Calgary Flames 2012 Equipment Sale

Posted in Equipment Sales with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2012 by prostocknation


The Calgary Flames’ 2012 Used Equipment Sale is upcoming!

Details:

  • Saturday, May 26, 2012
  • 8am-1pm
  • FanAttic Store at the Saddledome (555 Saddledome Rise SE, Calgary, AB, T2G 2W1, Canada)

 

This is about half their sticks available.  I can see various U+, ONE95, 11K, Widows, Dolomites and Total ONEs.

Pro Stock practice jerseys in a variety of colors and sizes.  You definitely won’t find these in retail stores.  Keep in mind these run from sizes 54-60.

On top of the usual home/away black pants and gloves they also have gear from their Alternate sets.  I’m more of a fan of these colors.  I wish the Flames would use these full time.

Of course it wouldn’t be an equipment sale without goalie gear.  Here’s your chance to own Kipper or Karlsson’s combo.

But ultimately the item that interests me the most at this sale is Henrik Karlsson’s mask.  At $2500 it is an absolute bargain for a NHL used mask.  Goalies tend to hang onto their masks so when they’re made available for sale they command big dollars from collectors.

Unless your name is Jarome Iginla or Brad Richards, Easton won’t even make these Z-Air gloves for you.  Luckily you have the chance to own a pair at this sale.

Lastly, Cammy’s pants and helmet he brought over from the Habs are for sale as well.

Any equipment remaining at the end of this sale will be made available through FanAttic’s mail order line.  Be sure to share your pick ups with us!

Please contact them directly with any questions you may have regarding this sale.

Less Than 12 Hours Away! Preview: Vancouver Canucks Equipment Sale 2011

Posted in Equipment Sales with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2011 by prostocknation

Welcome to ProStockNation.com’s exclusive preview of the Vancouver Canucks 2011 Equipment Sale.

Oh how things have changed.  If you have been to the Canucks’ sales in the past you might be thinking how different the pictures below look.  Sales went from being a huge annual 2-day excursion with loads of equipment scattered across the arena concourse to a single day event and now gear has been sold year round at the Canucks Outlet Store halfway across town.

The equipment sale this year will be housed in an area that’s about the same size as the average Downtown Vancouver studio suite.

You will find a wide variety of equipment from current and past seasons.  Contrary to our earlier reports, there will not be new stock brought out each day.  Stock is limited and everything will be on a first come first served basis.  There will be no limits on how much you can buy.  There are different price points for sticks.  These price points will be indicated by lists posted on the wall separated by tape.

Gloves will be scattered in several wire bins as well as on top of the sticks.

In the “goalie corner” you will find brand new and used gear from the likes of Roberto Luongo, Cory Schneider, Jason LaBarbera, Andrew Raycroft, and Michael Houser among others.

Skates are nicely laid out into two main sections… prehistoric (CCM Mustangs, Bauer Vapor 10, older CCM Tacks) and the present (more recent model skates.)

This is an equipment sale first!  Since this is a smaller sale the preparation was more precisely done than the previous ones.  Many of the skates will have a tag indicating the player, model name, and the size.  This will make finding your size much easier than the conventional methods of “guessing and checking” and looking underneath the insole/skate and praying for some sign of marking.

In the “premium corner” you will find game used equipment from the more popular players on the team such as the Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Ryan Kesler, and Alexandre Burrows.

If you go to the sale, please share with us what you picked up!

A Belated Welcome Back, Peter Forsberg

Posted in Gear Sightings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 13, 2011 by prostocknation

Foppa has made his return to the NHL and he is wearing a Vapor XXXX Skate on this right (troubled) foot and X:60 on the left.  Forsberg has consistently been a premier player in the NHL when healthy and hopefully he can be a difference maker in helping the Avs make the post-season.  It’s interesting to see the Nike in the Nike Bauer logo is still visible on his skates since it should’ve been blacked out by now.

He was also seen practicing in an Easton S19 helmet but has gone back to familiar Bauer territory (5100, not the 5000/5500 since those have been discontinued.)  Like Iginla, he is still loving the Z-Air style gloves and it doesn’t look like he is using a real EQ50 either since the focus weights are not visible.

Can we start calling the Easton P4 pattern Forsberg again?

They start talking about “alternative protection” at 1:34 into the video and the custom modifications Ilya Kovalchuk had on his skates during his time in Atlanta.

Jonas Hiller – MLX Goalie Skates

Posted in Pro Stock, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2010 by prostocknation

Jonas Hiller has been spotted wearing MLX skates as of late.  It’s the first and only goalie skate offering we’ve seen from this company with Mario Lemieux’s involvement.  We wonder if MLX is coming out with these skates or if they’re just a player’s boot wrapped in a cowling.

The player’s skates have been out for several months now and they’ve got guys like Sergei Gonchar, Daniel Alfredsson, Dustin Byfuglien and Paul Gaustad using their product right now.  But for a skate with a MSRP of $799 (currently on special for $599) we don’t know if we’d want to take the gamble and shell out top of the line money for a skate we can’t even try on before buying.  That being said, we did sign up to test a pair of these skates but unfortunately we were not picked.  So to the guys at MLX, if you’re interested in giving us a shot, drop us a line.
