add_circle_outlinePros: I love this mitt. . . best available on the market!
remove_circle_outlineCons: Wears out fast. . .I've been catching for almost 10 years and I know how to take care of my mitt, lasts a goos season and a half; about 80 games or so of college ball and all of the offseason.
add_circle_outlinePros: Best Glove on the market for serious high school players and chosen by most college players as well. Great control and pocket padding. Take care of it and you have a great glove.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Need to keep the back tied up real well. Unless you want a floppy pocket.
add_circle_outlinePros: After putting this glove through the glove steamer I used it the next day in a game. Has the great "pop" sound that gives your pitcher confidence and impresses people around watching you. Such a great glove currently used by 15 major leaguers.
add_circle_outlinePros: This mitt is perfect! I was trying to get a pro preferred but my coach told me how good was this mitt, he said it was the best on the market. I wasen't disappointed when I received it. It is a lot lighter than my old Louisville. I didn't like the velcro strap a the beggining, but now I love it. I almost sleep with it. All star is the best catching mitt you can have.
add_circle_outlinePros: This glove is probably the best catchers mitt I've ever used. The only competitor it has i think is the mizuno pro limited. This glove is less expensive than the mizuno and much lighter. i think it looks nicer and has a better pop to it.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Expensive. a little hard to box the glove. other than that best catcher mitt ive ever used
add_circle_outlinePros: This glove is extremely light and a perfect size if you are looking for something that's just a little smaller than your average catchers mitt. Breaks in realativly quick with a great pocket and padding
remove_circle_outlineCons: The thumb loop is a little on the big side even when fully tightened
add_circle_outlinePros: Probably the best high end glove i could get for my 10 yr old, without buying a custom built glove. Found it used on here and took a chance. Hit a honerun glove is in great shape and is about 75% broke in. Probably would have taken 2 months to get it this broke in on our own.
Which one is considered the true pro glove? Is it the 33.5 or the 32.0?
This 32" model will be All Star's Pro Elite Series. It will be made with a high quality leather. As far as which is the "true pro glove" it all depends on who the "pro" is. This glove definitely has the traits and qualities of a high end professional glove, but it can be used by average high schoolers or college athletes looking for a great mitt.
Would you recommend the cm3000xsbt (32") or the Cm3000sbt (33.5") for a 13 year old advanced/experienced catcher very average size for his age?
A 32 inch catchers mitt is a more common size for 13 and 14 year olds. A 33.5 inch would be better suited for older High School and College age players.
The website indicates a 32" glove for my ten year old and on up to a 13/14 year old. Will I be able to get 3-4 years out of this glove and still be able to hand it down to another kid in say 4-5 years?
All Star is known for producing high quality catchers mitts with great durability. It depends on how frequently it is used, and I can't guarantee it will last 8 or more years, but I've seen it happed before.
Have a son just turning 12 who is smaller in stature but has been catching for 3 years now. Want to know if 32" model is appropriate size or would a youth model be more appropriate?
Let's GO BUCS!
At 12 years old (and if he's a little smaller in stature) he's probably on the brink between a youth mitt and adult mitt. If you want a mitt that will last him more than one season, I would stay away from any youth mitts. A 32 inch mitt should work well for him and is most common for 12 year olds. Even if he's a little smaller he shouldn't have a problem with a 32 inch mitt and it will probably give him some room to grow into as well.
Which glove will last longer, the All Star or the A2000 SuperSkin?
Both All Stars and A2000 Superskins are durable gloves that will last a long time and hold their shapes well.
I'm 14 years old and about 5'11" and very advanced (already committed to Texas). Should I buy this glove? I catch pitchers who throw 85-97ish. Also, could this glove be compared to the Rawlings Heart of the Hide?
This glove would work great for that level of play. Keep in mind with our website, we do offer 100 day guarantee on all our gloves. That means even if you use it, oil it, to see if it is what you are needing. The Heart of the Hide is an excellent glove also, might take a little more to break in.
Is the Pro Preferred or All Star CM3000 mitt better for an extremely advanced 12 year old?
Both are going to be great choices for a 12 year old, you really cant go wrong with either
I'm 14, about to turn 15, and am a very good ballplayer with a high baseball IQ. Right now I'm using a Wilson A2000 Pudge A2403 32.5 inch catchers mitt. I'm considering buying this one in the summer. The 32.5 fits perfectly. Would getting this glove a 32.0 inch glove make that much of a difference? Should I buy a 33.5 inch instead? I'm 5'11"
Choosing a 32.00 you shouldn't feel that much of a difference. In an effort to help customer get the correct glove, you may want to order both a 32.00 and a 33.5, try both of those on and just simply return the other for a full refund. All of our new gloves come with a 100 day guarantee.
What is the differences between the Pro Elite and the Louisville slugger Omaha flare? I am an advanced 12 year old player playing intermediate and Babe Ruth. (5' 2", 95 lbs, big hands).
The All Star Pro Elite Series has significantly higher quality leather and durability compared to the Louisville Slugger Omaha Flare.
I'm 15, and I currently play for my high school. I have tried the A2000 32.50 inch catchers glove, and it was great, but they don't have a 32.50 in All Star Pro Elite. What would be a good substitution?
The Nokona Bloodline Black Series: BLF3250CBLK Fastpitch Catcher's Mitt is a top of the line glove just like the All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt. This is going to be your best substitution.
I have I Mizuno Prospect that is a 32.50. Is it much of a difference from this 32?
A 32" mitt will measure .5" less in circumference than a 32.5" mitt.
Are the CM3000XSBT and the CM3000SBT made from the same materials and about the same weight?
Both the All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT and the All Star Pro Series CM30000SBT are made from Japanese tanned steer hide. The CM3000SBT has a 33.50" circumference, so it is going to be slightly heavier than the 32.00" CM3000XSBT.
Would this mitt be suitable for a 13u baseball player who plays travel ball?
Yes. The All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT is a high quality mitt and a good size for a 13 year old.
Should I use a 32 or 33.5 inch mitt? I'm 15 and catch kids that throw 80-85 miles per hour.
Both sizes would be common options. The preference on size varies from player to player. Some catchers like a smaller target to help their transition time to their throwing hand and make it lightweight while others like a bigger target for the pitcher to throw to. The 32 inch would be a bit smaller but would still work.
I am 14 playing middle school ball. Is this a good catchers mitt for me?
The All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT) Catcher's Mitt is a 32", which is ideal for you based on your age and position. The Japanese tanned steer hide in the construction of this glove makes for a very durable and high performing model. It would be a great choice for you.
I'm 17 and playing for multiple leagues. I am in need of a backup glove. I can't decide between the A2K, Pro Preferred, or the Primo Series. Also, which size would work best? I play about 120 games a year.
The 32" size on the All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt) could be slightly small for a 17-18 year old catcher. I see more players at that age using a 33.50" All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000SBT Catcher's Mitt). The Rawlings Primo Series is a much heavier type of Italian leather. It will take a very long time to break-in. The Pro Preferred will break-in more quickly compared to the Primo and All Star mitts. It will feel softer also. All three mitts would be excellent choices!
I am 19 and play college baseball. I have been using the 32", but I might want to change over to 33.5". I am 5'8" 173 lbs. What size should I use?
It really comes down to personal preference for the player. However, most players your age are using a 33.50" or a 34" catchers mitt. The 32" pattern on the All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT) Catcher's Mitt does provide quicker transfer times.
Is this the size and model Salvador Perez uses?
The All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT) Catcher's Mitt has a 32" pattern and is the same model that Salvador Perez uses.
I currently have the 33.5 inch version of this glove and it is loose on my hand. Would the 32 inch help that problem?
The inside of the All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT) will fit the same as the 33.5 inch All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000SBT). The pocket size does not affect the way the inside of the mitt will fit.
What mitt size do you recommend for me to use? I can't choose between a 32"(cm3000xsbt) or a 33.5"(cm3000sbt) All Star catchers mitt. I am 5'8", 123 lb, and I've recently turned 13 years old.
We would recommend the 32" All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT) for a player with your age and build.
Which size should I get? I just turned 13 and I am 5'5" and 153 lbs. What would you recommend?
Based on your age, we suggest a 32" model. The All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt would be the best option for you.
Is 32 or a 33.5 good size for a freshman in high school (I don't like deep pockets)?
We would actually suggest getting a catcher's mitt in either a 32.50 inch or 33.00 inch pattern. The All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt features a 32.00 inch pattern and you may find that this mitt may be a little small.
What catcher's mitt do you recommend for a freshman in high school that doesn't like deep pockets?
If your player is a freshman in high school and is wanting something that won't feel huge in the pocket, I would recommend going with a glove that has a 32.00" or 32.50" circumference. This All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt) has a 32.00" circumference and should be an excellent model to try out. We have a 100 day guarantee on all gloves and you would actually have 100 days from the purchase date to try out this glove (games and practice included) and decide if this mitt is the one for you or not.
I am a freshman in high school, and I am 5'8" and 140 lbs. Is this a good size or mitt for me?
Glove size ultimately comes down to personal preference, but the 32" size on the All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt is an excellent size for you.
What is the difference between the CM3000XSBT and the CM3000SBT?
The All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt is a 32.00" mitt while the All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000SBT Catcher's Mitt is a 33.50" mitt.
I'm 13 years old should I get this glove size? Should I oil and condition this glove with a toothbrush and Nokona glove conditioner?
The All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT) Catcher's Mitt would be a great option for you. Here is a good video on how to break in a glove - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEYKRT1SuRU&t=2s
I am 13 years old. Would the CM3000SBT be too big for me or would this glove be too small? Should I get this CM3000XSBT instead?
Jackson t swager
At 13 years old, this All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt) will probably have the best 32.00" circumference for you at your current age. However, if you want something into which you can grow as you get older, the CM3000SBT may be the better option with a 33.5" circumference. I would note that here at JustBallGloves, we do have a 100 day guarantee on all our gloves that allows customers to purchase a glove and use it, then if within 100 days of the purchase they decide that the glove is not to their liking they can send it back to us for a full refund or exchange. Ultimately you would risk no money if you wanted to try out either of the mitts being considered!
My son plays on a 10u majors traveling team. He is about 4'9". Would you recommend the CM3000XSBT for his age group? We are looking for a high quality catchers mitt that after breaking in, it will last him several years.
This All Star glove would be an excellent option if you need a high quality mitt that will last awhile. All Star is a premier product for catcher's mitts. It will certainly take time to break it in since it is made of the highest quality leather, but once you do it should be excellent. Keep in mind this glove is designed as an adult model, so the wrist opening and finger stalls might be slightly large depending on his hand size.
Is the CM3000XSBT a 32"?
Yes, the All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt features a 32" pattern.
Will this glove work for an 11 year old girl on a travel ball team?
This All Star Pro Elite Series (CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt) will not work for an 11 year old female player as it is meant to fit more of an adult male hand. For an 11 year old female player, I might suggest looking at fastpitch catcher's mitt with a circumference around 32.5" and 33.0". A suggestion I would make is the following: All Star Vela Dual-Pro Series (CMW4000 Fastpitch Catcher's Mitt). That mitt will have a 33.0" circumference and take a while to break-in, but I think you guys will enjoy the mitt once it is game-ready.
Will this have a good pocket?
The All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt has a great pocket. The Extended Pocket with Profiled Toe Makes Scooping Easier as well.
My son is 10 and catches 12 plus year old kids, the glove he has been using hurts his hand. Do you think the All Star Pro Elite CM3000XSBT would be too big for him? He uses a Mizuno Prospect GXC 105.
The All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt is a 32 inch model and could work well for a 10 year old from a size standpoint but the fit on the wrist may not work as this mitt is designed more for a pre-teenage/adult player. The way this mitt is constructed would serve a player well who has to catch 12 year old players who throw harder and thus it would ultimately come down to the individual player and how the mitt fits their hand.
29 years of age from England so knowledge isn't great. Looking to get my first catchers mitt however I am unsure whether this size (32") would be too small? Making it hard over here as there are zero baseball shops for me to even try anything, help is appreciated.
If you're a pretty experienced catcher, the 32" size of the All Star Pro Elite Series: CM3000XSBT Catcher's Mitt could work for you. However, if you don't consider yourself an experienced or elite level catcher, I would look at something a bit larger, usually 33" or more. If this is the case, I would check out the All Star Pro Elite Series Baseball Catcher's Mitt: CM3000SBT.
