The 18K catch glove is all that goalies are looking for. Built off of the popular Premier 3 catch glove design, the new 18K has some addtional features that make a great glove even better.For starters, the glove features a one-piece, injection molded cuff and thumb that is designed to create a wide, deep glove pocket. The stock model comes in the 590 design, which creates a traditional 60 degree closure (index finger to thumb closure). The pocket is somewhat deep, and the top of the T-web completely seals to the ice when covering the puck.The opening cuff in the glove is detatched, which allows for great wrist mobility. The backhand features three tigthening straps - wrist, backhand and fingers. New on the 18K, the nylon webbing wrist strap has been run through the cuff so that you don't have to detatch the cuff to tighten the strap. * MAXCOVERAGE: One-piece injection molded thumb cuff design maintains 3D shape * QUICKRELEASE: Forward angle provides more wrist mobility * SOLIDSEAL: Single Pro T pocket design for greater visibility in the pocket * MOBILITY: Large cuff opening for freedom of movement and wrist flexibility. * Interior palm made of clarino with mesh finger stalls. * 590 design (60 degree break). * Permiter Measurements: Senior - 45, Intermediate - 44

4 out of 5(80%)reviewers would recommend this product to a friend.
This glove feels comfortable, breaks in very easy,lite, but the protection is lacking, took shots to the palms, which stung my hand and these shots were from a men's pickup game, would not recommend for higher level of play.
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, solid seal to ice
Had this trapper now for about one season and I love it. It's very comfortable to wear and has a nice tight fit. The one piece construction gives it a solid feel as well. I'm one of those goalies who rarely close their glove. Replaced my old Koho 700 which used to cough out shots regularly. Not with the 18k- what goes in stays in because of the deep pocket. Also, the trapper has a real solid seal when covering pucks on the ice. So far, I have nothing bad to say about the Reebox 18k trapper.
Review 3 for 18K Catch Glove
Not bad but stiff
Pros: Great value, Easy to use
Not bad. I'm going from an Itech RX-7 to this. The glove is lightweight but the pocket is somewhat stiff. Expect a LOT of pucks to come flying out of it for the first few games. Other than that not bad. I think as far as break in capability, Bauers are the best out of the box with Vaughns being the worst.
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
This glove is amazing! It has great protection, has great closer, and great playing the puck with. One of the main features about this glove that i love is the one piece cuff, its great for the butterfly goaltenders. Another main feature I like is the wrist strap that extends out the cuff, I like this because I like having a tight glove so I can tighten my glove on the fly with my blocker still on. I have to say this glove is one of the best out there you have to get it.
I just purchaed this catcher to replace my L7 catcher. What turned me on to this glove is that it is a one piece glove. After i tried it on, it broke as thought i had been wearing it for ever. It was soft and effortless to close and open. At the game last night i did not even realize i had a catcher on. It fealt very light. Afte seeing sevral shots, none of the stiching appears to be any worse for wear. Plus the way the top hand padding opens up allows for better rang of wrist motion. It feals like a pro model without the price.
