  1. 100% true, just want to avoid that. I'll see about getting shorter boot straps and trying them first before I remove them. Does anyone have the gel? Here is what it looks like inside my knee. Doesn't look like gel, just foam.
  2. Thanks for the well wishes Colander...no blood clots IP, that's some serious stuff. I've strained an MCL and it was pretty uncomfortable, I can't imagine a complete tear. One thing just looking at the pads, I wish that inside attachment for the boot strap was removable. I'm a little concerned that if I don't use the boot strap the buckle might interfere with that inside edge.
  3. My wife likes to joke she pushed me down the stairs, but I went out to throw some salt down after my game at about 10 at night so the kids wouldn't slip on it the next morning going to school. The ice didn't want any part of that, so it took me down. Shattered fibula and dislocated ankle. I'm just about 4 months into recovery and still can't get the swelling down. Was hoping to be playing already, now I'm hoping for September. The only good thing was it was literally both of my girls last weekend of hockey, and I goalie coach them both, so we weren't struggling to get them to their ice times.
  4. I tried that with my V3 but I didn't like the results- felt like I lost some mobility, like it was binding somehow. I'm going to take them in and get them made to be laced-in like TGN did on his V6.
  5. Also found a couple of old sticks. I bought the Titan right from the factory when my team went to Finland for a tournament in 1986. Took a tour of the factory, was very cool. The CCM was my dad's from the 60's or 70's. It was bought at Tuxedo Sports here in Calgary. The sides of the paddle are held on by nails. And you can see on the back of the blade where toes of the skates were used to kick the puck to deflect it to the corners. I'd thought about refurbing it, but I like the original condition.
  6. Finally took a picture of all my gear- forgot the Brown 2400 knee pads though. Vaughn V7 CA, need to shorten the arms. Vaughn pants, Brown suspenders. Hackva mask with a cheater cage and Maltese gel. Thinking I might get in the long queue and get a full kevlar Protechsport. Graf 9035 skates, Maltese throat guard, and I think it is a Pro-Tec-Tion jock that is older than many here. It works...have 2 girls, who also turned into goalies! My first carbon stick- got 2 CR1's for half price. Recently got the Passau kit but haven't had a chance to try it out- see the Passau thread for reasons why and more pictures.
  7. Here's my DR Quantums I recently let go- wore them for 13 years. Loved the cordura parts on the pads, and even considered it when I ordered my Passau's.
  8. Here's my new gear...great quality, nice and light. Coming from Vaughn V5 pads and Smith 5000 gl oves that required an exorcism to get the smell out. Glove is 60 degree with single T, standard palm, skate lace. All else pretty stock- this was my first time ordering custom, so kept it simple. Arrived with the Clarino which is nice. The only visual change I would have made would have been to put weave on the sliding surface. The white and red accents are in weave. One question for anyone who got the gel in the knees. I think it was part of my order, but it just looks like black foam in there- does anyone have the gel? What does yours look like? I'll be ditching the toe strap and replacing with my HAL's- it doesn't fit too well through the cowlings on my Graf's. The elastic boot strap seems really long when I tried it in the living room. I've read the same from others, so may need to get a shorter strap like others have done. I might also just remove it like I did on my Vaughns. I haven't got to wear it yet- still working on getting used to my other new pieces of (internal) gear. Happened a couple of weeks before the gear arrived.
  9. I voted Passau- they all look good, so I went with Canadian built and custom options, not to mention price. I have some on order in this colour scheme of black/red/white as well, still probably a couple of weeks out though.
  10. I had the bootstrap so loose, once I moved to HAL/bungee toe lace, I took off the bootstraps and I didn't notice any issues. And I liked the freedom it gave my ankles. This was on my Vaughn V5's. I do have the elastic boot straps coming with my new Passau's, so interested to see how that feels.
  11. Showed up today- looks good! Luckily I don't play this weekend, so I can get it all prepped and start installing.
  12. I'll do green with the chin sling- thanks!
  13. I need to re-pad my Hackva, and I've been thinking about using Maltese for a long time, so count me in.
