It's a new gear year

So I've been buying new gear this year. Some of my stuff is 10+ years old so it's gotta go. So far I've gone with Reebok 17K skates, CCM U+12 pants and an Easton E700 lid. I must say I'm very impressed with all the gear so far. Anybody have an opinion on U+ 12 shoulders and shins. Seems to be very good gear just looking for some user opinions.

I also recently upgraded my gear after coming back following a 12 year hiatus. Two of my best finds are, undoubtedly, my u+12 shins/shoulders. And I absolutely LOVE the Easton e600/700 helmets. I went with the 600.

My Reebok 8k elbows are finally dead and I got tired of sewing them back together, so I just picked up some Reebok 20ks. They feel about the same as my old ones so this pleases me.

Replaced my 13" CCM Fit 07 children's shin guards for some 14" Reebok 20k. I haven't played in them yet, but they feel much beefier. I moved up a level where people can shoot harder and I have a bad knee, so I went all out on these.

I used to have the U+12 shoulders. They are perfect for rec league and are super light you forget you're wearing them. I sold them to a friend though and upgraded to the RBZ 150. I just wanted something a little more substantial.

You figure it's worth the upgrade to the RBZ?

Well I've gone with U+12 pants, Pads and shoulders. Gotta say I'm really impressed for the price I paid. Lightweight, good protection, good fit. It looks great and performs well. I wouldn't say it's for a seriously competitive player but 40+ rec league it performs very well.

So I returned my Reeboks and ended up with Supreme One.8's. I couldn't get heel lock with the reebok at all. Haven't skated with the bauer a yet so I'll update as I do. Fit is amazing though.
