Pros: It breaks in very nicely. With a small amount from a tube of the Nokona glove conditioner. I really love the feel of this leather. Its great in a game and you can tell it will last for a very long time.
Cons: The website says it comes almost game ready. This is SO far from the truth. When the glove arrived it was so stiff I could not even close it. I spent 4 hours breaking it in by hand the first day I got it. I worked on it for an hour a day for the next 4 days. Then I started to apply the glove conditioner to it and it really helped. This glove was DEFINITELY not game ready.
