When you are looking for a glove that will provide you with a unique look and feel while providing exceptional performance, this is the glove for you. While there are a number of great features that make this glove one of the best on the market, one of the most impressive is its use of the renowned Bloodline leather. The functionality this leather imparts really is a game changer in the world of baseball. Bloodline leather is manufactured using a time-intensive vacuum drying process that produces a very unique material. This leather is a full-grain leather that has a slightly waxy and smooth texture that is very supple. The leather is still tough enough that you'll need to give a decent amount of time to breaking it in, but it's worth the time. The 11.5-inch pattern is a great size for infielders and pitchers, though this model is optimized for infield players. The trapeze web provides an exceptional level of durability and a wide range of flex without adding a bunch of weight to the glove.
