I currently have soft pads but I'm considering buying butterfly style pads even though I have a hybrid style. I was thinking tonight, since I come out and challenge and cut down the angles, I have a further distance to travel when the puck is passed from side to side in front of me than a goalie who stays back more. In order to be in position on time, I need to move faster than that goalie. By the time I t-push and then drop into butterfly, I may not want my pads to slide too well because I'll slide past the optimal position. Does my logic make sense? Can pads that slide too well be bad for a 5'10" hybrid goalie like me?
No announcement yet.
Can leg pads slide TOO well for hybrid goalies?
