The CCM Retro Flex II Pro Catch Glove is the same as the Extreme Flex II Pro glove but with all new RETRO design and a few new custom ordering options!
The Retro Flex II Pro is more of a catching glove than previous Lefebvre designed gloves. The pocket size has been increased from the CCM 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 CCM 580 (90 degree break) and 590 (75 degree break) making for the optimal catching style glove. Reebok has opened up the break options when custom ordering your Retro Flex or Extreme Flex catchers. You will now have the option to order the popular CCM Premier 590 glove break angle in the CCM graphics!
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. A two piece cuff is available through custom order.
Internally the catcher is wrapped in Reebok's grey SureGrip material. Suregrip is a no slip material that has great durability and really keeps your hand in place. 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.
Measure your hand from the heel of the palm to the tip of the middle finger, then consult the chart below to find the size that will work for you.

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.
