  1. So I have one extra set of Step steel for the LS2. So I'm going to get those profiled and put on... I wonder what the odds are that it will fix everything.
  2. Do holders just give out over time as well? I have a pair of Bauer One 100. I'm wondering if I should just buy new steel, new holder or just new skates....
  3. I noticed I had a slight bend in my skate blade. Probably been like that for a very long time. Store fixed it and it is an improvement but it is still not perfect straight. After talking to the guy I got the impression that it is a very common thing and not to worry to much if it is very small... Thoughts. My info: 220 pounds probably 240 with equipment on.
  4. Dude. You need to read my review on the 0.5 Quad profile... https://modsquadhockey.com/forums/topic/73239-my-review-of-the-05-quad-profile/
  5. I have lace bite in one foot. I do the Forsberg thing where I velcro two gel columns to the inside of the skate tongue to give room for that tendon in the front of the shin that sticks out when you bend your knees or lift your toes. Then I'm like 'how has no one built something like this into all skate tongues already'? I'm thinking all skate tongues on the inside should be shaped like this ^ more not like this ( . Like, you keep the outside of the skate tongue like this " ( " but the inside should be more like this ^ . Basicly what I'm saying is the front of my shin is not round. I'm using a Bauer One 100 at the moment. So maybe the new tongues do this? Or if someone knows of a product.
  6. Me 220 pounds. Coming from a 11' neutral profile, 5/8 sharpen. Rocker 280 length. Started playing hockey on 13' profile 20 years ago(didn't want to fall etc) till I figured that 13' profile in the corners kinda sucks so, I started to lower the profile number. 9' was great in the corners but unstable for me so a settled for 11' profile. Been on that for years. 0.5 Quad (8-10-12-14) As suggested when switching to the 0.5 quad I lower my sharpen from 5/8 to a 3/4... Conclusion I am having more fun playing hockey with this profile... 0.5 Quad feels 'natural'. The first thing you are going to notice is the extra stability(even coming from an 11') but, as soon as you bend your knees and shift your weight your suddenly agile. The weight shift feels natural, hard to describe, flex your foot 2 degrees and your suddenly agile without it feeling strange at all. Coming from a single profile skate the quad felt sooo much better. It kinda feels like I'm skating on a 13' profile but the second I want to make a cut it feels like a 10' (maybe lower?). So increased stability with increased agility. Normally you have to give up one to get the other. Other notes: the increase in glide is noticable big time. This makes sense with the change in sharpen and more steel on the ice... So in general if you are on a 10' profile or higher I would suggest the 0.5 quad profile. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Update: four games in and it keeps getting better the more I play on them. Love them.
  7. No data. Just talk about feel, I went back to change the wording in the first post.
  8. Interesting things I did not know before I started doing research on skate profiles. If you have good knee bend you can make anything work...(some pros don't even know what they are skating on). Just because something feels good to you doesn't mean it is the most efficient profile in term of speed and agility.(Brock University study). Most efficient dual profile was 9/10 and 9.5/10.5 in study.(only dual looked at. Brock University). Dual profiles greater than 2 ie 7/10 may cause flat spot feel between the different radius in runner, might be better to keep changes to 2 or less ie 8/10 or 8/10/12/14 etc.(just something being suggested).
  9. Only had one skate on them. No equipment or stick, just a community skate. I want to put on the equipment and giver before a review but right now the 0.5 is kinda blowing me away. How is it possible to be more agile and more stable at the same time... I could go on but I want to really test it more first.
  10. Ok I will do the same. The new machine comes in this week. How does the .5 feel coming from a 10'? I'm coming from a 11' myself.
  11. Do you have to change the sharpen when switching to a quad radius? I think I heard that it is one of the advantages of switching to the quad, cause less sharp more glide etc.
  12. I was going to post the same thing.
  13. I can say with some confidence that very few people will buy a 399 stick but the 230 two piece sticks will fly off the shelves. I'm guessing two piece stick are easier to make and maybe more profitable? So...
