RBK owns Jofa now, their protective gear is that same Jofa line.
This is pretty much the most common shin in the NHL:

Lower end stuff isn't bad though. Modern lower end stuff is infinitely better then the top end stuff a decade ago. I personally use what's basically this: http://www.hockeymonkey.com/easton-s...hinguards.html (use a Synergy 300, but they rebranded their lines and such, that's basically the same thing).

It might help telling you where to go if you told us what shins you're using now. Typical is a meaningless word when talking about equipment, there is no typical.
I will check when I get home to see what I have.
