Akadema APP240 Design Series 33.5" Baseball Catcher's Mitt
Akadema Design Series 33.5" Faspitch Catcher's Mitt
The Akadema patented Praying Mantis is the most innovative catcher's mitt ever to hit the market, with many unique features setting it apart from the competition. It offers shock absorbing protection for the hand against injury and sting when receiving the ball. The uniquely designed shape allows the throwing hand easier access into the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove to hand transfer and faster times to second base. The Praying Mantis also features a "Double Flexhinge" which makes the glove snap closed on contact.
Fastpitch Design Series
Created to satisfy the needs of the competitive fastpitch player, the Akadema Fastpitch Design Series is hand-crafted to increase the level of play on the field. Constructed of US Steerhide throughout the pocket and webbing, the back of the glove features exclusive AkademaLyte leather, decreasing the overall weight of the glove and allowing for a faster break-in period and a more manageable feel. Smaller finger stalls are used to decrease the distance between the thumb and index finger and the Grasp-Clasp wrist system allows for increased playability.
