True goalie, total failure

Assuming I even could find a slot and order some 20.2s this spring I'm on the fence if I'd want to spend that kind of coin on a set of pads just yet. If I were to decide to wait for say the 20.3s or even 20.4s, I wonder if I'd still be able to have pads made in the Lefevre factory, not just outsourced non-pro pads made by True in china somewhere. If we were close to the end of non-pro Canadian made Lefevre pads I would be alot more willing to pay up now before they're gone. 

Does anyone know anything, or heard any rumors about True's intentions to bring the pads to a more mass market? Maybe a two tiered system or something?

At the moment, the plan is to follow the skates

Custom = Made in Canada

Stock Retail = Off Shore

There will be a 12.1 Custom and a 12.1 Stock basically

My guess, it's going to Asia if orders start picking up as they have, but at that price point no thanks.  Hopefully they start adjusting that.

For now, I will stick to discounts I can find from a few for CCMs.

From what I've seen, Asian-made Trues will be priced closer to today's off-the-shelf retail pro product and not priced as high as Canadian-made Trues.

EDIT: Does anyone find it ironic that all the True discussion is happening in a thread where the OP was upset with True?

Which retailer did you order your set through? My order went in on March 28th but I don't think Pure had guaranteed production slots like some places did.

What pads are you in currently and what size?

Just got an email that my True pads just got in way before the estimated date!

I was in some CCM P2 33+1", here are some side-by-side shots for comparison.  They're approximately the same size, I lined up the knee blocks.  Hard to do a 1:1 comparison because the boot angle is different and the 20.2s are much straighter.
