Pure Hockey Says: This is a very interesting shoulder pad. First off, one doesn`t immediately think of Sher-Wood when you think about shoulder pads, but you know what? Take a look at postgame interviews in the NHL and college game and you`ll find plenty of players wearing Sher-Wood shoulders. The 5030`s contain lightweight material foam for greater mobility and movement and a classic front and back LACED opening. That`s right, baby - old school laces! The laces provide you with nice flexibility in sizing and provide an optimal fit and ease of putting on and removal. Surprisingly good set of pads here.
