Pro stock hockey gloves

Has anybody already tried some or actually own a pair. Apparently they're much more resistant than "retail" gloves and are built to last much longer. What's your opinion?

I find that pro seems alittle more protective then the retail models. It looks like a good deal, I would say to get them. I would get them but then I would have 4 pair of gloves hanging around, including RBK. If you want a pretty good glove try the SHerwood Lite models, they are outstanding!

We used to have the AHL affiliate for the Mighty Ducks when they owned by disney here in Cincinnati. Every year they cart off their extra new and used equipment to Play it Again Sports. I bought a new pair of NHL quality JOFA gloves there for about $60 or so. That was probably three or four years ago. These gloves are great. They are super comfortable, very duarable and as the previous poster mentioned have some extra protection that I don't see in normal retail gloves. They have extra little plastic inserts on the top of the fingers to further protect against slashes for example.

My vote is go for the overstock glove. I don't think you'll regret it.

A lot of what I've read about pro stock gloves is that they are usually much more protective with plastic inserts and padding, but the palms are usually a lot thinner for better feel. That means the palms could wear through a lot quicker than regular gloves. BUT, if you get a deal on some pro stock gloves, even game worn, you can have them repalmed for under $50 or so and get a very protective glove with more durable palms.

That's awesome. Why do they put that in the dumpster? Couldn't they sell it or even give it away?

I have the old maroon green and black Phoenix gloves (Bauer 5000 15'). I bought them almost two years ago from hockey giant for 100 bucks. They have been used at least twice a week since I've purchased them. Mostly outdoors on a cement roller rink but also indoor roller and ice. They have withstood the test of time amazingly. Friends I play with have already gone through 2 pairs each of mid level (XV/old surpremes/ tps bionics) gloves. The palm is flawless. The only blemish is on the fingers/thumb due to hitting cement. I would buy another pair again in a heart beat.

If you're in a position to try on gloves, I wouldn't overlook Warrior Dolomites. They fit unlike any other glove I've ever tried on, are very protective, and extremely comfortable (especially the palms which are real soft). I'm waiting to see how the palms hold up as I really like to dig the butt end of my stick into the top one, and my lower hands index finger seems to take some abuse too, but so far so good.

I believe you can find pro stock warrior gloves around too, if you keep looking.

I bought the team Switzerland ones for the same reason and had the same results. Best gloves I've ever had.

Recently bought a pair

I ended up bitting on the RBK pro series gloves. Here are my initial feelings on them, please keep in mind that I am still a bit of novice (I only started playing two years ago).

Palms: They feel good. I personally like a tight glove, but I don't do to much in
the way of puck handling. These gloves have a little more slack then I'd
prefer, but I hear that more offensive minded players like this for stick
control. They are still mostly new, so I can't comment on the wear yet.

Shell: The exterior has held up really nice, I've used my gloves once a week for
the past five weeks, and I play a very physical, aggresive game. I've
seen very little wear on the shell to date.

Padding: They are very protective, pretty much the same level as my Eagle PPF's.
I've taken a few double handed slashes on them, and barely felt it. I'm
extremely impressed with the extra padding on the thumb.

Flexability: Not too bad for the fingers only broken into two sections. I barely
noticed a difference between that and my PPF's. I compared them to
a pair of Pro return Easton's I've been wearing that are also two
segment fingers, and there is a big difference.

Like I said, I am still a bit of a novice, so anything you else you want me to comment on, please feel free to ask. I may ask you to clarify a few things before I can give a real response. Either way, I hope this helps, and I will be posting another review of these gloves in the future as I put more wear on them.

I have a pair of RBK Blackhawks straight from the team. They are the best gloves I've ever had. The palms have hardly worn at all and they feel great. I love the Pro Stock stuff...

One of the guys on my team picked up a pair of Reebok pro stocks from the Minnesota Wild. They look like nice gloves but they are massive. They are the same fit on the inside but the outside has so much protection that they are double the size of his previous gloves. They look like those Hulk Hand things. They are so big he is embarrassed to wear them, so keep that in mind when buying pro stock.

We were laughing and saying that maybe they were John Scott's before we was traded to the Hawks.

If you haven't already, try asking over on ModSquadHockey.com too. There seem to be a lot of people with pro stock stuff there. Or at least knowledge of where to find things.
