Got the glove for Christmas and was really impressed with the quality. Lots of leather padding in the palm and a nice soft back. My 11 yr old daughter loves it. Her pitcher throws in the low 40s and her old glove was stinging (with a batting glove underneath). In the first two practices she had no issues with stinging and the glove is really breaking in nicely.
HQ\'s price is unbeatable too. I would recommend this glove for the price range.
