How is the palm padding on this mitt? I purchased a Nokona AL-3200 for my son that he now refuses to use because of the lack of protection in the palm. I really don't want to repeat this scenario.
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12) has relatively average level padding for a youth mitt but the high quality leather and stress wedge allow the pocket's leather to be more reinforced which helps protect the hand. 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.
I understand the laces being a bit loose and in need of tightening when new but how loose/tight should the web laces be? The double strung laces confuse me. Seems like a great glove.
The laces on the Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12 Youth Catcher's Mitt) should fit comfortably but the glove should still be able to properly perform. The feel of the laces ultimately comes down to personal preference.
Is this glove durable?
The Akadema Prodigy Series (AGC98-12) Youth Catcher's Mitt is constructed from U.S Steerhide and AkademaLyte leather which results in a not only a lighter mitt, but a durable mitt as well.
Akadema is the most exciting baseball and softball company in the world. Their increasing market share can be attributed to their innovative quality and professionally designed product line. Focusing on the quality, feel and small details has lifted Akadema to the next level. With a goal to provide products for all ball players, Akadema has created the new Prodigy Youth Series. Constructed from U.S. Steerhide throughout the pocket and webbing, the Prodigy Series provides ideal toughness and padding. On the back of the glove, this series features the exclusive AkademaLyte leather that decreases the overall weight. This not only allows these gloves to be more easily playable, it also significantly decreases the break-in time to the point where these gloves are virtually game-ready out of the box. With the younger player in mind, Akadema slightly narrowed the finger stalls on these gloves to provide a more snug fit. Akadema: Bring Your "A Game"! Free Shipping!
Thanks for the info on the return. The glove that we kept is great. The glove is just right for my little girl that plays in a 10 and under select softball league. I will be ordering my son a new glove in the near future and I will utilize the services of BallGloveWarehouse.
