Who’s your money on Mercian or OBO think he’s used both in the past
WOW not good news for monarch , I ll say Mercian for no rational reason at all ....... unless he goes tk
I reckon Mercian cause the Evolution styles more similar to the GCP01 but in my opinion he played best in a OBO from what I’ve seen so that
I would go with @nemo and say TK. They would seem to be pretty close to the shape and style of the Monarch designs
Interesting that many of the top male GK’s are going for more angular designs (Harte, Walter, Cortes & Blaak all TK, Vanasch, Lovell and Stockmann all Brabo). Out of the top guys I can only really think of Vivaldo, van deer Ven and Gibson in Obo.
Sad to see the Monarch brand that was at the forefront of the foam revolution seemingly now dead.....
Even if they do return I can’t see them doing much, especially if they lose their marquee figurehead in Pinner (which seems all but certain from his tweet)
I would think he’d go back to Mercian, I did hear that they said they’d welcome him back after he left to go to monarch. Perhaps @Simon_GK_Mason can confirm
Having used both TK and Monarch recently, I think there is quite a difference in style, shape and construction. The OBO is more similar in shape with the true right-angle as opposed to the essentially flat TK bent around the leg. Foam may be the same but the shape is quite different. The construction of the former style is shaped and formed as opposed to being enabled when you strap the leg guard on.
I hope Monarch return, having used their kit from around 1990 off and on...
i hope so too , although I seem to be the only keeper using monarch at my lowly level the rest bar one mazon user ( amazingly for midlands England) are obo
Having used OBO, Mercian (the older gear) and TK I am an avid fan of TK but would be very surprised if he went there. If I was in the market for new gear which unfortunately I’m not due to age and children stopping me playing I’d go for the new Mercian range really like the look of that.
Mercian would be one option the other OBO only time will tell
TK, Mercian, Obo......
No one's suggested Oakley yet
I reckon he's going back to canes.
How about Hinch and Pinner launching a range of their own?
I thought Hinch may be planning to do that with Grays anyway ?
Maybe their joint brand would be “Pinch”.......
Monarch's going bust in the middle of a recent trip was very expensive for me
Has now been announced Pinner back to Mercian. Good work there @Simon_GK_Mason
Some nice new bright red Pro's maybe?
Full credit to George for thanking his previous sponsors. It's a rare thing to see unfortunately, most players just scurry off without a word of thanks. Goodluck to him!
Well that’s the end of the gcp01 range then ........wonder what’s ahead for monarch
I know I should keep this quiet but.....
In Summer 2018 Monarch will be launching the Beardy01 range. Made specially for tubby short arses. Comes with a free haircut!
But what about the tall bald ones .....
