Better look at that toe strapping.  It looks like the velcro closure is at the back of the skate vs the top

That stock graphic is one of the busiest and less visually appealing of anything else on the market right now.  

The 1 piece glove, bindingless blocker and the tweaks to the pads have me interested tho.

I dig it. It takes a lot of cojones to go the ugly for ugly sakes design route.

They look a lot like OPTIKs. Maybe it's the flat face, S-Curve, or graphics, I don't know. Anyways, they look very interesting and I'm sure that with a few custom specs, these could be one heck of a pad. Can't wait to see/get more info on these!

I played around with the customizer.

What's crazy is, all the individual rectangles have their own color zone.

I almost think we should do a group buy for one set of the most bizarre color buildout we can collectively imagine.

Full custom graphics start at $290 CAD up to $450

I was playing around with that as well. It is neat that they offer very specified colour zones, too bad even with some honest trying, I felt like I couldn't get the graphic to work.

Compared that to this atrocity that at least flows well enough together.

If you look at the left pad (on our right), it kind of looks like a bastardized version of the Canadiens logo

Feature-wise, the design and build quality of the pads looks really good.  I would be nervous about ordering a set, as JRZ was never able to do a comfortable enough glove for my taste.

Which brings me to another question I've always had - when they were contracted by Bauer, did Bauer do the designs or did they let JRZ handle everything?

As I play with the customizer I'm able to come up with some really good looking designs.  Yes, the stock graphic CAN be made into a truly ugly pad if you're not careful.  On the other hand, with a bit of work some people are going to come up with absolutely gorgeous pads with this one.

That full custom graphic pricing is up around... Bauer True Design (~$500.) I'll bet it doesn't get backlash though. Funny how that works.

It's also cut and sew instead of printing like Bauer (not sure which one is more expensive), but the base price is very different: JRZ full set is $2150 CAD and Bauer pads alone are $2000 CAD with the full set being $3070 CAD according to Hockey Monkey Canada. Obviously they use different technologies and big companies like Bauer are going to charge more because of all the ancillary stuff (advertising, sponsorships, R&D, warranty, etc.) but the JRZ gear appears to be a very good deal nonetheless.

Has anyone tried this Velcro strapping behind the holder rather than over top of the boot?

I have Pro laces, and loved the idea of having my lil squirts' names showing, but when I tried this in the dressing room, it felt funny. I chickened out and changed it before even stepping out of the room.

Yeah... base price point is very different. I was just poking the bear as Bauer's True Design pricing has bean called ridiculous and outrageous.

I think that was just a personal move by that goalie.  These look like any other bungee toe tie system out there now.  I've been looking into these quite a bit over the last couple days and they appear to be very Optik like in design

to be honest I'm kinda disappointed in the design. looking at the outside of pad, I thought the pad was going to have a more geometric design. The large curl disrupts the flow of the three large blocks going through the pad. tho with a little one100/total one inspiration and using most of the same polylines i made a geometric mock of a design.

Am I the only one that thinks the strapping is similar to the vapors tune fit strapping?
