CCM 500 Catch Glove

All new for 2013 is the CCM Extreme Flex 500 Catch Glove. The E-Flex is more of a catching glove than previous Lefebvre designed gloves. The pocket size has been increased from the Reebok Premier 4 580 and 590 model catchers. The cuff box size has been reduced to provide maximum catching surface. The break angle on the new 600 falls between that of the Reebok 580 (90 degree break) and 590 (75 degree break) making for the optimal catching style glove.An HD foam finger rail has been added to the backside of the catcher for added protection along the backside of the fingers. The back cuff is free floating from the catcher allowing the goalie to protrude the glove out and forward. This allows the goalie to really square the glove up to the shooter. The stock one piece cuff design offers a solid rigid surface that will not bend when hit with a puck. Inside the glove there are three tightening straps; backside of the finger, backside of the hand, and the wrist lock. This gives the goalie the option to wear the glove as tight or as loose as they would like for a true custom fit.The 500 series is a great glove for goalies who don't need Pro level protection and differs from the Pro model in that it uses a microfiber material on the outside of the catcher and does not use injected molded foam. The Nylon found on the Pro model is a 420D and the 500 series uses a 400D. Both 500 senior and intermediate models are available in the one piece cuff construction. The 500 series can not be personally customized but is offered in our own unique custom colors!FAST CLOSURE: Optimal finger positioning provides comfortable hand positioning to improve performance.NET COVERAGE: Radiused thumb provides a wider opening and larger catching surface area to maximize net coverage.PROTECTION: Additional foam on the finger tip area increases protection on the back of the hand.REBOUND CONTROL: Low-density soft foam at the center of the T-pocket reduces rebounds to provide increased control.

Best Description: Goalie
Solid Glove, Good Catcher
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Easy to use, Features
As a lead-in, I attended the Total Goalie Demo in Pittsburgh and tried every brand/model of glove I could before settling on the CCM, buying this and the accompanying blocker.
Comfort: Very comfortable. Tight enough that it feels secure on your hand, but loose enough to allow freedom of movement.
Design: The thumb-to-forefinger closure is a big seller for me. It feels more comfortable when you close it and it's much easier to pick up puck, flat, off the ice than most other gloves. Only other gloves I tried that closed as comfortably were the high-end Vaughns.
Durability: I've only used this a few months, so it's tough to say. No problems, so far. It broke in fairly quickly, but that's also playing up to four times a week.
Features: Lots of internal straps to adjust the fit.
Performance: I love how this thing catches. I must have tried 15 gloves at the demo and the only one that compared to the CCMs was the (pro model) Brian's G-Netik. This thing, like the Brian's, wants to gobble up pucks, and seems to snap shut almost of its own accord when a puck hits it in a catchable spot.
Protection: Bottom line, this is a price-point product, not a pro one, so you may get a few minor stingers if you are facing high-quality shooters and get tagged in the wrong spot. You're not going to get injured, though.
Value: So long as you're not facing pro shooters, in which case you should get the pro model, you're going to be very happy with this glove.
