Actual flat faced pads

Surprised nobody has tried to bring those back, frankly. There have been so many quantum leaps in strapping, boot attachment, the removal of knee rolls and materials that the next obvious thing to do is change the shape. After all, removing the outer roll has begun in varying degrees, from a suggestion of an outer roll to outright elimination of it by Factory Mad. May as well make the pad completely flat.

Our leg/foot isn't completely flat.  So why would you make a pad completely flat?  

Rebound control and 38" was max pad size at least in Europe, this way they could make a longer pad. If I remember right NHL (and IIHF)? made a rule that there must be a boot break.

We are not ready yet ;):D

I wouldn't mind a take 2 on the full front removeable skin pads from 2005 or 2008. They were a neat idea.
