CCM Premier R1.5 Senior Goalie Catch Glove
New for 2016 is the CCM Premier R1.5 Senior Goalie Catch Glove. The Premier series is built for the coverage style goalie who likes to maximize space in the net and is generally using the butterfly as their preferred method of making a save. The R1.5 glove uses a one piece thumb/cuff which helps create a stiffer face. By doing this, the coverage or butterfly style goalie will create a larger and stiffer coverage area. The one piece thumb/cuff is also injection molded so even after practice after practice and game after game, the glove will keep its original shape. The Premier series uses an off-set single tee which enable better opening and closing. It is very important for a goalie of this style to be able to make the glove as wide as possible to create as much surface and blocking area as possible. The R1.5 gloves uses a 1/4 felt and foam for a game ready feel. This 1/4 is generally thicker then other palms you will see at this price level.

CCM E-Flex II Glove Vs. CCM Premier Glove
CCM has two lines of goalie gear, the E-Flex II and the Premier series. Each line is made for a particular style goalie. The E-Flex II line is built for the hybrid style goalie who prefers to use many different save techniques and also likes to have more mobility while playing. The E-Flex II glove is built with a deep thumb angle which helps direct the puck into the pocket. This glove also uses a 600 break angle which is a break that comes straight through the middle of the hand. The CCM Premier series is built for the coverage style goalie who plays big and likes to use the butterfly technique as their preferred save technique. This goalie is always trying to maximize space and size and their goalie gear. The Premier goalie glove has a shallow thumb angle which creates more surface area. The Premier glove also uses a 590 break angle which is a break that is closer to the goalies fingers. Both gloves use a one piece cuff construction and both gloves use the same materials. Depending on your style and needs will determine which CCM goalie glove is right for you.
Senior Level Gloves Vs. Pro Level Gloves
Catch gloves are the one items that we generally recommend spending a little more money on (out of pads, blockers & gloves). The main differences you will see in a senior catch glove vs. a pro catch glove are the synthetic leathers and more importantly the felt used to protect the hand. It is the felt that makes a glove protective and function properly. If the felt does not crease properly, the glove will not open and close properly. If the felt is too thin, the goalie will feel stingers in the palm. In the past mid-level gloves were pretty bad with felt issues. However in the past two to three years, the high mid-level gloves are being made much, much better. The lower mid-level gloves still can have stinger issues, so if you are concerned at all with stingers – we recommend going with a higher mid-level glove or a pro level glove. The pro level gloves are built with pro felt which enables proper closure angle and creasing for break in. They also come in different padding options – games ready (most common) and practice palm. A practice palm is essentially so stiff that you cannot open or close the glove however the felt is so thick that you will probably never get a stinger. Most high level goalies only use a practice palm in practice situations just to prevent injury. For games they generally use a game ready palm.
