ArdeFIN Posted August 5, 2020 Share Posted August 5, 2020 Quote And what I tried today a tleast Bauer Vapor 2X pro and CCM Axis 1.9 are on par in weight. Just the feeling of course with no scale with me. So I tried quickly on some X2 Pro, Axis 1.9, Vapor 2X Pro and the new Bauer Pro. I liked the best was 2X pro. Simple, light, nothing bothered, well except the quality. I didn't take a photo of it but there was a seam on the outside of thigh which looked like it was ripped open and sewn bag together with no cleaning and styling. Bauer Pro was very similar but a little more snug fitting, not bad though and no quality issues noted. The naming is BTW awkward as I tried to google those pants for info. Axis was nearly the same as Premier R1.9 I had previously. And last the Warrior X2 pro, well it felt somehow different than X pro which might just be due to the break in, but anyway still very good. Choosing new pants now would be tough decision, 2X Vapor was very good feeling right on but the quality... Warrior is like as it's been but maybe slightly better with a face lift model. Axis would go very well but the previous problems with pushing C/A up, could it be solved makes a risk on those. And the Bauer Pro were without anything wrong but maybe just not good enough. Vaughn Velocity was there too but a size too small and no belt which I'd like to have. Above is a quote of myself from the Warrior area topic. So have a warranty claim going on and waiting for what it will be. In the mean time I'm looking for "whats next?" and for the selection I'm a bit narrowed by the offerings of the shop from where the Warrior pants are from. Above is most part of the available selection that was in store to try on, almost all models are available from those brands for sure but need to be ordered to the shop. What I'm looking for is someone to review the new Bauer offerings and Axis pants. And with some user experience or on-ice, I have seen them IRL at the shop already. What do you say about the offerings, everyone has their own preferences while I'm really open to any of these. I saw Vaughn VE8 should available in size L too from other shop so it's quickly achievable too. The inner belt is missing but then again I think I'm capable of implementing it by myself if needed. Is the VE8 suitable for tucking in by the waist space and height? It's really hard to tell from pictures where you can't see how the pant is settled. While I've been thinking it around I'd maybe go and try without the belt at all, just using the C/A as suspenders with front tie and "battle strap". It might give me some extra freedom that I don't even know I would need Reasoned opinions and discussion please. Found one review of interest: https://goaliecoaches.com/goalie-pants/ But to be honest that review gives only opinions and seems to me that all of the written isn't actually right at all. Like Axis being no-tuck more and in the final Eflex pants being the same as Axis/Premier. LOL Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
