Helmet - never been wowed, although my current M11 has a cool fitting system
Shoulders - my Reebok 4k's were really impressive because the shoulders and abdomen are separated, so it moves really well and doesn't slide up like most others I've used
Gloves - using TPS R8's with plastic inserts, I don't get bruised fingers when blocking shots or taking slashes anymore
Pants - my Tackla 9000's let me block shots without getting bruised due to the additional padding
Skates - had two moments, first was moving from $75 skates to $250 Vapors...they pitched me on my toes a bit more and with the stainless steel I felt more glide. With my Grafs, my heel/ankle didn't slide around so I could use my edges a lot more and the lower cut let me maneuver easier.
Sticks - used a Battleaxe BX10 and the thing just launched snap shots harder than anything before or since
