Default Softball Glove Question

Akadema Fastpitch 34 in Fastpitch Catchers Mitt | AEA 65 | Baseball Bargains

My daughter is making a transition from outfielder to catchers so she needs cacthers glove. What do you guys think of this one? I'm looking for a glove that's cheap, but durable. All suggestions are welcome.

I can help you with a Vinci if you're interested. Can check out some options at Women's Fast Pitch Gloves by Vinci and we can discuss which would be best for your daughter.

I think the most important factor MATERIAL

Most all baseball gloves are made out of some kind of animal hide. Just like other goods that are made out of hides such as leather, there are definitely different quality levels of these products. It is no different with product and you must purchase one that is made with quality animal hide.

The better the quality of hide and leather that goes into making a quality one the more soft and supple it will feel. This will make it easier to catch that is thrown to you or hit to you. A softer one will close around the game as it enters into the product and make it easier to hang on to.

The material affects more than just your catching ability too. The higher the quality of the leather or hide that goes into a product the more durable that it will be and the longer it will last you.
