I need new goalie equipment, what should I get?

I play goalie at a AA Bantam Silver level, and I'm looking for some good new pads to help me backstop my team to VICTORY!

In all seriousness, I've been playing with a pair of old Koho pads and gloves from the early nineties. Not sure 18 or 19, but they are OLD. My game is all butterfly, and pads from 113 years ago don't really hold up that well in constantly going down and getting up. What are some nice, durable pads that can stand up to 1-3 games/practices per week? Looking for something new and innovative. Thanks! BBH.

So many pads... so many styles... so really no one can answer this based on the info provided. Stiff pad? flex pad? busy channel? open channel? are the easiest questions to eliminate in the process. For what it's worth though I would consider the Warrior Rituals to be the most "innovative" pad on the market right now as far as that fact on it's own is concerned.

I find that simmons gear is better then most pro equipment. Heard many problems with reebok pads and other big name brands. My simmons though have been through alot and haven't failed me yet.

you could check out the goaliestore.com bulletin board for reviews.

look for someone that has had 'newer' style pads for several years and how they have stood up. there are many of the 'newer' pads that seem to be made more for lightness and sacrifice durability.
