That's a good point. I called DelVal hockey, about an hour away, and they have the 9000's in a 48 and a 50 in stock so I'm going to drive out there and try both on to get the correct waist size. I'll just add +2" to the legs to get a feel for where each would come to on my knees and go with whatever is best overall. He said he can order the +2's and have them in 3-4 days. That will give me a chance to look at the protection as well in the hip bone area. I'm only buying them if they'll resolve my issue. I mean I can add padding to my Bauers as easy as the Tacklas so I'm not spending $150 to modify something.

$149 sound about right?
