I found myself with a datdude a2k and I only play catch with my son.. I thought the 11.5 fit looks a little small. I ended up trading it for a rawlings and thus system seven.. It was hard to get it on at first I had a long way to go to break in the index finger hole I had to use a wooden spatula round handle (works for getting those fingers going the way you want in your glove. Anyway this glove is awesome it has a hard leather back and a softer palm. And at 11.5 (mine is) it's bigger thank a2k and the rawlings gg elite and I feel this glove is going to be with me longer than any one of the four gloves I purchased this year. Mizuno mvp. Rawlings gg elite. Rawlings first base and the a2k..
