This is a great glove. Construction is well made. I purchased for my 14 year old and he loves it. Great, deep pocket that really funnels the ball into it. (He loves the colors too, not that this matters for performance). Would highly recommend it. It does come pretty stiff and takes a decent amount of work to break in. It isn't as easy to break in as his outfield HOH glove but, none the less, he still really likes it.
