    So as some of you know I run a subscription box for hockey stuff, it started out as a way to get items that you cant really get as they are too expensive to get in small numbers, my question is what items would you like for hockey but cant get currently?

    International and club kits. The closest I have at the moment is a Bloemendaal training top.

    I'd love a stick that tackles cleanly every time!

    I have looked into it, the manufacturers say the problem is user error...sounds like avoiding the issue to me but i will keep looking

    Replica shirts are a big one for me, but then, part of the joy is finding them in obscure places, or for unfancied teams (such as Gladbacher HTC way back in 2006). In the meantime I'll just wear my KHC Dragons away shirt with pride.

    MOAR CHAMOIS.

    I need it in my life but fail to understand why it costs so much (comparatively). Is it really worth £4-7 a go? Really? Is this how economics works?

    That's just the cost people seem to quote me when I want to buy some.

    Although Shammy Shack, for example, are between £3.99 and £5.99 a grip ex postage; Barringtons are £4.50 a go; Boundary Sports are £5.00.

    Maybe that's what the market dictates costs should be, it just seems expensive to me. Perhaps I should stop being a cheapskate though...

    There were progrips in the first box. I have some extras if you want some grips at a discount

    I do 3 for £8.50! Though personally I prefer the thinner tacky tennis overgrips, I found 30 of them (need two per stick) on amazon for £15 so thats me covered in that department for a while.

    Back to the original topic, team kits is a big one but I've got most of them covered through my trips to hockey events.

    Other things would be coaching aids like goal cover, ramps, coaching boards etc. Though these things are quite big to be shipping in a box!

    I'm waiting on goal covers coming in. Ramps and coaching boards are things I'm in discussions with companies about as well.
