New for 2019, Vaughn Custom Sports has introduced their brand new evolution of the Ventus line. The Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Junior Goalie Blocker continues to be one of the lightest on the market, and one of the lightest that Vaughn has to offer.
Right out of the box you will notice the graphic which is designed as a series of long color zones that move from the bottom outside of the blocker, travel diagonally to the inside and then shoot up and back toward the inside, creating a full graphic over the face of the blocker for a wide visual look.
Looking at the face of the SLR2 Junior blocker, you will notice the flat faced design with a defined top angle that features an HD foam board through the face that helps control shots in to corners, giving the goaltender time to recover. Wrapping around to the flat design of the sidewall, Vaughn has provided an HD foam board with a carbon insert on the face for superior protection and a reactive blocking surface.
On the backhand, Quickslide has been lined on the bottom edge for added durability during RVH or paddle down movements. Further down, a flex cuff has been implemented for added rotation for quality projection angles along with an adjustable wrist strap for a customized fit.
Continuing on the palm of the SLR2 Junior, Vaughn has used a high hand and palm position to create a balanced feel on the blocker, along with a VX suede palm with double layered suregrip for added durability and grip on the stick. On the index finger, the inner seam has been removed to not only create a more comfortable feel, but also to provide durability.
Finally, on the thumb and finger protection of the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Junior, the fingers are protected by two flaps that create a wall over the finger tips with HD foam. Between the hand and sidewall, an air cushion foam pad has been added next to the thumb along with a double layered index finger protector for added protection for odd pucks that may ride up the goaltender’s stick.
If you are an Intermediate-level goaltender who is looking for a lightweight and reactive blocker, the Vaughn Ventus SLR2 Junior Goalie blocker is the blocker that will write “Your Story”.
