What do you guys recommend for gloves? I'm not Burrows here, so I can't afford a whole lot, but I was looking at some CCM U+ 08s, since those are around what I want to spend.

Depends on how you like gloves to fit. I love Bauer vapors and easton eq series both different fits. I use bauer vapor x:30 gloves They have lasted me awhile. But Those r like 60 I believe right now. I'd say try out different fits of gloves and what feels nice to you.

Yeah generally four roll type gloves are looses fit and are the traditional fit. Then you have more contoured fit to your hand.

I hate quoting Bauer again but that's all I know a lot of lol. The Bauer four rolls are the most traditional fitting gloves. The supreme line is the most contoured fit to your hands, and the vapor is like a mid point between the two.

I have used Vapors and Easton EQs and I also love them both and yes, they do feel kinda different but it really doesn't feel any different handling the stick.

I think they were $65 or something like that online. I'll have to see how much they are at the B&M shop here.

Yeah, I went with 4.0s as well. My friend who works at the store I went to said they're great skates to start out with, because they won't break down super quick. Right now, all I need are a helmet, gloves and I'll probably get some shin pads and then I'll start going to this "Hockey Skills" thing the local rink has. Basically just a bunch of drills, then they do 3v3 for a while.

I think my buddy is trying to make a fast buck on me. I wish I could talk to a sales rep that really knew their stuff.

Yeah, he works at a nice hockey store. Used to get all my equipment there when I used to play. I told him i'm on a tight budget and I'm going to get the 4.0's. He tells me to not even bother if I'm not gonna buy the 5.0's. Sounds like a load of ****. I plan on buying everything used and he is telling me to get all new stuff. I'm only gonna be a rec player and I'm not shooting for a spot in the AHL.

i say go for the 4.0's unless you want to spend 130 more, which you can spend on a good helmet and still have some of that 130 available for a stick.

plus the 4.0 are meant for more intermediate/rec play
