  • Are Smith and Vortek Pro Level?

    I am now considering ordering from one of these companies.
    I know everyone on the board uses their equipment.
    I am interested in leg pads and was wondering if it was pro level.
    Are slap shots going to break my legs in Smith or Vortek?

    Yes they are pro level pads and gloves from both companies.

        Last time I checked Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins, uses Smith. Seems that would make the gear pro quality.

          But you have 0 worries with Smith...

              Yes. There are junior players in Vortek, and there's a BB member that I'm pretty sure faces shots from AHL players in his 'teks.

                In the early days of Vortek (before their reorganization), several minor pro goalies wore the brand.

                        Wow, you're competing with Duncin' Mark for the "I'm unable to use a spell checker" award.

                        Pete Smith has designed pads for NHL players for years (the Velo was his design). You can't beat the price and quality you'll get from Pete.

                            They both are, but I would go with the Vortek!

                              Vortek pads are what kind of style?
                              Butterfly I assume...
                              Are they stabilized in the butterfly- good knee support?
