these will be fairly heavy, but that may not be the biggest concern for you, now for road hockey i think these would be great, they seem to have a solid shape and are more than enough protection. so aside from a good leg workout these will do a great job

well a more modern set of pads would be lighter, but this should not be a concern, it wont make a big difference. these are very suitable for what you will be using them for and to get all of that equipment at that price is fairly reasonable

I'd go with the cheaper of the two, as their both good pads.

The THT gear for a roller puck is going to HURT. The Chest/Arm is VERY inadequate. The THT pads will be shreded very quickly if you get onto asphalt or concrete if they dont maintain the paint. While franklin claims this leg pad to be for ice hockey, I sure wouldnt take any ice puck in them. The mask would be OK. I have been a heaton wearing goalie for a long long time and I do not recognize the model name/number he gives in his added notes. If its a JR model you may have a stinger issue with adults using a roller puck.

The very least for a CA would be a TOur GTL.

better yet....

The TPS X-hale will stick to the rink surface significantly. IF you look at the inside of the pad you see its full jenpro(syn leather). It has very little slide off ice. You would either want to make and lace on slide plates for this inside edge area or find a pad that has ballistic or defender nylon rather than a syn leather.

As for selecting you pad length for fit, measuring your inseam(groin to floor with no shoes on) use that as the MIN pad size. Add 2-3 inches to that as an absolute max. For example, if 32 inch inseam, pads that will generally fit a MALE goalie will be between a 32 and 34. IF you desire a pad length longer than that select 34 +2 which would be the designation for having added lenth in the thigh rise area. Just going to a 36" pad would put your knee too low in stock pad knee lock or craddle.

nice pad for sport court or well maintained painted surfaces. Wear is still a possibility. You can protect your gloves by putting white tape over the catch bindingsaround the edge of the pocket and on the UNDERSIDE lead edge of your blocker(wear/contact area during paddle down and such)

HEll, you can get brand new tour Evo pads for less

http://www.streethockeyking.com/segolegpa.html

The Franklin SX pro would be an outstanding pad for rec roller street and such. The design is much like the old COMP SHO 4250's they put out for street back around 1995-ish. The only thing missing is the replaceable slide buttons. The drawback is that they still have not included any landing gear. Butterfly would require seperate knee protectors.

The Tour EVO and the STX would work just fine. Abviously the EVO is the better model with hte closed toe design but the STX has the PVC protection on the skate gussets wear area.

I wouldnt say better but more suited for what your going to be doing. The tour EVO is a good started pad that will provide a good baseline to start with should you decide to upgrade later to a far superior Miller or other higher end Roller Pad.
