Does anyone have an APX yet? How does it compare?
X60 are on sale at sportchek as well
All old vapor sticks are 20% off+ save additional 10% with a list coupon
So essentially 30% off

Pitch series, like the L series, L5s and so on....the shittiest mission imo, these are still avalible on most sportchek clearance racks.

is there a reason why you dislike the pitch series?

Don't agree with supple fit.
I think the design is not good.
Pitch holder also had issues as well.

FYI RS'ers, Sportchek will be subbing the SE16 hockey stick that's currently on sale for $99.99 with EQ50 and CCM CL sticks once the SE16 sells out. RC only has 4 SE16 left, the EQ50 and CCM CL at 99.99 will be BELOW COST by almost $70 per stick, I was shocked when I was told that those 2 sticks are the ad subsitutions.

Just got another update from my hockey guy, the subs went into effect this morning at our store, and have sold a ton already at those prices.
So if u haven't yet, give the store a call and go grab a EQ50 or CCM U+ CL for $99.99...6042785461

I think this is the reason why Edler is snapping a stick or 2 per game.

I agree about the wrist/snap shots with the RS, but I am still having trouble finding the stick's sweet spot with my slap shot. Some shots take off like a champ and some trickle away like I fanned on the shot. I definately get more consistency with my Total One.
Ya WTF is up with that? I noticed that with my old S7 pretty much every slap shot went off like a shotgun, it was consistent and predictable. With the S19 it's a guessing game, some slappers are bullets, others are little whiffle pucks that float towards the net. Snap shots with the S19 are no doubt 100x better than any other stick I've used.

O wow, that was fast...I have no idea what's going on at the store right now as I'm currently on holidays.
I am back tomorrow for the private sales event, hope to see some of you guys there!

Was gonna go in to just pick up a cage, but saw that you guys still had the CCM U+ CL in stock... $260 stick for $99 was too tempting to pass up. BUT, I also had a 20% off coupon stacked on top of that, so $80 for the CrazyLight. Not too shabby

Had a chance to try out the Easton RS. Incredible. Just as light as the S19 however it somehow feels stronger and more solid which is what I like. Slap shots are rockets and 10x more consistent than the S19, snaps are just as good without that whippy, noodle feel. The puck just flies off. If you are in the high end market looking for a stick, try the Easton RS if you dare, because you'll be hooked. I bought mine off HockeyHobo on Ebay, at the time it was free shipping but I think they charge $10 now.

I was able to pick up a couple EQ50's at metro for $99 each but they wouldn't accept my 20% coupon stack! $99 is an amazing price, but addition 20% off 2 sticks still $40, money's money.

Skiiipi, can you chime in and let me know if I would be able to swing by the Richmond location tomorrow and use the 20% off coupon if I return and repurchase the EQ50's?

Update: Richmond Center HX is completely out of EQ50's that apply for the $99 deal, as well as the U+ CL and One95s. There may be 1 or 2 SE16s Righties still lying around, but I left before we closed, so they may be gone.

I personally went to broadway and picked up a one95 myself. Call around other stores and see what they got.

Ok, going from a $50 Bauer One:20 to this CCM U+ CL, I can already tell a difference, even though I am fairly new and not very good. My shots are more stable rather a flutter-puck and have more kick to them, and passing is more crisp and quick.

Made a perfect cross-crease backhand saucer pass to the opposite winger in a game today, but he couldn't bury it :-(

I also picked up a pair of used Bauer Vapor XVI from Sports Junkies, upgrading from a used low end pair of Bauer Supreme 2000, also a huge difference there too. Much better power transfer and more agility.

I haven't personally read the fine print on the coupon. So I cannot say for sure.
But u can come in tomorrow and talk to me and I'll see if we can honor it.

Sweet, thanks.

I still need to pick up a new visor and he's thinking about getting a Grit bag, I'll see you later.

Got an additional 20% off on the EQ50's when I came in today! Woohoo!
Skiiipi, didn't know who you were there (tired to look for a guy w/ the revscene lanyard) and didn't want to bother people since everyone seemed fairly busy helping others.

Im usually the guy with the revscene lanyard. But its all faded and i use Bauer lanyard now. Skiiipi was the big asian guy in the striped dress shirt.

Thats a sweet deal on the eq50, so you ended up paying $80 for it? Lucky you found one lying around still

I was the one who told you that you could only use 1 coupon per stick, good thing you brought two coupons.

Hey Solid/skiipi-

Any word on whether HX will carry the new Easton helmet? I'm in the market for one, and if I can snag on at the next f&f event that would be swell

Yes we will be
I got the memo about the launch date already
Now whether or not Easton ships us the helmet on time is out of our hands.
Next F/F event should be in late jan/early feb.

Skiipi, do how long is the sale on the SE16's good for and do you know if they are subbing any other sticks?
Told a bunch of guys at hockey about it and now they ask me for more info.

Today is the last day
The subs are EQ50, CCM U+ CL, One 95, however some stores may be sold out of all subs and the se16.....richmond is one of them
So your buddies might have to call around to see if one of the other hockey experts have any of the subs left.

Langley, metro, park royal, pitt meadows would be the few I'd call first

Actually, cause skiiipi has been away for almost a week....
We already have the helmets on hand, and i have seen and tried them on. We got the E700's in the back but cannot put them out for sale until Dec.1

They are much roomier compared to the S19. The new retention system is also easier to work with than the old baseball cap style strap.
