Best brand of glove?


#1

I think it may be rawlings
what do you think?


#2

I prefer Wilson, I had a Rawlings when I was younger but, ever since I’ve used Wilson. Currently I use a Wilson A700.


#3

well it depends on the person BUT if you like soft leather go wilson and rawlings PRIMO if you like tight leather then go with Rawlings Pro Perfered. I have had alot of very nice pro gloves and I really like the rawlings Pro Perfered over the Wilson A2000 and Wilson A2k series.


#4

I have a rawlings gold glove pro preferred 1st baseman glove and love it.


#5

has anyone heard of Glovesmith? They’re suppose to rival the Rawlings heart of the hides series in the 90s.


#6

Rawlings FTW!!!


#7

I need a new glove because my old one fell apart (but it still works for just some throwing or just catch…)

And I want to know a cheap yet effective glove to get.


#8

I use a Wilson A2000

berlincatcher,

If you’re wanting a catcher’s mitt, the Rawlings mitts are good. However, you should also check into the Akadema Praying Mantis.


#10

ZETT, if you can still find them. Rawlings are good, obviously. And a lot of big leaguers use Wilson. But I find Wilson to be a little too “thick” and heavy. Nikes and the new Reeboks are too light. Akadema also falls into that category of being too light. Nokaona (sp?) makes great catchers mitts, but I wouldn’t get one for pitching.

Just my opinion.


#11

I use a Nokona for pitching and I like it a lot. The only other glove I’d used for pitching was a crappy Nike glove.


#12

whats so bad about a light glove

yea i also think rawling’s are good i find them to be very durable


#13

I’ve always liked Nike and Rawlings


#14

Wilson


#15

ive always used rawlings, but my friend just got a nokona american pro and i was using it today and it was a really nice weight for pitching. i would have the same thing only its 11.5in not 12


#16

akadema

try to find a rawlings mark of a pro. they are only around $60. ive been using one for the past 3 years and its held up nicely


#18

I need to get off this forum board and get to work, but this is more interesting…

…anyhow, I gotta go with Zett. I got one 12 years ago, and I still use it.

I also have a Nokona that I really like that was given to me as a gift.


#19

i use a mizuno, its quite light tho


#20

i had a easton and broke it… It had awesome padding… umm have had a Rawlings for bout 7 yrs now and hardly ever use it… bought a spalding and love the glove… especially for 20 bucks.
