New Gloves

I need some help deciding what kind of gloves to get since my last pair are old and torn up.
I want something lightweight, durable, comfortable, and with great range of motion. Any input on these....

If you've got the money get a good pair of Eagles, I switched to Eagles a few years ago and it just trumps anything I've ever owned.

I found what appear to be pretty good deals on the ones I listed above which is why I listed them. Thanks though

Mostly I am looking for the best glove I can buy for around $80

I use Warrior MacDaddys and they are the most comfortable gloves I have ever worn. I can really get a good feel for my stick when I wear them.

Warrior Bully or Bonafide. The AK27 should be a little bit more but its great as well. Warrior has become the leader in gloves imo.

If you can find an older pair of Itech leather series..they're pretty great. They'd be about 10 years old now. We used to have a pair at our shop and i was going to get them if i needed new gloves. great things that were being sold for about 30 bucks.

From your list the 9k's would be my choice, although the cuff is a bit restrictive. Vapor XXX's, Bauer 4-Rolls, or TPS R8 Pro's would also be a good choice.

these are not on your list but i love them http://www.sandehockey.com/. there is some on ebay new for super cheep.
the grafs are nice as well, along with the tps r8 lites. for me it came down to price and i got the sandes for 50 bucks.
hockeyworlds always got some deals.
i never had eastons but everyone i know that has higher end eastons likes them.
if you haven't tried on any of the ones you mentioned then you should head to your LHS and try some on. or if you don't live near a good shop try some of your teammates gloves on.
PS if you can find a deal eagles are very nice.

if you haven't bought anything yet, I can vouch for the Mission 120's. Ive had them for over 15 months, playing two winters worth of outdoor hockey, and they're still in pretty good shape. They feel great and if you like gloves with that extra "cuff protection" as I do, these are a good buy

I stand by TPS, any glove down to the R4.

Montreal also makes a GREAT glove, if you can find them.

I own a pair of Easton Stealth gloves and like them ... they took a while to break in but when they did they were/are great. They are certainly durable I can tell you that much at least.
