Hi everyone. I just joined, as I came across this site while looking for old-school goalie pads. Would like to share my comic strip, Small Saves, with everyone. Please enjoy.

For the past couple of months i’ve owned a pair of stock CCM Axis 1.9 pads, original strapping and all. Ever since I got them, I can’t seem to get my knee to land on the knee blocks. When I go down into a butterfly, my knees always land below the knee blocks, causing my pads to rotate upwards and the face to shift upwards. this has affected my play and i’m not sure what I can do, i’ve tried many things.
Need help with make right choice Brian's Optik 2 spec max or flx and pads size .
From new pads i want find lightweight, durability, good 5 whole coverage, good fit, good rebound and not twisted.
At this moment i use Warrior G4 pro 34+1.5 stock, and it's really ok form me.
Knee at right place. (check photo)
My butterfly isn't good, but i try change it ).
At Warrior i don't like durability.
I train 5/7 days at week, and think my pads looks poor.
At local shop i can't find 33/4+1 flx/max.
I try on Optik 2 fly 33+1 and lt's don't feel good for me. Stance isn't ok and butterfly don't comfortable. But knee +/- ok.
Try on Optik 9.0 34+1 and knee isn't in place, but butterfly is ok. (check photo)
I try on ice old Brians Sub zero 3 33+1 and can't close 5 whole.
Floor to ankle 3.5 inch (9 cm)
Ankle to knee 16 inch (40 cm)
Knee to hip 17 (45 cm)
Skate size 8EE Bauer
Hight 5.57 Ft (170 cm)
At Brians site https://www.goalies-only.com/fitting-guide/ recommend use 30+1... and it's look weird.
