    I'm having an arguement with a friend and we'd like it to be resolved.

    Is Jofa pronounced as:
    Joe-fa
    or
    Yo-fa

    I warned you about it being stupid! haha

    This is actually a good question, I've always said "Joe-fa", but I'm sure the Europeans would disagree:p:

    I'd like to take this time and place to give a shout out to Koho, Heaton, Cooper, Jofa, Titan, Canadian and any other independant manufactures that may have become extinct thanks to market consolidation.

    I've said "Joe-Fa" since I was young but that's probably incorrect.

    I kinda switch between the two, my friend swears by "yo-fa." I think that either way is ok... Come to think of it since I'm hispanic; maybe I should say "ho-fa" :P

    It's Joe-fa. TBLfan - didn't know you were Hispanic. Did you know that I lived in the Dominican Republic for 7 years and speak fluent Spanish? Ha!

    Koho street hockey gear was my youth!! They were one of the first companies that came out with quality protective gear available in my area. It freed us from the shackles of the heavy bulk of Mylec!
