  1. Ive had the TF7s for like a month or six weeks now. They got pretty comfortable quickly. Every once in a while, I feel like I get this extra boost for a stride or two, and feel extra fast. I assume it’s just all my body mechanics lining up correctly, but I’ve never had that with any other skate.
  2. Lots of complaints about some part of the mechanism in edge holders loosening up, and steel clicking and moving.
  3. If flex thumb matters to you, I’ve had trouble finding CCMs with flex thumbs. Seems like more of them are rigid. Some people don’t care, or are happy to cut the thumb loops, but the non-flexing thumb is a deal breaker for me.
  4. Imagine being the person who needs so much control and petty power in their life they are mandating what color of laces and helmets mite players must wear.
  5. What’s the difference between bladder molded vs compression molded?
  6. My wife has worn the derby rainbow laces in her skates for years. She says they are “very waxed.” She gets them from the derby laces store on Amazon.
  7. This isn’t what you were asking at all, but if you post about what you didn’t like about newer sticks you picked up vs the Eastons, people might be able to direct you to a more recent stick that feels the way you prefer Unless you have a giant quiver of Eastons, and won’t run out soon, in which case, post pics!
  8. They should let you bake them as part of the try on process.
  9. I’d get the 7.5. “Feathering” is what you want when they are broken in. These will break in with baking and skating and feel too big. Plus, they are moldable enough they will accommodate any width you are losing by moving down. I assume from your story you have to mail order them, and bake them at home?
  10. @Hills aka hockeyreviewsca had a super positive review on the Instagram. Not sure if it’s on his webpage as well.
  11. Any recommendations for a stick that plays similar to the QX? To me, DX felt like it played stiffer and/or they moved the kickpoint. I really like the shooting feel of the QX, kickpoint felt like it was in a great place for me.
  12. It’s not often that I get to score “well, actually…” points off of you. I gotta take wins where I can get them.
  13. Why do some people get SO MAD over other people worrying about weight? Like, if it’s not for you, then just smirk and and don’t buy it.
  14. Didn’t Pitch3 allowed you to adjust the pitch angle? I didn’t think you were adjusting the rocker.
  15. Not exactly what you are asking, but I have an accessory navicular, and no issues with the TF7s I got two weeks ago. Feels like my foot is firmly tight in the skate, but no undue pressure on my navicular. Was definitely some pressure before baking, but they are great post-bake. I didn’t have to punch them or anything.
