Catcher's mitts have to endure a level of abuse during a game that is completely unmatched by any other position on the field. Catcher's mitts are pound incessantly throughout the entire course of the game, and this can wear these gloves down. This constant abuse is why it is so important for all catchers to take their mitts seriously. If you are a catcher, it just doesn't pay to buy a cheap catcher's mitt.
This mitt has a number of benefits over other mitts in this price range. First of all, the glove is constructed out of some of the toughest leather being used in mitts today. Bio Throwback leather is known as a rugged and comfortable alternative to stiffer and thicker mitts. ParaShock palm lining allows the glove to absorb the shock of a catch, saving your hand and your sensitivity. This palm liner also helps to dampen the rebound of the ball once it hits your mitt. This saves you from having the ball bounce right off of your palm and into the ground.
