The A2K series takes everything that ballplayers love about Wilson baseball gloves and kicks it up an extra notch! The Pro Stock Select leather that is used to build this line has been triple sorted in Wilson's factories. This intensive selection process results in only the top 5% of Wilson-selected hides being used to create these gloves. To assist that incredible leather is the Dual Palm construction which consists of a thin piece of material strategically placed between the palm of the shell and the palm of the inner-hand lining. This small piece does wonders to the glove as it adds to the structure of the shell. As well, it rids A2K gloves of palm wrinkles which have been known to cause baseballs to pop out of the grasp of other gloves.
Wilson crafted this model in the 1786 pattern which happens to be their most popular glove for infielders. The 11.5" length combined with the Wilson H-Web (commonly called an I-Web by other manufacturers) is almost irresistible for infielders. In addition, the design creates a rather shallow pocket which is beneficial for middle infielders (SS & 2B) as it allows for quick transfers and easy glove flips. As well, you can go ahead and tote it over to 3B as well if you are comfortable with a little shorter glove at the hot corner. Add Spin Tech to your glove to stop any ball from spinning out and smooth transition to your hand.
Lastly, don't forget about the SuperSkin backing. SuperSkin gives the glove a lightweight feel and is also technically stronger than regular leather.
When customers think of baseball and softball glove excellence, Wilson definitely comes to mind.
