    Heavy Duty Cage Clasp Washers?

    Those moisture cushioning ones look perfect. McMaster- Carr website is hard to figure out though. lol
  2. Hey, Im trying to find some thicker washer to to put between my cage and mask. I noticed the bauer pro stock mask are using a little nicer ones than the ones on the retail masks. See pic Thanks Shawn

    Lightest gear

    Im thinking about redoing all my gear. New chest, Pants, Pads, Gloves and Mask. Keeping my True Skates. I like em. The plan is to go with the lightest top of the line gear i can get. Im currently wearing mostly Vaughn. Looking to shave major weight. Cut my bag weight as much as possible without losing protection. Where do i start? Who makes the lightest gear currently. Thanks

    CCM (CHL) Masks?

    Just wanted some advice on these masks. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-CCM-GF-Pro-return-Sr-goalie-mask-white-senior-large-ice-hockey-goal-helmet/142790143580?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908131621%26meid%3D86bb3707cc674f4eaebca0908ace6d50%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D142790143580%26itm%3D142790143580&_trksid=p2481888.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=pageci%3Ab43f1ba1-73cb-11e8-b757-74dbd1802bdd|parentrq%3A1869b1ef1640a9cc2bc917f8fffe4aae|iid%3A1 This is a listing from EBay. A CHL pro return. Its a CCM pro 5 and he has a pro 4 as well. He says the difference is just in the foams and that they are both large. Foams looked the same on the pictures they had up. I was under the understanding that the 4 and 5 had something to do with sizing on these. Can you confirm the differences for me on a fit 4 or 5? Also, any differences between the retail version of these and the ones the CHL were using. Thanks Shawn
  6. I'm on a bit of a quest to locate one of these. Must be a pro department one made by Lefevre in Canada. Not the retail version. Please contact me if you have one you might considering moving. Not in a huge hurry. I got all summer now. Thanks

    Knee Pads? PAW vs Maltese

    Looking for a new pair of knee pads. My Bauer Supremes are just too bulky and they hurt my knees when i go down on them. I was going to purchase the Maltese ones until i found out they were almost $300 here in Canada with the taxes and shipping. Looking at the PAW ones now at under $200. Looking for low profile and good cushioning. Thought?? Open to suggestions. Thanks.

    Skates CCM Tacks or 50K ribcor?

    Thanks! No budget but kinda would like some to finish the season with. I looked at the True one piece as well but don't really want to wait 6 weeks for them.

    Skates CCM Tacks or 50K ribcor?

    Hey, Ive had enough of my Bauer S190 skates and have decided to go back to traditional ones. Its mostly the 3mm blade that i don't like. I would like to got back to 4mm. Just feel like my balance was much better with the wider blade. Lots of good deals on the 50K/44k Ribcors and the super tacks out there now. Just wondering if someone who has tried them could give me some thoughts on them. Ive heard the tacks have a very stiff boot. I was wearing a pair of Reeboks before the Bauers. Also, Is Step steal really making a 4mm blade for the Vertexx? I haven't seen it online anywhere. That could be an option as well i guess. Merry Christmas. Shawn

    TRUE Goalie Skates - 1 Piece vs. 2 Piece

    Im planning on getting fitted for some True goalie skates in the next week or so. Im just still on the fence about the one piece or two ones. Im currently using Bauer S190 but I'm not a big fan of the 3mm steel. I kinda miss the 4mm step steel i had in my old Reeboks. I was considering the two piece originally with the Step holder but after reading about the higher attack angle i am having second thoughts. I tried a pair or Bauer pro skates a couple years back and i found i was playing on the front of my feet which i didn't really prefer. I would like to have a really good connection to the ice with a 4mm blade. Leaning towards the one piece now. The pros seem to like them best. What would you guys recommend? Thanks Shawn

    Jerry Wright mask?

    Good point. I think i'm gonna pass on it and look for a newer 960. Thanks for all the replies.

    Jerry Wright mask?

    Hi, Im looking at buying a new mask. I was considering buying a Bauer nme 10 (I liked the fit) but have recently found an old Itech Jerry Wright 961 which was used in the OHL. Looks like the goalie it was made for played in 97. So about 20 yrs old. The mask has been refurbished and is in great shape. My question is What are people's thoughts on the old Jerry Wright mask's.? Still considered good compared to the new stuff? Im currently in a Protechsport which I've had for a few years. Just looking to try something new. Would love to hear a few opinions . Thanks

    Vaughn: Offshore vs Pro Carbon

    Thanks. Im leaning toward the Pro carbon ones. With the exchange and the customs/taxes on the Goalie Monkey ones its only a couple hundred difference. I might as just bite the bullet and get some custom ones in all black. Thanks for the help.

    Vaughn: Offshore vs Pro Carbon

    So sounds like they are pretty close. I was mostly worried about the innards and the cordora if it was the same materials or not. Not too concerned about the carbon.....seems like a bit of a gimmick to me.
