What's Your Current Gear?
 
We don't have a thread on this, and come on what's more important than your gear :laugh:

Thought it'd be fun to have a thread we can bump if we update our stuff, or to talk about new gear.

Right now I'm using:

Helmet - M11 w/ Bauer 9900 cage
Shoulders - Reebok 4k
Elbows - Reebok 7k Pro
Gloves - Warrior Koncept
Pants - Tackla 9000
Shins - Reebok 6k
Skates - Graf G35

Sticks:

Warrior Dynasty Draper 70 flex
TPS Response R2 Nash 65 flex


Picked up a few new things over the weekend for summer league:

Sherwood 9950 shoulders for the hot rinks (summer league is less intense)
Warrior jock (Nut Hut?) was on clearance, needed a new one
CCM U+06 65 flex (feels like 85) with the Ovi Pro curve (just disgusting) :laugh:

I use the U+06 intermediate sticks too but I prefer my Bauer X:Lites. The red stick is a Tron LE and the white one is some Christian wooden stick I use for ball hockey.

Just picked these bad boys up.

The cheap stuff that I like anyways:

Bought it off a guy who had a batch made through PSHG. It's a cool curve, really long blade, low lie, crazy rocker, bit of a heel curve, decently open (similar to a Sakic), pretty significant toe kink. By far the best curve I've used for stickhandling (especially any toe-drag type moves), terrific for saucer passes, but so far my shot it is a bit worse than with a Drury or Sakic. The set up is also a bit blade heavy, had to make a weighted end plug for it, and even then the balance is just "meh."

Does it have that super long hosel like Kovalev's did?

Messing with the Ovi Pro, and being a Sakic user for a year now, I'm loving how the rockered lie is even lower than Sakic, and that toe curve does help grab the puck/ball while stickhandling. But I don't like how the curve is that big or open.

I've been eyeing the Versteeg Pro on the Warrior site. That might be pretty sweet.

Most of this stuff has been purchased in the last 6 months.

Helmet - Easton E700 with HS22 visor
Shoulders - Bauer Supreme One80
Elbows - Warrior Projekt
Gloves - Eagle X70

I want to get Franchises to replace the Eagle gloves, but the Eagles are really nice and Franchises are absurdly expensive.

The hosel is a pretty standard length for a non-tapered blade. Perron doesn't actually use a shaft/blade, he uses a 1-piece AFAIK, the blade I have is just a standard blade that's been cloned to have Perron's pattern.

And yeah, I'd like to give the Versteeg pro a try too, that or a P92 lie 5.

SCritical 05-15-2012 08:28 PM

I love me some gear talk!

I'm using

- Bauer 2100 helmet combo

- Bauer vapor X20 shoulder pads (don't love it, thinking of upgrading)

-easton s3 elbow pads (hate them, won't stay on!)

- bauer supreme one35 shinpads

- Bauer vapor x15 gloves (when they totally fall apart as they are threatening to do, I want some a little more fitted at the wrist)

- Bauer supreme one40 pants (love them! fit so well!)

-Bauer supreme one40 skates

Sticks are Bauer vapor x15 and easton EQ30, both intermediate. I love the easton but I keep the Bauer for when I play D because it feels sturdier.
