Back to the tape thing, i like to rip the tape in half and tape the blade in thin strips all the way through. My theory is it gives me a faster rotation on the puck when i shoot

Well, its easy to test your theory rather than keeping it a theory....

wrap your stick the way you do, and wrap another or the same stick the recommened way....see if your theory works.

i could be wrong though but they have this room with a net and accuracy markers etc

I know it's probably unrelated, the tape job and the speed of a shot, but I've been doing it for so long, why stop now lol.

Handheld radar detector thingy. Someone stand behind the net crouched as you shoot. IIRC I shot 77 mph.

With regards to taping your blade.

I cut my tape in half so it takes twice as long to get around the blade. It also creates twice as many ridges which gives a bit more friction. I dunno I can feel the puck better on my stick when I do this.

ah I just read that Kilinim does this too

Heres my stuff, I have only played ice hockey once, but I am going to go to my friends drop in and such and learn how to skate and stuff.

Helmet: Nike Bauer 5500 w/ FM8500 cage (memory foam is awesome, haven't really worn the cage much but I will when i start ice hockey)

Elbow Pads: Easton X-treme (decent, but will get something more comfortable)

Gloves: Nike Bauer XVI (I love these gloves)

Shoulder Pads: CCM Tack 752 (a bit big so I might get something else to replace it)

Pants: CCM Supra (surprisingly light, and not bulky)

Shin Pads: Nike Bauer Supreme 50 (I simply love these, light w/dry-fit, not bulky, super comfy)

Skates: Nike Bauer Supreme Comp (not worn long enough to break them in)

Rollerblades: Mission Assassins (good blades, kinda expensive but it was the best fit for me)

Shafts/Sticks: Warrior Dolomite Fedorov (love the LIE 4 that it comes with)

Shafts/Sticks: Broken 1p int. TPS Rubber shaft (around 77 flex), Easton Cyclone... Shafts only because I need to find a P106 composite tapered & non-tapered. P106 is so damn hard to get locally.

If anyone knows similar patterns to P106, please post it here or PM me. I have a feeling I will have to switch curves because finding the blades locally is expensive and difficult..but I don't want to order and have wait time.
Bro let me know if you find them. I would KILL for a tapered wood P106. Kill.

Helmet: Nike Bauer 4500 w/ FM8500 cage

Elbow Pads: RBK 3K

Gloves: Nike Bauer 4-Rolls

Shoulder Pads: Itech 492

Shin Pads: Easton S5s

Skates: NB Supreme Comp SMU

Shafts/Sticks: Dolo 2-piece with wood P88 blade.

I stopped using RBK ops'.


Had 3, they all had the same problem in common for me.The blades seemed to have damage faster, especially at the toe....even faster than wooden blades/sticks. Gameplay wise, i still don't feel convinced that any of the RBK sticks i have was the best i have ever used. I remember a Jofa/Titan (which now is RBK) stick that i used a few years ago which was an FB wood which was better than any of the RBK ops that i ever owned.

Until i feel convinced otherwise, i am sticking to my TPS.
