  1. The G5 set is the first time I did custom and it’s sad that you had that experience. Even getting used or SR gear from Warrior hasn’t let me down. I hope that gets resolved for you.
  2. So the red box is the foam in a pocket that my G4 Pro didn’t have. The purple is the Velcro thing that all my Warrior gloves have had. I’m unsure what the red is other than the practice palm. It comes out of the pocket easily so I assume that’s what it is.
  3. I think it also has a foam insert (at least mine does) in a pocket inside. Perhaps that’s the practice palm (my first custom set).

    Love the classic there. Can’t wait for the up close pics!

    I haven’t pulled hard but not enough that I’m worried. Did a few butterfly drops in my skates with them done up and it seems fine. I’d like them both to look like the one where I don’t cross over but I’ll get to that.

    Yeah I tried to get it exact on both but gave up. Here’s what I did for now.

    Thanks! Yeah I think so. I had a GT2 Sr glove first and my G5 feels more like it (I got a 90 degree insert this time) than the G4 Pro I borrowed.
  8. I love mine. My specs might be a bit different (I’ll look it up).

    Hmm seems the forum double posted my text. Also in the shot you’ll see the glove I’m breaking in vs the untouched one using this method https://www.goaliegearnerd.com/ggn-hacks but I just work the glove in after baking rather than clamping it (it also will be hanging out in the bathroom during showers for a while).

    So here’s some pics. As promised. I ordered two gloves since that seems to be the part I wear out fastest (duh) and in one of the shots you can see my old stock G4 Pros. Since this was my first time going custom I went classic and got 35+2” vs my previous 35”+1.5” thinking that once they break in and curve I’ll have a bit more 5 hole seal in the butterfly. I originally had a pick up scheduled for Wednesday but now that’s been delayed to Thursday (COVID scare) so hopefully Thursday or Saturday I’ll actually get to try them fully. I tested the strapping on my synthetic ice but I don’t want to mess them up. Unsure if I’ll use the new calf strap slot since that felt kinda tight and I put my TGN spec pro laces on them since I love them (and they match 😆)
  11. Ordered 3/22 arrived at my door yesterday.
  12. The profile lock never did much for me but perhaps that’s because I got them used.
  13. I had a pair of GT2 SR that held up great but were a bit a bit too short so I traded for a old pair of G4 Pros in white. They still are fine even after two users banging on them. Today I just got a pair of G5 Pros with the extra stiff thigh and I have to say the thigh is super stiff but I haven’t taken them for a test drive yet. My buddy is rocking the GT2s still and they’re like new. I think Warrior does an amazing job on their SR gear. If I didn’t have the ability to just get Pro (always dreamed of a custom set) I’d get SR (or their SR+ this year) for sure.

    Yeah @coopaloop1234 that set inspired me for mine. I really like how it came out. I’ll post a more real life pic today when I get a chance.
