  1. If you want to pm me your tracking number and zipcode it's going to I can call FedEx international support tomorrow and see if I can possibly find out any different info.
  2. You need to get that out of customs, if it has not cleared, asap before it goes general order and will get sent to a gov warehouse for additional fees and storage costs. Have you contacted Fedex with your tracking number?
  3. I pictured it as you had wrapped a good portion of the paddle for some reason, but I get what you mean now. Thanks for the pics DL42.
  4. You should post a final pic of what you ended up with. I would imagine the whole set up adds a bit of weight to the stick? I would definitely try your idea. I think I could make it work as I'm using a 23.5" intermediate, but was comfortable as well with a 25" senior. I was going for a minimalist tape job or I would have added a tape bump or two (top and bottom of index finger down the paddle) underneath the tape for additional support, but wanted to try this first (pic is my covid-house stick with this). I've never owned a top tier stick until now, so I wanted to keep the weight down. I
  5. Thanks, I have seene that. The tennis overwrap is probably close to the same thing. Curious to the Bauer's durability. 3 bucks for 3 wraps, or 7 bucks for one that doesn't appear to be long enough to go down the paddle. I'll stick with the overwrap.
  6. After, I'm pretty sure, reading on here about tennis overwraps, I did some experimenting with tapes on the paddle, knob and blade. While I'm not willing to cut a fiberglass paddle (yet), I have no issues cutting the shaft down a few inches (3-6") if necessary. I was cutting my senior sticks but have yet to cut my intermediate sticks since starting to use them this year. For the paddle, regular hockey cloth tape is the least grippy, then grip tape, then tennis overwrap tape. I do have to seal it up with some cloth tape, and I probably could have used more for a better tape job, but I was go
  7. I see what you're saying now about the change midway through the mid-lane and, no, it was not done on purpose. I knew after I was done that something looked odd and that I may have to redo it, but now I will for sure. The biggest issue was the thumb-side starting knot was actually inside the thumb area inside the glove. It took several blind grabs with needle-nose pliers to get the original knot out and, although I wanted to do it differently and make it easier for next time, I ended up redoing the same way as the original.
  8. @ArdeFIN Thanks for the tutorial. I redid my Simmons 995 with skate lace back in 2010 or 2011 using a guide from the GSBB. By the time I got my 998 glove in 2015, I had a 3 year old and didn't want to take the time to do it again, so I paid Simmons a little extra to have it done. It was more than worth it as I had no idea how to tackle the double T and they did a nice job. Now in 2020, I just got set of Warrior R/GT2 senior gloves and I was excited it was going to come with skate lace. Unfortunately, the lace job was less than desirable. The mid lace was a tight spine and the sides
  9. I would email PAW and ask her.
  10. How does a round or squared toe affect your hand positioning? That doesn't seem to make sense. Also, as above, I would prefer a square toe, but I've moved to the Mzarek curve which only comes rounded.
  11. I do this over my shock doctor catchers shorts/cup, then compression pants, then goalie cup. Stays in place and never slips. No wasting tape. Uses a regular adult Bauer garter and some lace.
  12. I'm right-handed and most comfortable shooting right-handed. So as a regular goalie with a left-handed stick, the Turco grip appealed to me, but I had no idea how to execute it. I've made it a point to work on my shooting/passing/stick-handling for the last year and a half (ever since this one good defenseman "encouraged" me to come out and play the puck because he was sick of coming all the way back to get it). It has always been the weakest part of my game, aka, it was not a part of my game. The confidence thing was definitely a huge issue to overcome just to try and do it. And yes, you f
  13. Those were the days! I learned so much from the GSBB back in the day.
  14. I'm in a 995 that is starting to break down now. I may try to get another year out of it. You definitely need to upgrade.
