Bauer Reactor 7000 Goalie Glove
The Bauer Reactor 7000 Glove is a great value glove out of the Bauer Reactor line this year. The glove will feature some of the characteristics and technologies of the premier-level Reactor 9000, just at a pricepoint that is more forgiving! The 7000 glove has the same 60-degree break and deep, single-T pocket that the Reactor 9000 offers. This is to ensure that you are snagging shots out of the air with ease, as the puck is directed into the deep pocket. As for comfort and mobility, the Reactor 7000 is built with a segmented backhand and Free Flex cuff so that you won't be restricted as you are reaching out for a tough-to-reach shot!

Keys to a Proper Fit:
- The goalie's fingers should extend out to the end of the finger stalls of the inside palm to ensure a proper fit. However, any more than 1/2" from the tip of the goaltender's finger to the end of the finger stall and the goaltender will not have the leverage needed to properly close and control the glove.
- The heel of your hand should line up with the heel and cuff of the catcher. If not, the proper balance between the cuff and catching portion of the glove may be disturbed, making the glove too cumbersome while sacrificing protection.
