ProStockNation.com Preview: Canucks Year End Equipment Sale

Posted in Equipment Sales with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2012 by prostocknation

We have a couple photos of what will be available on Saturday morning.  More stock brought out on Sunday but there doesn’t seem to be as much gear compared to previous years to begin with.  This looks more like an apparel sale with some equipment involved.

You’ll find two tables with skates priced at $275 right when you walk in.


Opposite the skates are a few tables of practice knit socks ($10), XL Edge Socks ($15), and assorted gloves ($125-$200)


Goalie equipment worn by Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider will also be for sale.


There’s only two stick racks this year.  The staff will be bringing out more items throughout the sale and the sticks range from $49-$210.  Game worn jerseys will also be available starting at $300.


Like I mentioned earlier this seems more like an apparel sale than anything.  Don’t expect it to rival any dedicated Canucks equipment sales you’ve been to in the past.


Be sure to share all of your purchases with us.  Happy gear hunting.

Reading Flex, Shaft & Blade Weight On Your Pro Stock Warrior Stick

Posted in ProStockNation.com Announcements, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2011 by prostocknation


When you buy a pro stock stick you never really know what you’re going to end up with.  Professional players can ask manufacturers to customize their sticks to the point where nothing on the retail market is comparable to it.  While the codes marked on pro stock Warrior sticks don’t tell us much about the stick’s construction it does give us information about flex and the weights of the shaft and blade.

First we must familiarize ourselves with the flex system they are using.  Unlike Warrior’s retail offerings which use the scale made popular by Easton (higher number = more stiff) their pro sticks are still measured the same way Innovative did back in the day (higher number = more flexible.)

We are using the Flex Chart available at ModSquadHockey.com for reference.  The Innovative flex is on the left with the “Easton” equivalent on the right.

180 = 120 flex

200 = 110 flex

220 = 105 flex

260 = 90 flex

300 = 80 flex

340 = 75 flex

380 = 70 flex

440 = 65 flex

Turn to the back side of the shaft and you will see a series of 9 digits.  These digits are divided into 3 segments, the first 3 being Flex (Innovative scale), middle 3 being the shaft weight (in grams), and the last 3 is blade weight (in grams as well.)  So in this case with our flex being “290” it converts to about 85 flex.

You will also find information regarding the flex and shaft weight on a label inside the shaft (assuming your stick is uncut.)  The flex rating you see inside may be slightly different than the one stamped on the outside of the shaft but it is indeed more accurate.  In the same batch of sticks labeled as “290” on the outside you will still get a range of flexes above or below this number.  This standard deviation will vary from manufacturer.

Hope this brief guide will be of help the next time you are shopping for a pro stock Warrior.  Enjoy equipment sale season this Summer.

Warrior Luxe Gloves

Posted in Gear Sightings with tags , , , , , , , on February 11, 2011 by prostocknation

We’re still waiting for Warrior’s 2011 line to come out but this is probably going to be the most anticipated protective line of the year with Zote foams incorporated into all of their top end offerings.

Players like Kostitsyn, Kovalev and Spezza are among a few players already spotted sporting a pair of these this season and we can’t wait to get our hands on a pair.

Also check out Matt Gilroy’s gloves with the extra padding on the back rolls.  All of the Rangers are on board with this new alteration to combat the bad string of hand injuries sustained earlier in the season.

Pro Stock Review: Warrior Franchise 14″ Glove – Rob Davison/Vancouver Canucks

Posted in Equipment Reviews, Pro Stock with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 21, 2010 by prostocknation

Warrior Franchise 14” Rob Davison Vancouver Canucks Pro Stock

As a glove enthusiast the main criteria I look for in a glove includes the outer shell being constructed of Tufftek and plastic inserts.  After switching over from leather gloves I’ve had no complaints about Tufftek.  It’s lightweight, breathable and not to mention it won’t crack over time like leather tends to do; and personally I prefer the look of Tufftek (Nylon.)  There are plastic inserts all over this glove which offer extra protection while minimizing added weight.  Oh, and I’m also a sucker for traditional 4-roll  style gloves.

Since these gloves are pro stock there are a few variations compared to their retail cousins:

  • Cuff graphic package is different (larger ‘Warrior’ font vs Stripes)
  • Mesh Gussets
  • Digital Palms
  • Silver Shield in the fingers

First off you’ll notice these gloves have the larger Warrior font package, there is an extra charge for this ‘option’ when customizing.  I prefer very plain gloves so this solid blue color with white graphics looks really appealing to my eyes.  Aesthetically there’s not much else to say other than the graphics are still screened on like the retail models.

Mesh gussets are my new found love.  I prefer mesh over any material on most retail hockey gloves like Nash or MSH2 because it allows for much more airflow.  One of the least desirable feelings in hockey is to have your hands soaked in sweat inside your gloves while you’re playing.  The mesh gussets really help with keeping your hands cool and to an extent, dry.

But what really sold me on these gloves were the digital palms.  This being my second experience with digital (first was on a pair of Eagle CP94), I had to have them.  For those who have not heard of digital, it’s the thinnest performance palm available on the market, similar to the palm you’d find on a pair of golf gloves.  Digital palms are a performance palm and is not warrantied and that’s probably why retail model gloves don’t come with them.  If you want to give digital a try you can always re-palm your existing pair or go the custom route.  All other palms, including the oh so popular MSH2, will feel thick after using digital.  As with all good things there are a few cons as well.  To extend the life of your investment you must be extra careful compared to other palms.  If you’re particularly hard on your gear or frequently forget to air out your equipment then digital is not for you.  Since the palm is very thin it rips easier than other materials.  I’m really easy on my gear and I’ve used these gloves for about a year and they are holding up fine.  Avoid sharp edges on the knob of your stick and NEVER wipe your skate blades with these gloves (This is a given with ANY palm.)  My previous pair of digital palms lasted a year and I purchased them used.  Make sure you dry them out as soon as possible otherwise the palms get rather crusty, a rather unpleasant feeling the next time you put them on.

The Silver Shield lining is a fantastic feature to have, especially in the fingers (next paragraph will explain why.)  It wicks away moisture and prevents bacteria from growing.  I played outside in 30°C weather and my hands were amazingly dry.  I played later in the week in similar weather with my Eagle CP94 and my hands were soaked.  The lining dries much faster than most gloves so it’s ideal if you have more than one ice time in a day.

The Franchise is one of the more expensive gloves on the market but it’s worth it.  If you’re interested in a pair I’d skip the retail route and go custom.  I’ve tried on some retail versions of this glove (without Silver Shield in the fingers) and the glove feels very abrasive against my knuckles.  I’m sure with a bit of breaking in the gloves will feel fine but mine felt comfortable the first time I used them.  Customizing a pair of gloves will also give you the opportunity to choose palms and gussets not available on a glove off the store shelf.  I would suggest mesh gussets like I have with this pair but the palm should be chosen according to the level and frequency of hockey you play.  If you can afford to buy these gloves, go for it.  Few gloves can rival the Franchise especially when so many gloves are being made overseas now.
