Rawlings Pro Preferred Series: PROSFMMO First Base Mitt
Average Customer Review
This is a really nice glove. I am left handed. I am switching to this from a Pro Preferred Prossc21 which has 2 break points in the heal, which was not best for the way i catch. I have always been more comfortable with the 1 break point, and this glove is no exception. It is a big glove but that just makes it easier to catch with because of how light weight the glove is. Literally it feels like it could be a middle infield glove weight wise. the single post web is also nice and stretches out to form a good pocket. the index finger pad is kind of awkwardly positioned for my hand, but it still gets the job done. Overall just a very good solid glove that i will be using for my last 3 seasons of college baseball.
Not a huge fan of the white stitching but it still looks okay. I like the mocha color, and the cream colored "Rawlings" and "The Gold Glove Co" look really nice with the mocha. As far as break in goes it will take a while like all pro preferred gloves do. With regular use, you should be able to squeeze the glove comfortable within a few weeks of use, but the leather in the pocket and web will not be completely worked in and broken in for months depending on how much you use it.
My PROSSC21B 12.5" mitt wore out (after five years of HEAVY use) and when I went to replace it, I found that it was discontinued. This is a perfect step up in a replacement glove. It is a little bit bigger mitt cut from a very similar pattern with the same single-post web. This makes it easy to transfer all the "feel" and technique I had built up with the earlier glove for scoops and rakes.
None so far. It is breaking in well.
This glove is incredible - the design and workmanship are nearly flawless. One usually only sees leather of this quality in the passenger compartment of a Jaguar. The stitching is uniform and straight. Even small details aren't overlooked. The lower edge of the thumb loop is rolled over and stitched, so that it provides a smooth surface for your thumb to glide over as you put the glove on. Awesome. I am just beginning to break the glove in and it looks like it may take a while, but with a glove of this caliber, slow and steady wins the race. I look forward to using this glove for a long time.
None, except the glove is so good looking out of the box, you may want to just put it on a shelf and admire it for the work of art that it is.
