Edge 2.0 Material Question

Is Reebok 6100 material the same as Edge 2.0 material?  Would it be accurate to use some 6100 material as a nameplate on an Edge 2.0 jersey?

Please let me know if anyone has any insights.

Thanks!

The front and arms of the Edge 2.0 is simply airknit material. The back of the Edge 2.0 however, is a stretch mesh that was also on Edge 1.0 jerseys. I forget the actual name for it, but when sending jerseys for customization, I simply request an "Edge material nameplate".

Yup, not sure what all teams do, but my Devils jerseys have the Edge material nameplates, not airknit. Not sure if any teams use Airknit.

Pretty sure it actually is called “Stretch Mesh”, haha.

Only a few teams used airknit nameplates on 2.0’s; for example Pittsburgh and Ottawa did because the airknit shoulder panel on those models came down lower than normal, and the nameplate was placed over the airknit panel instead of the Edge stretch mesh back panel like on most other jerseys.  Other teams, like NYR and (I think) Chicago sometimes fluctuated between stretch mesh and airknit nameplates, presumably depending on whether stretch mesh was available at the time.  Boston used airknit, apparently because their customizer, Custom Crafted, didn’t seem to give a crap if it didn’t match the mesh back panel.

ACE uses flo-knit on Jets Adidas game jerseys and a quick search for Jets gamers shows me they did on Edge 2.0 jerseys as well.

Oh, and don’t forget that the Flyers used twill nameplates starting with the orange third (now home) in 2008 and from then on in 2010 on all jerseys except for the 2010 Winter Classic (ultrafil) and 2012 Winter Classic/third (felt).
