What's a better shoulder pad?
I know that the Jofa 9400 shoulder pad became the RBK 7K shoulder pad. However, Reebok made a few improvements to the 9400 before they released it as the 7K, but I'm not too sure what those improvements were. My question is, what is a better pad for the money, the 7K for $80 new, or the 9400 for $40 clearance?
I've looked at the RBK's in a store and I really can't tell the difference. Maybe the improvements where adding the RBK logo.
I just looked at them again. I hadn't noticed the RBK's now have a exposed plastic shoulder and biceps protectors. The Jofa's have the covered plastic pieces.
The RBK gear is sweet, huh?!? I've got the 8k shin and elbow pads. (I got Easton Synergy 900 shoulder pads.) This occurred when I ditched the Koho 4460 gear I started out playing with. (The Koho gear was great for the price, actually.)
I often vist the www.Epinions.com website to read the hockey product reviews. A guy called Puckmugger (Scott Noble), from Colorado, does some great reviews.
Here, for example, is his review of the Jofa RBK shoulder pads. Scott does a great job of explaining the RBK "JDP" function - joint discharge principle: http://www.epinions.com/content_226608844420
Scott's reviews also help explain the differences and similarities, if any, between (new) RBK and (old) Jofa products. Have a look!
