  1. That's why I don't want to get retail trues. Going down half a size for me would put me in a smaller holder. The money I'd spend on swapping holders to ccm xs ones and upgrading to a felt tongue (for tf9) I would prefer to get customs and not have excess holes on the sole of the boot too. But that's just me.
  2. Tell him not to use the tendon guards to remove or put on the skates. Likely that's what's causing the damage.
  3. Also just use black enamel markers or sharpie aside from acetone
  4. Replacing parts on skates other than steel and holders has never really been an option. Once certain parts broke you are hooped or had to find someone that might be able to fix it. Ie tendon guards, traditional eyelets etc. Do we give shoe manufacturers shit for not having replacement parts?
  5. You can argue it's a manufacturing defect but imo the injected eyelet system is a giant defect in itself...
  6. He took a shot off them. Regardless whether they are a day old or five years old, they would've broke. Even if it was within warranty Bauer probably could easily say too bad since breakage due to shot blocking isn't really a manufacturing defect. Would they have covered it if it was withing warranty, probably. But after warranty no way they will knowing Bauer's history. Plastics will always potentially break from impact. Shitty deal for OP though.
  7. The cat pro is diff than the cat customs. Until they actually release we won't know what they will look like exactly. What you see the pros wear isn't anything indicative of what will be offered at the retail level. Or even custom level. You can only make assumptions. But for me I agree, the less yellow or any other vibrant color, the better.
  8. Then the boot probably wasn't soft enough. Never had an issue with my trues but those get pretty soft
  9. This works to specifically pinpoint areas without risking eyelet damage. Or using your hands to massage the boot around your foot after tying at 60%. The eyelet facings will wrap more and produce some slack in the laces which will also prevent excessive pulling on the eyelets. Or... True saran wrap method.
  10. The catalogue is also pics of retail. Tf retail has slight differences than the tf customs. So this isn't a surprise.
  11. I thought he just pulled his sleeves up not actually had them cut off.
  12. Just get new holders if you have a trustworthy LHS.
  13. Same place / site that was just posted but this link is for vh and pre TF true skates. https://www.hockeyvancouver.ca/collections/true-vh-hockey-skate-repair-parts/products/true-hockey-replacement-heel-tendon-guard
