Question for you glove gurus and Easton guys....

What's your favorite Easton fielders glove (both infield and outfield) and catchers mitt for high level women's fastpitch? I seem to recall some discussion of their lineup here a while back and what some of the differences were but couldn't find it again thru the search function. The baseball lineup seems to have more higher end gloves than fastpitch but I'm not sure I'm seeing all their options. Thx in advance for your thoughts and opinions on this!

I know I posted here awhile back about the Small Batch Program from the Glove Cowboy, but those were BB gloves, awesome BB gloves though!! I posted here about the Kip leather Mako LE series 1B mitts when there was a vendor who had them on a crazy closeout. I know that JBG's has the 12.75" Legacy Elite on sale for $150.00 off the original price, killer deal but again a BB glove.

Doubt that helped, definitely not the most knowledgeable on Easton gloves! Why Easton, sponsored team? If not a sponsorship, I'd stick with Vinci, All-Star, or the Liberty series for a catchers mitt!

You got it... The Vinci's have been good to us overall although I've gotta say that I'm disappointed in the laces (and the changes they've made to just eliminate the mid-finger laces due to breakage), just seems that they'd seriously look at upgrading that issue. The fit and quality of the overall glove is fantastic though from our experience (and we have 4 of them). Also, my catcher DD is using a Rawlings Liberty mitt right now and seems to really have taken to it (it started as a backup to the Vinci), we got a steal of a deal on it and its working out well so far. No idea of how long it will hold up though...
Thx!

I’ve complained about their laces for years now, doubt they’ll ever change! Rous has a RV1961 of mine now, that’ll be my first ever Vinci with mid-finger lacing. Well my first one on purpose.......they made a mistake on a 12” custom awhile back and put mid-finger lace in it, they made it right though!

I've posted this link before. DD has used the same Easton Core 12.25 for 3 years now. She'll probably use it for her senior year of college. It's been a great glove and still holds it's shape really well. I posted links for a 12", 12.25" and 12.5" models. For $44.90 including shipping you won't find a better glove.

I'm interested in the Easton Stealth PRO. I can't find any reviews. DD has used the synergy gloves and loves them. Wondering if she would like the Stealth PRO. It's getting time for a new glove and the Easton's are on sale.

Older dd’s college team Easton glove looked very similar to younger dd’s custom A2000. The leather felt similar. BUT... I didn’t put my hand in it, didn’t use it, don’t know much about gloves.

The Stealth Pro gloves look nice but haven't handled one yet, they seem very similar to the Core lineup but there has to be a difference in materials, stays, etc.? The baseball series (at least the Williamsport & the Legacy Elite) also look pretty decent and have some features DD likes but again, no direct experience with them.

Hey Tatonka, what size fielders glove you looking for? I know in your OP, you said infield and outfield. I just went to Easton's site, I swear I'm having a pretty hard time seeing a glove I'd actually spend my money on! The Small Batch program from Glove Cowboy are baseball gloves only for now, not sure if Eric/Easton has any plans for a fastpitch line?

The pro uses Kip leather.
