THE REEBOK EDGE (Gen 2)

While there were changes to materials and customization specifications on a large scale, the most profound changes were cosmetic in the second generation of Reebok Edge jerseys worn by the Predators, which were placed into service beginning with the 2011-2012 Season.  The bright and bold gold coloring, guitar pick patch, piano key collar, guitar string numbers, and many other mainstays seen up into modern jerseys were unveiled with this generation.

Though 'Cutting Edge' technically stopped operating under that name around 2009, the owner of CE continued to customize Predators jerseys into the 2014-15 season.  These jerseys featured nameplates made of jersey material & sublimated numbers stitched individually to the plates.  After '14-'15, all nameplates were fully sublimated

**Special Notes on Set Tagging (2011-12 Thru 2014-15)**

For several seasons, Meigray sold set 1 jerseys for the Preds (with some exceptions), while the team sold their set 2+ jerseys directly through the Pro Shop, which created some unique tagging from year to year.  Here are the details from each season:

2011-12:  Meigray Sold ONLY Set 1.  Team Sold Set 2 (see tag).

2012-13:  Meigray Sold Set 1 AND Set 2 Debuts/Callups

                                                  Team Sold all other Set 2 (see tag).

2013-14: Meigray Sold ONLY Set 1.  Team Sold Set 2 (see tag).

2014-15: Meigray Sold ONLY Set 1.  Team sold UNTAGGED Set 2.
