What are the specific differences between the Torino and Precision mitt's?
The biggest difference that will exist between this Akadema Torino Series Praying Mantis (APM43 Catcher's Mitt) and the Akadema Precision Series Praying Mantis (APM241 Catcher's Mitt) is that this Torino Series Parying Mantis features much higher quality kip leather (when compared to the leather on the Precision Series Praying Mantis). Besides that difference in leather quality, the two gloves display very similar features.
What hand size/opening does the APM43 seem to be made for?
The Akadema Torino Series Praying Mantis: APM43 Catcher's Mitt is designed for a teenage player ideally; between the ages of 12-15.
What is the difference between this glove and the APM241?
The Akadema Torino Series Praying Mantis: APM43 Catcher's Mitt is made of kip leather that gives it a slightly lighter feel, while the Akadema Precision Series Praying Mantis: APM241 Catcher's Mitt is constructed from select steerhide leather. The patterns of the gloves also differ in regards to shape and web type.
Known for comfortable gloves that perform unlike anything else on the field, Akadema has raised the bar with the Torino Series. With a light brown palm and a chocolate brown shell, the Torino Series performs even better than it looks! Akadema's newest glove line is made from soft and smooth kip leather that enables the Torino Series to be 20% lighter than traditional gloves, yet just as durable as U.S. steerhide. These gloves break-in quickly yet retain their shape better than any other glove on the market. This 33.00 Inch Praying Mantis Catcher's Mitt features Akadema's patented new Stress Wedge technology. Located between the index finger and thumb, the Stress Wedge offers shock absorbing protection for the hand when catching pitches. Two Finger Hammocks allow the fingers to be positioned more securely in the glove, giving the player added control. Additional features include the Double-sided Slim Padding that allows for increased pocket size and easier ball retention. The uniquely designed shape of this mitt allows the throwing hand easier access into the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove to hand transfer and faster times to second base. The Praying Mantis also features a Double Flexhinge which makes the glove snap closed on contact. Akadema: Bring Your "A" Game! Free Shipping!
