Well as in a previous post, I believe that the U+Pros are the best shoulder pad to come out in retail in a while so definitely look there. Their explosion in popularity among the pro, minor pro and major junior ranks over the past...3 years (?) really testifies to that as well.

The Fit09 and the U+12 are comparable, but I'm not a fan of the new shoulder pad line as I feel that they are too flimsy and short, with more higher profile caps (though the NHL-spec cap on the CL and CS is the saving grace imo). Between these two, I would select based on whichever one feels more comfortable, but would opt for the Fit09 if trying them on is not possible.
