I'm 15 turning 16 soon and my main position is catcher, I'm 5' 8", and 145 pounds. What size catchers glove do you recommend me using?

You should get the Akadema Precision Series Praying Mantis: APM241 Catcher's Mitt With FREE Akadema Sunglasses in a 33.00" mitt.

I'm 13 turning 14 in about a month. I'm not a huge kid, I'm 5'2" and about 90 pounds. I use a fielders mitt size 11.50". I play travel, would this glove be a good size? Is there another glove you would recommend?

The Akadema Precision Series Praying Mantis: APM241 Catcher's Mitt would be a good option at 33.00",if you wanted to have the mitt for a couple years. Based on your age and position, we recommend a 32.00" to 32.50" model. For further information on sizing, please visit the Glove Coach at http://www.justballgloves.com/glove-coach/

My son is 11.5 years old and has been catching for going on 4 years. He is currently using a 31.5" mitt and it's too small. Is jumping up to a 33" too much? Also, I was looking at this glove and the Mizuno GXC95Y, which one is a better quality glove and which one will break-in the fastest?

The 12 year old catcher is recommended to use a glove size of 32". The gloves you are looking at are 33". It all just depends on your son's hands size and how he prefers his gloves. Both the Akadema Precision Series Praying Mantis: APM241 Catcher's Mitt With FREE Akadema Sunglasses and the Mizuno GXC95Y will break-in easily. Both will also have great quality. I really think both mitts could work well for your son.

Product Description

The Akadema Praying Mantis Catcher's Mitt is made from Akadema's Pro Soft Leather. The Praying Mantis Series uses Pro Soft Leather that is very soft and easy to break-in. Ultimately, the Praying Mantis Series design provides the player with a more pliable glove. This allows for easier break-in. The APM241 combines the quality and softness of the Pro Soft Soft Series with the technology of the Praying Mantis design. 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 Professional - "On the cutting Edge of Sports Technology". Free Shipping.
