Description

Akadema ProSoft Select Series 33.5" Baseball Catcher's Mitt: ASF440

Go after one of the most advanced catcher's mitts available when you settle in with this ProSoft Select!

Mitt Benefits

If it is your hope to find a high-quality mitt that won’t be a burden to get broken in, then you’re looking at the right model! This ProSoft will be made with the ProSoft Select leather that is light and playable right out of the box. As well, this leather will also be able to hold up to the demands of a summer, a high school or even a collegiate season.

This mitt gets special treatment from Akadema as it has their Praying Mantis technology. That tech allows for a uniquely designed mitt that allows the hand to be securely positioned within the mitt. This positioning should allow the hand to squeeze easily around the baseball and prevent it from rebounding back out of the mitt. As well, the mitt has the Stress Wedge pad as a part of the Praying Mantis design. This Stress Wedge pad goes between the index finger and the thumb to prevent sting and injuries that can occur from consistently catching a baseball in that region of the mitt.

Warranty

Akadema extends a nine (9) month manufacturer’s warranty on this mitt! If you purchase this mitt from JustGloves and experience a warranty issue on it within 9 months from when you bought it, please let our JustGloves Glove Experts know about the situation. They will be able to get you the directions for reaching out to Akadema so that you can get in contact with them to begin the warranty replacement process.

Not game ready: break in a must Charles Parent

Pros: Solid materials, thick laces, looks to be durable. Doesn’t hurt when catching.

Cons: It’s hard as a rock. It’s a catchers mitt so lots of leather and lots of break in time. Almost no info online. Just realize nobody is probably using the same glove on your team and no info on break in

Light weight, durable with easy break in. Texas Man Parent

Pros: Glove will be game ready after 2 or 3 hours of breakin. Model holds ball well. Average size to smaller adult hand fits well. Leather is an 8 out of 10 grade wise. Good build quality, laces etc should hold up well. Perfect gamer for 10 to 14U catchers, part-time 15U and up catchers, and parents and coaches catching their kids' bullpen. Full-time catchers 15U and up should look to Akadema's Torino or Precision lines for a pro-grade lifetime mitt with Akadema's best leather and materials.

Cons: None as glove is fairly priced for the build quality and good materials used in construction.

About the Brand

In Akadema's short but remarkable history it has become one of America's hottest baseball and softball equipment company for professional, college, high school, and serious youth players. The Akadema phenomenon started with the Professional Glove Series and continues with the Reptilian®, Praying Mantis®, Pro Soft™ and Prodigy™ Glove Series as well as the Amish Wood™, Tacktion™ and Xtension® Aluminum Bat Series. Akadema's ownership attributes increasing market share to their innovative professional baseball and softball product line in contrast to mass-produced products that have little to do with quality, feel, or design to raise the level of play.

Akadema's products are manufactured for professional players but are now accessible to semi pro, college, high school, and serious youth players. Akadema products are still designed with the professional player in mind but competitively priced for the professional player at heart. So it's your turn to think like a professional, play like a professional, and use Akadema Professional!

Akadema now has both baseball and fastpitch softball advisory staffs that they work with closely to implement new ideas. Members of the baseball advisory staff include Hall of Famers Ozzie Smith and Gary Carter as well as Howard Johnson, Reggie Smith, Luis Polonia, Sandy Martinez and many others. Fastpitch stars that are on the advisory staff include Crystl Bustos and Julie Smith. The input on performance from the advisory staff gives Akadema something they cannot put a price on. Their advisors don’t talk about marketing or places to sell the gloves, they just care about performance.
