If anyone remembers Jay Buhner from the Mariners...great bat flip and no pitcher would say a word...haha

But man, those Koreans let the flip fly...they prob don't get pegged much there :)

I've seen clips of Jay Buhner play. He was so good to watch.

My dad and I watched some of those KBO games over the spring and summer. Those games were so different.

I can't watch Japanese & Korean baseball, I lose my mind screaming at the TV for them all to be still so I can see what kind of gloves they're wearing! 🙃 They're a little more difficult (a lot) to identify than the normal Rawlings, Wilson, and Mizuno's we see here on TV!
I still enjoy watching some of those Japanese and Korean baseball games. It blew my mind since it was so culturally different from anything I've seen before. I think its different seeing a small ball mentality to offense than what we're used to seeing with big bomb homeruns like we see Mike Trout or Acuna and soforth hit. But man, do they flash some leather on defense especially in Korea.

Yeah, a lot of Aso lab Wilson's and Wilson Shield gloves. Plus you'll see Zett gloves and Mizunos you won't see here much

If you do some searches here, you'll see 20/25 different Asian gloves I've posted before! I was on buying a IP Select kick for a while, I'd still love to own one!

You said you followed Dan Davis, he is an importer for Glove Works which is a South Korean glove manufacturer. You can get a glove from him pretty easily I'd bet.
There was an exchange student from Japan that had me clean up a Zett glove for him a few years ago. He also had a Wilson Shield label glove that was more intricate than any of the Wilson's I saw here. The Zett was beat to heck, kid said they played in the rain there so the color had faded a lot since he got hit. He had me relace the thing in neon green and neon pink glove lace and the glove was yellow, orange, teal and purple. Almost made me dizzy
Was a few phones ago so I don't have any photos of it. Would like to see some other Zett gloves to see if they were all that bright. The lacing pattern was similar to what you'd see in Nike ShaDo Elite gloves, odd pinky, thumb and palm runs

Here’s my GW x Davis Relacing 12.25” I-web. Super nice glove!
