I think it's pretty much longevity; as I implied, cheap ruined pads and expensive high quality ruined pads are still ruined pads...
He plays in a local inline league, I don't know if $1k pads are gonna make him a better goalie than 200$ pads (if anything, more weight might be an issue). That being said, I guess he'd be a hybrid. He has problems pushing on the sportcourt when down, so his lateral movement is on his skate cowlings, not his pads. His current pads are worn out and ripped along the inside bottom as a result.
Granted anything will be better than what he has now (see the first post) : they're very narrow, there is no pad extension along the inside, and they don't roll out completely when he goes into the butterfly [or maybe its just him
