The Buckaroo Fastpitch Series features a perfect combination of Kangaroo leather and cowhides to form a lightweight yet sturdy glove that today's ballers look for. Kangaroo leather, both amazingly strong and lightweight, significantly increases the mitt's durability. In fact, Kangaroo Leather is one of the toughest leathers in the world so you know the Buckaroo Fastpitch Series is made to last. Nokona's classic Walnut Crunch Leather, on the other hand, adds body and form needed to maintain a solid pocket and overall fit. As if that's not enough, the Buckaroo Fastpitch Series features Nokona's new deep-pocket, easier break-in fastpitch pattern, which includes their new and improved Ristankor Closure System. This top-of-the-line feature meets the demands of today's top players. Originally developed in the 1950's, the Ristankor is now made with Velcro to secure the hand in the glove while allowing for an easier break-in. With a closed web and closed back, this 13.00 inch glove is ideal for all positions except for catching and first base.

Pros: Great glove, feels very solid with a nice deep pocket. The wrist strap is secure which has been a problem with other gloves. Worth the money so far.

Cons: It will take some time to break in. Had mine steamed and have used for two weeks, almost game ready. Snug fit on a mans hand but I prefer that.

Pros: This glove has a great pocket and is shaped nice. Finder stalls comfortable for my 15 year old daughter. Truly a game ready glove, we took it out of the plastic on the way to a practice and she was using it right away. Won't be using any ointment or beating with a mallet but not floppy either.

Pros: Purchased 2 of these gloves one for each of my nieces, both of which play in the outfield. They love the gloves so far and don't foresee that changing. The gloves live up to their reputation as expected.

Cons: Packaging and shipping!!!!!!!!! Packaging; A total of 3 gloves were purchased, when they arrived, I was surprised to find these 3 high quality gloves crammed into 1 box barely large enough for 1 glove. Shipping; Paid extra for 2nd air, arrived 2 days after the delivery date.

The outside of this glove is very soft leather are there any precautions to keep it in good shape? I already use the Nokona conditioner on it. It just seems like it would wear a lot faster than other Nokona gloves that I have purchased.
The Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series (BKF-1300) is a very durable glove. We recommend to use a light layer of glove conditioner. Over oiling the glove can make it heavy and flimsy. The Nokona Buckaroo uses a combination of kangaroo and cowhide leather, which helps with the durability.
Is this the best choice for a female slow pitch outfielder. If so, why?
I believe that this Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series (BKF-1300) will certainly be one of the better 13.00" fastpitch mitts that we are offering at JustBallGloves in regard to the quality of leather being featured on the mitt. As well, one of the most attractive features of this mitt (which makes it so highly regarded) will be that it features fantastic leather quality, but the leather is still pretty easy to break-in and get game-ready.
How much does this glove weigh?
The Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series: BKF-1300 will weigh roughly 26 ounces.
Women's or Men's?

The Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series (BKF-1300) is designed for a woman's hand.
My daughter is looking for a new outfielders glove. She is a freshman and 5'8. We're not sure if she needs a 12.5 or 13. Is it returnable if the fit isn't right?
Yes, the Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series: BKF-1300 has a 100 day warranty as well as all of our gloves.
Why does it say this is not a good glove for 1st base?
I do see in the description for this Nokona Buckaroo Fastpitch Series (BKF-1300) that it says the following: "[this] glove is ideal for all positions except for catching and first base". Despite that comment, you could definitely use this glove for first base. It is technically not designed for first base, but the 13" length should make the glove plenty big enough to give you the length coverage you will need for first base play.

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.
