Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
Cons: yea none.
Picked these up in store to replace an older set of Itech RX-5's that I bought when I started. Night and day difference. They are a little heavier, but fit and move better so they actually 'play' lighter.
Having all the straps and the luxury of moving or completely removing a couple is nice. I've had them on tight and lose, and either way they fly around the crease with me and seal to the ice every time. Missing a completely adjustable knee lock like the Bauer line, oh well.
Kicks bigger rebounds than my older pads, but their still new. I also like throwing pucks into the corners anyways, so its not a problem. There is no concern with taking heavy slappers either, just kick them away like anything else!
Overall a fantastic purchase, only issue is that they didn't have all whites in stock, but when you're anxious, who cares. The little splash of silver pops just enough and can easily be matched with color wise when buying other brands. Worth the money if you're not playing high level.
