Warrior G5

Recommended Posts

yeah i found this out, after the fact. not from hm or warrior(who have been silent in all this) but from a friend, in all the gear ive had ive never seen them

the pads were int sized the gloves were all snr sized. 

i found the g5 tighter on my hand than the g4 for sure, easier to close too.

not sure i noticed the angle change

I’m a little sour now, I ordered mine 4/14 and still haven’t received them. Maybe a solid color is quicker to knock out than several colors? I’m guessing two more weeks for mine, they still have to get them In then ship them to me 

Lead times on gear seem to depend on a number of factors.  The retailer you pick sometimes seems to have and effect.   But I can share an example that removes that variable:

A co-worker and I both ordered Axis sets within a week of each other.  He ordered a set in CBJ colors a week before I ordered a set in Graphite Grey, navy and yellow.  His expected arrival date was a week AFTER mine, meaning for whatever reason CCM  thought his set would take 2 weeks longer to build.   Both sets are 34" with single break internal and external, so I'm not sure if it's the colors, the strapping differences or if I just lucked into an earlier production slot for some reason.

Ya that’s what I was thinking on how it works. Maybe it takes the person making the pad longer to do separate colors but pretty quick if the pads are one solid color. Cut everything from one roll and be done with it vs having to cut several  pieces from different colors. 
 

they could of also like you said missed the production batch. Like they make X amount of pads a week and his snick in to that batch.

I ordered all black g5s a little over 5 weeks ago and because of the all black I was told I should get them in around 7-8 weeks, but i dont know if that really true

I think it is really more about the shipping situation than it is about the colors affecting the build time. I got a picture of my pads completed at 7 weeks but it took 5 more weeks for me to get them.

Got my hands on a set of G5’s at Local monkey sports and can’t wait to get mine now. Initial impression for the leg pads seem to similar to G4 pads, but I know they aren’t the same. Liked the bindingless knee stack and felt stiff but not overly 2x4 stiff. I thought they would be stiffer but still pretty good feeling. 
 

glove felt way better on my hand that the G4. Last G4 pro I tried on it was pretty difficult for me to close it right away and left a little gap. The G5 closed and snapped shut right away. The glove also felt like it presented more forward than a normal glove and was natural feeling. 
 

the blocker was the biggest change for me because the board is so big and beefy. Put it on and felt like I had a giant pillow on my wrist but felt nice. 
 

Overall I really liked them and can’t wait to play in mine. The only thing I was wary about is I held the pad on my leg without skates in the size I ordered and the knee stack seemed a little high and I was landing low but again I was just eyeballing where the pad would sit and did nothing scientific to measure where I would land. 
 

I know there is a skate pad in the boot like a riser, does that soften and break down once the pad is broken in?

Anything custom is built either way. It takes as much time to build if you have 2 or 3 colors vs 5 or 6. When your order comes up they build and ship.  At this time, who knows how many ppl work at the factory and how many orders are there.

8 weeks for a custom order? Like the colors, clean and simple looking.

Yeah man I was shocked as was told they would be ready on 15th of June but Warrior would be shipping them to Germany instead of Air so look to have them second week of July then they turned up at Warrior U.K. today so happy days

Do you think that because of being in the UK it was faster to get them because of the closer proximity from the factory to the UK instead of Canada or the US?

Ya didn’t have to fly them/ship them across the ocean. I’m guessing closer you are to the factory the faster you will get them.

Definitely a big fan of using weave to break up the same color.

Actually uploaded the wrong design. This is what I ordered from Cam at THS.

Took a while but not as long as I thought. Ordered them around 3/22 from thehockeyshop.com and Cam helped me a ton with my first custom set. Super happy with how they came out.

Yeah @coopaloop1234 that set inspired me for mine. I really like how it came out. I’ll post a more real life pic today when I get a chance.

So here’s some pics. As promised. I ordered two gloves since that seems to be the part I wear out fastest (duh) and in one of the shots you can see my old stock G4 Pros. Since this was my first time going custom I went classic and got 35+2” vs my previous 35”+1.5” thinking that once they break in and curve I’ll have a bit more 5 hole seal in the butterfly. 
 

I originally had a pick up scheduled for Wednesday but now that’s been delayed to Thursday (COVID scare) so hopefully Thursday or Saturday I’ll actually get to try them fully. I tested the strapping on my synthetic ice but I don’t want to mess them up. Unsure if I’ll use the new calf strap slot since that felt kinda tight and I put my TGN spec pro laces on them since I love them (and they match 😆

Hmm seems the forum double posted my text. Also in the shot you’ll see the glove I’m breaking in vs the untouched one using this method https://www.goaliegearnerd.com/ggn-hacks but I just work the glove in after baking rather than clamping it (it also will be hanging out in the bathroom during showers for a while).

Did you connect your prolaces through the two small holes in the toe or run them some other way? I have a set of TGN spec ties waiting

gorgeous set @benner33

Did they carry over the GT2 thumb angle to the G5?

Thanks! Yeah I think so. I had a GT2 Sr glove first and my G5 feels more like it (I got a 90 degree insert this time) than the G4 Pro I borrowed.
