Catchers mitt for 14u, $150 or less?

Thanks everyone for all your suggestions!

Another newbie mitt question. As far as sizing, it looks like the options are 33 and 34. Is one more recommended then the other?

Would you be willing to share how much you found it for? The cheapest I've found so far is $134. I'm sure there were really great deals on black Friday, unfortunately we didn't know how much DD would like catching till right around then.
$134 is still a good price for a mitt as well built and widely accepted as that Rawlings Liberty Advanced. Go for it!

edit to add: FWIW, my DD has the 34". She has average to slightly above sized hands. Honestly I'm not sure if there's a difference in the size of the hand/finger stalls between the 33 & the 34"?

I think either 33 or 34 would be ok as I've seen a lot of both on 14u catchers hands. But the 34 is a little roomier. I have medium/large man hands and would definitely get the 34. It is also often recommended for bucket Dads which is why I've tried them on myself.

it starts to fray around the pinky loop holes. And then it starts to fray up the seems of the finger backs. It just looks bad for a glove that isn't cheap. I've bought all 3 of mine used but still with tags so I got them on a deal so it wasn't necessarily by choice. If I was ordering I would take a leather back every time.
My DD’s mesh JVC34 hasn’t has this issue. She’s had hers for 3 years.

DD (2007), medium sized hands for age, loves her AS CMW3000. we got the single post rather then the CMW4000 double post because it seemed like that would not work with her sized hands. no issues as far as catching pitchers throwing heat (caught lessons for 14u player starting to hit 60). took some breaking in, and I did have to tighten some lacing up after break in.

We got it from Amazon for 112.49. Originally 149.99 with 25% off for Black Friday.
