  1. I am currently looking into getting a new pair of skates. i currently wear a Bauer Supreme 2sPro size 8.5D, i am having issues with the depth of the ankle area of the skate, my inner ankle bone specifically. i have these little ankle socks with silicone pads i wear to even just put on the skates, as my inner ankle bone has gotten so bruised, the ankle pads help, but only so much. i went to my nearest source for sports here in Winnipeg, and tried on a set of pro return True 2-piece custom skates. right out of the gate they fit me surprisingly well, they were hard to get on, and the skate was pr
  2. I am well aware of popular social media Instagram accounts getting paid/ free gear to say good things about the companies equipment. With that being said there are Really no good social media accounts that goalies looking to get new gear can really rely on, due to the fact that these main stream accounts have to say good stuff or they won't get anything free no more, hockey reviews CA is good and so is TRAV4 but Travis job isn't to just review everything and im not expecting him to anyways he wants to focus on pro hockey which im totally ok with, hockey reviews CA I have to really take with a
  3. I'm in the market for new skates and I'm interested in the True two-piece and Bauer 2xPro's. I've been leaning True as my left foot is about a full size bigger then my right and trying to get skates that fit and feel comfortable on both feet has always been an issue. That would probably be solved with True's, but I've heard lots of durability issues with them. I've seen a lot of conflicting thoughts on them. Next year I'm playing high level U15 and I'll be skating 6+ times a week when the season starts (hopefully) so they will take a beating. I've always worn Bauer skates so I'm a bit hesitant
  4. So I’ve used the Bauer S29 pads for two ices now, and I’ve had a pretty bad experience with them so far. The inner parts of the leg channel constantly get stuck inside my skates. This stops them from rotating properly, and really just messes up my game completely. Is there any fix to this?
  5. I was asked generously by @TheGoalNet to review my James Reimer pro return 1S. I'm going to try to make it as detailed as possible to address questions or concerns people have with the pad, considering there is both a ton of hype and criticism about these pads. I apologize for the size of the pictures, as I took them with my new phone and have no idea how to scale them down. Hoping their size helps people see, with as much detail as possible, what I am trying to articulate here. I encourage as many people to read the full thing. I will discuss what I love about them, some of the mods done to t
  6. Wondering what anybody knows about the Bauer custom skate program. I was going to get True Two-Pieces as my feet are are a full size different, but after hearing lots of other people's durability issues, I'm now looking into Custom 2x Pro's now. there isn't much info on Bauer's custom goalie skates but I'm just interested to hear what other have to say about it.

  8. In the beginning... and in this case that's early March 2019... I made the decision to not only move from CCM to Bauer... but that if I was making the switch I might as well go all out and go True Design. While unavailable for retail customers at the time Bauer had already committed to doing so and I wanted to get ahead of the game. I contacted Vince Arnone (@thevincenzoarnone on IG) who had already done a litany of custom designs for NHLers, KHLers, Juniors, College, and Beer League goaltenders. After a number of iterations we arrived at a relatively simple vintage design... my intention bein
  9. Hi The Goal Net forums! So since I own both Bauer lines as custom sets, I thought it would be nice to make a detailed analysis of both lines. As a sales advisor and goalie fit expert in a retailer, people often ask me how the vapor are different if both lines offer hard as hell rebounds. Most of the time I simply answer that I feel Vapor or Supreme is more a spec than anyother thing. Basically, most of teh ones who prefer a connected feel will be drawn towards the vapors, and those who prefer otherwise the supremes. There are more diffences but we will dive deeper within the "review". Let
  10. I'm looking to make the leap into custom gear. I'm currently in SLR 1s (32+2) with VE8 mitts (used to have VE8 pads as well, but really disliked them). Looking for input on moving into a new company; I've been looking at Bauer or Brians - particularly because custom options allow for a smaller palm on the mitts. I've read that while Vapor is more of a hybrid pad - it still kicks out some big rebounds (also - I wear a 2x pro c/a, and figure the same ecosystem ensures a better fit). I've tried the strapping on the Vapors and find it very comfortable. I've also heard a lot of good things about th
  11. Does anyone know if Bauer is planning on updating/tweaking its 960xpm mask in the next 12 months? I need to invest in a new bucket before next season, and was wondering whether a new model might be in the offering (in which case I could get the 960xpm at a discount).
  12. I figured I'd try a side by side comparison of the 1S and 2S lines. Lots of obvious and straight forward updates, a few less obvious ones, and a few that don't really do anything, but they're there. I'll try to keep it to point form notes and expand on the ones I find more interesting. These are all just design comparisons, I've only used the 2S set once since I got them. Other than not really needing any break-in time (other than steaming the glove in the store), I won't go into functional differences too much. Blocker The profile of the inside board looks a little bit di
  13. Qty (2) Bauer NME Certified Straight Bar Senior Replacement Cages Received them with my new NME VTX but immediately swapped out for a Cateye... so these are unused and brand new. I posted them on SidelineSwap... but I'm really just wanting to see them go to someone who will use them... so I'm asking the buyer to cover the shipping cost only. Please only respond if you have a true need for them and you're not just going to turn around and try to sell them. Happy to break them up if you're only looking for (1)... just let me know. Shipping from USA Zip Code 46202 via USPS if you'
  14. Hi everyone, I am a local retailer and a client of mine ordered a custom set of Bauer Vapor 2X Pro less than one month ago and he came back to me today because his pads are starting to discolor already. When he received his set, the pads, blocker and glove were all the same red, now one pad is more red than the other and the gloves are more red than both pads. I took some pictures to send to Bauer, but it's not as apparent in the photos as in person. Anyone knows exactly why or has this happened to anyone else?? Thanks

  16. So I picked up a couple of the magnetic buckles on the SLR RRC strap and have 2 projects in mind for them. The first was to use them on my SLR chesty for quick attach/release, but I think that I sweat too much and those buckles might see a lot of moisture, don't want them to rust out without careful attention. The other idea I had was this one. I wasn't able to get the actual RRC strap itself as well, so I Wil have to fashion my own or custom order those. I'm ok with that, my real problem is how to attach the straps to the pads. I wish I had a better look at the set Jimmy Howard ha
  17. With the recent passing of one of my pro stock NXGs (lasted ~6 months w/ 3 skates a week) I'm down to two NXGs and one 2S Pro. The NXGs as I said are a pro stock w/ a paddle height of 27.5" (actual measure is just north of that at 27.75") and the 2S Pro is a 25" (actual measure 27.125") so a slight variation between the two. Purely for messing around I started using the 2S Pro again and while the NXG is great... the 2S Pro is so damn light I find myself being FAR more active with my stick (and maybe that 5/8" of length makes it feel more maneuverable)... and now has me planning for when the ne
  18. Here's Part 2 of the S190 vs 1S durability comparison, which covers the blockers and gloves. As before, many of the variables were similar in terms of usage of the gear: -- S190 glove and blocker were used for about 250 ice sessions from July 2017 to July 2018 -- 1S glove and blocker were used for about 250 ice sessions from July 2018 to July 2019 (gear purchased at 40% discount from list price in summer of 2018) -- Shooters were mostly 14 to 17-year-olds Some key differences: -- S190 glove and blocker are INT, while 1S glove and blocker are SR -- 1S glove a

  20. Yes- I am selling this set of gloves. I used them a total of 2-5 times MAX after pressing this set into service. I love them, but need to move these in favour of other things. It just never saw enough use, but this set is too nice to display behind my bar! The lowdown: The glove started life as a gently used Vaughn V-lite Pro. The glove was in such excellent shape, but was not in a colourway I wanted. It could have been pressed into service immediately. I cleaned her up, and then sent her off to Protective Athletic Wear for Sara’s most capable hands to rework and refurb. Very little did

  22. Basic video on tools I use for customizing, taping and cutting my goalie sticks. I used to never really cut down my shafts now I love having a short shaft having used Curtis McElhinney's used Bauer 1S stick he used with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
  23. Quick recap. I asked around to find a shop that would still be able to do a custom skate order with my previous specs. No scans needed, didn't want to wait until sometime in 2019 and possibly pay a few hundred dollars more. The big stores basically just said no custom until scans in 2019, but the Bauer website live chat "fit expert" confirmed any retailer still has the option to submit an order the old way. Went to a local shop that works with all the local minor league and university teams, talked to the owner about the things I wanted changed from my old specs, he had a couple of sugge
  24. I was wondering if anyone on here has experience with verified cat eye masks, or even just cat eye mask in general. Was considering buying this one: https://goalieparts.com/products/bauer-profile-certified-cat-eye.html Is it worth it? What are all of the benefits of cat eye?
  25. I picked up some used all white Bauer 1X's on SidelineSwap the other day, and am hoping to spice them up a bit using Padskinz or Pad Wrap (haven't picked which one). I've done some research on tips/techniques for applying the skin to pads, and it looks like the general rule of thumb that you should apply the wrap along a stitched seam for a secured seal. Since 1X's don't have any stitching, I was wondering if anyone has had experience applying a skin/wrap to them, and if so if there are any tips. Also, I know that Mike McKenna used a wrap on his 2S's for about a week after he was tra
