Comments about Akadema APM-41 Precision Kip Series 33.0 Inch Baseball Catcher's Mitt:
This product is a bit hard to break in, but that is not such a bad thing. Soft-out-of-box gloves tend to fall apart faster! I used a Mizuno Power Close that was really soft to start, but seemed to just fall apart all at once just 1 1/2 years later! I decided to try a different style and came across the Akadema brand. The construction feels classic, but it preforms unlike any other! The design seems to make the mitt a person in its own as it seems to catch the ball for you! Truth is Akadema is always worth a first look... and a serious concideration.
** you may not like this glove if: -you have large hands!
I am in High School and i have realitivly small hands for my age...
8 inches from left to right (span width) 7.5 inches from bend of the wrist to tip of middle finger
my hand fits nicely with room to grow but if you have a much larger hand (thicker fingers) consider a larger 34!
Feels true to size
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
