  1. 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's start by showing both sets. First up, the older brother, the 2S Pro. So this was my first custom Bauer set, I won't dive into the lackluster custom options for colorways, I love this graphic and I am pleased of the way it turned out. I went all stock for this one, except for the intermediate fit for the blocker palm. Now my 2X Pro, which is a first again for me, being my first dark based set. So here I went with a lot of custom specs, here is the list; Square knee block, Powerlite core (single break below the knee) , vapor thin insert (stock option), offset CRS laces (yup, no bungee for me). Intermediate fit for both gloves. PADS So the pads are pretty similar all things considered, main diffrence would be the boot break. The Vapor has a thinner, flatter boot which is much softer that the Fused boot which is stock on the 2S pro. Furthermore, the pad is much thicker on the boot area in the Supreme. This makes the supreme less connected and makes it sit higher on the leg. This is one of the things that I liked at first but liked less and less as the season went on. Now the sliding surface. As you can see, both a extremely similar except that the calf piece on the vapor is rounder and features an embossed cortech ST logo. The knee block has thankfully gone away from the binding this year, even if the nylon used on the 2x seem to be of better quality. This explains why the sliding is (according to me at least) much much much better on the 2X pros. However, the thickness is the same on both models on the sliding edge, which brings me to one of the most unique design element of the vapor pad, the tapered core. As you can see above, the core of the vapor is slightly thicker on the inside edge than the outside edge. This pulled from the 1x, and is to aid rotation while keeping the strapping tight. Speaking of strapping. The tune-fit (vapor) is much softer and wraps the leg a lot more, the CRS is looser and stiffer. I'm not really picky on strapping, but the vapor is simple and comfortable, both things lacking in the supreme's CRS. The calf wraps on the vapor are longer and hug the skate much more, and have elastic joints at the bottom. On nitpick in the supremes, the strapping did not have any color option (not even white), but again, the set looked good nontheless. The leg channel in nylon on the supremes and has the quattro material from AX Suede on the knee block. On the vapor, we find the quattro in the leg channel as well. Overall, I love both pads, but the vapor suits more my playstyle, mainly because of the snuggier, tighter fit and the softer boot, while keeping the really hot rebounds. Now the catch gloves. I won't talk about the breaks, the vapor is more of a finger oriented closure (similar to a 590 but feels really close to a 580 somehow) and the supreme is more of a full-hand closure, which is a 600 in ccm language. Supreme Vapor Now that the inevitable (Thanos is inevitable) break question is addressed, let's look at best feature on both gloves; the cuff. Back in november when I saw the gear, i saw that the took insperation from the supreme for the backhand of the 2x catch glove. The cuff is now shorter and feels much more open than on the 1x ans 2s pro, but keep the flexibility that the 2s pro had with the FREE flex cuff. Supreme Vapor Now a few pictures of the gloves side by side. They present a somewhat similar shape (big pocket, smaller cuff) but they feel completely diffrent, props to bauer for that, because I always felt more comfortable with supreme type break because of their shape, but never like the feel of the break that much, it's nice to have a glove that just feels like the best of both worlds for me. (2x pro has a great closure out of the box, highly recommend the game ready ) Blockers The 2X pro blocker feels like a variant of the 2s Pro, it's the weird friend that just looks somewhat alien, but in this case, the design works and looks both futuristic and traditional. Now the vapor is much lighter, and here is why. The vapor has a tapered face, which makes it have an optimized thickness both for balance and protection. Now the sidewall is where the alien thing comes in. The vapor straight up looks weird, but it works just fine. The supreme has however the best finger protection I ever had on a blocker. I'm not worried with the vapor however. The one thing I don't like on the vapor is the stiching on the face, I prefer the seamless edge of the supreme by a landslide, but this is more of a nitpick than anything. One small diffence is that the supreme has a segmented finger protection and the vapor has traditionnal build. supreme vapor So that about wraps it up. so feel free to ask more questions on the gear. Edit: The 2S pro set was regularly cleaned (once every 6-8 ice times) using a magic eraser and a combination of slight pressure and patience.

    where to buy gear

    I am wanting to buy a set of warrior G4 pads glove and blocker, the one and only store near me doesn't carry warrior at all and any site I visit online doesn't have the color and/or the size I need. Does anyone know where I could hope to buy gear online?
  3. Isn't it the other way around? 600=baseball closure aka 60 degree, 590=75 degree and 580= roughly 90 degree?
  4. So I just recieved my Brian's opt1k gloves this week and was about to heat it when I remembered it had BOA in it. I became a little worried that the heat might damage the dials or mechanism. Does anyone know if I am able to still heat it to break it in. The proccess is spraying the outside with water, keeping it closed with a string or any other such item, then heating it in a skate oven for 5 min, then playing with the glove until it cools.
  5. i have just got a new glove and am wondering how to break it in fast. alot of people talk about the keeps technique but i am worried that will destroy the protectiveness of my glove. any other thoughts or ideas?
  6. I had sent out my gear to Dennis over at FactoryMAD to get some minor modifications and repairs. I wasn't looking to do his full glove mod (his internals and floating T etc.) just replace some binding and lacing which had been worn down. To my surprise I had an email from him this morning advising the thumb mold was shattered and he recommended replacing. Of course I said "Yes please do." as I trust his professional opinion, but wondered what "shattered" looked like. Without me even asking for a picture he snapped the image below and passed it along as an FYI... and he wasn't misusing the word... it is shattered. ? Per Dennis it's not all that uncommon amongst CCM/Koho/Reebok gloves. Gloves which I have worn almost exclusively throughout my life. To be honest, I couldn't tell you that I felt it play or feel any differently compared to its twin which I've only worn a handful of times. I also don't recall a particularly massive shot that would have caused it (nor do I want to give any particular shooter credit as it will only go straight to their neanderthal brain.) Worth noting that there is a good amount of padding behind the mold, so I wouldn't say it's as much of a safety concern as a bent cage, but eye opening nonetheless. I wonder how many other gloves I've used over the years have had a similar situation and I just never realized... Anyone else have a similar experience you could elaborate on? Is it more of a safety concern than I'm giving it credit for?
  7. Selling slightly used Bauer 1S glove and blocker. All white. Used once a week for two months. $400 usd. Shipping from North Dakota. Prefer to ship to US only.
  8. Here is my review of the Brian's Optik Pro Glove vs. Bauer S170 Glove. This video is about Brian's Optik Pro Goalie Glove vs. Bauer S170 Glove. I’ve used the Bauer S170 for 9 months and purchased this upgraded Optik glove this summer. In the couple skates I’ve had with the Optik glove it is a fantastic goalie glove. The double T with lace in the pocket just eats up pucks and they don’t pop out. The amount of rebounds I’ve been able to minimize is a game changer. I’ve had teammates already comment that my glove hand is better. Brian’s has also done an amazing job breaking in this glove. It closes really great for a game ready palm. The boa system for tightening the glove works so well and the clam shell opening to air out the glove is easy to open and gain access to the boa set up quickly. Bauer S170: This glove is a good deal for the price coming in at a fraction of the cost compared to the Optik. So if you are on a budget then this glove should work fine. If you are really particular and performance is paramount then this glove is not for you. Gaps for this glove, break-in time, ability for puck to stick in the basket, palm protection for high level shots, finally the Velcro and strapping is not nearly at the level of a pro Optik. In summary, hard to compare these goalie gloves as they are in different classes but I hope this helpfully highlights the differences between an entry level vs. pro glove. If you have $$$$ and are focused on performance go with a pro glove like the Brian’s Optik. If you are on a tight budget, like to upgrade regularly then go with this Bauer.
  9. Hey guys, After 6 ice sessions here is my review on the Factory Mad pads, glove, and blocker. Dennis at Factory Mad was a pleasure to deal with. He answered all my questions that I had about his equipment that he makes. The reason I made the decision to go with Factory Mad was his demo program. Back in July I demoed his Ultra light pads, glove, and blocker. So on my equipment I wanted a simple design. I wanted vertical stitching on the pads, glove, and blocker. Dennis did a fabulous job on pads and gloves. Glove It’s by far one of my favorite gloves to use. I also like the one piece glove design. I had Dennis put the vertical stitching on the cuff part. A+ job! Love the floating T with skate lace! Glove is like a vacuum to pucks and is very easy to close too. Glove comes with removable palm protection for stingers. Also the wrist strap is removable too. Both are secured with Velcro. When I was demoing his glove I had some concerns about the protection. I took some shots and I did get some stingers. So I was a little worried. With my new glove the protection is top notch. No stingers. The demo glove has seen a lot of action, so that’s probably why I got some stingers. Blocker The blocker that Dennis makes is great. Lots of mobility, protection, and is stable on your hand. His blocker doesn’t have a big and bulky side board. Love the simple design. More like old school blocker to me which I love. Had Dennis put the vertical stitching on the whole face. Once again his work great! Pads The pads are based off the new ultra lite one piece landing. Size 34”+1. His pads are not core foam pad, he has a layered foam system which offers a traditional feel pad. Torsion flex. I did ask Dennis for a couple things on the pad. I liked the demo pads with the Velcro strapping system. The Velcro strapping reminds me of my old G2. I have 1 Velcro strap to go behind the knee, 3 for shin. The boot has the traditional leather strap for the skate . The Velcro strapping system is great because the pad is very responsive to your moves. Also the one piece landing gives you a great seal on the ice when in the butterfly. The pad also slides just as well as my old G2. He also has a foam wedge which has really great for support and it’s very comfortable when in the butterfly. Having this puts less stress on your leg and knees. I had Dennis make a bungee toe strap similar to monster straps. On the demo pads he have skate lace sliding toe bridge. I didn’t like it. With the bungee toe bridge it puts less strain on ankles. The boot I really like what Dennis has done. The boot area is super flexible and tapered toe. Helps get you in a wider stance, and aids in pushing off making post to post saves. On the under side of the boot area, there is an small area where your skate cap is snug and conforms near the toe area. This also helps to keep the pads centered. On the face of the pad I went with jenpro face so I could have the vertical stitching. The outside gusset of the pad I did go cordura to reduce some weight. Overall the pads great. Good mobility, slide well, and are very comfortable. Rebounds come off the pads softer than my old G2. The one piece landing is stiff, which makes the pad less flexible in the middle of the pad. Thigh rise is flexible. I don’t mind the stiffness in the pad, because my G2 are just as stiff. The pad is a little heavier but I don’t mind. Any questions let me know. Thanks Ron

  13. The idea of a leather buckle wrist strap in my trapper has always intrigued me to say the least, I like my trapper to be lose...other than the wrist, the wrist have to synched down. the traditional nylon wrist strapping system that is found in almost (Brian’s optic is the only outlier I know of) every stock trapper (I’m 16 and in no financial shape to be buying a custom glove just for a leather strap) doesn’t cut it, I find myself constantly ripping on the strap throughout the game trying to get it tight. Basically I was wondering if anyone has done this to their trapper, specifically a Vaughn but any input will help. I think it will be relatively strait forward if I keep a length of the nylon strap that is already sewn into the trapper as a point to attach the leather strap and buckle to. I will add pics later if my thoughts didn’t come out the way I thought them up? I am planning on doing this mod, I’ll have to make a trip to pro hockey life to buy a strap and buckle and then I’ll do it, and of course I’ll post pics and say what I think of it??I just wanted to ask if anyone has had any experience trying this out in the past. Thanks
  14. Hello, I'm looking for a T5500. I'm full right and they're hard to come by. Goalie Monkey and Total Hockey don't have any in stock. Anyone have a suggestion on where to find one without going custom? Thanks
