Buying a Pro Blocker Vs. Mid Level Blocker
As we compare differences in gear levels, we explain whether you need to spend a little more or where you can save a few dollars. A pro blocker is built with the highest level of material and developed with the utmost care in construction. The palm is the one area that you generally see wear issues with a blocker. For any goalies that use a lot of tape, particularly where the goalie holds the stick in their ready position, they are likely to see a lot of palm issues. In contrast, goalies that do not use tape in this location do not see significant palm issues.
In addition, the materials used in the pro palm prevent premature wear in the binding area. There are no added safety concerns between a pro level blocker and a high mid-level blocker. If you need to spend your money wisely, the blocker is where we recommended going down a level to do so. Even with a little extra wear, the price of a high mid-level blocker is almost half of a pro level blocker.
