Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, they look awesome!
I play beer league hockey and occasional organized drop-in so I never felt the need to purchase extremely expensive pads. I checked my reviews and youtube videos and made the decision to take the gamble on them. I was extremely impressed with what I got! They might not have ALL of the features the pro series do but they are a major upgrade to what I'm used to. Took about 5 games to get them truly dialed in and to get used to how well they slide. I actually slid out of position a couple times... I'm now a loyal Pete Smith fan! Once you get them how you want them, they will improve your game, at least they did for me!
