add_circle_outlinePros: This mitt is well made with softer leather; almost game ready when received. I dropped one ball the first time I used it. My grandson throws fast and hard. 70MPH is painless! The two main reasons it is not right for me: 1- I believe a mitt is an extension of my catching hand. I should not have to constantly adjust it on my hand. I tried with a batting glove and it is uncomfortable for me. If I put my pointer in the finger slot, I feel the ball hit the mitt. 2- The open back is a much soft leather than the rest of the mitt. It contributes to allowing my hand to shift in the mitt. Adjusting the thumb and finger straps several times did not help. If you have a normal to smaller hand, you may experience the same thing.

remove_circle_outlineCons: The laces have been tightened a few times. After I caught my grandsons pitching workout at a winter clinic, the laces were extremely loose in and around the web. I would rather have seen the open back made with a stiffer leather. I wonder if a younger catcher would have difficulty with the softer leather back!

Does the X2 Elite 33" model the right size for my 15 year old daughter? She's catching varsity this year.
Dad
Based on her age and position, our Glove Coach recommends a 33" mitt, so the Nokona X2 Elite Series (X2-3300) would be a great choice for her. It has a game ready feel, so it will be just about good to go right out of the box. The combination of Kangaroo and Stampede leather allows this glove to be softer yet very durable. This is a great choice for a varsity catcher.
Tessa
Is this glove a baseball or softball glove?
Arnold
The Nokona X2 Elite Series (X2-3300) is a baseball glove. The finger stalls and wrist opening will be designed for an adult male.
Joe
This shows used as well as new. Is this perhaps one that someone returned?
Catcher Jim
Yes, the used option is going to be a glove that somebody else has purchased, used, and returned back to us. The used 2016 Nokona X2 Elite Series Catcher's Mitt (X2-3300) that we have in stock right now (1/10/2017) is listed as excellent condition which means that it is very close to being in new condition.
Carter
What glove can a 16u softball catcher use?
maggie
A high school aged softball player would typically use a 33-34" catcher's mitt, so the Nokona X2 Elite Series Catcher's Mitt: X2-3300 would be a great option.

About the Brand

Joe Phillips writes about his visit to Nokona. It was like sitting in at the plantation party in Gone with the Wind or maybe gazing from the grandstand at the “Field of Dreams” while the Black Sox players tried to work out their idled muscle kinks. And, I was gently reminded by the lines in that movie while I dug into a delicious plate of North Texas barbecue: “threshing crews eating at outdoor tables. It continually reminds us of what once was, like an Indian-head penny in a handful of new coins. . . You talk a good dream.” And here I was. . . graciously invited into this magical and charming “Field of Glove-Making Dreams” in former Comanche Indian land at Nocona, Texas. It was a warm August evening, basked in a golden harvest moon, while friends and the Nokona family paid its kindly southern regards to two of their own and two of America’s finest but relatively obscure glove makers, Bobby Storey and Elvin Ray “Ab” Lemons. You see, the pair had just completed fifty years of time-honored employment with Nocona Athletic Goods, the last of the all-American made ball glove company's. The occasion brought echoes of past successes and human contentment, but in Nocona today you still experience much the same American texture of yesterday and perhaps a glimpse into tomorrow as well.

The two stately gentlemen were being honored in a way that could have taken place in the same manner when they first reported for full-time work at Nokona, in 1952, or back even earlier, in 1933 when the company started making sports equipment. During a brief and informal presentation at the celebration, Nokona’s new sales manager called the two glove makers “Legends - because that’s what their ball gloves stood for, American know-how and pride taken in a best-made product.”

A man of few words but a marveled craftsman who could literally conjure a sows ear into a playable baseball mitt, Mr. Lemons got up and fondly recalled the several men he worked with through his half-century and of the training that had been passed along to him from his old bosses.

His counter part and just as talented, Bobby Storey, had filled in at just about every job at Nokona. Bobby, the son of the sporting goods founder, R.E. “Bob” Storey had most recently served as president and now chairman of the board of Nokona. Though past retirement age like Mr. Lemons, he’s now serving at one of his favorite roles, that of ball glove designer.

At a time for employment in this country when five years is considered a long tenure with the same company, Ab and Bobby are not even the first to complete a half-century journey with Nocona Athletics. The now deceased Jewell Brickey, hit that milestone in 1993, after joining the company during World War II. That’s the kind of devotion that employees forge into this glove-making outfit. A devoted and sustained tenure here is not rare. Last year the company advertising, displayed along with Storey and Lemons, three other employees who had garnered 40 years with Nokona, Warren Clary, Bud Meekins, and Melvin Weedin.“

I don’t have to tell you that the one constant through all the years has been baseball”, wrote W.P. Kinsella. And the most constant of ball glove makers has been Nokona, and the men and women there who keep alive the tradition of American craftsmanship of ball glove making. The spirit of glove-making is still alive and well in Nocona, Texas.
