Pros: Nice leather, looks good, terrific padding for the thumb, good structural rigidity.
Cons: Biggest issue is the design (or lack thereof) on the wrist strap. The extra thick welting lies directly on the pinky and ring finger knuckles, so breaking it in thus far has been an AWFUL experience. I've gone so far as to unlace the strap and put it on top, but it hasn't helped at all. The padding on the wrist strap is laughably thin, and there is surprisingly little padding on the palm. Two, relatively simple solutions could fix the wrist strap, either add wool padding to the strap, or expand the cutout so the pinky knuckle is exposed. Sure, you can wear a batting/football glove underneath, but to me, that's not really a solution to a design flaw. If I hadn't already unlaced, conditioned and beat up the glove, I would definitely consider exchanging it for a different design; I just took a chance because I've always favored Wilson gloves and this was a new model, so I took the chance....guess it backfired this time.
