Thoughts on Some Gloves

Im looking for a new pair of gloves. Im going for the $80 range.

I saw some pro stocks on Hockeymonkey. What model are the RBKs?
http://www.hockeymonkey.com/rbk-pro-stock-gloves.html

some dont have the model

I tried on a few warrior, the AK and the Hitman, neither were anything special to me.

Im not a fan of the Mission gloves either. The Bauers and Eagle are nice but expensive. I like the Vapor XXXX but they are expensive

Does anyone have any experience with those RBKs or if you could recommend a pair id appreciate it

also is there an advantage to nylon over leather?

I have heard that RBK's are pretty decent gloves, pretty comfy and what not.

I only wear TPS gloves, always have. (think i had a pair of CCM's or Winn's when i was a wee one). But if i had to switch, the RBK's would get a serious looking at.


Your Warrior comments were dead on imo.

yea the RBKs looked pretty nice and the pro stock ones are real cheap and im assuming they are top of the line. Do you have leather gloves? im wearing old leather bauer gloves. I tried on a pair of nylon 6ks and they felt pretty comfortable

I would recommend the Nike/Bauer Vapor XXV's or Eagles. I know the Nike's are around 80 bucks, not sure about the exact model # for the Eagles, but they are a good fit.

hockeyoverstock.com has some TPS's and other deals too.

I have leather R6 and Nylon R4. I switch up every now and then when the stink gets a bit crazy and decontaminate the SOB.

In my experience leather gloves tend to hold their heat and stink more than synthetic ones, which tend have a better venting system. The nylon ones will probably last you longer as well...

Sport Fabreeze is always available to combat any stink with any gloves though

Bauer 4-Rolls. They cost right around your price range.

They're very snug around your hands and have excellent finger movement. The same goes with those Nike Vapors, they're not as bulky or oversized so you feel like you have better grip and control over the puck.

BTW, Nike isn't involved anymore. Nike sold off Bauer, it's just them. Nike is no longer involved in hockey except for team sponsorships- jerseys, socks and embroidering their logo on special order pants made by someone else.

Hey, I didn't want to start a new thread for this so I figured it would fit in here. I picked up a pair of easton synergy 1100 gloves for 40% off because I really needed a new pair. I know they are an older model because I couldn't find them on the easton website. Anybody have any thoughts or experiences with these?

I got a pair of TPS lately and I will probably stick with TPS for a long time. They are awesome.

That's about their second or third tier glove from 2 or 3 years ago now. That's still going to be a pretty good glove for you.

Curious - has anyone tried Oakley gloves?

At a local National Sports store, I picked up a pair of Easton Stealth S17's for...get this: $89.99...original price was $179.99

I hadn't intended to buy those gloves today, I targeted RBK 4K's for $79.99, but I fell in love with the S17's when I put them on

But I suppose you can't find those at that price where you are

Any 4-roll glove is the way too go. Warrior franchise's or bully's. Easton Pro-Rolls, Bauer 4-rolls, Any Eagle(the palm is excellent) CCM 4-roll gloves are very niice or actually the Farrell gloves are really good. Couple of guys on my team have them and they love them.

Never heard of those before, but they look like a lower end version of the Bauer 4 roll.

These are what people are talking about:
http://www.hockeymonkey.com/bauer-ho...4-roll-sr.html

Don't go with the warrior franchise unless you have the money to go custom, they really rip you off on the franchises. The retail ones don't have that great quality, the customs do, but run you $300.

Eastons, again, not so great construction on the retail ones, the pro ones are much better and can be found on e-bay fairly easily, and some shops carry them, easton makes it easy to order them.

Generally, if you want a 4 roll with good quality and price, the Bauer is usually the best.


I like tighter gloves though, so you won't catch me wearing any one of those.

The 8k and 9k would be a tighter fit, the pro tack would be a traditional 4 roll. All are great gloves.

You can also get some cool colorways with pro stocks.
