The creation of the US Patented Reptilian® Design Series by Akadema Professional is a combination of technology meeting evolution. This revolutionary web, pocket, and near fingerless design has many features to separate it from the normal baseball glove.The appearance and performance of the Reptilian® Design Series will make all other baseball gloves extinct.The Reptilian's near fingerless design creates a natural air pocket which acts as a shock absorber for initial ball impact, making glove to hand transfer smoother and quicker. When the ball initially hits the glove, it makes a depression that allows the ball to sit longer in the glove. The near fingerless design also acts as a shovel for easier ground ball scooping. With virtually no breaking points within the pocket, the Reptilian® is designed to keep its unique shape longer than a regular glove. Taking the baseball world by storm, this series currently maintains its position as the world's hottest selling glove line. With attention to quality and design, Akadema and the Reptilian® stand poised to revolutionize the way baseball is played.Features include:12.5" Reptilian PatternB-Hive WebGrasp Clasp Wrist SystemOpen BackDesigned for Infielders and PitchersPlease specify Right or Left hand throw when ordering.To view other Akadema Baseball Gloves designed for infielders please click here.To view other Akadema Baseball Gloves designed for pitchers please click here.Don't forget to use Akadema's Mitt Masher and Glove Conditioner to help break in your glove!
