Check out the Rawlings Silverback gloves, they break in quick... lacing doesn't last long but for the money it's one of the best gloves out there... they run around 60 bucks.

I picked up a worth silencer down in Florida this year for $50. Came pretty loose to start with and broke in easily after that.

Take a look at the Worth Liberty. Decent glove for about $75. The next step up from that is the Worth Liberty Advanced and the retail for $175, but can be found much cheaper. Look on the other equipment for sale thread on SBF.

Yeah heard about these rodriguez gloves. What makes them so good?

The Worth Liberty gloves look nice and seem to be around what I am looking for. I got a glove last year shit just doesn't break in and stiff, even after I cooked it twice in the oven.

When high grade leather is used, it takes awhile to break in. I have a Liberty Advanced and its still stiff as shit after 6 months of trying breaking it in.

Don't put your glove in the oven. This dries out the leather. To break it in, you need to soften it 3 or 4 times with oil/conditioning cream and form it while soft. Then play catch in between treatments.

go with regular shaving cream (not the gel) it works 10x better
