Doobiesnax Posted January 3, 2018 Share Posted January 3, 2018 Ok so i figured I might as well through up a thread on my modding experiment on my Reactor 4000 pads. This was my first dive into modding pads, but with a little info from @Kayen i've found the experience to be super fun and almost addicting. So I snagged a set of Bauer Reactor 4000's in great shape off of GGSU for $150 cdn + shipping about 2 months ago, bought a speedy stitcher sewing awl, and started tinkering. To date here is what I've done: - De-Badged them by removing the Bauer logo from the knee roll and the reactor logo from the outer roll (Id did the same to my retro flex gloves) - Replaced toe laces with prolaces - Removed the knee cradle (I re-purposed it as a temp knee block cushion until my new monster blocks come in (i know, i know) - Removed the 2 lower leather calf straps - Removed the thigh guard attachments - Removed the knee block nylon strap (left the top thigh rise one so i can carry the pads) - Added 2" K straps to the bottom and top calf wraps. I made a tab with jenpro and velcro that combines these two straps and the knee block elastic strap together like a smart strap that all attach as one to the calf wrap. - Added a elastic "professor strap" at the top of my calf just under my knee that attaches directly to the leg channel lacing. The pads rotate and feel great now so all in all its been a very fullfilling first crack at pad modding. Original Pads: Current Pads: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
