I play street hockey/roller hockey occasionally.

There's a store here that sells overstock stuff, and I can usually find great hockey gear for dirt cheap.

Example being a pair of Bauer X-30's for $15 brand new.

The nearest ice rink is in Nashville, and while that's only 45 mins away, I can't make that trip every weekend when I'm this poor. It's mostly street hockey for me.

No ice because I live in Houston. We are the 4th biggest city in the country, and we have 4 rinks, only 3 you can play puck on. I played competitive ice from the age of 10 up until I was about 19. I was good, but never good enough to go anywhere without working at it too much, and in all honesty, my parents pushed hockey on me so hard I completely lost interest. Plus in order to play at a level that was competitive, I couldn't afford flying up North every other weekend for tourneys so I gave it up.

I went to Texas Tech and made their ice team, but I was an Architecture major and couldn't justify being on the ice, followed by a 2 hour conditioning session daily and taking 21 hours of school, so I didn't go with that either.

We just had an inline facility open back up about a month ago and I've been playing inline a lot lately. I've been playing inline for longer than I've been playing ice and I really love it so much more. I don't know if it's just the fact that it's so much more laid back, or the fact that I don't have to deal with d-bag coaches thinking every single person skating is in it to go pro. I never had an ice coach that thought we just wanted to have fun and that sort of killed it for me.

But as far as inline goes, the AIHL is putting together a team out of Houston again. I skated for the team they had last year before our old rink went under, and I plan on skating for the new team this year. If any of you all play competitive inline, I might run into you somewhere down the line.

I've played roller hockey almost my whole life, played travel hockey for most of it also. Qualified for a bunch of nationals but only went to 1 or 2. But our roller rink got "sold" to a speed skating team and they turned it into a concrete rink then backed out on buying it and they are trying to save up the $50,000 to buy new tile / sport court to put in. And our ice rink got sold and turned into a American Indoor Carting ><. So hockey around here is pretty dead right now =/ and I don't really play anymore due to school and work, plus I don't like that concrete rink.

Not a huge fan of the one95s. I have one and snapped the blade in a shoot around only after a few uses. I wound up flipping it around and putting a blade in the other end. I like the easton s16s which is actually what alot of the pros use because of how durable the stick is but easton repaints them with the s19 or eq50 paintjobs

My inline team picked up a deal with Sherbrook last season and I've been playing with the Dark One model they put out. Easily the best stick I've ever used. I prefer it to my S17. It's lighter, ten times more durable, comes in all the similar Easton blade patterns, and it's very, very well priced.

I also like the Harrow sticks, as we had a little deal with them at the start of the season. Not nearly as durable, but decent products nonetheless. Amazing gloves too.
