Eagle Gloves (fit question)

Got a question about Eagle gloves fit in general.

I prefer a tight fit around my fingers, and while I'm a fully grown adult, my fingers are short and stubby.

A 12' Bauer Vapor X:60 fits me extremely well, a little bit on the tight side but I don't mind it.

I tried a 13' Bauer 4-roll before, and it's a little bit too loose for me and would fall straight off my hands at times.

I'm really intrigued by Eagle gloves and would like to buy a pair, but it's impossible for me to get my hands on a pair in Taiwan, so trying them on is out of the question.

What I heard is that Eagles have shorter fingers (perfect for me).

I'd like to know what the equivalent fit to a 12' Vapor would be for a pair of PPF or Talons. I also saw a PPFi 13' and a pair of junior 13' online. If anyone would like to elaborate, I'd really appreciate it.

Talons (at least the original) had longer fingers. Don't know about the rest of the line, though that family is a slightly tighter fit than your Vapors. Interesting option in the 13" Junior, any other details?

Also, I assume that you're going to stick with Vapor if you don't get a clear answer here? The new Vapor line, I find, has longer fingers than previous lines. I normally need 14" is the vast majority of gloves but can comfortably fit into 13" in the new Vapors.

That's the link to the intermediate gloves that went under the junior section on HM.

I'm currently using a pair of Winnwell Pro Stock 12' glove. They fit well.

I also have a pair of 12' X:60 sitting around, but I'd like to keep that around without using because it's actually a Team Canada WJC return I bought on eBay for $60. Would prefer not using it unless I absolutely have to. Looks really nice on my shelf :p

With my Winnwell starting to wear out, I'm looking at a new pair of gloves. I've always wanted a pair of Eagles, but they were hard to find even back in Vancouver...

Thought I'd ask around to see if someone can compare the fit across brands.

I also sent Eagle an e-mail, I'll share my findings here when they decide to reply.
