  1. My son has this yeas 2s Pro - the insoles cwarmar referenced above look like the ones that came with the skates? I don’t remember why but my s9n installed his old Superfeet quickly into his new skates ! Chenner Graf/Sidas are in fact the insoles I saw - I was originally looking at a pair that seemed closer to the Superfeet but I found them to be too soft these where off the shelf units. i then brought up a question about a concern my son had about his skates that might require some fitting and ended talking about footbeds again and a custom Graf/Sidas was brought too my attention ! Will discuss with my son - he certainly has not complained about the comfort of his skates so this might end up being all for nothing but will review with him when we go for an adjustment to his skate
  2. While getting my sons skates sharpened yesterday I browsed around the shop and came across custom molded footbeds! The owner told me she swears by them - does anyone use this type of footbed ? This is still relatively expensive $150 ++ plus taxes so I would like some feedback - thanks
  3. Wow $1000 buck a set certainly not an expense I would be able to wrap my head around. Thanks for the feedback !
  4. Watching tonight’s game between Boston and Columbus and on the Boston goal they soomed in on the goal line, during this zoom in I realized that he is not wearing a 1 piece True skate, his holder looks like last years CCM with bolts on the side of the holder to hold the blade ?. Does anyone know who’s holder he uses ?
  5. Teezzle’s got the answer find the seam and add material there - did that to my sons jerseys this season. Find a seamstress easy peazy
  6. Snowman thanks for the heads up - picked two of these up for my son, awesome stick at a great price !
  7. Seagoal sorry for the delay but here's the fix - just picked it up from SRS in Montreal $35
  8. WOW this could not have come up at a better time - my sons has gotten dinged twice since he got his TGN Spec CCM Pro twice in that region. Going to SRS (authorized Bauer repair shop) on Monday to get a similar fix - will provide details when done.
  9. Max - what are you currently wearing and what are issues ? Typically a good hockey shop should be able to mod your skates to solve most issues you might be having, check this out in your region? Finally when you have the money to buy a pair of custom skates - take a look at Bauer/CCM and possibly Graf if they offer this option as well
  10. Aquilzz - thanks for confirming what I am seeing out in the market. We dodged a bullit when True screwed up my sons second pair of skates, left them at the store and got my money back. True 2 piece - goalie skates will run you about 1k both CCM and Bauer might cost you slightly more up front but at the end of the day will last you longer so cheaper without all the drama. i can’t emphasize to you all how CHEAP these skates are I give them +/- 2 years and they will be dead
  11. Jonathon, stay away from True skates unless you have issues with your feet! Even then Bauer makes custom skates and so does CCM my son waisted over 3 months with them earlier this season and after two attempts by them to build a proper skate I got my money back from our LhS. Nearly every goalie skate that I have seen 8 - 6 of them have had issues from ripped liners/exterior upper sections coming undone/ in our case liner ripped on molding of skates at the store and two sets of skates with crooked blade holders. I know their comfortable my sons can attest to that but so are his Bauer 2S off the shelf. i don’t think that the minor performance benefits you would get from their product outweighs the highly probable issues you will end up having with their product. My sons True experience was a total fiasco - this was by far the worst goalie equipment purchase we ever made!

    Stick sizing advice

    Isles - great article matt that’s a similar explanation my sons goalie coach gave us a few years ago. He’s about 6’1’’ and uses a 26 inch BPM 150 Take the time to read the article and experiment as well
  13. Guys - quick update so I just tried purring OEM of the two sets of Step fatblades that are hard to set in place - what I did as a test was to put soapy water to get them in. Blades when in better than usual, will continue using this system for the near future, i also have been exchanging with Step on what I think the problem is - if anything comes out off this I will advice!
  14. Insert - thank you for the feedback it looks like a very nice product, unfortunately I have yet to see one live. Question - sine it seems to have more padding than most other units and the padded sections are HUGE does it impede in any way your mobility?
  15. Do we have any feedback on this padded shirt from Vaughn yet ? FYI - CCM has a new version of their padded shirt which looks pretty good I will post a picture this weekend
