  1. I’m with you. I wouldn’t say no one has pulled it off, but retro is retro and looks best as a retro
  2. @Jonathon v @Max27 I mean that GNetik used to have a more narrow toe and now the stock is 84. Brian’s seems to be moving away from the 78 and 80
  3. Unfortunately not. +1 single T is the 🐐 Although, I normally steer away from a double T, I’d definitely consider a double T here because of the depth limitation Out of the box closure is pretty close to GNetik IV, really good that way @Aquilzz Did an hour with 1 shooter. Was gased and dripping sweat post skate. Glove wasn’t overly wet
  4. @BadAngle41 - Glove felt more 580 than 590 to me. Fingers really overlap to seal it.
  5. My understanding of the situation; Bauer is the big guy in hockey and they are sensitive to copying smaller companies. They want their IP respected, so they respect others ( This is why they don't have the extended knee block with the landing pad as I've head). As a result, they worked out a deal to license the design instead of just copying it.
  6. Actually thought these were the low point of the pads during my skate today... Either the bungee sucks compared to Pro Laces or it's way too long. I took it in once and will do it again before my next skate.
  7. I wonder what Jony Ives goalie gear would look like...
  8. Correct. More stitches = no D30 Many pros stick with more classic options
  9. 1. Stock pads, didn’t get the 2S thigh rise 2. I believe that’s only option. Untie the Hal elastic and you can tie in whatever you want. This is the same as the Brian’s GNetik IV 3. I hate that strap 😂. That’s just too nerdy for me. Tie the skate lace through the loop and couldn’t be easier 4. Yup
  10. Mexico has many of the cost benefits of Asia, but you are covered by NAFTA, there's minimal shipping costs, and you don't have 8 weeks of lead time to due to ocean freight. That is the perk of made in Mexico. Also, if it is the old Easton factory or Easton our source partner, there is probably probably great skill and tribal knowledge already inherit in the employees there. Warrior's marketing promotes "Made in North America" and I am guessing they believe this is better to consumers than made in china or Thailand.
  11. 1. don't have them side by side... sorry! but it feels great. 2. I'll get some pics up later. 3. 10 3/4" 4. Will use the blocker today and report back
  12. 2. The biggest perk of getting some of the demo gear is that I get it early access. The downside is that the proper customizer and order forms don't always exist yet or are not finalized. Unfortunately, the white bottom binding was a detail that got lost in an email thread or a crude MS Paint customizer. If you order these with the proper customizer on Bauer's website, there should be no concerns. In my case... C'est la vie! 3. No option 4. See that nasty blood blister on my index finger?!?! Slammed a door on my finger the other day at like 2am
  13. @MTH - I believe the Easton factory was in Mexico. Warrior advertises made in Mexico sticks. I'd be shocked if there is not a connection there.
  14. Thanks for sharing the info! Appreciate this and please keep us updated
  15. I agree with this in theory, but I think the 80 deg taper toe taper was phased out at retail for a reason. We’re splitting hairs here for sure... but I don’t think the 80 deg taper and and unsewn in knee block are helping. It’s a little of pieces that could negatively effect. I think that is not a great combo. with that said, 100% agree that working on your technique is what you should be doing. I’d be shocked if that is really going to consistently allow pucks going in on you.

    There’s some subtle differences. Lefevre factory puts bolts on the toe bridge as standard, speekskin is limited to white, the nylon quick motion calf strap doesn’t have trim, etc etc the textured graphic is currently for retail only

    Yes, pretty sure this is what it is

    So mad I didn’t order my set using the graphic like this 🤬
  19. Doubt it. Michel from Pro Laces is a friend of the Lefebvre family. I don’t know this for a fact, but I’d expect Michel approached Pat about working together. Pro Laces are only for pro clients via the Montréal factory. The standard EF4 laces are just CCM’s version of bungee laces.
  20. GNetik 3 is a pretty soft pad with torsional flex. That’s one of the reasons this is happening. From memory, the GNetik 3s don’t have any lace connecting the knee block to the pad. That allows some additional movement in the pad that is not ideal. From memory, you buy your gear at Jerry’s? Maybe they can mod them and lace them in or hit up Great Saves? That could help with the seal and reduce some of the flex, but that just might be the pads and your butterfly When I changed the knee sticks on my 2nd Optik from soft to Hard, that was more about a snap then the thigh rise poking up How are you attaching your Pro Laces? Hopefully not with the screws. If your are using a lace to connect the the pro Laces to your bridge, loosen the lace a bit. That will give you a touch of slack, which might help
