First of all, I really think there are better glove options than A2000 available. Unfortunately dd really wants an A2000 and her dream school is sponsored by the Evil Empire.
I have poked around the Wilson site. I know we are not ordering “superskin” and I believe we will get the extra stiff leather unless that seems like a bad idea to glove experts here. (We have months to do break in.) We have tried on enough gloves to know she wants 11 3/4”.
So... Looking at the site, the only 11 3/4 fastpitch glove is the FP1175. It has Velcro wrist strap. I think the Velcro is a no-go.
The “baseball” model 1787 has a regular wrist strap and is described as follows: “The A2000 1787 is perfect for dual position players who spend time at SS and 3B. The pocket is a little deeper than the A2000 1786 making it easier to snag line drives while still allowing for the flattened, flared break in that helps with quick transfers.”
She does like her wrist strap tight. Her current glove has Velcro. She takes a new glove out of the box, cranks it tight and it never moves. I think I can recreate that by moving the laces to the tightest position. (Lots of Youtube vids on this).
Anybody have any input on this deal?
