Does this glove have a deeper pocket than the Prospect? It has been suggested that my 11 year old get a bigger glove. My thoughts are that he's just not receiving the ball properly into the pocket (user error) however I have noticed that the 32.5" Prospect does seem to have a shallow pocket. I'm assuming this is to aid the player in getting the ball put faster. I guess I am asking would this glove be a good step up?
The Mizuno Samurai Series: GXC95Y Youth Catcher's Mitt would be a good step up from the Mizuno Prospect Series: GXC105 Youth Catcher's Mitt. This glove will feature a deeper pocket and should help with any receiving issues he is currently facing.
My son just turned 10 and is smaller in size but has been one of the top pitchers in his league. He is interested in catching next season. Would this glove be too big, or what catcher's gear and glove would you recommend? I am looking at the Mizuno Samurai youth catcher set as well.
The Mizuno Samurai Series (GXC95Y) Youth Catcher's Mitt would be a great option for your player. It will fit well and will have good padding and support for a youth hand. That Samurai line is a nice set for youth catchers.
My son is 15 and about 5'11, would this glove be ok to use? Would a 33.5 be more appropriate given his size?
For a 15 year old the size chart it recommends a 33 inch patter. But that can always fluctuate depending on the player. Even though the Mizuno Samurai Series (GXC95Y Youth Catcher's Mitt) is a 33.50, your son could still use it.
Mizuno's top craftsmen have over 65 years of combined glove making experience that translates into high quality ball gloves for players of all ages. The new Samurai Series catcher's mitts are no different. Made from full grain oil-treated leather, these mitts are soft to the touch and easy to break in. That doesn't mean that they sacrifice any durability or hand protection. Featuring patent pending thumb protection technology, these mitts are easy to close while still providing that extra protection on the inside of your hand. The Samurai Series mitts also feature Mizuno's ParaShock Palm Pad that absorbs sting even after repeated use. ParaShock provides less rebound, more protection, and an overall sense of comfort for catcher's. These mitts feature a conventional open back and a two-piece closed web to give players fantastic control behind the plate. The GXC95Y is a transitional-sized catcher's mitt that is the ideal stepping stone from a youth mitt to an adult one. Mizuno: Never Settle! Free Shipping!
I have to admit, this was one of the best overall internet or regular purchasing experiences ever. I have a large hand and I had not been able to find a good fitting catchers mitt in my local retail/wholesale evironment. I mad a few inquiries about your exchange and shipping policy and proceeded to order 3 different mitts to try on, to no avail, none were suitable for me. I chose the return the mitts and order the Rawlings PROSCM41B mitt, which arrived, and fits great and is a keeper!! Your company also provided a complete return credit along with free shipping both ways, REMARKABLE!! The person I spoke to was very knowledgeable about the product and the policy, ALL good stuff as far as I am concerned!! Thank you again for a truly great experience!! Ron
