I didnt want to go down the size but I decided I should since theres a possibility I might be playing 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 when/if I do make the switch that I dont have to get new pads + spend more money.
Yeah, I definitely think you made the right choice then, may as well get used to the stuff now. After HS all I did was intramural and now beer league stuff, so I dont see a reason for it. Mostly everyone says the glove is the hardest thing to get used to, so im definitely sticking with my glove.
