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…

Total One Graphics Update

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

After watching the NHL All Star Skills Competition I noticed the ever increasing amount of players using the Total One stick. And then I noticed something unique about those very Total Ones. Every player using one has the standard yellow graphics package adorning their stick. That is, except for Eric Staal.

He can be seen above congratulating Michael Grabner after his victory in the fastest skater competition. I took a further look into previous photos of Eric Staal to see if this was a special one time all star stick, or if it had been issued earlier. The following are two photos of Staal. One in a game against the New York Islanders, and the second against the Atlanta Thrashers. The game in Atlanta took place on December 16th 2010, proving that the stick is not a one game special.

This begs the question. Will Bauer start introducing the Total One in multiple color packages for NHL teams, and will this filter down to the retail version? I am inclined to believe they will, as this is exactly how the original Bauer One95 stick progressed. It debuted in one standard graphic package before getting several makeovers in a wide range of colors. Bauer has certain established it’s iconic image with the yellow Total One, helping build it’s customer recognition, it would be a great time for them to introduce more options for both pro stock and retail models.

Order Placed For Goal Equipment!

Posted in Goaltending with tags , , , , , , on December 23, 2010 by prostocknation

Finally saved up enough money this Holiday season for a set of goalie gear.  Having been a skater for many years I finally ventured into the crease and bought a, what I think is decent, set of gear for a beginning goaltender.  Unfortunately Pro Stock was simply out of my price range but I did attempt to buy Canadian made goods whenever possible.

Mask – Hackva 2608

C/A – McKenney Pro Spec (2007)

Blocker – Brian’s DX2 Pro

Catcher – Brian’s DX5

Pants – McKenney 870 Pro Spec (2009)

Pads – Vaughn Velocity 7450 V4

Skates – Nike Bauer Supreme ONE95

Stick – Sherwood 9950

Now to play the waiting game and have them all shipped… I still need to pick up a few other things like a bag and goalie cut jersey.  We’ll see how that goes.

ProStockNation.com Visits The Vancouver Canucks

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2010 by prostocknation

Sorry for the quality of the pics, we didn’t have our DSLR with us this time.

Not much explaining needed.  I’m sure Canuck Fans have seen these doors plenty of times.

View from the Best Buy Club on the 500-Level at the Rogers Arena.  Not only did the ice get a new paint job but the floor in the bowl did as well; white with a blue and green scheme going on.

Back to the Canucks room.

Looks like Rypien’s skates are getting some attention.  We didn’t want to step foot in this room without the Equipment personnel present out of respect because we know how much pride goes into their work.

To clear up any rumors about the Sedins allegedly wearing an “11K” helmet, looks like they’re still using the 8K.  They’re  giving Bauer X:60 gloves a try and still skating in Supreme ONE95s after testing out Total ONEs at the end of last year.  We were surprised to see no Total ONEs in the room.

Sergei Shirokov is back in town and skating; we hope he earns a full time spot on the roster this year.  His gear remains pretty much unchanged since last season; Bauer 4500 Helmet, Bauer XXXX Pro Gloves, X:60 Skates.

Side note: On top of being a skilled player he is also willing to go out of his way for his fans.  He came out to find us after the Moose played the Heat in Abbotsford last year and signed my authentic Shirokov Moose Jersey.

 

Thanks again Sergei!

What Happened Here?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 13, 2010 by prostocknation

After a recent trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, these skates really stood out for me from an equipment stand point. Looks like Lidstrom is a Step Steel user (Swedish player with Swedish steel, no surprise) but what probably caught your eye first was the huge chunk of skate missing on the left ankle.

Lidstrom took a puck to the left ankle days before the Winter Classic ’09 and it looks like their equipment staff must have added some extra protection in that area but later removed it? After a quick search on Getty Images there’s no photos of Lidstrom wearing these altered skates but if you’ve ever wondered what the inside of a Nike Bauer ONE95 looks like, here you are.
