Yeah. They are 11 inch. They took a while to get used to, but now I do feel more mobile in them. The smaller pads really dont make much of a difference in your game. The thing I find makes the largest difference is the smaller trapper(Im still able to block all the shots, just about 25% of the time I cant catch it anymore). All the equipment is NHL sizing.
I didnt want to go down the size but I decided I should since theres a possibility I might tryout for JR in 2 or 3 years, and we got an amazing deal on the pads through an NHL player so I decided to make them last since I would never be able to afford equipment of this quality.(worth like 2000-2500$ for the pads + blocker and trapper. But I got them for 500$ combined, has my name stitched onto them and everything).
So its better to make these last so if I do make the switch that I dont have to get new pads + spend more money.
