Everyone say hello to my new set. 

Eflex’s are finally in!

Posted Images

I bought the Warrior R/GT2 full set back in 2019. These are my first set of brand new pads since the summer of 2004. I previously wore the Simmons Ultra Light 2 full set. Still trying to get used to the 75 degree glove. I know, boring, boring with the white colorway. But based on my budget, it's all I could do at the time.

This was when I first bought the pads, right before my first game in them, last October.

And this is what they look like now, after only 25 games from the 2019-2020 season (ended in March). I seem to make a lot of saves with my right leg. I think I do a lot of half butterfly saves, compared to full butterfly saves.

Just purchased these off of SidelineSwap

I will be purchasing some 2S Pro pads to match since I outgrew the G5 set. I had a growth spurt out of no where and the 33s just didn’t cut it anymore. My G5 set is for sale on SidelineSwap if anyone’s interested. They’ve only seen 3 months of use. The glove is a G5 pro and the blocker and pads are Sr+.

Damn that's an expensive growth spurt! you didn't have them that long, what is making you go with bauer vs another warrior set? just curious

Because Warrior is trash.

Actually yes that is my reasoning. Also the fact that our gear provider for the ducks refuses to work with warrior but does work with bauer. I’ve always wanted a crazy stiff pad and bauer fits that description

Frankenchesty alert!!

 

As you maybe might’ve expected, I was pretty disappointed with the arm protection on my v8 pro carbon, so I had an idea to pick up an optik2 chesty as they had velcro adjustable arms and also noticed added protection on the arms compared to the optik, so I took off the arms in the optik2 and sent it out to a local guy to get velcro attached to the v8, was $20 total plus buying the optik2 chest ofc. It isn’t absolutely perfect but he got the job done and I’m very happy with it!

Why didn’t you just go with the full Optik 2?
I have a V7 pro carbon that I’m not happy with the arms anymore and was looking at the Optik 2 or possibly the Axis if I can get it for a deal that I can’t pass up.

valid question.

i like the body on the ve8 just fine and as far as i'm aware there's no optik2 in stock that's xs. i'll probably get a custom optik2 eventually.

Very interesting, I agree with the arms on the v8 pro carbon but I also felt plenty stingers on the optik2 arms as well. Have you experienced the same since trying this out?

Haven’t gotten the chance to try it yet. Eventually I’ll go full custom and asked for beefed up arms on either a brian’s or vaughn but for now it’s for experimentation
