Does anyone know if you can manually replace the wires on the BOA dials on the Optik glove and blocker if they were to break? Obviously they probably aren't really in a position to be under enough stress to break but I'm seriously considering getting the glove and blocker and I wanted to ask this first.

Not that it totally answers your question. But I am pretty sure the BOA system has a lifetime guarantee, which should be replaced for free if they were to break.

Not that I have any experience doing so but... I know one can by replacement parts for the BOA system. I would imagine that means that one could replace parts as needed on their own.

Thanks! I just wasn't sure if they can be replaces and wanted to ask before I drop $1k on a custom glove and blocker.

Congrats 

Thanks, decided to go with brians after the ccm thing. Excited to see how they work out, everything is weave, and then with red skatelace + double t. Getting them through tgc-rance as we couldn't find any retailers in Europe, and the company i work for can help with the shipping so it will be cheap enough to ship :-)

Does anyone have an estimate as to what the up-charge would be to have the G-netik 3 graphic on an optik pad?

I believe it's $75 for pads and $75 for gloves. It might be alittle more now but just gives you an idea

Check with a @TGC-Rance - They do a lot of customs and sometimes get customer graphics for less than others

This set looks really sharp.  I just posted pics of my set I received just this weekend!

Here is my video on my first impressions of my new Brian's Optik gear that I finally received last week. This review is prior to taking them on the ice.  

1. Blocker - solid blocker and huge improvement from my Bauer S170 with respect to finger protection.  Weight is exactly the same so very light.

2. Glove - I've been in love with this glove ever since I tried it on.  It is heavier than my Bauer S170 but all other aspects exceed expectations so far. Really like the double-T and it's actually more broken in than my Bauer which I've had for 10 months!  The Boa system is fantastic as I can get the exact custom fit with just a twist. The glove also opens fully up to ensure proper air circulation for drying.

3. Pads - can't wait to slide on these things.  The knee stack, sliding, and stiffness will be an improvement.  I also think that that seal on the ice will be improved especially for 5-hole shots.  Regardless of how I play in them they look awesome.

4. Knee pads - undecided.  Will test the knee pads in the coming weeks.
