New for 2012, the Graf replacement goalie cowling has gone through an "addition by subtraction" process for 2012. Gone is the traditional "Grilamid" toe cap (an additional "bump out" strip at the end of the toe cap) and the additional material on the forward inside edge of the cowling previously used to support additional "Overdrive" blades. In addition to removing the Overdrive blade mount, the forward inside edge of the cowling has been cut back dramatically.
The end result is a cowling that is 30% lighter, and it also allows the cowling to be tipped farther towards the inside edge before making contact with the ice. Goalies who like to keep lower to the ice but still want a cowling that allows for a greater attack angle will really love this new cowling for 2012.
