I’ve had my Vaughn V6 2000’s for a few weeks now and I have had absolutely nothing bad to say about these pads and gloves .
They’re my all time favorites; the design, the padding, the construction, the style… Everything!
The pads inside channel is a flat channel which provides easier mobility and extra five hole coverage. The inside/back of the pad is very comfortable great cushioning , and the strap style and placing areas are fantastic and like most pads now let you take out straps , rearrange or put different ones in . I have a single break version and I must say it has excellent rebound control, pucks are always going to the corner after hitting the pad and unlike a lot of pads when the puck hits the toe area it doesn’t go directly back to the shooter it moves closer to your stick so you can cover or play it faster .
The V6 glove has excellent padding , from 16AAA to NHL level shots I have yet to get hurt with this glove unlike my previous glove (Brian M Series) . The V6 glove is very wide and has a big socket but also is very squeezable . The insides are very comfortable and the strap locations allow me to wear a wrist brace and still have perfect comfort with a tightened glove.
The V6 blocker also unlike my previous blocker (Brian Subzero) has fantastic padding and comfort . Especially appreciated is the finger padding which helps a lot with hard shots to your stick and or close battles.
So that’s my review on the Vaughn V6 2000 pads and gloves here are a few pictures of mine , the design of this gear is also great for pad wrap…
Thanks for taking my review!
