Brand new for 2020, Vaughn has continued on one of the longest running lines in all of goaltending that has been developed and perfected over years of top-level play. The Vaughn Velocity V9 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Blocker simply enough, deserves the tag line No Testing Needed.
Right out of the box you will notice the V9 graphics that immediately give off a distinctive look and appeal. The graphics run vertically through the blocker with precise designs to give a familiar Vaughn look with a modern spin.
Looking at the face of the Vaughn V9 Blocker, you will notice the flat board design with a deep top bend for assisted puck deflection. Internally is a thicker foam board for increased stiffness with a Pure Carbon reinforced front board. Finishing off the face, the face is laced down to keep the materials tighter to the blocker and offer superior puck control.
On the back hand, a cushion pad provides extra comfort and protection when blocking in tight shots. Around on the side you will find added finger protection with composite core protection and specific areas like the index fingers provided with extra protection. Along the sides of the blocker are added Carbon inserts for impact resistance.
Finally, on the palm of the V9, a new palm design with changes in specific areas to provide the goalie with the best fit and comfort possible. This palm is made up of VX suede which gives the goaltender more control and grip over their stick to make key plays.
Compared to the Vaughn V9 Pro Senior, the V9 Pro Carbon will feature strategic carbon inserts for higher impact resistance along with higher levels of construction.
If you are an elite-level goaltender who is looking for a blocker with high levels of protection, designed to direct shots precisely where the goalie wants them, look no further than the Vaughn Velocity V9 Pro Carbon Senior Goalie Blocker.
