s11 is pretty comparable with the s17 from last season. but, they both suck. dont know about tps gloves b/c we didn't have those but the eastons overall were crappy. you're better of with a bonafide or bully warrior glove. should be around $100. awesome gloves for that price.

Easton's fit tighter, TPS fit looser. My cheap Easton 500's from a few years ago held up pretty decent, although my new TPS R8 Pro's are wearing down pretty fast.

I'm thinking about some One75's as I like a tighter fit.

very little difference between the s11 and s17. they're the "slim" fit and are not too bad. the r8 is a wider fit like the eagle gloves. they're super light but feel like they can take a lot of abuse. can't really go wrong with either. just grab a stick and roll it in your palms with the gloves on and see what feels best.

Jarick, check out the One70's. I love mine. You might be able to find them cheap with the new line being out.

I didn't like the fit and feel of the One70's, and they looked really odd. The One75's look like a more normal glove and they seem to be softer and have just a bit more room in the fingers (which I like). Plus they seem to have a bit more cuff protection. I'll have to check them all out again.

R8s are excellent and brake in fast. The problem is they brake down fast as well.

Just tried on a bunch of gloves...

Warrior Bully - very, very comfortable, tighter fitting for a 4-roll style glove, looks good too, and very well priced. Palm felt good. Was very surprised, these might be a contender for my next glove.

Graf gloves (didn't see the model) - also very comfortable, hybrid of 4-roll and modern glove, very surprised by these too, although I know nothing about them.

Bauer One75 - comfortable, felt broken in, but the gloves don't feel quite as solid as the One95's, especially for the money. Cuff felt a little too limiting. Looks a little odd.

Bauer One95 - more comfortable and felt 100% broken in, seemed very protective, adjustable cuff was nice, expensive though and looks a little odd.

Easton S17 - felt good but too long in the palm, which made the cuff way too restrictive. S11 was similar but lighter weight.

Eagle PPFi - probably the most comfortable and softest palm ever, fit was a little boxy (pressure at the back of the palm but a little room on either side of the hand), good cuff movement, very expensive.

Warrior Franchise - seems a little big and boxy, like the Eagle but looser fitting, didn't really feel worth the money.

Bauer 4-Roll - way too big for the size, but the next size down was too short. Good for the money if they fit.

Bauer XXV - good modern fitting glove, good cuff movement, looks a little odd, but an okay value.

TPS R8 - very comfortable and feels almost broken in, too big and roomy, especially after they break in, seem to break down quickly.

I can't remember which glove it was but one of them seemed to limit the thumb movement way too much, might have been the Bully or the One75, it was one of the gloves I was considering buying.
