    Another thing about Hockey Giant is they had a wide selection...of one brand. I'll tell you, if you wanted Eagle gloves, they had every model in every color possible, but if you wanted Eastons, CCMs or RBK, you're out of luck.

When I bought them they were a step down from the top of the line (being the M-1) and paid 66 plus shipping

    your m2's lasted 4 years??? wow...mine fell apart within 4 weeks of beer league games haha.

    higher end gloves don't always have better protection, but usually have better quality and materials. it'll be comfy and light. also some of the higher end gloves have thinner palms for better feel. that might not = longer lasting palms. if you want protective, go with pro stocks. they usually have thicker padding and a protective thumb.

    Drove down to Discount Hockey this morning, better drive than I expected; 45 minutes to get from Newhall(Magic Mountain) to Agoura Hills from the 405->101. The place is awfully 'rag tag', tons of boxes with gear stacked in the center, a rack of sticks and gear on the wall. If they could find some storage for the boxes, the place would be really really nice. I wound up getting there at 9:15, 45 minutes before they opened, but the guy there let me in and helped me out. The skate selection was kind of slim, compared to Hockey Monkey and Hawk, but they had a compression machine for baking then compression to help mold the boot. I have to say though, the guy working there 'Rick' was f'in rad, nice guy. Kind of seems like a place where it's better to order online because some gear they don't stock in store, but can distribute online. Nice place.
