The catcher mitt is the best out there and you should get your now or else it will be gone, great pocket and fantastic leather, pro mesh makes it a lot lighter and very durable.
Great glove. Solid leather. Glove is very stiff but after 2 couple oil treatments and playing lots of catch it was ready to go. Love the nylon back which reduces overall weight.
This is an amazing glove with a great and comfortable shape, and great protection. Having said that, make sure you practice proper glove maintenance because you could buy a $500 glove, but if you don't break it in properly and maintain it it will flop and crease on you. Watch Wilson's glove guru, Aso, to learn how to break it in the right way. Don't steam it or stick it under your mattress as it will not form a good pocket. To maintain it, always keep a ball in the glove (in the pocket that you form) to keep its shape. Most importantly, play a lot of catch so that it will mold to the shape of your hand. With all this, you will have yourself a great glove that will give you a lot of miles. I love mine and would hesitate to buy anything but a Rawlings.
My old glove was an a2000 and for what I've seen so far in this glove I like this way better. It is a good fit and very lightweight and comfortable. It was a reasonably fast break in time and by saying that, I'm hoping it doesn't get too floppy too fast. For a 34" glove, it feels a little small but the size of it is a nice size to comfort and control. I like the idea of the proof padding, I can't feel anything if I take an 80mph fastball off the palm. I would say someone could catch 95mph off the palm and you wouldn't get a large sting. The thing I needed to get used to was the mesh. It feels a bit different at first on my finger that is out but I got used to it in about a week. Overall, this is the best glove I have ever had and I would recommend it to anybody.
