Akadema Praying Mantis 33" Baseball Catcher's Mitt

Praying Mantis 33" with new patented Stress Wedge technology. Located between the index finger and thumb, the Praying Mantis offers shock absorbing protection for the hand against injury and sting when receiving the ball. The Praying Mantis also offers two additional Finger Hammocks, allowing the fingers to be firmly positioned and more secure in the glove.

Additional features include the Double-sided Slim Padding allowing for increased pocket size and easier ball retention. Uniquely designed shape allows the throwing hand easier access into the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove to hand transfer and faster times to second base. The Praying Mantis also features a Double Flexhinge which makes the glove snap closed on contact.

The latest glove series by Akadema uses Precision Kip leather that is 20% lighter and tighter grained than steerhide. The hides are harvested in Europe and tanned in Japan. The gloves are more pliable, easier to break in and have more tensile strength than our competitors glove line.

    Comments about Akadema Praying Mantis 33" Baseball Catcher's Mitt:

    My son had problems with other mitts, jamming thumb from foul balls or just taking a pitch on the thumb padding. We switched to the Praying Mantis and he has never had another jammed thumb in 2 years of use. The only catchers mitt he will use.
