  1. With the AS1 going on sale everywhere, was thinking of pulling the trigger on a set. But first, some questions for the experts, or at least for the guys that may have the same size skates. Does CCM follow the Bauer method, where a 9 and 9.5 skate would have a 9 cowling, but a 9.5EE would have a 10? I’m pretty sure I’m a 9 in the current sizing, but if I were to go with 8.5EE, would it have a 9 cowling? Are the size charts accurate? I’m pretty sure my foot length is 277mm, which is 9, but an 8.5 is only listed only 4mm shorter. Is that enough of a difference to matter? thanks in
  2. Been out of the loop around here, but back playing 3x per week after having both hips replaced. Had the right hip replaced in October 2018 and the left one done January 2019. Started skating (ten minutes) around St Patrick's Day and playing half a pickup around the beginning of June. Played seven times in the last two weeks (just got back from the rink), and I feel the best I have in five years. I turned 57 in June Find an ortho you trust, and find a surgeon you trust more. I got a lot of runaround from my original ortho, who didn't do anything beyond telling me to "take an extra aleve" -
  3. It looks like a palm meant for a new glove, but pasted onto an old glove
  4. Ask him, and send pictures of what you mean - I'm sure he will do it. For those who have issues with the black foam, ask for the cream colored foam (hint - it's rubatex)

    Cage Screws

    https://www.mcmaster.com/#91770A191 https://www.mcmaster.com/#90860A100 That is what I use The screws are available in other lengths, but the thread (8-32) matches standard sized helmet screws
  6. Sherbrooke and SherWood were different brands Based on the labels, and the fiberglass tape on the blade/paddle I'd guess it was a late 60's to very early 70's model
  7. All of those features were exactly what made it ahead of its time It was the first pad to have a solid single foam core, which is now common (for Brian's at least, Vaughn is now getting into it, CCM continues to layer foam sheets) Some of what made it ahead of its time were also why it was less popular. The execution of the landing gear was the problem, not it's existence. If the knee landing was thicker and the calf landing was flat instead of having that odd leg channel of its own, which put the ankle and knee at the same height which put stress on both and made it extremely uncomf
  8. It was 100% designed for hockey goalies After HECC certification became the norm, it was listed in the Cooper catalog as a broomball cage so they could continue to sell it without the liability issues.
  9. I believe he also designed the HM30 cage (and HM40 for forwards), which is still the basis for all cateye cages today
  10. Yes, I asked for the specific shell. I did not ask for specific placement of the vent holes, but if I was getting any other shell with triangle holes, I would specify. Short chin was also a specific request, three inches
  11. Shawn is a guy who uses the superior grade materials in his own offerings. He's been beating the OTNY drum lately for the same reason. All I'm saying is that I'd take high quality fiberglass over cheap kevlar all day every day And at 1/3 the price? There is no downside and FWIW, the wait time as of three weeks ago was 12-14
  12. But it's not close. Fiberglass doesn't necessarily equal fiberglass The epoxy resin used by Protechsport is superior to what others use in their "top of the line" masks. I'd also wager that the fiberglass cloth is a higher quality than what is put in a mass produced product The Bauer 961 is 99% a fiberglass mask made with polyester resin. That one sheet of aramid doesn't make it a better mask. At this point I'd bet almost anyone making a 961 clone makes it as well or better than Bauer does.
  13. The NME padding doesn't fit in the Bauer 961, so no reason it should fit anything else, either.
  14. OK, I'll bite Why? He can put either the padding of your choice, or leave it unpadded If you have a 960/961 padding kit, he could install it, and match the holes. I know he has done the CCM hole pattern for people on other masks, so hole location isn't an issue.
