I tried the v10 in store and it felt more like a bicycle helmet. Very hard and felt similar to the s19. I like the v08 better as it contours to my head more and its more comfy. I still get lots of sweat running down my face though.

Don't bother with that stick. You'd have to be Edler or Salo sized to make use of a 110 flex.

i have the '11 dolo and i love it, but i'm biased towards warrior sticks as they're all i use. it's light and pretty solid. i think if you wait for the right time they go on sale pretty well online. mine is an INT and i got it for 100 shipped from hockey monkey

Wait till you guys try a TotalOne. I loved my One95, but the Tone is way better.
Dolo's are nice, but my biggest complaint against them are how soft their blades are and wears out way too soon. Same thing with the One95's.

Or try an APX. So far (one month) I really like the APX.. Found that the blade has a softer feel than the X60 and still maintains that kick I couldn't get from the T1 or the one95.

I've had APx's, broke 2 Totalones inna week hence why I went back to One95. I've played 9 games with my Dolo, and went to stick and puck 3 times and the blade is still standing up. I know the heel is the weakest link..but normallyu all my sticks start to split there after time.

Interesting. Never broke the blades on any of my sticks.
They usually just wear out and lose all their whip or the blade flexes when I shoot.

I've only broken 5 sticks. 2 blades getting caught in the boards, 2 in the middle taking slapshots and one when I took a 2 handed chop in the stick.

Then again, my primary shot is slappers from the point.

What other pads are you considering? You get what you pay for with an off-shore pad. I had my off-shore Vaughns for about 12-15 ice times and they were already starting to fall apart.

At the price of a new set of Revoke 7000 I'd look into the used market and get something Canadian made instead. At least if they don't work out for you the resale value will still be better than something made in Asia.

Everything he said is true.. Except that I would say 90% of goalie gear is made outside if north America. My Reebok revoke pro's are made over seas and the stitching is great, and Iv used them 5-10 times any all they got are puck marks.

Just my 2 cents

I just looked up the Revoke Pros and you're totally right about them being made off-shore. I could've sworn they were Canadian-made because of the high price tag. Then again I was making a comparison to an off-shore Vaughn pad that costs several hundred dollars less.

As for the North American-made equipment, even though they're more expensive and harder to find, I still prefer to buy them. I started out cheap with a $99 special Brian's DX5 (Made in Thailand) Catcher from The Hockey Shop and I couldn't catch anything. I upgraded to a Brian's Focus and I've had fewer problems snagging pucks and I don't get as many stingers.

Ya the pro zone revokes are made in Canada. Pro spec over seas.
I'll agree Canada is better but the way things are getting almost everything is gong to be made over seas. Unless you want to spends $2000+ on new Canada made gear.

No personal experience with the Reebok Revoke 7000's, but heard many horror stories about low-end Reebok gear falling apart prematurely, from player skates to goalie pads.

The Pro Zones would be the top of the line domestic made pad in the Revoke line by Reebok, MSRP $1400. The Revoke 7000's would be at the opposite end of the spectrum, an entry level pad at around $300. You do get what you pay for.

It really does depend on your budget, style of play, and frequency of use, in deciding whether on not it's worth it for you to pay the premium for that Made in USA/Canada tag.

As far as the domestic vs off-shore debate goes, I've had good experiences with off-shore gear made by Bauer and Vaughn. So if price-point gear fits your needs and budget, don't let where it's made deter you.

AFAIK even top of the line gear will be produced overseas in the near future anyway.

If durability is a concern, I would strongly recommend getting a cheaper set of Vaughns. I might be biased, but getting second-hand pro level gear may also work out better in the long run. You can usually get used high end gear for the same price of lower model in new condition.

However, if an off shore pad fits your budget and suits your style of play just go for it.

very whippy and pretty light. i find that warrior sticks usually break in pretty fast and become REALLY flexible

I use to go through a warrior stick in 3 months of use 2 nights a week.
The stick would flex but won't snap back causing every shot to be knucklers with no power.

Hey guys thanks so much for the advice. I have one more question though. Do you guys think a 34+2 pad would be too big for me? Im about 5'10 with an ATK (angle to knee) of 17"

yes my Bauer's will probably be too big for you, unless you have long thighs. I have the same atk as you but the 2" thigh rise was a bit much. If you pay drop in ever let me know I'll come play as the other goalie and you can try the rx9's out
