  1. Past hour
  2. That's for the A team. This is the B team ride:
  3. Today
  4. Axis and EF5 both don’t have sport gold in regular jenpro or weave, only speedskin. EF4 was the last ccm line of gear to have sport gold weave sadly.
  5. Awesome, thank you for doing that. Much appreciated. Overall length should be similar plus the Pro Laces have the long velcro tabs so I think it should be fine.
  6. It works with the stock Vaughn toe ties, if the ProLaces are close to the same length it should work.
  7. Probably no worse for my health than drinking 2L of Jager...
  8. Yesterday
  9. Hey @AdamL can you do me a favor? On your pads, can you let me know if it is possible to connect your toe ties and then loop them over that bottom piece with jenpro edge so that it would stay put when walking and carry the pads? On my VE8 pads I just tuck the velcro tabs of my Pro Laces into the boot strap housing so the toe ties don't dangle when I am carrying my pads . On my V9 pads though I ordered them with no boot strap so I assume the housing won't be there and I am wondering about how I can get the toe ties to stay put somewhere and not dangle. The piece I am talking a
  10. And the Kraken have their first player, Luke Henman from the QMJHL I know basically nothing about the Q and have not heard of him, so in that sense it feels Meh for me, but it's a huge step forward and an exciting milestone. https://www.nhl.com/kraken/news/kraken-agree-to-terms-with-luke-henman/c-324622296 And new photos from the main arena, the concrete slab is poured
  11. There is a far larger difference in feel of pads between individual brands than the difference between breaks that you're worried about. I definitely don't want to stifle you for you to explore other gear options (it's half the fun), but I do think you're making a mountain out of a molehill in regards to the double break issue. My double break V4's are still one of my favourite pads I've used and I never felt like they held me back.

    For sure, I know. Stiff pads work best for goalies just like you. I find it odd that goalies like you, or Mr. 32 in silver/black, prefer soft flexible pads. Ultimately it's about feel and comfort so I 'm not saying you should or shouldn't wear this or that, but on paper or just abstractly, it's odd. Being made of rubberbands means you are capable of making your gear do whatever you want and if we are talking about pads meeting in the center and closing, goalies like you don't need the pads themselves to do the work. Not the case with less flexible...most....goalies.
  13. It being too soft? I mean, I’m also crazy flexible and could use stiff pads if I wanted to.
  14. Its not even that. I just don’t know if I would like them or not. I feel like thats a lot different than internal doubles and just a single outer

    What turns you off about double external breaks given your preferences and tendencies in pads?
  16. I really wouldn't worry about looking "dusty" when choosing gear that works best for you. Especially since players can't tell the difference between their asshole and a hole in the ground.
  17. Sheesh! Ruthless in the chat. I have thought about those, but external double breaks... dusty?
  18. No marking or badging on the gear itself, but Speedskin has a different look than regular Jenpro or weave
  19. Are leg pads with Speedskin marked or labeled any different? I have two sets of his leg pads (EF3 and EF4). I do not remember seeing anything on the pads that hinted at speekskin being used. However, I do know he at least tried them at one time or another. If I am not mistaken, the EF3 pads would have been used by him prior to him adopting Speedskins, which he started using in the 18-19 season when the EF4 came out. Not sure if the Retroflex pads had Speedskins or not though.
  20. I've developed a new product in the last 10 mins, wanna try it?

    What size are you? Just buy V9s. You know you want too. Go through Goaliesplus, they sell the squishyest version of all gear. What would Quick do?? He'd buy squishy (V4s) V9s. You should too. @chile57 i respect your persuasion, but I recommend against purchasing anything not seen on TV. Just throwing that out there
  22. Pretty hard to hide the hairline when you're too busy celebrating a constant stream of championships. 😎

    FYI - the UL9's from Simmons are double break. I'd give them a serious look if I were you. I tried some TPS offering (the Lundy pads), some Reeboks, the V5's, Bauer's Reactor 9000's, Battrams and some others I'm forgetting before Simmons. Bought those and haven't looked back.
  24. Vaughn can do a SR-level (not Pro) price point custom pad. Not sure whether its internal or external breaks you can specify though. I don't think a lot of shops do this or aware about this. There might be a slight upcharge from standard retail. Check out the Vaughn 2021 catalog on their website and give your LHS a call.
  25. The veteran move to hide the unfortunate hairline is to tilt the mask up in the team photo. See my pics above. 😎
  26. Saskatchewan of all places has a roadmap towards reopening phases.
  27. I love my soft pads but nobody makes internal double breaks at retail anymore. Bauer doesn’t really do soft, just flexible
