The performance of the pocket is fantastic and just as consistent as a mesh pocket, with a little less hold. That is really too much as a factor if you have decent stick skills, but worth noting. I really love the feel of the leather pocket, as I’ve always used a shifty pocket. I also had great success shooting with this pocket. As a goalie coach, 75% of what I do is shoot, so it's really important to be able to shoot accurately and consistently. I’ve had issues with traditionals in the past, with them not being able to shoot consistently at high speeds. (That could have been any number of things; the way I strung the pocket, not enough shooting strings, not taking the time to break-in a pocket, etc.) The 3.0 Pita Pocket has shown me that a traditional can really shoot.
I haven’t been fully converted (yet) to a traditional guy, but this stick isn’t going to just sit on my wall this season. Its definitely going to be making appearances at practices and maybe a game or two in the summer. (If anyone knows of any league/pick-up games in CT in need of a goalie / extra middie I’m always looking for places to play during the year.)
This is really an awesome product for anyone who currently uses a traditional product, or wants to see what all the hype is about.
