So right now I have a set of 34" CCM Blockades . I just cant seem to get them to fit on me correctly and turn over. It seems like one side will only get about a half turn. I have read because this is due to the calf rise that CCM added. Has anyone else worn these pads, and what were your reactions to them? I did my measurements and they are pretty close to the 34 (9.5 skate size, 18 AtK, 7ish thigh). I bought these used (barely, they don't really have any marks on them at all) from a local shop, but they were pretty pricey (300) so I would like to keep them around if I could. Any ideas or tips and tricks?
p.s. I cant take the pads out right now, my son is sleeping and i don't want to wake him.
