I wish I had an limited amount of funds, but with having to buy a catcher's mitt too, I have to have a budgetLooks like you just missed out on a killer sale Walmart had on high-end Mizuno’s.
They do still have this one.......
Probably over budget, see what Drakemir could do a 12” JSJS with a MEO24 hinged single post web for? Being a custom I’m sure it’s over your budget. How about a standard JSJS? Maybe he’s feeling generous?
I could have given you plenty of options till you capped your budget at $150!
Thank you Lemond! Those are probably excellent gloves, great patterns, but please note.........these are NOT the same Small Batches as the one I have listed, these are Japanese tanned leather, but excellent I’m sure, like a HOH.This guy ^^^^^^^ will NOT steer you wrong. If you have some time, explore some of his threads and you will learn quite a bit (from my personal and recent experiences)!
If your DD is looking like she will carry the sport into HS, get her as nice a glove now as you think she will tolerate outing in the work to break in. (low price/quality = nice and comfy now, so little break in effort required, but will last a season or so. High quality will hit you in the pocket, and take more time/effort to break in, but will last a lot longer, and not fall apart.)
@ANNASDAD, had I not been looking for a modified trap glove almost exclusively, I was going to ask you what you thought about the Easton Small Batch gloves that are half price on SBF. https://www.softballfans.com/equipment/fielding-gloves/easton-small-batch.html
I doubt they are of the same ilk as the ones you have mentioned in the past, but are they worth a look at $125?
