  1. Trues are streamlined with moveable and removable pieces. Would be worth trying on
  2. I’ve found the durability of the blades to be great. Shafts San get brittle from slashes and shot blocks, I’d say more than the average shaft. But I’ve used them for years and always been pleased
  3. You have a heart, who would’ve guessed? good to hear you caught it early, I’d hate to have to render on ice first aid at WF.
  4. Nightmares of the Nike Quest looks but the fit, for me, was excellent.
  5. I had it happen to a few sticks, the matted coati g pulled away and the adhesive was left.
  6. https://www.prostockhockey.com/hockey-sticks/player-sticks/left-christoffer-ehn-jetspeed-85-flex-stick-2/ One thing I've noticed guys in your situation struggling to adjust to as well, is using sticks longer than the old shaft/blade days as well as adjusting to the flex (not using super stiff shafts with wood blades). Guys that used to come through the shop would eventually get in a comfort zone one they adapted to both.
  7. Just as ridiculous as I would’ve imagined. Excited to try it on ice
  8. I'd take them out for skates meant to be in the oven for 8-12 minutes, but 2-3 shouldn't hurt footbeds

  10. My timeline is fuzzy on when they and THC split, but another option for CDN made pads https://customizer.lefevregoalie.com/
  11. Like this. It’s an ncaa thing. For some reason.
  12. Depending what shade it is, some companies only get enough material for that one game. So you may not be able to replicate it perfectly. I found this out trying to have Vancouver burgundy gloves made
  13. A few WinterFest tour pickups; TPS Grosse Pointe North breezers DT1 Honeybaked pants Rbk 8K pants Franchise MIC Red/White
  14. Several reasons; Very few shops are going to stock a product, or stick sight unseen, there needs to be something tangible for shops to base their buying off of. Also, like Stewie said, in order to dedicate floor space to POP material. Secondly, if you’re spending your entire sales day talking about the “QRE10, that hasn’t been released yet,” buyers aren’t inclined to buy current stock, they’ll wait for the newest latest greatest, or wait longer for the current to go on sale. You’re undercutting your own bottom line, which is inordinately foolish. Lastly, every product/POP preview I’ve been a part of (since 2002) it has been explicitly stated “this info is still confidential-in the works,” and if it wasn’t stated, it was implied. And if it wasn’t implied, we were smart enough to know it wasn’t info for gen pop. The two big names would Even provide dates telling retailers when info could begin to be teased.
  15. $20 Play it Again score.
  16. They don’t, and it’s made clear to retailers that material like this is for their eyes only.
  17. Do the opposite, put toe lifts under your insoles.
  18. Simpler check; make sure the magnet on the level didn’t collect some skate dust, that’ll throw off leveling as well. lesson learned from experience
  19. I don’t see what he was trying to accomplish. It doesn’t seem like the holders were moved or angled at all. Just a bunch of new holes. what did you ask him to do?
  20. It’s not uncommon to put new holes in like that, to avoid drilling too much in an area or elongating an existing hole, but I would’ve made sure you were aware before I did it.
  21. If I had to guess, they installed the holders without steel, and like JR said the steel was a hair too wide for the channel
  22. ...aaaaaand I like these even more. Cream shells and brown gloves look great with that green
  23. Easton used to call it "Styles," and yes, low lie heel wedge. And beautiful
