  1. Ah, got it. I haven't seen one up close but that's something I'd say most of the Supreme line feels like for sure. There's a similar feeling with all the OD1N style pads, where they feel very thin and like it's just kind of a board on the front of your leg. It's hard to describe, but the thinner stuff does feel harder to compensate and it starts to really feel normal pretty quickly. I totally get that initial aversion to the stuff though.
  2. The 2S Pros I got done custom right before or as the new program was coming out (late 2018, new goalie program was supposed to start along with players but not necessarily with scanning?) cost just under $1000. My LHS was able to contact Bauer and pull my specs from when Rod at TGC fit me for 1S skates when they first came out. So no idea if mine were grandfathered into some old pricing model or not.
  3. I've been using the 2S Pro, had an NXG for a bit a while ago too, the 2S is like a space age NXG honestly. Think curve composite making it feel lighter, but still solid. Doesn't wrap around you like a Vaughn or the more "mobile" units, so I can understand when people say they "feel" like it's not protective, but if you already liked the fit of it then I think you'll be good especially for just 2 years. @mr_shifty1982 @ThatCarGuy is it the new elbow floater design you guys are spooked by? The body looks like another NXG iteration, but don't see why the elbows would be less protective.
  4. Nope, no ice around me yet I don't think. I feel like these would saturate pretty fast haha. I do wonder what the goalie equivalent of the full plastic shield Bauer is making for players would be though.
  5. Like $14 or something, bought them a month ago but were on backorder. The homemade alternatives weren't cutting it anymore, all my elastics were too tight and even tried some CRS stretch lace (not a joke) but it's not actually so stretchy in short amounts apparently. The other colour was red white and blue stars that I wasn't so hot on. They're reversible and the black one has camo on the other side, is that more or less cool?
  6. Pulled the trigger and picked up a couple new Bauer masks from the LHS. They fit great and make me feel safer out there. Don't affect my sight lines, ventilation is about as good as can be expected.
  7. Damn, wish a mask fit my head that well off the shelf
  8. Maybe he's just not a sellout! #anarchy #stayoutofmyroom #yourenotmyrealdadRON

    Check out that sweet sweet pad seal those thigh rises will give you
  10. This one probably won't feel "soft" for a while. The body is fairly flexible out of the box, but the rest of it fits more like it's a solid structure built around your arms. That being said, it's the same reason I felt really well protected in it, it's very sturdy. The laced in arms move really well though, so I didn't feel restricted in it. The SLR Pro Carbon I used before was more mobile out of the box but it was a lot softer overall as well.
  11. Never had a problem with itching or lack of protection
  12. I think the price point and durability arguments are hyperbole though. Anyone can have a bad experience with durability of any brand. It just takes a one off set to go south to sour someone. Like someone else mentioned earlier, the durability issues have been put to bed since 2SPro. Using the USD/CAD exchange to say that a custom Bauer set costs over $4k doesn't make sense. Don't buy from the US if you're in Canada, CAD retail is only ever a couple hundred at most more than the USD retail if you buy from a Canadian dealer. The graphic is lacking, but arguing that it's to drive everyone to the custom route is a bit of a stretch. They're not perfect by any means, but there's a middle ground between Perfect All The Time and Shit Quality Greedy Fat Cats

    Vaughn SlrX

    Yup, SLR also looks like the Nissan Murano tail lights. V9 is like a flipped McKenney graphic. Even the VE8 is like that decal they put on the side of those special edition or whatever model of F150. Not saying they definitely did all that, it's just crazy how many similarities you can find
