I thought of the idea to rank the current stock graphics because who doesn't love arguing over rankings more the hockey community online! (You might be a fake fan if you haven't told someone their opinion sucked on the NHL top 50 player ranks or EA's player rankings) So here they are! Please yell at me. 10. The Axis 2 might be the worst pad design I have ever seen. IMO, no further explanation needed. 9. Vaughn will just keep putting lines on Slr pads and call it a graphic. 8. Logan is reacting to the number of color zones on the Machs. 7. These are like the eflex 3 design made larger. And with more confusing broken up color zones. Make it go on the outer roll this time! No one else does that!... 6. Sure these look great. But I mean this set specifically. Just another pad with vertical stripes, and wait, no way! Does that design continue onto the outer rollNever seen that before… 5. The previous design made to look like a decepticon instead of a good guy. More straight lines makes it angrier! 4. I know. Hot take. These actually look good with some color on them. Too bad the Leafs only have one. Just like how many rounds they play in in the playoffs. Maybe Campbell can add a second color this year! 3. Maybe it’s just this design here but I think these look great. Almost every design on these looks good. I wonder what the relevance of 12.2 is. Maybe the number of satisfied non-pro customers they had last year? Or the number of years it takes to get a set? 2. These are pretty cool. They look good in red and white. Because nobody who wears them on any other team is this creative. But seriously, these look great no matter how you pick the color zones. 1. Brians owns stock graphics. These are like the cool kid in middle school everyone tries to be like. Once in a while someone is successful but most people end up missing the mark. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad looking set of these. So how did I do? Terrible? Probably. And yes, Warrior was not worth mentioning to me. Having 75 color zones doesn't work because half of them are the size of a puck mark.
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 pretty snug width and depth wise overall, and i had much much more ankle depth which felt great. but i have a few questions regarding the Trues. 1. since they are pro stock, would i still have a warranty on them? they are brand new never used. only reason im asking is because ive heard a mix of good and bad reviews with the durability. 2. Will they form well to my feet if they were built for someone else? 3. What thickness is the step steel on the 2-piece holders? 4. Is the maintenance as important as im reading? ie. taking the footbeds out after every skate, putting them infront of a fan, etc. 5. when baking them, how many times should i bake them? i baked my 2spros 3 different times to get them feeling somewhat okay. 6. does anyone else have any experience with pro stock true skates? if so, how have they been? i have tried ccm skates, and my foot just does not fit in those, at all, even after baking them, i used to wear Grafs and those were so comfy, i have not tried vapor skates, but id imagine id have a similar issue with those as im having with my 2spros. id also rather not drop a grand on vapor skates if i can get these trues for half the price, and they end up fitting me better anyways. Edit*: doing some digging, I have also found that Goaliemonkey.com sells true pro stock skates for about 700$ U.S, reading the reviews off of that, it seems like the skates bake well to other peoples feet, which I guess would make sense considering the way the skate is built. That does bring me some sanity lol. I had also called my local store about warranties, and got some good news. “ the boots have a 90 day warranty, the holders and steel have a 1 year warranty” which is good since I’ve read the rivets like to come loose on these skates! thanks for the read! any help/guidance would be awesome!!
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 to change. I've never had any huge issues with Bauer skates besides some ankle pain and an awkward fit. The tech on the 2xPro's looks pretty sick and seems like a great skate I'm just thinking the custom boot from True is more up my alley. If I go with True, I was thinking I'd go with the Vertex holder as it would give me some familiarity to a Bauer skate. If anyone can tell me about their experience with True's or 2xPro's I'd highly appreciate it. Also if you had True's please touch on the durability and the holders.
I'm getting a pair of True Two-Piece skates and I'm not sure whether to go with the normal Step Holder with Step Steel or a Vertexx Holder with LS 5G blades. I've been in Bauer x900's for 3 years now and I feel like the Vertexx holder will give me more familiarity. However, the guy who I'm ordering through told me that the Step Steel blades are such higher quality that most customers opt for that instead of the Vertexx. I'd love to hear others experiences with the Step holder and blades or the Vertexx holder and LS 5G blades.
