Jonathon v Posted May 12, 2019 Share Posted May 12, 2019 I just did a goalie demo day thing and I tried 3 pads. The premier 2 pads, the gnetik 4 and the Eflex 4 in that order. Ice was pretty fresh I got on about 15 minutes into it and the premier 2 pads slid very well. They also had an incredible seal. I did however feel they were sloppy on my leg and I had everything as tight as it goes. Then after like 20 minutes oh the ice I went off, took them off and put on the gnetik 4 pads and I was super hyped for these pads. They felt good on my leg and were tight to my leg. The seal was good, but I think still left a little tiny gap for 5 hole. These also slid very well. Both of these pads slid differently, however. I honestly don’t know how they slid differently but I felt like they did. I really can’t tell which one slid better, also as the ice was a bit more chopped up because this was about 30 minutes after I got off the ice. They did feel more comfortable though because of the fit and they were not practically falling off my leg. Next I wore the Eflex 4 which I thought would be amazing because it has speedskin and ccm seal, combined with being a softer pad with a bit tighter fit. Oh boy was I wrong. These pads were disgustingly stiffer than the premiers , and slid like shit. Worse than a plain jenpro with binding would slide on an couple years older pad I would dare to say. I don’t know what was up with that but I hated those lol. Just wanted to get thoughts on why I couldn’t tell which one slid better and why the Eflex 4 sucks. Oh and also I used the gnetik 4 mitts and let me say this. My optik glove closes better than that gnetik glove when not strapped on. But when I strap my glove (I make it as humanly tight as possible for max control) I can’t even fully close my optik. I make the gnetik 4 as tight as possible And I am still fully closing it with relative ease, and it is definitely more padded than my optik. I didn’t like the gnetik 4 blocker, it felt very weird and uncomfortable and my optik blocker gets better pop in my opinion Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
