Comments:Let me start of my saying I am new to organized hockey and have been wearing equipment only for 4 or 5
moths. I was previously using the Baur X20 shoulder pads which were the 2nd to cheapest pads at the local ice rink so I went with
them. They were decent, but I released, even in a no-hit league, that I wanted more protection than what the X20 pads offered.
The 1st thing I noticed with the EQ30‚s was the solidness of the system. The firmness around the shoulders, the shoulder pad cups
(?), the spine pads in the front and back, etc, were all more solid and much more well-built than the X20‚s They are definitely built
for more abuse than the X20‚s. They are also very light. Even though they seemed a little more bulky than the X20‚s I feel more
mobile. My arm movement is much better. One thing that threw me a little was the way the shoulder cups (?) sat on my shoulders.
They were sitting a little further out on my shoulders than the X20‚s, but I quickly realized that‚s how the EQ30‚s sat and after a few
minutes of playing I really enjoyed how the EQ30‚s fit me.
Overall these are a big step up from the X20‚s. The shoulders and arms have better movement, even though I have much more
protection and the pads are very light. I did seem to sweat a little more, but the pads did not seem anymore hot. I would highly
suggest this purchase for the price point.
