  1. Found this interesting, albeit not surprising. You can clearly see the outsole on Connor McDavid’s “FT6P’s”
  2. Pure Hockey had an SMU that was the 30K glove, without all the plastic that made the glove as ugly as it was and a pro palm. Still to this day my favorite gloves I've owned.
  3. Unfortunately Bauer won't be implementing all three fits to the roller line, at least as of now. 3XProRH will come in Fit 2 only. I really wish Bauer would give a Fit 3 option. I know the roller community is nowhere near as large as the ice community, but it really would set them apart knowing if a guy came in with higher insteps/volumed feet, we would have something that could comfortably work off the shelf.
  4. Heard a story from my area manager about Evgeny Kuznetsov going into the Rockville Pure Hockey and buying a pair of 3XPro skates because he "doesn't like the stiffness of the Hyperlites." Didn't believe they would actually see game action, and then I see this from today. 3XPro, Carbonlite steel. This guy really is one of us. Apparently he also buys 40-50 rolls of Renfrew tape at a time because he likes "the green core tape" lmao
  5. Looking at the shelves in my work, I'd be inclined to agree. We're sparingly getting skates. We just received our most ice skates in months this past week, and we maybe got 15 pairs of 3S skates. Custom lead times are now minimum 130 days (Bauer) due to staffing shortages. It's going to be tough for the beginning of the year I think.
  6. Dealt with our first one last week. Unfortunately, this one broke in the front of the blade. It broke off to the point we could not remove the piece from the holder, and ended up not only needing to replace the steel, but having to replace the entire holder as well. Very disappointing if this is going to be a theme - whether common or not.
  7. It's almost nonexistent at this point. There's a few outliers, for sure, but for the most part, we don't see it. We don't even bring in 102/105 flex on booking orders - only on closeout. At this point, I don't think the average beer league player has either the technique, or strength to get what is needed to properly use a 100 flex.
  8. The problem is a lot of guys who played then, still have that same mindset. I love TRUE's sticks, because they make their 65/68 flex at senior shaft dimensions. I'd use a 65 flex all day if every brand followed suit. Alas, they don't, and I feel like the INT TRUE's noodle out much quicker than desired, so I've since gone to 70 flex CCM's. But the main issue I have is height, being only 5'6 (but 200 lbs - damn COVID). I just don't cut as much off the stick anymore.
  9. I have seen what it'll retail for. It's not quite as high as listed by some in here, but it's up there. Won't say exactly in case it's not allowed to be said yet.
  10. I'd be careful of your wording if you reached out to TRUE regarding this. At the end of the day, they could tell you you're out of luck because you modified the original skates - therefore voiding any warranty they offer.
  11. Holder size goes up on every half size Fit 3 I’ve seen.
  12. Hey Jimmy, We do have the CCM scanner available. Shoot me a PM if you want, let me know the gist what you're looking for. Our only problem is stock when it comes to CCM, as Ribcores are not a skate we get as frequently, and the Tacks obviously being refreshed this year, our stock is a bit on the depleted side. However, since you'd be coming from further away, I can work with some stores to see if we need to get anything in ahead of time. Also, not sure when exactly you were looking to head on over, but just as an aside, I'll only be in this location for another month, as I'll be transferring to another location. But I can always get you set up with one of the other guys.
  13. Best believe if I was in the show, I'd try to find a way to still be using my now 20-year old Jofa's, which are anything but top of the line. I can't stand modern elbow pads. They're so bulky and restrictive. If I HAD to pick a modern elbow pad? Give me the FT370's.
  14. I thought it was weird when I saw Virginia Tech as the company and was shipping a royal blue helmet, then I was like "oh....right....that thing." Haha
  15. You want to know what's funny? I shipped a TRUE helmet to Virginia Tech this week from my Pure Hockey store.
