    CCM Eflex 5

    Took a peek at these at PHL the other day. What's the point of calling a pad "Extreme Flex" if it's rock hard with a soft boot? Seriously...
  2. G5 Sr+ core will be stiffer than G4 Pro core despite no hyper comp. See hockeyreview's video.
  3. From Oilers TV - Smith in True's now, after being in his P2's earlier in camp.

Would provide more pressure, and you even have measurement?
  5. ITT: People upset at "cancel culture". Personally I don't think respect for one another is something to be upset about, and as with anything due diligence is always required. Art or not, and especially when said art is supposed to be an homage. This is not a bubble wrapped planet. This is not woke culture. This is not left wing, right wing. It's just respect.
  6. I've heard conflicting things about G5 liners in G3 gloves - @CJ Boiss can you confirm? I'm on 3+ years on my G3 palms. While they're still decent, i'll probably want to replace them at some point in the next couple of years. (My G3 glove/blocker is closest thing to love I can find, they will remain with me till they die).
  7. Don't do it. Enough said.
  8. Also another Vaughn SLR user. Hasn't let me down yet after a few years.

    No shrinkage. Boot on the G3 was designed to flex, almost as if it's on a hinge, so no breakdown or settling of the boots that you would've seen with older Vaughn (V5 and older) pads.

    I've had Sr G3 stuff for 2.5 years. used 3-5x a week. Not particularly well cared for, tossed around and treated like shit. If i hadn't purchased a size too big (but it still works fine), I wouldn't have any qualms with using these until they're beaten to a pulp, and given how well everything feels besides crusty palms (which G4/G5 liners can still slot in, for quick easy refresh),I don't see any point going to pro for me personally.
  11. Very excited to see primo sliding surface make it down to the sr level gear. Hopefully retains same price point as Optik 9.0/Gnetik 8.0. @A.YOUNGoalie13 i'm working 2 jobs, and my budget still isn't much better. Not all of us can afford pro gear nor do we want used gear.
  12. Wonder what the price point different with Sr and Sr + with the chest protectors. As with the pads there's only regular Pro and regular Sr+ (and custom pro). Chest protector i see it this way though: Pro +: Pro with robocop arms Pro: Pro with traditional arms. Sr +: Sr Chest protector, traditional arms. (equivalent to GT2 senior protection wise) Sr: Sr Chest protector, no belly extensions, single layer elbow floater (vs double on other models), stripped down elsewhere. Interested in how things do, my G1 Pro w/ CCM arms has lots of gaps, and starting to break down.
  13. Did they keep the velcro orientation the same on the liners, so that in theory the liners could be backwards compatible with G3 gloves? (I know you can do G4 to G3, but not to G2 since velcro was reversed on the G3).
  14. Whatever you get, wrap it in a gigantic rubber. Safety first .

    To add, no binding on the knee wing, and a 45 degree cut out on the knee block.
