  1. That's what I figured. I was kinda hoping they had brought that over to retail since I like the look of it but I don't think it really makes a difference as to how they perform. I hope I like the cuff on the blocker as I went with the same one that you did as I hadn't tried this style yet.

    I feel like CCM has almost always had one piece of their set that always seems off compared to the other two when you "match" all the color zones across the set.
  3. These look great. I'm going to have to come look through these pictures whenever I get impatient waiting for my set to get here. Couple of quick questions @TheGoalNet what do you think of the quick release strap on the blocker compared to the Velcro? Personally I am looking forward to it as I have never felt I could get a Lefevre blocker loose enough. I think I can tell by the one picture but I assume the non Canadian made pads still have the calf and knee wing attached flush without the exposed lacing?

    That was the one thing I went back and fourth on since I know the sport gold is going to look dirty wayyyyyy quicker than the black but it will give everything a bit of a pop in those initial photo ops when they arrive. And really that's all that matters in the end haha.

    Yeah, the zones really only match when the goalie is standing in that one exact position and only just the way the colors line up. But as far as the amount of each color on each piece it makes sense to do the glove separate to basically flip the zones since for some reason it's over half the glove that can only be a specific color. Since the set I did was mostly black on the front of everything I just left the front zones matching but had to do them separate to get the color combo on the back that I wanted.

    I’m not concerned about the wait time. That is what it is. My issue is they never reached out to confirm specs or even let me know that the order had been placed or when I should expect it. I had to contact them to get that info a week after I placed the order. I’m not trying to bash them or anything as I’ve never had a poor experience with them prior but when you drop that kind of coin and they don’t follow their own published steps for a custom order I probably won’t make another one with them.

    Yeah not really impressed at this point. I don't know if there was a recent rush of orders or what the deal is but Monkey has been pretty poor with communication up to this point so I'm just hoping they were adding in the week it took them to submit the order to CCM and the week it usually takes to ship from Cali to ND. The time frame isn't a huge deal as my current pads are only a few months old but I can't recall having this hopeless of a custom order experience in the past.

    I’ve used 4 pro level Reebok/CCM blockers during the past ten plus years and have never had durability issues with any of them. I’ve also never ran into the cuff issues on the glove that other people have had so maybe I’ve been lucky. This is both Canadian made and offshore.

    Was just quoted 11-14 weeks now for EF4 orders. That to go along with the week it took GoalieMonkey to submit my order. If anyone that works there is on these boards you guys really need to work on your communication as I was less than impressed with the custom ordering process.
  10. I get hit by it on mobile as well. Only on this site. Using an iPhone. I can grab a screen shot next time it pops up.

    Order placed tonight. Not sure the current wait times but I'm sure GoalieMonkey will let me know tomorrow.
  12. I assume all retail orders have to get that goofy sublimated material in the spears? I don’t mind it but it really limits what colors you can do while trying to block colors together. Also, is there any spots specifically not to get speed skin for wear concerns? Hoping to get an order in this month but having customizer paralysis finalizing a color scheme.
  13. Haha go big or go home right. Might as well switch to cowling-less skates too if you haven't already. But really glove cuffs is one of the least noticeable changes that I've dealt with. I'd say that SLR strapping will be the biggest adjustment for you but once you get used to it elastic/velcro is so much better than leather straps.
  14. If you've never done 1-piece before I'd give it a shot. I can play with either but 1-piece feels way more connected and I seem to get more predictable rebounds off the cuff
  15. Judging by their feedback it's just a scam. Sideline has gone to hell in a real quick hurry. They took away commenting on posts which actually went a long way in calling out peoples BS when they would try to pass something off as something better than it was. They also just let businesses spam the hockey section with 7 year old equipment they are still trying to sell for retail price.
