12/17/2012 – What is the difference between Hi-Control and Hi-Rebound ROBO foam?
Response From CranBarry: Hi-ControlHi-Control suits a agressive player who kicks with conviction and also likes to log at short corners. The pads are narrow allowing ease of movement when going down or getting up. Essentially the design of the kickers is identical to the Hi-Rebound-only the foam density being different. The hand protectors are different from the Hi-Rebound ones, the left Hi-Control is identical in design to the Hi-Rebound except in cosmetic appearance, the right is the traditional tube style for logging.Hi-ReboundThe Hi-Rebound kit is suited to the more modern player who stays upright for as long as possible and likes to use a passive deflecting type of kicking. The pads are wider than the HC giving a bigger area against attackers, they have stiff wings to delfect the more slowly to be cleared with the feet afterwards. Again, the kickers are the same design as the Hi-Control but with more rebound. The hand protectors are a different design to the Hi-Control. The left Hi-Rebound is very similar to the Hi-Control, the rebound is obviously higher for a more deflecting style of play. The right Hi-Rebound holds the stick at a different angle to the Hi-Control for a more upright style of play, it also has a much bigger surface area for reaction saves. The different angle takes some getting use to but works great for me.
11/13/2012 – What is the difference between the left and right hand protectors for the Hi Rebound?
Response From CranBarry: The Hi Rebound left hand protector is flatter, with high rebound but with good control. It has a softer inner for increased comfort and fit. It is also:- Sized so that the protector is stable on the hand. More ball control is possible with greater power- Has a fairly flat face, but still shaped to control the ball and direct it downward- Slightly square edges which can be used to deflect the ball.- An almost flat bottom edge when placed on the ground.- An anatomically shaped inner, resulting in a natural hand position and good 'grip' - especially in the thumb area.- A fully shaped wrist protector.- A heavy elastic strap to keep the hand protector secure on the hand at all times, but not inhibit movement.- A soft pad on the wrist underside area for comfort and better ball control.The Hi Rebound right hand protector:- Very different than other models. - It is designed to meet the needs of goalkeepers who want to play a more upright style and have their right hand and stick in a neutral position enabling powerful accurate clearances to the side, well away from the goal box. - It is a safe, strong and powerful hand protector. Safe because your hand is fully encased in thick foam, strong because of its bonded construction, and powerful because of its very high, but controlled rebound.
