  1. Gear hygiene super important... but I'm also cheap. heh heh. I've tried sanisport and captodour and they were great but cost per bottle was too much. When I was selling one of my sets a guy told me about dettol and water solution and I use about a 1:9 part mix of dettol to water and it works great. One bottle of dettol is under $10 and that lasted me almost a year. The only drawback is that it smells like a hospital around you for a bit, but that's also not bad because your teammates will hate the smell and sit further away so you have more space to put on gear. 😆 For deep cleaning I use front load washer and for areas that are sweat-stained or extra gross I put oxi-clean gel on it (in addition to putting oxiclean powder in the load). Voila.
  2. Get the Kenesky one! Ain't that the truth. I'm still getting used to the active drop leg channel on my RGT2s--wasn't used to the loose feeling and wrapped mine too tight the other day and one time I landed on the face of the pad. Gotta trust the system.
  3. Plot twist, actually not Travis and just someone out to impersonate him and tarnish his good name.

    R GT/2

    7 weeks and 5 days after ordering, my RGT2 / RG4 set has arrived (RGT2 Gloves, RG4 Gloves)!!! Super happy with how they turned out, only thing would be how white on jenpro and weave is a bit off, but I suppose that makes sense (that they'd have different tones as they're different materials, not sure if anyone knows anything about this). Will also be putting on TGN Spec Pro Laces on there instead of ARS or lace toe ties.

    I'll pop 'em in the RGT2 thread after I pick them up today!

    Custom Gear Wait Times

    Ordered RGT2 Pro leg pads, RG4 catcher and blocker Sunday April 28, just got word today that my set has arrived, picking up tomorrow! 😁
  7. On my 3mm Bauer blades I usually do 7/16", recently got skates profiled (Prosharp Detroit2) and sharpened 'em at 1/2", feel like they're a good balance of bite and glide. Highly recommend.

    Good to know, that's a great problem to have! All good, I was just trying to use your guys' IG channel to see if my set's complete, I'll be more than happy with getting them on the ice--and of course sharing pics of the set here with everyone.

    Oh strange, guess it's a bit different vs other brands, most just use a wide elastic strap. How do you like your OPTIKs? Keep us posted on how the glove is!

    Nice.. like the good 'ol days when every piece of gear is from a different manufacturer. haha. It seems most folks with warrior opt to strap the one behind the knee down to the calf. I ordered a G4 catcher, but the RGT2 catcher feels very comfortable in hand. Happy catching!

    Was yours a full set? I ordered mine April 28th and still holding my breath. Does anyone know if Warrior posts every custom set they make on their Instagram? I keep hoping I'll see mine on there as a signal that mine will be shipped soon.

    Lookin good! What leg pads do you have with these?
  13. Great job! The original must've been a literary masterpiece. Re: the catcher palm--yes I believe it's reinforced with hypercomp. They seem to have went HAM with hypercomp (which is awesome). Their pro+ knee guards have it too. A bit overkill, but it's a good balance of weight-saving and protection. Re: the "hand slippage": I think it's the byproduct of having no strap at the wrist, but I actually think your hand isn't supposed to be as shoved in like in other gloves. The benefit of Warrior catchers is the wrist mobility and ability to angle your catcher to the puck with no hindrance so though it's definitely a different feel, I'm not sure if it's a negative thing per se, just... different. Re: the wear on the thigh rises: Is it weave there? I feel like weave-like materials don't do really well rubbing against each other. On my old Optiks and a few other folks I know they had wear on the corners--luckily they didn't get worse over time. That's Primo though and of course different than Warrior's weave. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts! I'm dying waiting for my set to come in.
  14. The long term review??? I've been waiting for that one! Better be very well thought and coherent. 😁
  15. as long as it doesn't stink like old gear then I'm game!
