Pros: Hands down the best FP catchers mitt I've ever used, as a player or coach. - Highest quality materials used in ALL parts of the mitt. - Best design (padding where it should be, not where it shouldn't). Designed as a FP catcher's mitt should be... more like a 1b mitt with a little padding, with emphasis on light weight and flexibility. - Super light weight. - Far lower price point than other high end mitts (Nokona, Wilson, Mizuno). I've used Mizuno, Rawlings, Nokona, Akadema, Worth, TPS, and Barraza Pro in the past. This mitt blows them all away in every category: Design, Quality of Materials, Weight, Bang for your Buck.
