This Nokona Pro Line Series is made from Premium Buckskin Leather and Sandstone Tanned Leather. Buckskin is a pre-oiled cowhide leather featuring a smooth dark brown finish. It is a staple in a long line of soft, yet durable premium top grain leathers, which provides that supple, broken-in feel that is enjoyed by today's players. The Buckskin is oil injected during the tanning process, this in turn produces a more flexible glove but a heavier weight. The Sandstone Leather is on the back of the glove. This leather is much stronger than most steer hides and therefore provides stability in the gloves. The Pro Line Series gloves offer an open back with shearling for a great look and an excellent feel. Nokona offers radius welting for unmatched durability on their Pro Line Series gloves. Nokona gives this glove a contemporary styling to give it the best look. This glove comes in a 11.50 inch model. It also has a Modified T web. Nokona has always had the reputation of producing top of the line, durable and dependable gloves and the Pro Line Series is no different. This glove was hand made in the USA in Nocona, Texas. Nokona: American Made for American Played! Free Shipping.

Pros: This glove is magical. I have used rawlings since I was a boy. I still remember getting my first HOH Pro 3 when back in 1980. I now have four other fairly new Rawlings HOH gloves. This Nokona compares very favorably with my HOH gloves. It is stiff, fairly light and just feels good on the hand. I really like the way Nokona gloves "hinge" completely on the pinky side fo the palm. The HOHs kind of also hinge a little on the thumb side of the palm. I like the Nokona better for that reason. It also breaks in fairly quick. Get a nokona mallet...makes break in no time. This is my third nokona..I like it the best of the three (I also have the AMG 1150 W-CW and the AMG 1200 W-CW)

Cons: None yet

Pros: One of Nokona's best, and that's saying something. Breaks in without oil by playing catch, a lot of catch. The glove forms to the player's hand, making it possible to develop a nice deep pocket. Great for all infield positions.

Cons: you may not get it back if you lend it out.

Pros: I love this glove. I,ve owned my last Rawlings for 30 years and I have replaced it with this glove. It's like a baseball vacuum. Use the Nokona Classic Glove Conditioner it works great.

Cons: It felt overly stiff out of the box but is breaking in really quick.

Overall Rating

Pros: This glove is fantastic! I only needed about 2 weeks of playing catch, putting it under my matress, and using a mallet to break it in. The leather feels so good when you are using it and the pocket forms naturally to your hand. The pocket makes catching easy and feel almost weightless. also, the fingers are far more flexible and a better size than the A2000 nd other high-end gloves! not to mention Nokona's last a long time if you take care of them corectly. I've used other gloves such as the a2000, Rawlings and a mizuno but they just don't compare. Also, the price is actually pretty good considering i've seen A2000 and some Pro rawlings around the 200 to 200 mark.

Cons: Nothing, just dont use a quick fix llike oil or heating or it will screw up an excellent glove.

Pros: fantastic glove. Great way to break in this glove is by taking the padding out at the wrist also called the "heel pad" after you do this tighten the wrsit strap. Now the glove will feel like an extension of your hand giving you much more control of the glove

Cons: nothing son.

Pros: This glove is perfect for just playing catch. Don't underestimate the challenge of finding just the right glove for that. High school and college position players will want either a big, secure outfielder's glove or a tiny, fast infielder's mitt. But this Nokona is a Swiss Army knife. It feels "just right" for catching anything--pop ups, grounders, hard throws--that my 12-year-old son rifles my way. I like this even better than Nokona's much more expensive Bloodline gloves. Thanks Nokona.

Cons: My dog would chew it if she got the chance. She's got very good taste.

Pros: An amazing glove. I got it for christmas and i haven't really used that much but it is already almost broken in. the leather is top quality people say that it seams heavy. I don't know what they are talking about. It is a great glove I use it for pitching and infield. You should definetly get the nokon glove conditioner it really helps. You don't have to worry about your glove changing colors, and it doesn't at all make it weigh more. DO NOT do those quick fixes to break your glove in. It will mess up your glove. to break it in just put a good amount of the nokona glove conditioner all over the glove including the inside were you put your hand because the oils from your hand will ruin the leather.Also play catch if you do all of that your nokona pro line series should be broken in in no time at all.

Cons: If there were any cons then I wouldn't have commented on the glove and I would of sended it back and got a different model.

Pros: I got my amg1150sxmt about a week ago and it already feels broken in, which surprised me. I play 2nd base and this glove is perfect for the job. Although it does feel sort of heavy, it closes really well and is easy to transfer the ball to your hand. Plain and simple, I love this glove.

Pros: Quick and easy break in. I bought the amg1150 cw for my nephew; that one is really stiff. This 1150 pro series is a lot softer. It's still firm, but a lot softer than the wallnut leather. Curious to see how the buffalo combos are... Thanks Nokona!

Pros: Superior construction, buttery leather. Comfortable, quick action, intuitive feel. Fantastic glove. Has become my "go to" glove. This is the glove I always bring with me, and the first one I grab when it's time to play or even just goof off. Most of my other gloves have become displays and loaners. I'm not going to bother blathering on about why it's better than this glove or that glove, I like it, so what's the point? Nearly perfect.

Cons: Has a solid weight to it, not recommended for limp-wristed wusses ... Plays a bit stiff when it's cold out, but who doesn't?

Death To Flying Things

Pros: This glove is flat out perfect. It's replacing an older Wilson A2000 from when they were made in the USA, and the Nokona tops it hands down. I've had mine six years, and it's still very much in its prime.

Cons: Not a con, exactly, but one thing to note. Nokona seems to have changed their model numbers to make the gloves run more "true to size." The model number on mine is actually an AMG 1200--a 12 incher--but it's an identical glove. While you'll read some reviews that suggest that Nokona "run small" that not the case anymore. This is an ideal glove for an adult or teen infielder or pitcher. The glove is probably a little stiff and heavy for a young player, but better in this regard than many premium gloves.

Pros: My 11-year-old son loves this Nokona glove. I specifically bought the "used" glove so that all of the "breaking of the glove in work" wold be complete. I was so surprised at the immaculate condition this "used" glove was. The previous owner took great care of it. My son cannot wait until baseball practice begins so he can get regular use of his new glove.

Cons: It's not baseball season yet, so he is not using his new glove every day yet.

My favorite glove!! Richie Gray player

Pros: Ive played Rawlings HOH, Pro Select, Wilson A2K, a2000 and decided to give Nokona a try. A teammate had been playing Nokona and said he loved everything about it and wouldnt trade it for anything. He was dead on right! I found this glove to be extremely comfortable even during the break in period. Once I broke it in, I can say without hesitation its the best feeling glove Ive ever played. There is just enough padding in the palm to feel the ball and adjust quickly for that double play. Just take a look and try one on next time your in a sporting goods store. You will feel the difference between this glove and other high end gloves. The leather is stiff but very soft and comfortable when worn. Break in took a bit but doesnt it always with a quality glove. This glove forms to your hand and will break in to whatever your style of play you prefer. I flared mine a bit at the thumb and its coming out perfect. One last thing I would like to mention Nokona is hand made in the USA!

Cons: My little brother keeps trying to take it. Hes going to have to wait until his birthday to get his.

Best glove i own Daniel Player

Pros: I am a high school baseball player in my junior year, and this glove is easily my favorite. the leather is soft and light but extremely durable. the lining was a little tight when it was new but now it has molded exactly into the shape of my hand. mine is now about 2 years old but it's still in a good enough condition for probably another full 60 game season. Love this glove and will buy another soon!

Cons: the glove itself is on the pricier side and took me a half the season to break it in. I mean the stiffness basically reflects the quality and the durability of the leather but it takes some patience to break in :(

Questions and Answers (67)

Have a question about the Nokona 11.5" Pro Line Series Baseball Glove: PL-1150M? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Impressed with the above reviews. What is the equivalent right hand glove to the Nokona Pro Line Series amg1150sxmt?
As of 1/21/11 the closest thing we have is the American Pro AMG1150WMT which uses walnut leather in its construction.
Is this a hard or soft leather glove?
Due to this glove being made of higher quality leather it is going to be harder leather that is going to require a bit longer break in period
Does Nokona make an adult, left-handed first basemen's glove?
Yes. Both the AMGFBSXOW and AMGFBBL are made in left handed models, but as of 5/29/2011 we do not have any in stock. Keep an eye on our website becauase as soon as we receive more in stock we will post them on our site.
I was looking at this glove and it looks like an amazing glove and I am interested in ordering it. Is this more of an infield or outfield glove?
A 11.5 inch glove is a common size infielders glove for someone of High School age or older. There is nothing that says it can't be used in the outfield though.
What position is this glove for?
This isn't a position specific glove and it can be used anywhere on the field. At 11.5 inches though, it's most commonly used in the infield or by pitchers.
I am entering 9th grade and lookin for a reliable gllove for middle infield. I am a good player was asked to play high school ball in middle school. I really want to know if this is the glove for me?
malverne beast
Most infield gloves are 11.00-11.50. This is going to be a great glove for the infield. This is a very durable glove and you will be able to use it for a long time.
How long does the shipping take to get to North Carolina?
With our standard shipping, delivery to North Carolina typically takes 2-3 business days.
I see a weird dangling string on the glove near the web. What is it?
triple king
That is actually and extra piece of lacing that one of Nokona's tags is typically attached to. It can be easily removed prior to using the glove.
Does this glove come in left hand? Also, which glove would have better padding this or the 1786DB A2000 Series?
It does come in a Left Hand Throwers model. We are currently out of stock, but we are expecting some to arrive within the next few weeks. I would give the 1786DB a slight edge in padding.
Is this glove heavy or light because the palm leather makes it look heavy.
This glove really isn't that heavy. Compared to other gloves of the same size and style, it will be average or just slightly above average in weight.
Is there a big difference between the Bloodline and the Pro Line?
The Bloodline Series will be a little higher in quality and will have a slight edge on the Pro Lines in terms of durability. Because of this, the Bloodlines will be pretty stiff out of the box and will take some extra time to break in. The Pro Lines are great gloves though and many players prefer them because they are easier to break in, but still offer exceptional durability.
Don't know which glove to buy between the Bloodline or the Pro Line? I play all-around the infield.
That is a difficult decision. The Bloodlines are made with a stiffer, higher quality leather and will require more break-in time. The Pro Lines are made with high quality, but more traditional leather. The Bloodlines will have more of a glossy look and smoother feel than the Pro Lines. Both would be good for any infield position (assuming you're looking at both in a 11.5 inch).
I was wondering which glove had better padding, which one was softer, and which one was heavier? This or the Wilson A2000 1786DB model?
This glove is going to have a lot of padding and take about a week to break in. This will be a very durable glove with great leather. This glove will be a stiffer glove.
I really like the construction of this glove and the fact that it's made in the U.S.A. I'm in the market for an 11.5" glove for my 9 yr old son. Is this a viable option, or is it too heavy/loose at the wrist for a young player?
The Prolines are solid gloves. Very well made with high quality leather. It is an adult glove so the wrist opening may be a bit loose for a 9 year old.
I am an old fart and I used to play baseball decades ago. I have some neighbor kids I want to play pitch with. I have a glove but I want an American made glove from you. I think I want an infield baseball glove. I have a new grandson so I would like to have a pretty good glove that I might pass on to him. Please give me some suggestions. My hand size is med-large to large.
This is going to be a great glove for you to use and pass down to your grandson. This is going to be one of the most durable gloves out on the market right now. This is going to be a gloves that will be able to hold up and keep its form for many years.
Would this glove last longer than A2000?
mister swag
No, not longer. But they are both very durable gloves. Both the Pro line and the A2000s use very high quality leather in there construction.
I know you say that 11.5 is recomended for infield, but would this be a good outfield glove for a thirteen year old who plays all around?
Nokona gloves run smaller, so for an outfielder I would go up to a 12".
My son is 10 years old and plays travel ball. He plays mostly third and pitcher. His hands and fingers are thin. Can this glove be adjusted so that he gets a snug fit? Or do you recommend another mitt?
Nokona gloves run a little smaller than most gloves, so this would be a great glove for someone with smaller hands.
Does this glove have good padding overall? Is it durable and will it last a long time? Will it fit a 12 year old with a small hand good?
Nokona's run small so this would be a perfect fit for a 12 year old with small hands. It has high quality leather and will be very durable.
You mentioned a few times that the Nokona's run smaller. Are you referring to the over-all glove size (outside) or the inside for the the palm & fingers? Also, how does this glove compare in weight compared to the Wilson A2000 Showcase 11 1/2?
Nokona does run slightly smaller on the inside. All gloves are measured when the leather is laying flat and before the gloves are stitched, so all gloves differ from glove to glove. Which is one of the reasons we have our 100 day guarantee.
Is there a 11.75 version of this glove?
Not of that exact glove. The closest we have to it is the PL1175H, which is the H web rather than the modified trapeze.
What size glove would you suggest for a 14 year old girls fastpitch player that plays middle infield that has small hands? Would last until her college career is over and also which Nokona series would you suggest?
The most common size for middle infield is 11.50 to 12 inch. Nokona gloves are made to last. Also, because each glove will fit different, that is why we offer the 100 day gurantee. So any glove she chooses, if it doesn't fit or break in the way you need it to, you have 100 days to return it.
Would this be a good glove for an 11 yr old who is a little bigger than average and plays infield and outfield, or is this considered and adult glove?
Nokona gloves tend to run a little smaller. This glove should fit an 11 year old. This is a very durable glove that is made in the USA.
Do you have any demo gloves that are for a right hander?
All of our demo's will vary on what customers send back to us. Check online as new gloves are added sparingly.
Which would you consider to be the better quality glove, the Nokona Tribal Series AMG1200TRMT or the Nokona Pro Line Series AMG1150SXMT?
Both are made of the best quality leather and will be very durable. You can't go wrong with either glove.
I play every position on the field but catcher and first base, would this be a glove that I could use in the outfield and the infield? What would be the best glove for a utility player like me?
This glove is going to be a very good model for a utility player, most gloves in the 11.50 or 11.75 would work for a utility player
Do you know if or when you will get more stock in this glove for right hand thrower?
We do have some on order and we expect to receive around the 2nd or 3rd week of January, 2012.
Which is better (longer lasting, sturdier) this or the Nokona buffalo?
g love
Both are going to be long lasting. The Buffalo Combo has a little stronger leather than the Pro Line.
Would this be a good choice for a 10 year old pitcher/ shortstop?
Yes this glove is a good choice for a ten year old pitcher/shortstop?
Do you think this glove is suitable for a 7-8 year old?
This particular model might be too big for a 7-8 year old. I would suggest looking into a youth model for someone so young. A youth model will have a smaller wrist opening and more narrow finger stalls, which will fit a younger persons hand a lot better than an adult model will. We do not have this particular model in a youth size, but the following link will give you all the youth models we do have available:
The Nokona Pro Line Series would be to big for a 7 to 8 year old and we suggest youth size glove for those ages.
What size do I need? I'm about 5'9" at 175. Is 11.5 a big enough glove to play catch with my kids?
The Nokona Pro Line Series: PL1150M will work very well for playing catch with your kids. 11.5 inch is big enough, or you could look at 11.75 to 12 inch models that would provide you with a little bigger pocket and would also work for playing catch. Here are some links for other Nokona options.
What would be better to put on the glove, shaving cream or Nokona's oil?
Nokona's glove conditioner is best for their gloves. Shaving cream can dry out the leather.
I heard the oil makes it heavier and the shaving cream would make it lighter?
If you use too much oil, it can make the glove heavier. Shaving cream will not make the glove lighter in weight. Our Glove Resource Guide is a very helpful tool...
Would this glove be a good for a ten year old infielder?
The PL1150M is a 11.5 inch glove (which is about the average size infielder's glove at the High School and College level). I think it may be just a little too big for a 10 year old. Also, the PL1150M is a very high quality glove that will be very difficult for a 10 year old to break in.
Which glove is easier to break in: The Pro Line, or the Buffalo Combo, or the Bloodline?
Between those three, the Bloodline is the hardest to break in followed by the Pro Line and Buffalo Combo (in that order).
Is this glove good for a 13 year old pitcher/middle infielder?
The Nokona Pro Line Series: PL1150M would be a great glove for a pitcher/middle infielder! This glove has an infield design, is the recommended size for an infield position, and should work well at hiding pitches also.
How heavy is this glove compare to the Pro Preferred Rawlings or the new Mizuno gloves?

People say that Nokona gloves get really flimsy after you brake the glove in, is this true?
When high quality gloves like the PL1150M, or any other Nokona for that fact, get flimsy most times it is because their owners do not care for them properly. Nokona makes gloves that will last for many, many seasons if they are cared for properly.

I understand that Nokona gloves run small. But if I were to get a 12 in version of this glove, will it fit like an 11.85, 11.75, etc? Nokona gloves do not run an entire whole or half size smaller right?
The newer Nokona models don't run as small as they used to. A 12" model may measure around 11.8" to 11.9".
Is this a good glove for a 12 year old to use. I want this to last me through high school.

Would this glove be good for third base and outfield?
The 11.5" length in the Nokona Pro Line Series (PL1150M) (AMG1150SXMT) will make it much too small for use by a outfielder. It could be used at third base, but most 3rd basemen are prefer a little bigger models at an 11.75" length. This Pro Line model would be most ideal for a middle infielder.
I'm reading all these great reviews on gloves for around $220. This glove included. But they seem to be a bit small. They all seem to be around the 11.5" mark. I need an 11.75" because I play 90% of the time at third. I also have a pretty big hand so tight fitting gloves aren't my thing. Is there a good 11.75" glove out that isn't made for small hands?

The 2016 Nokona 11.5" Pro Line Series Baseball Glove (PL-1150M) might be a little bit large for a 10 year old, I would recommend the 2016 Nokona Alpha Select Series Baseball Glove (S-200) Youth.

About the Brand

Joe Phillips writes about his visit to Nokona. It was like sitting in at the plantation party in Gone with the Wind or maybe gazing from the grandstand at the “Field of Dreams” while the Black Sox players tried to work out their idled muscle kinks. And, I was gently reminded by the lines in that movie while I dug into a delicious plate of North Texas barbecue: “threshing crews eating at outdoor tables. It continually reminds us of what once was, like an Indian-head penny in a handful of new coins. . . You talk a good dream.” And here I was. . . graciously invited into this magical and charming “Field of Glove-Making Dreams” in former Comanche Indian land at Nocona, Texas. It was a warm August evening, basked in a golden harvest moon, while friends and the Nokona family paid its kindly southern regards to two of their own and two of America’s finest but relatively obscure glove makers, Bobby Storey and Elvin Ray “Ab” Lemons. You see, the pair had just completed fifty years of time-honored employment with Nocona Athletic Goods, the last of the all-American made ball glove company's. The occasion brought echoes of past successes and human contentment, but in Nocona today you still experience much the same American texture of yesterday and perhaps a glimpse into tomorrow as well.

The two stately gentlemen were being honored in a way that could have taken place in the same manner when they first reported for full-time work at Nokona, in 1952, or back even earlier, in 1933 when the company started making sports equipment. During a brief and informal presentation at the celebration, Nokona’s new sales manager called the two glove makers “Legends - because that’s what their ball gloves stood for, American know-how and pride taken in a best-made product.”

A man of few words but a marveled craftsman who could literally conjure a sows ear into a playable baseball mitt, Mr. Lemons got up and fondly recalled the several men he worked with through his half-century and of the training that had been passed along to him from his old bosses.

His counter part and just as talented, Bobby Storey, had filled in at just about every job at Nokona. Bobby, the son of the sporting goods founder, R.E. “Bob” Storey had most recently served as president and now chairman of the board of Nokona. Though past retirement age like Mr. Lemons, he’s now serving at one of his favorite roles, that of ball glove designer.

At a time for employment in this country when five years is considered a long tenure with the same company, Ab and Bobby are not even the first to complete a half-century journey with Nocona Athletics. The now deceased Jewell Brickey, hit that milestone in 1993, after joining the company during World War II. That’s the kind of devotion that employees forge into this glove-making outfit. A devoted and sustained tenure here is not rare. Last year the company advertising, displayed along with Storey and Lemons, three other employees who had garnered 40 years with Nokona, Warren Clary, Bud Meekins, and Melvin Weedin.“

I don’t have to tell you that the one constant through all the years has been baseball”, wrote W.P. Kinsella. And the most constant of ball glove makers has been Nokona, and the men and women there who keep alive the tradition of American craftsmanship of ball glove making. The spirit of glove-making is still alive and well in Nocona, Texas.
