Nexus 1000 Elbow Pad

Size Large

My Height – 6’0” My Weight – 235lb

Used these elbow pads for approx. 6 months. 2x Ice 1x Roller per week

Previous elbow pads were Sherwood Vintage 5030

Fit – I am extremely picky on my elbow pads and found these elbow pads were the only ones that I felt fit snug enough and allowed for the mobility I was looking for. The 3 strap system allows me to get the pad comfortable without movement. The elbows also sit in the pad without pressure points which was one of the reasons I needed to switch from the Sherwoods. Only concern is the Medium was too small, but in the large I need to wrap the strap to the end of the velco, so if these stretch out, I may have to modify. 9/10

Protection – The pads offer excellent protection. I have taken some heavy collisions and did not feel any contact with the boards or the ice. Taken some whacks in front of the net and felt the elbow pads shielded the hits pretty well. 10/10

Weight – These were on par with the weight of the other pads, and with better comfort for me. 10/10

Durability – Elbow pads have held up great playing 2-3 times per week for about 6 months. No cuts or tears. Although I never stored them in my bag outside of to and from the rink, within a month the material started to turn yellowish. Seems to be the most noticeable on the pad where it would rub against the jersey in games. 9/10

Conclusion – After trying on elbow pads for 2 years, I decided on these pads because I really liked the fit and protection. After trying other new pairs in the past and always going back to my old Sherwoods, I was hesitant to get these. I am very happy that I decided to pick them up. After 6 months, I would make this purchase again every time. 9/10
