    Is it really 3.8lbs for the weight of the G5 pro leg pad and 4.6lbs for the weight of the senior G5 leg pad? Is that a typical difference seen between pro and step below pro from other vendors?

    Anyone know where I can get the G5 pro removable palm for glove and blocker? Have pro pads but want to get an extra set the 90 and 60 degree palms as well...Im in USA. Goalie Monkey doesnt have them and I could not find any place online that I knew of. Thoughts?

    @jfu91 can you tell me a few things about these new G5 pads. 1. The G4 pads look to be an inch smaller, is this due to the boot being softer as you used the pads? 2. What made you decided to go from brown as secondary with G4 to black as secondary with G5? 3. Did you go with with Medium Stiff ( stock) or X-Stiff for the thigh rise?
  4. @Kirk3190, I have been through this forum and through many websites that sell both the senior and pro G5 leg pads and want to understand the difference in internals, breaks and externals between both pads. I am trying to figure out if going pro leg pads for the G5 is worth the $700 difference. The two differences I am aware of is the Pro leg pad does not come with profile lock but does come with stiffer thigh rise with hyper comp, where the senior pad comes with profile lock and the thigh rise isnt as stiff.. If I am going to do a pro leg pad I would have to go through Monkey Sports as that is the only local shop I have in my area. I would like to know the true differences between pro and senior leg pads retro style as far as internals and any external differences. If I go pro, I would be doing a custom retro set up and wonder if there are many additional options I can do with the custom leg pads as far and internal and external changes. I have never had pro leg pads, let alone pro custom leg pads so this would be a new thing for me getting pro custom. I have initially wore P3 rebooks, moved to Bauer One90, Brians subzero 2 (Senior level), and currently in CCM Eflex 2 (senior 860). I am not sure if the profile lock can be asked to be added back to the pro custom set or if it is not an option for a reason. How much is the weight for G5 pro leg pad compared to G5 senior leg pad. I believe my current Eflex 2 Senior pads are 6lbs each...

    Great information from @Kirk3190 about the G5 gear and breaking down product and mind-set behind the equipment.

    Customizer goes live this upcoming monday at midnight EST. Excited to see what I can get custom on this pad (colors, weaves, and any customer options like the professor strap or getting the internal foam even more stiffer than what comes standard on custom orders and pro retail model).
  7. @indykrap when you say 'stored upside down', are you referring to have them stored upside down where thighrise is on the ground vertical and the weight of the pad is push down on the thigh rise or are you hanging them upside down from a closet or something?
  8. @coopaloop1234 did you wear the strap around the knee or on the upper calf? Did that strap it self being of some elastic base, stretch over time? If I went to warrior would they sell me replacement elastic straps if needed or is there a place online that would sell that kind of stuff?
  9. @Nohtaram Can you give me some more insight on how to changed out the velcro on the strapping system? Did you have remove the threading around the current velcro on the strapping system, remove the velcro and then place new and sew back on? I have never done a mod before except adding pro laces so unsure of how you went about this. Pictures would be helpful as well to see the after pictures of the changes you did.

    @Kirk3190 will G5 senior and pro senior comes as retro tan with the retro graphic and knee rolls like the G4 had for store retail versions?

    Has anyone had issues with their current warrior G4/GT2 Velcro strapping? Curious if anyone has had issues and if with G5’s warrior is going to fix that. I currently have an issue with my glove on the outer cuff where the Velcro sticks but only for a short period of time and then the at outer cuff start flapping in the middle of a play. Looking at getting warrior pads but am wondering if there are Velcro issues on the pads.
  12. For all the guys who are currently using the G4 or GT2 senior and pro pads. the Velcro strapping around the calf and knee, had anyone had issues with the Velcro starting to not be as sticky as it once was? My G3 glove I currently use where the external cuff meeting the side of the glove with Velcro, the Velcro doesn’t keep it locked for long before it start flapping during play. Wondering if there is an issue like this with the strapping system. I know the pro pad for the knee wrap had the buckle but would it be worth it to go for the pro pads just bff or the buckle if there were Velcro issues.
  13. I just sent and email and received a response in about 15 minutes.
  14. I am new to the forum. How do I get a hold of Michel. I have a few questions about the colors to see what they actually look like.
  15. I love the G2 classis C/A. When I bought if from goalie monkey, I took it in after a few games and compared it to the senior and pro G4 and GT. The G2 quality is very comparable to the G$ and GT pro. The foam upgraded in the arms and and shoulders are of higher standard than the senior models. Also you can feel the weight difference. The only issue with G2 is some of the threads are coming undone but I simply cut them and burn with a lighter and it stops that. NO issues with the chest protector at all. Took a few shots to the arms, chest, heartguard and stomach without any bruises and didnt feel much from the impact. The foam allows the puck to hit the shoulders and deflect away from the body of it the puck hits the C/A square, it just deadens right in front of you to make an easy recovery and save.
