ThatCarGuy Posted November 27, 2022 Share Posted November 27, 2022 This may take a little longer than usual since I’m reduced to 2 ice times a week instead of 4-5 but here we go. I’ll be comparing an Axis 2.9 591 vs a Premier R1.9 590 For those not familiar, 591 is CCM’s new break, the only thing it shares in common with a 590 is the break. Based off initial impressions the 590 is more of a flat “pancake” palm glove while the 591 seems to have a little more depth to it more similar to 580. Strangely, they weigh exactly the same on a luggage scale, 2lbs 0oz. The internal strapping is vastly different between the two with 590 using the traditional ccm/lefevre style and 591 introducing the crossform system. One highlight and polarizing feature of the 591 is the complete lack of finger stalls. Personally I wear a golf glove inside all of my gloves to help grip better and using that in the 591 my fingers don’t slip and feels more natural than the 590. That said the 591 is not an easy closure for me just yet since it’s basically new. My first ice time with the 591 break will be tonight with a couple buddies. I’ll report back any findings including how it feels to shoot a puck with. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
