Both are great options, though each will perform differently. The V5 will be "softer" at every break, and rebounds that hit it will stay much closer to the pad than they will with the Ritual. The Ritual will have soft breaks below the knee and at the boot, though the upper break will he harder. However, the Rituals will slide better on the ice, and they'll fit slightly taller as well which may help provide better 5 hole coverage in the butterfly.
Hope that helps! If you want to discuss each in more detail, please email or call or customer service line and our staff will talk through both options with you.
