Why would anyone not want a brand new set of "Pooper" pads?!?!?!

Definitely interested in seeing how this all pans out. The secrecy is getting me all hot and bothered.

Well you see, that all "Depends"...:giggle:

@Brians_Joz + @TGC-Rance are the only people on earth who have seen them... I think I got 1/2 lb off each pad. Rance the gloves are "crazy light"

Were you going for flames or claws??  Either way a good looking set.

I really don't mind it.  Although I always love the classic solid colored outer roll with a second solid color on the pad face

My first thought on the graphic.

Anyone play Street Fighter?  Looks like this dude's hair.

@Chenner29 - First, off thanks for the honesty. 

So many people approved pre order and I’m getting so much now, it’s fascinating to me and I love the honesty 

Grpahic: Mashup of the Raanta / Halford / Ranky graphic with inspiration by Darling’s last Chicago set  and Lack’s flames 

I wanted minimalist for sure too. Function over form

It's the Cordura. No offence as I know why you went with it but it makes the set aesthetically look very cheap. I've been staring at them for quite a while now and I personally don't like the juxtaposition of the Cordura and Jenpro, it looks off and does not inspire quality. I also think you're going to get some really bad skate cuts as well.

I feel like I'm ripping your new gear apart and I'm not meaning too. I honestly hope it performs as designed but personally I don't think the few grams of weight loss was worth it.

Edit: I noticed you said you've shaved 1/2 a pound, not insignificant. I look forward to hearing how they play and what the final weights are compared to say normal Optiks and a Warrior G4.

I'll give you a lot of credit for bucking trends in favour of function!

@Pauly35or00 - as long as criticism is phrased articulately and not in an FU manner, I welcome it 

Thank you for sharing your opinion 

This place will die if people are too polite to be honest toward me

You're probably getting ripped on IG because I think you went too minimalist with the "flames". A little more refined shape or detail would really make a huge difference.

I agree, love the idea but i think the flames are a bit to simple, little more shape would have made it better, but i can see what you where going with

@TheGoalNet People ripped the 1S for it's dimples/wrinkles too.  Durability of the 1S aside, you'll always draw criticism for dramatic changes.

I agree with others, I think the juxtaposition of the cordura and jenpro and the simplicity of the graphic is just such a departure from what's out there that it invites social media jabs.  Looking forward to seeing how they play and your impressions of them.

The cordura doesn't bother me as it just looks like matte jenpro. It's the graphic I don't like. It's like what a 5 year old would draw if you asked them to draw fire.

The Raanta graphic doesn't work unless you have the whole thing (and play for the coyotes, ideally - the ones above look kind of dumb). Darling was plain but it was at least sleek. Lack's pads look like actual flames so they're fine, too. 

Given the colors I probably would have gone with red sock stripes (like the old ottawa red on black unis) or darling's graphic. At least, if you cared about aesthetics (you said 'function over form' so maybe you didn't).

Agreed on the matte Jenpro / cordura. The slight bubbles is probably what is getting everyone upset. 

I also wanted the graphic to be in the spirit of a Potvin, but not a copy. It is not supposed to be a flame.

Any chance you'll have scales at the ready to compare to your red Optiks?

Red Optiks are gone. But I have all the pictures. Stock with all the flaps, boot strap, etc is 4.9 LBS. I am in at 4.4 LBS. All on the same scale. My shorter 1S pads that had knee flaps and boot straps removed came in at 4.6lbs.
