Also what sizing should i be getting? I am 6'1 almost so im looking maybe 34'-36'?

as for durability, playing outside on asphalt/road will tear anything up over time... unless you decide to play stand-up, haha. to my knowledge, using old ice hockey pads may last longer than the Canadian Tire street hockey pads. if you're playing outside, duct-tape is your friend haha.

just keep browsing craigslist for some second-hand pads. i've seen decent second hand sets of pads go for as low as $50-75 (and ridiculously high and overpriced like $500 for some old school pads). expensive high-end pads will generally last longer on the ice. but if you're playing outdoor, get whatever is cheap, because basically everything will get torn up by the rough surface.

It has varied from year to year, but if its the same as last year, stuff will be expensive. They rated prices according to player popularity so Sedin/Kesler etc was $300 for a stick, while Hordichuk, Hansen sticks were cheaper.

Gone are the days of $75 used pro stocks/$125 new sticks

Thats some good info, thanks. If you happen to see any 32"+ pads go for cheap would ya mind PMing me?

Ive used the RBK's for bout a year now, couple rips and tears at bottom, but generally has held up pretty well, i just want bigger ones now.

I damn wish Marpole would go repave their outdoor rink..........

i'm wary about buying used gear, but for he most part, unless it's tambelini of ballard sized, it's not gonna fit me .

plus their sticks are all pretty damn stiff, and most are left as you can see why

Did you take the "lifts" into account? A lot pads are rating at the pad size then there's a +1 , 2 etc.. on top of that

not gonna happen... they need new mesh on the nets before anything lol... and it isn't different than QE's out door asphalt... you need pads that are nylon and not vinyl. I have old itech profile road hockey pads since 2000 and they are still good.. Mind you I haven't used them in 10 years, but it has gotten a lot of use in those days.

no, i did not go into detail regarding the thigh-rise as i wanted to keep my explanation simple.

a 34" pad with a +2" thigh rise and a 35"+1" are both basically 36" pads but one will fit better than the other, no? so i think he should still just be more concerned about where his knee sits before looking at thigh rise.

but taking the thigh-rise of the pad into consideration, modern pads usually have a notation +1, or +2, etc in addition to their fitment size (34" or whatever). the +1 or +2 is called the "thigh rise" which means there is a 1" or 2" extension at the top of the pad to make it longer, while it doesn't necessarily affect where your knee sits. the purpose of the thigh rise is to help seal up the 5-hole better in the butterfly, particularly for guys with wide butterflies.

hope my description is not too confusing. i will try to clarify as necessary

I zip-tied the mesh back lol but the pavement is terrible.....

Reason why the mesh is always broken is that there's always a bunch of guys playing soccer in the hockey courts......

Is this different than the Canucks' own sale out of Rogers Arena? I don't know how they do the sale anymore.

"There’s no new information other than some vague price points. Expect the sticks starting at $100 to be at least 4 years old, $100 gloves with no palms left, and the $75 skates to be prehistoric. There usually isn’t anything good until you spend a little more."

I'm really surprised the Canucks would start this sale on a Monday morning. I'm expecting the place to be flooded with high school kids and more tire kickers than people who are interested in dropping big cash especially on game used goalie equipment.

picked up my first pair of skates EVER.

I chose CCM U+ 08 for $299.99 since the bauers fit really narrow. So far they're comfy, I'll try them out on ice on Saturday.

Should I get waxed laces or not? What do I need to do to keep them in good condition? I've never really played ice hockey.

I personally like the waxed laces, I find that you get a better tie on them and that the lace holds when tightening. But it's all personal opinion.

You should undo the top two eyelets when removing your skate, pull out footbeds, and wipe down the blades. This way your skates should last for quite some time.

I have been using Pro-Lace waxed laces for the past couple of years. They have molded tips and last longer than your traditional laces with just plastic wrapped around the tips. Broken tips were my #1 reason for replacing laces before I made the switch.

They're about $5 a pair but they're worth it. Sometimes you can find them on sale... I stocked up at The Hockey Shop (I bought every single pair of 96" they had left) last year because they were making room for these Elite knockoffs called Pro Edge Plus. I've never tried them so I don't know if they're any good but they're around the same price...

^ hands down the best waxed lace out there. I've tried the ones from Cyclone, Sport Mart, etc. And ProLace is the one I always buy now.

Now that you mentioned that THS has changed them, I'm very weary because I have to replace mine soon

^ canadian tire has them you know. i don't like them because they don't have the traditioanl yellow. why do you like them? I also don't like them because they don't feel firm enough. I like the ones from cyclone where the tips are molded/chiseled. personally I like the stiffly waxed laces. They seem to grip better when tightening.

I opted to get the one100's when I was getting new skates. (Great skates, highly recommend if they fit your feet).
Tried on the Totalones and just didn't like the tounge. The one100 skates have a very nice felt tounge (Graf like).

I was in the same boat as you.
I would have loved to pick up a pair of one95's on closeout and save myself a few hundred dollars. Unfortunately, sizes were limited and I couldn't find my size from any retailer.
