Forgive me, I'm not a baseball guy but my son is a baseball kid. We have the CM1010BT, and we're looking for a training mitt. Can you help me understand if the CM100TM is same size from a catching surface area perspective as the CM1010BT? Is the 4 inch difference in size the protective padding around the outside or will this really provided a smaller area for receiving the ball successfully (my son is 11 & wears a YM sized D30 impact glove)?
The training mitt will have the same size pocket as a standard adult sized model catcher's mitt. The reduction is in the padding and other areas around the pocket, which forces the player to catch the pitch with the pocket instead of relying on the finger padding and other areas of the glove to direct the ball to the pocket.
What speeds can this glove handle?
The All Star Training Mitt (CM100TM) Catcher's Mitt is a training mitt and can handle all speeds like the other. Since it is a training mitt, it will be smaller than usual.
Will this glove hold up catching bullpens in the high 80's? Also, what is the difference between this and the CM150TM FOCUS FRAMER 29" TRAINING MITT aside from the 150 giving 2 extra inches?
The All Star Training Mitt: CM100TM Catcher's Mitt is not going to be designed to catch bullpens. The glove is meant to be used in framing, transfer, and popup drills. As for the CM150TM, the main difference is going to be the fact that it is made to withstand faster pitching speeds.

About All Star
I had already purchased a catcher's mitt for my eight year old son just days before. Like any 8 yr. old, he couldn't wait to go play with his new glove. However, I told him that I found a glove online that was different, yet like his, only that it had a fluorescent pocketed area. I explained to him that it had many benefits, one of which was that it would standout and not be mistaken for any others, thus preventing being picked up by someone else by mistake. I also told him that the orange pocket color would give his young pitching staff an easier target to throw to. Well as you can expect none of that really mattered to an 8 yr. old. He just wanted his glove to play with now, especially by his next game. I assured him that it would arrive in 5 days. He then agreed to see the other glove before making his final decision. Surprisingly, it arrived in 2 days. Dad was the hero, he now had the other glove and my son could make a decision between the two mitts. He loved the Rawlings catchers mitt I'm sure because the fluorescent color made it stand out, but more importantly that it arrived in a timely fashion so that he could start playing with it. Three thumbs up to the person I talked with on the phone late that even, for being so helpful and assuring me that it would still get out in that days shipment. Thanks a million Ball Glove Warehouse.
