    Can you define “fingers jammed”?

    Do you mean repeatedly jamming the thumb, or jamming the other fingers, like you would playing basketball?

    DD's first glove when she was 10 (she is small and has long skinny fingers) was an All Star CMW2510. It was a great glove for her. No more stingers, an no problems with her thumbs. She struggled with a lot of other gloves being too heavy. She now uses an All Star CMW 4000 and loves it too.

    I would recommend the CMW3000. Jay Weaver once told me that it's the mitt he wished he had designed himself. High praise coming from him! That, plus my DD has had the same one the past 2 years of HS ball, TB ball and is now using it in college, it comes highly recommended in my book.

    Win the games you're supposed to, win some of the games you're not and make the rest of the teams know they've been in a battle to beat you.

    has complained about taking it on the thumb, as last issue was ring finger, says it feels like her nail is being ripped off (no bruising, swelling, etc). don't know exactly what she did, so best I can describe is she jammed it.

    I have heard that @Drakemir is jolly and would love to help your DD with a new Vinci!

    Ho Ho Ho... Sounds like a perfect fit for a Fortus.

    Couple of different colors available - but stick with the H web over the basket if you go with one - You will not find a higher quality glove at the price point out there - And send me a message and I can get you some holiday savings if you want.
