    In all honesty I am looking for a goalkeeper stick that is 37.5 or longer. Gryphon have made all there’s 36.5. When doing some drills with juniors I use my goalie stick limits power and saves changing sticks constantly.

    So if you know any or have any half decent affordable gk sticks then please let me know. I am final year uni student so on a budget. However do play yorkshire prem to give idea of why need some quality to it.

    £145 for a GK stick? Even OBO's Straight As is £55 less than that.
    With no visible differences, I don't think most people could ever justify that cost!

    Other than the fact it's got the "Fortitude" name - I see nothing there that screams "BUY ME" - Other than it has chevrons on it to look bigger of course.

    For £145 I'd be expecting a "no goals conceded" guarantee, I think I'll stick to The Wall at £100 less!

    Would people be interested in a Christmas mystery box? £25 including UK shipping (little bit extra for overseas I'm afraid) with a random assortment of items if I say the minimum value of £30 gear per box

    The Christmas mystery box is a good idea BossFHockey, people love goodies and £25 is a great price for most people. We are doing something similar with our Christmas Boxes (also at £25 plus free delivery), they contain a beanie, shin pad liners, 2 grips, 2 wristbands (festival type bands), a keyring and some stickers. These have gone down really well, so if you do a box as well I'm sure lots of people would love it :)

    Heres the link to our box if anyone is interested - https://www.exclusivehockey.co.uk/c...deals/products/gift-box?variant=3845098045471

    Merry Christmas (I know it's still November)... :)

    Oooooh I hadn't given it much thought, tiger stripes would be amazing (as would most animal patterns), along with random multicolours/patterns/stars

    I will look into it but if I can't get a "smock" would you settle for and over sizes sports t-shirt? Long or short sleeved? Considering doing a 1 off GK box with some training aids for keepers but might be a little more then the normal box

    Over sized sports shirt is what I use for training currently so yep :D I prefer long sleeved as it keeps my arm guards in place better. I'd be very interested in a GK box, getting anything decent for keepers can be a bit of a nightmare normally

    I still have my uglee shirt somewhere I mostly use long sleeved shirts these days. One thing that made the uglee shirt so good was the material, the fabric was very thick and durable. I have played with a acid long sleeved shirt from OBO with the same fabric but when it was long sleeve it was way to hot.

    There are two things I wish I had bought in the OBO sale 1) more uglee shirts 2) a pair of proform legguards, I have always wanted to try them even if they might not be that good.

    This is the famous uglee shirt
    I think each shirt was different so you never knew what colours you would get.
