Easton is one of the most reputable baseball and softball companies in the industry. So whenever they do something new, it’s bound to make some noise. We’ve already heard some chatter about their new gloves so we thought we’d lend our expert hand to the conversation. Here’s our take of the 2019 Easton Glove Series.
The Easton Flagship Series of Baseball Gloves is going to incorporate a Diamond Pro Steer Leather Shell and is designed for maximum comfort. It’s a great glove for somebody looking for a luxurious feeling glove without having to break the bank for it. The durability may not be on the level of the elite models, but rest assured that you will comfortably get multiple seasons out of it before the glove begins to breakdown. The Split Grain Leather Welting makes sure of that. Flagship is a new series of gloves so only time will tell how great this line truly can be.
Looking for a game ready glove that is going to fit your younger player? The Easton Paragon Youth Baseball Glove is going be one you keep your eye on. The quality of the leather will be far from elite, however by the time the glove begins to deteriorate, your player will likely have grown out of this model. It makes perfect sense for anyone in the market for a youth glove. Our favorite feature of the Paragon’s is the real Rawhide Laces that serve to reinforced the entire glove and create a professional shape.
The Easton Professional Collection of Baseball Gloves lives up to its’ name in every way. Some of the MLB’s very best utilize these particular gloves. Alex Bregman, Jose Ramirez, and Kevin Pillar are just some of the names of guys that love the Leather Memory Break-In and Premium Reserve USA Steer Hide Leather. All of these models will be rather stiff upon arrival, which will allow for each player to customize the fit exactly to their hand. If you are wanting the best Easton has to offer, this it.
Fastpitch Softball Gloves
The Easton Black Pearl Youth Fastpitch Gloves are an easy choice for any player eager to start using their glove right away. The Game Ready feel will couple with the lock down wrist strap for a custom fit right out of the box. True rawhide lacing runs along the pocket, web, and fingers to stabilize the glove and afford your young player the utmost confidence to snag the next hot shot. Lastly, a Flex Notch system is in place to allow for young players to close the model with ease. Try the Black Pearl out today, plunder the competition tomorrow.
A Diamond Pro Steer Leather Shell makes the Easton Slate Fastpitch Gloves an extremely viable option for someone needing a softball glove for a smaller handed player. The Super Soft Palm Lining feels great and the pocket is reinforced to leave no doubt when ranging for your next highlight play. We’d recommend to allow at least a few games of catch before trusting it in a game, but all-in-all the break-in process should be pretty painless.
Much like the baseball models, the Easton Professional Collection Fastpitch Softball Gloves will be among the best in the fastpitch pitch market. The Premium Reserve USA Steer Hide Leather will remain consistent, and perform at the top level season after season. A Moisture-Wicking Wrist Lining Pad guarantees a cool and dry experience for every player, and we all know how important that can be during the dog days of Summer. Want the best Easton Fastpitch Glove? This is that glove.
Slow Pitch Softball Gloves
The Easton Prime Slow Pitch Softball Gloves are pretty standard models. They’ll certainly get the job done, however you likely will notice a decline after a couple of seasons of use. It is nice to know that you will be getting a Game Ready model here, but the lack of longevity is certainly something to keep in mind. Easton has made a cognisant decision to reinforce the webs on these gloves though, so you should have no worry securing the next fly ball. In conclusion, the Prime models are not elite but would make for a great option if you are looking for a glove to do the job for a season or two.
To wrap things up, we would certainly recommend that you take full advantage of our Glove Coach to help size your player exactly to their liking. We understand the importance of your glove feeling like an extension to your hand and that’s why we are here to help you.
