  1. Neoprene ankle guard to protect from friction Same thing happened to me. Would get a nasty blister on the side of foot. I got something like link above and it worked. Mine was for figure skaters thou. Good luck.
  2. Been subscribed to you for over a month now. Your videos are good.
  3. I would just stay away from 100 flex. After that pick what you want. For me anything lower than 85 feel like I'm shooting with a rope rather then a stick.
  4. I have my foot flexed forward while I tie them all the way up. Then I tweak it from there.
  5. The P92 is the best selling curve for a reason. It can do everything. A mid flex is probably the safest flex you can use as it can do everything. An 85 flex is probably the safest flex as, you guessed it, it can do everything. I think the only question up for debate is how long your stick should be. Short for better stick handling or longer for a harder shot. I found that shortening my stick 1.5 inches changed my game more than curve and flex ever did. All that said it didn't stop me from buying the Laine curve from prostockhockey.. It was a mid 85 flex though..
  6. The only stick I have ever used that would last was the Bauer Nexus 1000 from ten years ago. It weighted in at 415 grams and had something called eLASTech which was something they added to the stick to prevent micro cracks from spreading. If I were prostockhockeysticks I would look at that stick and reverse engineer it. Something about that stick worked. Weather it was the eLASTech or something else I have no idea. I own a prostockhockeystick blueline 85 flex Laine(sp?). I have yet to use it but it feels great it the living room.. I wanted to try the curve and the price was right. Bauer Nexus 1000 stick
  7. Took a shot with my PlayStation the other day and the thing shattered first shot. Of course it was past the 30 days so I was screwed.. Was going to pick up a pair of new Hyperlite sticks but it was too expensive so I'm stuck trying another PS5. Was thinking of using my old wide-screen OLED TV for a few games and maybe just wait for the Hyperlite's to come down in price..
  8. It is funny but sticks are so expensive now that I feel stuck using what I know and don't feel I can risk buying another type of stick. So I'm stuck using the Nexus till I die. How the F are sticks more expensive then a pair of BOSE's noise cancelling headset? Two sticks cost more then a PS5..
  9. I found while using these that I only needed to put one on the medial portion of my skate. Helped with the lace bite by increasing the range of motion just enough.
  10. Two other things you are going to notice. Crossovers will feel way stronger. I find I can actually use my crossovers to accelerate as apposed to just turning. Also you are going to last a lot longer on the ice before you need to take a break. That comes from the increased glide. In fact once you reach top speed you can actually stop pumping your legs and just glide with your head up cause your not losing speed as much vs a single 9' profile. The Quad 0.5 is a total game changer. Makes the game easier.
  11. Yellow laces have been around for so long they are kinda basic at this point.
  12. I think the full QUAD profile that jumps by threes between zones might take more to get use too. The QUAD 0.5, which jumps by twos' between the zones, will take you about ten minutes to get use too.
  13. Here is a quote from PBH "I'll throw my hat in the ring here as someone who does a ton of profiles and also tests them. Owning a full-service hockey shop gives me the ability to have access to try all different combinations of skates, steel, and profiles. Yes, I am lucky, but this also comes with negatives as well considering I change configurations so often I sometimes physically hurt myself s and it most certainly does take its toll on my skating as well by changing equipment so often. Such is life..... BTW, when I say I hurt myself testing, I am dead serious. I hurt my back not too long ago, slipped a disc. I was testing an unreleased pair of skates with a very aggressive Quad 0 profile that was applied, it still had the full pitch in it and my back just couldn't handle the strain exerted with being so far forward. My back and core were constantly engaged fighting against the extremely stiff skate and the pitch of the profile and something had to give... Something did. My back. Anyway. Quad 0.5 is a great overall profile and as mentioned, what I typically like to start players on if they are coming from steel that has not been profiled previously. It's also very good for new adult players, as the pitch is something they are not yet accustomed to and can throw off their skating. For the young kids, I prefer to put them on a single longer profile until they develop advanced edge control. This allows them to focus on skating and not worrying about balance as much. Quad 2 would be my second go-to. The Quad 0/1 removes a very large amount of steel and also add quite a bit of pitch. Once you blend the toe properly many people feel too far forward and they get short choppy strides due to balance issues and such. There are so many factors I think we can all agree that its truly impossible to say what is the best method and what to use for each player without seeing. Not to mention that some skates have a built-in forward pitch, like TRUE, and many other skates are very neutral. For example, skating on a Quad 0 using the "Pro Sharp recommendation) on my TRUE skates makes me feel unbalanced. When I do Quad 0/1 I tend to remove most of the pitch from the profile to preserve steel and also lessen the forward pitch. I can always add more pitch later but I cannot add steel back once it's been removed. "
  14. 280mm blade. Quad 0.5 at 3/4 weight 215 Came from a single profile 11' at 5/8. I did try to go a little sharper from the 3/4 and spilt the difference between 3/4 and 5/8 with a 11/16 but I liked the glide of the 3/4 better so went back to it. For you a 5/8 or 9/16. More glide is a cool feeling so you might as well start with the 5/8.
  15. 9.5/10.5 dual would be a no brainer BUT QUAD 0.5 (8-10-12-14) could be your golden slipper:) Just remember the more steel you have on the ice the more you are going to want to drop your sharpen. I went from a 11' 5/8 to a Quad 0.5 3/4. I use to wear a mirrored visor so take everything I say with a grain of salt.
