Jake’s Custom Pro Shop – El Segundo, CA

Posted in Announcements with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2011 by prostocknation

Sorry for the short hiatus.  I was in California last week and stumbled upon this LHS (Local Hockey Shop) through @Projekt29 on Twitter while I tried to hunt down a Bauer HS22 Pro Straight Visor (you can no longer find these in Canada… only the RBE I and the new HS23.)


On my way to LAX (that’s the Los Angeles Airport for those unfamiliar) I made a pit stop here to check it out.  Run by Jake Pote and his staff, Jake’s Custom Pro Shop is the place to find hockey equipment.  Like the name says, they do custom work.  If you need new palms on your gloves, want the cuffs shortened/extended, change the holders on your skates, the list goes on, bring them by and Jake will do it right.

Not only do they carry retail equipment but they also sell Pro Stock gear directly from the LA Kings! Sticks, gloves, socks, helmets, goalie gear, you name it, they probably have it.  The staff are very knowledgeable and I had an awesome time just talking to them about equipment.  If I didn’t have a flight to catch I could have chatted them up for the rest of the day.

If you are in the LA area, check them out at:

630 N. Sepulveda Blvd.

Suite 13A

El Segundo, CA 90245

You can also give them a call at (310) 322-5253 or visit their website at

Whether you are looking for game used equipment for your personal collection or simply looking for pro gear to play with, Jake’s is your place.  Don’t forget they also do alterations and custom work, you won’t find that at the big box stores!

Oh, and that visor I never did find it.  I went to three different shops that day and everybody was sold out of the HS22 Pro Straight Clear.  The closest I found was the Mirrored one, but wearing one of those is the same as painting a big target on your back.
