Max27 Posted August 8, 2018 Share Posted August 8, 2018 A little background info on me, for whatever reason. I am a late bloomer playing hockey to say the least. I began in the beginning of 8th grade but ive worked hard to keep up with other people in my age group who began when they were younger. For my next leg pads i am going to purchase the bauer 1x pads, or the x900s, depending on my situation financially. I will get them around the time the 2x comes out so that they drastically drop in price. they will replace my eflex 2 760 pads, which are entry level, and 1x is pro level and the x900s are senior pro, so it will be a big switch, but nonetheless exciting. I will still end up using the eflex pads for a dek hockey team that I sub as goalie for because that is meant as a league for practice, but as I enter my Sophmore year of high school, and I look to try out for my local team, Ive had the eflex pads since last December and I find theyre a little too soft, and I dont get a good seal on the ice with them, so I want to get a stiffer pad that can maintain shape but still have a relatively good flex amount. I find when I strap my pads that my leather straps really dont do much as Ive always kept them kinda loose, but I never played with an all elastic setup as the Vapors have, so I want to add a leather strap just for tradition. It feels weird to not have at least 1 leather strap. Is it possible with retail vapor pads to add a leather strap on them? I dont mean a leather boot strap, I dont use a boot strap now anyways.
