Just bough these from Total Hockey in Downers Grove IL. I was always intrigued by Pete Smith designed pads. I looked at the Senior pad, also the custom. I felt for the money I would go with the pro pad made overseas. I have only used them once so far, this is what I can say:
Coverage is good, solid ice seal, butterfly closure better than I expected.
I am coming from Reebok Premier 2 very open leg channel. The Ritual was a little snug, but after a few adjustments on the calf wrap and knee channel I was OK.
First shot when hugging post hit the calf wedge, it actually worked.
The sliding is unbelievable. It took a little getting used to, not much resistance. The knee Chanel is nice, just fits over knee pads, not very roomy but adequate. The thigh protection with the pads is pretty thin, i used my Revoke Knee pads and removed what came with the Rituals.
I would say if you are a butterfly of hybrid do not hesitate to get this pad,
