Akadema Catchers Mitt - The Praying Mantis
The Praying Mantis Pattern on the APM42 is both functional and stylish. The pattern comes specifically built to meet the needs of the serious catcher. The Spiral Lock Web is included in the Akadema Precision APM42 to help assist young catchers with keeping the ball secure. Holding the ball secure in the pocket is the number one job of any webbing. The Spiral Lock Web works well in that it does not weigh the glove down. It also does not crease it poorly but instead helps create a secure and consistent close.
Special Stress Wedge Technology creates an additional layer of padding between the top layer of leather and the player's hand. This special technology also widens the opening of the Akadema catchers mitt to create a wider target for the pitcher and the catcher's job a little bit easier as a result. Without adding too much weight or overloading it with features, Akadema has created a player friendly catchers mitt perfect for the serious backstop looking for an equipment upgrade.
Make sure when breaking in this Akadema catchers mitt that you avoid adding abrasive oils or soaps to the leather. This not only dries out the leather but actually weighs the mitt down, limiting it's effectiveness and player's reaction time.
