Any Right Handed Catch Goalies out there?

Whats up guys? I just bought a SR. RBK 7k goal catch. Red/White/Black. The only problem is I bought a full right instead of a regular. I am not gonna try to change my style of play at my age to accomodate a full right. It hasn't even touched human skin yet...infact i dont even have it in my possession yet. If anybody is looking for a new catch shoot me a PM.

Why not just return it?

I found that I prefer a right handed catcher but it was such a pain to find replacement sticks on short notice that I switched to a left handed catcher. It didn't hurt my game, though. I am equally bad from both sides.

i primarily play center and defense but ive always liked playing goalie..ive got pads and everything

as a kid i would catch left handed cause i hadnt seen many right handers but then i realized it was hard to shoot the puck to my teammates right handed with my glove on my left hand..thats when i switched and i got better

Because i would have to pay up for the return on shipping too and it takes over a month for them to recredit my account. it sucks b/c i paid up to have it delivered to me faster b/c my season starts in 3 weeks so i needed time to break it in and get comfortable with it.

I just bought an ITECH X-Wing Sr. pro series. Awesome catch by the way. not as big as the RBK 7k but a more comfortable fit.
