@AnimalFear: Many pants have the zippers/velcro on the inside of the leg to allow for a more wide/narrow fit depending on if they are closed (forming having an overlap) or open (example).

So if your pants don't have this or are not tight enough with it closed, you could do the same on the inside with another fold. Before cutting I'd use some safety pins to figure out how tight you want them, and then either stitch in a set of velcros or stitch them up directly (speedy stitcher is recommended).

In Topic: Jofa/RBK/Reebok Shin top flap.....cut or uncut?

So when I was looking for Jofa/RBK shins I avoided models with the flap cut off - now that I have a few pairs (Rbk 9K, Rbk 5K, Rbk/Jofa 5k, etc) I have cut the flap on all of them since they are always in the way, no matter what pant / girdle I use....

Would be interesting, I was aware that Warrior did e.g. the Mega Franchise (generally beefed up version) but not specific little mods (especially not for the Austrian market - players here generally don't get custom gloves but just regular team stock from what I've heard). All the CHL Warrior gloves from Black Wings Linz I checked out during their sale were the same retail model, however Red Bull Salzburg is fully rocking Warriors all season so they probably have more pull :)


Are you certain the EQM didn't add them himself?


Side-note: With most Austrian teams having a (sponsorship) deal with an equipment vendor, all players usually have to rock the same companies glove, otherwise they tape over / black out the logos. Have not yet seen awesome stuff like cuff-roll swaps over here :/

Same here, used VH, previous owner was rocking 9D in Vapors before (I am 8.5EE in Vapors) and the skate did fit perfectly after a bake.

Also have a kinda "strange" project going on, converting a pair of goalie VH to player skates. Prior owner was amazed I could even fit my foot into the skate without the shoehorn let alone baking :)

When asking the sellers of used VH around these parts, they were all able to provide the electronic order form, which gives you a decent idea about the size since it contains:

* Previous skate & size

* Previous holder & size


With those two bits of information you can usually figure it out.
