  1. Make sure that when you print the PDF, you do not choose fit to page. It will scale down depending on your printer.
  2. Steve Oleksy rocking some new Verbero mitts for tomorrow.
  3. Jersey looks great, but that collar is brutal. I know it is a cost cutting thing to put the laces on the collar itself, it just doesn't look right, though.
  4. Ready for Winter Wars at Huntington Beach this weekend!

  6. CJ is the complete opposite of a Cali-Hipster. His roots are in Pittsburgh... I am amazed by the venom being slung in this thread by people who have yet to even see anything. When it comes to things like this, seeing is believing. As Hills has said, the stick is decent and he enjoys using the gloves. More will come clear in the review, but those are positives for a company's first launch. Disliking a company because you don't think there is a purpose for them is ridiculous. If anything, more medium sized companies in the hockey world are a good thing, as Bauer grows larger every year and throws their weight around. There is a reason that skate prices have gone up $200 for the top model skates over the past few years with not very much noticeable improvements (downgrades in terms of the ice holders). Say what you will about the carbon being done in the past, but that has also been the past, nobody is currently doing it and technology has changed since then. One of the biggest knocks that people give hockeytron is their product is nothing more than big brand knockoffs. Verbero on the other hand is a line/look of its own, and there is nothing but venom in this thread.
  7. It is all about the surface with inline pucks. It seems like people who play on Ice Court like the RocketPuck and people on SportCourt like IDS pucks. The Verbero Aero works very well on SportCourt as well, haven't tested it on IceCourt though.
  8. You have to dremel out under the 2nd wheel to make the clearance for it. If you grab one of the Tours or Alkalis off the rack, you can see that they build it into the boot.
  9. Probably because I was in the right place at the right time to get him one of our frames. But at that size skate, there is a serious advantage of going all 80s. Since the 2nd wheel is recessed into the boot, you still get a lot of the mobility of having smaller wheels in the front, while having a much larger contact patch which allows for faster speed while working less.
  10. Looking good! Let me know what you think of the Addictions. A lot of tech has changed in the last 14 years as far as wheels go.
  11. You can give myself or Rob an email and we will be happy to take care of this for you. Sorry that you have been having issues. We will do our best to make this right for you.
  12. As someone who owned Kor's and has physically tried on the Verbero skate, they are not the same. They definitely have similar technology, but there are many noticeable improvements after first glance. There is some really cool stuff going on with the tongues, and the lining is fantastic. The market is much different now than it was 10 years ago, with Bauer jacking skate prices up to ridiculously high prices and Kor being ahead of the technology. There was a reason that Kor skates were looked upon so highly around these parts, yet they are not available anymore. Even if it were to break down to the level that you are saying (which is doesn't), it still fits a hole in the market that the big boys aren't filling.
  13. How about one of me coaching my son at WIHA finals?
  14. Picked these up during the HockeyMonkey Memorial Day sale. Put a Hi-Lo Kryptonium frame on them, they feel good so far, but it seems like all of the vents in the frame make it warp a bit when loosening/tightening bolts.
  15. Nice touch with the logo in the numbers!
