  1. I can take some when I get home from work. There really isn't much of a difference in looks, its slightly more narrow. Physically looking at it that is only difference. Its big difference is how the elastic functions. The PC elastic is much more firm than the elastic used in the original Outsider Straps. Does a way better job at keeping the mask more snug to my head.

    Optik 2

    I figured they would do it for an upcharge at the very least.

    Optik 2

    @TheGoalNet do you know if Brian's will build a Gnetik 4 pad with Optik 2 graphics?
  4. Little late to report but I used these for the first time Sunday night. The suspenders worked like suspenders, really nothing to report on that. The attachment points work great. So much nicer than the rubberish plastic clips utilized by the A&R suspenders I've used prior. The TGN straps are a nice addition. I wear my c/a untucked and always run my suspenders over. I usually run them to the inside of the shoulder floaters closer to my neck to help keep them in place. The TGN straps worked perfectly to keep the strap centered over the floater. This was nice because it prevented the floaters from being forced outwards by the strap. All of the floaters and padding stayed perfectly in line the way it is designed to be. The setup felt different from what I am used to doing. I don't really recall what it was the felt different, maybe just the way everything integrated now? Whatever it was, it wasn't anything negative and surely not something that caused me any issues getting used to. Huge thanks to @KovaGoalie for the awesome design of these suspenders and to @TheGoalNet for collaborating with Kova to come up with these TGN straps! The other piece of gear I deputed for the first time Sunday night was something I had mentioned in another thread, which I cannot seem to locate at this time unfortunately. I had mentioned that I love the design of the Outsider Straps but feel the elastics used are subpar when compared to what I was used to wearing. I had said I would love to have the elastics used by Pro's Choice, which are far more superior, mated to the connecting tabs of the Outsider Straps. So I decided to make it happen. I ordered a set of straps from Dom, I ordered some strips of jenpro from another source, and I had everything put together. They came out perfect and they work far better than the originals.

    Chin slings

    I wouldn't say they're movable. It just depends on how much material is used to make up the sling. If you have a bigger sling it will sit you closer to the cage. If you have a smaller sling, like I have, it sits you further back.
  6. Call the retailer you ordered through.

    Chin slings

    It can depending on how the sling is set up. That particular one pictured looks like it is set up closer to the cage than both of my masks.
  8. I'm going to order one regardless of code. I am just not in a rush being that this particular code didn't apply.

    Optik 2

    I didn't think that it was a gaping hole there. More along the lines of small vent holes similar to what the old TPS X-Hale pads had.
  10. Congratulations, Pucker!!! So happy for you. Here's to a great season for you and your team.

    Optik 2

    @TheGoalNet are these "vents" on the face of the Optik pads functional or just for show?
  12. You're all wrong. I spoke to Bernier via IG. Its an updated version of the CCM Blockade he wore as a kid.

    Chin slings

    Sachem. Long time ago though, I was class of 02. Seagoal is pretty much correct. A chin cup is technically more of a "sling" than a ching sling in the actual sense of the word. A chin sling is is more like a cradle. Your chin doesn't actually sit in the sling, its just kind of wrapped in it.
  14. Wait which code did you use? I am talking about the trav code.

    Chin slings

    I played in the same high school league. They don't check for stuff like that. I didn't wear anything back then. No chin cup nor a sling.
  16. Apparently this doesn't work for TGN spec
  17. So I am going to be ordering a set of these to keep on hand in case I ever decide to play some roller hockey again. I played strictly roller up until moving to ice back in 2011. I never used toe ties up until 2009-10ish, I guess, when I got my first set of Vaughn gear. In order use ties without interfering with my front wheel I removed the toe bridge entirely and ran the toe ties through the holes in the pad where the toe bridge was connected. Of course the pictures I posted on the GSBB waaayyyyyy back when are no longer working. Anyways, I tied a few knots in the laces in order to keep them from in place and to prevent them from interfering with the front wheel of my skates. It worked perfectly. I love my stock Pro Laces but they'd never work for inline skates. I am thinking I can probably get these setup similarly to how I ran my toe ties years ago. The 25% off code makes it a no brainer for me as well. edit - or not...its telling me I "cannot use this voucher with these products". I'll hold off on ordering these until this gets straightened out.
  18. No I know you didn't. It just sucks that this stuff happens at all. I turned 36 in August and I have definitely noticed over the past several months that my body has more aches and pains than I've ever had before. Not saying this is going to be in my future as well but it sucks that its anyone's future, or present.
