  2. I think those older Reebok int "pro" gear was same quality as CCM 1.9 now. Reebok Premier 2 Int pro pads weren´t same quality as Premier Sr Pro pads. Vaughn and Brian´s made some real pro, made in Canada int gear but nowadays those would cost maybe 2000$ per set. I compared CCM sr 1.9 and int 1.9 catch gloves and I didn´t find any differences. They feel and look the same, even sizing seems to be same. I don´t know if padding or palm size is little different.

    Great finish on these! Not my colour, but solid work all around.

    While the color selections aren’t in my wheel house... it’s some good work.

    i voted 1. i think you should make the logo visible though, in the yellow you used, or white.

    I voted #1... but I think it's tough to integrate too much pattern or much beyond black with retro tan. Pretty sure @Punisher Goalie had a similar post where there were some good use of colorways.

    Agreed on the optical illusion... but only a good carrot to be dangling if you close your 5 hole quickly... otherwise you're throwing up a billboard saying "WIDE OPEN."

    @Max27 NO Custom orders take at least 8 weeks depending on each company, no it won't come in a day. That's goaliemonkey shipping when they receive your set lol do not over-pay for shipping

    So, I have been toying around with the brians optik mitt on goaliemonkey. I have got my custom specs- regular hand double T skatelace pocket BOA black stiching for my last name on it If i order 1 day shipping, will it legit come the next day or will it still take the 8 week custom order wait?

    Also depends on your flexibility too. I'm decently flexible and didn't notice too much of a difference myself either. But I know guys rocking the Giggy-fly see a huge benefit in the soft pads.

    I've worn both, I guess I just never really understood where I might see the difference. I agree 100% that a stiffer pad works against you in most areas. I noticed that with using G3's coming from Reactor 9000's, it was like I couldn't even feel the weight difference once on the ice because I could move so much easier in the Reactor's despite the heavier weight. But I will say that a stiffer pad feels much more stable when in the butterfly, which does feel like less work sometimes as well.

    They'll be different. I've gone from P2's -> V4's -> R/GT's. A more flexible pad (especially torsional) will put less strain on the hips/knees as the pad is far more forgiving and will bend with the leg. Stiff pads generally work against you. Granted, a lot of these are due to toe ties really. If we had the same slack in a stiff vs soft pad, the soft pad will be less strenuous as per my reasons above. Toss in a lot more slack and injury issues will lessen.
  19. The R1.9's are the top end of the INT line. It's still INT gear though, it isn't meant for your level or the amount you play. Paying a grand for pads is pretty normal for new SR gear. Unfortunately, due to the level you play and the amount you play, custom pro gear in your size is your best bet until you can fit SR gear. I really don't think a 1+ year review for INT gear claiming it's falling apart and not worth anyone's money when you're easily using gear that isn't fit for you is a fair review. It's held up decently well until recently correct?

    Option 2 Option 1 looks like every eBay/Craigslist posting with the pads the wrong way around/on the wrong legs

    I would say option 1 because the gloves look better in that design as well. Option 3 is pretty good as well, but I don’t think the gloves look as good.
  22. Mine feels like that too, materials breaking down that's all lol

    Injuries of the trade

    The flexible vs. stiff pad discussion has been going on forever, but in terms of the injury aspect, I've always heard that a softer(more flexible) pad may put less strain on the joints such as the hips, knees and ankles. Anyone use both flexible and stiff pads for extended periods of time and really feel like they've felt a difference in that respect?
  24. Yes I am. I play almost every day as I am going to be a freshman starting JV and backing you Varsity. That aside you are correct. It is hard to find pro level gear in an intermediate size not to mention the cost. When the first generation of CCM Premier came out there was an intermediate pro level pad but who’s gonna pay a grand for a pair of pads. I recently ordered a set of Custom Bauer Vapor X900’s Senior Small. I have high hopes for these but am not impressed with the wait time. I am also a soccer goalie aside from hockey and the only thing I have to do is find a size of glove I wear and what colors I want. The post I’ve paid for these have been about $100 USD
