Hockey Equipment
OdorBalance Worked for Me... Here's The Story I recently had the chance to test out a new cleaning product for sports gear. It's called OdorBalance, and it worked really well! When I first heard from the folks down at OdorBalance, I admit I was skeptical. I really didn't think anything could touch the stink in my gear... basically, I had two doubts: RASHES: My mom used to wash my gear when I was a kid, and it would always give me a rash the first few times after being washed.

Develop Stickhandling Abilities with the X-Deviator I've mentioned this before, but there are a number of skills that can easily be developed off the ice.

Stickhandling is one of the easiest skills to work on at home.
