@southpawtendy48 Big fan of all the teal. I've never had a reason to have my own teal stuff, but my first mites team was teal back in the day!
Here's a photodump of my new gear that I posted the .png file of when I submitted it to The Hockey Shop back in May. Thanks to Cam, and the rest of his staff, up there for all their help. I'll put notes next to pictures that are meant to highlight customization or other small things.
Front and landing pictures to highlight the asymmetry.
IV Strap Numbers and front butterfly
I asked for the bottom side of the boot to be done like the G3netiks, which means that instead of the primo being only where the boot sets, it's also on the inside of the toe. Also shows my flex setting, which is the same as stock. I would have done the boot as a 5, but even Brian's said it's basically the same and I figured using a 4 would add some longevity maybe.
How I strap up the back. I tried joining the knee strap to the upper area of the calf wrap and found it lets my knee too much to my own liking. I also attach the knee pads to the tab on the pad and do my boot through a lundy-loop. I got both additional straps, but removed the top one and kept the bottom one. I will likely tighten the bottom nylon one a little and in the future I'll make sure to get pads with a professor strap.
Comparison to the G3netik. Same size, 32"+2" for both. The 3s are much straighter in profile, IVs came a little more precurved. I'm definitely still getting used to the thigh being stiffer, I'd likely shorten the thigh by 0.5" in the future.
Optik blocker and GIV glove. Coming from Optik blocker and glove, I greatly prefer this glove even though I'm still getting used to it. It feels like it opens up a lot less, but that's really because it's so much less effort to open and close it for me, thing's a beauty and feels great on the hand.
Primo on the blocker part that goes on the ice for wear reasons. I stayed with the Optik blocker since I liked my first so much, though on the newer ones they're using a digitech palm without me asking. No differing opinion yet since the rest of the blocker is still so stiff that it feels different enough.
