Real Life Hockey/Equipment/Gear Thread
Let's face it, most of the people posting here are from/have lived in Minnesota where everyone and their plays some sort of hockey. Go ahead and brag about it here.
-Skates: Bauer Vapor VIII skates
-Sticks: CCM Vector V06 with a Thornton blade (85 flex), Easton Z Bubble shaft with a CCM Thornton blade (100 flex), Christian Bros. wood stick (85 flex)
-Gloves: black and red (Nike)Bauer One55 15"
-Helmet: white Bauer 5500 with a 5500 cage when needed
-Shoulder Pads: Koho 4460 (light but protective enough)
-Elbow Pads: old-school Kohos (same rationale as above)
-Breezers: Black CCM Vector V02
-Shin Guards: Bauer 5500
Lots of old gear (5+ years ago). Used Sherwood sticks forever, bought a Synergy, and proceeded to break it in half in a week. CCM Vector sticks and old Bauer skates. Everything else is really just pieced together (helmet and gloves were old high school gear).
Absolutely nothing flashy (just like my game).
I did the same thing with a Synergy, which is pretty sad given how the sticks were marketed.
Skates: 4 year old Graf 727's. They're actually Richard Park's old pair (long story, I was just suprised he had that big of feet. :laugh:)
Gloves: All black Eagle PPF's
Stick: Warrior Dolomite Spyne
Bucket: Black CCM, like the one Koivu where's.
Shin & elbow pads: Jofa. Always Jofa.
All I do now is play in a few beer leagues so I don't wear pants, nor do I need shoulder pads.
Stick: mission hossa, need a new stick, its half way broken.... was deflecting shots and cracked it on the inside gonna get a warrior (kovalchuk) this summer
Skates: Vapor XIII
Shins : ****** easton

Helmet - Bauer 5500 w/ 9500 cage
Shoulders - Bauer Vapor XXV
Elbows - Bauer One55
Gloves - Bauer One75

Shins - Bauer One90
Skates - Graf G35

Played AHA the last few years, D1/C2, playing again this winter. I'm pretty mediocre but can shoot fairly well, although compared to how bad I was when I quit playing as a kid I've come a long way.
I wish I still did AHA - that was a fun league and a great way to network.
Anyone want to try getting an hfboards mn skate together? I'd probably show up, depending on where it is. 2 young kids has really cut into my ice time though.
