This exactly why I try not to support CCM - Eflex 2 with a new skin!

Did the Koho pads really sell that well at GM? I know that they seem to have a lot being liquidated at our local GM store.

I've wondered that a bunch myself! Is Koho really worth it?

I bet you it isn't - we certainly don't see their products worn by anyone up here in the Montreal area!

Probably more of a beer leaguer niche product - still have yet to see any of the older goalies wearing them when I catch a glimpse of these games!

Europe maybe??

Looks like GM's Koho (in house brand) thing is dead as of now. 

With the release of the new "ccm Revolution" gear.  

Maybe someday the name gets recycled again  kind of how CCM did.

I bet the Revolution pad dies after a couple years. That line is even less interesting without the Koho name

I corrected it for you...

I don´t think it is common brand in Europe. If I don´t count some realy old pieces of KOHO equipment, I can´t remember when I saw another goalie in the KOHO brand. In new "GM models" - no one, you can´t even find this in retail shops here :(.

Eflex 3 are quite a big change from Eflex 2S.

I agree without the Koho name. It's like what was the point.  

I am peeved about the loss of Koho, Jofa, Canadien, D&R, and the like. The product landscape is ubiquitous and boring.

I honestly don't mind it. I think it makes sense to only have 1 brand. Think about how many brands GM had and now they are down to 3. The lines are blurred too much these days and it's too hard to establish unique brand identities for 6 brand names. 

At one point, The Hockey Company had CCM, Koho, Jofa, Titan, Canadian, and Heaton!!! 

With that said... I think CCM for forward gear and Koho for goalies could work well. Try and establish Koho as goalie only focused company like Vaughn. That's also kinda the point of keeping the Lefevre name alive though too. 

Edit: Maybe CCM for Forwards and Lefevre for goalies!!!

Of course I miss the days of the ones you had mentioned as independent brands! But it's just a sign of the times.

CCM has a glue or coating they are putting on the tips of the pro Elastic straps 

I think this is probably wax. I recall OTNY announcing a similar feature for their masks on Facebook.

So what, a lighter isn't good enough for the Pros?

Some of the straps are cotton fibers over the rubber fibers which don't melt like poly fibers.

At least the color zones match across all pieces of gear.  CCM finally got that right.

Too bad it's probably their worst graphic to date

I saw those a few weeks ago. Terrible graphics.

Anyway, can anyone tell me if the length of CCM pants changes when the waist size changes? I seem to recall that with Warrior, the inseam stays the same regardless of what waist size you wear.

I'm in Bauer Supreme pants now, size L, and they're a bit tight and I've been thinking of going to an XL but concerned about the length. I also don't like the floating belly flap thing on the outside and want a pair of pants where the padding is on the INSIDE.

TGN there is no glue - the straps look like that once cut, I recently got my sons mask spruced up at Griffe and the straps needed changing and these where installed.  Supposedly these do not fray nor do they change color product looks great vs the old straps that changed color and ripped on the bottom straps ( see picture just above on the MA Fleury mask )

What is the substance on the tip of the straps? Is it melted elastic? Please share pics of your sons helmet

@TheGoalNet I checked with some friends who pretty much live on the dark web (and in their parent's basements) and the word on the street is that the substance on the tip of the straps is unicorn semen. I like that it doesn't fray, but I'll pass.

      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?
