Low Income Budget — A guide

It can be hard living for a family to live on a limited amount of income. While life may throw some hardships to make life move ahead, there are ways to be able to pay the expenses and get the necessities required for living. Here are some tips to learn how to live on a low income budget, and still enjoy a comfortable life.

 Life insurance is not only for the wealthy! On the contrary, a person with low-income need should also buy a policy just as a well-off person. There is no reason to postpone purchasing a policy even if one is on a low budget. The benefits of some low premium insurance policies offer a decent coverage and financial protection for the family. Term life insurance policy is a simple policy for tight budget persons.

 Household budget is a good practice for a low income family because a budget helps to give a financial picture of how the family is doing even when your financial picture looks the darkest. The income and the expenses need to be balanced. If the expenses are more than the income, expenditure has to be cut.

 The needs and wants of the family have to be distinguished. There are some obvious items are cell phones, housing, electricity, water, telephone, TV, groceries, education and other household expenditure. Entertainment should be a part of living, but decision should be made by enjoying at the minimal cost and by using discounts or free passes.

 In case, after reducing all expenses still the budget runs above income some steps need to be raise income. Working from home or taking up a part time work can be helpful to a certain extent.

 Cut back on the amount of energy you use in your home. Use energy efficient light bulbs, and always turn off lights after leaving a room.

 Shop at second hand stores for any clothing that your family may need and buy only what is required.

 Collect some money in a fun jar by putting in the small change… This money can be used to treat for dessert, dinner, a movie, or something that the family would like to have. While income may be low, you can still enjoy something fun and entertaining along with the life’s hardships.

How to Shoot a Low-Budget Horror Film

**How to Shoot a Low-Budget Horror Film**

Ever wondered how to make your first low-budget horror flick? DCODE how to save on your cost.

Warning: The following video contains mature content and disturbing images. Viewer discretion is advised.

Warning: Do not try the stunts shown at home.

#DCODE #scienceofthemovies #horrorfilms
Warning! – Are you filming this? It started so innocently. I just wanted some do-it-yourself filmmaking
tips from my Buddy Erik Beck, how could I know my love for movie science would lead
to my blood-soaked demise? This time I’m going to show you how to create
a throwing knife effect. Oh. That should have been my first clue. It’s a really simple prop. And this is super cheap and super easy. Okay. Erik Beck is like a Midas of the DIY effects
world. On the website Indymogul he teaches people
how to turn random junk into cinematic gold. Most of the supplies cost a couple of bucks,
but there are a few indispensables you should have before starting any Indymogul project. A hot glue gun and paint. And for a horror movie, Pola’s famous homemade
blood from earlier in the show. It’s basically you need to get two matching
toy knives. All right. I actually already pre-prepped one of these,
but I can give you a quick breakdown of how I built it. Okay. One of these fake blades is for the bad guy. The other one, which Erik already prepped,
is going to be rigged up to me. And the cool thing about these toy knives,
which is why I got them, is they’re actually hollow inside and it makes it really easy
to stick this piece in. I have some cardboard here, but what I, what’s
better is like a little, like a think piece of cardstock. If you’re using cardboard, attach the knife
with hot glue, which big plus, looks gruesome and coagulated. It’ll melt smooth and you kind of go through,
dab it and just make it look extra gross. If you want to upgrade, use sturdier cardstock
like Erik’s pre-made rig. Drill a couple of holes in it and attach to
the L-bracket with nuts and bolts before hot gluing. And then obviously you go over it with some
paint. Yep, a little bit of red paint. Next up, the star of any gore fest, the blood. For the blood system, this is going to be
also super simple. This is a five-ounce syringe. You can get these online at like a medical
supply store or something like that. It’s not a ton of blood, but if you like
pulse it and just. Yeah that’s what we want. Exactly. This will, you know, stick on right here when
you’re ready to go, but you have to make sure you get the right tube to fit your syringe, obviously. Just the right spurt factor, Erik plugged
up the exit hole with glue and sliced through the side of the tube with an X-Acto. You can just sort of you can just pump it. Oh, that sprays out really nice. Yeah, it gets a little more like natural. It looks like it’s coming out in like three
or four streams. Exactly. You know, it stretches out. It’ll be like this. Okay, so yeah, there’s plenty. And then you’ll be off-camera pushing the
syringe. Yup. The last step is to just hot glue this onto
the knife rig. A little more. Don’t be shy. More? That’s good? It’s pretty much done. This has just got to dry for a little bit. You got to hold that for a while? Yeah, someone’s got to hold it. Okay I’ll, I’ll let you hold that. I’m going to go get into character. Actors. Lights, camera, onscreen warning. – – – First up, we shoot the part before I get popped
with the cleaver. Not to name-drop, but we’ve got some serious
A-list professionals here. White medical tape. Secure the knife with some tape. Put on a second shirt to hide the rigging,
and we’re just about ready. Now, for the camera trick. We’re going to shoot the cleaver in the
killer’s hand and use a camera trick called a whip pan. See how it whipped away? It looks like he threw it, but it’s still
in his hand. Cut to a different set-up, we whip pan to
me with the cleaver rig already hooked up. When you edit it together it looks seamless
as you are about to find out. Don’t worry, April. I’ll protect you. No, Rodney. The cleaver killer’s still out there. It’s okay. I’m going to come back. And when I do, I’m finally going to marry
you. Huh? Rodney! Why? And cut. Okay, yeah, cool effect, man. Yeah, cool. I’m glad you liked it. Oh, thanks a lot for helping today. Yeah You know what? I’m going to head out. I got some videotapes All right. I got to work on.

a Disney vacation can be the trip of a lifetime however the cost of accommodations transportation park tickets and dining can all add up quite quickly these tips are designed for you to have a magical time at Disney World while saving yourself a great deal of money tip number one avoid peak seasons if you travel to Disney during the offseason hotels will be cheaper and the parks will be much less crowded in general January September November and early December are the least busy times of year remember that Disney will always be busier and therefore more expensive during the holidays this includes March Break Easter break summer vacation Thanksgiving and Christmas tip number 2 consider staying in a non Disney hotel there are plenty of hotels not operated by Disney that are still located within the Disney grounds the ones on Hotel Plaza Boulevard are just a short walk away from Downtown Disney depending on the time of year many of these hotels can range from 100 to 200 dollars per night while the Disney resorts start at 250 dollars per night in addition many of these hotels offer complimentary shuttles to and from the theme parks which eliminates the need for a rental car and avoids parking fees tip number 3 purchase multi-day tickets the price of Disney tickets starts at $85 for a single day but as you purchase more days the price per day drop substantially for example afford a ticket works out to just over $60 per day remember though you're only saving money if you actually plan on using all the days you purchase because tickets expire 14 days after their first juice tip number 4 use the park hopper option wisely the park hopper option allows you to visit more than one park in a day and cost an additional fifty five dollars to add on to your tickets one way this could save you money is by park hopping between two or more parks each day allowing you to see all four parks in two days this would cost about two hundred and twenty three dollars while the four days standard ticket would cost two hundred and forty three dollars however if you're not intending on park hopping don't buy the option or you'll just be spending unnecessarily tip number five bring your own water and snacks the cost of food and drinks at Disney theme parks can really add up instead of buying them at the parks bring snacks along with you like grapes carrot sticks crackers or Ginola bars these will keep you full in between meals and keep you busy while in line if you also bring your own water bottle you can refill it from drinking fountains and avoid paying 250 per bottle while at the parks tip number six share large meals many of the meals sold at the parks are quite large and you may be able to split one meal between two people in Tomorrowland cosmic rays Starlight café sells a half chicken meal for just under ten dollars that's the perfect size for sharing I hope these tips will help make your Disney vacation memorable without breaking the bank be sure to check out the other videos in my Disney series and if you liked what you saw please subscribe to my channel bye for now and have a magical day

★ A bit about me! ★

I’m an Australian currently living in Japan, and loving it! My channel has loads of DIY videos relating to acne and acne scarring, because that is something I have suffered with for many years (and continue to suffer with). I decided to turn my negatives into positives, and share what I’d learned about this skin condition with all of you. So if you’re new to my channel and wondering why there’s so many videos about skin care, that’s why!

These days however, my focus has changed. I was accepted to the JET Programme in 2014, and my new life chapter began! I’m currently living in a semi-rural prefecture, as an ALT at 3 senior high schools. I drive a lot, go out a lot, and enjoy living my life in gorgeous Japan. I’m now kind of a J-Vlogger, showing you my everyday life in my weekly vlogs. But I also want to keep the essence of my original channel purpose, too, so that’s why there are additional weekly videos about skin care, beauty and life in Japan. Hope this clears some things up, and gives all you cutie newbies some info about me too! Thanks for tuning in, and please feel free to message me any time on my various social links. Cheers!

hi everybody and welcome to the first video in a series of two that is all about what is Japan really like today I just got back from three weeks in Japan where we travel all over the country doing incredible things PS I highly recommend the place so this first video is going to deal with the nitty gritty I was talking about the food travel packing and accommodation the second video is going to get into different cities things to do the culture in the people sorry if I'm talking quite fast I have a lot to get through so let's get started so how do you get accommodations in Japan it's easy it's google it honestly if you're heading to a particular city what I would recommend is that you just Google you know accommodation in that city if they're staying there for a week or more you might want to look into hiring an apartment instead of staying in hotels have a look into what the actual apartment or hotel includes does it include Internet does it include breakfast maybe even dinner there are loads and loads of really well priced hotels and different accommodation and something that some people often stea is ryokans as well as two main ways that we found accommodation over there was air B&B and Google Japan is of course famous for their rail system so I do recommend before you go over there that you grab yourself one of these babies it is a Japan Rail Pass now this is a JR pass it will allow you to travel on the Jo line all around the country and in the major cities now depending how long are you going to Japan for this thing ain't cheap this could work out to be over $800 okay so it's a lot of money but trust me it is well worth it you can use this jr pass to pass through all sorts of different cities all over the country and let me tell you what when you're in Tokyo you're going to be encountering loads of different rail systems let me show you okay you can see that there are loads and loads of different rail companies that own loads of different lines even in the one city so that's why these sorts of things are very very useful because then you can travel on the one system all over the city and plus get from one city to a completely different one very very easily but do remember that the main cities often have their preferred method of personal transportation like in Tokyo it's all about the trains you take trains everywhere that's where it's at but you go to Kyoto and it's all about the buses and bike this is the kyoto city bus travel map okay there is method to the mayhem it's a little bit chaotic it can get very confusing and you could possibly get lost but do you remember that a lot of the important signs that you will need to know are still in English even in the audio just listen they've got an a Japanese audio and then straight afterward that's also got a English just keep your eyes peeled in those listening ears listening I feel like such a teacher right now and you'll get to your destination just fine I'm just gonna cover the packing thing very very briefly but what I do recommend is that you pack light oh yeah I went through hell not all the stations have escalators and elevators do pack light do bring a bag that has wheels on a spring only what you need and expect to buy when you're over there now this is one of the big things that I was sort of very nervous about and sort of stumbling over before we even went but it wasn't that bad I was very pleasantly surprised quite a few people do know English it might be a very very little they might sort of only get the point if you're doing all the bodily movements and the hand movements at the same time or pointing to pictures you'll be able to get through it a lot easier if you know you're hiragana katakana and some really basic vocabulary I was saying assuming my sin and I got the COS a mass all the freaking time be polite just polite if you are SuperDuper polite look this country it just it runs on politeness okay so just be polite and you'll be a-okay my people do you think about Japan and they think they're going to get a certain sort of experience if you're after a certain sort of experience research a little hard out about what you really want to experience when you're in Japan cities are very very different like Tokyo is definitely all about the shopping the technology you want to see the more traditional side of Japan hit up Kyoto it is very traditional there are shrines and temples absolutely everywhere so basically just think about what do you want to experience in Japan traditional or modern plan ahead so you can get the most out of this fantastic country is it incredibly expensive some of it is it really depends on what you want to do what you want to experience you could probably save up a couple of grand and head over there and do some fantastic shopping but you could go over there with you know maybe five hundred to a thousand dollars and still have a pretty good time it really depends on how long that you're staying there and if you've already pre paid for your accommodation and that's sort of a thing conversion rates between the countries varies a lot you know I can't say to you when is a good time to buy because it's impossible to find out but generally this is what I went off 100 Japanese yen is equal to about one Australian dollar so their money does look a little bit different of course this is a five yen piece this is 10 yen this is obviously a 50 yen piece that's you're a hundred yen and the other one that I don't have here is a 500 yen piece 500 yen is actually about five dollars that's is why it can be easy to spend your money because you'll see all this coin each and your person you'll be like oh you know I've got heaps of you know it doesn't cost me anything it can add up can you use the credit cards over there yes you can but not everywhere a lot of places don't accept credit cards except for the major department stores and major tourist destinations so more you might want to do is take out a big chunk of money take it to a currency converter in your country then when you go overseas you've got that money it's all set ready to go then when you're over there you can maybe get out money once or twice when you're over there but do keep in mind that your banks often charge not only a percentage but also a fee for you to take out money when you're overseas food is everywhere in Japan and it is delicious okay the Japanese they're you know they're a bit of a perfectionist Society so a lot of that food is just so top-notch this is something that you might want to think about budgeting for though because well depending on how long you're saying that I know I keep on saying that but it really does depend on how long you're staying there if you're in an apartment for example you might have your own little kitchen or a gas cooktop or something like that so think about going to your local supermarket there in Japan and getting out all sorts of different food to make at home it can be a lot cheaper and a lot of fun or you can stick to the noodle bars but noodle bars you probably get a good meal and a drink for around ten dollars ten to twelve dollars if you even go into restaurants and that sort of a thing I know we went to an Italian restaurant when we're in Kyoto and we're able to get the lunch set so that was about three different entrees and main meal and a drink and that cost around $22 it's not that expensive I think it's just really expensive when you start going to those fancy-schmancy places that sell the really top-notch Japanese traditional foods so if you're trying to save a little bit of money when you're over there please do hit up your supermarkets and also your convenience stores because you can often get really good quality meals for very cheap supermarkets like any supermarket I suppose they put that fresh food that they've just made on sale at the end of the day just try and get rid of it but it is just so good and very very cheap sometimes there's like twenty thirty forty percent off some incredible meals and convenience stores you know you can get your chicken and rice and all the rest of it there and they'll even microwave it for you in the shop one of the things people often want to check out when they're in Japan especially in Tokyo is maybe some themed restaurants these are the sorts of things which may be a little bit steep but there could be quite a fun experience I know we went to a maid cafe that was top-notch I was amazing but it not only costs you for the food it costs you for the experience I think it was about ten dollars for us to spend an hour there and now we had to buy a meal and a drink as well so you could go the traditional route in Japan and eat all the sushi sea cucumber eel sea urchin it wasn't quite my cup of tea so I avoided that as much as possible but you can do that if you want quite a few touristy places also sell their own you know food things that are specific to them like when we went to Miyajima and they had these tiny little maple cakes there that had their own filling in them they were delicious and I ate way too many of them oh my god but just to let you know anybody out there who is gluten intolerant vegan or vegetarian you're going to be way out of luck I'm sorry in Japan because unless you know how to say can I have vegetarian or vegan or I'm gluten intolerant unless you know how to properly say those things and actually have a conversation with your waiter or anybody there about having a different sort of meal you're just going to live on rice that's it we went to an economy hockey place in Tokyo and every single okonomiyaki that we could have had there had pork every single one of them except for one which said was vegetarian but it still had salmon that's what it's like over there they eat everything and meat is in pretty much everything so yeah unless you know how to say to your waiter I can't eat this thing can I have something else you're out of luck the last thing I want to talk about on this video is shopping now one of the big questions is is it expensive yes and no it really comes down to what you're buying and what your budget is like the thing is it can be easy to shop around while you're on a budget there are hundred yen shops which sell loads and loads of wonderful little goodies for very very cheap and they can be fantastic little things to bring back to your family and friends if you're after more traditional things Kyoto is fantastic for that because they have so many temples and shrines and all those places sell wonderful little traditional goodies if you have some more modern things and technology hit up Tokyo that is a V place to be Akihabara is electric town that's where you want to go for all your your technology and gaming needs Shibuya has the ten nine stores there and is fantastic for clothing Harajuku is also fantastic for clothing and knickknacks and all that sort of a thing but it is a little bit younger depending when you're going as well we were in Tokyo just after New Year's and that's when they had their 7 day sale so that started from about that second and a went right through and though that was brilliant for buying clothes so depending on what you're after can it be cheap yes totally it can be very inexpensive to buy things in Japan but if you're looking to buy some really nice silk kimonos and all the rest of the really traditional gear or even technology it can be very expensive so thank you for tuning in for part 1 part 2 is going to go over things like culture the people and what's really like to be in Japan leave me in the comments down below about anything that you want to know more about have I missed something here just let me know put a comment down there and I will get back to you like you're all flippin fabulous and I will talk to you later bye

Part 2 –

How to select the right ice hockey skate stiffness

hey guys Chris from hockey tutorial and today we're recording in Demon's extreme which is an ice hockey store in Chelmsford and we're going to be going through the basics of if you're beginner to ice hockey and you want to get your kit so we're talking for ice hockey kit we're going to be giving you the basics what you need to keep in mind while you're buying your kit and helping you out and giving you some points and tips along the way so the first thing we're going to start off with is the most important part of your ice hockey kit which is going to be your skates now that we've done a lot of videos in the past on skates the links will be in the video description below and also put two links up there for differences on stiffness and also making model and things like that all about there but a quick basic and guide is what you need to keep in mind with the skates is that there's so many different models and all of these different models have different traits and they're normally good for different kinds of skaters a quick idea is these graphs over here or a marmite kind of skate people either love them or absolutely hate them so that's an important thing to keep in mind when you're looking at skates with your vowel Supremes like these ones over here they're normally kind of targeted at skaters that have slightly wide feet than what's considered the average and your vapers which is like this skate over here are normally targeted at skaters that have sort of normal feet or it could be described as a narrower foot so what you need to keep in mind as well as the different styles of fits that the different manufacturers offer you is also the different levels that the skates are intended for these ones over here are bauer supreme 160s now there's a lot that goes into these and skate levels as I said there'll be a link in the video description above and also a link in the annotation above and below where you need to keep in mind that the different levels of skates are intended for different people of different abilities but also people of different sizes and Heights and Bill's so if you're say a 20 stone player that's about six foot going for a basic skate like for example views 1.0 s4 vapors would not do you any good even though you're a beginner skater because of your build and your size you need to go for a much much stronger skate for example like these X 3.0 switch would be an intermediate boot meaning the structure of the skate is much more strong it offers you a lot more stiffness and will be able to hold and support you on the ice properly these are the different things you need to keep in mind while you're looking the skates but as I said annotation will be more decent above and another video link description below they'll be more detailed there so in terms of how much you want to spend on a pair of skates if you're a beginner going to be playing hockey maybe once or twice a week not too heavy I'd recommend going for something like the supreme one or 60s depending on your fit so you'll have even spending roughly around the 250 mark 200 to 250 mark if you're a fairly fairly light player very young say nine year old or anywhere underneath that a junior will be looking to spend sort of around the 100 to 150 mark that would be okay if you're a slightly bigger player and adult but you're learning and you're a beginner you're going to be needing to spend a little bit more money to get that extra support slightly step the structure of escape which is around the 250 to 300 mark in anyone taller than that or heavier all with a bigger build you're going to be looking to go much higher sort of the 300 to 350 mark so one way to take a look at now is I'm going to be the sticks different choices a lot to confuse a player so we're going to break it down for you and hopefully give you a bit more information about them for me I'd say this is probably the second most important bit of equipment when you're looking at overall ice hockey gear you're going to have with you what we're going to be taking a look at are the different lengths of the sticks the different grips the Flex the shape of the blade and the different sticks that are out there which one would be best for you if you're learning in your beginner frame for beginners I always recommend going for a wooden stick first reason for that is because wind sticks are nice and cheap when compared to the other varieties of sticks that you have out there you're going to bang the stick up a lot while you're learning how to play the sport so being that you're not spending too much money on it means you don't have to worry about your pocket and you can just focus on the game which is definitely something that you want to consider another reason for that is that wooden sticks also give you a great feel for where the puck is without having to look down which is definitely something to keep in mind in terms of the Flex if you're a beginner but your infant or a child we're going to go for a flex between 40 and 50 if you're the teenager to an intermediate level or even a beginner then where you want to go for a Flex between 60 and 75 a regular flex for somebody that's sort of an intermediate and anywhere above that point would be 80 to 85 and if you want to go any higher than that if you're a really big player say again your weight in your size comes – plane that sticks a lot if you're say a 14 Stein plan that's about six or seven foot sixty flex is not going to be strong enough for you you'll break the sticks and you keep them spending a lot of money on them so you want to go for something sort of between 85 to 100 flex if you will that sort of size and that sort of weight so that's another thing to keep in mind so one of the other points you need to keep in mind is definitely going to be the shape of the blade you have to maintain shapes of blades you either have square tires or rounded toes the square toes are normally recommend it for defenseman because it's really easy to kind of get the putts that are stuck against the boards and also get passes that are from pucks of the sliding against the board's due to the square shape of the blade but on round ablated square blades it's all personal preference the more you play the sport the more you learn and adapt to different styles of sticks and the more you'll be able to pick out what works best for you I'm also going to take a look at the kind of grips that you get on different sticks now with the beginner or basic own sticks you nobody get a lot of choice in terms of grip they normally have quite slippery surfaces not on offering an extreme amount of friction to the hand can slide up to up and down them quite comfortably but as you move up to the one-piece sticks the carbon fiber sticks you have a lot of different grips some that literally stop your hands for moving some people prefer that but again that's going to be personal preference this is why it's so important to come into a hockey store to get your equipment rather than buying it online because when you come into a store you get to feel what the other product feels I can get to play around with it looking the store that I'm in right now dealing extreme they have a synthetic room with a goal that you can go in there shoot some parks play with the sticks see if that's what's right for yourself which is definitely a possible buying it online because you don't want to buy stick on one that cost you X amount of money it gets home and you find out it's the wrong product it's just why I'm always going to stress come into your stores but these videos just give you a bit more information so you know what to expect when we come in but from there we're going to take a look at the shape of the curve of the old sticks blade you have a lot of different curves but again with beginner sticks you only get what they call p19 code or a sake curve which is kind of great curve in rounder you can do to sort of slap shots being able to lift the puck up it's a great point for you beginners to start off with until they learn and develop and see what they prefer but again if you want more information about sticks the different curves the different angles all of this kind of stuff over here including the flex points we have a video the annotation up there that give you a lot more detail on me so we're going to be taking a look at now on these bloody pads over here you can see there's a lot of different makes once again a lot of different models different ranges we're going to go over what you're getting for the extra amount of money and if you're a beginner what ones should you go for so we've got two over here two different makes we've got CCM over here and we've got a Horry of pads over here in terms of it they're both intended for the same level beginner to basic intermediate and in terms of the different pads or what you're getting for that student money these ones over here the warrior loans cost thirty four ninety nine the CCM arrives over here costs 40 399 the cesium is a much more recognizable brand and you won't pain a little bit more for that but also in terms of the pads when you go up in price what you're getting is a little bit extra comfort maybe a little bit more range of motion so it's a lot easier to move around in those pads but and also a slight extra bit of padding so you can see over here of this warrior one fairly soft around the Liam ribcage over here in the center point and these ones over here give you this extra type of support which is a bit more stiff so you are getting a tiny bit extra so when you go up in pads from intermediate to advanced what you're paying for is the name of course you're paying for a bigger range of motion more comfort and mobility while you're moving around in the pads and a little bit of extra padding but unlike the skates you're not paying for in lighter product these the more padding the more support you get the heavy of the product is going to get as we said beginners in this case you're going to be looking to spend about thirty four ninety nine to forty five pounds which is include both of these kits over here so take a look at these ones over here you can see these are intermediate ones over here these ones are more advanced in terms of the price the CCM you +8 kit over here this is the twelve eighths behind it this one grab four $74.99 and you can see we get four that is much more padding under here in terms of the pads they're much more mobile you have a lot more joints or in bits of material that are attached together rather than all of it being in just one big block which gives you a bigger range of motion better mobility and comfort while you're in it so this is the sort things that you're paying for when you go up in price point you're paying for much more support much more protection because you might be playing at the type of hockey that involves checking or a lot contact and also paying for a lot of mobility so the higher you go in price you're getting a lot more range of motion more comfort and a lot more padding but keep in mind as I'm stressing unlike the skates you don't get the lighter part with the pads they might be roughly about the same weight or even slightly heavier due to the extra pounds so in terms of the shorts over here again with price point what do you need to look out for when you're buying a pair there's a lot of different makes and models and as always you're going to be paying for those makes and models a quick example you have these over here these are by warrior this family shirts over here at cost $64.99 they're intended for beginners over here you have CCM u plus v Zorro 5s that again intended for beginners and make off $74.99 so you can see there's a price increase just because of the name they both offer the exact same amount of padding with the exact same amount of support the same range of motion but just because of the two different names you're paying a lot more for that the only other thing you need to keep in mind is what sort of fits these different brands have which again is why it's so important to come into store before you select which one you want online come into store get fitted and then see which one works out best for me but as you go up in the different browsers all you're really getting is increased support increased protection because as you know me go up in bands or inner models this level of hockey that you're playing gets much more severe normally you get a lot more contact in the sport as well hence why you need more pads but unlike the skates as you pay more for a product it doesn't get lighter with pads it gets heavier because you haven't wear padding more protection but what you do get is an increase in mobility so the higher up you go over my marble the more mobility equipment will be more easier B to move around inside it so the next thing we'll be taking a look at is going to be your shin and knee pads and also your elbow pads we'll start off for these ones all these are beginner to intermediate level em elbow pads and one thing that you're going to be getting as you move up in different levels is you're going to be getting more comfort more support and protection and more mobility so I'll take like a business over here these are beginner to intermediate so you're going to be looking to spend between 40 and 50 pounds to get your first set now what you're paying for when you go up in different models and different brands as we said mobility support and protection quick example of that the CCM zero sentence if I show you these very very quickly with these over here you can see that in terms of mobility you only have two points at this elbow pad that can move this is all one piece and you that flex point right there and that's it I put these down these are the zero sevens and if I show you me zero nines over here which are assumed sure you can see two months up you can see that the mobility in this is much much better you have this piece which can move individually to this piece which again will be individually this piece over here you get three individual different pieces in increasing your mobility and your comfort so you'll be a lot more flexible while you're using these so in these over here I think I forgot to mention with the elbow pads is with these the higher up you go in different models not only the more support you getting the more mobility but the weight of the products will increase slightly as well take a look at the knee and shin pads the same thing stands these are the 140s these would be good for beginners if it's your first pair or if you're an intermediate player again needs to be on more than ideal and price point for these you're going to be looking to spend fifty to sixty pounds anything above that you'll be looking towards intermediate to top-end style and remember with the top-end stuff if you're not playing for contact hockey then it's pointless having them you're just spending money on it because of the name and because of the endorsements for the hockey players which is why they're so expensive but what you get when you go up in price point movies from the different models you get more support more protection more shock absorption but again keep in mind that's going to increase the weight slightly but you also get a more anatomical fitting piece of equipment so it will contour and wrap to the shape of your body much more effectively making it much more comfortable to use so I'm going to take a look at now is helmets the difference between them and of course the price wing so again the same thing stand with your helmets as well a base point or the price that you want to start off with at the beginning if you're starting out is going to be 14 hours again to about fifty to sixty pounds that will give you a good helmet keep in mind all of these have to go through the same tests and to make them certified to use on the ice so you know you're going to be getting this level of basic protection guaranteed regardless of how much you spend but just to give you a sort of price point between sort of 49 to 50 pounds is where you want to spend time at run sperm in the press pair but again when you go up in the different models we're going to show you just the bauer range over here but the same thing stands for all in the different range while you get paying for is ventilation comfort also the secureness or the type of fit that you get and also named as always but in terms of comfort we'll show you exactly what only line like for example this helmet over here this is the 9900 hour which is pretty much any top-end helmet and what you're getting with this one over here as you can see an inside is an incredible amount of protection over there plenty of pads with extra pads in the middle of those pads as crazy as that sounds to increase the level of confidence support you get you also get these adjustable clips at the back if you can see that which move the base of the helmet in order for it to copy had a lot more comfortably and to fit a lot more securely with the baseline helmet you're not going to get this sort of level of detail or attention to detail and comfort moving up from there again as I said you get an incredible amount of pads on the inside to make it much more comfortable to use and you can see the starting of it in terms of how much of ventilation it has is incredible there's plenty of ventilation holes over there keeping you nice and dry and comfortable while you're on the ice this is the stuff that you can expect from a top-end helmet and we'll compare that to a baseline helmet if I put this down this one over here is the bauer 4500 which is sort of an intermediate to baseline helmet if we turn that on the inside you can see the level of conflict you get on those with pretty basic it's just one large piece of foam that's been cut into pretty much two or three separate pieces wrapping around the inside of that helmet so you do get the support and security but with this top and helmet on this side of the head you get sort of shock absorption so when you get hit the impact is spread around the helmet to reduce the level of compassion or the amount of risk in you getting concussions but with this one you don't get that sort of protection you can see that it's pretty basic you don't get those clips that I showed you at the bottom there even if it's the exact same make because this is a more based on to beginner level helmet and again with the ventilation you can see you don't have all the ventilation charts going around the sides it's pretty basic but you still did get that basic amount which is good enough for you and you're starting out so another point to mention which is very important is that in terms of the helmet itself you're paying around 50 pounds for your first sort of intermediate to basic or beginner level helmet you're only going to get the helmet for that 50 pounds if you want to get a combo set which includes the helmet and the cage to keep your face protected and well ventilated you're looking at about seventy four ninety-nine that's going to be the helmet and the cage they're definitely worth having you don't want to take apart to the face and the keeping in mind the visors only covers half you face you might have seen that over here you can see that the it features a visor that only covers the eyes and sort of the tip of your nose it doesn't protect your mouth your chin which is definitely important you'd only lose teeth so $74.99 give you the visor protects everything keeps you all ventilated $74.99 a good price point so last but not least but also they'll be taking a look at the gloves your first pair of gloves are going to be looking to spend around fifty to sixty hours that will give you a good pair of gloves very decent allow you to get used to the using the stick and the feel of the gloves while using the stick while you're nervous but what you want to keep in mind when you're paying for sort of you know hundreds of pounds for different gloves and the things that you're painful is going to be the brand and the styling the name is going to be the biggest price point that you find the bigger going name the more that you have to fork out for cash mobility which is in terms of how comfortable how flexible you can move your fingers while you're inside the gloves and the next thing is going to be the support instruction or the overall comfort of the glove so quick example these are bauer supreme 120s these are a nice beginner level glove they fit on my hand very very nicely giving me enough room for my fingers to breathe they're fairly mobile as you can see there can be my fingers quite easily and they give me a good feel for the glove well also I'm sorry a good feel for the stick while I'm using the gloves and also they're quite well protected is you can see right there take a look at these ones over here these are the Eastern RS which are a top-end scaped escape air hockey glove these ones over here give me an incredible good feel while I'm in there nice and comfortable you can actually the padding in the inside head feels incredible very comfortable in terms of how much mobility I have you can see that to me my fingers very very well they feel like just normal gloves that you'd wear if your fingers work on terms of the styling you can see that it looks much much better loads of nice sublimated designs which are built into the material so they would fade or wear away as you use them and you can see that they have an incredible amount of protection outside there which is exactly what you'd expect from the top-end glove these are the sort clubs that you find NHL players using so what I just wanted to show you up close over here is if you look closely to these gloves which is coming into the mobility factor you can see that this over here for one finger is completely one-piece there's no break in the middle there or a sort of a flex point for your finger to be able to move independently which means these would be quite stiff these are the supreme 120s as we said this is a beginner the glove it'll be good for you to get the basics with but as you can see it is quite restricting I'll show you a comparison with the top-end glove again over here I have the Eastern RS for you you can see with these ones that you have your fingers are allowed to move completely independently there's nice flex points all between there with extra padding so your mobility inside these girls would be much much more improved when compared to the other ones that we just showed you and as well as the pavilion design as we said all sublimated patterns over here that very nice and extra padding this is these are the differences that you can expect when you go from beginner to intermediate to advanced so if you wondered how much a beginner pair of gloves cost as compared to an advanced pair the bauer supreme one 20s retail for $59.99 and the RS which are the top end glove retail for 150 $9.99 so you can see there's a massive price difference in terms of what you get all your painful and also there's quite a significant difference in terms of the features that you're getting but if it's just for recreational hockey you don't need to go above intermediate so please keep that in mind and save yourselves a lot of money so after shopping around Diamond extreme the total that we've come out with which is a baseline to give you an idea of the minimum you're going to be spending to keep the player out roughly my size on about five eight nine five nine to kill a player up – size with basic equipment you're looking at six hundred and seventy pounds this price is based on everything that you're going to need to get on the ice including the helmet including the grill that goes over the helmet your girdle to keep your general area safe and also the sweat suit which was underneath the pads everything the player needs this is based on getting all of the same equipment from the same manufacturer so you pads the helmet everything from the same manufacturer for example Cynthiana pads knee pads skates by buying everything from the same manufacturer that reduces the price if you mix and match from different manufacturers to get more custom look or to just get things that you've seen on TV or you're friends with that will increase the price so keep in mind buy through the same manufacturer save yourself some money this is all baseline equipment just to get a player started but one thing I will say is be sure that you get the right pair of skates the price that I've given you is based on a pair of beginner to intermediate level skates $249.99 four pair of C oven the Bauer Vapor X 3 windows which are good intermediate skate with cesium's you could go for something like a CCM 0 6 to 0-8 those are a good intermediate level skates which will last you for a while it makes more sense to buy something that's gonna last rather than buying something that's only gonna get you by for a few months and then you'll find yourself with a hockey still needing to be placed in that area quickly all of the quotations and prices for all of the products that we've gone over will be in the link description so if you're looking to pick up your kit you'll have an idea license from this store over here as I always say I do recommend cutting into
