Honestly nothing wrong with the Shut Out series gloves. Very reasonably priced especially if you buy previous years mitts. Little on the heavy side with good padding which is good for catching. We have a 2015 fielders mitt and it was heavily used and is still in good shape. We just went with a bigger size and “better” glove. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised if Rawlings is still using the same leather and padding in newer models.Thanks, I ended up finding a few gloves on AdStarr. They had a few that were for 12U (she’s 10), so I ordered a Rawlings shut out to try. Obviously it isn’t going to be great glove, but I at least need something for her to practice with and it shouldn’t take much break in. If she handles it well and coach leaves her at catcher, I will upgrade to a better glove. I’m still feeling like I should have got a middle of the road quality 12” or 12-1/2” 1B mitt, as I expect the above glove’s padding will likely be the equivalent of that.
