Is this comparable to the PRO88DCC, or which model is? I want to replace the PRO88DCC with comparable model.
Yes, the 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core 11.25" Baseball Glove: PRO217DC-2B is a very comparable option to the PRO88DCC. Both options feature the same Horween leather, Dual Core technology, and have the same 11.25" pattern. The main difference is the cosmetics.
Would this be a good glove for an 11 year old?
This glove is designed to fit an adult sized hand, so as long as their hand size is adequate enough for the glove, it would certainly be a great option.
How much easier of a break in is the dual core model versus the regular model? I have an 11-12 year old son so I want the break in to be a little easier given his hand will be smaller. Would you recommend the dual core model or the narrow regular model?
Dual Core Technology softens the leather at specific points that most infielders like to be a bit looser when they squeeze the glove. Because of this, the glove comes more broken in than the Narrow Fit model, with 75% of the break-in done by the factory. However the Narrow Fit series is designed to fit smaller hands, so you will need to take that into consideration.
New for 2017! For over 125 years, Rawlings has consistently released only the highest quality and longest lasting game day gloves in baseball and the Heart of the Hide Dual Core Series has always been a fielder's top choice. The Dual Core Technology associated with these gloves is a cut into the palm lining allowing for position specific break points for a personalized fit and an easy, natural closure. During the catch, the inner palm adjusts to the shape of the outer palm; efficiently absorbing impact and protecting the player's hand from any sting. Additionally, since these gloves consist of the exclusive Horween "Featherlite" leather, the Dual Core baseball gloves undergo a rigorous tanning process which results in a soft, game-ready feel and less of a break-in period. Rawlings has done a lot of the work for you and applied a 75% factory break-in to these models. Not only is there less of a break-in period, but since the palm lining is the same material as the shell, the Heart of the Hide Dual Core gloves experience a consistent break-in and have excellent pocket formation throughout the life of the glove. Similar to that of other Rawlings ball gloves, the Tennessee tanning rawhide leather laces tie it all together while adding structure, durability, and strength. Last, but not least, the thumb loops will come padded for a luxurious and comfortable feel. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro!
This 2017 Rawlings Heart of the Hide Dual Core Baseball Glove: PRO217DC-2B features an 11.25 inch pattern, a pro I-web, and is intended for a middle infielder.
