Average Customer Review
I bought last year's version of this glove for my 9 yo with the velcro wrist. If this glove is anything even close to the quality of that glove (which I expect it is) then this is a great glove. Akadema has to have the best youth gloves. They're light and durable. My son loves it
This is a great glove. I bought this for my son to play on his 9U team. It took a little bit to break in, but now that it is nothing gets by him. As soon as I took it out of the box, I could tell that it was a high quality glove. It is also a sharp looking. I am now a fan of Akadema. So much so that I picked up a glove for myself.
No cons to speak of. I don't see an extended break in time as a con. It just speaks to this gloves high quality.
Wow! When I finally received the glove I was blown away by the quality of the leather, especially in a youth glove. It's so hard to find an adult quality glove that is made for youth hands. It is similar or slightly better than my Mizuno infield glove. I handed it to my son and he loved the fit, feel, and weight (he's 9, 4' 3"). We immediately went to play catch and he loved the protection it gave him on the hard throws, especially on off center catches. Mizuno has never let me down, which is why I usually go with Mizuno, but they don't have a glove of this quality thick (& light) leather for young players on the smaller size.
None, but Akadema should consider making this size glove in the Reptilian style, since middle infielders prefer 11" gloves.

How much does the AZR95-12 youth glove weigh in ounces? Thanks!
Akadema does not provide the weight of their gloves. The Akadema Prodigy Series: AZR95-12 is very lightweight and durable.
I have a 7 yr old, average size (4'1") playing infield and outfield in a recreation league currently. He plays competitive in the Fall. I have him in an 11.00" now and he catches the ball with confidence, but he doesn't seem to have much feel and can't close it real well. I'm looking for a quality glove that will take him through another 2 years. I'm new to baseball so I'm unsure as to what to get him. The glove coach says 10.50" but he doesn't catch nearly as well with that size.
The Akadema Prodigy Series: AZR95-12 Youth is an excellent choice for him. It has a smaller hand opening, designed for a young player. It will be easy to open and close.
How do i know it will fit my kid?
