Specific Glove Recomendation (S19/EQ50)

I'm going to pick up new gloves soon and I'm really torn between the Easton S19 v2 and the Easton EQ50. Anyone have either and have opinions or pro/cons?

Additionally, I'm really intrigued by the new RS Stealth, but I'm so accustomed to the double concave shaft dimensions of the Bauer supreme line that I don't know if I'd be comfortable changing. I'm sure the opinions on the stick are overwhelmingly positive, but anyone have any specific feedback?

On the stick, yeah don't bother. Like all Easton sticks, blade goes soft after four or five skates. I never have that problem with my Bauer sticks.

I have the Easton EQ50 gloves, they are excellent. The only thing I find wrong with them is i wish I bought one size bigger to have a little bit more wrist movement.

As for the RS, don't bother. Go for a total one.

Edit: forgot to add, multiple people on my team broke off their RS in 5-6 games.

The palm on the S19 v2 has improved slightly in creasing than the original, but still not as supple as the palm on the EQ50. If you can find the EQ50 Elite, that would be even better. I personally do not care for the tapered fingers on the S19 since I find that it sometimes catches on my ring finger when moving them, but it's up to you. There's nothing exclusively special about either glove so just go with whichever you prefer.

As to the stick, it's an absolutely amazing stick for shooting. The release on it is second to none, best stick I've ever shot with and balanced amazingly well. However like cleveland and Donald mentioned, there have been durability issues with some of them but if you're just playing recreationally and not at a competitive level, that shouldn't be an issue if you haven't been hard on your sticks before.

S17 FTW for all easton gloves

I prefer the pro-stock gloves, as I am a huge fan of Clarino Nash, and most, regardless if its a totalone, rbk 9, 4roll or not... with the exception of some Eagles, most are clarino palms.

I prefer 4 rolls, but if I were to choose something that was somewhat tapered, the X60 or the XXXX are nice

I second the comment on the EQ50'S elite series. For an extra $10. I woulda bought myself some but I needed one size bigger and they couldn't give me a time line, it's been a month and still none in. Picked up some EAGLE X95.

Best glove ever, but sadly not available anymore. I've been looking for a left over black pair in a 14" for a long time.
