The Vaughn LT80 Ventus blocker features a unique construction that combines the blocker board and side hand shield into one seamless unit. This creates added stiffness and reduces twisting under high impact loads for improved puck control and more solid blocking surfaces. A special high density internal foam board provides light weight, and it is reinforced with a polyethylene plastic overlay for added protection and durability. The bottom board is beveled to provide a tight seal to the ice when playing in the paddle down position.
The hand and palm position is designed to angle and tilt the board forward from the hand to create more blocking coverage. The palm is constructed using Vaughn's MSH3 material that gives it incredible feel and durability. The fingers are anatomically designed with curved fingers to for a more comfortable hand position and has a textured overlay surface that provides a precise grip for excellent stick control. Mesh finger gussets improve air flow and reduce heat buildup. The palm is moved one (1) inch higher of center to put more of the blocking surface below the hand.
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).
