  1. Okay, I am glad you understand where I am coming from. I talk with CCM much more than I talk to Vaughn. But I have had similar conversations with both companies. When you are as popular as they, combined 80% of the NHL, it's tough to do anything too crazy. You always need to walk the line of making a better product and not losing your core user in the process. When your goalie market share is small or your not viewed as a goalie brand, Bauer pre-OD1N or Brian's pre-SZ1, it's much easier to try something crazy and outside the box

  4. As a new bauer user the rebounds, stiffness, and sliding are like nothing I’ve ever seen coming from my previous warrior sets

  5. Agreed on the R&D, but I would say it's more tied to player gear. Warrior is the only brand left tied to a shoe company, New Balance. Bauer is part of a group that owns Easton Baseball, Mission Roller Hockey, Cascade Lacrosse, and Maverick Lacrosse. Peak Achievement Athletics is the name of the group. CCM is owned the PE firm Birch Hill True is part of True Temper sports who is in golf shafts (True Temper, Project X, and Graffaloy), True Baseball, and True Lacrosse. Brands that make player sticks and skates have the largest revenues. They also have more testing equipmen

  6. Ultra Sonic - Yes, the softer boot, knee block, and strapping make it feel like a new pad. Quite frankly, I don't think US feels like anything I have tested before. With that said, the next closest would be 1S/2S. So it's new, but it's Bauer Supreme. That's why I used 1S users will jump into it easily, but will appreciate how much it's changed Yes, Vaughn developed and commercialized the Professor strap... and every brand, but Warrior 😉, has copied them! That was a great a development and I love it on all my pads. If I want to get knit picky... that didn't come from R&D. That was comm

  7. @breaklouis35 BC Canada here. We have an average daily infection rate of 100 people per day. Or 237 per 100,000 people. The provinces hit the worst are Quebec and Ontario and they're at 1,102 and 462 respectively per 100,00 people. To put that in perspective, our worst areas are lower than the lowest state of Pennsylvania which is 1,425 per 100,000 people. You guys suck at this. My two leagues I play in have slightly different rules on the ice, but the before and after is the same: - Masks on when waiting outside and when walking inside - dressings rooms only available 15

  8. Updated view of the stall Initial impressions after one ice time. These things are awesome. So much better suited to my style of play than the G4’s were. I feel like I might have to get different knee pads though since the top of the calf wrap sometimes gets caught on the bottom of my knee pad. The seal is perfect and the rebounds are like nothing I’ve ever used before. I can’t wait for the gloves to arrive.
