Comments about Akadema ANF-71 Fast Pitch Series 12.5 Inch Fast Pitch Softball First Base Mitt:

After having issues with a fielder's glove that I purchased for my daughter 6 years ago, I'd contacted Akadema to let them know the FAKE leather used on the back side of the glove was worn with threads under the vinyl showing after just one month. They responded that this was normal wear. I threw the glove away and bought a glove made of real leather for significantly less money.

Nonetheless, I decided to take a chance on this first base mitt for my youngest. What a mistake. Poor quality materials and lousy response from the company. Stay away from Akadema products - they are all show and no go!

Comments about Akadema ANF-71 Fast Pitch Series 12.5 Inch Fast Pitch Softball First Base Mitt:

Durability concern possibly due to easier break-in of leather. While Akadema customer service is great,they have had to already had to replace one last year after only 10 games (no practices) due to the flat, fingers side of the mitt folding over on throws. At 1B, that isn't good for scoops, digs, etc. The replacement has 8 games on it and is doing the exact same thing. My HS 1B glove which is 26 years old still is holding up better than this newer glove.

    This glove took a minimum amount of effort to break in. It could use a tad more padding on the index finger, but overall a really nice glove.
