Hey, I'm in the market for a new c/a. I am still using my Vaughn 1400 from the late '90s and while it's in pristene condition (appearance-wise), I've been getting some stingers lately which leads me to the obvious conclusion that the padding's beginning to break down (or that composite sticks should be outlawed!!! ).
Anyway, here's my dilemma: because I play ice and roller and I like to use all the same equipment for both, I'm looking for a senior-level c/a that will suffice for house league roller and C-level ice.
Real quick, here's what I already know I DON'T want:
- something big and bulky
- anything over $200 (assuming the c/a's being bought new)
Here's what I DO want:
- good mobility
- good shoulder protection
Actually, I've been eyeing up the Itech CPElite Sr. model, but I don't know much about it.
Anyway- fire away guys...
