5 Stars: Overall Rating

Pros: Very light weight and beautiful craftsmanship. This is a glove that should only get better with time. The glove has a great pocket and the design really helps gather in off center catches.

Cons: For my daughter, the glove was quite stiff out of the box but we are having fun breaking it in. Give it some time and some TLC and you will be happy.

Quality Glove John Coach

Pros: You can easily tell it is made with high quality leather. It is light enough for my 10 year old.

Cons: Very Stiff. The break-in process has been a lot longer than any glove I’ve purchased in the past.

Nokona for the WIN! John Keen Coach

Pros: Looks amazing, feels great and that NOKONA Leather smells like Heaven! Huge pocket and love the adjustable strap! Totally Satisfied!

Cons: It wasn't "GAME READY" out of the box. I even had Just Gloves do their "BREAK IN" and it wasn't ready. After 100 plus balls on 50mph, 3 conditionings and some breakin with the stick.....It's coming together quite nice.

Questions and Answers

Have a question about the Nokona Alpha 32.5" Fastpitch Catcher's Mitt: S-V2? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Besides the softer leather for faster break-in period, are there any other differences in construction, padding etc. between the X2 and the S-V2? mike
The Nokona Select Plus Series Fastpitch Catchers Mitt Glove: S-V2 features an intermediate fit for young adult players and is going to be lighter overall than the X2. As far as construction and padding, both are pretty similar.
Would the SV-2 be a good glove for my 14 year old daughter starting high school next year or would she grow out of it too quickly? Would the X2 be a better choice for her high school years? mike
There is a chance she could grow out of the Nokona Select Plus Series Fastpitch Catchers Mitt Glove: S-V2 since it has a snug fit. I would suggest the Nokona X2 Elite Series to be sure it lasts throughout her high school years.
My daughter is 16, 5'8" and I'm worried this will be too small for her. Thoughts? Momma G
The Nokona Select Plus Series Fastpitch Catchers Mitt Glove: S-V2 will feature a 32.50 +/- inch pattern. For a player who is 16 we would recommend looking into getting a 33.00-33.50 inch pattern.
I came looking for answers between the SV2 and the X2 softball catchers mitt and am a little confused by some of the expert advice. I understand the difference in leather between the SV2 and X2 but they are both 32.5" which almost all of the Nokona fastpitch catchers mitts are. One expert recommended a 33-33.5" mitt for a 16 year old while another said the X2 - 32.5" would be good through high school. I'm assuming that the only reason someone would outgrow the SV2 is if their hands outgrew the palm area? The SV2 is sold as an intermediate/youth and more "snug" which leads me to believe that it's mainly the hand area which is a bit smaller but the overall pocket and outer mitt size is the same. My daughter plays 12u travel and will be moving to 14u next year so I struggled between the two models. She is average size (about 5'8" and 110 lbs) with somewhat small hands. Worried about the weight difference and wanting something guaranteed to fit. I decided on the SV2 which is 100 grams less than the X2 but am really hoping she can use it up to or past 16. Any input on this would be appreciated. Nick
The Nokona Select Plus Series Fastpitch Catchers Mitt Glove (S-V2) is going to feature that Intermediate Fastpitch Fit that you mentioned. It will be a little bit more snug than the typical mitt but if your daughter does have somewhat small hands I would think it would fit fine for years to come. It is not going to be a huge difference than the X2. If you are looking for the lighter option for her I would definitely recommend the S-V2. Also, all of our gloves can be purchased with Glove Assurance. Glove Assurance is only $29.99 additional to the cost of the glove and it gets you a 100 day trial. If you purchase the Glove Assurance and then decide the glove is not for you within 100 days from the purchase, you can return the glove for a refund.
My daughter is 14 years old. She is 5'8". I am looking for a glove that will last her throughout high school and beyond. She is a left handed thrower. The only sizes that I have been able to find for here is the 32.5". Are there any options out there for my player? Sean
Unfortunately, there will not be many left hand thrower catcher's mitts available once players start to get older. The reason is because once players start to approach high school age, the right hand thrower catchers start to be the ones who only play catcher any longer. Right hand throwers have the better advantage at catcher because they are able to control traffic of runners on the bases much easier than left hand throwers. However, if you wanted a mitt that is available for a left hand thrower and has a larger 33.00" circumference, I would recommend taking a look at the following: (Rawlings Gamer 33" Fastpitch Softball Catcher's Mitt: GSBCM33).
My daughter is a 1st year 12U player on a tournament/travel team. She currently has the Mizuno Prospect Fastpitch Series GXS101 (32.5"). The two primary pitchers can throw 45mph pitches and it is time to upgrade her glove. She is not a big kid, so fit for her hand and good padding / proper coverage in the thumb area is critical. Is this glove going to fit the bill? Especially for thumb coverage/padding? Paul B
Based off the information you've provided, I would recommend a mitt with a 32.00" or 32.50" pattern. I think the Nokona Select Plus Series Fastpitch Catchers Mitt Glove: S-V2 would be great option for your player. It features a more snug fit so that will work well if she is on the smaller side. The Buffalo and Stampede leathers will provide the durability and protection you are looking for.
Is this a buffalo skin glove? Sam
This Nokona Select Plus Series Fastpitch Catchers Mitt Glove (S-V2) will feature some Buffalo leather in the construction.
My daughter catches on a club with a pitcher throwing 60-64 mph. She's 16, a sophomore playing varsity and travel ball. Looking for a great glove that will last and help her scoop balls while also providing enough protection. Is this the glove for her? dayday
The Nokona Select Plus Series Fastpitch Catchers Mitt Glove: S-V2 would be a great option in terms of protection and durability, and offers a relatively easy break in for a catcher's mitt.
Is the pocket sufficiently large enough to handle a 12” ball? Liz
The pocket depth on the Nokona Select Plus Series Fastpitch Catchers Mitt Glove: S-V2 will be able to handle a 12 inch ball.

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.
