I was totally going to snag a pair of these on the cheap back in '06 but decided to spend the money on a pair of newly rebranded RBK/Jofas instead...
Fast forward to present day and I have made a frankenpad using the shoulder caps from said RBK/Jofa pads and the chest protector from the new CCM 1899 pads. I use this setup for stick and puck as well or friendly pick up games. However, I'm all business in league games and wear CCM U+ 09 pads due to my history with shoulder injuries.
