Gear Sightings – 2012 Hall of Fame Legends Game

Posted in Gear Sightings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 18, 2012 by prostocknation

I attended the Legends game at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto last weekend.  Not only was this a chance to see former star players on the ice again, but also an opportunity to see what kind of gear they would be wearing.

Here were some highlights:

 

Pavel Bure:
The game was split into two 30 minute halves.  During the first half he was wearing a cheapo Bauer 1500 helmet but took it off for the second half.  He is still wearing his signature Bauer Vapor 10 skates which were one of the most popular boots of it’s time.  Continuing with the Bauer theme, he was using a Vapor X:60 stick.  His gloves are made by a Russian company called “Flame”, they are a copy of the Warrior Franchise design.

Joe Sakic:
Other than his skates, his other equipment were not from his playing days.  Burnaby Joe was seen sporting an E700 helmet (no visor), E-Pro gloves (albeit they had his name on the cuff but they weren’t his typical Z-Airs) and a Mako stick.

Mats Sundin:
Sundin was in the same CCM Vector skates and HT2 helmet from his playing days.  Not from his playing days were the Salming gloves and an Easton Stealth RS stick.

Trevor Kidd:
Trevor Kidd was always known for his Brian’s pads with the most elaborate designs.  This set from his time with the Hanover Scorpions of the DEL were no different.

Doug Gilmour:
Killer was in Warrior Franchises and Hustlers paired with a Reebok 11K stick for this game.  A change from the Winnwell gear he was supplied in last years Legends game.

Adam Foote:
The award with the player wearing the most gear from his playing days would have to go to Adam Foote.  He was still wearing his Avalanche issued CCM HT2 Helmet, Easton E-Pro gloves and pants.  The only item not of his era was the RS stick.

REVIEW: Easton Stealth RS Pro Stock Hockey Gloves

Posted in Equipment Reviews, Pro Stock with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 10, 2012 by prostocknation

The Stealth RS is Easton’s latest top end glove in their line up.  This glove caters to players who prefer a an “in-between” fit; one that is not too loose like a traditional glove but not overly tight like many of the anatomical offerings on the market.

We are reviewing the Pro version of the glove so there will be some differences in the materials used between the retail model.  The materials used in the entire glove (shell, liner, gussets, palms) are not the same but the overall shape remains similar minus the custom cuff.

Those who are familiar with the Pro Stock Easton E-Pro 4-Roll glove will recognize many of the materials used in this Pro RS.  They share the same silver Bio-Dri liner, nylon shell and nash gussets/palms.  The retail RS comes with the new Dri-Lex liner, nylon/synthetic shell, all new AX Suede palm and gussets.  Mid-density foams and PE inserts are found throughout both versions and help make this glove very lightweight.

So how does the glove fit?  It is tight throughout the fingers and in the back of the hand.  The cuff flares out for added wrist mobility.  I would compare it to the fit of the Bauer Vapor series but a bit more snug in the fingers.

(Pictured above: the same Nash palm and gusset you find on most pro stock Easton E-Pro hockey gloves).  I’ve never had an issue with these palms crusting up or piling too much.  They are thin enough to give an excellent stick feel but because of this, durability may be an issue if you’re particularly tough on your palms.

The Easton RS is unique in the way it has three piece index, middle and ring fingers.  Opening and closing the hand feels very natural and comfortable with this design.  I am able to get a better feel of the stick compared to many of the competitors’ gloves with only a 3 piece index finger design.   This is my favorite feature of the glove.

The cuff is angled; a design similar to the old Jofa gloves.  It has plastic inserts throughout.  The lock thumb is also pretty beefy but not to the point where it is uncomfortable to use.

The palm side of the cuff is cut very low.  It has a huge E-Pro influence and I prefer this type of cuff over the stock retail one.


The retail model of this glove is currently retailing for $149.99US.  Not that many pro players are using this glove quite yet so it makes finding a pro version quite difficult.

The Easton Stealth RS is a very comfortable and mobile glove.  Those who like the fit of Bauer’s Vapor series will feel right at home with these as well.  Sadly, it’s not the prettiest glove in the world but what it lacks in looks it makes up in performance and fit.

Easton Stealth RS

Posted in Gear Sightings, Leaks with tags , , , , , , , , on May 30, 2011 by prostocknation

We’ve been getting lots of questions regarding this stick so after staring at the press release photos for the longest time we decided to get our own.  We do think this is a S19 repaint because structurally, they match up side by side identically.

The RS paint job on the front actually looks ‘stealthy’ like the original Easton Stealth before it tailed off and started getting glammed up with metallic silver logos all over it.

We’ll have to wait until more official specs are released by Easton to find out what structural or build changes have been made compared to the S19.

Comes out Q4 of 2011…
