Very cool

Congrats

I just got one of those rocket sport equipment dryer trees....and I'm very happy. Works great, though I'm sure I could build one myself with a bit of elbow grease, but I'm lazy.

Also picked up a Mako M5 off ebay for very very cheap, and it's a very nice stick. I was concerned about it being the "lower end" Mako but feels nice compared to the RBK sickick iii that I use.

just got a visor from a site called tron hockey. doesn't fog and is scratch resistant. with a promo code it was like 15 bucks and works great. no need to drop 50+ on a oakley or bauer visor.

Yeah they look like a solid company. I've had issues with Total Hockey employees as major douches and have no idea what they're talking about sometimes.

If you're right they are a keeper.
The customer service is great from HM as far as my experiences.

They call me to my middle east mobile number when theres issue and are always helpful to resolve them.

Issues Ive had is something out of stock and some items they dont ship to the middle east. Nothing major and nothing their fault.

Matrix blocker is lighter and great for paddle down.
nice buy. good call on the blocker too

Just a heads up that some (all?) Sports Mart locations in Canada are closing as of March 31. They have everything in the store at 40% off the last ticketed price.

Today I picked up (rough prices):

- Stick - Easton EQ30 w/ Hall curve for $25 (orig. $100)
- Gloves - Sherwood T90 Pros for $50
- Helmet - Bauer 7500 w/ cage for $75
- Visor - Bauer X100 for $50
- Bag - Easton EQ40 for $30

Plus some odds and ends (tape, new jock shorts, a few pucks, etc).

Sport Mart doesn't carry much high end stuff, but the stuff I picked up fits squarely in the intermediate range - for damn near half off (or more in some cases)

Sport Chek is a Canadian Tire property, right?

I guess they want streamline, let the CT carry the low- to mid- level equipment, and higher end stuff at Sport Chek?

Since my Easton 85S glove friggin died on me in less than 2 months (I got a huge hole in the palm of my top hand), I went for some shopping again.

Found this deal on those Warrior Bonafide X SE gloves, and bought one in the Endmonton colors, cause it matches good with our team's uniform. Also got the Tampa Bay away socks from Reebok, and the 9K padded shirt for my summer roller league.

Yay, I am addicted.

Yesterday i ordered:

CCM U+ Crazy Light 13" gloves black.

Easton Stealth S19 Chest protector.

Oakley Pro Cut visor.

Can't wait to see if there's a difference between my Bauer One75 chest protector and the Easton. I hate the One75 because of the lower straps.

I think the Oakley visor will be a good upgrade from my CCM visor, which seems to have some distortion.

Last weekend I picked up a pair of Easton EQ4 skates to replace my beloved old Bauer Supreme 1000's. I bought the Supremes back in 1988 when they were the "king of the hill" so to speak. Funny part is I was able to get the Eastons on clearance and paid less for them than I did the Supremes back in '88.

Last week I purchased two Bauer Supreme ONE60 sticks, supposed to arrive Wednesday (I'm hoping, I have one stick left that's pretty nicked up and a game tomorrow night).

-Warrior Bonafide gloves

-Phoenix Coyote pro stock pants for $40.00. The padding is ridiculous, so I took the top half off and just use the bottom half for shells over my girdle. I didn't buy them for the protection, I bought them because they are badass looking!

-Used white Bauer 4500 lid to alternate between my black 4500.

Got my E600 helmet in. Very nice, very light weight, not QUITE as light as E700 but maybe halfway between the E700 and most other helmets. Had to find some new nylon straps because the old cage straps were too short. The fit is incredible, I think the best helmet fitting system I've seen yet. Tech from Giro bike helmets, you can adjust them front to back for a more snug fit, then occipital adjustment...very nice.

I had these. Traded up to one.9s very shortly after.

I recently purchased a CCM U+CL 65 flex crazy ovi as a replacement for my CCM U+10 65 Flex Crazy Ovi.

The U+10 was such a deadly stick and scored me a TON of goals, I can't wait to use the U+CL in a game.

Bought the 9k pants....a very different cut and feel compared to my old Takla 951's....They're sleeker, but feel as though there's a ton more padding. Very comfortable overall, can't wait for them to break in a bit! and at $80 I figured I couldn't go wrong haha

Bought a Dynasty shaft on clearance at hockeymonkey. Figured I'd give the 75 flex rating a try...I'm 6' and a pretty muscular 185 lbs, so I'm hoping I don't snap the stick in my first game. I mean I figured NHLers use really whippy sticks, and they sure as **** put more into their shots than I do so...

im 5'11 190 and i switched to the 75 flex earlier this season and it has been awesome for me, i could always shoot but now it has this extra feel and velocity on it. i realize all flexes effect people different but i guaratee you wont snap it. the first few shots will feel flimsy though, its not the stick just you needing to adjust your shot a bit.

Great deal, the zipper feature is really nice as well. May I ask where you got them?

Haha, extremely common misconception. A whippier stick is going to load more if you put the same amount of force into it. If I gave you two twigs and one was wet and soggy (like a whippy stick) while the other was dry (stiff) and ask you to apply the same amount of force in bending them, which will snap first?

Probably not the best analogy, but that's all I could think of right now lol

If anything, you are more likely going to break a stiffer stick than a whippier one (I'm not talking extremes like 100 flex vs 40 flex of course)
