Dang, I should have put some money on that, haha.

You called it first. So that knowledge should be payment enough.

Price’s pads have the stock strapping, which is a tweaked P2 

He’s got the EF4 composite stick as well

Oh look!  White, with a little bit of red...how amazing...

he didnt play well in colorful gear so he went to a more white pad. varlamov did this. he was shitty in 1s pads so he went back to eflex 3s this year that were all white and he did great

Price did change his colorway last year because he wasn’t comfortable in the busier graphic. In Goal Mag covered this.

The inner calf strap on Price’s EF4 is a D Ring and not exactly like a P2. Maybe some slight changes between the lines...

I know.  I was being facetious.

This is such a minor complaint, but I find I'm getting tired of hearing about goalies and their gear superstitions... and I've been on both sides of the tracks on this issue.

I'm not superstitious in the least — I don't have them myself, and they go against my own personal logic and philosophies. BUT, I do believe that there's something to be said about 'giving yourself the mental edge', and indulging in the 'look good, play good' mentality. Hockey is a crazy game, and the difference between a save and a goal, a win and a loss, or even winning the Cup and not making the playoffs, is not very big. Why not give yourself every advantage? It might be a placebo effect, but if Price feels that predominantly white gear gives him some advantage, he should go for it.

But I do find myself getting annoyed when I hear goalies openly alluding to their superstitions in regards to failures or successes. You're Carey Price, possibly the best goalie of this generation. Any success you have is because of YOU, brotha! Your talent, your hard work, your output. It's not because of your white-based pads. On the flip side, I don't want to hear about how you're going back to a white-based pad after a career-worst season. I mean, it does insinuate that having a more colorful pad is partly to blame... and I just think it's a bit pathetic to acknowledge that you believe that. I like a humble athlete, but you'd think that a superstar starting goalie would want to project an aura of confidence, or that they are ultimately in control of their play.

Here’s some looks at the textured colors zones added to the pads. This is on all retail pads. It’s texture overlaid on the Jenpro or Speed Skin.

Made a few concepts of teams i like

Islanders *top color zone is still royal blue but its emboss, the emboss seems to make the color zone darker)

So I am hoping I'm wrong, but I only see Camel and Brown in like 2-3 color zones (And the brown shows up navy on my screen?? Weird).

Am I not going to be able to order a full camel (or majority) setup now?
Majorly bummed as I've been saving my pennies for a first custom set. Might have to look elsewhere now.😡

The color options are somewhat limited.  When I was playing around earlier the only way I could get Hunter Green was by using Speedskin in more zones that I would have liked.   I also noticed that camel was missing, as I wanted to design a retro set similar to the R/GT2's I ordered to see how it would look on the EF4 platform.  I'm guessing Camel wouldn't look great with the textured overlays in the spikes so they relegated it to an accent color.

Honestly though, I never loved CCM's retro color.  I think Vaughn and Brian's have the best looking retro material, but I've always been partial to the more matte look of bucky clarino.

After seeing the EF4s in person, one thing that surprised me was how good the knee stack felt. From an online-only perspective, that grey molded foam looks very hard - but when you get your hands on them, it is actually very cushioning.

I've heard the same.  Its a carry over from the P2.  On the In Goal Mag podcast they discussed how many retail options the pros are adopting and the knee cradle was the leader

You'd have to do the RetroFlex version to get Camel... pretty sure they did the same thing on EF3.

      Warning: this mod is NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. It is by NO MEANS a pro-looking mod, but will make your blocker look campaigned. This is a usability mod, NOT for looks. 
      Have you ever bought a blocker and had a hard time closing your hand around your stick? This rabbit has, and knows full and well that it won’t get any better.
      A big portion of blame goes to the poor design of the index finger design, but also to the thumb, as well. If I didn’t like the palm, I probably would have this done by a professional whilst getting it re-palmed. I like the simple Ivory Nash palm this blocker has. When this palm gets tired, I will ask to have the thumb re-worked and fix my handiwork on the index finger protection. Being of TWO ethnicities who pride themselves on saving money, I figure “why not use up this palm first? I can make the finger protection work well enough to grip a stick comfortably and still have redundant index finger protection; it’s not like people are going to zero in on the finger protection and besides- I saved a bit of money!”
      You will need a seam ripper, serrated edge knife, 50 grit sand paper, a curved leather needle, sharp scissors, a clothespin, and sail thread. Upcoming posts will show the steps.

      Ordered pads and a blocker (pictured) a while ago now (still have a little over 3 weeks of waiting on the blocker and a month on pads😔). 
      I currently use a Larceny glove. The plan was to stick with it, but I am considering just buying a new glove to match my set.
      I havent been able to try on either VE8 glove or the SLR 2. 
      Can anyone tell me if any of those would be similar to my Larceny? Hoping to get somewhere to try them on soon.
      Also contemplating just pulling the trigger on a 5500.
      Thanks!

      Isn't it the other way around?  600=baseball closure aka 60 degree,  590=75 degree and 580= roughly 90 degree?
