New gloves, opinions wanted

Im looking at prostock missions (fuel) and these: http://www.hockeymonkey.com/eagle-ho...e-x5-2009.html

but I have some questions on top material. What is the difference between something like pro stock, which seems to be mostly knit on top, vs nylon on top vs leather on top.
The only real difference I can think of would have to do with ripping if you fall or whatever. Are pro stocks worth the money? Should I just go for those Eagles?

I would assume that Pro stock was meant for NHL talent, so they would automatically get the best, so shouldn't those blow shelf stuff out of the water?

I don't have any advice for you here on this, I am a guy who just buys whatever is comfortable and fits what I have for cash on hand at the moment.

Those are wicked nice gloves though .... God bless ya if you get em.

I have a gift cert to HM, otherwise I would buy from my LHS. My LHS does not carry Eagle or pro stock however.

I'd go with Easton E-Pro's if your budget is between $80-90.

You have to think what is most comfortable for you, and what will last the longest. Pro players probably replace their gloves every game, you want your's to last for a few years (well I do anyways)

On my college team a bunch of the guys had eagle gloves and they loved them.

Dear god don't.

Out of the HM pro stock missions, the L7s are probably your best bet, especially if you want a more traditional cut on the glove.

Knit tops offer a lighter, already-broken-in feel, While leather will be more durable and stiff.

As far as $80-$90 range... Bauer 4 rolls for a loose fitting glove, TPS R8 for a more traditional fit are my recommendations.

It's hard to get more traditional than 4 rolls. Also, nylon in the 90 dollar range, or in those mission pro stocks, will usually outlast leather gloves. It's the nylon on say the 20 dollar bottom of the line CCM gloves where you'll have problems.

interesting. Pro stocks are still an option, but I would like the palms to last for say, more than a seasons worth of hard use. I'm still wondering about those Eagles, theres no reviews anywhere, but Eagle has a good brand rep, so in short, I still don't know what I'm getting

I was thinking about buying the Eagles, trying them on, seeing how they are and whatnot, and If I dont like the feel, I can return them for the pro stocks. With the PS' I cant return, so this way I can still "try before I buy" in a way.
