Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced a previosu AGC 98 This was to replace another AGC98. After 2 years (year round) the padding was somewhat worn out from catching 70MPH+ fastballs from 13 year olds. He could feel it on old one when catching 14 year old whom throws 78 MPH consistently. In Florida we play year round so this is still a great glove value and it is saved many games (and developed my son) with the praying mantis hinge. That extra is the difference on a passed ball or a caught 3rd strike. I have rawlings mizuno and eastons and all the kids love this mitt more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for protection & picky catchers My son has broken his thumb three times and sprained it once (catching). He needed a glove that offers the highest level of protection for the thumb. He is also highly picky about his equipment. He has always caught his a Mizuno Prospect GXC 100 mitt with Power Close. His "old" Mizuno mitt was still in great shape when we bought this new mitt, but he loved this one right away and started breaking it in at practice and using it. It says not to, but we used the hot glove treatment and a little oil on it to break it in, and within one practice and my husband working it back and forth for about an hour and half, it was ready for games. He didn't drop anything, even during the breaking-in practice. It is shaped for easy ball transfer. He hasn't used it enough to tell if the protection is real, but it does have more padding in that area than any other mitt. The only odd thing about it, which doesn't affect performance, is that there is a small notch on the edge about 2 o'clock that makes the glove look smaller than it is. But we held it up to his Mizuno, and it's exactly the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far great Used right out the box for 1 inning. Still needs breaking in,but was still usable. Seems a little small but measures up against my Mizuno. Extremely comfortable and after 2 weeks is better than any mitt I have owned. I am definitely sold on Akedema.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good glove. My 9 year son plays catcher on his little league team and he like his glove. He did have one fault with the glove it did not have a risk adjustment strap. Other than that he was happy with the catcher met.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from See before you buy First, my 10 year old grandson could not get his small hand into the mitt. The finger slot for the little finger and the ring finger was so tight he could not get even one finger in.The second thing is the online add flamed the mitt was made in the USA. When the mitt arrived it had a tag stating it was made in China.I returned thr mitt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not even worth the small amount Have now had Just less than a year and thumb is ripping. The glove treated 3 times in the steamer and still very stiff. I caught through college and my son wants t catch but the glove is useless. I need to tell him it’s was a poor glove. Save the money and buy a better glove.
