I'm looking at the new RBK pads, the senior ones and am wondering what people think about them? I've heard some really positive feedback on them from another goalie who's seen them but was looking for anyone who plays in them or knows someone who plays in them?
My biggest problem currently is that my ones are too bulky and are inhibiting my ability to move well as they are heavy.
P.s. What's the advice on the blockers and catchers form the same series? big make on the catcher? smaller? Mine's a little to huge.. my hands are rather small.
I bought a pair of 32" pads and they feel good (I was about 5'2 last season). I don't have the senior RBKs, but I have the senior Koho 490, which area about the same, although I have heard the seniors RBK are better. If you find them too bulky you could try 11" wide intermediate pads in the 32" heigth. The RBK catcher is smaller than the Itech 4.8 catcher. If it's just for roller, that would be fine.
