Bought this on clearance, incredible deal. Best blocker ever used, 20+ years playing. Excellent protection, fits snug, but still very free movement, very well balanced. Excellent pro armour. The tapered board is great for paddle down, and the glove is snug keeping board tight to you, great for stick handling. Only downside is MSRP, but if you can get one on clearance, don't pass it up.
