Pros: FAST break in! Couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 'pen sessions and it was game ready. Glove it really light for being so big, and really flexible for having top quality parts. Heel hinge is MASSIVELY wide and helps keep the pocket nice and deep without flattening out. Finally, glove has a nice LONG nose for digging balls out of the dirt.
Cons: Webbing is a really wide basket weave- so it doesn't bend or fold very well- glove sort of breaks in 'around' it. Wrist strap is very wide and cinches on the back of the hand rather than off to the side like other 3000 mitts. Index finger guard is long, and gets in the way if you choose not to use it. Finally, lacing seems pretty thin for a glove that's destined to be dragged through the dirt- not the same lace as other 3000 mitts, but they do the job...for now.
