  1. I'm looking to update my gloves (currently in Easton HSX Synergy), and I'd like to try another brand this time around. I love the anatomical fit of my current gloves, which I found better for me than Bauer's equivalent 1s and also found the 1x to be too loose. I've read good things about both the True XC9 and the Warrior QRL Pros, which especially get a lot of love around here. My problem is that I haven't found anywhere locally yet that have the Trues in stock to try on. The quality seems to be roughly equal for both, but my main concern is surrounding fit between the two. Has anyone had experience with both and can speak to which provides the snugger fit throughout? I'm not as concerned about the Z-palm technology in the Trues and value fit above all else.

  5. In my search of old easton gx gloves, I was hoping someone knew the complete list of gloves that they made and the differences between all the models. i.e. I know Modano wore GX 9500 but there seems to be up to 10 different versions of the gloves. Whats the difference between all of them?
  6. Has anyone ever purchased anything or have experience with salesportinggoods.com ? I feel like this site may be too good to be true, especially because they have so many older models of gloves not being sold anymore. But seeing as how they're a wholesaler based out of Singapore I can see how it's possible they have access to the inventory of the factories over there. Here's all the gloves they say they have available: http://salesportinggoods.com/categories/Hockey/Senior-Equipments/Hockey-Gloves/

  8. Hi All, Longtime lurker, first time poster...;) This is a fantastic forum and resource for all things hockey equipment related so I thought what better place to ask my question! I'm looking to get my name embroidered onto my Bauer Nexus gloves on the cuff or the side (whatever)...anyone have any recommendations in the Greater Toronto Area (or anywhere else)? Please let me know and thanks in advance!
  9. I'm looking to get a new pair of gloves. Looking at either warrior pro stock qr1 or main line qrl3. I'm assuming the qr1's will have a softer palm but will they wear quicker than the qrl3 palms? I don't need top of the line but if they are in the same price range then durability is the only question. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. I'm sure everyone has seen the Crosby slash on Methot and the finger injury. I was watching a sports show and the topic of glove protection came up. One of the hosts mentioned that NHL players have been complaining about the lack of finger protection with one brand, but declined to say which one. Does anyone know what brand it is? Definitely not the best marketing for Warrior coming away with a severed finger.

  12. I recently bought some second-hand hockey pants and there is no way I could give them back, I also wouldn't want to buy some new ones either. I am trying to figure out how to keep the pants up higher so they don't get in the way. Although I still have not found out what to do yet, any comment, answer would be great. My helmet fits fine at the store, but when I go to practice, my temples start hurting a lot as if someone was squeezing my head super hard. The pain would start probably around 35-50 minutes in. I first had a CCM XT (forgot the size), and the pain would start earlier than the helmet I have now which is the Reebok XT medium. The Reebok one does not hurt as much, but probably will hurt the same when I use it during a game. Any comment would be great. I was thinking of cutting the EPP foam a little but read some articles saying that would void the certification. Recommendations for a wide head, probably a round head would also be great. (Best if the helmet recommendations are under $60) Also the helmets have cages. New edit: Is there any way I could alter ski pants suspenders to fit the hockey pants?
  13. So I've been consulting with a company who's been researching inline hockey pucks for some time. I told them I though posting a survey here would probably be a good way to get feedback from the correct audience. If you have the time, try the survey below. It's 10 questions. http://FreeOnlineSurveys.com/rendersurvey....ooncytgha717231
  14. Being new I bought what appears to be clean basically Brand new looking pair of ITECH Pro745 gloves at Play it Again sports for $20... I have worn full gear to public skates, maybe 4 stick and pucks, 2 hockey classes, and 2 fireman's league games. and the gloves to 5- 1 hour long dryland cage, practice times... while cleaning my gear I noticed that the left glove ( my top hand) has holes in it (round tears) where the top of the palm meets the bottom of the fingers. The right glove is just fine. Are these really cheap gloves? how long can I use them before they are unusable? they are probably not worth having repaired... they feel really good on my hands although I wish they gave me a bit more dexterity as picking up my stick is hard and taking my lower hand off then putting it back on the stick the glove gets in the way sometimes... any input is appreciated as I am still figuring this all out..... I have plenty of time to figure it out as My injury has Dr. saying no hockey for at least 4 weeks thanks
  15. Hello all. My search didn't turn up quite what I was looking for, so here we go... Does anyone have any experience removing the extra backhand padding that is now commonly found on pro stock gloves? The model of gloves I'm more specifically concerned with is CCM's HG50 (CL500). How easy/difficult is it to remove this excess padding? Can it be done with a seam ripper? Any advice, instruction, or direction is appreciated. Thanks.

  17. I recently purchased a pair of 15 inch gloves (Nexus 800). I did this over the 14s because the cuff on the 14s had dug into my skin and restricted my movement. The 15s fit me in terms of the palms and body. They do not fit in terms of fingers. They are a tad too long, any idea how I can get them to fit a little smaller? Looking for DIY methods.
  18. Currently wearing CCM CL500's and while I like how lightweight and mobile they are, they're not very protective (especially in the backhand.) Just wondering what are the best, most protective, gloves you've used? Thanks
  19. Hey guys, I'm looking for an elite pair of new gloves and skates (preferably retail.) For gloves looking for a short, wide cuff. In skates I'm looking for a comfortable boot and a good turning radius. Let me know if you have any suggestions, thanks!
  20. Was wondering if anyone had purchased these Reebok 4-Rolls, I found them for cheap but couldn't tell the difference between the Nashville and Columbus color ways. They look the same even though the Columbus one says Navy/Beige. I need a plain Navy glove for this season and was wondering if the beige even made a big difference, thanks.

  21. INTRODUCTION Two of the prominent features of hockey gloves are the palm and the gussets. (Custom cuffs would probably be next!) When I set out to order my custom Easton Pro+ gloves, I tried to research as many options as I could to pick out my specs. The information and videos about palms and gussets are scattered and sparse, so this is my attempt to bring together the information into one place. Obviously, each material will vary from user to user, so take the information as you will. I'm open to suggestions to improve this post. Special thanks to Pat Rivest for letting me visit his shop and pick his brain. OVERVIEW Hockey palms can be either genuine leather or synthetic leather. They will vary in thickness and durability. The synthetic leather options will be generally more durable than genuine leather. Their grip will depend on whether there is an addition adhesive or pattern added to the material. Genuine leather palms used in hockey gloves mostly come from goatskin. Common natural leather options are Digital, mustang, and kangaroo. Those names are given by the manufacturer, Pittards; it does not necessarily relate to their source animal. They tend to be labelled as “performance” materials as they are not intended to be durable palms. Another drawback is that they may have irregularities from being a natural hide. These palms are not usually found on stock retail gloves because of their lower durability. Rather, they’re found on gloves for players who request it, whether it’s a pro or a regular customer. Synthetic leathers are man-made. Common synthetic leather options are nash and micronash. In general, they are microfibers made to look like genuine leather but with improved durability and stain resistance. Based on their features, synthetic leathers are found not only on most (if not all) retail stock gloves, but usually on pro gloves, too. Hockey companies are always looking for the optimal synthetic palm material that is thin, durable, and soft, so more options are available on the market now than in previous years. Replacement palms are available for genuine leathers and synthetic leathers. Companies will offer replacement palms pre-made (such as the ones found in the catalogue from Nash Sports) or will create them from the source material (such as repalming services offered at Custom Pro Repair). GENUINE LEATHERS Digital: Comes in grey.Goatskin supplied by Pittards. (Synthetic non-Pittards “Digital” is not true Digital.)Considered a “performance” leather.Medium thickness between kangaroo/yellow mustang and pearl mustang.Properly known as Digital textured leather and was first used in collaboration with Franklin as a “grip-enhanced leather for baseball batting gloves”.May also been known as “Carbon Fibre Digital”.Can be used as a base palm, and often used as an overlay for grip.Has a pattern stamped onto the material to provide grip. (Looks similar to Suregrip, except Suregrip is a synthetic leather. Digital from Pittards will stay grippy over the course of its lifetime but nash-based synthetic variants will get slick over time.)A common option for custom gloves at the pro and consumer level for its grip and feel.Digital Tacky: Comes in a dark grey.It is Digital (as above), but it is treated with an adhesive/glue to make it more sticky.Generally used as an overlay only for added grip. Digital Tacky (top), Digital (bottom). Warrior Franchise, Digital palm, micronash gussets. Warrior Franchise, Digital palm, Digital Tacky overlay. Mustang: Comes in pearl and yellow.Suede goatskin supplied by Pittards.Considered a “performance” leather.Pearl mustang is the thickest of all the “performance” genuine leathers and has the least grip.Yellow mustang is thinner and has more grip than pearl mustang.Yellow mustang is comparable to kangaroo, but with slightly less grip.Was a popular option mostly for custom Warrior gloves. Yellow mustang (top), pearl mustang (bottom). Warrior Franchise, yellow mustang palm. Warrior Franchise, pearl mustang palm. Kangaroo: Comes in one color, yellow.Goatskin supplied by Pittards.Considered a “performance” leather.Apparently, it was given the name “kangaroo” because of its color! (It’s not made from kangaroo hide.)Supple and grippy material.Similar thickness (thinness?) to yellow mustang.Kangaroo and yellow mustang have a relatively lower durability compared to the rest of the genuine leathers.Was an option mostly for custom Warrior gloves. Kangaroo. Warrior Franchise, kangaroo palm. Horsehide and cowhide: These palms are (presumably) made from their respective source animals.They’re usually very thick and most often used by players who prefer an old-school style of glove.Horsehide is reportedly not as durable as goatskin.Not a common option.SYNTHETIC LEATHERS Nash: Comes in ivory, light grey, dark grey, and black. (No difference between the colors except the look.)Technically described as a “polyester micro fiber, non-woven, synthetic suede”.Synthetic suedes can be made by a variety of companies with a variety of thicknesses, so quality can vary depending on the supplier.(Nash is the biggest point of confusion for me. I believe that “nash” is a generic term for synthetic suede made in a certain fashion. There isn’t a synthetic suede company called “Nash”. There must be a few dominant suppliers, including Clarino by Kuraray and Ennis, that supply the majority of the “nash” product. Whoever is the main supplier might be the nash that is the commonly-used palm that we know.)Thick and durable palm material, usually 1.0 mm.Can be used as a base palm for a durable palm and/or as an overlay for additional durability.Pro players may prefer to use this palm because it’s common and they are used to it.Compared to Clarino, nash will last longer but will become more brittle and hard when dried.Because nash is made with a water-based adhesive, sweat will eventually soak into the palm and break down the bonds, which leads to pilling and splitting.The nash material has no relation to Nash Sports, who supplies hockey products and accessories such as replacement palms.Suregrip (Nash Grip): Comes in grey.Described as an “embossed artificial suede”.It is grey nash (as above), but with a pattern stamped onto the material (“embossed”) to provide a grippy texture.Looks similar to Digital, except Digital is a genuine leather. (Hence, this could be called "synthetic digital".)It is a thick and durable palm that is 1.0 mm thick. Suregrip/Nash Grip (top), grey nash (middle), ivory nash (bottom). Easton Pro, grey nash palm and gussets. Easton Synergy 800, ivory nash palm and gussets. CCM U+ CL, Suregrip palm. Clarino: Comes in ivory, light grey, dark grey, and black. (No difference between the colors except the look.)Clarino is a broad term that describes a variety of synthetic leathers produced by Kuraray.A non-woven bundle of intertwined microfibers that is buffed, napped, and dyed to become a soft and supple suede-like product that resembles genuine leather. (Check out the manufacturing process!)(There is likely a specific subtype of synthetic suede within the Clarino company that is used in hockey. It might simply be known as “Clarino nash”.)It is similar to nash but has a different construction that makes it more soft when dried but less durable.Clarino nash is used by Bauer in the 2015 Nexus 800 for a soft feel. (Though, interestingly, non-Clarino nash is used in the Nexus 1000…)Clarino nash is used by CCM in the 2015 Ultra Tacks for a pro feel.Clarino is used by Warrior in the 2015 AX1 and QR1 for a pro feel and durability. MIA MB22, Clarino palm. Micronash: Comes in (light) grey, dark grey, and beige. (There is no difference between the colors except the look.)Synthetic microfiber.Thin and durable palm material with consistent reports of having good feel.Exclusive material to Warrior gloves, and sometimes underrated. Warrior Franchise, Micronash palm and gussets. AX Suede: Polyester suede, which allows for a variety of colors.AX Suede Quattro+ is exclusive to Bauer and is a “triple-fiber blend palm” in the MX3 and APX2 used for soft feel, abrasion resistance, and moisture management.AX Suede is used by Easton in the 2015 Synergy HSX as a two-piece palm for a tactile feel and abrasion resistance. (0.75 mm thickness)AX Suede is used by CCM in the 2015 4R Pro for durability, soft feel, and grip.MSH3: Polyester microsuede that is (likely) from China.MSH3 is a thin and durable material, per Eagle.MSH3 in an evolution of MSH2, which was popular when first launched and had a strong run of popularity.Exclusive material to Eagle gloves, though reportedly can be repalmed on other gloves. Eagle Aero Pro, MSH3 palm. (Pic courtesy of The Hockey Shop.) TPS HGT, MSH3 palm. Eagle X70, MSH2 palm. VX Suede: Synthetic suede leather with a soft feel, per Eagle.VX Suede is used by Eagle in the 2015 Sentry II for feel and durability.Tactik Microsuede: Microsuede palm used by Easton in the 2015 Stealth CX for soft feel and abrasion resistance.0.8 mm thickness.DURABILITY From the most durable to the least durable, based on discussion with Pat Rivest: nash (most durable)Micronashpearl mustangkangaroo/yellow mustang/Digital (least durable)Compare with the list generated by JunkyardAthletic. THICKNESS From the thickest to the thinnest, based on discussion with Pat Rivest: nash (thickest)pearl mustangDigitalkangaroo/yellow mustang/Micronash (thinnest)Compare with the list generated by Eagle Hockey circa 2008. OVERLAYAn overlay is an additional layer of material that goes overtop the base palm, typically over the middle portion of the palm but can also be found on other parts of the palm. One reason for an overlay is added durability. The overlay can be the same material as the palm to double the thickness of the palm. Another configuration is to have a thin palm but a thick overlay for a mixture of feel and durability. Some players might order without an overlay, therefore creating a single-layer palm, for increased feel. Bauer NXG, single layer (Clarino?) nash palm. Another reason for an overlay is added grip. The middle of the palm is where the stick rests in the hands, so that’s where the grip is added to the palm. In this case, materials that are used are often Suregrip, Digital, or Digital tacky. Bauer APX Pro, nash palm, Suregrip overlay. If you’re a pro player with very specific requests, you can have a special overlay pattern like Marian Gaborik! Gaborik glove overlay on palm and fingertips. GUSSETS The gussets are the materials between the fingers that connect the palm to the foam body of the glove. The gusset is usually the same material as the palm. For example, nash palms will have nash gussets, and Micronash palms will have Micronash gussets. Bauer 4-Roll Pro, (Clarino?) nash palm and gussets. In the case that a less durable material is used (e.g. Digital), the gussets will often be a more durable material, such as nash. Easton HSX, Digital palm, nash gussets. A popular custom choice is sponge mesh. Colors include white, black, and grey. It is lightweight and breathable. It’s found on pro gloves. Easton Pro, nash palms, white sponge mesh gussets. Another option is poly knit, which is a stretch material. Colors include white and black. It’s lightweight and breathable. It’s found on pro gloves. Bauer X60, nash palm, unknown overlay, black stretch gussets. Warrior Covert, Digital palm, kangaroo overlay, white stretch gussets. REPALMING SERVICES You may be keen to repalm your glove using a YouTube video, but I’d suggest going with experts who have the equipment and experience to do the job nicely. Mark “Peaches” Brennan of Peaches Pro Repair is a nice person with a good reputation who has done consistent good work for ModSquadHockey users, such as Harv and halfmoonyote. He’s a former NHL equipment manager and president of the Society of Pro Hockey Equipment Managers. His shop located in Portland, Oregon. Ralph Beavis of Nash Sports is a good guy who is also well regarded for his knowledge and experience in the industry. Peaches sends clients in Canada to him. His shop is in Lakefield, Ontario. Pat Rivest of Custom Pro Repair is a former employee at Warrior Hockey employee who teamed up with his colleague Ken to run their own glove repair and modification operation. He does a lot of good work and accommodates special requests, like the super-modified gloves from ibeck. His shop is in Lasalle, Quebec.
  22. BACKGROUND Four-roll gloves are classic - both in terms of ft and look - and I always thought that the coolest model was by Easton. I’ll have to admit - I wanted to look like an NHLer (that’s why forums like this exist, isn’t it?!), and it seemed like everyone wore these gloves. (Kudos to Easton’s pro and marketing departments for making that impression!) In particular, Easton has had good representation on my home team, the Edmonton Oilers, particularly during the 2006 Stanley Cup run: Hemsky, Horcoff, Stoll, Torres, Staios. (And some of them rocked white fingers on their gloves, too!) Look at all the Easton gloves! Shawn Horcoff, who was a beast in 2005-2006, scored a triple-OT winner in his sweet Easton gloves. I’ve been dreaming up custom Easton gloves as far back as 2011 when Pro Stock Hockey Gear announced a program called “The Works”. Unfortunately, that option closed before I was in a position to place an order (Easton closed their Canadian factory), so I thought that my dream glove would never materialize. (The PSHG would taunt me for my missed opportunity with photo galleries for the Works, the Synergy 800, and the EQ50.) One of the many mock-ups I made on PSHG’s customizers. But news of custom Easton gloves renewed my interest, so when I was in British Columbia this year, I had to stop at The Hockey Shop in Surrey. Once I slipped my hand into the new 2015 Pro+ glove, I was hooked. And after chatting with the internet-famous Jesse and talking gear with him, my mind was made up. This is the glove that set me on my path towards this custom order. SPECS Model: Pro+ Fit: Narrow Size: 14” -1/2" cuff Foam: EVA dual density PE insert: 1.5 mm Thumb: flex Palm: Pittard digital 0.85 mm Overlay: Pittard digital 0.85 mm Gusset: Poly knit black (stretch) Palm fit: standard Finger length: standard Gusset height: -1/4" Cuff length: -1/2" Embroidery: CHRISLE9 Pinky side: LET’S DO THIS! Easton Pro+ glove, front and side. Easton Pro+ glove, back. FIT My first impression was very positive when I slipped on the narrow version of the Pro+ gloves. It was my preferred fit: narrow without being tight. For years, Easton’s finger length would be too short or too long for me, but this version of the glove had finger lengths that fit me perfectly. Nice! Easton Pro+ glove, 14”, narrow fit. I am very fortunate that I was able to try the glove in person and make personalized tweaks. The Hockey Shop had the four variations of the Pro+ glove: standard, narrow, wide, and short. Pro+ glove in wide (orange), short (baby blue), standard (gray), narrow (gold). The order form illustrated the fit options: Cuff length, finger length, palm fit, gusset height. I opted to decrease the gusset height by 1/4". That eliminates excess material. This feature is on another pro glove that I own, and I knew that I liked the more responsive feel in my fingers. Seems to be a popular option nowadays, especially for those who are repalming their gloves. Finger gussets, -1/4" height. Short cuffs look cool. Easy as that! Options were to go +1/2" or -1/2". I’m not concerned about slashes to my wrist, so no need to be like Zach Parise. Cuff, -1/4". Palm fit could go +1/4" or -1/4". Finger length could go +1/4" or -1/4". I went standard for both of these options. Again, it was nice to try on the glove in person and decide whether or not I wanted to change these options. PROTECTION Since I don’t play in a competitive league, I did not maximize the protection options. Standard features were good enough for me. Easton describes the “EVA dual density” option as “lightweight + comfortable”. The other main option was “EPP”: “lightweight + protective”. These two options are chosen pretty equally, so it came down to personal preference. The PE insert comes as 1.5 mm (standard), which works out to be ~60 g, or 2.0 mm, which is 80 g. It’s possible to order without the PE inserts, too. The hockey glove thumb is designed around an important feature: preventing hyperextension (i.e. pulling it back too far). That’s why gloves usually brag about their “lock thumb”. Flexing the thumb, on the other hand, is a specific feature that requires extra parts for flexing and preventing hyperextension. I’m not sure that I involve my thumb as much as I think I do, but I like the idea of flexing the thumb when I want to, so that’s why I chose that option. Flex thumb, unflexed. Flex thumb, flexed. WEIGHT A single glove weighed 380 g (or 13.4 oz) on the scale I used. There’s a good heft to them. For the sake of comparison, Total Hockey’s website lists the weights for other comparable four-roll 14” gloves: the Bauer Nexus 1000 is 326 g (11.5 oz) and the Warrior Dynasty AX1 is 300 g (10.6 oz). DURABILITY The glove shell is made with “ProLite Tex”, which Easton describes as a “lightweight and durable knit fabric shell”. (There was not an option for a synthetic leather, which would have been nice for the white sections.) It holds up well enough, presumably, as these gloves are the same ones as pro orders. The palms are Pittard digital palms. It’s a popular pro option because it’s thin and grippy. It’s marketed as a performance product, so users need to be aware that it may wear out more quickly than other materials. For the overlay, which goes across the palmar creases of the palm, I chose to go with the digital material. Digital palm with digital overlay. For all of the talk about feel, this palm feels thicker than I expected! It’s listed as 0.85 mm on the form. Maybe I need to break in the palms a bit more to get a better assessment of it. Maybe I could’ve gone without the overlay. Other options from Easton included Ax Suede white (0.75 mm, found on their retail 2015 Synergy glove), Velukid brown (0.8 mm, a microsuede material that they call “Tactik” on their retail 2015 Stealth glove), Apco beige (0.8 mm, a “very soft beige microsuede material with lots of usage in the NHL but not the most durable”), Apco grey (1.0 mm), Nash beige (1.0 mm), and Nash sure grip. I believe that the retail Pro 10 glove has grey Nash with a Nash sure grip overlay. The gussets (the space between the palm and the foam padding) are black stretch poly knit. Many people opt for mesh gussets for improved ventilation, but I get the sense that mesh gets chewed up pretty fast. I think that the poly knit will do just fine, and, in fact, it’s a common option on pro and high-end retail gloves. The gussets usually match the palm material, but Easton doesn’t do digital gussets because of durability issues. Black stretch poly knit gussets, -1/4" height. One option intrigued me: a hybrid gusset! It starts with either a poly knit or mesh gusset at the base of the fingers, but the fingertips are covered with the palm material. You actually see it on the retail Pro 10 glove, and it’s also seen on other retail gloves. (Look for it!) I ultimately didn’t go for it because I’ll want to repalm my gloves eventually and don’t want them to be unnecessarily complicated for the repair job. Retail Easton Pro 10 glove, with hybrid gussets. Look closely between the fingers next time... (Photo credit: Total Hockey) Speaking of repalming, when it happens, I’m going with Pat Rivest at Custom Pro Repair. He used to work for Warrior before the Montreal factory closed down, so now he’s opened up a shop. He was their main pro glove person, so he’s as good as you can get for getting a factory-level job. Check out his work on his Facebook page or the Sports 2K thread. COLORS Honestly, being able to have custom colors was the tipping point for making the order. My favorite team glove is the Washington Capitals, such as the Warrior Luxe and the CCM CL, and so I put them into Edmonton Oilers colors with a few tweaks. Some design elements include a white cuff roll (like Jacks 97), white side block (like with the Lighting (classic) and the Devils), bright cuff+flare cuff that contrasts with the back rolls (like Eagle PPF in “design 7” or Jurinko’s Warrior gloves), and outline logo (something that I really liked from classic Eagle gloves). The outline logo is the same thing that I did on my goalie equipment, so there’s that continuity with my custom gear! Contrasting colors to make a statement! One small change that I’d consider is adjusting the binding at different locations. Check out the binding on the retro Calgary gloves: yellow with red cuff, but red with red backrolls. EMBROIDERY There’s the standard embroidery on the cuff and an additional spot on the pinky side padding. “Let’s do this!” is a personal slogan that I’ve added to other custom gear, like my catcher and my mask. There’s an option to add a team logo, and Easton accepted my personal “rice man” logo! CHRISLE9. LET’S DO THIS! “Rice man” logo. ORDERING It feels like the current go-to person for custom hockey gloves is Jesse from The Hockey Shop. He’s done a lot of custom work, especially with Eagle, so his reputation preceded him when I stopped in the store. His industry knowledge, coupled with a personable attitude and professional work ethic, made for an easy process. He answered emails in a timely manner, and he always looked for answers to anything he didn’t know. He was clear to outline what he could and couldn’t deliver, and I appreciated the honesty. I’d be happy to recommend him and direct people to his services. After all the details were in, Easton created a mock-up that required my approval. Once done, the order was in! The factory is in China, and took about three weeks for production and 1 week to ship to me in Canada. Very smooth transaction. Easton’s mockup. CONCLUSION I’m very happy that the option for a custom Easton glove is available to the public, and they’ve delivered very well on making the glove to my specifications. I can’t wait to hit the ice with them! I plan to provide an update about on-ice performance once the season starts up. The ordering process was great with Jesse from The Hockey Shop. A look at his track record reflects his commitment to customer service, and I recommend him for custom work.

  24. As the title states, I am looking for a new pair of gloves for next season. My current gloves are 13" Easton EQ50s, and too many holes have developed in the fingers and palms, not to mention the odor that seems impossible to get rid of. I'm kind of on the fence between getting a new 13" or 14" pair, considering my hand seems to fit okay in some brands of gloves but not in others of the same size. The max I would spend is probably $120 on a pair of gloves. I'm currently using a stick with grip, so I feel that may be a reason for the holes developing. I went to Total Hockey to try on a few pair and asked someone there what they would recommend, but they weren't much help. I am interested in a few pair, but would like your guys' take on them: Easton PRO 10 Warrior Dynasty AX2 (Never seen a 13.5" size before until these) CCM 4-Roll Pro III (How well will the AX Suede hold up on a stick with grip?) CCM 28K KFS (Look interesting, but haven't heard much about them. They look pretty new)
