As I was beginning to grow impatient.

Hey guys im new here ? here my new Premier 2 setup ? greez from switzerland

Sorry, the strap thing is ridiculous. I'm not saying lighter straps aren't something to aspire to or prefer, but do people really think Hellebuyck or Hotlby are "weighed down" by a few extra stra

Awesome. Great info 

never knew about the graphite. I've done a couple players sticks in the past and only used expoxy

It's funny- my first composite repair was on a disc wheel. That was what the engineers told me to use. 

I used epoxy powder as a reinforcement like using nano-carbon. No-it isn't QUITE nano carbon, but it does add more carbon to the layup. 

It has become somewhat of a go-to repair method for composite sticks.

Remove all tape. Clean the blade with acetone. Buy household epoxy and powdered graphite. Mix a 50/50 mix of epoxy and graphite, spread it into the crack, then wrap the blade with electrical tape. Let it cure for two days. 

Ok I'll give it a try!

Im getting a new set of Eflex 3 stuff and am not sure if I should go with a pro palm on the glove or a game ready palm.

I'll only have about a month to break it in before my first game of the NCAA Div 3 season. I'll realistically only have the set for one season and then probably get a new set.

From your guys experience can pro palm be broken in in a month or is it over kill and would you guys recommend game ready based on my situation?

from the articles I've seen they say with the layer of D30 foam in the palm you don't need the pro palm. Also game ready will be broken in in a couple practices.

You always could have Dennis Dombrowski re-work the glove. Whilst not completely broken in, it will close easily. Just a thought.

If you have an old glove with a pro / practice palm and have any issues with stingers with the new glove, you could use the older model as a practice glove and the new one as a game glove.

I spoke with someone at goalie monkey over the weekend. And they said there will be a new Koho pad. Launching later this summer. Any one else heard anything? 

 

I put it here because it will be a rebranded CCM pad with different graphics

That sounds interesting, I hope they really will be. I asked Jonas Hiller via twitter some time ago about his setup for this year and he told me, that it is still the same model (Revolution 589) only branded CCM. So I tought KOHO brand is done for a while, but it looks there is new hope...

It could easily be that the Koho brand is not licensed in Europe now and is still licensed in North America. That actually happens a LOT.

I think it was because his team had a CCM gear contract.

Or this reason, easily.  I bring up the possibility as brand names are property, and different countries have different laws pertaining to brand names.

I was told he believes it will be based off the EF3. But I had heard before there might be a flat faced Koho pad. 

There are pictures out there, they were flat faced with a graphic similar to the famous k graphic.

      Warning: this mod is NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. It is by NO MEANS a pro-looking mod, but will make your blocker look campaigned. This is a usability mod, NOT for looks. 
      Have you ever bought a blocker and had a hard time closing your hand around your stick? This rabbit has, and knows full and well that it won’t get any better.
      A big portion of blame goes to the poor design of the index finger design, but also to the thumb, as well. If I didn’t like the palm, I probably would have this done by a professional whilst getting it re-palmed. I like the simple Ivory Nash palm this blocker has. When this palm gets tired, I will ask to have the thumb re-worked and fix my handiwork on the index finger protection. Being of TWO ethnicities who pride themselves on saving money, I figure “why not use up this palm first? I can make the finger protection work well enough to grip a stick comfortably and still have redundant index finger protection; it’s not like people are going to zero in on the finger protection and besides- I saved a bit of money!”
      You will need a seam ripper, serrated edge knife, 50 grit sand paper, a curved leather needle, sharp scissors, a clothespin, and sail thread. Upcoming posts will show the steps.

      Ordered pads and a blocker (pictured) a while ago now (still have a little over 3 weeks of waiting on the blocker and a month on pads😔). 
      I currently use a Larceny glove. The plan was to stick with it, but I am considering just buying a new glove to match my set.
      I havent been able to try on either VE8 glove or the SLR 2. 
      Can anyone tell me if any of those would be similar to my Larceny? Hoping to get somewhere to try them on soon.
      Also contemplating just pulling the trigger on a 5500.
      Thanks!

      Isn't it the other way around?  600=baseball closure aka 60 degree,  590=75 degree and 580= roughly 90 degree?
