  1. Curious why the 1X blocker is often considered the best Bauer blocker out there right now. What are the comparisons to the 2X?
  2. Okay, thank you! That makes sense. Was thrown off by the clear tabs on the top of the cage (a new feature from CCM to help with paint chipping), but perhaps these were swapped out from CCM cage and placed on the Sportmask cage.
  3. I am looking at a set of 2X pads and noticed the knee block sliding material looks more like jenpro than the harder, plastic-like block of the 1S and 2S pads. Is it slower when sliding or unnoticeable? Looks like the calf wing on the 2X is the plastic material. Wonder why Bauer would use different materials on the knee and calf? Thanks for any help!
  4. Anyone know where you can get one of these? Never seen CCM cage with large center bar.
  5. Is the ergo spine outlawed in the NHL? Curious why more guys aren't using it. Most of the Bauer sticks are skinned as 2S Pro.
  6. Watching the Isles vs Panthers. Noticed Varlamov wears his dangler high. Almost to the point where it serves no purpose. You'd think he'd want it lower or not wear at all...
  7. I thought this would be a topic many would be interested in, since we often don’t see what pros are wearing under their socks. Guys (like Rittich or Hart) who wear their pads exposed, we know. But what about Mike Smith? Here’s an older pic from his time with Coyotes. Looks like the old grey Reeboks: Here is Crow with what also looks like to be the same style. I think he wears the CCM KP 1.9 with the plastic knee cap: Holtby wears his exposed, but actually cuts out the plastic knee cap (anyone who has worn these knows why):
  8. I wonder why he left the one piece True skate?
  9. A few weeks ago, I was at Pure Hockey and tried on a retail pro CCM Axis catcher. The quality was laughable. Was labeled "game ready" and didn't close. You could tell the break wasn't even really lined up. I use a Lefevre built glove from CCM and the quality is insanely better. The sales associate said it was because you have to put it in the oven first. The retail level pro gear these days is often terrible compared to what it used to be.
  10. Anyone else think it's interesting that guys are testing new gear when they are supposed to be going directly into the playoffs? I would think they would wait until next season/summer to try it out.
  11. I'm interested to see how the 90 degree integrated knee landing holds up from durability standpoint. If it breaks, it seems you are screwed.
  12. Just picked up some pro return CCM Extreme Flex 4 sticks. Currently using the Premier II. I've heard a lot about how much easier it is to shoot the puck/ stick handle with the soft flex paddle on the Eflex 4. Is it really that noticeable? Will also be interesting to see how the durability holds up.
  13. I currently use 590 and have also used 600 break. Would be interesting to see how the 580 affects Turco grip and regular grip when stick handling. I think Price switched from 600 to 590 because he thought it was a better hold on the stick.
  14. I am considering the Bauer S18 pros. Sounds like those don't move a lot and don't require tape.
