redrook Posted June 20, 2019 Share Posted June 20, 2019 So for this season (mid 2018) I bought my first ever brand new set of pads (CCM Eflex 2) in a 34+3. I figured since I was coming from a set of 36+2 V3s there wouldn't be much difference, although the CCMs are slightly taller. That much thigh rise is certainly different! Would close the 5-hole nicely though except... ....I'm struggling to get them to close properly, and they seem to twist when I drop down (see pic, pad on ground is twisting, this happens whenever I am dropped, not just in this situation, although it is exaggerated in the pic due to me leaning). This twisting is creating that "under rotation" look, with a V-shaped gap at 5-hole. I can't really figure out why this is happening. I do my top strap really loose, I don't have any straps which are at or above my knee, and have really loose toe ties. Wondering if it's the shorts. I recently switched to less bulky knee pads, but no change. I'm thinking I might try no toe strap, and just a boot strap to keep the pads attached to the skates. I've read Law's lengthy post on pad over/under rotation but am none the wiser - http://modsquadhockey.com/forums/topic/68267-the-myth-of-pad-rotation-jargon-fallacy-confusion-and-the-real-issue-of-mechanical-interference/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
