    Boddam gear

    Yeah, the Passaus clone is alittle more simple. Not sure if Boddam will be making my unit full time. Thought they were going to though.

    Hey @Chenner29 I was in a pair of 33+2 ccms Eflexes. Slightly to tall on the thighrise.

    Yeah the plan would be to stick to smaller manufacturers. Vaughn would end up out of my budget. The CCM Eflexes I had were used and original eflex 1s so I'm not sure how much more they could be worked in. Thanks for the thoughts thus far.
  7. Just seeking some thoughts from people. I'm in Boddam Hybrids right now and recently tried some CCM Eflexes. Found that I liked how much better they slide but still found them too stiff. So naturally i'm thinking Vaughn Velo is the way to go. I've looked around and haven't found quite what I want. I think I'd be best suited to a V4 like a Cory Schneider pad. So nothing has really popped up. Gets me thinking about going custom. Would like to keep pricing as low as possible ofcourse so I was considering Kenesky or Passau as they offer to do whatever one asks for. My question is do you feel that they will nail the requests to have a V4 or V5 type feel? I worry that since they don't do it all the time, there's a chance it doesn't work out. Am I better off just continuing the search for a good set of used Vaughns? It's one thing for a company to change color or strapping but the core of the pad isn't as easy to get right. I'm leaning towards Boddam Patriot, Kenesky or finding a good set of used Vaughns. Perhaps I'm over thinking this.
  8. I find that too with wax. With a narrow foot, I think I'm pulling on the laces more than most. Regular lace seems to slip alittle when I go to the next eyelet. Gonna try some Howie's.
  9. Glad I found this thread. I'm using Elite wax laces on my True skates. Last few skates the laces keep coming undone. I have a narrow foot so I'm wrenching on the laces as tight as I can. The skates are custom but still feel like I'm tightening more and more as the skate has broken in. I'm thinking the wax is worn off and just need a new pair. If I'm looking for the best hold, should I try Howie's?

    Biggest Gear Regret

    Bought Eagle Fusions. They were great flat faced pads just werent for me. I've always been better in softer pads. Selling most of my old stuff is big regret. I used to have a pair of areoflex pads back in the day. Sold them and my koho 550 pads. Should have hung onto more gear.
  13. Good point! I also take my footbeds out after every use. Only put back in just before i wear them.
  14. Ive had my custom True 2 piece since march. No issues. Guy at the store said make sure they are aired out and you wont have issues. I use a fan and dehumidifier after games. Keeps all my gear dry. So far so good!
