Max27 Posted June 28, 2018 Share Posted June 28, 2018 Thomas Greiss pro returns! Glove and Blocker. I got them from the NY Islanders proshop after practice today after my glove broke from a shot. First Impressions- Blocker- Amazingly Comfortable, and significantly larger than my old V5 7270. I will throw a comparison in sizing with the pics of the glove and blocker. He uses an XL palm, and it is very comfortable, very soft, and feels great on your hand. I removed the lacing, which he had on incredibly loose, to make the cuff of it more open. Overall, I love the Blocker, and I can't wait to get it on ice tomorrow. I love that it has GREISS embroidered in it. Its a beautiful blocker from an aesthetics standpoint, as well as a comfortability and balance perspective. Glove- The glove is a HUGE step-up from my previous Reebok 6K, which I got used from a Sporting Goods store called Play it Again Sports. I got it for Christmas from my Dad (Thanks for everything old man, love you) because he knew how much I wanted to become a goalie, but I was still unsure as to whether I really wanted to make the move from defense to goalie, but now I know I want to be a goalie. My Reebok glove was in good shape considering the visible wear on it, and it did what i needed it to do, and I love it. But, it does not compare in terms of comfortability, control, and overall feel that the Pro V Elite Greiss Glove gives to me. It has a 2 piece thumb and cuff, which I had on my old 6K and enjoyed the flexibility of it. It comes with a Double T, and unlike the other Double T gloves I have ever seen, the skate lace used in the pocket is the same lace used to go thru the split T. I have only seen double t pockets have a separate nylon go thru the split in the double t. The skate lace pocket, much more noticeably on the right side of the glove pocket, has a hell of a lot of puck marks and it looks dirty, which i don't mind at all to be completely honest. I love the look of puck marks, I think it shows that you're making a lot of saves and doing your job as the goalie, which is obviously to stop the puck. Overall, I love the gloves right out of the getgo and cannot wait to get them on ice. It is an honor to use gear that a goalie in the NHL used, especially when that goalie is one of your personal favorites, and when that goalie plays on your favorite team.
