The B 7460 blocker has been optimized to present a larger blocking surface by keeping the board positioned more square to the puck position on the ice. This "face forward" design presents more of the blocking surface while in the goalie's stance - increasing the chances that the save will be made.
New for 2012, an enhanced HD foam side shield design increases the coverage area when the goalie's hand is turned out. Two piece articulating finger protection with plastic inserts layed with high density foams and side index finger padding provides maximum protection.

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).
