During quarantine with no hockey I found myself saying, there’s no hockey I should sell some of my extra equipment and pay the mortgage and other bills. Next thing you know, I sell 2 shells and 2 pairs of gloves and buy 6 more of each. It’s a vicious cycle.

Anyone else have this problem?

So far since March when it shut down I’ve bought 2 bags, 2 pairs of gloves, 4 jerseys, 2 sets of socks, a skate mat, soakers, 2 Tacks 910 buckets, a visor, a full bubble for just in case we had to when hockey came back lol Now I’m playing again though and it feels great

I bought and attempted to sell a ton of stuff during quarantine. I was bored and losing my mind. Now that I started playing again, I found what I really like out on the ice, and decided to dump the rest. Can’t replicate how a pair of pants will feel running around your basement...

Biggest surprise was some pro stock heel curve sticks I picked up from PSH. I was kinda iffy first game with them, but now I love them. I’m pissed I only have 3. They’re going to be hard to find.

Been buying way too many gloves that are turning into ornaments in my garage at this point.
Cant wait to use them when the rinks start opening back up here. (dont know when that will be with how California keeps getting worse  :nono:

Yeah I went on my biggest gear splurge ever.

 

Let's see...

 

6 practice jerseys

5 pairs of gloves

5 sets of socks

4 girdle shells

3 helmets

2 pairs of shoulder pads

1 pro bag

1 toiletry bag

1 pair of pants

1 stick

1 pair of elbow pads

1 visor

 

And some helmet decals for good measure.

 

I've skated 5 times in the past 2 weeks, and all I want to wear is my new Thrashers set. :rofl:

After experimenting with different Bauer setups, I finally took the plunge and ordered a custom set of JRZ goalie gear (pads, glove, blocker) and a Kenesky PP1 chest protector.

Sold all of my 56 praccys to Kevin and Jake and replaced them with 52s which actually fit. Sold a couple pair of gloves and bought a couple pair to replace. Switched to a girdle and bought some shells. Now all I need is ice time to make sure I like the switch and will sell the pants. Just a big viscious but fun cycle!!

I’ve spent quarantine attempting to find a helmet that fits well but also passes the mirror test. I’m on my 5th 😒🙃

Same here. It’s starting to look like I’ll never leave the 4500.

When Hockey ended late March I thought what a good time to get rid of a few things clean up my hockey area. Really tidy things up...

 

Now I have around 50 jersey/sock combinations....10 will have matching helmet.pants...etc....and the rest just use generic black/blue/red...pants/bucket....

 

I got rid of about 4 or 5 of those and was doing really well...

 

Then brought about 8 in...........It is a vicious circle......

I think I picked up 2 or 3 more shells, 1 more pair of gloves, then a bunch of gear for roller (1 pair of new skates, 1 pair of ice boots for Marsblade O1, another pair for the R1, and 2 sticks).

 

Not sure when I'll be back on the ice, but I really want/need to slim everything down

4500 will always look good. I have 4 of them.

 

I started using an IMS 9.0 and I realized it only passes the mirror test if you're wearing shoulder pads.  I don't know why, but it does.  In my opinion, at least.
