    I want my stuff to last over time. Pro will last a lot longer than SR level gear if you treat it right, plus the protection benefits outweigh Senior level protection all day long. It also depends on what piece of senior vs Pro gear we are talking about, brands, etc. In Beer Leagues, depending on the skill level, guys can REALLY shoot the puck. I personally need the protection and longevity that Pro gear offers, which is why I primarily wear full Pro gear (CCM, in my case). It also coms down to personal budgets also. I don't want another goalie to break the bank with Pro level gear, but if you can, it really is a good investment, assuming you treat year gear well and are going to be hanging onto it for a good number of years.
  2. Agreed. I would also recommend Pro Laces as well, especially the TGN Spec versions. I was a skate lace toe-tie guy for life and had no plans on switching because, like you, I prefer the looser feel of a toe tie option. With the TGN Spec versions, there is already built in slack so it has a looser feel, but the elastics do the job when called upon. It's a great mix of both worlds. I have been very happy with mine. You can also customize the elastic cover and velcro tabs to match, if you care about that stuff. Here's mine: In hindsight, I probably would have optioned to go with the black elastic cover option instead of white due to it getting stained,etc. But these have been going strong for about months now multiple times a week.
  3. I modded my last pair of ancient Bauer's with a Lundy loop. It got the job done. My new skates have the Lundy loop already and I love them. As for your original concerns, your pads look pretty good. I wear my pads crazy loose, plus before I switched to Pro Laces I had the added slack from my skate lace toe ties, my pads would hang fairly low. But as long as your knee falls into place when making saves and your knee doesn't fall out of the stack, you'll be fine.
  4. Yeah, I think it's best if they just cancel the rest of the year and start fresh in October. Not worth to risk the spreading of COVID-19.
  5. It could be the inner padding, potentially. If it's removable, I would try that. On all my pants I've removed the inner leg protection right away. Just didn't work for me and I found that protection a tad overkill.
  6. Yeah, this was probably a one-off as all the one-PC toes of the True skates I've seen have looked in good shape. Just wanted to post because it was interested to see a skate cracked like that. Glad to see you take care of your skates so well. Definitely a piece of gear we can't ignore.
  7. Old thread, but I thought I'd post these here. I'm glad I went with a two piece. I'm sure it's just a fluke, but still. Check out that crack in the toe. Not my skates. Saw these on SideLine swap:
  8. Not C/A related, but that's one of the reasons why a still got leather straps on my pads when I ordered my custom Premier 1 pads. Less than six months of owning the pads, one of the leg channel and knee cradle velcro peices was too worn out and barely held on. If I didn't have straps, the pad would have been way too floppy during games when the velcro just didn't hold. I had to get it replaced and, to it's credit, been holding on great since. It was dissappointing and probably a one-off, but as a beer league goalie I want my stuff to last as long as possible with as little repairs as possible. My CCM C/A still has the straps. I might be in the minority here, especially with all the new stuff now being loaded with velcro, but it's just not for me. I respect it and I totally see the benefits, but practically it's just personally not my thing. I'm sure if it's built with good quality velcro it should be fine though.
  9. That's a good idea. I've been looking for a solution for this type of wear for the inner/bottom binding. Until now i've been using a small bit tape.
  10. Loved MAF's Premier 2's. I didn't have that colour combo, but I loved my blue/white/silver set back in the day.
  11. I'd see if you can track down another Vaughn PVE.
