MTH Posted April 16, 2019 Share Posted April 16, 2019 I've been using the roller fly boards for about two years now. They are pretty neat. I see other goalies moving around the crease on them similar to being on ice. Yet, I can't slide that well on mine. I originally attached them to an older pair of Tour pads that pre-dated roller-fly - so getting them onto the pads was a little bit of a challenge as the calf and knee landing areas were more rounded and the pads - while flat faced - were pretty soft. Felt like I was squishing around the roller-fly boards and still grabbing too much pad on the floor and not letting me slide on the roller fly boards. So I picked up a newer pair of CCM pads (E something.5). Attached them with velcro as the knee and calf wings are flat and hard. Even added a little extra of the fuzzy side velcro around the boot. While they slide better than the Tour pads - they still aren't enough to let me slide. Now, unlike the other goalies I see sliding on these - I'm 6'2" and around 260. Am I too big for these? Current CCM pads are a 35+2. They're a little short as I roll off the top of the knee wing at times. But the pads were around $80 used at PIAS and were in great shape. For the life of me, I can't butterfly slide when I'm already down. I can get plenty of push on my back leg - but the slide leg feels stuck to the floor. Advice?
