  • Harrow Syncro Hybrid Hockey Glove review

    Tuesday, October 18, 2011

    We gave player / coach Sean Bucher a pair of Syncro Hybrids and told him to put them through their paces. Check out his review below... 

    Like all hockey players I am extremely particular to the gear I use. The specifications have to be dead on for me to perform within the comforts of my game.

    That being said, my experience with player equipment has been a lesson in trying to find a good mix of comfort and protection. I have used gear from numerous manufacturers when playing out (wing, defense) and coaching. I found myself sampling these different equipment manufacturers, particularly with gloves. I tried Eagle, Easton, Bauer, Reebok and Mission, but not one felt as comfortable as the Harrow Syncro-Hybrid.

    Hands are everything in hockey, if the wrists can rotate properly and get the right amount of flex, it makes a world of difference when passing and shooting.

    With all of that in mind, the Syncro-Hybrid is a great glove for the player looking for added flexibility without sacrificing protection. The glove blends traditional hockey protection with lacrosse style flexibility that other manufacturers have yet to spot.

    The glove plays “game-ready” and gave me no issues with break-in time or discomfort on the ice. The first time I used the glove was for five hours of pre-season coaching. As the day progressed, the glove did not feel heavier or become water logged.

    The lining of the glove aired out quickly in-between ice-makes and was not a hassle. It also allowed for a snug fit that was extremely comfortable to wear.

    The leather in the palm is reinforced and mesh lined, allowing for both longevity and comfort. The leather did not (crust-up) like some gloves, creating rotten holes within the palm which make the hand susceptible to blisters or burns.

    Despite the gloves higher wrist, the flex in the cuff allowed for ample wrist rotation while shooting.

    I highly recommend this glove for a few different styles of player. This glove is a great choice for someone who prefers greater wrist coverage without sacrificing flex. If you like the old Gretzky style glove with high cuffs, then you’ll be impressed.

    I would also recommend the glove to someone whom is transitioning from lacrosse to hockey and likes the flex and mobility of a lacrosse glove.

    Overall, if you are tired of dealing with the same old stiff and uncomfortable options by the unimaginative brains that continue to release the same glove with a new graphic every year, then give the Syncro-Hybrid a try. It is easily the most comfortable and protective glove on the market today.

  • Harrow Syncro lacrosse glove rundown - by Chris Fox

    The Syncro glove is the latest and most advanced release yet from an ever expanding glove line from Harrow Sports.

    Harrows focus was on beefing up the glove from its popular Torrent model. The Syncro offers a high impact foam system, a super-light high density foam with plastic inserted into each pad-zone. A triple flex floating cuff maximizes wrist mobility by flexing with the movement of your wrist while constantly providing maximum protection.

    The thumb is extremely flexible. Additional padding along the inside of the thumb, bordering the palm, has been added to protect the thumb against slashes as you follow through on shots and you expose the inside of your thumb to checks.

    The Syncro features a two-layer palm - an inner mesh liner and soft calf skin palm. This duel-layer system reduces wear and tear while providing the comfort and sensation of the stick in your bare hand. No break-in-time necessary!

    The inner-liner, decorate with the Harrow insignia, features sweat-wicking technology that keeps the hand bone dry. The same material keeps the hand cool during the spring and summer and warm during cold Fall Ball practices.

    The Syncro is available in 12" and 13.5" inches. Stock colours are White/Black, White/Navy, and White/Red.

    Setting Harrow apart from its competitors is that the Syncro Glove is fully and completely customizable. With over 9 colour zones, 3 logo zones (logo, number, name or team name), all the way down to the two colours of the "harrow" cuff logos stitching - You name it, you got it!
