Brand new for 2017, Vaughn Custom Sports have revamped their Ventus line and brought the SLR Pro Carbon blocker into the goaltending game. The SLR Pro Carbon blocker is one of the lightest goalie blockers on the market, and the lightest of Vaughn’s offerings.
The SLR blocker design has been completely redone featuring a true one piece wrap around sidewall which offers complete protection and maximum coverage. The board itself has been flattened out and given a definitive angled top which helps move pucks to the corner. On the back, the wrist has been opened up to give superior articulation and integration for the chest protector. The board is reinforced with Vaughn’s Carbon materials which aid in moving pucks hard to the corner while reducing weight. This Carbon can also be found in the finger protection along the fingers tips and sidewall.
Moving into the palm of the blocker, Vaughn is using a VX Suede palm which allows for a soft grip on the stick, but provides reinforcements where necessary. These reinforcements run through the thumb, index finger and palm section. The back of the hand has an air cushion to it to help push more pucks to the corner and reduce strain on the wrist.
Compared to the SLR Pro, the SLR Pro Carbon features a domestic build with the highest quality materials.
If you are wanting the traditional Vaughn name combined with a lightweight blocker and ultimate hand protection, look no further than the Vaughn SLR Pro Carbon Goalie Blocker.
