Anyone have any clue on what is the purpose of that big hole there? @Kirk3190 maybe?

I saw a smart construction for this toe bridge made with velcro attachment. I don't actually know how it was stuck into that hollow space where the original toe elastic is run through. But when on place it was very much a working sample of a thing. Those should be available for sale soon, atleast I try to talk to the guy who made those that there would be some market available.

My guess would be just to make it easier to get to the back side or to be able to lace something through the holes

Just got my custom G5 pads and decided to make some tabs to attach my elastic toe laces to. I prefer to have the elastic laces attach at at point that is directly in line with the front of my skate as I find I can use less tension in the elastic, which is easier on the body and yet the pad rotates back in place consistently.  I made the same sort of thing for my G3 pads and it worked great for me for 3 years.

I made the tabs from some hard plastic, out of an old knee pad, some  Jenpro and some lacing. I laced the tabs through the 2 front holes and through the larger circular hole and one of the slits. I put a piece of plastic on the inside where the the lacing went through the larger circular hole and the slit to make the attachments more secure.

Here are the pictures of the parts,tab attached to the pad and skate attached to the elastic laces.

I finally got this done for my pads and used them for one skate. I found that the pad didn’t rotate back on my skate as well when I was looking off the ice but didn’t notice at all while I was playing.
