Exclusive Goalie Equipment Retailer of USA Hockey
The 2012 Pro Stock Halak Arch Blocker features the same upgrades and specs that NHL Goalie Jaroslav Halak made to his original, customized Zero G Blocker and includes the new "Arch" graphic that he wears during home games. The Pro Stock blocker is an upgraded version of the popular Zero G blocker, and at 1.48 lbs it is one of the lightest blockers on the market.
Upgrades on the Pro Stock blocker include an additional, removeable air pillow between the thumb and side deflector board - great for goalies who use this protection often when turning the blocker hand out in the butterfly position. An extended HD foam side deflector board, made to the maximum allowed width, is as wide as the blocker board to maximize blocking surface when the goalies hand is turned out.
The blocker board is beveled on all four sides to both reduce overall weight yet keep the thickness of the board directly over the goalie's hand. The cuff opening is wide, and it has nylon lacing on the outside hand to allow the cuff to be tightened or loosed based on the goalie's needs. The palm has nash reinforcements in the high wear areas, and the fingers feature "spring mesh" gussets that allow for great air flow. Full, segmented HD foam finger protectors wrap the fingers, and the added foam forefinger protector found on the Zero G blocker has been removed.
Brian's is a true custom equipment company, and the Pro Stock blocker can be customized to a virtually unlimited list of specs and colors. To get your custom order started, contact a Total Hockey representative today.
Measure your hand from the heel of the palm to the tip of the middle finger, then consult the chart below to find the size that will work for you.
Key to a Proper Fit:
The blocker should be fitted based on hand size. The goalie's fingers should be no more than 1/4" from the end of the fingers in the palm. If the fingers are too long, chances are the hand tabs that tie down the palm to the blocker are too large. This will cause the blocker to wobble, tilt or rotate on the goaltender's hand, seriously affecting control while limiting coverage (blocking surface).
