  1. I would think they would hold up fine. I play ball hockey and roller hockey and I've had my pads for 9 years or so and they've held up fine. They're jenpro but I'd imagine any new material would be just as durable, probably wouldn't sell well if it wasn't. What type of floor do you play on? As long as it's smooth you should be fine. You could also put something on the sliding surface to protect it if you're worried about it. Slide plates or even duct tape would probably work.
  2. My Bauer one75s and I resent that. Oh and my olie ma2000 does too lol
  3. 50 bucks is a steal for that thing! You got me beat I paid $60 for mine. I think it's a pretty solid chesty. I play roller hockey and the only issues I've had with it are some stingers to the arms (mostly bicep and inner elbow area), but that's a pretty typical complaint with Vaughn. The rest of the unit has been perfectly protective and it's super mobile. Only other complaints I have is that the mesh isn't super durable, especially on the arms where it rubs against the body. I also dislike the Velcro adjustments for the wrists and back, but I've done a few hacks to make it work. Let me know if you've got any other questions!
  4. I prefer to size my stick to my butterfly, it might be worth a try to help eliminate pucks going under your arm. This article is extremely detailed and will explain it much better than I can: http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/topic/62566-how-do-i-select-the-right-size-of-goalie-stick-paddle-height/
  5. So I cut my second stick over the weekend. This is an nxg dressed as a 1s. The paddle is too tall for me so I wanted to take about 2.5" off. Here are the cuts I made Unfortunately there's a hole in my stick now lol. The stick is hollow all the way until the R in Bauer for anyone who's curious and this is the top of the paddle for reference. I'm not really too worried about it since my blocker will be over this part anyways. I applied some 2 part epoxy over the exposed foam and fibres. I thought about covering the hole but didn't bother as I don't think it will matter much. Here's the finished handle with grip tape.

    work outs

    Jeez 8-10 reps! Might want to try powerlifting those. I'd suggest 1-3 reps. Wouldn't want to tire yourself out before the game...
  7. Here are my picks for under $500, both are pro pads and more flexible models, which should help moving from older pads. https://sidelineswap.com/gear/hockey/goalie-leg-pads/613157-vaughn-velocity-v7-xr-xf-goalie-leg-pads-senior-34-2 https://sidelineswap.com/gear/hockey/goalie-leg-pads/625606-ccm-extreme-flex-ii-goalie-leg-pads-senior Good luck and have fun with whatever you choose 👍
  8. Good point on the sanding. I did sand it just forgot to mention it Sounds good. I'll have to take a look around my garage I'm sure I've got something laying around
  9. No shaving cream or razor required! I've seen this topic come up a few times so I figured I'd do a small write up. I cut a custom grip into a Bauer 1s (with a cracked paddle). I basically did this as a practice run so I didn't do the prettiest job. I used a jigsaw with a metal cutting blade, however I'm sure there are other and likely better options out there. I marked the paddle with a sharpie in the approximate pattern that I wanted Then I clamped the stick to a table and made the cuts. Hardest part was getting the saw to bite initially but it was a pretty easy process. Obviously wear safety glasses while cutting. Inside the paddle is a black foam it's fairly soft you can easily gouge it with your fingernail. You can see the darker black composite that surrounds the foam. I would recommend sealing the cut and then taping up the handle to keep any moisture out of the internals of the stick. I'm not really sure what to use to seal the cut, maybe some composite/fibreglass patch, epoxy, jb weld, even superglue? Anyways, that's about as far as I've gotten. The stick still seems solid or at least as good as it was before. It withstood me flexing it on both sides
  10. No problem! I was half tempted to buy them for myself but my one75s should be good for another year or two
  11. I don't have any issues with them. They're a pretty square flat faced butterfly pad so they work well for that style. They're also fairly stiff as well
  12. There's a really nice set of one95s on the classifieds here for cheap too I may be a bit biased as I still use one75s lol
  13. Nice pickup! I used to have a 95, it's now my dads. I currently have a 95 4Runner both 5 speeds with the 3.slow
  14. High: easier to blocker your opponents in the teeth

    Online retailers

    I'd second the hockey shop. I also use sportchek for some smaller stuff, they don't have the best selection but do have pretty good sales. I like Craigslist for any larger items there are usually some unreal deals if you're patient and look often
