  1. New for 2017, the Super Tacks is CCM's top-end girdle. Here's it out of the box: The shell is removable, with leg zippers and +1 adjustment. It has three points in which it attaches to the girdle. There is a second loop under the belt in which the shell strap hooks into. Adjustable spine pad, with D3O. Now, here's the girdle without the shell. Open front crotch. However, there is a step-in part in the seat of the girdle. Opening it up, you can see it. The tailbone pad is built in, similar to 9k. There are 4 adjustment tabs in the girdle. Two of them extend all the way up to the kidney pad and bring the back of the thigh pad up... And the other two bring the front of the thigh pad up. Hip pads are similar to 9k. There's a lot to like here. Having the open crotch is good, and there's no shortness of protection as well. However, two things could be potentially nagging - the step-in part is one. It doesn't really seem to be necessary - the points it's attaching to is the groin pad area and the tailbone pad. The second one is the lack of stretch material in the top of the girdle. The only part where there's any sort of stretch is a 1.5" piece where the velcro tab is that mates to the belly pad. I'm hoping to skate in them shortly. Any questions or additional pictures needed, please ask. Thanks goes to CCM for sending me this set. I've been a girdle wearer for almost 20 years so it's a category that always intrigues me.
  2. As you all most likely know, Easton's E700 helmet will hit stores on Dec 1 in three initial colors; white, black and matte black. Easton was gracious enough to send MSH a couple of helmets and so naturally, the first thing I did was to tear it apart so that people understand the differences. That is the helmet, with all of the padding stripped. The pads are velcro'd on, and are machine-washable and replaceable. Easton will sell that and the adjustment system separately. So, gone is the baseball-hat style adjustment system, and is replaced by a Giro system which anchors in three spots on the helmet and can be moved in or out to accommodate sizing within the range. The back adjustment slides up and down as well. Pretty neat system. It is fitting better than the S19 as well as a bit wider. Word to the wise; do not use any solvents (including alcohol) on the matte shell. It will discolor the helmet. Also; for those who wear facial protection; the helmet is definitely fitting better in that aspect. It was a bit difficult to mount visors on the S19; it took me less than a minute to mount an Oakley visor without any stress on the visor. Questions?
