They are indeed heavily used. I have seen used pads in hockey shops in better condition.

I am not trying to be mean, but anything over $100 for these pads is a joke.

- sorry, not sure where you are from. But that $100 was in canuck bucks.

Ya, I was going to say about 75-125. I'd probably go the full 125 if he was willing to go have them cleaned up, and disinfected etc. The sweat is the main concern to me, otherwise the pads look in great shape.

I have RBK's that I bought new two years ago for 399 ( somewhere around there).... In any event (and stricly my opinion) I would not pay nearly two hundred bucks for a pair of pads that are already fraying, and rusting at the fasteners. Not to mention, they don't look like they were taken care of, the straps seemed stained from water saturation and the pads themselves appear swelled - that combined with the rust, appear they were not wiped and hung after each use.

Who would buy a car off someone who never got the oil changed?

If you can't get them for $100 or less - yes. Go to a sports outlet that sells used pads if you are going to pay in that range (of 175) and you will get pads in better condition.

Those look like old pro level premier 1's I believe that retailed for well over 1000. 175 wouldn't be a rip off in my opinion, pro level pads last a looooot longer than brand new cheapo's.

You can buy last years Premiere's new for about 500 bucks (admittedly if you can find them in stock).

So paying roughly 40% of that for used ones is the rip.

again - all in my opinion. Ragss could be right, and I may just like hearing myself talk.

What condition are the knee stacks in? Playing in a set of pads with ****** knee stacks will take the fun out of things PDQ.

Don't buy used RBK pads, new ones are bad enough.

wow really? Do you guys know any sort of faq or source for information about what pads are quality and what arent. I dont think the seller knows the pads arent in good condition. Im not sure if i should even bother with asking him to lower his price.


Thanks for all the help you guys! You really saved me!

Alot of it is just common sense, in this case, you can clearly see the reasons (as I've mentioned above). Barring that, buy pads the same way you would buy fruit in a grocery store..
