Lots of changes this weekend as I'm trying to get out of a slump:

- Swapped my M11 for a Reebok 4k helmet. Going to see if it breathes a little better in the hot rinks.

- Swapped the waxed yellow laces for unwaxed white. Trying to even out the pressure on the foot.

- Got another pair of 13" Warrior Koncept gloves. Love mine and they are holding up great, but they are $50 on clearance and got a backup pair in all black in case I play for another team in the next couple years (and it goes with my team colors fine too).

- Added 1" to each of my sticks. Maybe get a little more sting on the shot.

- Sharpened my skates for the first time in several months...90/50 FBV (almost 1" hollow).

- Switched from black to white tape, from mid-heel to mid-toe. Also using wax.



Also eyeing down a new Warrior shaft. They are down to $80 at the LHS for an intermediate tapered which would be better than the senior tapered shaft I'm using with wood blades.
