Exactly, and that i why this a fu*kling scam, and it should be stopped.

Wish someone would call out nhl shop/fanatics over this. 

We know these are not authentic , but 99% of other hockey interested people do not.

These are blatant lies to get people's money.

It is fake. Right?

I'm assuming Lightbringer posted pics of a legit Indo Adizero.

Unless I am missing it I don't see any place that they are claiming these are authentic "on ice" jerseys or the "same the players wear".  

The true definition of authentic is "not false or copied; genuine; real".  Maybe they are technically copied from on-ice jerseys but let's be real - in the real world that matters to like 0.0005 of the people that will buy these.  I don't think many people would be genuinely upset I'd they realIzed this isn't the on-ice jersey.  

But  not too long ago we had authentics and replicas.

so now authentic means "not fake" ?

It's not really all that different from the NFL jerseys. The jerseys the players wear are quite dissimilar from what is sold to the fans.

That's strange, I don't recall ever seeing that type of fight strap on any Reebok jersey, Indo or otherwise.  

It looks like those fake fight strap dinglebears uses to make jerseys authentic on ebay..

Ok, didn't take long. 

Ordered a precustomized Taylor Hall. Shop runner for free shipping and free return if I feel like it.

Plan is to keep it, wear until Canadian ones are available, then eBay for a fraction of the price.

Couldn't resist grabbing an early one, I'm too weak.

What is your overall impression?  The name bar looks chunky for the material it's over.  Maybe it's the stitching around it.  It certainly doesn't look "luxurious"  I think it's all those different materials with ventilation coming together at that detail.  Do you have a couple of overall pics?

And did the crest on that size 44 seem a lot smaller than on the larger sizes?

I have been informed that the quality is on par with the WCH jerseys and much better than the Indio. NOT made in Canada :(

Going to grab one home and one road Blackhawks this weekend. Keep you guys posted with pics once they arrive. 

Interesting. I found them to basically be Indo's except with Adidas branding (right down to the fight strap with white twill). Definitely not on par with the WCOH authentics at all. Not even close, frankly.

They have them:

I also have a red Devils Indo-Edge jersey that was worn by Bruce Driver a couple years back for the 1995 Cup alumni game.  It has the exact same type of fight strap pictured in the link.

It was definitely smaller than the 50 and up. They didn't have any smaller than 46 that I saw, but it was shockingly small.

Thanks for the follow up. This sucks as I only buy size 46 mostly, and were interested in the new size 42 and 44 as well. Having a mini logo is not attractive to me AT ALL :(

Guess I need to have a photo comparison of the logos on a size 50 vs 42, 44 and 46.

Anyone knows if the logos are even smaller on size 42 and 44 compared to a size 46? 

Or is it just a downgrade in size from 50 and the same for 42, 44 and 46?

In Reebok Edge 2.0, size 52 fits me perfect. For the Adidas, I tried on a 52 and 54. If I was going to buy one, it would be the 54 (prefer a little more). Downside, sleeves and body length were longer than the Edge 2.0

Overall material felt more like a Reebok premier to me. I do not own any WCoH authentics to compare.

Fight strap as mentioned in other posts isn't great. Both white and black jerseys appear to have the same strap: white strap sewn on to white twill.

Customization is again comparable to Reebok premier. I would buy blank and send out more for accurate, mainly for higher quality materials.

Didn't look at the crest too closely. 44 was just on the front of the rack which is why it was in my picture.

Appreciate the insight buddy! 

At this point, I am just hopeful that they are a higher quality than the Indio. 

Does anyone know if that button can be removed?

I could be wrong about this, but the fight strap in Lightbringer's pics appears (at least to me) to have a different fabric, and slightly smaller and more rounded buttons than the ones used on the Indo Edge in your link.

I see what you are saying.  I thought you meant overall and not those tiny nuances.  Yeah the new buttons look smaller and more rounded and the fabric seems different, but overall it is largely the same.

Another thing is that the Bruins Edge in your link has the fight strap turned so you're looking at the side which shows only a single snap.  On the other side, where you should see 2 snap bases, aren't they completely flat like on the 2.0 fight straps?  In the Indo Adizero pics, the 2 snap bases are rounded instead.  That immediately caught my attention.

I honestly think they're Indo's. It's basically the same in my view. I actually ended up cancelling my order of the two Flyers jerseys today after seeing the Sabres ones up close. They're not awful, but I don't think I'd be happy with them in the long run.

The button should be able to be removed, shouldn't be hard at all, just like the jock tags on premiers.

I'm still holding out hope that the Baron will come through with Canadian ones

 

Or that PensGear will get them, but I doubt that
