indykrap Posted May 2, 2022 Share Posted May 2, 2022 (edited) Hey all, I've been a Warrior user for about four years now (G3 and now G5) and following random bits of advice online, but really realizing I don't have a good fulsome grasp of how I like my pads strapped in. I get good performance most days, but feel like I'm missing "something". So I'm asking all of you! Here's my setup (bottom up): - Boot/toe strap removed. Added Prolace armor with about two knots - Calf wrap about halfway - Knee strapped to calf, but kept loose and only up to the end of the velcro - Buckles/nylon straps removed Picture attached, but ignore the knee wing as I have it on there for experimenting. Also, for reference, I do have pretty big legs, so I keep mine fairly loose as a result. Some questions I have: 1- How do you strap your pads? 2- Is this too loose? Should I consider going tighter in some way? 3- Does going to the knee aid in five hole closure at all? I feel my technique is decent, but my closure is meh, even with decent curve. 4- Should I use the nylon straps? I recall a lot of people taking them off their G3s, so I did then and took it off when I got these. I generally have no issue with staying on the block. I usually spend my summer skates getting more "dialed in" and working on gear stuff, so any advice or suggestions are welcome. Thanks all!
