  1. Agreed @Quadzilla32. 1st pic is most accurate imo. Straightest measurement.
  2. Not that it matters cause ftk sizing, but how tall are you guys? I'm 5'6" in my G2's but they've settled in the boot channel, and I land near the top of the landing gear now. 5'6 is listed as 32". I don't remember how much of an issue it was when I first got them. But were so stiff, especially in the boot break, it took over a year before I really liked them ( only playing a few times a month back at that time.) The knee elastic was not a good design, and I should have changed them out much sooner than I did. I feel like I could wear a 33" now, but a 33" might be super tall and clunky. Maybe I'd be better off in the GT series, if I need a softened G series. But I also need to make my pads last 6 years or more. On the opposite end, I've also considered getting intermediate 32+1's to save cash and increase mobility.
  3. I was going to say, make sure you are not using skate lace if you are having rotation issues. The Warrior system isn't bad, it can feel too tight though. Search VOG toe tie mod on YouTube for some ideas if you want it looser. I recommend picking up Prolaces TGN spec and ditching the Warrior elastic.
  4. What are you using for toe ties?
  5. Won't measuring from the front of the knee to the floor require you to wrap the tape down the left or right side of the foot, increasing the length or is that taken into account? Because if I do it the way you say it, it is definitely 20 inches instead of 19, putting me in a 33 or 34 inch. Looks like I measured it per the Warrior chart below.
  6. Yeah, my knee was centered on the knee stack when I first got them, but they are more towards the top now that the boot has sunk where it sits on top of my skate. My short term fix was to duct tape some foam to make a poor mans boot riser. I may eventually make something out of jenpro or PAW makes some Warrior specific boot risers that are not listed on their website, but she'll send you pics and info if you email them.
  7. Here is my ftk measurement
  8. I've worn my G2 elastic around the back of the ankle of my old Bauer One60's with no Lundy loop with no issue. Works fine and as intended. I'm 5'6" and my G2's are 32+1.5 Sr. Not sure if sizing changed between G2 and G3.
  9. Hi and welcome to the board. I own neither, but after my research and echoing others here on the board: GT2 Senior will be the same internals as the GT Pro, so, no downgrade there. They feel like two different gloves due to the thumb angle change on the GT2, and that is what it should boil down to. I would love to get a GT on clearance right now, but I hate the way the glove, and all previous Warrior gloves, felt on my hand. I love the way the new thumb angle feels because it feels like my last two gloves (Simmons 995 and 996), which let me catch like how I learned to catch when I played baseball. It feels more natural to me, so I would go GT2. But, I'm not you. Any way you can order both and return the one you don't like if you can't try them on somewhere?

    Wear on pads

    Thanks. I'm sure I read that on the GSBB (RIP originally goalie bible o' wisdom (thank you TGN for creating GSBB 2 😄)) at some point, not my idea. I just gave my pads an overhaul with Lectric Shave cleaning as well as Shoe Goop touched up 2 small skate cuts and 6 tiny wearspots, just like the pic, on my G2's and they are ready to continue to rock and roll.

    Wear on pads

    I would just put a thin layer of shoe goop there.
  12. Welp. Now is probably not the best time to inquire about anything that is community shared. Just gonna leave it at that. Some retailers and small manufacturers had demo programs, but I doubt you will find anything. Is this a joke thread? Did I just fall for it?
