Obo – Right Glove Review

Episode 18 Right Glove Saves

The ROBO Hi Control “tube” is loved by many goalies around the World. It gives you total freedom of movement of the wrist by having an open back making rebounds more accurate, comfortable to wear and extremely easy to use.

I have always played with the Hi Control style and feel it is the most effective. The main part of the glove is where your hand is and that’s how hand eye coordination works. I also find the Hi Control much better for stick saves on the ground and diving. It allows me to move the stick around in my hand, which is crucial for me when diving and especially in one on ones.

The Hi Control Right Hand Protector allows more control of saves when using the ‘punching’ action. Generally the ball will go wide or over the goal not back across the body like the other styles of gloves.

My Hot Tip: Sometimes this glove can feel a little loose so I like to keep the glove nice and tight by adding a little bit of tape around the saving face and the front ‘nose’.

    Thanks for the review Rachael. Your comments ring equally true at a club-player level – particularly around stick work on the ground. I tried the OBO Hi-rebound right glove for a season but found it too restrictive for diving and ground play – as you say, for players like me where that’s a big part of the game, the Hi-Control is a much better fit
