A note about the Wilson A2000 and Vinci JCV34...The solid web makes for a shallow pocket. If your DD is coming from a mitt with a deep pocket (Mizuno, for example), she may not like the feel of the shallow pocket. This was definitely an issue for my DD with the Vinci, and she almost gave up on it. I replaced the solid web with an H-web (from Vinci), and that made all the difference for her.

If you go Vinci, the best way to start the break in is to open it up and work the palm pad that's attached to the felt. Get rid of the palm adhesive while you are there too because as you break it in it will be prone to leaving ridges in the palm. I've actually taken the inner felt that has the leather palm pad stitched to it and folded it over and ironed it. It will help the break in process a ton. Sounds ridiculous but really works.
