  1. Any issues with puck pop out? I just ordered new VE8 pads and blocker and was planning to keep my Larceny glove because I love it. After seeing the new set, I feel like I have to have the matching glove. I love the angling on my Larceny and have a little finger curl to keep the glove from pancaking/flattening out. It looks like your glove has flattened significantly - do you think that causes pop outs? I understand some goalies prefer this in their gloves, but I can't stand it.
  2. Thanks! Yeah, they surprisingly felt really good considering they're way stiffer and much taller. Let me know your thoughts on those knee pads. My plan is to eventually try ditching the attached knee guards for knee pads. I'll be looking for some with very little bulk.
  3. My pads and blocker finally came in last Friday. I originally wanted to stick with my larceny glove because I love it so much, but may just order the matching glove after seeing these. Blocker is stock. Pad mods: - Quick Slide - Full SLR2 channel and strapping - All nylon leg channel - no air mesh - Attached knee guards I put them to work in my game the next day. It's a big adjustment coming from broken down V3s, but they felt about as good as new equipment can feel. The Quick Slide will definitely take some time to get used to.
  4. Right. That was next step. I’m in Chicago and hoping to find someone close. Was just curious if anyone had traded via mail before. Seems like an awful idea.
  5. I have two pro stock 27" Bauer 2S Pro sticks that I am hoping to trade. I picked them up thinking I would try to adjust to the longer paddle as I have previously used a 27". After giving it some more thought, I don't think I'm going to bother testing one and decreasing value. I am hoping to trade them for 26" paddles. So, I have 2 questions: 1. If anyone has completed a trade, how did you go about it? I would prefer to find someone in my area so we could just meet in person. 2. Anyone out there have some 26" sticks they would be willing to trade? I would be looking for pro stocks in return. Ideally, I would like to get 2S Pros or V1 Pro +'s in return.
  6. I think the strapping will be a bit different, but feel fairly confident it won't be too bad. I really only rely on the top calf strap and knee velcro on my V3s. I also thought the pad rotated wayyy better with the SLR2 strapping than with the VE8 strapping. I think the biggest adjustment for me will be how stiff the pads are. Even though its the velocity line, the V8s are way stiffer than my V3s were when I first got them and now they're obviously not stiff at all after years of abuse haha. Plus they'll have Quick Slide. Can't wait. One more month to go.
  7. Maybe that's where I'll end up. I'm already rocking my world with the switch from V3s with a tight leg channel to V8s with the SLR2 leg channel and strapping. Why not switch up the cuff too!
  8. This is a reason why I’m giving the one piece serious consideration. Seems like the rigidity of the one piece would be an improvement. I just wish Vaughn didn’t change the graphic for the one piece.
  9. I agree. I honestly didn't like it at all until I saw it in person and then I really started to love it. Also, update: I had scrambled brains from work and I realized I said Revoke and not LARCENY. So, I am looking to find a comp in Vaughn to my LARCENY glove. Not sure I can update the thread title... I feel shame...
  10. I think I'm just a creature of habit and that's what I know I like. I wouldn't say I would never choose the one piece, but I really do not like change when it comes to my gear (as evidenced by the fact that I am moving to VE8s from V3s). I also still wear the same Vaughn Legacy pants I've had for an eternity (but will soon be replaced because they're also falling apart, sadly).
  11. Thanks for the reply. I admit I am not super familiar with the CCM breaks, but judging off of what I've seen, I thought the 2-piece VE8 looked pretty close. I'll have to post a pic of my Revoke later. I think I would lean toward the 2 piece cuff because that is what I am familiar with, but I'd like to try on the one piece to compare. I thought about sticking with CCM, but if it's only a small adjustment I'd like to match my set. I do want to try the gloves on, though, as my last Vaughn glove was the V3 and I really didn't care for it after using it for about 3 years. I felt the palm "bubbled out" in a way and I had a lot of pucks popping out.
  12. Ordered pads and a blocker (pictured) a while ago now (still have a little over 3 weeks of waiting on the blocker and a month on pads😔). I currently use a Larceny glove. The plan was to stick with it, but I am considering just buying a new glove to match my set. I havent been able to try on either VE8 glove or the SLR 2. Can anyone tell me if any of those would be similar to my Larceny? Hoping to get somewhere to try them on soon. Also contemplating just pulling the trigger on a 5500. Thanks!
  13. Would reiterate this. I am in V3s, awaiting VE8s. It will be a massive change for each of us, but an even bigger change for you going from what I assume are now extremely broken down / soft V4s to a very different pad in the Ventus (stiff overall, with a stiff boot). I tried on both pads and ended up switching the entire VE8 leg channel / strapping to the SLR2 set up. I just felt the pad rotated so much better with the SLR 2 strapping and I found the 2 elastic magnetic straps on the stock VE8 to be useless. I also didnt like the way the VE8 channel wraps around the calf compared to SLR 2. So, try both lines on. Try other new pads on. Find what you like from Vaughn lines / ask how they can match something you liked in other lines (similar to your glove question). Pads have changed so much since your V4s, so there is a lot to investigate. I spent over a year trying to decide what I wanted (but note, I'm also incredibly indecisive).

    Love #2. Did you try a red sidewall with Black "VAUGHN" lettering? Could look sick.
