New gear with pics

Well i picked up goalie last november on my birthday. played "out" since I was 3 (now almost 25). Bought pads, blocker, catcher, chest and used player helmet, skates, pants and yes even cup.

Man I cant believe the chest protector I first used

So over the months I keep upgrading my gear.

$200 new


$50 used 1 season


$50 used 1 season (not my actuall blocker)


Still use these pads ($150), player pants, and catcher ($50). A new stick and an actual goalie jock was an amazing christmas present...ask my g/f




To all looking for great deals just keep chattin at the rink and keep checkin the local used sports stores.

i wouldnt pay anything over $20 for shin guards. And im sure you would score on me eventually. Even the worst players can score since they are so unpredictable. Goalie has been a FUN eye opening experience for me. What started out as a "new rush" for my hockey career has even helped my offensive game when i play forward. Neat being on both sides

I played goalie once. Never will do it agian. good luck man. there is a goalie in our mens league here that is horrid if you have a set play or set up and shoot from the points but on the break away is amazing.

Don't get your hopes with those pads. My buddy has a set and they are starting to break down in his first year of play on them. The straps are all breaking and the stiching is coming out. I call him the ''patch-work pads'' because there are alot of tape jobs on the straps and home made fixs to keep them together.

Sounds like your buddy is wearing htem incorrectly and/or not taking good care of his gear. Those are a Bfly pad and straps should be loose. The only breakage comes from wearing htem tight. That also tends to put huge stress on the seams and starts to pull the stitching apart. If you let your gear freeze when wet, it will also fall apart rapidly.....Poor care means short gear life. Those RBKs should last well if proper wear and care is used.

good call duder. Mine are in great shape still, other than all the black marks from all the awesome saves I make I wear mine pretty loose too with all the tension in the toe /heel laces/strap and the first strap.

I totally HATE puck marks on my pads. I clean them off right after I play. What mask is that? Looks like an Ollie but hard to tell with the paint.

Its a mask made by WJD pro. I'd say its closer to toskala's mask with slight variations in design and color. I need to go get a new cat eye cage for it still. Ive tried the "stock" cage for a bit and although its not that bad, I still need to change it.
