  1. Excellent post. I enjoy learning more about other routines and movements. The more you know... For those, like me, that have digressed so far from normal hip ROM that any 90-90 pose or movement leaves you leaning hard in the opposite direction of the 'rear' leg: Sit your front leg sit bone on a yoga block making sure that the sit bone of the rear leg is NOT - it should be floating. Getting some altitude will allow you to first get into the proper position, but more importantly, altitude will allow you to breathe, contract, hold and release your contraction as intended. Over time, you may
  2. Send Brain's an email and ask for the MSRP of both the Int Pro and Sr. Pro Lines (MSRP of Int Pro / MSRP of Sr. Pro) ≈ (Retail of Int Pro / Retail of Sr. Pro), therefore: (MSRP Int Pro / MSRP Sr. Pro) x (Retail Sr. Pro) ≈ Retail Int Pro
  3. One thing that I have noticed on Vaughn gear from C/As, to pads, to undergarments is that they are consistent in their use of materials and components of obvious quality. I cannot speak to whether they use brand-name Clarino, Jen-Pro, Velcro or Cordura in their top level gear, but the materials are more often than not very hard-wearing and free of visual defects when new. Plastic buckles, for example, are often from manufacturers that actually designed the part. The hook & loop material, the nylon wrist straps, the lacing, the bindings - all of them are of obvious quality. As a beer league
  4. @keeperton I have an easy, reversible (although I can't imagine why I would do so) modification that allows the backhand protection on Brian's GNetik I-III and Heritage gloves to open up and away from the finger stalls. This will allow you to more quickly and thoroughly dry the glove, as well as allow you to properly sanitize the glove if and when you choose to do so. Tools & Materials 1 inch nylon webbing: 5 inches or so 1 inch plastic loop/buckle 1sq inch of Jenpro or similar Speedy Stitcher w/ waxed thread Needle nose pliers The photo
  5. @keeperton I realized that this mod doesn't completely apply to the IV due to the redesigned backhand. It does apply to the II, III and Heritage lines, for certain, however. I will create a new post with the modification for posterity. I've already hijacked this thread...
  6. I have a mod for this exact issue, if you're interested.
  7. I made the same wrist strap modification to a 2200 earlier this year. I sewed in a piece of JenPro to create a strap channel, and I ditched the leather strap for a nylon strap. I have no idea what Vaughn was thinking when they designed this wrist strap area, but it was a poor design.
  8. Helps when Mike Vaughn is one of the owners of Brian's
  9. Different only to be different
  10. If you're seeing shirtless Hank everywhere you look, then you must be looking at a photo of shirtless Hank. That's okay. Be you!
  11. As I often find myself doing, I will ‘take a break’ from normal chores and tasks around the house that, frankly, require all of the attention - Buy a house that requires work if you want the thrill of a lifetime… a lifetime which feels like it’s getting shorter with each successive ‘project’. Take away consistent hockey, add in being considered an essential worker in an area of the country that appears to desire contracting a virus that we cannot inoculate against, all while attempting to help support a woman who is one of the amazing front-line healthcare workers that specifically takes care
  12. I believe that the Pro90Z and Brian's "AirPac"-era pads both had foam in the outer rolls and possibly knee rolls. I know for a fact that my two sets of Brian's pads from this era had deer hair shin areas. I believe that this was done in the roll areas to limit or eliminate pad settling, and therefore, pad shrinkage. I think that this little blurb in the ad copy referring to deer hair construction is only to distinguish the Pro90Z from the Helite line, which by that time was well known as a pad with foam construction. Without a doubt, Vaughn's Legacy line was immensely successful and inno
  13. I recall the much the same, but I did not recall the Pro 90Z being an all-deer hair pad. I was certain it was a hybrid deer hair/kapok & foam model, but you would know better than I. I was under the impression the the Heaton Pro 90Z was to compete with Brian's 'AirPac' Lines (Alite, specifically), and the Helite was a Legacy competitor. I do remember Vaughn Legacy pads being unobtainium-like for what seemed like years. The GP-PRO/Legend pads were wild to me as a kid, not to mention rare in my area.
  14. My feelings on 'composite stick' are just that: Complicated. I would strongly consider "foam core" to be the genesis of the composite goalie stick, the composite being wood, fiberglass and a foam core. While I cannot pin down when foam core sticks arrived at retail, I can say with certainty that they were a quiet game changer for puck handling goalies. I was, for the most part, a glass-wrapped, all wood Sher-Wood user as a teenager. I recall buying a Branches stick that was marketed as a glass-shell-over-foam, and I was instantly lofting passes to the centerline. It was so much lighter and so
