  1. Pack up your gear into the safest (lock on a bag(a) instead of boxing it should be okay but ask your local shipper (DHL, UPS, & FedEx for example), reasonable to move package count. Use a tape measure and scale (always round up) to get your dimensions (LxWxH) and weight of each piece. Call your airline and ask how much the carry on charge will be using the info you now have, as well as call your local shippers for quotes and additional questions you may have (locks are okay through customs?). You should be able to add insurance to shipping for a small fee. If it smells like a dead body
  2. Thanks for sharing. The 2nd one means a lot to me. Me cleaning the house on a Saturday for the wife 😁
  3. Yes, the knee cradle is what I meant and you green boxed perfectly. I removed that from my pads and a friend's CCM Eflex set and it's much nicer without it imo.
  4. I would remove the stitched in landing gear, as a suggestion. I have done it on my old RBK's to open up the knee area more when I first started using knee pads.
  5. When I got my Warrior GT2 senior glove, I immediately noticed how tight the skate lace job was from the factory. It's a double-t and the sides were like trampolines and the center webbing was the thickest braid, you couldn't see through it. Nothing about the pocket was soft. And it felt like the glove was difficult to close. After re-lacing it much more loosely, the glove was noticeably easier to close and open. I have pics in the glove re-lacing thread here:
  6. I would definitely get the sideline swap app and start looking at that daily. Deals pop up on even new gear that is worth taking advantage of. For instance I got a Warrior GT2 senior glove set for $250.00 brand new. That's the cost of the catcher alone on goaliemonkey. Brands are all very personal preference. I used the Simmons 995 and 998 series gloves for years (loved them) and just moved to Warrior gloves about 6 months ago.
  7. The leg channel and toe tie will keep the pad centered. I would remove it to allow unlimited freedom of movement there. I ditched my boot straps on my pads several years back and wish I had done it sooner. Regardless, if you don't like it after a few tries you can always put them back on.
  8. I grew up with him too. The Huckstables were a nice family. That's hollyweird for ya though!
  9. Bill Cosby still an influence? 😆
  10. But...but....it's not vaporized....
  11. I posted this in another thread last year. It's not a functioning website but you can dig. https://web.archive.org/web/20131103071332/http://www.goaliestore.com/board/index.php
  12. Check page 2 on this thread from an awesome contributing member here @ArdeFIN
  13. Didn't know he was in a car accident until I saw this posted recently. Was happy to see him come back from his concussion a couple years back. Love his positive outlook.
