  1. Finally pulled the trigger on a Faux Pro action cam... hoping to have my first video up in the next few weeks... can’t wait for feedback
  2. my g4 pads just came yesterday that i bought from goaliemonkey.com. i went straight to training and i feel not comfortable enough. do you know how to break in pads properly? previously i used CCM Premier R1.9 pads for 1 year
  3. Looking to purchase G3 or G4, Classic, Retro Tan. Pro or Senior. I live in Ontario Canada. Hoping to find a set to match my new-to-me R/GT Retro Gloves.
  4. Keepers! I'm extremely happy that I stumbled onto this page while researching my first new set in nearly a decade. I'll do my best to keep this short. I'm hoping some people with personal experience can guide me into a 'correct' decision. Looking to get into a set of Warrior GT Classic, but I'm having trouble deciding what size makes the most sense for my game/size. I'm right between where the Warrior Sizing guide recommends a 32+1.5" and 33+1.5". I'm a hair over 5'7" with a FTK of 19.25". In high school, with growth anticipation (lol), I was in a set of Vaughn V3 7500s at 35+1". After never hitting a growth spurt, we made some minor configurations to make the pads 'work'. I'm used to pads being loose and sitting very low as a result. But it's been about 6 years since getting shot at, so I figure now is the best time to get into a new set of properly-fit pads and build new muscle memory. I'll be playing 2-3 week in men's league and random ice time. I'm a predominately butterfly goalie with some hybrid tendencies. Through my research I've found a common consensus to be - Warriors are stiffer (which is fine for me) and they sit a bit higher on boot than typical (can anyone confirm?). Does anyone have any knowledge/recommendations on which route I should go - 32+1.5" or 33+1.5"? My fear is that since I'm used to a bigger pad, the 32+1.5" will seem like an extreme difference. But I'm not sure if the stiffer, .5" and higher boot sit might make it closer to a 32+2". Any suggestions, questions, feedback, personal stories, etc. would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again for any and all help. I'm excited to be a part of the group! Thank you!

  6. Below is a link to my YouTube video comparison review of the Brian's Opt1k FLX Goalie Pads vs. Warrior Ritual G2 Pro Goalie Pads. "New vs. Old set." I apologize for the quality of this video as it was rushed because I was selling my Warrior pads the next day and I wanted to ensure I did this comparison. Key Highlights: Brians Opt1k Pro FLX (35.5" +1) Sliding - the sliding on the Optislide material is amazing. In all conditions they are top notch. By the 3rd period of a game when it gets pretty snowy this material continues to perform much better than the Warriors which do significantly slow down. This material is also thicker and seems much more durable. Strapping - the strapping on the Opt1k's are great with lots of options for all preferences. I do like the smart toe strap and the boot strap better than what Warrior uses. Although the Warrior boot and toe straps are much quicker to put on. Customization - I love the look of the Brian's Opt1k pads so I stuck with their core design and just customized my color options. Brian's does offer some amazing logo and other customizations if you really want to harness your inner artist expressionism. Seal to Ice - these pads offer a really stable firm knee block when slamming your knees into the ice and the full pad seals firmly to the ice. I find I don't let in as many goals that squeeze under my pads. I also find that the 5-hole coverage is better and I'm not giving up as my goals in this area as my Warriors. Pad Stiffness and Rebounds - I was pleasantly surprised that the E-foam in these FLX pads does have lots of punch with their rebounds. I understand the FLY core is even stiffer but the FLX have been great with some solid powerful rebounds much bigger than my Warriors. The flex in these pads are great to provide customization on how much curve you want with your pads. Warrior Ritual G2 Pro (36" +1.5) Weight - the weight is still lighter than the Opt1k and this is an area Warrior prides itself. For me, weight is important and I prefer to have pads that are on the lighter end of the scale. Profile Lock Patent System - I found this system really great to help customize the curve of my thigh rise. Especially helpful for me with a narrow butterfly. Knee Driving System - I really liked how the knee rotated in these pads. There was extra angled padding used in the knee cradle and knee block to help really push the knee into the knee block.

  11. Hey Guys! So I must apologize for being so late to the party. Goal Net has done an awesome job getting a nice forum going where we can focus on the gear! I know most of us are absolute junkies and drool over gear. I am gonna try and share as many cool things, custom orders etc as we get them. We do try to keep our posts up to date on Instagram and Facebook as well. Unfortunately though since there is only 3 of us who work here on a full time basis and usually only have 2-3 of us in the store at any given time and we all wear many hats and do various things. That being said I cannot dedicate as much time as I would like to certain things, this being one of them but I will try! Should anyone ever need to get in touch with me, TGC Rance on Facebook and my email is rance@thegoaliecrease.com -Rance
  12. I wanted to write that review for a long time but wanted to play enough games with them before. Getting away from the ice with a minor surgery and also working on writing, drawing and self-publishing my very first comic book (that’s a secret though, so keep your mouth shut!) delayed this review. First, I was before in Ritual G3 33+2. All stock with 60 degree liner ion the catcher. I’ve ordered my R/GT with the same size and the stock catcher angle. The only difference being that I could order the R/GT with 2 knee breaks, like I had on my G2. But the R/GT don’t have the profile lock. So first question everybody asks is : “Can you get a decent S shape with the R/GT without it and without any thigh strap?” Let me say this, my butterfly is really narrow, 90’s style narrow. So, if the R/GT couldn’t close the 5 hole, I wouldn’t use them at all. So yes, just by storing them upside down in-between games, I was able to get the shape I need and close the 5 hole just as good as the G3 and G2. But to make things clear, I guess you will need the 2 knee breaks for that. I strap my R/GT exactly like my G3. I took out the neoprene knee strap and only kept the nylon strap. The boot strap goes at my ankle through my skate homemade Lundy Loop. Only difference, on my R/GT I use a skate lace at the toe while I was using the toe strap on my G3. Why? I don’t know, maybe the difference in the tapered toe or maybe since there’s no profile lock I needed an extra quarter of inch of loose to close the 5 hole? Anyway, with that, I got the exact same feel when butterflying on both models. The R/GT with double knee break is way softer vertically. It shows when I rest my hands on top of them when the puck is away from my zone. I don’t know if it’s the case, but the boot break feels softer too. Nothing that makes it a huge adaptation coming from the G3. I wasn’t surprised by the rebounds neither so I guess it reacts just the same. Little details come to mind while writing this though. I’m what you would call and hybrid goalie. With such a narrow butterfly, I rely on half-fly saves (kick save or whatever you call it) and Potvin-esk paddle down on close play. With the smaller and looser outside wedge, I feel less restrictive when I pull out my leg. Not something I couldn’t do with my G3, but I had to loosen up the outside wedge on my G3 just like I did on my G2, to feel 100% comfortable. I know the R/GT have shorter knee stacks, but I don't even notice it when I play. So, I’m super happy with the pads. If you ask me which one is better between the G3 and R/GT, I would have a hard time giving you an answer. I got the same results from both with very minor tweaks. Maybe someone who would like a straight stiff pad would know better. As for the weight, they both feel as light. Then, the easy part of the comparison here, the blocker. The R/GT, G3 and even G2 feels a lot the same. Which is good since I love it. Also, I would guess it’s the lightest blocker on the market. On all version of it, I loosen up the wrist to the maximum and add extra length of strap to have it completely open. I need to feel that my wrist is as mobile as when I have no gear on. I’ve been doing this since forever on all the blockers I had in the past. Now, the catcher, while it feels like the G2 and G3, the R/GT seems a bit less bulky at the palm. Probably because the liner isn’t removable, so less material between your hand and the palm of the catcher. All 3 catchers close like a charm even out of the box. So I guess it’s all about what you prefer, the G2 and G3 felt more like if you had a practice palm while still closing like a game ready catcher. I do have a slight preference for the R/GT over the G2 and G3 catchers. Again, it’s the lightest catcher on the market. Around 850 grams compared to 1200 grams for a CCM Eflex 3. If you have any question, feel free to post and I’ll try to answer the best I can. Here are the pictures of the R/GT in comparison with the G3 set.
  13. Hi, I’m looking for a Warrior G2 glove and blocker in red and white if possible. Senior or pro level, doesn’t matter. Graphics don’t matter either as I like both the classic and regular graphics, just want red and white colorways HMU if you have a set (or even just a glove or a blocker) or know of any available. Willing to pay up to $350 for the set. Thanks!!
