Vaughn Velocity V10 Junior Goalie Catch Glove – Special Edition
New for 2023 is the Vaughn Velocity V10 Junior Catch Glove. The design of the Velocity V10 Junior glove keeps the traditional 60 degree.
Vaughn has made a huge emphasis on the Velocity V10 to be game ready off the shelf – especially at the junior and youth levels. We noticed this right away when we received these gloves. These gloves have a game ready feel right out of the bag that open and close with easy. We have noticed kids have had a much easier time opening and closing this off the shelf compared to other junior catch gloves.
Some notable changes for 2023 include the one-piece thumb. The Velocity has generally been a two-piece thumb/cuff design. The Velocity V10 will only come with the one-piece design. This allows the goalie to have maximum surface area while maintaining wrist flexibility. The wrist flexibility is popular among goalies who stick handle with the pocket of the glove in a downward position. In this downward position the goalie needs a good bit of wrist movement to be able to properly play the puck. The Velocity V10 glove will use a wider and deeper split T with a U-shaped pocket in the V10 catch glove. At the base of the pocket there is a single t that splits into a double T the higher it goes in the pocket. The U-shaped design with the single T at the base allows the glove much more flexibility than a traditional glove with a double T going the entire way to the base of the pocket. As the pocket transitions from the single T at the base to the double T in the pocket, the glove becomes very soft and deep in the main catching area of the glove. The Velocity V10 Pro glove can be heat molded for a customized fit.
Vaughn will keep the thumb angle which is extremely popular among pro and college goalies. This angle is closely related to the 5500 glove and the first generation V1 glove (commonly referred to as the Kipper Spec). This angle has a more natural feel when closing the glove and seems to give better closure by changing the angle. The thumb mold on the Velocity V10 has been lengthen by a bit which again is more similar to the popular 5500 gloves. The overall profile of the glove has been thinned out which allows for greater flexibility off the shelf without compromising protection by adding extra padding on the inner palm.
