I’ve never handled a Horween glove until now, and all I can say is wow! I have a lot of high end gloves that I’ll occasionally rotate, I think this glove just became my go to. It is stiff, but with just a little mallet work it’s really loosened up. I only have one other glove (A2K) that truly feels like an extension of my arm, but this glove felt that way straight out of the box.
This is a one of a kind piece of leather. From the quality, build, feel and smell everything about this screams high quality. Stock on the shelf HoH gloves aren't in the same class as this horween HoH. The pro1000 pattern is incredible and is perfect for the 3B/Utility man (the perfect balance of being deep but not too deep).
This is the type of glove I used to dream about when I was a kid. Thanks to Don Mortons and Ballgloves.com for making the child inside me come out again in my thirties!
