I was wondering if anyone on here has experience with verified cat eye masks, or even just cat eye mask in general. Was considering buying this one:
Is it worth it? What are all of the benefits of cat eye?
Got a skate cut that is both a long cleaner cut and a few smaller ones like the blade chattered across the pad (both together, probably from the same incident, just a guy crashing in on a rush, only found it the other day so might have been a while ago). Planning on tackling this repair tonight/this week, looking for any advice for how to pull it off and make it look as good as possible.
I've got some automotive goop to use, but mostly curious on if anyone has done this and how best to finish it? Do I just keep the goop inside the cut and let it bond that way, or do I spread some of it along the top of the cut as well with some kind of edge to smooth it out? I've seen shoe goo suggested, which is from the same company it looks like, and this stuff is also for like vinyl seat tears so I think it should be good for this too.
(will post pics of the damage at least tonight)
Was about to post this in response to @Aquilzz in the show off your gear thread, but figured it would fit better on its own.
Based on the Optik glove I demo'd vs. the Bauer gloves I've had, the Optik felt like the palm was less substantial in terms of padding. I felt the puck way more on my palm than I've ever been used to.
Wondering if a "pro palm" at Brian's with extra break in time would approximate what I feel with a well broken in Bauer? Is Brian's pro palm the same as other practice palms, or something in between stock and practice?
I wouldn't ever consider getting a Practice palm in the Bauer, that would be waaaay too much overkill, but I felt like I just really felt the puck a little too much in the stock Optik I tried out. @TheGoalNet has mentioned in other threads that practice palms are overkill for anyone not actually practicing against high caliber shooters, and I agree with that, just wondering if Brian's pro palm is something in the middle?
Note: I'm asking this mainly because although I love my 2S set, there's something about the Brian's gloves with BOA where I'm considering getting a custom glove at some point.
