Nokona X2 Elite Fastpitch Softball Catchers Mitt RHT X2F-3250C
The Nokona X2 Elite Fastpitch catcher's mitt is the highest performance glove on the market. The X2 is made from a proprietary blend of Stampede cowhide leather, a new full grain, full oil steer hide leather, and Kangaroo leather which is strong, durable and light weight. The leather blend means less break-in time for the glove, since it’s softer than most other glove leathers, but durable and will stand up to repeated use.
The X2 is also made using the Nokona Nolera Composite padding system, which offers an extra thick area of padding giving players extra cushion for the high speed pitches received at this position. Made using the Texas trap webbing, this unique webbing allows the mitt to wrap around the ball when it comes in contact with the webbing, keeping it in the glove.
Unlike other gloves, when catcher's are blocking a low pitch, the Nokona does not flex backwards, keeping the ball from getting past the pitcher. This gives catcher's better catching performance. The top of the line glove does come with a top of the line price around $450, but offers the best performance, quality and durability on the market.
