Making The Switch

from the News & Observer,

The Hurricanes switched two games ago to the modified jerseys, which feature a looser fit on the arms, more air-knit fabric and less of the “bead-away” water repellency technology touted by Reebok.

“I think there were enough complaints league-wide that obviously there was a noticeable difference,” Wesley said Tuesday. “So far, it’s been a good change.”...

The newest jerseys have the same necklines, are cut the same way and offer few visual clues to the changes in materials used. But the adjustments are enough to prompt some praise.

“I think everyone likes the new ones a lot better,” Carolina center Matt Cullen said. “It was just funny to go back to the old material, and it feels better.”
