  1. Yeah, for current retail curves, you have your choice of anything you want, as long as it’s a p92, p88, or p28. Companies have drastically cut down on offerings to reduce over stock and make production less expensive. People on here really like the company Pro Stock Hockey Sticks. It’s not actual prostock stuff, but custom sticks that you can get with a lot of unique curves, including the beloved Drury. They even have an option for stick build that’s billed as being “classic Easton.” https://prostockhockeysticks.com The guy who runs it is an absolute stick nerd and has dialed in a lot of aspects, and seems to do this out of love and fandom. He’s not just some tech dad trying to make beer money selling bulk sticks out of his garage There are other internet companies that offer this cheaper custom option, but they have mixed reviews. And by mixed I mean mostly bad, except for people whose number one priority is price.
  2. These are the best tech in hockey that no longer exists.
  3. Boy, it’s almost like they “improved” a product that creates breakages that aren’t easily fixable so you have to just buy a new product when that part breaks before the skate breaks down. Shocked. I imagine if enough people complain, they’ll address it, like how they addressed the issue with steel gradually loosening in Edge holders. That’s not a problem anymore, right?
  4. https://www.thehockeyshop.com/en-us/products/true-ax7-senior-hockey-stick?variant=32453122195522 It says it’s available in 75 and 85, in both right and left. Someone take a flyer on this and post pics. They had an Easton Iginla clone at some point that was labeled IC. So, maybe it’s just that renamed?
  5. I’ve had them repaired at local shops twice, and it was like $20, ten years ago. Mine weren’t all the way off, just ripped(?) partially through right where it connects to the boot. Still not sure what random bad luck made it happen. It was like twice in a year on two different skates. I don’t use the tendon guard to take them on or off. Never had it happen since.
  6. I swear Jagr wore his socks over his heels for a bit, but I can’t find any pics of it.
  7. Anyone ever find any info on this? I saw a MC3 curve listed on a Source for Sports page. MC2 was a pm9.
  8. Uh, you don’t use spray insulation on your steel to dampen vibrations and get better power transfer? Dusty.
  9. And, maybe someone with kids can chime in, but is anyone under 30 listening to Justin Bieber? They might as well have Neil Young design the jerseys.
  10. I’m an open minded and progressive guy in most of my life. But, every time a new next gen type jersey comes out I am a belligerent old man yelling about “kids these days” and “hell in a hand basket.”
  11. My friend loved his NXG, and has been bouncing around trying to recreate that experience. What’s the current/recent equivalent of that? I think Supremes started changing not long after that, right? MX3 felt like it was not much loved, and with the 1S they started moving the kickpoint up. Unless my memory is all wrong.
  12. A few wraps of hockey tape square around the buttend of the shaft, and that’s it. Shafts are grippy enough. This has really cut down on wear on my gloves.
  13. FWIW, hockey monkey doesn’t care about all the small shops they have run out of business. I wouldn’t feel the least bit bad milking every possible thing out of them without a second thought. These giant stores can’t undercut local shops and fall back on “just capitalism bro, nothing personal,” and then cry foul when consumers do the same thing to them. Fuck ‘em.
  14. Can we talk about the person walking around in public wearing their adult league jersey and adidas track pants? Is Korn headlining Let’s Play Hockey this year?
  15. Did you buy them, or just try them on, or borrow someone’s to try?
