Picked up the pants on the weekend. Wish it was the girdle version, but for the price I couldn't resist!

CCM pants look like they are much better than current Bauer offerings.

How do you find the quality of his work compared to CPR for palms? And what was the turnaround time? Was thinking about sending a pair over for some AX suede palms

It's very good. If CPR gets an A+, HM gets an A.

With regard to basic palms and gussets (which are not exactly basic and are quite challenging), pretty close to CPR quality.

(I did have a pair of gloves come back from him a while back that were not perfectly done. Palms were sewn in slightly skewed and it created a bit of a pull towards the outside. I didn't complain as I was otherwise happy with his work and I've gotten customs that have had the same issue from factory, so I just assume it is the nature of handmade products. So far there not an issue).

HM cannot do the cuff mods, adjustment of palm sizing (wide, narrow, changing fit, etc), repairs, pinky stripe, embroidery etc that Pat can do. The only thing he will do is cut down an existing cuff, which I've had him do and his work is clean.

His gusset material options are more or less the same, and he's fine adjusting or modifying gussets.

His palm material options are pretty good, although he told me that he's planning to stop caring pearl mustang, which is what I use most of the time (got the cream deer just cuz it matched the existing gussets well and I wanted to try it). 

I basically keep my gloves in two categories-

1- are gloves that need to wait for Pat, either because I want mods that only Pat can do, or because they're rare enough that I only trust Pat with them. (Looks like gloves that need pearl palms are going to be in this category now too, which is about 10 pairs and counting lol).

2- are gloves that have already been modded by Pat or are fine the way they are, and just need a repalm. Those go to Hockey Menders.

Wanted to try retail Bauers. Nothing will be more comfortable than my custom Trues but wanted to see how retail skates wee these days. All I can say is CCM just doesn't work for me. Previous to my Trues I wore one100s for 7 years... Have I come full circle???

Did you buy them, or just try them on, or borrow someone’s to try?

I bought them but ended up returning them. They felt pretty decent overall for a retail skate. Heel lock was there. And overall just a bit of rubbing in the left pinky that I think would've gone away over time or a second bake.

They're nice but I would have waited for the Mach. Nicer looking skates and they look basically the same

I thought of this or at least get this on discount when the machs come out but I got these at 25% off. I really don't think the technology of the machs will be any diff than the ultrasonics except the tongue from the pictures Ive seen. 

I actually ended up returning these because the right skate felt really off in terms of the edge. At first I thought the right boots edge was sharpened bad bc my inside edge seemed super dull but outside bit so hard. Left skate was fine. I swapped the steel from left and right skate and still had the same issue. Not sure if it's a holder mount./ Alignment issue on the right skate but I wasn't going to spend time trying to figure the issue out. So ya. Back to my tried and trusted trues. 

I think I'll see how the catalyst skates are and maybe get scanned for those.
