    Well, regardless of Bauer's lack of logic in their approach, I appreciate the clarification and diligence on your part.

    Bauer Scan Data

    I figure I'm not understanding why Bauer would have such drastically different fit profiles between goal skates and player skates. Kinda infuriating, actually.

    Interesting, but could you possibly unpack this a bit more?

    Cordura. A proper Vaughn Legacy had Cordura on all the non-ice-contact surfaces. Contact surfaces are Jenpro.

    Protechsport Mask Thread

    ^^^ This is every cateye I have ever used. The only issue I have ever had with the cateye is that any bend is noticeable to me while wearing them - quite infuriating. Having used and currently using cheater cage, this is not so, and I know it is bent in three places. Regardless - and given time and shot placement - think they're all bound for this fate. While the powder coating is cracked, I doubt any welds are broken. I have tested this by taking the cage off, taking the clips off, and tapping on the cage in different spots with the handle of a screwdriver. You're attempting to listen for any small rattle or dull sounds. This is A test, not THE test. I've always gone the dum dum route and pounded out the dent from the inside. Usually gets the desired effect.

    34+1?!? Martin Jones is listed at 6'4". Is this for real? I'm 5'11", ATK 17.75" and wear a 34+2.

    Shaving composite goal stick paddle

    I would recommend a two-part epoxy - strong, self-leveling, easy to use, water-resistant, quick drying.

    I see no need for the middle calf strap that couldn't be addressed with a slight modification of the calf wrap. I would love to know the thought process here.

    What car do you use to haul your gear to games?

    His name is Big Bear. 1986 Toyota Pickup. This was the era when Toyota didn't apply a model name to their pickup line. Simply 'Pickup' - not Hilux, not Tacoma. Currently has 188k miles. 2WD, 4 speed, carbureted, no power steering, no air conditioning, no real maintenance required. The only safety feature is that it's red in a sea of grey and black vehicles. Throw gear in the back and motorvate.
