When it comes to the Maverik base , basically Maverik increased the stopping ability near the topside hand. The deep wide scoop at the base was designed by the best goalie in the world. Ergonomic throat keeps the hand high for the quickest movement to the ball. Used by Team USA superstars... pretty much says it all.

I have had this for my entire spring season and it really is the best of every goalie head. It has the back bend of the eclipse with the durability of a nemesis. I liked it so much I bought another. The surface area is gigantic! Other goalie heads look pinched compared to it. Good weight to it as well. This and the eclipse are the best heads!!!!!!

yes. i have had this for a while now. it's amazing!! it is stiffer than the eclipse and just all around better than any other head out there. i know from experience. anyone who says otherwise probably havnt even been near one because theyre a die hard eclipse user.

Nemesis type is a Higher release (11 o'clock) and the Eclipse is a Lower release like 10 o'clock
With the backwards bend like Eclipse you need to release the ball lower. Shorter Goalies would be better with the Nemesis or Eraser due to the higher release point.
| - BidTimeLax 2/27/12 reply|
You are either a forward bend (Nemesis, Eraser) or a back bend (eclipse, Base) preferred goalie.
I personally like the Nemesis or Eraser - much less effort in picking up ground balls and more accurate.
It comes down to the preferred release point - Nemesis type is a lower release (10 o'clock) and the Eclipse is a high release like 11:30
No comparison with GB though a faster scoop with Eraser and Nemesis.

This Head is very nice. I use it on a Gait ice and thats a very light combo. The only thing that was annoying was with the stringing. It took a while to break in nicely since the head is so wide.

This head is amazing! I was skeptical when i ordrd it but its awesome! It strings great and has great accuracy. I reccomend it with the easton scandium plus it is an unreal combo!

this head does look hideous but it is pretty awesome. it may just be me but when i put it on my gait 803 it felt lighter than my eclipse on the 803. get 20d mesh with it it's amazing with 20d

love this head don't b fooled by its awkward look its really lite and has a big area to stop shots
| - smrlax40 11/01/11 reply|
terrible, had it for a week and i can already bend the head backwards almost all the way, stick with the eclipse.
| - jrdtdd558877 11/24/11 reply|
not really i just think your one of those die hard eclipse fans that whenever something possibly better than the eclipse comes along you have to bash it

It may look funky, but it seems like it would perform nicely.
