  1. I wonder how close to same profits bauer/ccm would get if they just mass produced their real pro stuff and bumped the retail price up by ~100$. I read somewhere that bauer pro units cost 700$ for teams.
  2. Yeah, if you live in uusimaa feel free to come and have a look at it! My highest level icetime is with multiple ex liiga/mestis players and some active div 1/2 players and I often felt like I needed more protection against their shots. It's a friendly pick up but sometimes they miss that top corner and fast bodyshots in my 2x pro often hurt. Shame that rinks will be closed for adults for the next 3 weeks..
  3. There is very little information available of this unit so if anyone has questions feel free to ask. It is a bauer pro department nhl spec supreme c/a. Bought it from sidelineswap and I'm so surprised how much thicker and protective this is compared to retail units. Was wearing 2xpro before this and only downgrade is the arm mobility.
  4. Usually upper thighs, I've thought about putting some telttapatja in there but havent had any extra time lately.
  5. Yeah I also like the mobility of 2x c/a and pants. Maybe i'll just buy some zoombang gel pads and sew them in my compression pants.
  6. Anyone else with vapor 2x pants get nasty bruises? I feel like everytime one heals I get a new one. Should I just look for some new pants or what? Never had problems with any other bauer pants I've had past 15 years. I know I should use my hands to catch pucks coming at my thighs/hips, but when I'm screened and I get hit in the pants and it hurts.
  7. I'm 178 with some daddy belly too and got myself 2xpro medium because large had too long arms. It's been great and haven't had a single bruise so far in 7 months of use facing varying level of shooters some ex/current pro skaters included.
  8. I only tape about 15 cm from the tip for my composite sticks, never had anything chip from the heel. My foamcores always did that tho, even with couple layers of tape over it..
  9. Most likely yes, but I'm still amazed how OHL level goalie doesn't wear kneepads, taking pucks to knees hurts like hell too 🤔 Also imo modern pads are more comfortable when wearing kneepads.
  10. More like wearing kneepads should be mandatory. Everyone is talking how they need cut resistant stuff when it does nothing against that kind of high force trauma. Kneepads are hard plastic and they are cutproof if you wear a pair you wont get cut above knee.

    Tucker Tydan injury

    Afaik he didn't wear any kneepads. Seems so weird that kid in OHL doesnt wear a pair.
  12. Someone on ggsu was selling those Bernier pads and said they were just eflex4's without kneerolls.
  13. Wonder if thats just some padskins thrown over or did he get new set just for those small green and white accents..
