  1. Thanks so much for the advice. I think you mimick a lot of what my in store opinions were. I’m likely more suited for an intermediate palm and I felt my hand was more secure and had more closing leverage in the genetik IV. I also really liked the feel of the boa as I like my hand to feel secure. The warrior wrist mobility feels great but I almost seemed to slip away when I’d try and shut the glove. Again appreciate you insight, just need to figure out if it’s worth spending almost double the price and not finally having an all matching set ha.
  2. Not to hijack this thread but wondering if anyone has played with both the gnetik IV and g4. /gt2. I'm looking at new gloves and have g4 pads and blocker. Everyone raves about warrior gloves but they look off to me and don't feel that great to me in store. But I have heard alot of people say the same but also say they perform amazing despite this. Basically wondering if anyone has experience with both on ice and their personal thoughts. Also wondering if anyone knows the difference in weight as I find that really important in a glove. Thanks!
  3. I’ve never heard of anyone else using it but I use a football receiver glove. Great grip and for me has lasted 10x longer than any golf glove.
  4. Was hoping to get some feedback. I ordered a protechsport a while back and I know I’ll have 0 issues with the quality of the mask, but was wondering what everyone’s thoughts were on the matte black. I’ve seen a couple pictures of protechsports in matte black and they just seem off. Whenever I see an otny or some other manufacturer i love the look of it in matte. Curious on others opinions on this and if I’m the only one that thinks this?
  5. I agree with the thought that we average folk shouldn’t just blindly copy the pros. However, the dangler provides no real competitive advantage (or belief of one) nor is it likely anyone finds it more comfortable than not having one. It basically only serves as protection therefore I think it was a pretty relevant comment. If the guys who seek every possible performance advantage are willing to deal with it and possibility decrease vision at the cost of protection I think that says something.

    CCM---->Warrior Sizing

    Don’t have a definitive answer but I had an eflex 3.9 34 and with warrior my knee was better suited with a 35.

    I can't remember if it was this site or ggsu, but someone said they sold their g4s because they felt the air slide reduced their glide due to a narrow bfly. Was the first I had heard of that.
  9. I honestly think the graphic has a lot to do with some people not taking warrior pads seriously. That and some people associate not being in the nhl as not being good enough.
  10. Although my comparison isn’t exactly the same (g4 senior vs ccm E3.9 pads)I agree with a lot of your comments. I agree the premiere aesthetics for my tastes are much nicer. The weight difference in my sets especially with the 3.9 likely being much heavier than even the premier 2s is very noticeable. Unlike you, I like to think weight in a glove matters for speed and likely is why I’m going to try the g4 glove over a ccm despite hating the look of the warrior. With the pads I could never get the strapping of the 3.9 to be comfortable. I expect getting new toe ties may have helped as putting enough knots in the tie to reduce strain on my ankle and knee made the pads too sloppy despite liking a loose fit. Also agree that the thicker thigh rises seemed to bother me whereas I barely ever notice interference despite a bigger pad with the g4s. As you stated, just my opinion, and not the same comparison but I liked the warrior pad better performance wise even if I don’t like the look.
  11. Was just wondering if someone could show me what the carrying straps look like? Just bought the g4 Sr and don't think I have it. Thanks.

    Ya. Had bought a new pair of Eflex 3.9s, and just can’t get used to them. Coming from custom Pete smiths and everything I’ve read, can’t wait to get the g4s.

    I’m likely doing the exact same thing. First murdered out set, but unlike you I may get the gloves. They look strange to me and don’t feel quite right, but every review and everyone I know that’s tried it loves it. I might regret it but I’m going to assume it performs better than it initially looks and feels.

    I was planning to get some g4 seniors. I dont need them until September and was going to wait for a price drop. However I can get them now new for 799 cad, is this a ridiculous price I should jump on even though they are not in my ideal colors. Or do you guys assume I can get them in the 800-875 range anyways if I wait till September? Having a hard time deciding and the sale ends tomorrow. Thanks for the help!
