In a nutshell:
- The Focus is a much straighter pad, is has a one piece knee block, a flat faced front with a single break below the knee, all leather straps (some are adjustable) and a wider leg channel. Very stiff pad, built for a goalie with a wide butterfly.
- The Zero G has a very pronounced S shape to it, a multi pad knee stack, flat knee rolls on the face with a double pad break, leather calf and boot straps with nylon webbing knee and thigh straps, and an elastic strap that wraps around your calf. The Zero G has good flex at the knee breaks, but the boot break is stiff. Goalies with wide or narrow butterflies will have success with this pad.
- The Pro Stock is essentially a Zero G with a bigger toe taper and an offset boot channel, a single break below the knee, all leather straps, and the calf wrap has been extended to fully wrap around the calf. It's a stiff pad from boot to thigh. The pad was built more for goalies with a wider butterfly, but because it has a nice S shape to it, goalies with somewhat narrow butterflies should still be able to close the five hole with it.
