  1. I would love to see the effort for the sake of content!
  2. These pads also have a professor strap. I think that is a key to minimizing the need of the elastic knee block strap. Unfortunately, I won't be on the ice anytime soon with the pandemic
  3. The knee block itself is mounted directly to the core of the pad. This is a much different design than anyone has seen before. The role of the strap is much different here.
  4. Here’s some comparison pics with the 2X Pro Both pads are a size L
  5. Will be the most remembered set from this season
  6. To my knowledge, Trav's specs are usually soft. He used a GNetik pad with Brian's. He also is on the ice 3-4 times a week minimum. He absolutely destroys his pads. That is one thing you cannot deny. He brutally tests his gear. NHL guys would give up on gear well before he does
  7. I communicated with "Philly Mike" on IG. He knows the owner and is helping him? Apparently, they have safety data and they will release it. This is exactly what the industry needs. Don't say "it's better because it has more surface area". Say "in impact testing, we had good results because of feature X and here is the data". Interestingly enough, there's generally a correlation between weight and safety. The heavier the helmet is, the more impact is can absorb. why? Because generally speaking, density = absorption. Things that are dense are usually heavy. My first question to Philly Mike was about the weight. He said it's not heavier than any other other maks and feels it's very light. Fascinated to see how this plays out. To me? Best case scenario is that Onezee sells / licenses the design to a big player who can couple this with an engineered liner.
  8. I do personally, but that is a matter of preference. If you are comfortable wearing a dangler, you should wear one. More protection is always betters

    Warrior G5

    @TGC-Rance is able to sell these super cheap with a launch special. Give them a call if you are thinking about ordering. Phone: +1 905-773-9273
  10. Crazy. The visual between those two is very deceiving. Appreciate the pics!
  11. I am not calling anything intermediate, I am just curious why those two pads look so differently size wise. Is optical illusion or is the GT2 when they had a sizing issue. Again, this is not meant to knock Warrior. Bauer was under sized at one point too.

    Warrior G5

    Black and white done right
  13. Masks are complicated in this fashion. Generally speaking weight and protection can battle each other here. Sometimes when a lighter material is used, it can compromise protection. Unfortunately, without testing each and every model, I cannot say which masks have the proper combination of lightweight and ample safety. I do believe though, a full kevlar mask is not an ideal construction. Maybe @Don Straus could come on with a more technical response?
  14. I will fully admit, I don't follow Warrior gear as closely as other brands. I primarily look at their sticks and accessories. I did not know that got corrected with G4. Unfortunately, there's only so much bandwidth to "cover" so many brands. That's why this website is so valuable. Great Warrior resource for the fans. However, I think my eyes are correct then? GT/2 would be when the pads were under width and the current pads are 11".
  15. New pads look wider I believe Warrior had less than 11" at one point. Can we get a tape measure on each pad please?
  16. Thanks for getting this up so fast. Shared the link on Insta
  17. Yes, another logical guess too. My opinion is that Lefevre as a stand alone company only making NHL grade gear in Canada it NOT a long term thing. It will either be True by Lefevre, Warrior by Lefevre, etc or they would have to make an off shore line like 20.2
  18. @Jonathon v - If you are comfortable visiting a health care provider right now and your pain lasts for another 2-3 days, I would get it checked out. Good news? If you do have an injury that requires some rehab, you're probably not missing any ice slots!
  19. @Dero - Lefevre is only doing Pro level gear at the moment. The naming structure ties into the year the pad was designed. L87 - Retro pad to honor the 1987 start of Lefevre L4.1 - Based of the Premier lined debuted in 2004 L12.1 - Based of the EFlex line debuted in 2012 L20.1 - Is a new pad debuting in 2020 Why the ".1" after the 4,12, and 20? Because Lefevre could likely partner with another brand, like True, in the future. If that happens there will be senior and junior lines. If that happens, there could be a 12.3 line in the future that would be a senior pad
  20. Good one 3 good suggestions
