Thanks AIR!

I usually do not buy gloves online, but my local shop do not have the stealth line, they are loaded with EQs, but I do not really like those.

I kinda have small hands, so have a weird preference in gloves. How do the 85S compare to the Surge's fit?

bought a EQ50 stick, zetterburg curve, 100 flex and i love it. very solid stick, nice flex profile and so far has taken a beating. not sure about the weighted cap but the balance is quite good as well

Quite different. The Stealths have an odd fit. Much tighter and narrower fingers/thumb than your Surges and tighter on your knuckles. The Stealths bloom out from there to the cuff, which is where I think the problem is.

its an Itech 960 made by Wright Designs... wayyy better than crappy retail Bauer 960/961 that are being made now. fingers still crossed that it's actually one made by Jerry Wright himself but I am not getting my hopes up.

When I get the mask I am going to re-pad it with new foam and slap on a new white cat eye on it.
Nice! Im not much of a helmet nerd. Try to look at the masks in the gsbb identify thread, but Im still lost. lol.

Clean'er up and lets see what she really looks like.

I got some CCM PP9L Ref Pants the other day...

Got a size small, thinking they'd be great for my 30R Waist... Turns out they're about 8" too long/wide...

Cheers for that, you fat Yanks

Gonna try and get the new Krown 360 at some point, ideally before Christmas to replace my ageing 8K.

Thanks man, the shop has a good return policy, so if it will not fit I'll just trade for another one.

Planning on purchasing some inserts for my Reebok 12K skates. It's mainly for my right foot, of which I've been feeling some pain for about a month. Been on the right side of my right foot, about 2/3 way to my heel. Any suggestions for someone w/ flat feet?

Apparently superfeet really help with flat feet. I've been on the search for superfeet but it appears they aren't sending out inventory at the moment? Neither of my proshops have received their order in a while.

I just bought an old (new old stock) Mission Thorax wrap girdle to do the job of protecting me both one wheels and ice. I haven't worn ice pants, but I imagine they're just as substantial as some of the cheaper ones out there and can definitely do the job.

Not necessarily true. SF has nothing to do with arch levels; it's a heel support product.

It really does depend on the person.

Ive worn SuperFeet and have flat feet. its OK. Not phenomenal like many say. Pain would come and go still. But not as often as i used to when i didnt have them.

But i recently purchased Custom Graf Sidas insoles... LOVE them. MUCH Better. I believe i paid 90 for them. I think it was worth it. The few times i have skated in them so far, no pain and a good ride.. So its going well.

Actually the 85S gloves are keepers for me. I kinda like the tight fit on the hands, and the loose cuffs give some room to stickhandle. It is a bit restrictive when bending the hand back, but all my gloves got softer over time, so I am thinking it will be just perfect as soon as it's broken in.

for the first time, i'm actually gonna have to disagree with you there. superfeet's philosophy, along with many other custom orthotic companies, relates to the foot's role in body alignment. this does include proper arch support as well. you cannot have proper alignment of the feet, and therefore body, without proper arch support.

so although their products aren't designed soled for the purpose of arch support, it would incorrect to say they have nothing to do with arch levels.

(i do some work with custom orthotics)

Well reasoned. I should rephrase that first statement to say this instead:

SF Yellow is/was not designed as an arch support product (comparing where the arch structure is on the footbed compared to your own foot's arch reveals a backwards shift in the footbed's placement) but rather a heel support product with the arch structure built in not to support it solely, but to try and maintain SF's profile of one's foot in its 'optimum' position.

Snagged a lightly used pair of Jofa 7500 EPs from my local Play It Again for $30+tax. Not the craziest deal ever but it was in my size and I've always wanted to try a Jofa product.

I actually bought the S30 visor. Very nice for the $20 price tag. Only thing I didn't like was the lack of instructions. This being my first visor, I had no clue how to mount it to my S19 helmet.

Did I mention that Passau Hockey is the most amazing place for Goalies? I can't get enough of that place.

Actually I do not really like the Superfeet, the concept sounds convincing, but I guess my high arch does not make me the perfect subject to use them.

The advertized enhanced control is def not there, if anything it's gotten worse, so I purchased SIDAS 3D Gel insoles, which were designed for high arches. Here's hoping this will help me becoming even more comfortable in my skates.
