  1. Don't do it. Enough said.

    Best cup out there?

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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).
  8. 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.
  10. Echo the sentiment on Warrior Knee pads. Using Ritual X Pro's and they're absolutely amazing, and after 3 years, still minimal wear to them.
  11. no, not really. but thanks for checking coopy
  12. CCM Attack Cowling (the new minimalistic ones found on AS1). Very light, great attack angle. Has 4mm steel. I like it better than my cowlingless skates due to the more neutral pitch it has. I have it mounted to Reebok 16K skates. CCM Attack Cowling (the new minimalistic ones found on AS1). Very light, great attack angle. Has 4mm steel.

  13. The problem is, typically with the smaller manufacturers you do miss out on the bleeding edge technologies and innovation that is afforded to the main players via their much larger R&D budget. When you look at "softer" senior level pads like the CCM E4.9, Bauer 2X, RGT2 Senior, none are what you would consider a soft pad. With Brian's you have the Gnetik 8.0 whose chassis is based off of a much older OG Gnetik Pad, and no sliding tech has been added. With Vaughn their VE8 'Pro' as with their senior stuff is heavier, thicker, and lacks sliding tech too BUT does strike the softer pad want. I'm sure my pad preferences aren't too common anymore, and my terribly bad hips are an anomaly, but that said FFS, I'm only 27 haha.
  14. For someone with bad hips I'm disappointed that all the newer pads are getting stiffer and stiffer. Nothing *off the shelf* quite works for me without hip pain, and going up to pro/custom isn't in the books for me.
  15. I'll chime in as another Bauer 37.5 user. I have them in my player helmet too. Fantastic sweatbands and cheap too.
