Does Nokona make a First Base Mitts for a seven year old? What size do you recommend?
All of Nokona's First Base Mitts are adult sized. For a 7 year old, I would probably recommend a youth sized 11.5" First Base Mitt.
My son is 6 and I am looking between the BC1050C Youth and the Alpha Select S100. Between the two, which would you recommend and why? Also, at what age would he likely need to move up to a larger size? Thanks.
We recommend a 9.50" to a 10.00" glove for a six year old player. The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series (BC1050C) runs smaller and would be better for a young player. The Nokona Alpha Select S100 will range in size and could be too large. Typically players will move up to a larger size every two seasons depending on the size of the player.
Hello, both of my boys are left handed and they both played the outfield position. One will turn 10 and the other 7 next year. Is this the glove for them?
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth would be a great choice for your seven year old son. We recommend a slightly large glove for your ten year old such as the Nokona Alpha Select Series: S200.
Which Nokona 10.5" inch youth glove is lighter? My son is 6 yr old. Big for his age and current plays with a 10 inch. Would you recommend this glove? Will it be too heavy?
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth uses walnut leather, for a slightly heavier feel. The Nokona Alpha Select Series: S100 is lighter, and would be a great glove for his age.
I'm twelve and I have a 12 inch Nokona Black Shadow, is this a good glove for me?
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth is going to be a great glove, but if you are using a 12.00" glove now this glove is going to be too small.
I am a pitcher in high school, but I also play some infield. Should I get this glove or a bigger model?
Being the the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth is a youth glove, it is going to have smaller hand stalls that likely will not comfortably fit the hand of a high school player. I would look for a 12.00" glove like the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1200C (AMG1200BCCW).
I have a 5 1/2 year old. Does this glove fit that age group?
Being a 10.5" youth glove, the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C would be a good choice for a player between 6 and 8 years old.
My son is 11 years old and plays infield and outfield on a travel team. What is the best size Nokona suited for both positions and is this glove going to be too heavy for him?
A 12.00" Nokona should be the best size for a utility model. It may seem a little heavy, but if it is too heavy you can always return it at no cost to you.
Is this glove a good size for a small 6 year old who plays shortstop year round?
Typically a six year old would use a 9.50" glove. However, the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth runs small and should work great for a young player.
When you compare the BC1050C to the AMG1100KMT, is the BC built for a smaller hand than the AMG? My wife has a small hand. We have tried other manufacturers' youth gloves, and they still seem too big, especially the finger slots. What are your thoughts on this question? Thank you.
Yes, the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth is made for a smaller hand than the Nokona Buckaroo Series: AMG1100KMT. I would suggest you take a look at our female fastpitch gloves. These gloves are designed with a smaller palm and thinner finger slots to fit a females hand better.
I have used Nokona glove treatment on many gloves, Nokona brand and others, but I am thinking about using straight pharmaceutical anhydrous lanolin instead. What are your thoughts on using pharmaceutical anhydrous lanolin on a Nokona Bloodline mitt? Also, has Nokona discontinued using the maroon Bloodline leather?
Many baseball players use lanolin-based products like shaving cream to help break-in a new glove. Since anhydrous lanolin naturally repels water, it is commonly found in leather and shoe polishes. It may not work as well as Nokona's glove conditioner, but would be safe to use.
My son is turning 9 in January. He is small. 65lbs. Great infielder. I just purchased your buffalo 1050 youth glove but after taking it out of the box it looks smaller than I expected. He plays mostly travel ball. Would you recommend a larger size or should I keep him with this for a couple years then go bigger. Also I have a 1200 walnut glove with a Velcro wrist strap. Is it possible to get that strap on say a 1100 or 1150 glove? I want the lightest glove with that wrist strap. Can I get that?
For a 9 year old utility player, an 11" glove is the most common size. The most popular 11" youth gloves that feature a Velcro strap are: Mizuno Prospect Series: GPL1103, Mizuno Prospect Series: GPP1102, Rawlings Player Preferred Series: PP110BC, and Akadema Rookie Series: AJT99.
Do you have this glove with an open web? My son plays second base and would prefer an open web.
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth glove will only come with the basket web. This is the only youth model Nokona glove we currently have in stock. There is an adult Nokona size 11" with a Modified T Web. Here it is: Nokona Buckaroo Series: AMG1100KMT
Which would you recommend for a small six year old? The Nokona BC1050C Youth or the Nokona AMG1100KMT, will that one work and potentially get more years out of it?
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth would be a better option for a small six year old. A Youth model will have a smaller wrist opening as well as finger stalls. Nokona runs small, so this size should be fine for the player.
Curious about which glove would be better for an above average 8 year old. Loves to stay outside and throw and catch. I've been looking at the Shoeless Joe Joe Junior Series: 1000JR Youth and the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C Youth. If there would be be a better option than I'd like to hear it.
Both are good gloves, but if durability is a key component, the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C would be recommended as it will be more durable than the Shoeless Joe.
My son is left handed...turning 7 in Nov...weighs about 45lbs...49"...what size glove would you recommend?
A 10.5" glove is the most common size for a 7 year old utility player.
Is it possible to get owners name engraved and does this glove come in black leather?
Unfortunately, we do not have the capabilities to customize gloves. The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1050C is only available in the colors shown on the website.
Is this glove to big for a 6 year old? He is about 44 inches tall.
We recommend a 9.50" to a 10.00" bat for a six year old. However, Nokona gloves do run small and should be fine for your son. Keep in mind we offer a 100 day guarantee on our gloves. If you are not completely satisfied you may return it for any reason for a full refund or exchange.
Do you know the weight of this glove (in ounces)?
Unfortunately, glove weight is not considered a key selling point by the manufacturers and this is something that is not measured for.
My son will be 8 in about a month and I am looking to upgrade his glove. He will be playing mainly 3rd base. 10.5 sounds really small. Is this size glove too small for my son?
The average size glove for an 8 year old is 10.5" to 11". A 10.5" glove is a good size for an 8 year old, but if you want more than one year of use, I may recommend moving up to an 11" model.
What all around Nokona glove do you recommend for a 11 year old - the BC1050 youth looks good but for a smaller 7 year old hand and I am afraid he will be out of it and for the money I want it to last.
The BC1050C Youth is too small for an eleven year old. We recommend the Nokona Buffalo Combo Series: BC1150M.
whats the return policy? and how do i get my money back?(check,online credit,ect.)
We have a 100 day return policy on all our gloves. Whether the glove has been broken in or used, if your not satisfied you can return it for a full refund. Just print off the free return label off our website under the customer service tab. Here is the link to the free return label. https://row.ups.com/Ship/DBShip.aspx
My daughter is 6 yrs old. She plays t-ball in a girl's league that uses an 11' softball. Would this glove be too big for her. She has small hands but I feel it would be easier to catch the ball with a bigger glove. She currently has a 10' glove.
If your daughter has been using a 10 inch glove then this Nokona Buffalo Combo Series BC1050C would probably be an okay fit for her. Though this glove may be heavier than most due to the high quality leather that is used.
Hello my 9 yr son plays tourament/league/travel year around, average size kid -- middle infield. I am concerned about the size. He has a Wilson Gold Glove 10 3/4, which i think is too big ,so i assume this would fit great. What do you think? Anyway to measure hand to determine glove size?
Based on his age, we recommend a 11.00" glove. However, if you feel the 10.75" is too big, we suggest going to a 10.50".
My granddaughter will be 8 in July. She plays first and short stop. What glove would you recommend for her?
A 11.50 inch glove would work well for her if she is playing both first base and shortstop. Here is a link to take a look at both a youth model and adult model. Both will be 11.50 inches but the youth model will fit a smaller hand better. http://www.justballgloves.com/compare/
My son is 8. Plays Farm League baseball. Is this glove going to fit him for at least 2-3 years? Would really like to buy him a made in USA glove.
The Nokona Buffalo Combo Series runs a little small. If you want the glove to last a few years, I would go up to a 11.00" to 11.25" glove.
I own 3 Nokona gloves (my wife, daughter and myself) and I'm my wanting to upgrade my son's glove, What size do you recommend? He's 50 inches tall and 12 years old and plays mainly infield.
A 12 year old playing primarily infield would be successful using gloves ranging in the sizes between 11" and 11.50". Here are a couple links to look at for Nokona gloves that would be a good fit for your son. http://www.justballgloves.com/products/size~11.50/?s=nokona http://www.justballgloves.com/product/nokona-buckaroo-series--amg1100kmt/7567/
My son is going to be 7 and is on the larger side for his age. He used a Mizuno prospect series 10.5 last year but I would like to get him a higher quality glove. He will probably be playing infield and some first base. Id like this glove to last a couple years, should I order this glove or go with the 11 inch Nokona ?
This is a high quality glove that will last your son a while. If you want him to be able to grow into this glove and use if for multiple years, I may lean towards the 11 inch model.
My son will turn 9 in March..plays mostly infield although occasional outfield. Plays with a mizuno prospect which I now think is a bit small and I'd like to get him a glove with a shorter break in time as his league starts in a month. He borrowed my Rawlings 11.5 glove today which was a bit large but better. Glove coach says size 11. Is this glove too small for him?
Based on his age we suggest a 11.25. Nokona gloves do run slightly smaller than other brands.
what glove oil do you recommend for Nokona?
We do carry Nokona glove cream. We would recommend using Nokona's glove cream on Nokona's products.
My son has a Rawlings Pro Tapered 11.25.. good glove just maybe a little stiff and big for his small hands as a 9 year old.. mostly concerned about the wieght how does this glove compare to his current Glove in wieght and stiffness?
The Nokona, though I absolutely love this glove, might still be a bit on the heavy side for him. Look into the Rawlings Pro Mesh series, the mesh makes the gloves lighter.
