  1. So I just got my new Eflex 4s in and was able to use them the night they came in so I figured I would throw up a quick initial thoughts post so I can do a full review after some more ice time. I ordered these through Goalie Monkey on April 8th and they took exactly 10 weeks to show up at my door. I don't think I would go with them again for a custom order but to their credit everything came in the correct specs and colors. Pads In the past I have worn 34 whenever I was using a Lefevre product but on these I decided to go with a 33+2 and I am glad I did. I was falling off low in my Vaughn's and with these I hit dead center on the stack and never slipped off either way. I went with single internal/single external with the deep soft boot. I wish you could do straight angle with the Eflex instead of precurved but these aren't too bad and I like the look of a single external break the best. The strapping is the stock elastic with the tight leg channel. I did get the removable outer flap and the behind the ankle removable boot strap just so I had the options just in case. These took me about 20 mins on the ice to get fully comfortable in but they are much closer to what I like compared to the Vaughn PVE's I was in. They are super easy to move in and seal to the ice amazingly and the rebounds were closer to what I wanted compared to the PVEs. Can't comment on the speedskin as the ice was awfully sloppy as it was humid out but it was still easier to move than it was in the Vaughns. Glove Glove is a 590 break with game ready palm. Seriously considered going back to the 580 since it seems everyone is jumping back on that train and I used one back in high school but I recall having issues shooting with that break and I didn't want to hate something that cost as much as this. Went with the stock double t with skate lace and the standard wrist strap. Also did the intermediate insides on this one and I really like the snug feel of it over my Eflex 3. Break in was okay but it still needs some work as I used it mainly just to block that first night but it will break in and be fine like every 590 I've used prior. I did like that they moved the hand straps on the inside to much more comfortable positions so you can really tighten it without causing discomfort. Blocker On the blocker I went with the straight finger protection which I personally feel is the best option they have as it protects well and doesn't get in the way like the curved used to for me. If I could do it again I would go with the half cuff instead of the full as I really don't feel like you can get it open enough. Otherwise the blocker is great and feels a good bit lighter than the Premier 1 I have been using. I also got it with binding since I think blockers look the best with binding.
  2. Someone who can fit into these PLEASE BUY THEM!!! I would happily let my wife yell at me for quite some time for blowing money on these needlessly but I'm just too short to have them fit.

    2 Piece Glove

    I’ve been using the CCM premier 2 one piece glove and i’m wondering if there’s any major differences or benefits to switching to a 2 piece glove
  5. Has anyone picked up a pair of these CCM Pro Return 13A NHL Spec Pants from Goalie Monkey? I've been looking for a new pair for a while now and the price on these isn't bad. I've only really worn Vaughn (currently V5s) so any feedback on them would be greatly appreciated. https://www.goaliemonkey.com/equipment/pants/sr-goalie-pants/ccm-goalie-pants-13a-pro-return.html From Goalie Monkey: Details Brand new for the 2017-2018 NHL season, we have gotten our hands on the newest spec CCM Pro Return NHL Spec Senior Goalie Pants! These pants are the exclusive 13A model which is built off of several different styles of pant to offer the highest level of protection. The base of the pant is most similar to the Reebok 11K pant which features a separate upper attachment from the lower half. The biggest change in NHL spec pants is the rounded thighs on the bottom half which sit closer to the goaltenders body. Moving to the top of the pant, the hip padding is very similar to the older CCM CL Pro pant mixed with designs from the CCM 12A pro stock pant. That front hip padding has an extra strategic cut to allow for more flexibility, while being sewn down in more places so the padding does not fold up and expose the thigh. The second biggest change in NHL spec pants is the full elastic front which does not allow goalies to wear their pants incredibly baggy. This full elastic front allows for more uniformity and a tighter fit on the body. Last, the sizing of the waist was changed to make the sizing of goalie pants more specific to the individual goaltender, so please check the size chart before purchasing. These pants are made to NHL and AHL specifications ALL Pro Return gear is made to the Pro's specification and may have been altered or have slight cosmetic blemishes Some pants may have the lacing in front instead of full elastic Some pants may also have “KW” signature or a player specific name on the inside No Warranty
  6. Isn't it the other way around? 600=baseball closure aka 60 degree, 590=75 degree and 580= roughly 90 degree?
  7. While I continue to skate during the summer, the high level skate takes a break, so I have some time to modify equipment properly. One item I'd like to get everyone's input on is getting more POP off my blocker, like the Bauer 1s/2s or Vaughn SLR. I'm using Koho 589 Vintage Pro which has seen ~3 years of service so I need to replace the blocker board anyway and have some small repairs made on the palm gusset. But any suggestions on... Blocker Board Materials (carbon sheets vs. standard plastic) Higher density foams (perhaps layers as yes > density also means >weight) Sourcing options for materials I'm not opposed to sending this work off to say @Beccaraptor at PAW so if i even wanted to thin out blocker face as a whole it could be done. Trying to build a better blocker is all. Help me brainstorm... and if you have a 1s or any other block you feel has good POP and you don't mind opening it up to show off send some pics. The IG post below from GoalieCoaches got me thinking about this...
  8. I was poking around and hadn't seen much on Padded Shirts. I'm currently wearing a Shock Doctor 573. It's been fine, had a shot or two get me in the clavicle, but the argument could easily be made that if I was in a better position I wouldn't have been exposed. Anyway, while I know I could run out and get a good Maltese Reiter Spec Combo for a couple hundred $, I've also thought maybe it's time for a new shirt. CCM has a pretty robust one out there, as does Verbero. Wondering what everyone is wearing and your thoughts as I look to buy a new one...

  12. First let me start off by saying that I'm a die-hard CCM guy. I've tried lots of different brands (Vaughn/Bauer/Brians) and in my opinion, CCM is the best. Now that I have that out of the way, I'll begin with how I started off the year. So I first decided to invest in the Carey Price limited Extreme Flex 3's that were released in September. I bought them in January andstarted using them. The strapping setup was awesome, it was incredibly easy to power push, and the 25% weight reduction from the Eflex 2's was a very pleasant surprise. For the last 6-7 months, I've been skating for approximately 6-7 days a week and conditioning with Maria Mountain goalie training pro (which I highly recommend if you aren't currently doing herprogram . It's amazing). Anyway, I expected the Price pads to last me about 1-2 seasons thinking "if they're made for 'Price' they'd better last me a while." And of course, "With our Carey Price Limited Edition Extreme Flex 3 Setup, you can suit up in the exact same gear that Price skates onto the ice with every single game." "It's quality," they said. "It'll last for about 1-2 seasons," they said. Well, as awesome as the pads were, and as well asthey slid, the weave material began to break down. It started in the boot, and then it wore down at the top of the thigh rise, and then it just started to straight up deteriorate. Plus, once the weave is wet, and unless it gets to dryout for awhile The blocker towards the thumb began to break off. Literally, BREAK off, and the glove began to lose some protection in the thumb. I really liked the price pads. I began to do some more research on all three materials that ccm uses on their lines of pads. Weave (emboss), Jenpro, and their hailed speedskin. Since I already experienced the side-effects of weave, I decided to research speedskin first. A lot of reasons why you would see pro returns in jenpro (take Bobrovsky for example) is that the speedskin slides TOO much. You may disagree with this if you're5'7", 145 pounds. But when you're 6'2" 190 like Bob, you begin to see a difference. So I decided to move back to the tried-and-true jenpro that I've always used and I bought Michael Leighton's Extreme Flex III's from this past season. I just used them today for the first time and they are honestly amazing. This review was meant to warn anyone who is looking to order weave on their custom pads. It is not durable at all, and the reason why players like Carey Price, Mike Smith, and Dustin Tokarski continue to use weave material is because they get pads once a month. I don't know about most of you, but that isn't an option for me yet and I have to invest in what lasts which, in my opinion, is jenpro.
  13. We took some nice close up shots of these twigs that we got into our store last week. They are pretty sleek. Let me know if there's any shots I can improve on.

  15. In honor of the Premier 2 customizer launch we put together a quick video of what we thought of the setup.
  16. Tried it, just not for me. Used for about 8 roller games. The leather on the right arm attachment was fraying so I stitched it back on, that’s the only wear. I traded my Passau for this, ended up getting the Passau back and now have no need for this unit. $350 Usd, PayPal, buyer pays shipping.
  17. Hey Guys! So I must apologize for being so late to the party. Goal Net has done an awesome job getting a nice forum going where we can focus on the gear! I know most of us are absolute junkies and drool over gear. I am gonna try and share as many cool things, custom orders etc as we get them. We do try to keep our posts up to date on Instagram and Facebook as well. Unfortunately though since there is only 3 of us who work here on a full time basis and usually only have 2-3 of us in the store at any given time and we all wear many hats and do various things. That being said I cannot dedicate as much time as I would like to certain things, this being one of them but I will try! Should anyone ever need to get in touch with me, TGC Rance on Facebook and my email is rance@thegoaliecrease.com -Rance

    Durability/Value

    I'm looking to update my very outdated setup and I'm wondering what would be the best gear for the best value, since lots of last year's stock is on sale. I've checked out most of the pro stock and take to the Brian's G Netik pretty well. The CCM eFlex IIs feel quite cumbersome in comparison, but replicate the feel of my 9Ks. Vaughn SLR pros felt pretty good too despite being a hybrid goaltender and preferring pads with a bit more flexibility (34 +2). Questions for anyone who's owned this gear or any of last year's pro stock (subzero, premier, etc): How has your gear held up overtime? Brian's specific: How has the elastic held up? Any problems with your gear or mods you've had to make? What would you recommend?
  19. Hi Guys, I've got a lot of questions for you. I'm a semipro goalie and I play in Hungarians third league. First: I want to change my old Reactor skates to a newer one. I get a pair of 1S skates for a trial period and I really love them, but it costs too much for me. At the local hockey shop, I looked for a S170 skates, which has the same Vertexxx edge bladeholder, but it cost much less than the 1S. What's the differencies between the skates? Second: Now I use CCM PRO twigs, but I think, it's time to change to Bauer Supreme line. 2 weeks ago, I can hold in my hands a 1S sticks and I get fall in love with it super light weights, but its same with the skates, the stick price is too much for me. What's the difference between 1s and S170/S190 twigs? Third: I use at this moment CCM Eflex 2 leg pads. How can Carey Price and some other goalies slide with his pads so fast? Somewhere, I read about it, they uses Ski wax to get a perfect surface on their pads. Is it true? Thanks for your answers! Peter
  20. Listing these up for my brother. 34+2 CCM Eflex 1s I'd say they have seen somewhere between moderate to heavy use. Some wear at the knee wing, wedge, and inside boot panel, skate cut on the inside nylon of the left pad thigh rise. Elastic pieces are a little worn, but easy fix. Asking $200 + ship OBO
  21. Second time in 2 weeks I've had to replace the plastic side release buckle on my Premier Chest/Arm. The first break happened a while ago and I just taped it up... but I slapped a new one on last week and notice last evening must have been shattered at my Tuesday night skate. I can't say I felt either happen... but sorta strange that it has happened to the same one twice now. Pics below of the most recent break... and I'll likely re-engineer the closure to something less prone to failure. Anyone else have a similar experience with their C/A over the years? What I saw when I went to put it on last night.. luckily there is secondary strapping that doesn't allow a broken buckle to make every too loose on the back plate... Shattered female end of the buckle... Foresight told me to slap some velcro on this strapping when i had to cut it open last time to remove the female end... New buckle... Back to a functioning buckle (for a little while anyway)... Another shot of the shattered buckle...
  22. I'm not quite sure when it happened but it probably started out innocently enough, worn out stock foot bed or maybe even just sore feet. I heard about these great inserts and wanted to try them, I mean what's the harm in that right? I could always go back to OEM whenever I wanted. But the reality is I can't. My name is @BadAngle41... and I Superfeet. Grafs for years, then a pair of Tacks, back to Grafs, now in a Bauer. No matter what the brand I can't help myself... I Superfeet. Maybe it's been so long that I can't explain what they do, but rather what stock ones don't do. I tried using the OEM foot bed from my S190s and I felt totally off. Complete lack of cushioning on the balls of my feet, heel felt like it was sliding around, and just generally off balance.The cushion on Superfeet (Yellow), very comfortable at throughout the foot. The heel cup keeps my heel in place, a bit raised to move me slightly more onto my toes, and just a more connected feel to the ice. Who else uses non-OEM foot beds in their skates? If so, what brand and why?
  23. Right before my kids were born I ordered a custom set of 33 +2 CCM Retroflex Pros and matching Koho 580 glove and blocker. I love the set, but like most on this site, always tinkering to get the pads to feel just right. I came across the Cody Porter mod and it made total sense. After a little searching I found @Beccaraptor (Sara at PAW) who helped me create the additional strapping I needed to complete the modification. Everything Velcros in, allowing me to adjust to find the sweet spot, yet holds strong enough to stay in place. Below are pics to help illustrate the transformation...
  24. DISCLAIMER: I do not work for, or will promote one company's product over another. This is solely my review based on my experiences. Anyone and everyone is allowed to both agree and/or disagree with what I have to say. This review is quite overdue. Better late than never, though, right? "But, what are you reviewing?" Let's set up some context: Recently, CCM released their new line for 2017, their third installment of their Extreme Flex series. CCM's basic mantra in their 2nd, and now 3rd gen of Extreme Flex lines has been fairly simple: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The EFlex 2 saw few improvements and upgrades from the original line. However, the 3rd gen offers a few new changes to the pad, including the material which makes up the "skin" of the pad, which CCM has appropriately named "Speedskin". The new line has been out for a few months, so I assume a large majority of the community here has had a chance to at least see the pads in person. The skin has an almost nylon feel to it, as the goal of the skin is to reduce friction between the pad and the ice, allowing it to slide easier. Fellow contributor @Hills just did a great in-depth review of the pads. If you haven't checked it out, I would recommend you do so. *A quick side note; the CCM Premiers can be custom-ordered with Speedskin now through their customizer, so it is available on both models. "Get to the point." Sit tight. Not so recently, Bauer released their Supreme 1S OD1N line, which was a complete 180 from traditional goal pad construction, offering state-of-the-art, never-before-seen technology in a goal pad. Numerous goalies made the switch from "traditional" pads to the 1S line, considering the vast amount of hype surrounding the pad when it was first released. What makes the 1S pad so special? Specifically, Bauer's CORTech skin. I won't get into specifics about the skin, but InGoal Magazine graciously has. If you want specifics about the skin, this link is super helpful: http://magazine.ingoalmag.com/publication/index.php?i=301695&m=&l=&p=53&pre=&ver=html5#{"page":54,"issue_id":301695} And before I get people commenting saying "the CORtech skin on the front of the pad has nothing to do with them sliding", this is false. The knee landing and stabilizers are wrapped in the CORtech skin. Some goalies, including Frederik Andersen (who switched from heavy Reebok XLTs) noted how the pads slid too much when they first tried them. As a 1S user myself, I can comment and confirm that the ability to slide on these pads is truly incredible. I switched from heavy, double break, 3-year-old Vaughn V5 7800 pads to James Reimer pro-return, NXG-skinned 1S pads. That "pad"/"transition" review is in this forum thread somewhere. As I am sure we can put two and two together, this review will consist of a comparison between the CCM Eflex3's Speedskin vs. the 1S CORtech skin. I'd like to say this review has been highly anticipated, as these two companies are the only companies (as of right now) who have abandoned traditional jenpro in the skin/material construction of their current-gen pads. -- So, now for the review. It's important to refresh yourself with my disclaimer featured above before you continue reading. 1S: I've been wearing the 1S pads since August 2016. To say they slide incredibly well would be an understatement. There are two comparisons I can use to explain how the pads slide on the ice: 1) Ever played out in hockey, and have slid on your shinpads? Imagine this sliding, just for a goalie pad. They are that good. 2) Ever stepped onto really crappy ice and have been barely able to slide because the ice sucks? This doesn't exist with the 1S. Whether you are skating on NHL-calibre ice, or crappy, overly-wet creases in Southern California in July, you will still slide incredibly well. I can confidently say this because I've been exposed to both great and crappy ice, and I don't find my slideability to decrease when I play, and I play against Junior/Major Junior/NCAA calibre shooters often. The pads have had some durability issues that Bauer has actually addressed mid-production (no company has ever done this while still manufacturing a current-gen pad), and carry over the same performance properties in the Vapor 1X OD1N pad, the more flexible, tighter-fitting option from Bauer. From a performance, and strictly sliding perspective, these pads perform incredibly well. I am honestly surprised why not as many goaltenders have made the switch. I understand goalies have contracts with equipment manufacturers, but I often fathom, for example, how much quicker someone like Pekka Rinne would be in a set of 1S pads vs. his CCM Premiers. CCM: For those who know me, I am not exactly CCM's biggest fan, especially considering their common wear areas (and in my opinion, critics of 1S gear who wear CCM gear should not be allowed to critique Bauer's shot at creating something new and running into some problems along the way). The wear and tear isn't the point. I am not CCM's biggest fan. But wow. The E3s were honestly one of the lightest pads I've ever worn. For once, the pad felt a part of my leg (something I detested about any Reebok pad and even the early gen Eflex lines - they felt like separate pieces on my legs, rather than a part of my legs. My Vaughns were amazing in this category, and the 1S took some time to adjust). Moreover, the simplicity of the strapping allowed me to dial in a comfortable preference in the dressing room before my first go with them - something I could not achieve immediately with the 1S. I felt like I was wearing my old Vaughns. A softer pad that I could get a good feel with almost immediately. I was super excited to try how they slid on the ice during my ice sessions with them. When I eagerly butterflied and pushed side to side in my butterfly, however, I felt really let down. It felt like I was wearing my old Vaughns, and effortless pushes didn't accomplish much, where I barely even have to try to push in my 1S pads to achieve a considerable slide. In game situations with the E3s, and where I had to put a good amount of effort into my slides, they slid great, and even better than my Vaughns. Compared to the 1S, in my opinion, however, they don't even come close to achieving the same thing. "But, when are you ever not trying to push hard to achieve a good slide?" Fair point - but, with my 1S, I found there was an adjustment period where I could almost develop muscle memory for how much I had to push (minimal vs. just above minimal vs. considerably) to get a good slide in. I knew immediately, and developed confidence quickly in how hard I had to push and how much (little) energy I had to exert to get across the crease. With the E3s, I felt like I always had to push myself to get a good slide in, for fear that I would not make it across the crease in enough time to get square in the butterfly. This is energy consuming, and while the pad is considerably lighter, I still feel like the "sliding" aspect of the industry belongs to Bauer. "But, you only wore the E3s a handful of times compared to almost a year with the 1S". Also a fair point. They were also a tad too big for me (34+2, and I need a 33+2). Maybe my knee wasn't hitting properly and it took away from the slideability of the pads. Let's also not forget to mention durability; the speedskin may be a huge leap with respect to durability, and may fix alot of the common problems (inner knee wear, toe binding wear) associated with their brand, while Bauer still has a considerable "?" beside their OD1N line with respect to the durability. Let's see how the 1X and yet-to-be-released 2S do re: durability to make this comparison. Overall, I believe CCM has created a great product to compete with other brands, and they have a leg up on the competition (i.e. Vaughn, Brian's, Warrior), brands that have not tested a "new" material to increase slideability). However, the weight of the 1S, (and now the 1X as it uses the same skin) combined with the CORtech skin and its overall composition, for me, are superior in the sliding category compared to the Eflex 3s.
  25. So about a month ago I got a brand new pair of ccm eflex3 goalie pads and they are the absolute best pads that I have ever worn right off the bat, the speedskin is an unbelievable material for goalie pads the slide is way better than my previous eflex2 pads. The new strapping is awesome it has modern technology and weight with the traditional look that I personally love. I would definitely recommend these pads to anyone who has the money and is looking for a high quality and great performing pad.
