Default 2012 Easton Synergy EQ PRO vs 2012 Bauer 4-roll

I currently have an old pai of bauer 4-rolls that have finally had to be put down. Being someone that does not regularly by equipment I am looking for something that has great performance with lots of durability and also having that old school 4-roll feel. Recently I have had other equipment breakdown and have noticed that the new easton stuff I have gotten (sticks, and e700 helmet) I am really pleased with.

Anyway I have narrowed it down to these two. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Both of those gloves are good gloves, they just fit differently. The EQ Pro fits a bit tighter than the Bauer 4-Roll Pro's. The are a bit narrower. I myself use the Bauer 4-Roll Pro's and love them. I have had them for 2 years and they are still holding up well with 2-3 times of use a week. So I would just try them both on and go with the one that you like the best.

Hey thanks for responding to so many of my posts charan. It's crazy how much equipment has changed over the years. I'm not like a lot of these guys that change there stuff up frequently. Just recently bought my first helmet since I was 16 which was 11 years ago lol.

I did try both of them on and I really liked the easton eq gloves. Any idea on how it holds up durability wise?

It is pretty crazy how equipment has changed over the years. So many new technologies being brought into hockey equipment. I haven't heard of any issues with durability on those gloves. And when i grabbed them they seemed really durable.

Thats not good. Thanks for the insight. I have used Bauer gloves forever so i don't know personally and i haven't heard of any durability issues before this so its good to know. Do you use a grip stick or put tape or wax on your shaft? If so that does tear gloves up quicker.

That might be why. Are you left or right handed?

Yea it's supposed to be but unfortunately it will still wear out palms. Thats why i dont use any tape on the handle. I just make a small doughnut at the top so my hand doesnt slip off. But that is good to know about the EQ palms.
