gruffin Posted November 9, 2022 Share Posted November 9, 2022 Hey folks, I'm brand new here, just starting to poke around what seems like an excellent resource. Please excuse this post if it's been made in the wrong place. I've been playing with the same 34+1 V2's for the past 16 years. They were used when I got them. I haven't been keeping up with gear trends because I could never afford to change my gear, and it was working well enough. Now I'm finally in a position to get a new kit and the process is slightly overwhelming. I'm doing my research and think I have a decent handle on what would work, but I'm hoping some conversation here may be of assistance. Recognizing that my old V2's definitely shrunk, I did always find them to be a tad big in the knee. Today I tried on some new V8 and V9 pads in a 33 +2 and they felt great in the knee but a little bit too tall on the thigh; the pads were overlapping significantly in the middle when I went into butterfly. I suppose I could work on widening my stance, but my sense is that the +2 may just be too big. So, I think that a 33+1 would be the ideal sized pad and I'dd like to keep with a hybrid, softer style of pad. In my search, I'm seeing only 33 +2 in the newer Vaughns, but lots of ccm eflex in 33+1 size, so I'm wondering how these pads compare to the Velocity line -- they appear to fill a comparable niche, but am I missing something important? Recommendations for other brands/lines that might better suit my transition to the modern age? Any guidance provided would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
