  6. IMO - close, but two items (which, yes I have stated before): 1. Thicker or possibly dual density foam, in the sweat band 2. Chin cup with more resilient straps Your mask is then mated to your head via two resilient mounting points. I never understood the ides of having the inside of the mask covered with semi-stiff foam - all that does is transfer all the shock directly to your head, whereas a resilient support allows for deceleration. I already did the thicker sweatband bit (about 2x as thick as the original) -really made a difference IMO

  7. Any kind of material that makes pucks more absorbent upon impact with our masks would mean players aren't able to accelerate the puck off of one timers or slapshots the way they currently are, and it would massively change the way pucks handle on a stick. There's also cost to consider, and adoption at other levels of hockey; a puck which you can't shoot as hard, handles very differently, and is more expensive to manufacture, won't be adopted at lower levels. I don't see it going anywhere.

  8. When I first got my V2s, the knee "blocks" (because the way they were attached were very sloppy, not like current blocks at all) would wave in the breeze. Especially when I first started it was a real struggle not to have them catch on each other without having a real bow-legged stance especially when skating backwards, so yeah I could see it being a possibility. Having said that, today's blocks are every rigidly attached t the side of the pad, so I don't know if that could be an issue

  9. your thread motivated me to return to my forgotten project a year ago, the photo of which I showed above and transfer the concept of an integrated knee block to real Brian's Opt1k pad if anyone is interested in this, I will make a detailed report upon completion of the work

  11. Not sure if I’m allowed to show this yet. The only pads I had access to were intermediate 32s but they felt incredible. Totally different pad than EF4. Much stiffer thigh, better seal, very odd twist when they do flex creating an even better seal. Most importantly super comfortable.

  12. My favorite out of the handful I have used is probably the Brown 553, the same style that Hasek wore. Super nice without all the plates and things that are on the current models. I am in an Optik 2 right now and loving it. In time, this could be better than the Brown. I feel like it really works for me.

  13. https://www.facebook.com/Guardian-angel-cages-274800526748916/ I have his open-mouth cat-eye cage design and it has been excellent so far. The cage bars are slightly thicker than on a stock cage, so it is a little heavier, but I've taken several shots off it with no denting or bending yet. It is also made to the measurements you take of your existing cage (various widths, depth of the top/bottom curve, etc.), so you know it will fit.

  15. Hey @RichMan - no disrespect to you - didn't mean it to come out that way if it did. I just personally have an issue with people floating conceptual designs with no real meat. If there was some testing done to back this idea up, then fine. I've seen many conceptual designs that end up nothing like the original because the real work is getting it to do what it needs to. Until you have a functioning concept, it is , in this case, just someone drawing goalie masks. Someone once said to me, before you buy into anything you should first always para-phrase the line from "Jerry McGuire": "Show me the numbers/stats"

  17. Marc Denis even mentioned possibly his knee or groin again but could not pin point exactly if and when that could of been the case. At quick glance of that pic, Simmons 993/994 in weave came straight to mind.

  19. Don't worry, the Eco wore through from the inside because it slightly denser foam, which would create a hot wear point on the outside when machine washed...and I believe the skin is slightly different Passau was making everything for Maltese the last year and a half or so; the skin is identical. The Roughneck and Maltese used the softer version of the gel foam that wouldn't create hot spots from the inside.

  20. The college team I play with had their season cancelled, so I took my expertise to the local men's league. We won in overtime after tying the game with 22 seconds left.
