  1. I have been using a 26.5 Bauer Total One NXG that is more like a 25 after I messed with the paddle since October of 2019 (took me nearly 7 years to get me away from my foam cores!). Previously I used everything up to 28 inches because my stance was much more upright in my earlier days, but has become more compact over time. Last time I checked I was somewhere between 5'10 and 5'11.
  2. @Vogilny#25 What was the ordering process like for an RXS mask? I've had my eye on the Daytona 68 for many years. Any insight would be appreciated!

    Very cool! Let me know where your PA tournament is. I may be able to drop by and watch a game or two if it's on the eastern side of the state.
  4. I transitioned from a Vaughn VE8 to a 2400 russian spec without the integrated throat collar about 6 or so months ago. While it weighs much heavier (6.4 lbs v. 9 lbs), I have noticed a bit more retention of heat, but nothing unreasonable. My experience may be skewed because I was one of those guys that would show up to lacrosse practice in a sweatshirt and pants in 90 degree weather.
  5. Back in my midget 16 (2016-18) days, I was bumped down from the very competitive 16AA team, to the A national to A American team (the equivalent of B, in this case) all in the span of a few weeks (My father wasn't big on the idea of the extra travel of the 16AA team, and made it known). At the time I didn't realize it, but this would actually be beneficial in the long term. While we did lose just about every game that season and I later had a much greater appreciation of defenseman that actually played defense, learned how leadership works, and I earned the prestigious title of 3rd string goal
  6. Here is what mine look like. They came with a second pad that goes in the knee area and another that goes behind the front shield. I have removed those because I found that they moved my leg pad further away from my leg than I would have liked.
  7. I don't want to derail the thread but I've been thinking, is there any chance that we could get the Steve Passmore blocker review up on this website? It is of great historical and cultural significance!
  8. I really like my Brown 2400 "Russian Spec" Have had no mobility issues since properly breaking it in, although I do recall getting one stinger to the forearm in the first few days of use, but that' just goaltending (have not had it happen since). I did have to modify the back plate because it was way too big for someone my waist size and had too much empty space, but since I have done that and replaced the nylon straps with elastic, it has been nice to use. I had a first generation Warrior Ritual pro with the plastic arms (nothing wrong with the arms, just couldn't feel the puck as much a
  9. You're right about that! I remember the first time I saw one. I decided I would have to get one one of these days, there's nothing else like it! They're even more fun to work on because you can take 99% of the car apart with a 8, 10, 12,14, and 20mm socket. 320 WHP at just a hair over 2700lbs is crazy!
  10. Behold, my combustion carriage, the 2008 Toyota Avalon (pictured next to a friend's seven) The Avalon was free, so I'll be driving it until the wheels fall off and when that happens, I will put the wheels back on and continue driving it. Purchased with 110k miles in 2013 and currently has 198,800 something miles and has taken me to nearly every single game and practice. I can even fit my nearly 6 foot long alpine snowboard in the back, it's pretty neat.
  11. Historically, I have replaced pants (bauer elite, 11k pro return, hpg 12a, and hpg 14a) and chest protectors(warrior senior and pro g1, vaughn ve8) every 3 years/ or whenever they stop working, but now that I have a brown, it may be a lot longer. My 12a's were falling apart so I bought the 14a's to hold me over until I purchase some vaughn pants. Same with masks, but now that I've got a hold of a bauer/itech 961SE stars and stripes, I'll probably be using that for a very long time (one of these days, I'm going to save up and buy an RXS Daytona 68) My leg pads are usually done after f

    I still have them! I can't see myself getting rid of them any time soon, they're my favorite (and first if I recall correctly) piece of equipment. This was the beginning of my velocity four obsession all the way back in 2013! I think I had just starting using toe buckles when this picture was taken, haha

    We ran 2 teams, one junior varsity and varsity. Myself and a few other player played on both teams. I managed to play 18 out of the 32 total games we had played that season.

    Found my team picture from my high school days! I was 14 in this photo. As you can see, I was still wearing DoubleG's old V4's that the factory messed up the specs on.
  15. I couldn't believe that they weighed what they did, but I think part of the reason my 2 newest pairs weighed more was because I had the 7800 V5 knee block and sliding surface, so that was likely what added the weight. I'm also quite certain that part of the reason they weighted less was because I did a fair bit of modification to them when I was still using them, so while they were stock when I got them, I had removed parts of the leg channel and knee lock by the time I was done with them. I also recall hearing many years ago, probably in 2014, that the V4 was lighter than the V5, for whatever
