Worst case scenario is the pinky stall feels lose if you go back to the five finger way. I wear my glove pretty lose, quite a bit of palm still showing, so the stalls aren't really broken in yet anyway.

I have an A2000 OT6 and it feels to me that it adds an extra little 'pocket' above where my index and middle finger go. I'll take all the help I can get.

Easier to close a stiffer glove, deeper pocket, I feel like the glove plays wider, and I like the way it closes better.

Some gloves won't work with TIP but I've never had an issue with a Vinci or most others, just old patterns like the PRO-H and XXL. Only other con is you'll never want to go back or buy a used glove that was broken in traditional.

This went a lot different than I expected. I play with three in the pinky an I have a few instances where the glove pops off but I'm so used to the position that all feels weird now.

Some of mine will work w three in, I find that I need really tight batting gloves but am gonna switch to all smalls. I have half a dozen semi broken if gloves that I wanna get ready to game and this seems to really help.
