your pads look very small. Are they new? (to be "under" NHL rules)

All my pads are custom colored colored and also custom fitted made by a small company up in Canada called Litespeed, but anyways:

36 inch pads
Matching Litespeed blocker and catcher
Bauer skates(need sharpened badly, I almost killed myself in practice tonight)
Itech helmet
Vaughn chest protector(I love it, I got it for 75% off!)
CCM stick, actually same one pictured above, I like that one alot, but next one is a Reebok one, they're very light.

Nah, those are at least a couple years old. My new Reeboks are just absurd though.

I think I started with 29", went to 30", then 32", then 34", and now I'm at 36". And I've remained the same height through that time

34" Heaton 10 SR pads Black/White (bought these almost two years ago, looking to upgrade eventually as I don't find 34" is long enough for me as I'm 6'2)
Vaughn T1000 glove (in need of a serious upgrade here...looking at a Vaughn Velocity glove)
Vaughn Velocity blocker
Brian's pants (not sure of the model)
Brian's chest protector (again, not sure of the model)
Itech mask (Red Dog paint job)
Bauer Supreme 1000 goalie skates

I've seen those Velo gloves and they do look nice. They look really good fro 'blocking' with that little strip that goes from the pocket to the big pad at the end.(horrible description I know)

Hehe..my equipment is so sh!thouse I'm laughing as I type.

32" Ferland Victory pads ca. 1994
Some Vic body armour I bought 4 years ago
Louisville Bionic Trapper
Brian's Beast Blocker (my gloves are my only decent equipment)
Simmons Mask (the one that looks like the I-Tech)
D&R pants ca. 1995
CCM 'Brodeur' stick (I like a long paddle)

I'm just hoping all my old stuff will hang on until I'm finished my work here in the UK, so I can start fresh when I come back to Canada.

Pads:Litespeed LSP2's 32 with a decent stock thigh rise
Glove: Smith (Same as Velocity one I believe, no cheater bar)
Blocker: Smith
C/A: Vaughn Velocity
Stick: Itech 8.8 Dafoe(bought 4 for $164 cdn total after shipping on ebay)
Mask: Simmons Matrix pro
Pants: Itech 4.8

After switching pads and gloves a few times I'm now very happy with the gear I have and how it fits to my game. May buy a flat faced pant(Matrix or 11.8) to start the season and see what I think, though I like the feel of the pants I have they are falling apart on me.

You may well be better suited to the Epic trapper than the Velocity if you're comfortable with the break on a T1000. The Velo has a decidedly unusual break, being in the palm as opposed to a traditional break out by the fingers. As such, it's an excellent blocking glove but is surpassed by the Epic, and if you can still find it, the 6000, when it comes to catching.

It's been a while since I've put my equipment on...

TPS Bionic pads (32"), blocker, and catcher-- all custom done (the pads were a 2002 purchase, gloves more recent since my little kid hands don't work with adult gloves)
don't remember the chest protector
stick depends on if I'm playing mens/womens hockey
skates- my old Bauers that I had in HS. They're too comfy to get rid of.

hah, I thought i was the only person with Litespeed pads. How you like yours, personally, these are the best pads I've used and I've been through my fair share.(Itech, Koho, Missions(used for inline), and now the Litespeed's, and these things are amazing.

Love them, bought them used(less than a month) of E-bay for $350 us on a whim and the playability and feel is the best I've tried, though I suspect other barand of the new thin high flex sub five Lbs pads would impress me equally, but with custom built litespeeds going for $780 Cdn I think they are a steal so they'd still get my business if I was buying new right now. Mine are actually the exact same colours(yellow and white honeycomb) as the ones on the litespeed web site, for all I know they may be those exact pads.

all my stuff is black/white itech stuff (except chest protector & skates - bauer), beyond that, i have no idea about models & numbers and all that junk. frankly i don't care, it stops pucks. i think some of it says "Profile" on it, if that makes sense. it's about 5-6 years old, so maybe a more knowledgable person can figure it out and make me look like a fool .

I had a set of Brian's Beast pads with Brian's glove and blocker, that were from a few years ago, but I really wore them out. I'm looking for some new pads now, actually. I'll probably get something used off ebay...

I'm thinking about the Koho 490 SR's, as they can be had pretty cheap when they're used. How do you like em Hedberg?

They would wear out quickly if you used them more than 2 or 3 times a week and the thigh boards are a bit big, but other than that, I really like them.
