Vaughn Custom Sports 7490 Velocity 5 Leg Pad

The Vaughn 7490 Goalie Leg Pads are styled directly from the 7990 series leg pads and they are an extremely high quality imported pad. The materials and construction processes used to create the 7490 series are nearly identical to those used in the 7990 pad, making them true Vaughn Custom Spec pads. These leg pads are designed the Hybrid goal tender who like the feel of a softer, Velocity-like boot and shin, but also prefer a thinner, more rigid thigh rise.The 7490 leg pads also feature many of the upgrades found in the 7800 leg pads, including the new internal foam components that eliminate gaps to get more foam into the corners of the pad. By pushing more foam into the corners, Vaughn has created a more solid pad with a firmer shape without making the pad play stiff. Addtionally, the outside calf protection has been widened to more fully cover the back leg area.The 7490 keeps the popular adjustable knee lock from the previous model, as well as the angled strapping that runs underneath the knee bend on the leg. * Knee cradle has adjustment laterally and vertically for custom fit * Solid top outside roll * Taller plus 1.5 sizing * Molded lightweight thigh guard * New V5 graphics * Inner edge balance stabilizer with wide profile for balance * Full leg cradle * Flex-Pac interal padding for rebound control * Custom spec construction for a higher level of performance * SENIOR Available in sizes 32+1.5, 34+1.5, 35+1.5, 36+1.5, 37+1.5

Pros: Helped improve my game, Easy to use, Great value, Quality, like it's an extension of your leg
Cons: straps are not adjustable
These pads are amazing!! I've had them for 6 months and not a single issue or bit of wear, playing 3 times/week. I had RX8 Limited Ed. that felt terrible and fell apart in 3 months. I then tried a friends 7480's several times and fell in love with them. However, the thing that I didn't like was the lack of calf wrap protection. Enter V5 7490's...great wrap, problem solved. They move like a dream, rotate perfectly and have superior materials to the 7460, thus the cost variance. The single break creates a wall in front of you and they move with your body effortlessly, no fighting the pad. The only change I would make is to have the top thigh strap be adjustable. My favorite pad ever!
