    Default Bauer Vapor X 7.0 Senior Hockey Gloves

    Looking for opinions on these gloves. I need new ones and have been looking online. I've kinda settled on these, but was wondering if any of you guys/girls have any experience with them. Any opinion on these or any others you highly recommend would be great. Thanks.

    I think they are the same leather palms as the 7.0. How is the feel and wear?

    I've been using Vapor X:60s for the last couple of years and I love them. The Vapor glove line is excellent.

    I've had them 5 months and I play 3 times a week, they still feel brand new. The only thing I do is I wrap my stick with regular tape, then put baby powder on the tape, then I put a layer of grip on it and re powder the tape and out new grip about every 10th skate.

    Four Rolls tend to be wider looser fit, Vapor tend to be narrower snugger fit more like a LAX glove. To each his own for fit and comfort....

    ^ True that. Everyone's hand is different, and everyone plays at different intervals.

    I have some older Vapors and they have held up well, my shaft hands palm is in great shape, and my top hand palm is getting worn, but only one small hole in the top part of the thumb.

    Exactly why I want some game play experience. I can go try on what I want at the store, find what's best in there. But, when I head out on the ice I don't want to feel handcuffed or have trouble feeling and gripping my stick.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I like a snugger fit. In my experience all gloves tend to stretch out after they break in. I too use powder on on my handle every game, right now I've had a pair of WinnWell Pro Stocks for about a year and palms are almost like new....

    They are snug but I could go even snugger.

    Don't know how much difference there is between the 7.0 and the Pro, but I have the Pro version of the Vapors and the 4-Rolls both are amazing gloves. Same quality, different fit. If you don't mind the traditional(looser) fit of the 4-roll, I'd go with the link Diddy posted, because it's a great price for that glove.
