Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use
Cons: awkward bicep pieces
Especially purchasing these shoulder pads while on sale, I think they are great for the price. I've taken quite a few hits, pucks, and sticks to these pads and have definitely felt protected well. They make me feel pretty comfortable when blocking shots as well. I was surprised with the quality and comfortability the pads have provided. The only feature that I feel is a con is the bicep pieces as they are forced to overlap with my elbow pads, although, they do not hinder my gameplay.
