So it's your glove arm that you are getting stingers in?
Whats your stance like? I was always taught to keep my glove high. Its easier to keep it there for a high shot, and there's less area to cover when you drop it down for a low shot...
As opposed to keeping it low and traveling all that distance up to catch a high shot. It takes a lot more response to raise it, than to drop it.
If your catching a lot of stingers in shoulder bicep area, this may be a reason.
Your glove position should change with the distance of the player, and you may be in the wrong type(mobile) of chest protector for the style you are playing right now(blocking). But that's a whole nother discussion.
This may help you with some of the stinger issues. Thoughts?
