Fair enough, but I'd still consider them mid-range. I mean, simply because it seems silly to do things like say: Top of the line, mid-top, mid-range, low-mid, bottom of the line. He also still included a glove that was essentially equal to the One55, and two that were only a step up so I'll still say "similar". To be fair, I wore the XXX for a loooong time and switched to XXXX about two years ago, so I only know the other gloves from wearing a buddies gloves when I didn't have a pair handy (for pickup or roller hockey in the summer) or fooling with them in a pro-shop.
