  1. Yeah ive been an elastic user since back in the day, being an in line goalie ive had to find different ways of strapping pads over the yrs These just need a bit of break in and dialing in. They rotate better than the gt for sure, they just feel bulky. Doesnt matter atm now as ive got an mcl sprain or worse
  2. Its 100% strapping. More the toe tie The tie is offset which pulled the boot out, they rotated well actually, with the straps tighter or loose. They just felt stiff on the leg. The knees blocks also larger than the gt vesrion, which feels to add to the illusion of bulk. I have a second training tonight, im going to try something else toe tie wise
  3. So i tried the g5 tonight, really didnt go down well Felt so awkward, bulky and just wouldn't sit right on my leg
  4. Agree, you dont see top straps to often anymore Im bot in the market for pads, just thought it would be a good topic I would love a set of optiks though
  5. I use warrior stuff atm, which as snr gear is softer When you get older and loose flexibility, and hip rage you need more flex in a pad, doesn't have to be soft but needs to flex
  6. Just watching bones unbox his new pads and it got me thinking, The new generation of pads are all very stiff boards made for people who are 6ft plus with no hip sockets. Then i got to thinking what about us old gits who dont bend to well anymore?? I recently unboxed and sent back warrior g5 and bauer 3s, both stiff pads, So bar the vast sizing jump, what pads are there available now that are softer, more flexible? You look at bauer, the vapor is stiff, ccm the efelex is stiff, even vaughns are stiff now. Are we destined to buying old pairs of beat up pads for e

    Warrior G5

    so finally had my first skate out in the g5 gloves, first skate since early march, was fun..ive learnt my knees still not healed from running, the gloves are a nice upgrade from the g4, i like the tighter strapping on the catcher, undecided if the coverage plus does anything, the blocker is more poppy than the g4, all in all nice upgrade, still debating a g5 pad upgrade over the gt pads i have
  8. yeah, i think its common knowledge that ccm run bigger, but what im getting at is in 15yrs my pad size has shrunk 5" lol
  9. its such a shame on the sizing thing, been there myself in brians, made that expensive mistake, i dont understand such a radical change in sizing, ive been a grown adult for a while now, and when i got my first new pads they were the vaughn v2 in a 35" pad, as were most of the pads i had round that time, slowly ive been going smaller and smaller to the point i cold actually use an intermediate pad in today's measuring terms, the new white pad looks nice tbf, ive always liked the look of the ccm stuff in the past, even bought some of the cheaper stuff, ive just been spoilt by
  10. Sorry i work in grams not lbs 8 just google converted The glove was 886g and blocker 855g These are snr level yes, not the pro version. Couldnt warrent it Jeez this forum
  11. slow down cowboy, you weighed them.... and yes weight matters, i mentioned it as most the ccm stuff ive ever owned and tried has been heavy, yes i know its no longer ccm my new glove with skate lace pocket weighs 1.95lbs and the blocker stock is 1.88lbs
  12. Its still heavy gear then isnt it, but suppose if its balanced you wont feel it wearing it. Be interesting to see if they rotate correctly for you, as quite a few ive seen have an issue with under rotation.
  13. When someone mentions exceeds as vintage 😭
  14. They wont answer Warrior seem to have disappeared atm in terms of social media. Your sizing question there the same
