I guess I don't understand. I thought Rawlings was the vendor. I placed my order on Rawlings and they said I would get it in June. It came in May. I was pleased with the transaction.
Sorry about the confusion. It was so nice to get the order confirmation number, a link to check on status and and estimated delivery date from Rawlings.

Custom designed, ordered, and shipped within 3 weeks! Just in time as my old Worth Liberty Advanced was starting to fall apart.

I ordered it with zero break in. It was as stiff as a brick when it took it out of the very nice box that it came in, but after an hour of work, I think I can warm up my daughter tomorrow!

YES SIR!!!

That was quick, I’ve never come close to getting a custom in 3 weeks!

Beautiful mitt Ken, great job! How’s it fit your hand?
Not even close! It was a workout to get my hand in! It’s getting better. Really excited about the extra protection.

That is beautiful!!!

You will be envy of every dad sitting on a bucket.

Well not me. :p


Ken, mine is getting better by the day, but still a bit stiff. Which is ok, as I'm not playing competitively or anything.

We get a nice, healthy "WHAP" when I catch a fastball right in the pocket. And I rarely feel a thing, as the glove is a beast. Only problem I have is I just can't get it very open with my hand. Guess it'll just take more time.

Enjoy!

My hand is out of the glove a bit more than I'm used to, but I've always been a "shove my hand in as far as it will go" type. Way beyond normal, so it's good for me to have a bit more hand out of the glove.

The first catchers mitt I bought was the Liberty Advanced as it was the only mitt I could find that fit my mongo-sized hand. I’m hoping that this one will eventually fit just as well since I think it’s cut with the same pattern.

I was able to warm up pitchers with it prior to our first game, but my hand hurt too much to use it prior to the second game. I’m pretty confident that with a little more work, I’ll be a very happy camper!
