CCM 500 Catch Glove

All new for 2013 is the CCM Extreme Flex 500 Catch Glove. The E-Flex is more of a catching glove than previous Lefebvre designed gloves. The pocket size has been increased from the Reebok Premier 4 580 and 590 model catchers. The cuff box size has been reduced to provide maximum catching surface. The break angle on the new 600 falls between that of the Reebok 580 (90 degree break) and 590 (75 degree break) making for the optimal catching style glove.An HD foam finger rail has been added to the backside of the catcher for added protection along the backside of the fingers. The back cuff is free floating from the catcher allowing the goalie to protrude the glove out and forward. This allows the goalie to really square the glove up to the shooter. The stock one piece cuff design offers a solid rigid surface that will not bend when hit with a puck. Inside the glove there are three tightening straps; backside of the finger, backside of the hand, and the wrist lock. This gives the goalie the option to wear the glove as tight or as loose as they would like for a true custom fit.The 500 series is a great glove for goalies who don't need Pro level protection and differs from the Pro model in that it uses a microfiber material on the outside of the catcher and does not use injected molded foam. The Nylon found on the Pro model is a 420D and the 500 series uses a 400D. Both 500 senior and intermediate models are available in the one piece cuff construction. The 500 series can not be personally customized but is offered in our own unique custom colors!FAST CLOSURE: Optimal finger positioning provides comfortable hand positioning to improve performance.NET COVERAGE: Radiused thumb provides a wider opening and larger catching surface area to maximize net coverage.PROTECTION: Additional foam on the finger tip area increases protection on the back of the hand.REBOUND CONTROL: Low-density soft foam at the center of the T-pocket reduces rebounds to provide increased control.

what i do is keep on opening and closing it as much as you can like when i'm watching tv also you can preheat your convection oven to about 170-180 nothing above that and put the glove on a cookie sheet and put the glove in for about 5-10 mins keep a close eye on it you don't want to burn the thing and after thats done take it out and put it on and open and close it but make sure its not hot, what this does it softens the leather inside of the glove so it breaks in the glove better

There are many ways and techniques to break in a glove. I can put it in a skate oven, tie it shut with a softball, or just work it in while sitting on the couch. There are more ideas online you can research as well.

Yes, this would be considered a finger tip to finger tip closure. Many compare it to a Vaughn closure.

Both gloves are built well, so quality and protection will be about the same. The 500 has a one piece cuff with a taller/slightly wider pocket, and it also places your hand and wrist in a slightly cocked forward position. The 4000 is a two piece cuff, it has a "index finger to thumb" closure, and less of a cocked forward hand position.

Yes - you can "bake" this glove in a convection or skate over, 180 degrees max for 8-10 minutes. That should help to soften it up and break it in.

Those are two great catchers. The GNETiKs pocket will be a bit deeper/wider and the palm will have more protection but will take alittle longer to break in. Just because of the pocket size, I would recommend the 5.0.
