Hey everybody! I need some help choosing a glove. What I’m looking for is a 11.5 inch custom middle infielder’s glove with mesh or something like it. I’ve narrowed my selections down to 3 choices:
SSK Mesh Series
Wilson A2000 1786 Superskin
Wilson A2000 DP15 Superskin
There all about the same price, so my choice comes down to
I’d like for y’all to rate the look of the gloves from 1-10 (my school colors are navy and vegas gold. Then tell me anything you know about them (from experience, what ever). Thanks!
Here’s a little more info on each glove:
These gloves have been around in Japan for years, they just started marketing in the U.S. There mesh just came out… it’s available in colors other then black, which I haven’t found anywhere else. The mesh is supposed to reduce the weight of the glove 10%+

It appears to be similar to the 1786, except this is Dustin Pedroia’s customized version. It has
-Reduced heel padding for maximum feel (ouch?)
-Smaller hand openiing
I give no picture because on Wilson’s glove customizer it appears the same as the 1786.
