  1. Oh I know. I had that discussion with him years ago. I meant the repairs I wanted to try tackling on my current gloves. That I know he could do but I wouldn't want to waste his time with something I think I can learn.
  2. God that commercial is so 90s haha. Sewing machine and some sort of pressure gun to inject the protective layer inserts. Thumbs look like a nightmare. Life and a career of traveling just takes up so much mental space and time. I'm just looking to do repairs myself, not build a glove. Maybe reskin a leather to nylon at some point but I highly doubt I'd be able to manage that. If I could, I would. It's no secret the GX9500 is my favorite glove to some of our longstanding members. I figure Pat could probably do that given his time at Warrior but that would be $$ and a large time commitment that isn't worth it, I would assume.
  3. D30 would be interesting to try. That looks like a great place with what I'm looking for. Thank you. Maybe one day I'll be able to convert an entire glove by learning this. Doubtful though.
  4. That's not the right glove, but I understand where you're coming from. I have some other gloves I can use that are newer, so this is just a project for me. I'd rather learn more about this and how to do it myself.
  5. Been a while. I'm looking for info on what type of materials would be best suited for a glove DIY repair, not for palms and gussets. My Easton 800 pros are pretty beat up but they are absolute butter and I can't get rid of them if I can help it. To that end, I know about the different types of foams, outer shell, etc. What I'd like to know is the exact type (if possible) would be ideal for this. Now, I have no disillusions that this won't be perfect and I figure this is something that Pat at CPR could do but I'd like to give it a shot and learn something new. I've got 3 missing PE inserts in the backroll, a couple decent sized tears on the top of the backroll and in a few finger segments, and finally I've got one backroll piece that no longer has foam in it. Now, my assumption is that the shell is Polyester or Nylon and I have no idea what the inner padding could be - VN, EPP, dual density, etc. If anyone has some insight into what would be the way to go for my purposes such as what exactly to get and where to get it, that'd be appreciated. Cheers.
  6. Could add a 1mm shim between the boot and tower, for the pitch as well. A rebake too could potentially help. It's definitely an adjustment coming from any other pair of skates besides VH or Makos.
  7. I wore a Mako I on my left foot and a Mako II on my right foot during a pick up game for funsies once. I barely noticed anything. One bit you might be able to notice is that the Mako II boot feels a lot fuller than the Mako I. In a good way though I think. If the skates are sub $400, buy them.
  8. True has been making an effort to get into stores around here more than VH did. Probably has something to do with that. Got my scans done with no issues by the True folks.
  9. There has been a bunch of stores getting in their scanning tech and other stuff they needed to make their store a fit center recently... so I still think it's a promo of some sort. I doubt they are releasing another skate.
  10. Looks like it's just a promo for their skates to me.
  11. I was one of the largest proponents of the Mako skates, both the I and II when they launched. I skated in the MLX before those. Now having gone through each version of the skate on up to the True version I can say that the fit is largely unchanged. Same wrap, some minor changes such as a taller toe box (at least in my case). Basically, you won't have much to worry about if anything at all. Adjusting on the ice is always varies from person to person.
  12. Officially done with the Makos since I can't find them anymore, and I am on the VH train now. Huge shout out to the crew at TRUE for hooking me up with these. Took less than two weeks from getting scanned to having the skates in my hands. Already baked them and the first skate will be next week which coincidentally will be the first time back on the ice since my season ended too. Can't wait.
  13. If the liner and moldability is remotely close to the Mako or VH then CCM may very well have a winner on their hands. I'm hoping to get to try them on soon.
  14. Give them a shot if you can find your size. I've blocked my fair amount of shots wearing Mako II's, and like any other skate out there if a shot hits you in the 'right spot' it's going to hurt.
