    Not a fan. Don't like the break. Have a lot of issues with the break angle. Came from a Koho 580 (many moons ago), and wish I could go back to that old glove.

  1. That’s flattering but also messed up. I get that imitation is flattering but create your own damn graphic.
  2. Interested to hear feedback on this as well. I just ordered Optik 2s with this exact spec. Would be getting them this week but for the pandemic response. Based on measurements I’m certainly in the right range but haven’t heard anything from anyone who also has purchased this spec.
  3. I’ve had them for about a year - they’re holding up very well
  4. Apropos of this thread - anyone have any recos on inline skates? Want to at least be able to skate outdoors, but unsure whether to to buy goalie-specific inline skates, or whether I should just buy some standard rollerblades. Thanks in advance for the input.

    Custom Gear Wait Times

    Brian’s is still making PPE for hospitals, etc.
  6. I just saw @Taco's post. GM still has the O2 chestie on clearance while the O1 chestie is essentially full price. I just bought a 2x pro, but I couldn't pass up. Seems like a huge mistake, but that's on GM. Fingers crossed that they honor the deal and ship the chestie.
  7. Anyone have any issues getting their 4mm Step Steel into their Bauer Vertexx Edge holder? I have S27s (size 7 w/ 3mm steel) and bought some 4mm Step Steel. I can't get the new steel to snap into place. I'd run it to my local shop for them to do it, but everyone in CA is closed. Insights appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  8. Using a Bauer 2x pro c/a with warrior x2 pants. I use the internal belt to keep the pants up high, tuck the c/a and tie it down with the laces. I also put the suspenders over my c/a with mrazek straps. On my old C/A pants, I used to keep everything untucked, untied but I got tired of getting whacked along the seam of the pants/chestie. Since switching, I haven't been disappointed.
  9. Anyone tried these on recently? How do they compare size/width wise to other Graf skates w/ cowlings? My local stores don't have any peak speeds in stock and I want to try something on before dropping $600 online for a new set of wheels.
  10. Sorry if I'm late to the party, but did you notice anything with the "cover edge" or whatever it's called (especially with the trapper)??? The change in angles seems intriguing.
  11. What kind of C/A do you use? Have you tried it with the O2 mitts? How's the fit?
  12. What kind of break does your G4 trapper have? What would you consider comparable? Thanks for the input - much appreciated!~
  13. I'm looking to make the leap into custom gear. I'm currently in SLR 1s (32+2) with VE8 mitts (used to have VE8 pads as well, but really disliked them). Looking for input on moving into a new company; I've been looking at Bauer or Brians - particularly because custom options allow for a smaller palm on the mitts. I've read that while Vapor is more of a hybrid pad - it still kicks out some big rebounds (also - I wear a 2x pro c/a, and figure the same ecosystem ensures a better fit). I've tried the strapping on the Vapors and find it very comfortable. I've also heard a lot of good things about the O2 mitts and the max core. Seeking additional input before I throw down $3k on pads. Thanks in advance for all your help.
  14. Like said above - looking for advice, opinions, thoughts on new pants. Currently wearing Vaughn SLR Pro (LG) and I tuck my C/A into my pants (5'8" tall). Good protection, reasonable price, but I've dropped a ton of lbs (55) and I'm down 5 inches around the mid-section and now I feel like I'm swimming in them and they're hindering my movement. I've been looking at/tried on Vaughn SLR2s (Medium) and Warrior X2s (SM). Also looking at some Brians BStar (SM), but looking for thoughts on pant length, experiences, etc before I make the move. Thanks in advance.
