The reason this blocker is the best on the market is pretty simple. It protects better than all the rest, it lasts longer, and it feels great. Its made to protect your entire hand and cushion any impacts from hard falls, even awkward ones. The finger protection is also extremely comfortable and fully protects you, which is a combination that most blockers just cant seem to perfect. It also feels very similar to old-school blockers for a reason. Its design is very similar to the popular Reactor line of the 90s, that were constructed tougher than all the rest as an answer to game becoming much more physical and fast.
This blocker is packed full of exciting bells and whistles. But the ones that really stand out are the extra hand and finger protection, as well as the extended blocking area on the side to give you full deflection control. Read Full Review
Vaughns latest blocker feels different in a very good way. Its designed to protect your fingers the entire way around, and also has cushioned padding for the back of the hand. The hand opening is also a little larger than before, so itll fit easily no matter the size of your hand and arm. The side of this blocker is made to be an extension of the traditional blocking area, which will really help to deflect pucks exactly where you want them to go, giving you full control.
This blocker is just, to put simply, very well rounded. It will last a very long time, it can deflect pucks with great control, and it feels very familiar to longtime goaltenders that are looking to upgrade or replace equipment. Read Full Review
The G-Netik blocker is made to last. The palm is designed not to slip around, which will keep the blocker exactly where it needs to be. It also features a removable forefinger pad, for players that feel that the newer finger protectors restrict their movement.

A great easy breathing finger gusset system to keep you cool help to round out this nearly perfect blocker.

Warriors Ritual Pro Custom blocker is used by many of the top goalies in the pros, so it is made to meet all of the pro-level sizing standards. While it meets all the standards, its blocking surface is larger than most, and gives that extra advantage for goaltenders that are looking for any edge over their opponent. The lower board position allows for better stick control and will keep the lumber for bouncing out of your hand. A collapsing palm is made to handle moisture better with time, so it will not need stitch repair as quickly as others.
