    Brian's vs CCM Pad Sizing

    I should have been more specific that I meant INT pads only, but this is a good bit of info for those who are maybe between sizes in gear in general. I’m the same as you, senior everything fits me just fine, but it’s pad height the last few years has gotten tricky. Yeah, not only is the boot stiffer, but I know Reebok/CCM use a much more open boot angle for the Premier, close to a 120° vs 90°ish on their Eflex or even other brands. I wonder if a little time and effort (WEIGHT) couldn’t close that boot up just enough to dial in, should it not quite work out.

    @bunnyman666 does your INT gear run narrower? I've read that an INT/INT PRO pad isn't just shorter, but also narrower and has smaller overall dimensions vs its SR/SR PRO counterpart. And there's claims that the construction and materials are of a lesser quality as well. Thought I'd pick your brain on that, too....

    Brian's vs CCM Pad Sizing

    Anyone want to chime in with some hands-on experience? My ATK leaves me a hair short on Brian's 33+1, which makes sense. But CCM's FTK puts me pretty well bang on their 33+1. (I know that's only for reference, and doesn't always translate, but I'll likely be ordering online and not be able to try before I buy)

    It was so much easier when pads were soft and prone to sagging. Slightly-too-tall would sit perfect after a short break in 😂

    Brian's vs CCM Pad Sizing

    Thanks Bunny Dude! That sucks, I don't understand how I am 5'10" and don't meet the minimum senior sizing (33") in most brands hahahaha
  6. I'm wondering how Brian's sizing compares with CCM, specifically the Premier lineups and not the Eflex. I'm coming off the Alites in 33+1, that were just a tad too tall in the knee (no issues in the thigh rise), and wondering how a Premier might compare in that respect. Anyone try both brands to provide reference? @TheGoalNet - I'm looking at you! Thanks!
  7. HA! That's actually a great point. He does like to fight with people over the internet about Bitcoin, so...
  8. A contractor buddy pulled the trigger on a deposit too... I wonder if he just might be that much of a troll, though...

    I always thought these looked like a poor man's Armadilla from the side!
  10. If you plan to modify the paddle - standard, as the additional surface area gives you a) more room to work with, aka more mod options and b) a larger margin for error. If you'd like to use as is - steep, as it grips just a bit better and for me, more of a natural feel. In my experience, a round toe is typically attributed to a smaller overall blade, and square tends to be larger. I would recommend square!
  11. I actually thought about scoring one of these on the cheap, to wear under a sweater for the odd road hockey game.

    Cordura Pads

    Nice, thanks. We play some janky gym ball hockey a few times a year. I’ve always kept a junker set just for that, but nothing ever slid anyways. This would be simple enough to commission an inner gusset cover up, from say a PAW, Wilcox, etc.

    Is Sportcourt the rubbery finish gymnasium flooring?
