Vaughn Custom Sports 7000 Custom Blocker

The Vaughn B7000 TG is a hybrid of two popular blocker designs - the B7800 Velocity 5 and the B7000 - that some NHL goalies have been using recently. This blocker is exclusive to Total Goalie, and it is the result of careful collaboration between our goalie experts and the talented designers at Vaughn Custom Sports.For starters, the blocking board is a stock 7800 Velocity 5 board which features a lightweight, bindingless board with a tapered bottom and top. The board is thicker on the sides to help provide extra protection over the backhand, as well as a flat blocking surface between the blocker board and the side hand protection.The side hand, palm, finger protection, and cuff are from the popular B7000 design of year's past. This design has a wider opening between the thumb and blocking board to give a little more freedom of movement, but the side finger and thumb protection is still bulky enough to protect against pucks that ride up the paddle towards the goalie's hand. A blocking rib sits on the outside of the side hand protection to help seal the hole between the blocker and the body, and a removable padded pillow sits between the side protection and the palm for a customized fit and feel. The blocker palm is centered on the blocker board for incredible balance.The palm is made entirely of Vaughn's BS material for extra durability. Finger protection moves with the goalies fingers, and an additional elastic strap attaches the index finger protection to the index finger to keep this vulnerable area more protected as well. * 7800 Velocity 5 blocker board atop a B7000 palm and side hand protection * Bindingless blocker surface for a clean look * Blocking rib on side hand protection to help seal holes between the blocker and body * Full Vaughn BS palm for added durability * Removable padded pillow between side and protection and palm for custom fit and feel * Vintage waffle design standard

Older design yet really protective
I'm coming from an old Vaughn 5500 which has very little side hand protection. I like the fact that it's not as bulky there as today's gloves are, but I have been hurt from time to time when pucks hit that part of the glove. I was looking for a glove that had more protection, but also wasn't as bulky as other gloves are. The TG7000 was a perfect choice for me. Side had protection is smaller than on most other blockers, but the Ventus style finger guards provide more than enough protection.
Balance, wrist mobility and comfort are all really good.
