  1. This is exactly what was wrong with mine, it is closing (or you have broken it) in the wrong place. It just needs re-broken. Read that thread and watch the video. It is totally fixable, my CCM now closes very well. https://www.thegoalnet.com/forums/topic/3006-glove-break-in-wrong-place-can-i-fix/
  2. You could definitely get that repaired in the meantime. Looks like only the outer layer is damaged. I would talk to Shawn at Kustom Composites, he will at least be able to advice on a cost for a repair.
  3. He's made masks for some of the biggest names in NHL history. He made masks for Lefebvre in the 80s and 90s, and he'll do almost anything you want in a mask. And his prices are fantastic. For other makers of the same pedigree you're paying a lot more - like Harrison (arguably the godfather to be fair) who is $1800USD for fiberglass only, and Dillon who is $1000USD. Nobody is going to be playing any time soon so the wait doesn't really matter to me.
  4. He told me 35 to 38 weeks right now, so I've pulled the trigger fully aware that I won't get it for 8 - 9 months. He's still working full time from the sound of it.
  5. Great article, and also completely correct on your last point. Concussions to NHL goalies are seldom caused by pucks, they are caused by collisions with other players. Concussion is not caused by impact to the head, it is caused by movement of the head and the consequent movement of the brain inside the skul. For that reason helmets do not prevent concussions...unless you could somehow put a helmet around your brain inside your skull https://eu.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2019/09/20/nhl-goaltenders-getting-concussions-at-an-alarming-rate/40178693/
  6. Good to hear, because I've just sent payment for a full Kevlar. Such good value, the only downside is the long waiting time - but I'm taking that as a good sign!
  7. Can anyone tell me what the weight difference is between the Kevlar and Fiberglass? I'm looking to order soon and if there's a good saving I'm going full Kevlar. Ignore - just read the website, 2.2lbs Kevlar, 3lbs for Fiberglass. I'm assuming the cage is not included in these wights? Is it worth going for the full Kevlar?
  8. Like some others I'm not a fan of split graphics. Goalies don't stand with pads together anymore so I don't really see the point. That Brians design is far better IMO.
  9. Just as it says, looking for a Jofa 481 dangler, any color but I think they're either clear or white. Need one to complete a look. Thanks!
  10. Definitely worth a shot before buying a new glove - check out the video with the CCM glove I posted earlier for a good method. I baked it in my oven for a few mins at 80 degrees celsius, then bend at desired brake, put a stick in there to wrap it around and strapped it up with a belt. Did this a few times, then soaked it, and wrapped it up again. Eventually got it perfect.
  11. Not that I recall, but if you look at your glove I don't think the problem isn't the T itself, the issue starts further back because your glove is closing over too far. At least that's what it looks like. I would suggest your break is in the wrong place, and needs to be further forward - red line is your current break, green line is where it needs to be imo. This was the issue with my glove too, can't remember what the T was like as it's sorted now.
  12. I did what this guy describes, I also had that slight bulge that stopped clean closing. My glove now closes perfectly.
  13. Itech 950 was plastic garbage, contrary to the Bauer 950, which is full fiberglass. Just realised how old this thread is, doh.
  14. Just to follow up on this, I put the glove in the oven for a few mins, then put a stick handle in the glove and forced it to curve in the correct place, and strapped it up. Did this repeatedly. Then soaked it and strapped it up again. It is now breaking perfectly as it should.
  15. Thanks that's interesting, his glove closes so well there. Mine is stiff as F**k despite having a year of use but the "hinge" is in the wrong place so it's just so hard to close. I try other people's gloves and they flap like a bird, mine just doesn't and my glove hand has really suffered save-wise since buying this glove. I used to be able to flash the leather no problem, but this glove just couldn't catch a cold. I'll try cooking it as he mentions and wrapping it tight on a stick handle.
