Pros: Great Glove My daughter is a Varsity All Distict catcher and see Loves her Akadema Praying Mantis catchers mitt, it is really made for the female player. Cons:only issue we have have over the last 4 years is the outer layer is coming off catching you get down and dirty and we think some of the line marker must have caused the mitt to start loosing its outer shell ?

My daughter is an 11 year old fast pitch catcher. She's average size for an 11 year old. What type/size of mitt do you suggest?

The Akadema Praying Mantis Series: APM66 Fastpitch Catcher's Mitt is a bit large at 34.50". Based on her age, we would recommend a 32.00" to 32.50" model. For further sizing information, please visit our Glove Coach at http://www.justballgloves.com/glove-coach/

My daughter is an average size 9th grader. What size catcher's mitt will get here through high school?

An average sized high school girl should go with a 33" glove to make it through four years of high school. If the glove is too small we offer a worry-free, 100 day return policy on all of our gloves.

Looking for a fast pitch glove to catch my daughter, either 34.0 or 34.5. Any brands better for larger hands (Mizuno was a tight fit)? I saw this, or maybe the Worth FPEX (others?). Any thoughts appreciated.

Both my sisters played fastpitch softball, one of which went on to pitch Division I softball. So, I grew up around the game. All the coaches (and my father) on their teams used a large baseball fielders glove or a large baseball first baseman's mitt to catch with during warm-ups and in practice. Most female fastpitch mitts will fit very tight on an adult male with average to above average size hands. If you go with a female fastpitch softball catcher's mitt, the best option in my opinion would be the Akadema Praying Mantis you're looking at.

Product Description

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 patent "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!
