  1. I thought Bernier was set to stay in Detroit but I guess they saw a different performance.
  2. It looks like a cosmetic thing, no actual break underneath. It would be bad for them to state the option of no break and then simply cover up the split with jenpro. Guys who like their plywood pads would be pissed.
  3. So you the one that jumped on it. I got the PSH notification but was too late checking it and it was gone. Is it a large or xl?
  4. WHAAAAT??? I didn't hear of this!! Shit A one two, a one two... RIP Biz, hope you keep making music with your mouth wherever you are.
  5. Saw it. Bonesy would have to start in their East Coast affiliate first to see how he can handle himself I'm guessing. As for Kas, he took a career decision for himself and his family. Signed in the SHL. Don't know if it's 1 or 2 seasons.
  6. Any lowwww give-away sales on Warrior GT sr pads somewhere in 35" in the following colours:
  7. So Pekka retires. Will Sarro take the number 1 spot? Will Kasimir come back eventually? Who is left to fill in #2?
  8. Ok, who's working the front door? Didn't anyone card these kids?? @Chenner29 @ser33 I know how demanding just playing the position is, and it's even more apparent when you're playing with a bunch of benders. Seems so much easier when scrimmaging with higher levels. My trail running helps develop my cardio and legs, my bands/TRX help with the whole body maintenance. Eat a sound nutritional program adds a lot to the equation. Enough sleep, little stress (don't give a f%$k attitude, choose your battles) and a positive mental attitude - ALL of it has and continues to contribute to my keeping active, competitive and playing well on to my 60th birthday (8 years to go) at which point I will hang them up and put my focus on other passions. Lets face it, we're like a bunch of old Chevys or Mopars that need constant maintenance to keep up with the young Subarus and Audis of the game
  9. I did notice in John's order form that you can choose either as an option as you go through the list of specs for all his units.
  10. That is very similar to what Brown has always done to his chest pads, the added foam bar to cover the gap. And the newer model
  11. I don't have the health issues you are dealing with but I do have sore knees/hips sometimes, a back that locks up now and then, but I see Father Time watching from the bleachers and I too am getting behind in my performances and my usual competitive self. Just remember to fight 'til the end...t'is but a flesh wound

    Just to add to the my post, I just came back from PHL and tried on some 35" G4 Pros and here again, my knee lands about 2" from the top of the block edge. Is there a discrepancy between their models? Side note: the G4 is lighter than the G5 despite the thinner thigh rise. Side Side note: The Vaughn V8 catcher feels gooood . The Bauer 3X felt terrible on my hand.

    Wtf? Maybe @Kirk3190 can chime in here. According to the Warrior suggested pad measurements, I'm a 35" or even 36". I just got out of a shop and they only had 34" in the Senior GT. Tried them with my skates but no knee pads (at home drying) and not doing up the boot strap (it was too tight to achieve) and my knee fell just an inch or 2 from the top of the blocks. How is that possible when my FKT is 20.5"?
  14. Already doing that. I do see the difference between the 6000 and the 9000. Despite the 6000 having the double break and being 36" (what I had and sold a while ago), these 9000 are 35", single break and I swear they almost feel as tall. I've been trying to break down the boot but the foams are definitely stiffer in this model. Either I find a more modern pad to try or I mod the crap out of these to work, but then I might lose some resale value.
  15. If it's any conciliation, I'm using a fairly worn-in TGC spec RBK Premier and I do feel shots pretty much anywhere...and I'm playing so poorly right now compared to what I was before the pandemic that I'm really embarrassed about it. The team I got on is shit for defence in all ways imaginable and I have to step up my game to "super hero" mode if we want to win some before the real season starts in September.
  16. I find it odd but still flattering that it's mostly dudes coming in with the compliments loll ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  17. Well I wore my knee lock tighter tonight and STILL my knee tries to ride off the knee block. Tried to tighten my knee strap too before hitting the ice but it felt like it would mess with my rotation. I'm getting pissed man... To tie in with that other thread that says it's not always the gear...well in this case, it\s ALLLLLL the pads fault
  18. My current pandemic flow and beard ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  19. Anyone use, or at least tried on, the following and can compare size/bulkiness?: Senior GT2 G5 X3 (not the + one)
