Mylec Senior Street Hockey Pro Goalie Catch Glove
decent, not great
I was looking into getting this glove along with the matching blocker because my last glove and blocker were just so old and worn out that they were literally taped together so they wouldn't fall apart. It just so happened that one of my friends actually had this glove with the blocker so I actually got to use them before I decided not to get this glove. The things about this glove that are good is that it fits rather comfortably and its not very heavy at all, its very mobile and quick. The problem is that this glove is not very big, it doesn't cover a lot of space . However, the main problem I have with this glove is that it is nearly impossible to catch a shot. I used my friends glove for about a years worth of roller hockey and I can only remember a handful of robberies I inflicted on a shooter. However, the instances where a shot came glove side on me and the ball/puck (whichever we were using) bounced out of the glove (and many times right to a shooter) are beyond count. I vividly remember facing a few breakaways and having a shot blasted right into my glove and the ball/puck just bounced back out right to the shooter who then took it and scored; what should have been a fantastic glove save turned into a dumb rebound and a goal. The only way you can make a glove is if the shot is perfectly into the mesh and you close the glove right as the shot comes in. This glove is decent in every aspect except snagging shots; which for me is the most important thing... I can't recommend this glove when I've used other gloves for the same price or less that are much better at securing shots and not allowing rebounds.
