Mizuno Franchise Softball Series: GFN1403 review by Gents and Splints
Pros: Stunning! I just wanted a big ol' 14" fly-ball eater for my men's softball team but didn't want to spend too much since OF isn't my primary position, but I didn't want a cheap-o PE class glove either. Well, this glove is so awesome that I might be asking my coach for more playing time out there! Smells, looks and feels like highest-quality leather, MUCH more so than I would've dreamed for a glove this price. Fits my small-to-medium hand just fine, but the finger stall have plenty of extra room so it should comfortably fit larger hands as well. The pocket is massive, and the glove feels true to size. Can't wait to gobble up white balls like a Hungry Hungry Hippo. To boot, it's so soft that break in time is extremely minimal. Didn't even need the glove oil I ordered, just worked it with my hands, played a little catch, and now it's pretty much game ready. Cons:WARNING - This glove comes with the nagging sense of fear and worry that this site will be contacting you at any minute to tell you that they sent you a $200 glove by mistake and need it back!

Pros: I was able to use it the first time I tried without a lot of balls bouncing out of. I spent $150 (Custom),on my last glove and this one is just as good. Cons:

Ask A Question

Does this glove have padding in the palm?

Yes, the Mizuno Franchise Softball Series: GFN1403 glove features a ParaShock Palm Pad.

I was ready to buy this glove but after reading the reviews there were two reviews that indicated the lacing broke within the first two weeks. What is up with that? Do you have many gloves that have this problem and why do you think it is happening. What is the guarantee if this happens after you receive the glove.

All of our gloves have a 100 Day guarantee. You can break it in and fully play with it for 100 days. You can return it or exchange it for any reason. I have not heard of many issues with this Mizuno Franchise Softball Series: GFN1403. This glove will come with a softer feel and have a light play weight.

Is this a good 3rd base men glove?

I've seen all size gloves at use at third base in slow pitch. Most commonly, it's a 13", but some prefer a larger pocket found in 14" mitts (like the Mizuno Franchise Softball Series: GFN1403).
