Goalie, need help

I'm getting new pads this summer, I'm a hybrid goalie, wondering what pads would be better suited for my style, I rely on really pounding pucks into the corners, would The Reebok Premier3 9k be better suited, or the Revoke 9000's?? Please help if you can

The only difference is the 9000s have a top double break and the 9Ks don't. (Unless you get the 9K Turco break)


So basically no difference, just the graphic.


Also times will have changed once Summer rolls around. The P4s will be out which will drive down prices on lesser models.

The Premier 3 and Revoke 9000 are just about the same pad. The only key difference is the double outer roll breaks on Revoke. These pads are strictly a butterfly pad. If you're looking for a Hybrid pad, I would seriously consider the Rebook Larceny L9, the Vaughn 7450s, or the Koho 586s. The Koho 586 is basically a Revoke 9000 with a softer boot flex and knee rolls so it is more suited as a butterfly pad than the P3 9K or Revoke 9000. All three of these can be had for under $700.

Thanks guys, I've heard good things about the Larceny's, I'll have to try them out as well.
