    Original, standard P III was no breaks. Turco break is 2 breaks more or less emulating a TPS Summit or a Vaughn V3/V4. Gigure break is one break below the knee. I know when we carried the standard P III most butterfly goalies custom ordered Turco break wanting more flex. I haven't had any requests for Gigure break yet but I guess if you like the tight seal on the ice of a totally straight pad but need a little more flex the Gigure break is a nice option. However, my BEST advice is stick with the Turco break
