  1. I am going to guess would be the weave on the sliding surface. To get companies to build specs for certain shops they require a minimum order. So they prob order X number of pads with that colour way to get what they want.
  2. Skate lab does have goalie. I don't find it accurate for my feet personally it works for my co workers but my feet are so bad i break it lol.
  3. What makes a happy goalie guy! His new custom warrior set. Good thing as I sold my bauer 2x pro pads and needed something to wear. 20190614_160200.mp4
  4. Why? Because that's what Scott said in his VH videos when baking the skates lol. Never though of the expansion portion when standing. If you tie it really tight up top and the boot wraps too much it could prevent forward flex and its locking your foot down too much and can dig into your leg like mine when getting into your stance. he mentions 90% Here is the video. and yes you pull the laces horizontal as you can stretch and rip the eyelets it has happened before at work. Some of the new Bauer player skates may not apply as much as they are injected eyelets.
  5. I would recommend tieing them up 80% percent of what you normally do. You could damage the boot if you are one of those people that crank there skates super tight! Reason you do 80% is the top can wrap too much and cause excessive rubbing which is a problem I had.
  6. I will chime in on this! I do work for source for sports the reason they won't ship to you as we are restricted by CCM and Bauer to sell to the US as a lot of US hockey stores would have a hard time selling their product because the US dollar is very strong and people would just order from Canada as it would be significantly cheaper.
  7. When I wore it I forgot I was wearing a new chesty! I will get to test it out this weekend I'm sure all of it will improve! I will have time to make small adjustments to before the next game! I will post a mini review on everything after I am done this weekend!

    not removable as I would have swapped to the Original GT part. Will be available shortly. I believe next week is launch I have to double check! hypercomp would be the main difference and the internals. I will try to get the differences later today. I am working on our new site so I don't get much free time to get to post on here. I should hopefully have the new site up and running within the next couple weeks!
  9. I will be honest so far out of the box I have lost a little bit of mobility. The shoulder floaters are beefier and a bit thicker which slightly catches on my mask but nothing to bother me I just notice it more now. The arms are a lot beefier and movement has been slightly affected. I have a harder time drinking from my water bottle but I have only skated in the chest twice now. Will be playing 2 games Friday and two game Saturday so I will make adjustments as needed. I think this chest actually needs a couple of skates to break in unlike the original Warrior GT model! That's my so far opinion on it!

    Mid personally I find the comfiest and I agree about moving the thumb i moved it to far forward the other day and had a hard time drinking but I sold my G4 before I got these so I couldn't see how I had it set up. Mobility is awesome in the unit. I did find my chin was catching slightly on the floaters as they are a bit thicker than the original. I set it up pretty much the same way as I did with the old one and my chin would catch a bit nothing to impede but I notice it. the lower section is definitely wider. I wish this was tapered like the original as I had better mobility with my wrist and it didn't interfere with the blocker. I will be posting up a initial impression in the review section. I didn't play around with the strapping lots to get it where I needed and I had to tweak the thumb positioning to. I will add another note wore this set in a crucial game as I have a lot of confidence in warrior gear and I have worn them enough times to know how they feel and play. If we lost or tied we were going to play for third place but we squeaked out the win and won 5-3 (1 was an empty net). 2 goals no chance and the other one I tipped the puck in my own net! First save in them was a memorable one though. two on one passed across one timed I slid over caught the top of the pad and arm.
