Custom Gear Wait Times

Recommended Posts

I called Vaughn yesterday to inquire about just a trapper....14-16 weeks...in May.   Weird.

Vaughn is still either way busier compared to their competition or way understaffed relative to their busyness compared to their competition.

Placed an order for a full set of custom CCM yesterday on March 8th.

Dunno what the wait times are, though.

Received EF4 set on 5/29.

Or, 11 weeks and 5 days.

I placed an order for EF4s at the end of last week and was quoted 8-10 weeks.

It’s 16 weeks from Factory Mad, but he is literally a one man shoppe.

Could be a case of both. With the smorgasbord of new production pieces and MIA senior gear, it would not make sense to employ more people for custom orders and I am certain that their already booked stock gear for the major hockey outlets is a contributing factor. 

It is a different landscape. When I first was thinking to be a goalie, the only stock gear in most stores was their display pieces. Even shopping at the official sporting goods supplier of an NHL team, every piece of goalie gear, save for pro returns, was custom made. That was 30 years ago. Now we have a glut of it!

Another set??? 

Always looking for something new lol. This is the first ever custom set and I am quite stoked. First time a set will have every spec I want all in one. Hoping for a long happy time with this set (when it finally arrives). The color I went with should look nice with that Olympia “Cooper” bucket from you too :)

Lol. Just around the house. Still working on dialing in the foam. Was trying to get a new cage and chin set up first too.

Ordered a set or warriors R/GT2 on April 30, got the confirmation date of June 12th.

So a lead time of 6 weeks + shipping

Delays at Warrior due to Volume. Been given an ETA of the week of July 1st.

Currently going on 6 weeks for a pair of True skates. Yes, SKATES in MAY/JUNE. 😧

I'm curious, as I ordered a pair of 1 piece skates at the end of May, what is the production stage of your skates?

Ok thanks. Mine entered production on June 14. They were ordered May 31. I was quoted 3-4 weeks, should be interesting.

Ordered a custom set of G-Netik 4 on March 26 and they are on the way to me. Thanks to the Goalie Crease for the express slot. 5 weeks total with shipping, can’t beat it!  

Wow! I ordered just an optik glove and it took 14 weeks

Could be that the one piece and two piece follow a different manufacturing process? VH is coming out with a new player skate (not sure if goalie too) next month, so they may be backed up making stock skates for HockeyMonkey, etc

Definitely a possibility. I'm assuming that you ordered the 2 piece then. Hopefully you get them sooner than later!

AFAIK its the new holder (quick release), don't believe the skate is changing.

And they came in! Ordered May 9th so pretty much 6 weeks. Kinda bad for the offseason IMO but it's not a huge deal...they're still crazy comfy. At least I got the right colour tongue felt this time

Congrats, they look great! I'm only 3 weeks in, so I have a while to go yet.
