Forget the Synergy, the Shanny curve!!! 

But you can order a brand new Shanny if you want, as opposed to a 1st gen. Synergy.

Where's that? Unless you're referring to Base hockey, in which case... Yeah

Only in the Praux Custom option, from what I could see, but they had it there. It’s the Kane I’m looking at, and looking again, it looks like it might have some of his mods to the stock Shanahan. PSHS’ Kane looks like a stock Shanny. I have nothing against Base. I just got a Hossa Pro blade from them.

I found Base blades to be very poor in pop, feel and durability. Went dead on me in a few games. I think the Kane pro is a bit different from Shanahan, but I can't say for sure as pshs is always out of stock lol

Very excited to get these today, can’t wait to try them out on ice. I’ll be putting together a long term review of them.

Those comfort edge pads look puny.  Is that the standard FT4 pad or did you customize that?

Not sure which part you're referring to, but i didn't change any of the padding

The spongy pad on the collar, right above the Jetspeed logo.

On a side note, people are hating on the graphics, but I actually like them.  Not an opinion you'd expect from an old dude!

I would have preferred the look of having a big JetSpeed where the CCM is, similar to  what Bauer did with Vapor and Supreme.  Then again what's more important, looks or performance?

But for future proofing CCM is better than the lineup name in big text. As a counterpoint

which I always read as “All Out. Oh CCM.”

I thought that was a fitting slogan for the pandemic year of 2020, and had to do with their inventory levels.

I give my rep crap about this every time.

 

"CCM - ALL OUT (of stock)" 🤣

Is that 1/4" advance facing? Aside of reducing the volume up top what else does it do?

Is it applied to the top 3 eyelets only? With the increased boot wrap does it impede forward flex?

as a side note it makes zero sense they ship retail skates with black steel but make it a $60 option for customs that are already $200-$400 more expensive!

Grabbed these on Ebay. Seller was in Michigan so Plymouth is a possibility.  I find the Whalers colorway hard to pass up.

Thanks to PBH, I got a new set of wheels dialed in and ready to test out. Was so impressed with the TF9s for roller that I decided to pick up a second pair for ice

Black chassis, black laces; white holder, white laces? Is that the thinking?

Didn’t think about it like that, but I guess. I always use white laces on ice skates and haven’t had black holders since the 90’s. For whatever reason I’ve always used black laces on inline skates. Makes it easy to see which skate is which at a quick glance if they’re in a bag/closet

Been a long time, and I know a lot of folks didn't like these, but these were my favorite skates back in the day. Saw a pair in my size and grabbed em for outdoor skates. Brand new, still with og Millennium wheels lol
