  1. So I pay in a 35+ league that each team is comprised of 2 lines. 1st lines are guys that grew up playing; Prep school, NCAA D1,D3, Juniors, some retired professionals( the Leach brothers played a few seasons). 2nd lines are primarily guys that learned to skate after age 30 and the older guys who don't move so well any more but still love the game.Teams do a really good job of line matching during the game and rarely will 2nd liners get abused by 1st line. So every couple of minutes the game changes completely. Most challenging hockey I've ever played.
  2. oh I completely agree. I';ve been playing in my various leagues long enough that everything is primarily friendly or done in a joking fashion. If someone is crowding the crease, they'll get a little tickle with the toe of the stick somewhere near the anus, followed by inappropriate comments that should require time with an harassment councilor. Or maybe a soft breath to the back of an ear. Maybe I should seek professional help
  3. I might freak out a little if the stick is coming down on the back of me leg/hand, perceived intent to injure, vs a stick coming in horizontally, perceived digging for loose puck. But I'm more of a "what the hell is that shit" guy than a get in your face/ throw punches guy
  4. I have the NG elite pant and never had an issue. just can't find a spare/ replacement
  5. Serious question to those that don't want to "soak" their catcher; how long will you have said glove before you replace it?
  6. This in the pant version with the sock tabs , with or without inner thigh padding.
  7. I believe it's the construction of the nylon/cordora that causes the issues, for me. My stitches tend to pull/open the fabric unless I use a denser material as a backing on both the top and bottom of my stitching. But then again, I may just not be very good at executing.
  8. That's in the cordora? I'd probably stitch then glue then throw a nylon tape over the top. I never have much luck stitching cordora.

    Pad Settling

    The foam in the e-flex will not settle in the boot length. Definitely won't settle 2 inches. Break in techniques won't cause modern pads to settle. Breaks will soften, allowing more flex causing pads to fit differently.
  10. Go see a Dr. or a physical therapist. Sounds like a possible injury issue or strength maybe? Can you stand up with your left leg at home? That's probably where I'd start. Practice in the family room until you're comfortable, then put the pads on with sneakers and practice some more, then maybe try it on ice. If it feels like the pad is getting in the way, try strapping it tighter, or looser. If you think it might be a balance thing, practice. balance on 1 foot, bend your knee and see how low you can get, then stand while still on 1 leg, then switch legs. keep practicing until you can touch the floor with the knee you're not balanced on and stand back up. As @seagoalsaid, it could be a flexibility thing, balance strength and flexibility all kinda work together.
  11. What do you mean can't stand up from butterfly? uncomfortable? painful? not strong enough? balance issue? can't find the blade/get your foot under you? I don't understand
  12. unfortunately It won't be available until April. I'll post here once I actually get one.
  13. Love my 4 door wrangler, 200k miles, never an issue, only reason i'm getting rid of it is because of the jeep Gladiator.
  14. Technically most traditional masks are single impact, i.e. one shot, stick, whatever, and the mask needs to be inspected. With glued foams, this requires repadding to check the structural integrity of the interior of the unit. Although not likely to occur, any single impact to the shell could cause interior cracking behind the padding leading to catastrophic failure. Easier to inspect the mask with the "mechanically attached foam". Royal pain in the Ass, not practical by any means but never the less truth. That being said, very good idea to periodically have a mask builder/expert inspect your mask.... once a season or more if you are consistently taking shots of the mask. This holds true for all protective headwear made from plastics or epoxy resins and foams. I understand that nobody in the world abides by this and there is overwhelming evidence to the contrary, but that doesn't make it any less true, it only takes 1 impact to damage the structural integrity of a helmet and you never know which impact it will be that causes it. sorry to be a bummer.
