The problem was that the fingers were a bit too long, so when I tried to close my hand around the stick, it pulled the gloves off slightly. Basically it felt like I was playing with my gloves halfway off.

surprised you went with the pre-vaughn buyout as i think they felt the loosest of all 3.

I'd be the opposite in that case, I can't stand hockey gloves that fit like a pair of winter gloves, I like my gloves big and comfy, not tight and constricting.

Its really personal preference, I haven't gotten a chance to try on any of them, but it'd be nice to do a side by side comparison for sure.

The fit wasn't that different between them in all honesty, plus the newest was $200 and the others were $100.

its all preference, personally i like:

- tps r8s (supercomy... also much better than the r10s dont get suckered into the higher model #, nylon ftw)
- bauer 4 rolls (nice and roomy)
- bauer one70/one90 (the older model.... nice and wide at cuff, tapered at fingers, imo a very unique feeling glove)



also dont get suckered into the looks of leather .... nylon gloves outperform in almost EVERY category, its no wonder most of the highend gloves (and pro stock) are nylon
i like a smaller glove (tight on the palm/fingers) size 13, just wish i could get one with a dirty wide opening on the cuff (like the one70s) one that size of glove

I don't know if I would call it getting "suckered into the looks of leather" as much as its just personal preference. I like the feel and richness of leather, over the cheapness of nylon. Where you like your gloves tight, I like mine loose. I can't stand gloves that are tight, I like them big and roomy, its just what I like, I wear size 15"+. I may try a pair of nylon's though, just to see if all the hype is what it seems.

try bauer vapors on. i am kinda in the same boat an had touble finding a good fitting 13" (I mainly wanted it to be long enough to connect with my elbow pads, but i like a tight fitting glove). finally someone told me the vapors fit tight, so i tried one. never had a better fitting glove. i think most manufacturers would size bauer vapor 13"s as 12.5".

hope it helps.

i don't think they'd be tight enough. i had xxxx pro's and now have x60 pro's and both fit (after break-in) looser than my ppfi's.

If you like an older style leather glove I would recommend the Eagle H34's.
Although they are now longer made, you can occasionally find some used ones one ebay or kijiji.

They are all Goatskin; both glove and palm. When they first started making them I believe they were made with horse leather, but they soon after changed their production to goat.

I think these gloves got bumped into second place after I got the XXX's. Sweet gloves.
