Brian's brings the insanely popular G-NETiK blocker to the masses with the new 5.0 blocker for 2014. Though the glove is made internationally to bring costs down, 90% of the materials sourced for construction are equal to or the same as those found on the domestically made G-NETiK Pro blocker. And with Brian's unmatched one-year limited warranty, you can be confident that the construction quality and performance will meet the high standards that Brian's has set in these areas over the past several years. We've compared the G-NETiK Pro and the 5.0 blockers side by side, and we could barely tell the difference.
The G-NETiK 5.0 blocker strikes a great balance of protection, coverage, and light weight. The blocker board itself features a bindingless design for maxiumum length and width, and the board is placed 1" lower on the hand to give the goalie extra reach when stretching for the puck. The thick blocker board integrates nicely with the substantial side hand protection, which also features a removeable pillow between the palm and sidewall for rigidity and protecion.
The blocker cuff has a segmented design that allows it to have a wide open design - perfect for exceptional wrist mobility. The palm is made of cream colored nash and also features a "No Slip" SBA palm for additional wear protection. This No Slip palm material also gets tackier as it gets wet, so keeping a firm grip on your stick is no problem even if the goalie sweats a lot. Accordion style, wrap around finger protection provides unmatched protection against stray pucks and sticks, and the blocker also includes a removeable forefinger protector for even more coverage.
