    New leg pads

    I like all the leather straps on my pads. 5 in all and 2 velcro. There's probably about 2 leather ones that i don't think really do anything but they look cool. The straps are brand new and stiff but once they get worked in I'll be able to buckle them with 1 hand and blind folded.

  5. Thanks for the tips guys... I'm happy to report i got it out! I'm lucky that the caliper bolt hole is an open hole. You can see the bolt from both sides of the caliper. I first drilled from the top but tried from the bottom and that's when it backed right out. Saved some money and didn't need to get into bleeding the line. Took 4 shops to finally find the bolts. Guess i could've gone to home depot but don't know if the grade of bolts they sell are good for autos. I didn't use the torque wrench putting them back in just got them good n tight.

    Seattle NHL colors

    Oh boy. The latest concept has just surfaced....... the Seattle Sea Cows! Very intimidating logo. I really see the marketing possibilities with this one!😂😂

  8. Hey guys, Im interested in giving these a try. The P31 curve is a mid curve right? Didnt they used to offer a heel/twist curve as well. Ive been in a Belfour mid curve for years and want to stick to something similar. Just want to confirm the curve. I know there are pics but doesnt cant always tell. Thanks
  9. If you're sticking with the 75 degree break on the G4, then the removable liner isn't super necessary. Unless you're real set on being able to wash the internals of course.

    Re-shaping glove break?

    Leaning heavily towards a G4. I really liked the feel, and managed to get my hands on the blocker as well for some stick handling. Felt super light and natural in my hand. I've read that the GT2 improves upon that feel, but my only gripe is no interchangeable liner. Although, if it ain't broke... Anyhow, Warrior is really winning me over these days.
  11. Nice. What are you switching to?

    Re-shaping glove break?

    Yep... figured this is what I'd get. I can't see any conceivable way either, but held out hope lol. Thanks anyways for chiming in. I've been in the game long enough that I can make anything work (this mitt has been in use since before Christmas), but I'll most definitely be switching at the first opportunity.

    New leg pads

    I had Reebok XLT Premiers and just went to Warrior GT2. The Warriors are a great pad my local hockey shop also cut me a deal on the price
  14. I'd also recommend Blaster penetrating oil. I used it in conjunction with a blowtorch getting rusty bolts out of starters and alternators in a past job. Careful with the flames though 😣 Also, tap the area around the bolt with a hammer, that can sometimes get things moving (just don't use too much force).
  15. ^This unless you have a interchangeable palm like with warrior, there’s really no good way to go about reshaping a glove break into something it’s not.
  16. Also, not NHL but Dylan St. Cyr with a simple but sweet setup for Notre Dame
  17. Well, my mask buying binge continues. I have always wanted a Warwick, and I was able to pick up this 2014 Warwick made for Erik Ersberg of HV71. Additionally, it was painted by Dave Art which wasn't mentioned in the ad. So I am really stoked! Does anyone know what model of Warwick this is? Thanks!
  18. And his normal set will be the Optik 2 graphic
  19. I can't imagine this actually being possible. A glove's break is the way it is because of the way it is designed, cut, and constructed. You could very likely change the way it opens/closes by breaking some of the internal components (by crushing, cracking, twisting, etc), but I would say definitively that that is a very bad idea.

    New leg pads

    Here's a question to consider: Aside from familiarity, what benefit or function do you think the leather calf/knee/boot straps offer you? I think one of the major reasons, perhaps the most important, for the elimination and simplification of strapping was designers and goalies taking a hard look at actual, practical functionality and purpose of straps. Modern, all velcro quick strapping is often marketed and discussed as a way to save you time in the locker room, but really, that's just a benefit, not the reason we don't have multiple leather straps anymore. Anyway, it can be revealing to look at your pads on your legs, analyze how you play and the way the pads work for you, and ask yourself: what straps are actually doing something at all or doing what I need them to do on these pads? You might realize there is quite a bit of excess without function. This is not me pitching modern pads to you. Just encouraging you to look at your gear, yourself, and the reasons why modern pads are the way they are. Cheers man.

    New leg pads

    I would first try on a set of pads if possible, now obviously you can’t try on eflex 3s as that’s an outdated line in case you didn’t want to go to the eflex 4s as you implied, if you get around to trying pads on the eflex4 will pretty much be identical sizing wise to the previous line
