• The Story Behind the RG Series - Camo Hockey Gear

    By Rob Howland, Senior Buyer at Pure Hockey

    My father-in-law, a Vietnam Air Force Veteran, was lying in a hospital bed dying. For the 17 years that I knew him, I saw Richard Grenier suffer from what he believed was over-exposure to Agent Orange. His circulation system was failing him and both of his legs were amputated. He had multiple surgeries to try to sustain blood flow to his extremities, but ultimately there was nothing left to do. What would crush the spirit of many men didn’t crush him, though. He always had a smile on his face and was SO good to my kids. It was sad to see this man decline from being an avid golfer so someone who couldn’t do much at all.

  • New Easton Stealth CX Hockey Stick Review

    The latest stick release from Easton Hockey is one that has been highly anticipated by me personally. When I found out they would be bringing back the Stealth name, I knew that they had to have a pretty special hockey stick on the way. It wouldn’t make sense to risk the loyal following the line has had by releasing a stick that wouldn’t live up to the name.

    I was, for a long time, one of those loyal followers -- at least since Easton introduced their elliptical taper sticks with the S-17. I can still remember how much different, and better, the release felt on that stick the first time I used it. From there I continued on to the S19, RS and finally the RSII. So as you can guess, I was pretty excited to get the new Easton Stealth CX hockey stick in my hands.

    Easton is debuting some pretty serious technology in the CX. This isn’t one of those models where a company simply tweaks the previous version a little; there is new technology in every part of this stick. Their goal was to create a hockey stick that would be a top-level performance stick with great durability and have a lightweight but still solid feel.

    The Stealth CX marks the first time Easton has released a true-one piece stick with an elliptical taper. This was accomplished using a new design to roll the layers of carbon fiber into the taper, creating a seamless construction. What is the significance of this? Read on to find out…

    Let’s not kid around here; Over the past 5-10 years Easton has had issues getting a skate on the market that has generated vast interest or wide adoption.
