The XR Custom 7 Series line is unique in that it offers a limited number of Vaughn's most popular custom colors and construction options to the XR line of gear at a significantly reduced price. Though this line is made overseas, it uses high quality, domestically made materials - most of which are found in Vaughn's pro level, domestically constructed products. Finally, customers can now get a custom-made, high quality pad at an overseas pad price!
The XR Velocity 7 blocker is competely new for 2016, and like everything else in the Velocity line it has been enhanced to provide a more rigid, protective blocking surface than in past models.
The blocking board features a tapered board at the front and back edges to place the beef of the board over the hand. New for 2016, the front blocking board features a layer of high impact polyethelyne over a layer of HD foam to provide enhanced blocking performance. The perimeter of the board features a traditional binding for a classic look. Palm placement is 3/4" high of center to put more board in front of the goalie's hand to increase reach and net coverage.
The sidewall is constructed using high density foam and plastic. It has a wide opening for the stick, and the bottom of the sidewall has a vertical deflecting rail that provides a great seal between the hand and the body.
The palm is made of a Clarino nash material and has spring mesh gussets for breathability and flexibility. Internally, a softer air cushion pad sits between the blocker board and the back of the hand for extra protection and comfort. The fingers are protected with the "Ventus" style protectors, which are wider at the base to prevent twisting and are made of HD foams for great protection. Wrap around protection on all sides of the fingers, including double HD foam padding on the shot side of the index finger, fully protects the goalies hand from stray pucks or sticks.
A two-piece, wide open cuff allows for excellent wrist mobility, which can be further tailored using a single velcro wrist strap.
