Bauer 5100 helmet w/ Itech half shield.
Bauer Vapor X30 shoulder, planning to upgrade shortly to the Nexus 600
Bauer Nexus 1000 elbow
Cooper Super Pro gloves, planning on replacing when I learn new uniform colours.
Bauer Nexus 600 pants
Bauer Nexus 600 shin, thinking about upgrading to the 1000 though because the elbows are so good.
Bauer Supreme 3000 skates, new this year, 2nd hand, but as new. Prob only worn a couple of times previously.
Titan TPM 3020 sticks

Have had to shell out a bit lately to replace a bunch of old Cooper stuff I hadn't used in a long, long time. Looked okay, but the plastic was brittle and just fell to bits when I dusted it off.

So much Bauer now I might have to change my name to Jack.

A few new buys in the last few months.

The new shouldies are perfect. Great protection, low profile and very light. Perfect for beer league.

Love the heavier flex on my stick. My slappers are much harder. Still getting used to loading up my writers with it.

The 4500 is so much lighter than the 9500 and oh so classic

My son is was using two RBZ Stage 2's, and snapped both of them two weeks apart. Any suggestions? He's a defencemen, 5'11, 160 lbs, and has an above average shot. Thinking about an NXG, or a APX2. Any thoughts? Need sooner rather than later, but he's got a couple pro stocks for the meantime. (AI.9's) Thanks!

Try the Nexus 1000. It's just like the NXG or the APX2, only cheaper because it's on clearance. If you can find the APX too, it could be great.

When I'm in net :

Some sort of Eddy mask, can't remember the model
RBK throat guard - took a puck to the adams apple under my dangler one time, never again
Eagle Fusion chest protector
Itech Jock
RBK Premier Pants
RBK Premier 2 leg pads/blocker/glove
Bauer Supreme skates - one model down from the pro model
Twigz goalie stick

When I skate out :

CCM v10 Helmet + Cage
Bauer Classic shoulder pads
Old Jofa elbow pads
Bauer Supreme Trevor Lewis pro return gloves
Koho Revolution pants
Ancient CCM 662 Tacks shin pads
Bauer Supreme skates - I think it's like 1.4 or something
Easton slash guards so I don't end up like my friend who got his wrist stepped on
Sherwood 9050 Stick with a Stastny pattern

Not the fanciest stuff, but it gets the job done

Not sure about the ones you mentioned, but stay away from the easton Mako. My brother is the same build, a little taller. Same kinda shot and has snapped 5 off this year. Not a stick made for hard shooters

The original Mako, Mako II or both? I have a Mako II that's holding up fairly well, but I haven't used it a lot - probably only about a dozen beer league games.

The Warrior Covert sticks are worth a look - I have a Diablo that I really like and that evolved into the DT2 and then DT1ST. I've also demoed the Widow and Covert DT1. I liked them both, but some people had problems with the durability of the blades on the Widows and Diablo sticks. Warrior really worked to improve the blade durability for the covert sticks and now you can find the DT1 and DT2 sticks on clearance since the DT1LT and DT1ST were launched and are the latest models.

The dagger taper really provides a lot of pop - the DT1 and DT1LT sticks are true one piece sticks (as is the Widow). The DT2 and DT1ST sticks offer similar performance, but are high fused sticks that offer twist resistance for stronger players (as was the Diablo).

I've also heard/read good things about the Sherwood REKKER EK15. It's the lightest top of the line stick out there and is cheaper than the competition. I haven't used one myself, but some of the people that have and have posted on different forums have given positive feedback. They've said things like they were worried about the durability due to the weight, but they've held up and performed well.

My current gear, looking to upgrade my shoulder and shin pads for next season.

Helmet - Reebok 4k with Bauer X100 Half Visor
Shoulder Pads - Easton Synergy 700
Elbow Pads - CCM CL
Pants - Reebok JDP 5K
Shin Pads - Graf G700
Gloves - Bauer Supreme Total One Max SOR3
Skates - Bauer One70

Sticks - Easton E7 Iginla II L5.5 85 Flex
Bauer Supreme one.5 Stamkos PM9 L5 87 Flex

I've had most of this gear for a couple seasons now and am happy with all of it. Have to replace a couple items though.

Have replaced the old half shield with a HDO straight cut visor and just picked up some Vapor X30 gloves to make do mucking around while my Nexus 800's are on order.

Best thing about the new visor is that if it fogs up a little on the bench, it de-mists in seconds once you start skating. helmet and visor I just keep/carry in a pillow case and plastic bag which seems to protect it pretty well against any scratches in the gear bag.

Am playing with a pair of old Wynwell gloves which have lasted pretty well. They're a little dirty now but have been surprisingly durable. Palms still all intact.

'New' sticks too, old stock Mako M5's, 100 flex.

I'm sure scuba diving would be cheaper.

Got some new shoulder pads on the weekend. Stayed with Easton and got the Easton Stealth RS II. Haven't played yet but they fit well and have quite a bit more protection in the chest and back.
