just bellow the toes. Its not always and its usually barely at all. I think im just lookjing for exscuses for why the 8 wide in the inhalers will work out lol
  9. To be frank, I really like the look of the Inhalers with the white. So im more so seeking information on if Im likely to face issues with the E width vs the D i play with. I do get some pain in my feet in my CCMS, but I think im just somewhere between D and E, and how tight I tie my skates is a big part of that.
  10. Looking to get some inhalers for rolling around in the summer and some pick up rolley hockey. I wear an 8D tack, but Ill be very honet when saying I love the white of the inhalers. Bauer.com has them in an 8E, am I playing with fire with the extra width? What are some better options in that CCM tack fit?
  11. I was considering converting my current tacks and buying the AS1 now that the price is down a bit. I love near yorkdale and the outdoor rink there now has a lock on the cages so Im just suuuuper bored, and wont be able to get someone to install a chasis anyway. Is there a winner in the mars v. sprung debate?
  12. Seems like CCM hasnt updated their inline skates in a while, and with this lock down im going crazy having so little to do. Whos making an inline skate with as close to the fit of a CCM Tack as possible? I believe the Missions and Alkalines are 'supreme', but I need something slightly deeper ala the tack.
  13. Original Eastern Synergy. I was 13 and it was the newest thing and I got my grandparents to buy it.
  14. Anyone know when the Oilers sale is?
