    Question Best pads for butterfly?

    Does anyone know what a some good lightweight butterfly pads. I prefer ones that shoot the puck away instead of letting it fall in front of you.

    There is no type of pad to magically improve rebound control, but stiffer pads and less breaks will straighten the surface and help a bit, but ultimately rebound control is up to you.

    Stiffer pads like RBK, are gernerally better for rebounds going towards the corners (providing you angle them that way and not right back out to shooter)

    Softer pads like Vaughn keep the rebounds closer to the pad.

    Stretching and flexabilty ar ethe best keys to a good butterfly.
    synesthete and Bru like this.

    I would strongly suggest trying the Bauer Supreme lineup. I use the Bauer Supreme ONE60s but you can use watever ones u want (ONE60, ONE80, ONE100). They are all structured the same the only difference is the padding. I use the ONE60s and they are amazing they are very stiff so rebounds are kept to a minumum and they are very light. The only drawback i would say is that theyl take about 2 or 3 weeks to break in really good as far as butterfly sliding goes. When you first get them they won't slide far but if you are good at sliding youl have no problem at all.

    KS, What about your style makes you want pucks that shoot out from the pads? I'm curious.

    If you're a "flopper", why do you want butterfly pads? Maybe a hybrid would be better suited for you.....

    I have Bauer One80s, and most of the time, rebounds bounce far enough away for recovery time, but that can also work against you like it did to me last night - had a scramble in front of the crease, made a pad save, it bounced out about 3 feet, another shot, pad save, bounced out again, another shot, another pad save, bounced out about 5 feet, another shot, over the pad and glove and into the net. Bouncy pads only work well if you can make sure the puck goes out of the "danger zone".

    My business is stopping pucks and business is.........going bankrupt.
