i never would have seen this coming. but with all the other hockey companies merging, this would have been inevitable.

i'm curious; if tps is merging, is the louisville brand in other sports going as well?

Is this really true. That original link didn't work for me and there is nothing else out there on the internet that I can find.

There is much more to the story that isn't being said. You won't see any XN10 sticks...

Yeah sure pull one of my favorite sticks. Why just XN10s? What about the rest of the line?

And what else is being said? You just can't put something out there like that and not elaborate on it.

Is it confirmed that they have been bought out by Sherwood (which was also just bought out?) Other links besides the one at the top of the post??

I hear you guys from ModSquad have "special" relationships with a lot of the manufacturers.....so you know something! Let's hear it!

Sure I can...LOL

Nothing is finalized, but from what I am hearing, it won't be what TPS fans/users want to hear.

At this point the bid has been accepted which means it is pretty much going to happen. All of the deal-breakers to this point have been overcome. Sher-Wood will continue to develop their high-end goalie line, while most of the composite will be TPS designed product with Sher-Wood graphics. Thats about all I can say at this point.

I don't think any of the technologies or patents will transfer over to Sher-Wood

Seems as though all the TPS stuff will continue to say TPS (kind of like Reebok and CCM). All baseball TPS will be transfered back to the american owners. My buddy said its almost done, Sher wood wasn;t the only bidder. He'll let me know more when his Dad finalizes everything.

Bad info.

The new distributor for H&B Canada is DR. TPS is dead as you knew it.

I'm assuming you know John Pagotto's son?

so did this finalize?

but are new TPS sticks still going to be branded under TPS or is it completely gone.
Will TPS still have their own division, and continue to use its prior technologies and patents

Was talking to a TPS rep today and i think i should clarify some things. TPS will live on as you know it. The 2009 gear is coming out soon (got to try out the new twiggers and they are fantastic). TPS has been bought by Sherwood. ALL TECHNOLOGY THAT HAS MADE TPS WHAT TPS IS IS STILL THERE. Really nothing has changed except you can switch Louisville for Sherwood. Gear is dirty!

I have always been a TPS guy, i mean literally always (gloves and sticks). I was worried the same as alot of you. You now longer need to worry TPS is still TPS.

That's good to know. I'm a fan of the TPS products I've used, namely the sticks and gloves. I'm also pretty big on Sherwood products, so the two working together can be a good thing. Good to know I can still pick up my next set of gloves from TPS though.

Yeah, new plan after the initial plan was released. This news broke just before the show in Vegas.

I've tried asking this question multiple, multiple times, and no one even seems to have the slightest idea. I'm looking to get a hold of the TPS R10 gear, "right now just the glove" I want to be able to try the gear on before I make the purchase. Perani's doesn't have the gear there in stock and basically has no clue when they will be getting any R10 goalie gear. So does anyone know where i can try on any R10 gear? "Looking to customize them though."-thanks

National Sports in Hamilton, right across from Limeridge, is selling R8's for 249! Even R6's are like 180. Friggin crazy. I picked up an R10 on wed from SFS in Burlington for 259.

They even had this Nash reg R1, chrome edition for 100 bucks! a friggin R1!

Anyways, still going to be about two maybe three months for the new twigs to come out so dont see the prices dropping for abit.

My R8 glove says "made in Thailand". I guess Canada is out of it.

I dont think the gloves or any of the protective eq was ever made in Canada. Not at home so i cant check my old gloves. The woodies, R8 and R10 are though.
