  1. From what I remember, Simmons had the UL series, which was a Vaughn copy, and the 99* series, which copied RBK/Reebok. At least the pads were that way. I thought they mixed the gloves up though between series, but maybe it was the glove and blocker being mixed vs gloveset vs pads.

    Warrior G5

    There's a picture somewhere on the forum showing the toe system options. The standard toe bridge that's been on previously releases is gone. There's still a spot to attach a lace, but it is different.
  3. The finger curling appears to be prominent on older models, while in more recent years, they beefed it up some and it does not curl as easily anymore.
  4. Here's a G3 set that should work: https://www.goaliemonkey.com/clearance/accessories/warrior-goalie-accessories-ritual-g3-leather-strap-kit.html

    Warrior G5

    Congrats. Pro or Senior?
  7. I think some brands differ between quality and technology between their senior and intermediate models, but the bigger consideration is intermediate is generally 10.5" vs 11" seniors. Not 100% on Bauer's but that's the way most brands do it. I wear a Warrior G2 in 32+1.5 and could fit into an intermediate 32+1, but my legs are not struggling to move the pad around, so I am stuck on the seniors for now. Although the thought of a lighter pad has been tempting when contemplating my next set.
  8. Sick mask, it's gorgeous. Beautiful. Love the paint job. What are you going to pad it with this time?
  9. The main differences appear to be that the Senior+ model has, in addition to what is already listed on the Senior model: 1. Double-shield front elbow floater( you can see the extra pad tucked in under the elbow on the +). 2. Chest block design for maximum protection (counting the lower belly extension, the Senior+ has 4 visible blocks below the floaters, vs the 3 visible on the senior. So is it just longer? I don't know!). 3. Removable front/side chest pad extentions (Seems self explanatory, should allow a bit more customization).
  10. Don't forget pro+! Four confusing options to choose from! Just kidding, but here's a screenshot of the rundown on each from the brochure that is available on this website. Upgraded foams will be the biggest difference between the lines, but the Senior to Pro+ differences will be a huge jump in tech and quality (I assume).
  11. Thanks for the idea. So I did this to help share the load of the rear strap that connects to my c/a. I felt the single webbing would not be enough over time.

    Warrior G5

    Thanks for the mask pics! I would try the elastic that comes with the G5's first and then go to the Prolaces if you don't like it. I wore my G2 elastics up until last year when they were too stretched out and finally went with the Prolaces, which are fantastic. But I was fine with stock at first.
  13. Thanks for all the comments Chenner29, I really appreciate it. Love my Simmons 995 after almost 10 years of use, it's really held up well. I've gotten the occasional stinger in it since day 1, but it's not often. Simmons "modeled" it after a RBK P1 from what I remember the old owner stating, and in 2010, as now, there were no more new P1's, just used models getting passed around between new users. So I got that 995 for 3-4 hundred dollars and it has worked out well for me. I cut out the throat protection within the 1st week because I have a short neck and wore a dangler at the time (now a Maltese combo only) and have not had one issue. Some other small mods here and there, but overall, wouldn't mind getting another from Simmons again. But this Kenesky just has something about it that is very similar and I really wish I could try one on.
  14. How much does that run and did you show them the pics? Do they give that amount of protection stock to NHL'ers? Going to have to replace my Simmons 995 at some point in the next year I think, so I'm researching now.
