Designed for the mid-high level goal tender, the Vaughn 7490 Velocity Goalie Catch Glove starts with the proven Velocity design and improves key features to provide more comfort, more control, and more performance. New for 2012, the Vaughn 7490 Catch Glove is styled directly from the 7990 series catch glove and it is an extremely high quality imported glove. The materials and construction processes used to create the 7490 series are nearly identical to those used in the 7990 glove, including the added palm padding and new laced break for an improved closure and quick break in. * Designed with a deep contoured catching surface and a new wider palm area to give more depth and surface area to the glove * Offset T-web pocket with skate lace lacing provides a larger pocket area and improved puck retention * Reinforcement along the top of the T-Web provides extra support along the top perimeter edge * Top cuff and thumb with molded deflecting ramp limit puck skip over and provide added stability in the top edge of the glove * New internal hand design gives a more vertical thumb angle and hand position * Dual adjustable straps over the fingers and back hand provide added security and custom adjustment * New anchored wrist strap for an even tighter fit and adjustment around the wrist * Wide cuff opening provides added room for increased wrist movement and performance * Three piece back hand protection with HD foams with deflector ramp over the fingers to deflect impacts away from the ends of the finger tips * Pre-Formed shape with flex seams on internal padding for game ready feel from day 1 * Heat moldable for a customizable hand fit * Extra padding in palm area helps eliminate stingers and control rebounds

The skate laces are definitely a bit less durable than the nylon lacing, but chances are you won't have any problem with them. The advantage to using them is that they help soften the impact of the puck in the pocket. When you catch the puck in the pocket, the impact will feel more "cushiony" - if that's a word. Drawback would be durability - as the laces tend to absorb moisture and could break more easily. That being said, we don't hear of many skate lace pockets breaking so I think you'll be fine.

Question
thumb angle?
I have the 7490 glove and like it very much, except that I would prefer a more vertical thumb angle. Does the 7800 have a more upright thumb? Or should I look at Vision/Ventus models?

The 7800 does have a more vertical thumb angle than the 7490, and the Ventus/Vision has a more vertical thumb angle than the 7800 does. According to Vaughn, if you're noticing a lot of puck marks on the finger side of the pocket, then you'll want to stay with the 7490. If you're taking a lot of shots off of the thumb mold, then you'll want to move towards the 9500.

If you're looking for a Vaughn glove with the most vertical thumb angle, then then T5500 TG glove would be the way to go. The link for that glove is below, and I've also attached a video for it as well:

Like all gloves it will take a small bit of work to break this glove in, but after a few skates it should flex very well!

Depending on the quality of shots, you may want to look at something with a little more protection to get you into junior and college hockey.

The break in the 7490 is more of a full finger closure, with the break angle being very close to the thumb. And yes - this glove is suitable for high school level shots.
