The new Bauer GSX is the perfect model for all those goalies out there trying to ball on a budget or for those who don't need the elite level performance of the 3S and Ultra Sonic. It is their newest rendition of Bauer’s S27 glove. Ranging in sizes from Senior all the way down to the little guys in the Youth gear.
The entirety of the exterior of this glove is covered in a synthetic leather material to give good durability, as well as some good performance at this price point.
The break angle on the new Supreme trapper is similar to the previous model, in a 75 degree break. The break is geared toward the fingertip-thumb closure angle, resulting in a wide open feel when the catch surface is open.
The GSX glove does not retain the catchlite palm that both the 3S and the Ultra Sonic have, instead the palm is completely synthetic leather. Although the catcher doesn't feature Bauer’s catchlite the closure of the glove is still very responsive.
The pocket features the double “T” introduced in the 2S Pro trapper. The benefits of the double “T” include a wider pocket opening and improved puck tracking when looking through the pocket when freezing the puck.
The strapping of the GSX youth varies from the Senior, Intermediate, and Junior as it features only a nylon wrist straps. The strap on the trapper allows for a somewhat customizable fit to keep the trapper comfortably in place without the worry of it being jarred loose.
The GSX glove will be featuring a one-piece cuff just like the rest of the Supreme family. The internals will be filled by a varying density of foams, while the exterior of the cuff will be using the synthetic leather.
The Bauer GSX Prodigy YTH trapper is available in White/Black, and comes in Regular hand (worn on your left hand), and Full Right (worn on your right hand).
