    I grew up playing Ice Hockey, started skating when I was about 4 and got into hockey at Age 5, I played until I was 19 competivly, and then played in some Adult Leagues here and there till I joined the AF.

    When I got to Pope the Rink here was shut down for renovations and re-opened right before i got deployed, So basicly for the last 3-4 years I have only skated maybe a dozen times.

    I am trying to get back into it but I need to replace some of my gear.

    Shoulder, Shin, Elbow Pads at the least.

    Pants, Helmet and Gloves are good, Skates def need to be sharpened.

    I guess what im trying to get at is I know there is a few guys on here that play.. Cough, The Canadians... eh, Cough..

    Where Can I find some gear at a good price online?.. I am havig a hard timea t work as some of the sites are blocked on the work computer.

    But I have found some stuff I would like just don't know if it is available cheaper anywhere else.

    What I have found


    [​IMG]
    SHER-WOOD 5030 SHOULDER PAD SR - LARGE - $29.99


    [​IMG] EASTON SYNERGY ST6 SHIN GUARDS - SENIOR - 16" $37.99
    [​IMG] SHER-WOOD 5030 ELBOW PADS - SENIOR - LARGE -$19.99


    the leagues around here and most leagues I have seen for "Adults" are non contact so im not looking for any Big pads.. just something inbetween the puck and my "6pack"... lol..

    I would look for closeouts,or last years stock,you can save big bucks buying discontinued stuff.Often it is just a slight change in color or graphic,but it's cosidered leftover once the new model line comes out.I'm a big Nike/Bauer fan and there are also places that will buy pro demos and sell them at huge savings.
