  1. Thanks for the breakdown! My wife has this same problem last(?) summer. She’s been in profile cages for a while and got a new helmet and cage and immediately was like “this isn’t right, do not want,” and we tracked down an older one on sideline swap. On the other hand, I’ve used a variety of cages with different helmets and I barely, if ever, notice the difference. I totally believe people when they get all picky about bar shape and face distance, but I just don’t notice it.
  2. I didn’t use D30, but I added VN foam to shinguards around the knee. I cut it to the shapes I wanted, and attached it to the pad, rather than the liner. I went closer to the “slab” approach than donut. To affix it, I doubled over duct tape, and it held everything with no issues. It wasn’t sexy but it held up perfectly fine. Prior to that, I had landed at just the wrong angle on my knee a few times and had inflamed bursa issues, but it stopped after added the padding.
  3. Do you have any friends or teammates or non-enemies who would let you borrow their 85 flex and see if you like playing with it? (or borrow it from an enemy, but then really lean hard into a bunch of slapshots with it.) After cutting the 95 flex you’re probably getting to be around 100, so the 85 might feel like a significant drop, but the trend for the past decade is people going down in flex. It’s all personal preference but using a ~100 flex stick just seems like a lot.
  4. They designed a hockey helmet specifically to perform well on a laboratory test that doesn’t actually test very well for real world hockey events. Uh, congrats? edit: being saucey towards the company, not anyone here.
  5. [VINCENT]I know, baby, you'd dig it the most...But you know what the funniest thing about Europe is?[JULES]What?[VINCENT] Its the little differences. I mean, they got the same shit over there they got here, but, it's just, just, there it's a little different.[JULES]Example? [Vincent] Their FT6 Pros are 20 points stiffer.
  6. I think that’s the best part. Elite-elite level NHL player with huge holes in his palms and colors in his gloves with paint markers he bought at Michaels. He clearly doesn’t care about aesthetics.
  7. Does that tool offer something that the tool the comes with edge holders doesn’t? For the non-pro equipment manager, what’s the advantage here?
  8. That’s what kinda confuses me about his selection, that he is choosing to produce and stock. There are 69 p28 variants available to ship right now that are more or less the exact same, but not a basic 88 clone. I would love to just hand this guy some of my money, and he’s making it inconvenient. And I stubbornly don’t want to do a custom order because it costs slightly more and takes more time, but I whine about it for 2 months and my stick would have been here by now. On the other hand, I kinda love that he is a mad scientist just doing things his way and is like “screw your basic needs, you can buy this curve that’s a p28 mixed with a p28 with a 5.6 lie, or you can go somewhere else.”
  9. I’m an idiot and can’t use a tape measure. Move along now, move along.
  10. My friend wears a cate eye cage from Warwick goalie masks in Michigan. They make at least one cage specific to players. Looks like it’s currently out, but he just bought it a few months ago, so I assume they restock https://www.warwickmaskcompany.com/product-category/replacement-cagesreplacement-goalie-cages-new-cage-for-eddy-sportmaskolieitechbauer-replacement-cage/
  11. Someone write a sci-fi short story about a future dystopian hellscape of only lowkick sticks with toe curves and and super pingy blades.
  12. The hockey community complains when they go to big box hockey stores and the employees are no help and no one has any equipment knowledge and can’t fit skates. The hockey community complains when small knowledgeable shops don’t have the return policies and discount buying power of Costco.
  13. Is the retail Trigger Team you linked to the same as the prostock Team LK sticks? I got the impression they are different, but a quick goog didn’t turn up any good info or specs for the LK.
