I’m not so worried about tipping pitches as I would be about simply keeping the ball itself out of sight as long as you can. Lots of pitchers step on the rubber the ball in their exposed hand and then spin the ball in plain view. This allows the batter to begin concentrating on the ball.
The most important thing at 10U is getting gear that fits. Can’t tell you how many parents have bought bats and gloves that are too large (or small). This should be your biggest concern at this age.
My 10U DD pitcher likes the modified trap web. You really can't see the grip and it makes it easy to break in.
I checked Vinci’s site and eBay to see if there was an 11.75” Fortus series listed, nope! If it were my 10U player I’d probably lean towards one of these.
I almost never recommend a glove with velcro but both of these seem like a great glove / pattern for a 10U fastpitch player! I do recommend the H-web and conventional open back over the fastback and single post web. I just think both of those options are more versatile, just my opinion.........or I just like those two options more personally

probably went the complete wrong direction on this one.. lol I went with 11.75 split solid web bandito. No Velcro, not very attractive either.. lol but I think it might work and if not Bradley will take it back and get us something else. This wasn't the glove he recommended, but he did think it would be fine and she is dead set on the closed web. She liked the modified trap better but none in stock. Truth be told nothing is more beautiful than function to me so time will tell. I am worried about the wrist strap, she has never not had a Velcro stap I keep imagining the glove going flying off in her wind up... lol In about a month or so he is gonna be realeasing all kinds of cool colors and patterns, but I couldn't wait any long, spring has sprung and she needs a glove yesterday.. Ill keep you guys posted
And by the way thank you guys for all of your opinions and insight, I do appreciate the time you guys take out of your day to help a newb..
Let us know how it turns out when you get the glove. DD loves hers, but I have been careful not to let he see some of the newer offerings. DD would go nuts for this one.
Can't wait to see what else he has coming out.
