  • Breaking in a new Trapper

    I've heard and tried a number of different methods...but was wondering what everyone thought was the best way to break in a new trapper?

    Driving over it with your car, putting it in a skate oven...putting it in a toaster oven :P ...any advise you can lend would be appreciated

      My advice is to look around and use the Search function. Surely you don't think you are the first one to ask this question. This is not a flame, just trying to show you that the answers are out there (apologies to X-Files), you just have to look...just a little.


      Here are a few to get you started:

        It's also in the wrong forum.

        What is going around in cyber space?

        - Is there a stupidity flu going around?

        -Must be a new email virus that places posting in the wrong forum.



        Would someone delete this useless thread? (Yes, one of 20 mods on the BB)

          Your an idiot ryeno42. At least this guy didnt go out of his way to be a goofball such as yourself. The fact that you care soooooo much about this board and who puts what where ,by accident, is truly sad.

          I can already see you stomping around your house whining to everybody about this post on how it go put in the wrong a spot. Telling your dog:

          " You wouldnt believe it if i told you but this guy asked how to break in his glove on the goalie store web page and you know what.......he put it in the wrong forum. I mean really he put it in the WWRRROOOONNNG forum, What an idiot . Its just uncomprehendable how somebody could put it in thw WRRRROOOONG forum. Do you hear what Im saying Rover? Rover are you even listening to me?

          Your dog is probably thinking the same thing we all are "Who is this idiot?"

            As far as breaking in your glove if you can get it heated then do it. Other than that I always got my water bottle and splashed some water on the inside before i play. it loosens it up a bit.

              I did a search last week, and didn't get much insight. Seems like the most popular answer was just to open and close it a lot, when you've got time on your hands. I spent about 5 hours last week doing just that. My new trapper still needs some work, but I guess I'll just have to be patient.

                Another suggestion would be to hang it in your shower and take a looong hot shower with the door closed and no fan on to make as much steam as possible. (I remember someone on the board saying that pros just put their gear in the team steam room) This will cause it to soften up and after the shower just play with it for a while and it will loosen up. Also just tie it up or use a pad strap to cinch it tightly closed with a couple pucks in the pocket and let it sit for a couple nights. Hope this helps

                  Was your comment ultimately neccessary? There was already a guy who had posted to him to do a search. He also gave him other threads to look at. Do we really need you to enforce the fact that the guy should've done a search? You're starting to get annoying.

                        What about the guy who posts 8 a day?

                            The problem is that this is a realy basic question m and has been answered dozens if not a hundred times before now. Botts did a simple search and came up with this list he provided in a matter of minutes.

                            When someone asks a questions that has obviously been thought of before, something so basic as breaking in a glove, all a person should have to do is search and they'll find what they're looking for on the subject matter. Now, anytime in the future after this thread, anyone who DOES a search will come across this drivel, and have to sift through it, along with countless others, to get a decent answer.

                            THAT is why this thread should be deleted. We have more than enough threads and information on this subject, which means apparently its already overloaded with crap that someone will have to search through to get a good answer. Adding another worthless thread about it just keeps compounding the problem.

                            That said, Mods... Ryeno... someone.... please delete this thread.
