Easton's: Smart cuff or no smart cuff? It seemed like a decent idea in the store but who really knows until you are out on the ice with a stick in your hand.

Eagle's & MIA's: Are they worth the money? Is their durablity and protection far above that of other gloves, or are you just paying for better materials?

Thoughts, opinions, and or rants...

You really can't go wrong with any high end glove, although I have to say I'm partial to my MIA's. Very expensive (almost $200.00) but a complete custom job. Very comfortable (think Eagle X70) and EXTREMELY lightweight. I couldn't really justify the expense (especially since I was using a fairly new pair of CCM Pro Tacks) but hey, what the heck?
