Well Exceeded My Expectations by John
  • Overall Rating

Pros: I purchcased this glove for myself. My little sister pitches and needed someone to catch her during practice. When she first started I used my catchers mitt from high school. Needless to say the pocket was no where near big enough. I purchased this glove well knowing that it was intended for female catchers but this glove has large enough finger stalls for a man. Also, the shock wedge for the thumb is the best I've ever used. A lot of the "on the river" pitches I frame usually end up hitting that wedge and I hardly notice how fast my sister throws. This glove is a bit hard to break in. The fresh leather is stiff at first, but when you finally get it broken in its like a light switch! In my experience with many gloves, the best ones are hard to break in. The price could always be lower to a potential buyer, but you get what you pay for.

Cons: This large glove is a great target for any pitcher. With that said, it could be too much glove for younger or begiining catchers.

Akadema is the most exciting baseball and softball company in the world. Akadema's ownership attributes an increasing market share to their innovative quality professional product line in contrast to mass-produced products that have little to do with quality, feel, or design that raise the level of play. Much like in the insect world where the Praying Mantis is known to devour its competition, Akadema's new catcher's mitt will do the same to conventional catcher's mitts. The Akadema patent Praying Mantis is the most innovative catcher's mitt ever to hit the market, with many unique features setting it apart from the competition. With new patent "Stress Wedge" technology, located between the index finger and thumb, the Praying Mantis offers shock absorbing protection for the hand against injury and sting when receiving the ball. The Praying Mantis also offers two additional "Finger Hammocks" allowing the fingers to be firmly positioned and more secure in the glove. Additional features include the Double-sided Slim Padding allowing for increased pocket size and easier ball retention. Uniquely designed shape allows the throwing hand easier access in the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove to hand transfer and faster times to second base. Akadema: Bring Your "A" Game!
