    Stick sizing advice

    Isles - great article matt that’s a similar explanation my sons goalie coach gave us a few years ago. He’s about 6’1’’ and uses a 26 inch BPM 150 Take the time to read the article and experiment as well

    Tydan vs Step steel

    Guys - quick update so I just tried purring OEM of the two sets of Step fatblades that are hard to set in place - what I did as a test was to put soapy water to get them in. Blades when in better than usual, will continue using this system for the near future, i also have been exchanging with Step on what I think the problem is - if anything comes out off this I will advice!

    Padded Shirt Reviews

    Insert - thank you for the feedback it looks like a very nice product, unfortunately I have yet to see one live. Question - sine it seems to have more padding than most other units and the padded sections are HUGE does it impede in any way your mobility?

    Tydan vs Step steel

    So as you can see from above I have been frustrated with 2 of the 3 sets of Step blades I bought my son! In order to further pursue this with the store and Step I went to get the thickness of the blades measured!! Well guess what - the STEP blades ate a smidgen under 3MM and the original Bauer blades are a smidgen over 3MM ????????? I will take another look at this - but my guess is that the ROUGH finish on the 3MM section is what makes the blades tough to get into the holder!

    Help with new CA for my son!

    TGN all the rectangular units on the front and the shoulder wings - sorry for the lack of proper use of nomenclature. FYI I drove to my sons school to allow him to practice with it this afternoon ( just got back) and it fit him extremely well/ he had no issues with his sight lines over his shoulders. All I can say is that he gave me his SZ to take home, I will provide a more detailed summary next week.

    Help with new CA for my son!

    So "sexy" has arrived - will be tried on the ice tomorrow will provide comments as soon as my son gets back to me! Initial comments vs the STOCK unit - the sections that are beefed are the foam blocks and the shoulder floaters whic are alot harder than the stock unit, similar to the Brian's!

    Help with new CA for my son!

    So I just left a large local HS in Montreal and we tried the following: CCM Premier pro size - HUGE mobility - good protection - good CCM E Shield pro size BIG mobility - very good protection - good Warrior G4 Pro size - big mobity - very good protection - very good Vaughn Velocity v8 size - small mobility - very good/awesome protection - meh probably good at best ( I know I can get a beefed up version ) Brians Optik Size - smallish mobility - very good protection - very good ( the quality of the material is WAY out there!!] Brians SZ 3 Size - big similar to the G4 but smaller than the premier mobiloty - very good protection - very good ( the quality of the materials is WAY out there ! ] Bauer 2S Did not like it at all - the shoulder area is poorly protected did not pay attention to it Vaughn Ventus none available in the Montreal region a disappointment as it’s probably a better option vs the Premier - HUGE AND MOBILE I am told I can order and try at home but I think the TGC Beefed up Premier will be ordered tomorrow,

    Guys - for the owners of the CCM Premier any issues regarding the quality of the product. In the forum chest protectors ( I forgot the details ) some guy bought a used CCM Premier Pro that was falling apart and was asking about how to repair it? comments on quality would be appreciated!

    Tydan vs Step steel

    Punisher - it looks like the fit is still snug with the Tydan blades, I will be testing the stock blades vs the Step this weekend in regards to the fit and will advice. FYI I don’t like the Bauer trigger system it leaves too many variables open to interpretation regarding the blade install - still prefer the old screw system I always new that I had installed the replacement blades,

    Tydan vs Step steel

    FYI I recently bought some Bauer’s 2S skates for my son with 3 sets of Step Blades - I can say that for the first time in 5 years I am disappointed with Step. Product - 4MM fat blades Issue from the original purchase 2 sets where EXTREMELY hard to fit into the Bauer holder, they where changed and I picked up the two new sets today and even though they seem to fit I still find them tough to use. I believe Tyden blades had a similar issue - do we know if this is still a problem with them ?
