My son uses a Vaughn SLR 2 Youth set (pads, blocker, glove). He’s had them since last summer. The pads and blocker are great, he loves them. The glove, however, he can’t close, even after almost a year. Its causing trouble with his game, the puck often bounces out.
I’ve had it heated at the store a couple of times. I’ve sat up watching hockey opening and closing (probably 10,000+ times, no joke!) but still its not closing easily. Put a puck in a tied it up for weeks. I’ve not done the hot water procedure.
Any thoughts on what I might do next (besides the hot water)?
Also, any thoughts on gloves for youth? Options? It might be time to abandon the glove and look at something else.
Thanks to all who reply! We appreciate the help!
