  1. I couldn’t find it again but fairly recently (last 2 years I think) there was a post maybe on Craigslist selling the entire Oggie Grips company. All of their materials, machines, warehouse, etc. with the original guy including training and consulting on doing everything.
  2. Just drill it out, that’s what I did on mine when a small chunk broke off and was lodged in the skate.
  3. I’m lucky enough to have this guy as my local skate sharpener!
  4. But they used a number instead of a letter in the name of the stick.
  5. @gosinger hope he’s right! Not really sure what inline is like here in the states as I didn’t get to one of the big 3 tourneys this year. But those are usually a huge showcase for Tours, Missions, etc of the world and we haven’t seen that since…well honestly I don’t remember, feels like forever. furthermore to @Dfinneran91 I’d love to see Bauer push Mission more, especially in light of Bauer’s ‘hockey is inclusive/the barn PR campaign’. Instead I see $400 sticks and $1100 skates. if Bauer wanted to make hockey more inclusive I’d expect Mission roller to be highlighted and marketed. But hey that would eat into profits of their top of the line ice products and whatever collaboration they have up their sleeve with whatever streetwear guy the kids love these days.
  6. Is roller hockey even still a thing? surprised Bauer hasn’t gotten rid of mission all together.
  7. I’m going to give a Rezztek +1 to use during the summer over tape. With the heat waves we’ve been having the ice has been brutal lately, after 15 minutes or so the ice is chopped up and we usually skate for over an hour so you can imagine the amount of a snow build up on your stick blade. That’s where the Rezztek comes in, no ice build up at all and that added grip from the texture on it gives you added control on bouncing pucks or pucks on end.
  8. Just dropping a note here that @PUCKSTOPPROSHOPJL knows his stuff and does great work. And he didn’t mention the over the hill beer leaguers who will try anything to get an edge that he helps out too!
  9. That I don’t know unfortunately. But if I had to base it on the release cycle I’d say a year’ish & some is what I’d put my money on.
  10. I don’t see Graf as a ‘major’ brand anymore.
  11. Stumbled upon this and thought it was interesting: Check out this job at Warrior Sports: Product Engineer - Skates https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/3116385282 Always scratched my head wondering with New Balance as the parent company why Warrior never got into skates, guess we’ll have to see if this comes to fruition.
  12. “Built with updated materials for improved feel & performance but holds true to the iconic look with the most iconic patterns that Synergy was known for.” Translation, Because if we actually used any of the original materials or build process we’d get exposed that a lot of the current sticks are subpar compared to the original synergy.
  13. Looks to be similarly priced to Rezztek. Haven’t seen it in person but curious how it stacks up to how thin the Rezztek material is. Not in blade coverage but when sticking it it on, it’s very thin. Not sure the design of the buttendz is ideal with it not covering the entire blade unless they have size options available? I’ve tried Rezztek and I think it’s a very good product albeit overpriced. That being said I’ve tried buttendz stick grips and I think the product is subpar and way overpriced, I’d take tacki Mac any day of the week over buttendz. With that in mind I’d most likely go back to Rezztek if I ever went the blade grip route.
