I know im late to the party about the Visors fogging up, but i used to have this problem come 3rd period and my visors started fogging up like crazy. I bought a skull cap and used the any antifog and ive never had an issue with my visor fogging up ever since.

Anyone know of a good deal on full face shields? Im currently using a half visor and now im kinda scared of losing teeth, already chipped 2. Ive used a mouthguard and birdcage but i hate it.

I was at Cyclone getting my skates sharpened and took a look at the P08 curve. That thing is nasty. And I thought my P92 was a badass curve. Too bad I have way too many sticks and know I shouldn't try another stick. =(

I have a couple jerseys that are 54-56 sized, and I want to use them in net. Problem is, the arms are too tight to fit my C/A. Has anyone ever modified a jersey to add width to the arms? If I had a good sewing maching I'd try it myself, but in this case I'd rather find a shop that's done it before.

Has anyone had a jersey modded?
Or am I breaking new ground here?

There should be an option for the cement floor users to run Stainless balls rather than the PVC balls in the sportcourt system. Rollerfly is going to offer both options.

Not really.
I've tried everything from pad covers, to slippery tape, to furniture sliders on my 9000SR Reebok pads (strictly inline pads), and nothing works well enough to count on in a game. I can stop most shots coming in as my GAA is low on the inline rink. But come in laterally, and I'm stuck either opening my 5 hole, or simply falling over as my pads stick to the floor.

The rollerfly is a mechanical option, and should work well as long as they don't get gummed up with plastic dust.

covers probably wont nearly as good as the rollerfly, but it's roller hockey.. i wouldn't invest too much in the game. If you want to be able to go side to side and butterfly push etc, play ice.

I've seen guys cut out the underside of the arm and sew fabric there to make it wider. I don't know of any places that will do it though so it might be a better option for you just to buy a goal cut. The sleeves on player cuts are way too long and skinny.

the jerseys these days are so tight! As a player, I like it though. Looks much cleaner and modern. I remember when they first appeared in the all star game (those were tighter than they are now) it looked weird.

as for goalies, the edge practice jerseys have pretty wide arms.

Edge was such a failure and is an obsolete material now. The current pro jerseys are indeed baggier and are made of a combo of Air Knit and Stretch Mesh.

I have never tried the actual "edge" fabric. When I refer to edge I just generalize to reebok's new "cut" for their jerseys. Personally, I could care what the jersey is made out of, but I like the slimmer fit.

For anyone that still has any left, SportChek is honouring the Team Assist coupons until Feb 28th, 2013.

Easton's new e28 curve on the Mako II is pretty interesting for those who love the wacky open toe curves ie p08!

hockeymonkey. ~$145-50 depending on flex, they often have 20% off clearance codes, and sometimes even free shipping on top of that. works out to about $120

I play a pretty high level on ice 3 days a week, but recently took on backup duties on my buddie's inline team. It's also a high level of play, but what gets me is the fact that I'm an okay ice goalie in my group, but I'm a stellar inline goalie. That gives me a lot of opportunities out there considering that Sportsplex is a NARCH member.

A lot of dudes have the same attitude about not investing much into the inline game. For me, I don't care about the money. It's the challenge I get from playing, and the joy I get from stoning those skinny inline kids.

I think you're right about this.
So instead of cutting my new Kiprusoff jersey, I bought a Flames practice jersey off Hockey Monkey with my number on it. I guess my Kipper jersey will come out for Abbotsford Heat games.

You should man, it's a really cool innovation!
Should be available in March, as the guys are taking preorders for them now. I asked the guys earlier if I could screw the plates to my inline pads rather than use the straps and they were keen on the idea. That would be awesome, and keep the plates really low key.

Those fukken Edge jerseys..... are horrible. I kept getting the shaft of my stick caught in the loose sleeve during play, which has never happened before. I moved to the new Pro jersey, and it's much better.

but I still love me some old skool CCM jerseys. You can still get them from hockey monkey for cheap, and they fit the best.



Final thoughts......


I want this.


It's time to replace mine based on the number of deep bruises I have on my inner forearms. Plus the mechanical nature of the armor is just sexy.

I'm looking forward to the new Warrior goal products. The hiring of Pete Smith has completely turned their lineup around compared with the unsuccessful Swagger and Messiah pads.

As for the jerseys the original Edge is cut differently than what the pros are wearing right now. Nike should be the front runner for the next NHL contract in 2016, they don't have much competition outside of Bauer/Inaria right now. I picked up a Team Canada Swift and love the material even though it feels a bit like a raincoat.

If you're on a budget looking for a C/A I would recommend McKenney, especially the 870 or 890 models. They're made in Canada and are much better quality than the other "big names" in the same price point.

How do you dry goalie equipment in a non-heated garage? I decided i didn't want the stains on my pads so i pressure washed all the gear, then realized i have no heaters or anything to help dry them with.

They are now hanging on a stick propped up by 2 ladders

If you have the space for it I would recommend investing in a Rocket Sports Dryer. It's much quicker and more effective than just hanging. All of the reviews I've read online have been positive.

I just hang my gear and have a floor fan blowing into the general direction of my gear. Dries overnight. I've never used a pressure washer on gear. The Mr. Clean magic eraser pads take off puck marks and stains pretty damn well
