    The FRS is legit. Really stable and closes the 5-hole quickly
  • Glove
    Lefevre 20.1
  • Review:
    580 break = best break. Game Ready+ is easy to close and still has great protection.

  • Review:
    Best skates I've ever worn. Feels like a slipper on your foot.
  • Knee Pads
    Bauer 1X
  • Review:
    Best knee pads I've used so far. Curve composite piece is very protective. Not as bulky as other similarly protective knee pads.

    Very protective and comfortable.

  • Review:
    Protective and does not have a huge waist piece. Important because it doesn't get in the way of your pants/CA when crouching forward.

  1. I've tried all the variations of Lundy loop/no bootstrap/through different parts of the skate, and I still find that I like mine running under the heel. It is loose, but keeps the pads from riding up too much when in the butterfly and moving around.
  2. I will always advocate for True skates. Most comfortable pair I've worn and fit your stiff side-to-side but flexible front-to-back (crouching position) - I believe they also have stock skates that would fit nicely with some baking. https://www.goaliemonkey.com/true-goalie-skates-stock-two-piece-senior.html It would help to know what price point you're looking at, to better tailor recommendations.
  3. If you're on the border in terms of hand size, I would recommend getting intermediate palms on the glove. The finger stalls on the intermediate internals are shorter and a bit narrower than the senior versions. In my opinion, being able to snugly fit your hand into them helps with generating the force required to close the glove; there isn't as much "lost energy" with your fingers wiggling about while also trying to close it. Blocker to me is a personal preference (I like mine loose/roomier). The 580 break closes like you're making a "thumb's up" 👍 sign. What break is your current glove,
  4. My Ef4 broke in exactly the same place. I used it for about a year, so I can't complain. It was a great stick before it broke - I really liked the soft feel of it.
  5. I'm currently using a 580 and I really like it.
  6. Thanks! That is interesting. Do you like the feel of any of the CCM gloves?
  7. What CCM break is closest to the Warrior 75 degree on the GT2 glove? I think it would be the 600, but I am not positive.
  8. This is the same bag I've been using for 3+ years. It has plenty room for all my gear, pads included. I've gotten used to it not having the U-shaped opening, but other than that I have zero complaints. Been very durable for me, too.
  9. I'm currently using a Bauer US stick and it's been a tank for me. Maybe I've been lucky, but I think they did a great job with it.
  10. Quick should just wear his regular pads for the retro nights and see who gets the joke.
  11. Looks really nice! It reminds me of a reversed version of the old TPS Icecap graphic, that I had on my old GNETIK pads.

    Yes. I have it stretching out currently, and I'll alternate it held shut and stretched open until I get to use it on the ice. Should only take a couple days to be all broken in.

    Since my gear finally arrived, I got a change to play around with some of it last night when I got home from work. Feels very well balanced and comfortable. The 580 glove has a great, grippy interior, and the game ready xtra palm closed easily right out of the box. The 580 break also feels much more natural for my hand closure than the 600 break does. Hopefully I'll get to sub somewhere one night this week to dial in all the strapping before my regular skate on Saturday morning. IMG_2354.MOV
  14. I found that for CCM skates, especially the smaller sizings, that the cowling and runner are somewhat oversized for the skate boot. I looked at the AS1 and found the boot much more comfortable than the Bauer 2X, but did not buy it because there was a 3/4-1" gap between the end of the toe on the boot and the toe portion of the cowling, which translated into a runner longer than I wanted to use.

    Yes, I have been in contact with FedEx since Monday when it was supposed to be delivered. They have yet to figure out why it is being held up - or yet to tell me, at any rate. If I knew why it was not clearing, I would happily do something about it. Shortly after I posted the initial question, someone from Lefevre finally got back to me saying that they were in contact with FedEx as well, and that they’d let me know when they had more information. Maybe they got an alert that someone had made public noise about their lack of response.
