I like #1. The edges seem like they'd be harder to see than the others.

With the jersey, I'd say #2 would look best.

Overall though, #1 looks the best.

Here's the final choice. It's pretty much number 2 with a slight modification.

I've become a big fan of the "all-white + tiny amounts of accent colour" thing as of late, as below. Seems like a lot of goalies are going this route in recent months.

P.S. If you're going with Smiths, be sure to call and ask Pete Smith about the SP5000 slated to come out soon. It looks like the bee's knees.

I'm actually getting the SP5000, but I like the SP2000 graphics better. So, I'm getting the 2000 graphics on the 5000 pads. I have already been talking to Pete about it and it is an option.

I think the 2nd one down is the best, followed by number 1. I like white more than black.
