  1. Sticks - New for 2017 is the 2nd gen XCore product; the XC9 ACF. With a focus on swing weight, the XC9 ACF's balance point was tweaked to improve on that. It was lightened a bit in the shaft and blade - coming in at 415g. Their Braided Rib Tech that debuted on the A6.0 SBP last year has been added to the entire X series line. On the graphics side, the stick was given a bit more color in the upper part of the shaft. Available in all of True's patterns, however, a MC2 was added to the retail lineup. It is a xx9 clone. The stick is coming in at $279.99 USD in senior length. On the youth and junior side, the XC9 is offered in 4 different flexes; it is called the U-Flex. Comes in at 20/30/40/50 flex. The A Series is unchanged for 2017. Gloves - Unchanged for 2017. Pants - This is a new category for True for 2017, and it's an interesting take on the category. Their X-Tec Suspension protective package is in the hip and kidney pads - there is a X strap that goes across the pad on the side that sits against the body, creating a space between the body and the actual pad. Upon impact, it allows for the brunt of the impact to be dispersed, minimizing it as it carries through to the body. Here are some examples: The pant comes in two forward-canted fits, the XC9 which is a fitted pant, and the A6.0 SBP which is a classic fit. They both come with 800 denier nylon, zippers, antimicrobial liner and a 2" height adjustment system that is achieved with grommets. Also to note, the hip pads are cut differently. They are segmented for better flexion. So instead of having a single piece of curved plastic, you have a straight piece running down the pant (like goalie pants used to have) then the actual front hip pad.
  2. Skates - Both Supreme and Nexus have been revamped for 2016. Starting with Supreme, the 1S (the TotalONE name is essentially removed from the product) features a Titanium Curv outer (similar to the aluminized outer the 1X has, however, titanium; giving it a different look. The tongue is a 52oz felt that is sewn at the edges, with a 37.5 comfort pad backing it. The Reflex tongue inserts have been reworked into the CFlex; no more annoying button to press the insert in place. The tendon guard has also been reworked - in the latest iteration of their quest of extract more range of motion, the tendon guard comes with two inserts, a silver one (soft) and a black one (hard.) To adjust the stiffness of the tendon guard, you move it forward, and the inserts have teeth on them. You align the bottom, then snap the tendon guard back. The flexibility has been rated in Newtons - flexed out to 20mm. No insert - 26 Soft - 53 Hard - 100 For reference, the MX3 was 51. SpeedPlate, LS4 and 37.5 liner round out the skate. $949 sr/$649 jr. Comes out Apr 15th. The S190 falls in at $729 with a 48 oz felt tongue, flexible (not customizable) tendon guard, Ti Curv and LS3 steel. The S180 also features Curv, however with a HydraMax liner, flexible tendon guard (same as MX3) and LS2. The Nexus line starts out with the 1N. Bauer's studies justify having a wider based skate on the market. The 1N has been hollowed out and a bit softer - even though they have LS4, the skate comes in at the same weight as the 8000 with Fusion steel. Injected facing with locking eyelets on the 4th and 5th eyelet. Form-Fit Lite split 52/40 oz tongue with Curv insert. SpeedPlate as well, coming in at $949. The N9000 also has a Curv outer, and the boot is similar in stiffness of a Supreme 190. LS3 with a HydraMax2 liner, coming in at $599. There won't be a pro Tech Mesh option at retail like the Nexus 7000. However, the 1N and the 7000 V-Cut will be custom options. SpeedPlate will be available aftermarket in April. Sticks - Nothing new on sticks from the Fall, however, a new Vapor stick line will be covered in a separate review down the road. Helmets - EPP has been eliminated in Bauer's Elite helmet lineup. The Re-Akt 75 replaces the 7500 and IMS 7.0. 6 different foam densities in the helmet, as well as Seven+ in the rear, resulting in an 18% improvement in impact management. XRD foam in the temple area and then features the comfort foam from the IMS 5.0 on top. Customizable vent options and comes with the new Profile III stainless steel cage (same shape as Profile II) $119 standard, $159 combo. Gloves - Vapor and Nexus glove lines have been redone this year. Starting out with the 1X Pro; full nylon glove with XRD for protection, 37.5 liner and a pro ivory palm with an stamped overlay. The 1X glove features XRD with a comfort foam on top of it, 37.5 liner and due to Bauer's exclusivity with AX Suede, their new Quattro Grip palm with a wear patch (very similar to their Absorb patch) The Nexus gloves still features that 4-roll volume fit. Starting with the 1N, a pro style flex cuff and 37.5 liner, Bauer's 3-pc lock thumb, and on the protection side, Seven + is embedded in the bankrolls between foam and a PE sheet on top. Pro ivory palm that has stamps on it for grip, with mesh gussets. 1N is coming in at $189. For those who were a fan of the 800 glove, the N9000 replaces that at $129. Protective - Vapor and Nexus get the update this year - starting with 1X, which is a very interesting line. Coming from the OD1N project in which they used Curv as a protective component, the 1X line features Curv in all of their pieces; sternum, bicep, shin and forearm, making it the lightest protective suite in the industry. On the shoulder pad, the caps, front, side and rear panels are all Aerolite foam, however, the sternum and biceps have a layer of Curv. Also new is Transfer Mesh, which is a breathable fabric that accents 37.5 by allowing it to evaporate faster by allowing more air flow in key areas. On the shin pad, the shin cap is Curv/Aerolite, and the calf, wing and thigh pads are all Aerolite. Transfer Mesh on them as well. The elbow cap has a molded medium density foam outer, and features Aerolite in the bicep, but the forearm is a combination of Curv, Aerolite and HD inserts. Transfer Mesh as well with a 3 strap system. Coming in at $189 for shoulder, $149 for elbow and $169 for shin. The X900 replaces APX2, just at a lower price point. $139 shoulder, $99 for elbow and $119 for shin. The 1N has been overhauled as well. In the shoulder, the cap and sternum have Seven+ in between multi-density foam and the rest of the pad is HD foam. Seven+ is designed for multiple impacts, and in key areas, has a visible window. The shin width has been changed in the cap and knee cap as well. Seven+ in the calf guard with a PE insert for additional protection. It also features the new Tune-Fit strap system; instead of having one length on the strap, it can be made longer by adjusting it, and it can anchor anywhere the user deems comfortable. The elbow pad is a 2-pc construction with Seven+ in the forearm. $159 for the shin, $109 for the elbow and $129 for the shin. On the pant side, 1X comes in with Curv and Aerolite in the spine, hip and thigh. 840D nylon outer in the thigh and hip, with a 1+ extension fit length adjustment. There is a new inner belt system that secures the pant to the body, allowing the rest of the pant to be a bit freer for increased mobility. Coming in at $209. The 1N pant is a traditional fitting pant, with Seven+ in the spine, with molded foam pieces in the hip and kidney, and 2-pc thigh pads. 840D outer with Extension fit and suspender buttons.
  3. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/196-2016-true-hockey-catalogue/ Sticks - True has updated their A-Series line for 2016. While the majority of the features from the previous line carry over into the new line, the difference is what has been done to the blade. Their Braided Rib Technology consists of two braided carbon fiber tubes that run the length of the blade. One is in the center of the blade, and the second one is below, in between the center tube and the bottom of the blade. It being a braided tube also means that the fibers are continuous, helping to prevent cracks. This blade has been added to each of the A-Series sticks for 2016. This has resulted in a 50% stronger blade than last year's A-Series AB II blade. The A6.0 SBP (strength/balance/power) comes in at 400g at senior and in 6 patterns. Matte grip finish with a double-concave squared-corner shaft dimension. The 5.2 SBP also features a BRT blade. That one is coming in at 420g, 6 patterns. And even yet, the 4.5 SBT is what True is calling their "team" stick - typically what is the price point right above top end from most competitors. BRT blade, 6 patterns, coming in at 445g. The 2.2 comes in at 490g under $100. 3 patterns, 2 flexes. The 6.0 SBP also comes in shaft and blade form; both standard and tapered offerings. Xcore carries over from 2015. Gloves - True has two glove families for 2016 - The X series, which is an anatomical fit, and the A series, which is a classic 4 roll glove. The top end gloves share the same technologies - EPP protection with PE inserts on top, nylon and their Trueflex lock thumb. However, the story is the palm. Both the A 6.0 SBP and the XC9 have a removable palm. The way the Z Palm works is that there is a continuous zipper that starts at the base of where the palm meets the back cuff and continues along the outer of the gusset. The zipper is on the top part of the gusset so it isn't felt when the glove is on your hand. The top of the zipper is bound so that once the zipper is done, the teeth are tucked underneath. The Z Palm comes with 5 different options - standard, which is 1mm Clarino with an .6 overlay. The Z Pro is .6 Clarino, which makes for a very thin palm. The Z-Grip is .75 AX Suede with a .5 grip overlay and has a grip print in the index and middle fingers. The Z-Fit is .6 Torray with a .6 overlay, making it a flexier palm. The Z-Power is 1mm Clarino and a 1mm overlay, with a .6 overlay on the index and middle fingers. The neat thing about this is that all of the palms are interchangeable. For instance, on custom gloves that I have made in the past, I always go for the thinnest possible, but typically go with an overlaid palm on my top hand. This would be possible with these gloves without going with a custom order. The 4.5 glove and XC7 glove are slightly down spec'd - no Z-Palm and the EPP foams are 4mm smaller than the top-end glove.
  4. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/192-2015-warrior-hockey-catalogue/ We are doing a different format for Warrior this time - since they have staggered launches we will review as the product gets closer to being in stores. Gloves - New glove line for Covert, which is Warrior's tapered fit line. Starting with the QR1 glove, which is EXTREMELY light, mainly due to the new protective package, which is named Phantom. It is a blend of EPP foams, with a Bone System (which dates back to the original Projekt glove, which was best-in-class on protection) pod on top of it. The glove also features Warrior's first ever flexible thumb, which is named Axis. The glove is also rounded out with a SmartPalm (which eliminates the side pad that is on most gloves on the market and integrates with the entire glove) and continues with the Polygiene liner that was debuted on the AX1 glove last season. The QR Pro glove has all of the features named above, but a different (nash) palm with a traditional side pad. Protective - new Dynasty line for protective, which starts with the HD1 series. On the shoulder pad, you're seeing the latest evolution of SmartCap on the shoulder cap, as well as a new jacket, that is extremely flexible with the IST Gusset. The elbow pad features SmartCap, as well as a sling wrap strap to hold the pad in place. On the forearm, there is a perforated slash guard that helps with ventilation. The shin pad has SmartCap, as well as a sling wrap strap that goes below the knee and a single strap for the calf wing, which is perforated as well. All of the pads have the FnC liner that is on all high-end Warrior product. The Pro line changes colors (it's white) and is what is offered to pro teams in terms of features. Traditional jacket on the shoulder pads, and the elbow pads have an extended forearm (think Jofa xx55) One item that seems to get a bit of buzz is the Dynasty girdle. There's a lot to like here if you are a girdle guy - you're getting foams and plastic on the thigh and hips, and perforated foams everywhere else in the pad. You're getting a 50/fifty spine and kidney pad, as well as Polygiene liner. Integrated cup as well.
  5. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/186-2015-bauer-hockey-catalogue/ Skates - Much has been made of the OD1N project that Bauer unveiled last year; to refresh memories who may have forgotten - it was a concept in which their product managers were challenged to think outside the box with an "unlimited" budget. The skate that resulted from the project was a super-light boot with a next-generation carbon fiber holder. The point of it was not to release that particular skate, but to slowly take concepts from it and introduce it to future projects. The 1X is the first skate to offer the OD1N technology - that is what the 1 in the 1X stands for. It's a callout to OD1N. The aluminized Curv and the rib pattern is directly from the OD1N skate. Gone also is plastic in the ankle sheet; it is now Curv. All of these components have resulted in a 50g weight reduction from APX2. Continuing with the boot, 37.5 has been added to the liner as well as a redesigned Formfit tongue - it is 52oz on top, then slims down to 40oz felt. The metatarsal guard (lace bite protector) is now Curv instead of standard plastic. The injected facing has also been tweaked on 1X. It has a bit more wrap to it - more than APX2, but not as much as Supreme. And the lace lock eyelets that is on the MX3 is now on 1X, but only on the 3rd and 4th eyelet from the top. The other story with the 1X is that it includes the Speed Plate insole. The objective with Speed Plate was trying to achieve balance - from the start, to the middle and then to the end of the stride. Bauer invested in sensor technology to investigate what happens in a skate. This was a project that was being worked on for 5 years. The first key was to identify the COP (Center Of Pressure) which is the most concentrated pressure point on the bottom of the foot while in the skate, and finding a way to reduce it. The Speed Plate features their Recovery Alloy Technology, which are polyurethane materials that are able to be heated, then molded. It requires 70º F to activate (the heat you generate while skating won't be enough to do it) and it is put in the skate oven, then molded into the skate. There is monochromatic ink on the insole which disappears once it is at optimal temp for molding - and it can be molded over and over again, and in any type of skate. The reason why it is molded in the skate is because it achieves 3 things - the bottom edge and top sole marry together, resulting in a reduction of negative space; a heel pocket and cup gets formed, and the arch is also molded as well. The Speed Plate will come stock on the 1X skate, as well as the new LS4 steel. Bauer took a look at the microstructure of skate steel, and studied the grains for uniformity and consistency. The result from those findings were a 10% harder steel from LS3 - registering between 58-60 on the Rockwell hardness scale (for reference, LS3 is 53.) It is LS3 height, with a 10' radius and an emery finish. The profile is a bit more user-friendly than LS3 as well. The 1X will price out at $899.99 and will be available in late Spring 2015. The X900 replaces the X100 from 2014, coming in at 800 grams at a size 8. LS3 steel and the FormFit 3 tongue (previously on APX2) is on this skate. $729.99 The X800 features Curv composite and LS2 steel, with the Pro TPU sole that is on the Supreme 180. $549.99. The X700 features a Tech Mesh outer as well as Bauer's new LS1 steel option, which is a grade of steel between the LS2 and the S Stainless. $399.99. Supreme and Nexus skates are unchanged, however, there is a Prodigy youth skate, which comes with a 13' radius for stability for beginning skaters, and pull and lock eyelets. Sticks - The Vapor line gets the upgrade this year, and the 1X leads the line. The blade core has been tweaked with Aero-Sense II, and while maintaining the same shaft diameter, the new addition is an aggressive taper design they have called QRT - which stands for Quick Release Technology, resulting in an ultra-low kickpoint. The 1X stick will hit retailers in mid-February 2015. The X900 stick is a fused stick, however still has Aero-Sense II blade core and QRT in the senior/int models. Full 12k carbon from shaft to blade. The X800 loses Aero-Sense II, however, still QRT and full 3k carbon from shaft to blade. Supreme and Nexus models are unchanged. Also, note the addition of the P28 Giroux pattern. It debuts on the new Vapor line. Supreme and Nexus will get it next time around. Helmets - Unchanged other than the addition of a Re-Akt 100 in youth. Protective and Gloves - Supreme gets the makeover this year, starting with gloves. Continuing with the anatomical fit that Supreme is known for, 37.5 is added to the liner as well a new protection package - FleXorb (flexible, segmented PoronXRD) is sandwiched between mid-density foam and a PE insert on top. The Quattro+ AX Suede palm which debuted on the APX2 is also added to the MX3 glove. A flex cuff and a 3-pc flex lock thumb round out the MX3. The 190 follows the MX3, but with the PoronXRD protection package (what was on NXG) and no 37.5 liner. Vapor and Nexus gloves unchanged. The MX3 protective starting out with shoulder pads feature FleXorb and Vent Armor in the sternum, but essentially throughout the entire pad you're seeing a ton of Vent Armor - through the chest and spine. The elbow pad features FleXorb inside the elbow donut, and once again, a ton of Vent Armor - in the cap and bicep and forearm guard. The cap does have a soft covering on it. The shin pad has molded Vent armor on the calf wing, and the interior knee is FleXorb as well. On the 190, the FleXorb becomes standard PoronXRD, just like the NXG line that preceded it. There is a new MX3 girdle as well, and the lines are still being blurred - the MX3 looks more like an actual pant, especially once it's paired with the shell, which goes as far as to have a molded belt. Continuing with the PoronXRD which was in the spine pad of the NXG, the MX3 now has more protection - with the addition of Vent Armor. The kidney padding has a bit more flare than on the NXG - it goes full up to the edge; whereas on the NXG it would stop at the kidney and then have a smaller piece of foam to round off the top. Vapor and Nexus lines are unchanged.
  6. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/189-2015-ccm-hockey-catalogue/ I will write the review once I've had more time with the product.
  7. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/187-2015-stx-hockey-catalogue/ In 2014, STX released a line of high-end sticks and gloves, and now have continued to round out their lines by adding a protective category to it. Protective - Just like with sticks and gloves, the Surgeon and Stallion lines are distinct with each other and play into the stories STX has been telling with each line. The Surgeon series is their "Precision Fit", which is an anatomical, sleeker fit. On the Surgeon 500 shoulder pad, it's all foam. Every bit of it is foam. But, some pretty cool features - the bicep pads don't have straps; it has a sleeve in which you slip your arm into. And on the bottom of the shoulder pad chest area, they have tabs that stick on top of the strap, providing a tighter fit and zero interference with the jersey sticking to the end of the strap. The Stallion is their "Power Fit" which means it is a more rugged pad. The padding is fuller, including more padding in the collarbone and ribs, and the sternum and spine plate is much bigger than what is on the Surgeon. The bicep pad is a two-piece pad as well, that can be adjusted for length. On the elbow pad front, the Surgeon is a 3 piece elbow pad and the Stallion is a 2-piece. Both feature the 360+ Strap, which is the bottom strap of the low pad - it goes completely around the forearm. The Surgeon has a full-length spandex sleeve, whereas the Stallion has a half-length sleeve. The Stallion does have additional protection in the forearm area, because, you know, rugged. The shins are also completely different. The Surgeon is going to be a bit tapered by design, and comprised entirely of foam. The 360+ strap wraps completely around the pad right below the knee, and has a neoprene strap that splits for two attachment points over the calf wing. The Stallion is wider and more of a traditional fit. Still has the 360+ Strap, however, has something very interesting - a cut-resistant sleeve. In this age of players getting cut behind the shin pad, that's a pretty cool feature. On the 300 series protective, you're still maintaining the same fit stories, however, the foams are down spec'd to less high-density foam (more EVA foam) but the 360+ Strap is still present.
  8. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/188-2015-sher-wood-hockey-catalogue/ Give me a few days to review this - going through inventory week at my stores.
  9. http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/195-2015-true-hockey-catalogue/ True had a very good lineup last year that was received well, however, there wasn't a very big differentiator in terms of technology between them and competitors for the most part. This year, though, is different. True's new stick is the XCORE 9, which is very, very interesting. The blade features a urethane insert that is placed in the core of the blade. The insert compresses - when you flip the stick over, you can feel it give if you stick your fingernail in it - and the premise behind it is that it gives the shooter better puck feel as it dampens when the puck strikes the blade, however produces more puck spin when shooting, creating a heavier shot. The insert starts in the heel and extends slightly past center, giving the blade a bigger sweet spot. Full 100% carbon fiber on the stick, and still featuring all of the technologies that were on the A6.0. The rest of the line carries over from 2014.
  10. http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/170-2014-sher-wood-catalogue/ I'll work on the review in the coming days.
  11. http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/175-2014-reebokccm-catalogue/ Skates - We won't be covering the Tacks skate line until the lockdown has been removed. In the catalogue, that has a hockey tape theme, the skate is "covered" by tape. I will reinsert those pages in March, but I imagine Reebok/CCM will provide new pages. RBZ skate line is unchanged. The Reebok line has been updated - with a black theme, to go with the RIbcor theme. The quarter package of the skate has been updated with ribs for additional flex; down spec'd versions of the quarter package extend down to the 26k. You're still getting the Pump, liner and felt tongue from the 20k, however, the SB 4.0 holder which debuted on the RBZ skate is on the Ribcor - but with a black version of the SB steel. The SB Black will also be on the 30k skate as well. Sticks - both lines unchanged. One thing to note is a new CCM pattern; Galchenyuk, which is a Reebok Phaneuf/Drury/Parise clone. Helmets - CCM finally gets a new helmet after many years, and it's pretty apparent as to why it took some time - they had been working with the University of Ottawa (same department who validated Blackstone's FBV) and others on this helmet. Addressing both linear and rotational impacts, the Resistance offers protection in two ways; their REMa System (don't mind the catalogue, REMa stands for Rotational Energy Management) are 4 bladders which are liquid (oil) filled. The premise behind it is that as it the head rotates with the helmet, the bladders helps to slow it down, reducing the impact. On the linear side of things, there are pods - a combination of EPP/U-Foam and plastic shock absorbers which compress/disperse at point of impact. It's tool-less, with the adjustment on the back of the helmet. The Resistance will MSRP at $229.99. The Resistance 300 have the REMa bladders, but no pods. $159.99 MSRP. The Resistance facemask is a 580-style mask that's stainless steel with flat wires - and the clips where the screws attach actually have foam around it, which absorb shock. It only comes in silver, however the 300 mask is regular steel and comes in all colors. Gloves - this time around, Reebok gets the update; starting with the 30k, which is their anatomical fit, and is what they are calling a two-piece glove; the hand goes into one segment of the glove and then the rest of the glove wraps around it. The backroll is a combination of EVA (U-foam) and standard HD foam - the EVA is vented for air flow. Also to note, the cuff is bindingless. CCM gloves are unchanged. Pants - Reebok is unchanged. New pants for CCM - named RBZ. It still has U-Foam in the thigh and hip, but also gains the +1 length adjustment that debuted on the Reebok pants. Protective - Reebok is unchanged. The RBZ name carries over to an updated CCM line - things of note are the shoulder pads, which no longer have the floating sternum pad like on the CL - it now is integrated into the rest of the chest. The elbow pads seem to come down longer than last year's CL, and are vented in the bicep and forearm areas.
  12. http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/files/file/176-2014-warrior-hockey-catalogue/ Sticks - Keith did a good job laying out the entire story here; http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/topic/65581-warrior-dynasty-ax1stlt-stick-lineup/ The sticks are extremely impression on the lower end of the spectrum - the weight difference at the price points is pretty crazy. Helmets - unchanged Gloves - new line in the Dynasty; as previously mentioned, Franchise has been retired. The AX1 is a 4-roll glove, however, the overall shape of the glove is different - gone is that boxy shape. The glove tends to wrap around from one end to another instead of being segmented blocks from the rolls to the middle of the glove to the top of the thumb. Not only that, it's very protective - every segment of the glove has padding - including the cuff, which is a Kovalchuk-esque cuff. Bone System is also present in the AX1. The outer of the glove is a cable knit, with nubuck in key areas (pinky stripe.) The palm is Clarino (the finger area is dotted) with mesh gussets (which have a spongy feel to them) and ribs in the top corner of the palm for grip. It also will come in a 13.5. One thing though - this is the CLEANEST glove I've ever seen. Seriously - there's absolutely ZERO excess material on the glove - it's all tucked underneath, completely seamless. Very impressed - just looked at 5 pair of top-end gloves here and every individual segment of padding has excess material past the stitch. Going down to the AX2, you're getting Tufftek and no Bone system, and a traditional Clarino palm/gusset combination. Down to the AX3, you're getting a softer glove and no Polygiene. Covert is unchanged. Protective - new pad in the DT1LT, which is actually more of an up-spec'd AX2 than a lightened AX1; the jacket is perforated for ventilation/mobility, and a different bicep guard - not the double-layered 2-way bicep guard that you see on the AX1. On the elbow pad, the bicep guard as well as the forearm wrap is changed and not as stiff as on the AX1. On the shin pad, the calf wrap is improved, as well as a fixed thigh guard - not adjustable as on the AX1 or the AX2. You may see that going forward on future shins by Warrior. Pants - unchanged.
