The 4K blocker is a great starter blocker for beginning or younger goaltenders. It's lightweigt design and protective features will allow any new goaltender to play with confidence, whether he or she is at a beginner or advanced level.
The blocker board is made of durable synthetic leather, and it is flared at the top to keep pucks from skipping over the board face and into the net. The side hand protection is made of medium density foam that cover both the hand and the forefingers.
The palm is made of a soft, vented nash material with spring mesh finger gussets for flexibility and ventilation. A velcro adjustment strap sits over the wrist for a custom fit, and the cuff opening is wide to allow for great wrist mobility. Wrap around finger protectors provide coverage to both the back and sides of the fingers.
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).
