Caveat: I will be looking in the clearance section for the majority to save on some money; cheap and serviceable is my MO here.
The essentials (I must buy these to play in the ice league)
RBK 3K Sr.
CCM V04 Sr.
Both are 29.99, but both are available in Small only. Do you think I can get away with Small? Or are these trash and I should pay a bit more for better models? Or can I even go for Jr. Large?
CCI V06 Sr.
49.99, Medium should fit me just fine. How are these?
Absolutely no idea... recommendations?
Ooo Tappy, you are from Coquitlam. I think you should take a stop by The Hockey Shop in Surrey. They are having a decent sale.
I know your budget for shoulders seems to be $30. But i saw Mediums to XXL in Bauer Pro Defenders for $49.99 at THS. Regular Price is $200... so its a deal to be had. If i didn't already have a pair of shoulders, i'd pick one up. Most ppl really like them.
And they also had some lower end models for less than $50, but better than the ones you listed. I think I saw a Rbk by Jofa 5K Shoulders for $30 at THS. Looks like this:
I don't know what your preference is on used, but i saw used Tacklas 5000 on Craigslist yesterday for $25. Looked to be in a good condition and no it wasn't me selling. So personally, i wouldn't mind looking there as well.
Also, Sportchek is clearing out most gear from '09. Yes, i know they used to have poor selection, but they recently turned into Hockey Experts in most locations; i believe the Lougheed location is as well. Free Sharpening till the end on this month - they may have Flat Bottom V at Lougheed so its worth a try for free.
For my helmet, i just got a new one. The Pro Stock Mission Intake EPP from Hockeymonkey. Many people consider it one of the better ventilated helmets and its a decent weight - no the lightest, but not heavy either. And its pretty cheap since they are being cleared out.
