  1. The Bauer GSX felt better than the Vaughn Knee pads...way less bulky and restrictive. Did you settle on the Warrior ritual x2 knee pads? They look comfortable
  2. I just got some Bauer gsx knee pads since they are not too bulky. We'll see how it goes...
  3. Yep, you're right, I know one skate is not enough...I just feel like the knee pads are always touching each other and it is hard to move around...just does not feel right. I know they are no longer around but I have been using the Vaughn thighboards for several years...so moving to single break pads with knee pads feels quite a bit different...I like to be able to move my knees and I feel like I can't move as well with knee pads. Not sure if that makes sense or not. 🙂
  4. So I tried some V8 single break pads last night (my V5's are double break) with the matching blocker and glove...with knee pads. I did not feel very comfortable on the ice. I had a V8 pro carbon chest protector as well. I think I am gonna keep my V5 gear...The blocker and glove + the chest protector felt lighter than my V5 equipment though but I do not see how I would get used to knee pads. I felt stuck...I guess it's all about what you are used to!
  5. Wow! Thanks seagoal for all of that info. I remember reading that older Vaughn pads used to settle a bit and V6 pads and newer don't do that anymore.
  6. Good morning! I was just wondering if there is a noticeable difference in weight going from Vaughn V5 Pro gear to let's say Vaughn V8 Pro carbon stuff? I have looked at numerous reviews on newer Vaughn equipment but not sure what it translates to vs older equipment like mine. My V5 equipment is still in very good condition but except changing for newer gear, is there any advantage doing so? Just curious.
