East Coast Dyes, to me, created the best goalie mesh ever to come to the market when the goalie mesh first came out. I have stood by them for the past 4 years of my career as a goalie and I have been satisfied ever since...UNTIL NOW. East Coast dyes has made the (Questionable) decision to change their mesh. The type of base mesh as well as the waxing process has been changed. Now, their newer player mesh is much superior to their old mesh, but the NEW goalie mesh has drastically dropped in quality. The newer mesh is made of a thinner, lesser quality material that I believe, is no longer is suitable for goalies. It is much softer out of the package, resembling soft mesh that feels tacky. It is literally soft mesh. That feels waxed. I did a drop test with a 2.5 ball deep pocket and the ball collapsed all of it and bounced of the table.Pros:
East Coast dyes, I think, has let me and tons of other goalies down. Please ECD, bring back the old stuff.
Don't fix what ain't broke
Nothing. Terrible quality. Tons of flaking. Too soft.Cons:
ECD has really let its goalies down.
The quality of the mesh.
