  1. I have two very different sized feet. I broke my growth plate when I was a kid. I have a left size 13 and a right 11 to 11.5 They don't even make size 13 retail anymore, but I've always just gone with the bigger size and had lot of room at the end of my smaller foot toe. Not sure how much this has affected my skating, but I've also only played about 6 years as an adult. Some back ground info (to help me choose which skate is best for me and dropping some serious $$) I learned how to skate on Reebok 17k's and am a big guy. 6'4" 245 lb ish. I didn't know it at the time but they were a VERY soft boot. Once they finally gave out I ended up with a top of the line or high model size 13 EE CCM jetspeed and HATED them for the longest time. They are just too still for me and or my ability level. I've had them about 2 years now and gotten used to the stiffness to an extent, but am a fairly upright skater with bad knees and have never felt as fast on them as the 17ks, especially on take off or in tight. I might be able to get away with a size 12 and meet in the middle of both feet. but if not i need to go full custom for size 13. It looks like the 80k will be more my style with the boot being a bit softer and more flexible than the others on the market, but I'm also considering true/VH. The true's are very stiff and a bit heavy. I'm pretty sold on the 80k's and they DO now offer a full custom order option. I'm open to whatever company can fit my weird feet needs, but also looking for any input or advice. I might be able to save money and go with a size 11 on my small foot and a 12 on the bigger (I guess when ordering you can now get two different size skates mailed to a pro shop). Or if I'd be better off with a full custom mold - but have been told having a different size blade holder/steel in general could feel weird or not be a good thing, similar to a car out of alighment with such a drastic foot size difference. 1.5 - 2 sizes. I'm also curious if the size 12 80k DOES indeed fit, it only comes in D and I've always had EE, but have read they have very thick moldable pads so maybe it would stretch. Help!
  2. Custom made CCM 70K's, SR size 9.5. $300 (will accept reasonable offers) At recommendations, my son tried retail 70K's (coming off older Jetspeeds). Had an issue with the boots and CCM made him these skates. Unfortunately, he cannot come to terms with these, as they hurt his right foot (apparently due to a past foot fracture, long story, but they guys at Pure Hockey in Cranberry TWP, PA helped us find the right boot and identify his issue with the Bauer scanning fit system...go figure). He used them only in practice 5-6 times. *Please know that both boots have been punched at the forefoot and in the arch! Bottom line, trying to get sell these, as they are just sitting around the house, as my son has moved on to CCM Tacks (and no pain). If there are any questions, let me know!
  3. Hey everyone, I just picked up two pairs of CCM Ribcore 50ks in a 8.5EE and a 9EE and I'm trying to figure out which one to keep based on length. The 9 feels about the right length but I'm worried that when it gets baked and breaks in, that it'll be too long. It also feels just a hair roomy overall. I think if the skates ended up fitting like this after baking and skating, it would be a good enough fit. The 8.5 feels great around the heel but my toes are a little crammed in the front. Ideally, I'd want this skate but with a little more length (1/4" maybe). There is a lot of padding in the 50ks so I'm not sure how much it'll condense. I think the perfect size would be 8 3/4 EE. Any advice on which one to keep? *I do need the EE width as I have wide feet.
  4. Hey everyone! I have a general question for everyone on the forum. Let me start by saying I have played hockey my entire life and still play one to two times a week in Men's leagues. I grew up playing with the typical $30 wood stick like everyone else who grew up in my day and of course through high school and college used the first composites when they came to market. Being only a men's league player, buying a stick is no longer an imminent need and I used to be able to find a prior year top of the line model for about $150 and considered that to be reasonable. Unfortunately this year I wasn't so lucky and had to bite the bullet and pay full sticker, $260 for one of the new top of the line models. While checking out I cringed at the thought of having to fully outfit the two kids my wife and I are planning on having in the next few years!! How can any parent afford that!? That said, I have a client and good friend who manufactures all things composite. I worked with him and his engineers and produced some hockey sticks to test out on the ice. All the sticks are made of top of the line composite materials and have a weight / balance comparable to all the other top of the line sticks on the market. I tested them myself and a few guys on my team also tested them out. All feedback was positive, however, cost to make the sticks still are not all that cheap since the composite materials themselves are fairly expensive! While costs to manufacture still are not at the "wood stick" level I believe there are ways we get these high quality sticks into the hands of all hockey players reasonable prices. First, I would plan to not sponsor any professional players. I believe part of the huge price tag on the Easton, Bauer, Reebok etc. lines is largely due to the multiple multi-million dollar contracts with pro players and the hundreds of free sticks they break every year. Why should you and I pay for that?! Second is to sell direct to consumer through the web, reducing cost in the supply chain. My biggest concern and question to you guys is would you buy a top of the line quality hockey stick for $150 if it wasn't endorsed by any pro player? Does the $150 price tag automatically imply low quality even if it is of the same or better quality than other top of the line sticks? How can I gain credibility in the market without a pricey sponsorship? I would love any feedback you guys can give!
  5. I'm a 6 foot winger looking to buy a new stick and I am looking at a easton v9e warrior qr1 and a ccm ribcore. These are all Prostock. I weigh around 150 pounds. I primarily take snapshots and wristshots but I also have a nice snapshot. And I would like to get maximum power out of a low kick stick while not sacrificing power. I also want good luck feel, so which one would you reccomend? While not sacrifing puck feel*
