Pros: Quality leather/lacing. A little stiff but a quality glove should be. Nice deep pocket, well padded with no sting and a comfortable fit for medium/average size hands. Love it and it's not even fully broken in yet. For its price I have not found another that compares. Highly recommend !!! Descent glasses as well.

Cons: None I have found.

Pros: Soft leather feels broken in right away. Easy for my 12 year old to unbox it and immediately catch for his team. I've been an Akadema fan for a long time now.

Cons: May be a pinch too soft for when catching fast pitching. The older the kids get and the faster pitchers they catch, they're gonna want a stiffer pocket but for the next few years, I think this glove will be great.

I just want to know could a 6 or 7 year old use this free glove in coach pitch?
coach sims
The glove is actually not free, but it does come with a free glove bag. This will probably be too big for a 6 or 7 year old to use. A 33.5 inch catchers mitt will be better suited for high school and college age players.
Brett
I am coaching a team of 9 & 10 year olds. What size of catcher's glove is best for them?
coach
For 9 and 10 year olds, I would look at mitts between 31 and 32.5 inches.
Jon
Is this catcher's glove for softball or baseball?
steve
This is a baseball catchers mitt.
Mark
Looking for a glove for an 11 year old boy who will soon be turning 12, what size should he use?
Baseballparent22
This is a great link to help people out to decide what glove that they should be using: http://www.justballgloves.com/glove-coach/
Brett
Is this a good glove for a twelve year old?
LB
It may be just a little too big for a 12 year old. The average size catchers mitt for a 12 year old is around 32 or 32.5 inches. A 33.5 inch mitt is more commonly used by High School or College age players.
Jeff
Would this be a good glove to use for high school with kids throwing in the mid 80's or would you recommend using another glove?
Bigmac
Yes, this would be a good glove for him. It has a nice deep pocket, very easy to break in. We do offer the 100 day guarantee if it doesn't feel right to him.
diamond doll
My grandson is a 16 year old catcher. We got him an Akadema glove for Christmas and turfs. I don't know what size catcher's should have, so please let me know. His turfs are too big, please inform me where I can return for a smaller size. We purchased these items at a baseball tournament in Apopka.
Callie
For a 16 year old, a catcher's mitt around 33.5 inches will be about average. We are JustBallGloves.com. If you purchased it at a tournament you will have to find out what company it was that actually sold it and contact them.
TJ
I just read some of the reviews. It said nice glove for a young catcher. Does that mean I have to purchase another glove and if so, what size?
callie
Not necessarily. This is a 33.5 inch mitt that I know for a fact is used by many High School age catchers. It is a pretty soft catchers mitt and because of that, I have heard from a few players around 12 years old who use this glove. A 33.5 inch mitt like this one is a good size for High School age players.
TJ
Does this glove include an integrated bruise guard?
Tom
No it does not. It does have patented Stress Wedge technology offering shock absorbing protection.
Damon
Is this a softball or baseball catcher's mitt? Pro soft series:app240.
ytb
The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 is a baseball catcher's mitt.
Tyler
I am 15 and a catcher in high school. Do they make this glove in a 34?
j
No. The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 is not produced in a 34" model.
Tyler
Could this be a good glove for a 15 year old sophomore softball catcher?
Melissa
No. The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 is a baseball catcher's mitt. It's pocket will be too small to accommodate a softball.
Tyler
Looking for a "next" catcher's mitt. We have a 10 yr old who has played 2 years on travel teams as a catcher. He is 5'1" and on the tall end for kids of this age. Mitt recommendation? size?
Sgutz
A 32" mitt is average for a 10 or 11 year old. A few great options are the Akadema Prodigy Series: AGC98-12 and Rawlings Gold Glove Gamer Pro Taper Series: GGCMPTG.
Tyler
What size is it?

Would you recommend this glove for a college catcher?

I would recommend the Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt. It has great reviews and uses an upgraded select cowhide leather.
Chad M.
I'm a left handed catcher with an adult 2x hand and our school ace throws about 92 mph. Will this glove have the wrist opening and the padding to last my high school season and still protect my hand?
Dom
The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt is a high quality glove. It has great padding and large enough for a player with large hands.
Kara
Is this a good glove for a 13 year old kid who is turning 14 in November?
Hubert
The Akadema Pro Soft Series (APP240) Catcher's Mitt features a 33.50" pattern and might be a little too much glove for a 13-14 year old. A 13-14 year old is typically using a 32.50" pattern like the Akadema Praying Mantis Series (APM42) Catcher's Mitt.
Jason
Is this mitt available in custom colors?
kb4
We do not have the Akadema Pro Soft Series (APP240) available in custom colors but you may be able to get the glove customized directly through the manufacturer.
Patrick
I am 6' and 180 lbs. Is this a good glove size for me?
Lele25
Ultimately glove size comes down to the players preference and what they are most comfortable with. The Akadema Pro Soft Series (APP240) Catcher's Mitt features a 33.50" pattern and is great for any player looking for a good a little more catching surface.

The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt is for baseball.
Angelique
Would this catcher's mitt be good for a 15 year old?
swrhoads34
The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt would be a great mitt for a 15 year old catcher. The Pro Soft series will help the glove arrive to you in a nearly game ready condition and will minimize the break-in time.
Nick
Recently purchased an Adidas catchers mitt for my 16 year old son; loves the feel of it. Sadly to say, after 2 games it started to show some tearing in the pocket and web. My question, is this glove very similar or equal?
Joebowlertj
It would be tough to compare the Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt to the Adidas glove your son is currently using without knowing what Adidas glove is being used. The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt is a great option for the intermediate player as this mitt will come in with an 80+% factory break-in. If catching pitchers throwing mid-80s+ this mitt might not hold us as long and could give the same issues as the Adidas model currently using.
Cameron
Does the glove have something soft inside the mitt for the back of the hand?
jerry
Yes, this Akadema Pro Soft Series (APP240 Catcher's Mitt) will come with a soft lining on the inside of the glove for the back of the player's hand.
Ben
Is this a Softball Catcher's Mitt or a Baseball Catcher's Mitt? Thanks.
Julian Keys
The Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt is a Baseball Mitt. A similar Catcher's mitt but designed for Fastpitch softball is the Akadema Fastpitch Series: AEA65-12 Catcher's Mitt and that is a 34.00 inch web pattern.
Dan
Pictures of the glove appear to have two color options. However there is no choice when placing in the cart. What color will be shipped?

This Akadema Pro Soft Series: APP240 Catcher's Mitt will only feature one colorway design. The mitt will feature a brown/tan colorway design.
