Blockheads...
------ ------ ------
Why is it all the hot goalie gear companies are making their pads all blocky? I can see how it covers more space, but it just seem to be to inhibiting. I'm looking for a pad that isn't so wide around the toe, to make skating behind and around the net a bit easier.

So far the only pad I can find that fits my liking is the Itech 8.8 X-Factors. They remind me alot of the old Heaton Pro 90 Z's which in my opinion, are the greatest pads ever made.

Anyone else share this pet peeve?

pads

acually I like the flatter pads..I have torn both my MCL's..so it easier for me to play a butterfly style and cover the 5 hole with them..also use longer pads..36'
