This is what I do as well.  Except I sent my toe bridge to Michel to do it.  Maybe I should invest in a speed stitcher instead haha

Yeah it was one of the easier things I’ve done. We tried using a regular sewing machine but it didn’t want to go through the elastic but the speedy was like a five min job.

Sounds like I'll definitely have to pick one up.

Nothing.  I emailed them last week and got another "this week." Just won't be specific about which week "this week" is

Just wanted to share my method for tying on ProLaces with waxed lace. Instead of lacing through both holes and tying a square knot (which I’m always concerned about coming undone), I start by tying a figure 8 knot on one end, run the lace through and tie another figure 8 in the other end. There is virtually no chance these knots will come undone so it feels very secure

So went the opposite way with my lace, I put the knots in the front and gorilla glued the knot together. I haven't had any issues with it. I did it that way so i would have the smooth side against my skates.

Bought me some new Pro Laces for some pads that will be coming soon to me...

Ordered on Jan. 28, received on Feb. 4.

Pretty quick shipping from Quebec to California.

Hybrid model is coming Wednesday 

I followed up today. Concept is a traditional skate lace for movement of the foot. Bungee for extra rotation and consistency when putting them on

Ahhhh, so simple.  Why don't I ever think of things like that lol.  I would probably do it in the opposite direction though, as Snowman mentioned, to have the knots face the other way.

Haha yeah took me a while before thinking of it too lol...

My concern with doing it the opposite way is I’m not sure how much wear the knots would get in the RVH with that part of the toe bridge up against the post (at least with my poor technique...)

Anyone have issues with the stock prolaces without the lace guard in terms of durability? Im going to my local pure goalie soon and am hoping to pick up a pair of prolaces. I ordered a regular HD toe bar on goaliemonkey to replace my toe straps. @SaveByRichter35 will be happy to hear this i bet lol

Mine had some pretty obvious wear spots starting when I used them with one100 cowlings but as soon as I switched to a cowlingless skate I haven’t noticed any additional wear.

Hybrid Armour release

Wow these are exactly what I was hoping for. Now just can't decide between the 1.5" slack and the 2" versions 🤔

I ordered as well. I've played around with a version of this type of system with rigid lace at the toe bridge and elastic around the skate and liked it. I went with 1.5" as its the "medium" size. Figured its worth a shot.

Let me know how you like the 1.5". Leaning towards the 2" version as I like to go through the middle of my toe bridge (not the off-set setting), but I play super aggressive on my edges.

Big fan of the jenpro "slack" on the Brian's Smart Cord, but not entirely sure how much slack it's designed to mimic. I'm going to wait until @TheGoalNet gets his pair of hybrids and see what he thinks after using both.

I like this idea of incorporating slack into the design. I’ve never tried prolaces. But I gave other similar products a try and didn’t like the feeling without any toe tie slack...... After seeing these I think I’ll give prolaces a shot. But I’m gonna go with the regular version. Here’s my idea. Why not just use lace to connect the prolace toe bridge to the pad toe bridge. That way you could leave whatever amount of slack you want. Easy to play around with more or less slack also.

Love the idea of putting your kids' names on there! I let my kids pick stickers to put on my backplate. I ended up with a pink unicorn...
