Well it's a cheap blocker that's for sure. It'll take the puck like a champ and dump it to the corner for ya, but don't ask for it to do much else. I had to pick this up because I was building a set after being out of the sport for many years. Most uncomfortable glove in a blocker I have ever felt, and don't even think about trying to play a puck with your hand in one of these- it won't go well. It's even hard to poke check with this cheapo glove.The thumb strap broke on day 1- quite disappointing. The matching catch glove to this set is amazing for the cost though which is why I had high hopes for this. Try it on before you buy it.
