Thanks, bmakj. Are you referring to this one?unless she is catching really hot pitchers for 10u, you could try Mizuno prospects softball mitt. it is pretty easy to close, no extensive break in needed, and you can get it for 50 bucks new.
yes, that is the one. and it pretty much is ready to use right way. I rubbed in some oil, we played catch for a while, and she was comfortable with it.Thanks, bmakj. Are you referring to this one?

A Vinci JCV-VM will be WAY too much for an 8yo newbie catcher to handle. For young hands, it will be impossible to close, and too heavy to handle effectively.

Mitt looked pretty new so might be something to look into. It was located in Shadow Hills, CA. Here’s what the listing said:
Vinci Softball catchers glove. This glove is almost new never been on the field and still needs to be broken in. VINCI 33” JCV-VM Fastpitch Catcher's Mitt
