I`m looking for new pants now that I hope I can get them a bit cheaper. I`m thinking about ccm 10 or 08 or RBK 9K.
played one time with the ccm 10 and they were GREAT but the most teammates are big fans of the RBK pants
which one would you take and why?!
and today I saw Reebok HP 9K Girdle + Coverpant for 100 Euros, looks like a good deal but honestly I dont know anyone with a girdle
what are the pros and cons for this stuff?
Tacklas 9000 and 5000 pro are very great, but hard to get in Europe. I got the 9K here in Germany, had CCM 10 and TPS 8 before. The 9k is totally different, snug on your legs and supposed to be tight. You have to strap them on like a girdle,it' all a little bit complicated...in pants you just jump in. The 9k isn't the lightest either and the shell is made out of the same material as the Edge jerseys compared to the thick nylon on my pants...so durability may be an issue.The shell is padded on the waist, so it's hard to get another shell, except prostock..or you dispense with some padding. Also the shell hangs on tree quite flimsy velcro loops...so be careful. I let mine a little bit wider on the legs, don't separate the shell and step in like into pants, but there is some trouble with the shins...the shell is rally snug...they changed the shell now for the new season, no padding an zippers for length...I wore mine at home and liked them, couldn't play with them, cause I'm injured...
