  1. Well it’s also pretty readily available on pro stock sticks from CCM as well. The pro shops near me who handle any kind of bookings from CCM were able to order it in no problem.
  2. I also think a major factor is how “main stream” access to gear has become. PSH is a prime example of someone that absolutely pillaged the pro stock gear market, which in the early 2000’s was one of the best parts of this site, finding out when gear sales were asking someone to try to grab you something etc etc since everyone has pretty much the same access to gear available online now, it’s really made acquiring it less exciting, at least for me. still love this community though and have been lucky enough to demo gear in the past and give reviews. It’s still a great place.
  3. Why not just polish the floor to a smoother surface? Obviously not perfect but it would probably be a good start
  4. On 2K someone posted that their pro stock with that code had extremely rounded corners, comparable to the ccm C shaft shape. Guess as more become available more people will post their findings.
  5. Cant imagine what you must have been doing for the better part of the last decade if 390g is the sweet spot. Sticks that light have only been around for the last 3-4 years, what were you using before?
  6. I have never had an issue getting my hands on team issue sticks, whether it be online or at the LHS. CCM’s LK build sticks are great value. Recently found a Nexus team stick from this season with simple P92 in the name bar and so far it feels miles better than any previous Bauer team stick
  7. Your friend should focus on balance rather than weight. I’ll take a balanced stick at 430 gr over a stick at 370 gr that has me nervous to carry the puck because it might snap. He might find a cheaper factory in China this way too.
  8. That grassroots targeted demographic must be in the plans for Q2
  9. I am extremely intrigued by the new top end Tackla girdle that has been mentioned on this board. Would love to hear more about it from someone who has used it
  10. Bauer reaching peak troll level with this. Classic.
  11. Not having seen the code on his stick but basing it off the team that I'm involved with this will be a true ADV. They arent going through the effort of redressing older batches with newer graphics to the extent Bauer used to.
  12. ah yes, the classic "we pay you to wear our helmets even if they dont fit your head properly" see also Matthews
  13. *Trilage had entered the chat*
  14. I still have durability concerns with the holder, same as when the Edge holder came out. I don't see them being a big hit right away at retail. Wouldn't expect many apart from people in this thread to change out the holders on their Bauer's or CCM's. How the equipment guys use them, at least here it hasn't been enough to sway many guys. I look forward to what their approach is once they go live.
  15. And I'm all for this as well, but even WNBA players are complaining that even while the NBA loses money by giving them a platform they want more. I sense a similar sentiment here in that women's hockey wants the NHL to eventually step up and build a league, but it has to be on their terms, which doesnt entirely make sense to me.
  16. while I agree that neither women's league has a sparkling track record in how their leagues are run, there is no leverage in threatening a boycott or strike because not enough people give a shit about the sport. I have the upmost respect for anybody trying to make a living playing sports in the grinder leagues whether Male or female, but them demanding to be paid or supported when they offer next to nothing in terms of collateral is probably the main deterrent in this situation. The NBA loses millions trying to support the WNBA every year, I cant blame the NHL for waiting to see how this plays out because the return isnt there for them. They're asking for someone to pay their way when at this point in time the product cant even pay for itself, I'm not sure who would consider that a viable investment right now.
  17. not to mention custom builds likely arent put together the same way retail sticks are.. hence all the different builds.
  18. Once again though, your retailer should be doing all this. When I was in the shop I had one pair get sent back. I took down every detail of what the issues were and was lucky enough that the size of the skate allowed me to try it on to feel first hand what he was feeling to get a better idea. Obviously this wont always be the case. From there I contacted True, explaining the issues, sent them pictures and discussed what the options were in terms of adjustments/having them remade. This info was directly translated to the customer and his dad (JR player from east coast, dad wasnt in town but was paying) and then discussed what we were trying, a rough timeline and an overall idea of where we were in the process. When I spoke with True I received a name to ask for that would be able to give me updates. I had updates for the customer about every 2 days until completion. Anybody that is doing this on their own without a shops help, you're either doing it wrong or your shop isnt doing their part. Of course True doesn't want to deal with each customer on an individual basis. Our relationship and business was steady enough with them that they could update me with everything we had on order on a weekly basis so I could update our customers. Sorry for the vent. People on here seem extremely misconstrued on the process of getting these made and I think are not holding their LHS responsible for their poor customer service and or inexperience/laziness in the process.
  19. keep in mind the quality of Nexus team gloves, as with the vapor ones are a mid range quality at best.
  20. literally under the "pucks" category. https://www.inglasco.com/pages/series/CUSTOM/62
  21. inglasco has 965's directly available on their site.
  22. You touched on it with the apparel, but I agree that the "Shop" option is kind of in the background of this site. I personally would love a MSH hoodie to wear around the shop I work at. I'm a member on a similar style forum but for baseball/softball players, and they sometimes do a run on exclusive model gloves but only if the demand is there. They recently did a line of custom ball gloves from Wilson with specs that are unavailable on the customizer but a minimum commitment of deposits had to be put down before the order was placed and the extras were sold in their shop. Something like that could be cool especially with some of the relationships we have with manufacturers that potentially getting special specs on gloves not available at retail or on customizers would definitely garner some interest. PS I'd also love approval to the shop guys section!
  23. You're misunderstanding. I had his original pair sent back and a new pair in the shop in under 7 days.
