to all the posters on this thread. Thank you!!! Never before have I wanted to buy a new catcher's mitt more than now. Just for me, my DD's don't catch, but I now have the bug to get ME another one...... Really cool looking designs and gloves. Santa Claus may be coming.....

Just do it ;)

My CMW3000 served me very well, it was a great mitt, and a great purchase for me, however if I could do it all over again and DD was 14 or 15, I’d definitely order myself a custom Rawlings mitt!

The XRD is put in every Liberty Glove and I have taken about 50 of those gloves apart in the last year or so and every XRD pad is in at least a dozen pieces and they're loose, flopping all over the inside of the glove.
The leather palm pad will stay together and is hopefully sewen to one or the other layers of the palm.
What will keep the palm in shape is the palm adhesive and how well it is applied to the glove. It will eventually dry up and lose its adhesion and need to be reapplied but I recommend relacing a glove every year anyway and any decent palm adhesive will last well more than a year.
