Brian's Eclipse series

Recommended Posts

I got a chance to try on these gloves at my local hockey shop and I like the blocker, the glove is ok.... I prefer the iconik glove. The rvh glove down pass trap with the eclipse the pocket doesn't lay flat like Optik and iconik lines which is a problem. It presents well otherwise. Not on my list to buy tho. Probably going with iconik/Optik combo.

I’ve always wanted a Brian’s set/gloves and if it wasn’t for the price I would have probably went with this 580 over the Bauer vapor90 but the price is starting to get pretty ridiculous. Like most gear the price is starting to be crazy. 600/700+ for a CA that won’t give you bruises etc…

That is why I went with PAW. I was able to get a custom glove/blocker set for around 800, including shipping. That's not cheap, but definitely cheaper than the big boys. Bauer would have cost me about 1200 (1167).

Just got word that my Iconik/Eclipse combo is in. Ordered my SLR4s and this set like almost 3 months apart and they came in within 2 weeks of each other.

Is it just the break or the glove itself? have you ever tried on a Vapor90 and if so how does it compare? i keep talking myself in and out of ordering a glove. I'm currently using a vapor90 and love the closure and the feel and no one near me has the eclipse in store.

I had a vapor90 and am getting my eclipse delivered in a few days. I’ll let you know how they compare.

So to my surprise my LHS had some eclipse in shop. The glove needed to be broken in but felt pretty close to the vapor in closure. The blocker was the first blocker I tried on that felt horrible  the nose felt heavy and just felt cumbersome. The optik blocker felt way better and closer to the Mach blocker. I’m still on the fence whether I should order a glove or not. It felt good but something was also just off, then again it wasn’t broken in but already able to close fully. 
 

Is it usually the same wait time for a single glove. All I want is the thief eyes on the T….. idk why I’ve always really liked that and always wanted some Brian’s gear.

I wish manufacturers would make pad graphics like this again.  Nice, simple, eye-catching.

Some of the shit they're putting out there these days is so convoluted, like a DaveArt mask

Cue optik3 graphics. I want a set so bad but the new optik graphics are so bad.

I contend the domestic manufacturers who offer custom graphics intentionally put out bad stock graphics to force you to go custom

True made solid graphics with the 12.2 and the PX3, and threw out the garbage that is the hzrdus graphic. It’s so bad.

I went to place my order pretty convinced I was going with iconiks and ended up in slr4. I find this post ironic 🤣

Did you order the same config as the SLR4s? You had one knee break in those right? How they compare in stiffness?

Iconiks should be here Thursday so I’ll let you know then. I actually ordered the stiff no break profile on the Iconik because I wanted the aggressive Z curve. So far with the slr4s the only thing I haven’t loved is how straight they are, I’m gonna try to work in a bit of a bend at the knee break.

12.2 was just OK IMO

20.2 and PX3 are great

Hzrdus/PX4 is poo poo
