I'm seeking help with what specs I should get based on my play style and preferences. I'm on the shorter side (5'6") but still growing. I play a very athletic style. Right now this is what I'm thinking about going with. I currently wear a size medium intermediate bauer pad, which is listed as 31+1, I'm thinking I should go with a 33+1.5. Stock knee strap, mid knee (I wear the strap behind my knee.) Stock boot strap through skate (I wear the bootstrap going through the back hole) Standard toe bar with skate lace (planning on putting in Pro Laces) Single break (undecided on what stiffness I should choose for the boot/thigh. Not sure what is the best for my style.) I'm also thinking of going with a tapered toe (but what are the benefits?) Thanks in advance. Edit: If there are different specs that you guys think would be good, let me know please. How flexible are your hips? Do you have a wide butterfly? If so you can use stiffer pads if you want. I have very flexible hips and use a softer pad out of preference like Korpisalo and Quick. Soldier pads help with 5 hole seal. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
