I was hoping for some help answering a few questions for an aspiring roller hockey goalie.
First, I've been to a few different websites and can not find a universal leg pad sizing chart. They all have their own method for figuring out your pad size, so I've calculated I'm anywhere from a 30" to a 34". Is there a concensus method someone knows of for getting a correct measurement?
Second, How much difference is there between ice hockey pads and roller pads? Is there a prefered leg pad for roller hockey? I played last night with ice hockey pads and found them to be bulky and heavy.
Third, Is there any equipment that I should buy new versus used, or does it not matter? (of course I wouldn't buy a used jock)
Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
