The photographer wants some feedback on a new camera angle he’s trying. What do y’all think?

Nice photos!

For your friend though: I'm not a huge fan of the new angle. High-angle shots are typically used to make the subject seem small (in a variety of different ways, context depending). These ones in particular make me feel like I'm sitting in the stands, it makes the play feel a more removed; ice-level shots do a good job of making you feel "in" the moment, and I don't feel that with these.

Kid’s first skate with the 2X Pros after 15 months with the 1S. Initial impressions:

1. Very lively rebounds. We opted with the stiff thigh flex on the 2X Pros — definitely stiffer than the 1S, but the 1S pads may have softened-up a lot over the past 15 months.

2. Given the thin profile of the 2X you’d think the pads would be lighter than the 1S, but in fact they’re more heavy by about 8 oz.

3. Glove is definitely game-ready. About the same as the current condition of the 1S, but the latter required 15 months of use, and a lot of baking, to reach that state.

4. Terrific controlled rebounds off the blocker, but much quieter than the ultra-loud 1S blocker.

Wow, holy crap.

Some quick math....you could have lost 8-3 with that many shots and still had a better save % than the other goalie. 

That's crazy.

A great illustration of how save % doesn't win games but it sure can make a goalie look great.

That's cool you guys get shot stats, it helps put the GAA in perspective.

One of my son subbing in a game for me (probably played better than me 😭 😉 )

We should get a “show off your action VIDEOS” forum going so we get to see these setups in action all in one place

We've had a video forum for a long time.  Several people post to it.

My god :myhead:

This topic reminded me of a similar thought I had recently. For those of us without GoPros (most of us?), what about a thread where you can post your rink name/location and date/time for someone to check out your gear in action on LiveBarn? Maybe LiveBarn even lets you post a direct shortcut link?

You can absolutely start that thread if you'd like to.  My team has recently changed leagues and now play exclusively in a dump of a rink that has Live Barn.

Didn’t get a ton of pictures from the tournament this weekend in Tampa but here they are. We finished with a record of 3-2-0. Not bad for a winless team.

Saw the end of the game against the Phantoms, looked like a pretty wild ending. Your gear looked good!

Nice work with the shutouts and nice work on the showoff pose in that second pic. 

"Look what I can do, this looks natural right?"

I was thinking this too but then I remembered that anything is better than making the goalie “stack the pads”. Hey coach, how about the goalie just stands up like everyone else?!

Haha.  I'm a right knee face down left leg up goalie in photos.

Thank you! The Phantoms were a joke of a team. One of our kids is out with bruised ribs and another with a concussion. I got slashed in the back of the bucket too.
Apologies if anyone likes that team.

Brahmas, LOVE IT!  If that team doesn't use Dwayne Johnson's Brahma Bull for their logo that is such a shame.
