Hey guys. I have been wanting to paint the carbon fiber part of my true skates for a while now. Anyone know how to do it/recommendations for people to do it? I have heard that I can take it to a body shop and have them paint them but I don't know if I want to spend 70$ on a paint job if I could get it somewhere else for much cheaper.
My custom 3 pack of R/V1 Pro+ sticks showed up today and all I can say is WOW! The Holy Smoke clear coat on the paddle and shaft look fantastic and a great alternative to just leaving the paddle black or going with paint if you want to save a few grams but have your stick stand out from the crowd a bit. The balance feels fantastic and the stick is noticeably lighter than my CR/1, just as promised. Mine are 27.5" and weighed in at 667g (almost perfect for ol' @bunnyman666). When picking them up I got to compare them side by side with the new CCM EF4 and Bauer 2S Pro. They're right there with the EF4 for weight and of course are slightly behind the 2S Pro. Next time I work at the LHS I'll try to take in my scale and get some actual side by side numbers. My next ice time is 10 days off, so I'll update with impressions after I get them out on the ice and follow up with a full review some time in May/June.
Edit: Big props to @Kirk3190 and the team at Warrior. The promised turn around time was 6 to 8 weeks and these showed up 4 days before the earliest possible day I had marked on my calendar. If the pads show up similarly early I'll get the rare privilege of breaking them in between sessions of competitive play. Fingers crossed!
