  1. Yup I did the same. The extra stiff core once broken in (had mine since the shutdown started) resulted in exactly what I wanted.
  2. I have G5 Pro pads with ProLaces (TGN spec) and they work fine haven’t had issues. It’s a PIA to thread things through but it works as well as it did with the G4 Pro pads I had before. I haven’t noticed major softening issues but I got mine custom with the extra stiff thigh rise option.
  3. I had those same exact pants. Remove the flap and the inner belt should be fine. IIRC you can easily remove that flap. I always that that flap out of my pants since I tuck my chesties and use suspenders. I’d send photos but I gave mine to a local kid here who needed new pants.
  4. I ordered Halo bungee suspenders a while back and love them. I might just snag a set of these to try them out!
  5. The arms are great no stingers at all but just enough to know you got hit (which I want). Took a while to break in and become flexible but it’s holding up very well and I’m super happy with it.
  6. It’s a 3mm holder with 4mm steel in it by default though goalieparts.com sells Tydan 3mm steel for it if you prefer that.
  7. I love my Optik 2 Pro (custom colors no other mods) and came from a Warrior GT Sr before. The only complaint is it took a while to break in to where it feels as mobile as my GT but I don’t feel any hard gut shots like I started to in my GT. Almost went with a G5 Pro+ but I ordered the optik pants and chest last year before they came out.
  8. I’m going to sell my Graf Pro G skates. I tried to find someone to put a new holder on them but I just can’t get used to them. Going back to new stock True 2 Piece instead.
  9. Yup I’m left handed and use regular gloves so I can shoot the same way I would with a player stick. I fully agree.
  10. I used a foam hot knife. It’s not perfect and I’d love to know better tricks but it worked better than a box cutter for me. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07H28SCC9?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title
  11. So I did my first custom orders this year (Brian’s C/A + Pants and Warrior G5) I didn’t know what could be asked for and wish I did. For example I’ve emailed Brian’s support twice asking if I could get replacement arms with nylon or poly mesh rather than air knit. I thought I picked a color not a material (the C/A is hard to get into even my largest jerseys). For future reference what’s a good way to know what could be asked for?
  12. Can’t add anything but good luck on the new team!
  13. I don’t hate the holders + steel just can’t find them anywhere and they seem to ding up after post work worse than Step steel did.
  14. Ah ok. I might return mine since it really doesn’t seem like something I can easily do. They seem to be about right but the size down would be too small I’m pretty sure.
