Yeah the XR4 is getting replaced, it came in a package deal of used gear. It works alright, but it is light on the padding. I'm saving up for one of Sara's.

I love learning the position, but there is a ton of work involved. Starting at 17 should make it much easier than starting at 29 though! Skating is really key though. You can't get too much icetime.
if you have the money now, order a custom protechsport from michel doganieri. its 300 bucks for a full fiberglass one and you get a custom fit to your head mold and you also get lifetime warranty.
