what size are you? and where are you at? my gf has some equipment that she used a couple of times and can't use anymore since she's in school and forbidden to play.
Spent the past couple nights driving out to the rinks and such around here and talking to people at the pro shops and trying stuff on. I ended up going with:
Supreme 50 skates/shoulders/elbows/shins/gloves
RBK 4K helmet w/ Oakley VR910 visor (required for the league)
CCM 492 Tacks pants/sticks
Plus all the rest I need (tape, socks, mouthguard, etc.) and it came out to $730. I was thinking about 700 total, so the price was right for me.
guys i am new in town and wanted to know where is the best place to look at goalie equipment? i am in the LA area (Torrance). i am willing to drive as i am fine with the freeways. also where to find places to repair equipment.
Ice Hawk in Santa Ana is the best place for goalie gear:

FYI - I was in hockeygiant today buying some inline skates. got a 10% discount off the total for being a firefighter so I just wanted to give a heads up to any other firefighters. Maybe law enforcement and military might get a discount as well, it's worth asking I suppose.
