    Itech Vamp looks okay. Tried the set on once and it was comfortable. I wanted those until I tried on the RBK 7K. Great set of pads right there. as for sites to get them cheap, the best I've found are great skate and goalie monkey

    If your range is $500, I would honestly try and get some higher level pads used on ebay. Maybe you could get some used pro Koho pads in that price range. Im actually looking to sell my pads (TPS Bionics Pro-Returns) to get Itech 11.8's, so im not sure if you're interested :)

    Maybe try the Itech 7.8 X-factors, they seem to be pretty good quality for a non-pro pad, under $500, and are on goaliemonkey.com. That would be my #1 choice of a non-pro pad. You mentioned the RBK's, and Ive never seen them up close, from what I hear the 7K is also a pretty decent non-pro pad. So my suggestion is the Itech 7.8 X-factors or the RBK's for SR pads, or try to find some used pro pads on e-bay.

    One thing I forgot to mention, goalie pads aren't necessarily something that you can read a review for. Obviously you CAN, but you're much better off going out and trying on thr pads yourself. Everyone plays differently and everyone has their own likes/dislikes for pads. Go out and try some of the pads on that we've recommended, as well as whatever caught your eye. Make your decision based on that

    Nearest place to me that has any pads is about 45 minutes away. But to me that's worth it :D

    well there's Ocean Hockey south of me, the pro shop at the Ice House to the north... Off the top of my head can't think of anything else with a good pad selection.

    With some places I think you can order pads, try them on, and if you dont like hem you can send them back and get your money back.
