Average Customer Review
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.
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
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.

My 8 year old son has small hands. Would the "narrowed finger stalls" on this glove be more snug than the Akadema AJT99, Vinci BRV1953 or Rawlings P1153? He's using a Mizuno GPP1076 right now.
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AZR95-12) will be more snug than the AJT99m BRV1953, P1153, and the GPP1076. It is ideal for a player with smaller hands.
Could or should this glove be steamed? If so, is that a service that we can purchase through you?
We do not offer steaming services, nor do we recommend steaming the Akadema Prodigy Series: (AZR95-12) Youth glove or any other glove for that matter. Steaming a glove can cause damage to the leather that can greatly reduce the durability of the product. Traditional break-in methods are all that we recommend for the break-in process. The break-in period for this youth Akadema Prodigy should be extremely short.
I have a 7 yr old. Currently plays mostly outfield, but will play infield as well. He is currently using the Mizuno Prospect Series: GPP1076 Youth. It seems to have a good pocket, he catches the ball well with it. It has been a good glove, but looking for an upgrade it quality and durability. Does the AZR95-12 glove have a large deep pocket for catching? How would it compare with the Mizuno Prospect?
The Akadema Prodigy Series: AZR95-12 Youth has a good size pocket. It uses a higher quality of leather than the Mizuno Prospect Series and is more durable.
