Deciding between this glove and the Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core. Need a glove with a lot of padding that holds its shape and doesn't become floppy. Catching guys throwing 85-95 so need something that can take that. I like a glove to also be a tad bit stiffer out of the box so I can form it how I want.
The Akadema Praying Mantis Series: APM40 Catcher's Mitt With FREE Akadema Sunglasses wouldn't be as stiff as the Rawlings Heart Of The Hide Dual Core Series: PROCM33DCC. The Rawlings will have the most padding as well.
How stiff will this be when I get it out of the box and how long would it take to break in this glove. Is this baseball or softball?
The Akadema Praying Mantis Series: APM40 Catcher's Mitt is an adult baseball catcher's mitt. It will be stiff out of the box and like most catcher's mitts, it will require a decent amount of break in time.
What size catchers glove would you recommend for a 9-10 year old girl who plays softball. She's also a lefty. Would this glove be good for her?
The APM40 is an adult baseball catchers mitt. We suggest a 31.50 to a 32.00 youth fastpitch glove.
Akadema is the most exciting baseball and softball company in the world. Akadema's ownership attributes an increasing market share to their innovative quality professional product line in contrast to mass-produced products that have little to do with quality, feel, or design that raise the level of play. Much like in the insect world where the Praying Mantis is known to devour its competition, Akadema's new catcher's mitt will do the same to conventional catcher's mitts. The Akadema patent Praying Mantis is the most innovative catcher's mitt ever to hit the market, with many unique features setting it apart from the competition. With new patented Stress Wedge technology, located between the index finger and thumb, the Praying Mantis offers shock-absorbing protection for the hand against injury and sting when receiving the ball. The Praying Mantis also offers two additional Finger Hammocks allowing the fingers to be firmly positioned and more secure in the glove. Additional features include the Double-sided Slim Padding allowing for increased pocket size and easier ball retention. Uniquely designed shape allows the throwing hand easier access in the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove to hand transfer and faster times to second base. Akadema: Bring Your "A" Game!
