Pros: it conditions quickly and was ready to go after two nights. My sons response time was improved and gave him a lot more confidence in playing in the infield. He had a Louisville Slugger (Genesis Model) before and this glove quickly became his favorite glove. The inside pocket forms quickly and he was able to close his glove much better. Overall, it is a good glove for a youth player - quality is above par for price point.
Cons: Being a black glove it absorbs the suns rays, he said the glove became hot (he could still use it) and his hand sweats a lot in the heat.
