Still looks like a two-piece boot. 

Yes. And not even the "unibody" sole as on the UltraSonic.

Not seeing the "x-ribs" we've seen in previous models.  

Maybe they’ll make them look like they’re still there in the production version:

The red heel on the prototype Vapor looks awesome. Just the right amount of pop and identifiable from a distance/on TV while still being a classy looking black boot. I’m sure it will end up like the Ultrasonic with some horrible bright yellow racing stripes but here’s to hoping.

New True gloves.

I hate that on the next hand where the fingers of the glove don't straighten out properly. Looks like his ring finger is going off to the side. That always bothered me in gloves and I always felt that it was poor craftsmanship

True gloves used to be REALLY bad for that. But the latest XC9 were a huge improvement and made considerably better, so I have decent hopes for these.

Verbero were notorious for this. Terrible. It seems more common in very flexible gloves that are meant to move a lot. If everything isn't lined up perfectly they end up all crooked. I hope True gloves and protective get better, they're a great company and I hope they can succeed beyond skates and sticks.

Interesting... they look almost identical to the 2S Pros that came before them.

I don't mind that at all, though. My 2S Pros are easily the best pair of gloves I've ever owned. No need to fix what isn't broken.

The cuff and cuff roll are different. Cuff roll looks kinda like it has an Easton style cuff to it, and cuff has the same idea. The 2s pros have a little cutaway in the cuff roll to make room for the tab on the cuff to retract. Agree that there amazing gloves. The protection is unreal

I forgot that Crosby came into the league hosing a wooden blade. 

Somewhere in my house I have one of his ugly gold rbk sick kick shafts with a Sherwood blade in it.

I remember they pretty much put Coffey on everything.  You'd have different curves on the same rack of 5030s all marked Coffey.  I remember they also used to have a "BC" and "SC" stamped on them and I thought that meant "Big Curve" or "Small Curve".  I don't think things were as standardized back then.

Definitely not.  But it didn't matter, since you took a blowtorch to your stick the minute you got it home anyway (or at least I did).   Stock curves were for benders!

I did a few times, but always did it too much and the fiberglass wrap delaminated.

Is it my imagination, or does that  ND guy's  bubble look abnormally large? 

It isn't being worn correctly - it should be flush with the J-Hooks. It is likely slightly too large, but it would be much better if it was tighter.
