Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
The Reebok 11K shoulder pads are a perfect example of why top of the line equipment is worth the money. All the protection you'll ever need, and yet they're very light and extremely manueverable. Clavicle pads and bicep guards are adjustable, so you can customize to your liking. The pads move with you - it never feels like they're out of place. Completely comfortable too. The moisture wicking liner does its job perfectly. Sure, they get sweaty, but they never retain moisture and weigh you down. Finally, I have to comment on the Zigtech liner and the claim that it transmits energy and increases blood oxygen levels. Like most of you reading this, I was pretty skeptical about those claims. Sounded like classic marketing hype to me. Well, I'm very happy to tell you that it's actually true! I also have the 11K shin guards and elbow pads, which all feature the Zigtech feature. Working together, it DOES make a difference. Kind of gives your muscles a warm feeling, like they're instantly loose and ready to go. In other words, I feel as good late in the 3rd period as I do in the first minute of the game. Amazing! Conclusion: if you're in the market for new shoulder pads, the search is over. Highly recommended!
