Used to be you would see a mixture of ratty old junior pads and Jofa stuff in locker rooms, but I'm seeing a lot more of those U+ Pros along with the throwback shoulder pads.

Yeah for sure. I actually selected that model in the summer before they invaded NHL-lockerrooms, so I felt pretty wise about that decision in hindsight LOL. They got a lot of airtime during the HBO 24/7 series as well.

Nowadays, I'm seeing more U+CLs and current graphic Reebok pro pads that are quite unique, but may very well be Jofa pads re-branded, not sure.

Another update: I called Totalhockey today and since they didn't have the Fit 09s they upgraded me to the U+ 12s for just $5! It sucks that their website lists stuff they don't have, but they made up for it with that deal.

In the end I'm getting the U+ 12s for $65 when they're usually $80.

Thread Jack!

What's everybody's feelings on the Warrior Bully shoulder pads? They just went on clearance, and I've been looking at these to wear for my ice games. Good bang for buck? Awful,wretched waste of money that I should avoid?

For those who say CCM's sizing is correct I just bought another pair of CL's shoulders in a size small. I'm 6 feet, 200 lbs, I lift weights so I originally purchased a large. Mobility and ventilation was fine but the middle chest piece would move away from my body when I skated and when I sat on the bench-so much so that it was distracting. Gave it a couple of games to see if they would break in a little, nothing really to break in with these though. So went back to the store and tried on a medium, same problem. Tried on a small since it was there and it fit me. If 6 feet, 200lbs is a small then Hulk Hogan must wear an XL. I think I was a small in Farrell's too but a large in my Sherwood 9950's. Love the water resistant capabilities of the CCM CL line and it's nice to feel cold air flow through when you skate.

Tried on some Easton 55s today and they were decent enough I think. I really liked the 75s a LOT better, and the adjustable bicep part is nice, but it is hard to justify another $30 for those. Movement seemed pretty decent though.
