PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

New for 2012, the 7800 Velocity 5 Catch glove has many changes and improvements when compared to it's predecessor - the 7600.  The most drastic chage has come in the shape of the glove which can be described as a cross between the 7990 and the 5500.  Total Goalie staffers who have tried the glove describe the glove as having a 5500 fit and feel, but with a more "forward" hand position and a steeper thumb angle.

The palm area has been redesigned with segmented plastic pieces between the seams and laced break area.  These changes give the glove a great feel, superior protection, and allow for a consistent break-in even with thicker padding.  A new, double-T web gives a massive wide and deep pocket along with a more open face to provide more natural net coverage while still keeping a legal size.  A notched heel and extra reinforcement in the top of the T web allow for easy stick handling and easy shooting from any glove position.

The backhand features added segments, including a substantial backhand finger pad, for increased protection.  The cuff opening has been widened for added wrist flexibility.  Internally, the glove has three hand straps (wrist, backhand, and fingers) along with spring mesh finger gussets for breathability and quick drying.  The wrist strap extends outside of the cuff so that it can be tightened without detatching the backhand padding.

Keys to a Proper Fit:

  • The goalie's fingers should extend out to the end of the finger stalls of the inside palm to ensure a proper fit. However, any more than 1/2" from the tip of the goaltender's finger to the end of the finger stall and the goaltender will not have the leverage needed to properly close and control the glove.
     
  • The heel of your hand should line up with the heel and cuff of the catcher. If not, the proper balance between the cuff and catching portion of the glove may be disturbed, making the glove too cumbersome while sacrificing protection.
