7480 Leg Pads

Limited Edition and new for 2011, the Vaughn 7480 Goalie Leg Pads are styled directly from the 7900 series leg pads and they are an extremely high quality imported pad. The materials and construction processes used to create the 7480 series are nearly identical to those used in the 7900 pad, making them true Vaughn Custom Spec pads. These leg pads are designed the Hybrid goal tender who like the feel of a softer, Velocity-like boot and shin, but also prefer a thinner, more rigid thigh rise. * Taller 1.5 thigh rise for increased blocking surface without massive weight * Solid construction throughout and emphasized in the thigh area for tighter five-hole coverage * Solid top outside roll and internal high density foams provide a more solid an improved blocking surface * Fully adjustable knee cradle is movable and customizable for a precise fit * Wide flat inner edge to provide excellent pad stability while down on the ice * High density foam on the inner edge prevents hard shots from pushing past the five-hole and gives a tighter seal * Wide leg channel aids in pad rotations and allows for complete pad control for quick movements * Molded thigh guard for full coverage * Limited Edition graphics provide a more visually imposing appearance

Question
What is the difference between the 7480 pad and the 7490 vaughn pad? Also would this be a good pad if you are used to using a double flex pad?

Just an FYI, the top thigh strap is not adjustable on the 7490 as the TH Expert stated.

The differences between the two pads are:

- 7490 has wider outside leg protection, similar to the design of the 7800
- Internal foam design has been refined to eliminate gaps between foam components, and to take the foams further out to the edges of the pads. These refinements should help keep the pads from "shrinking" as quickly as in past models.
- New graphics
- Adjustable knee cradle and upper thigh strap

The 7490's are made of solid sheets of foam from the bottom of the knee to the top of the thigh rise, making the pad much stiffer from the lower knee break up. These pads also don't have much of an S shape to them, so it will be an adjustment for you if you're used to a flexible, double break pad.

Yes. There are a few NHL goalies who use this pad, so if it's good enough for the highest level it will work on any other level of play.

They would be good, but would not last as long as the 7990 Pro pads.

Yes - these pads are great for young hybrid goalies. They play soft, they are pretty flexible, and if you've got a wide butterfly you should be able to close the five hole pretty well.

Yes - the 7480 would be a good pad for you. It will hold up well for the 1-2 years that you will fit the pad, and performance of the pad is great.

The 7480/7490 are only available with 1.5" thigh rises. We only have the newer 7490 pads in a 34+1.5 sizing.
