ArdeFIN Posted August 28, 2020 Share Posted August 28, 2020 (edited) The topic is short and descriptive. I have a huge problem with how I angle my hand to cuff and wrist plate, or the other way around. And this leads to me getting pucks to my wrist, just below the sleeve. Today I stopped a slapshot there and I wasn't able to close my catcher after that. It was a close range shot where I didn't even get to BF or nothing else just stood my ground in a sort of retro style standup everything tight and cover. Someone would mention that a slapshot from that distance was very fair play while playing a practise hockey to enjoy. It just might be me and my habit of holding the glove sort of wrist straight which opens up the pinky side of the wrist from cuff to get those pucks in. This was fifth or sixth shot that sting and shots that gave a feel have been many more for a year and half I've been playing goalie. Is there any way I could get over this, except build something to my gloves that would add needed coverage or change the angle of my hand. Building or modding would be easiest on two piece gloves, just move the cuff part a bit and wrist in opposite direction. But one piece gloves are a no go for this kind of modding. I've tried to teach myself the glove positioning and angling but it's been zero results so far. I'll have to take a pic so you understand my issue here in a right way. Edit: Quicker than ever a picture added. Edited August 28, 2020 by ArdeFIN Picture Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
