Akadema Torino Mantis 33" Baseball Catcher's Mitt

With new patent "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. With a light tan palm and a chocolate brown shell, the Torino Series performs even better than it looks.

Akadema's newest glove line features kip leather that enables the Torino Series to be 20% lighter, yet just as durable as US steerhide gloves. The Torino Series gloves break in quickly and are more durable than our competitors.

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

This is a very good glove great padding it is a little hard to break in but what do you expect it is a catchers glove. It is not my Wilson Pudge A2000 but will serve the purpose. Great buy for the price.
