Brian's OPTiK Senior Catcher

The Brian’s OPT1K series has raised the bar for goalie equipment, across the board. Unifying innovation and craftsmanship, Brian’s has created a series that can cater to any type of goalie.
The most noticeable feature of the OPT1K trapper is the BOA System. The BOA System uses a dial and steel wiring to tune-fit a piece of equipment more precisely and with ease. The wrist strap is moved down on the blocker to be positioned on the heel of the palm, rather than the wrist. This allows for better wrist mobility.
The OPT1K trapper features the SubZero Pro 3 cuff and the G-NETik Pro 3 thumb; the cuff is angled inward for better rebound control, and the thumb design directs pucks into the pocket. The glove dimensions are altered to add length to the fingers, which allows the glove to seal entirely when closed. Furthermore, the additional leverage at the fingers makes it a very easy close.
No-Slip Grip is used as the internal liner, as well as X-Static Microbial material.
The Brian’s OPT1K trapper is the product of innovative thinking and excellent craftmanship. From the chassis to the looks, you can find the OPT1K that works best for you! Make sure to read our Brian’s OPT1K blocker and trapper review to learn even more.

Sizing Information

Goalie Catch Gloves Sizing

More times than not, trappers are often overlooked compared to other pieces of gear where fit is concerned. Perhaps this is a result of the limited sizes available compared to other pieces of equipment: youth, junior, intermediate and senior. The first step to finding the correct trapper is to approximate your size by following the estimated age range and “heel-of-palm-to-tip-of-middle-finger” measurement:

  • Youth (age 5 – 8): 4.5” – 5.75” / 119 – 143 mm
  • Junior (age 8 – 11): 6.35” – 5.75” / 144 – 160 mm
  • Intermediate (age 11 – 13): 6.35” – 7” / 161 – 178 mm
  • Senior (age 14 and up): 7” – 8.5”* / 179 – 216 mm
  • *8” – 8.5” would constitute an XL palm on a senior trapper

Once a size has been estimated it is important to ensure that the palm lines up properly within the catching glove so that it can be closed without excessive force. Obviously new gloves will be difficult to close initially, but through either using it repeatedly or baking it with our in-house convection skate ovens they will soften up and allow the goaltender to easily close. We do not recommend using any conventional in-home ovens, as the results have been very unpredictable in the past.


After you’ve checked the palm, the second thing to look for is that the wrist strap goes directly across your wrist bone and has little to no interference with the chest/arm. The catch glove should be able to twist and maneuver in a multitude of save selections in addition to being able to grip the stick when puck handling, all the while keeping the hand in the correct position within the trapper.


For growing goaltenders, it is still best to stick within these guidelines rather than moving up to the next size to accommodate growth. Large gloves are going to inhibit the goalie’s control and inhibit development. It should be noted that as a result of the limited size selection, goalies wouldn’t jump sizes as quickly as other pieces of gear.
