What customers say about "Key Specs"
Rawlings Gold Glove Series (RGGNP5) Opti-Core Baseball Gloves, 11.75"
  • Expensive but worth the investment if you love the game.
  • Awesome and unlike my A2K DP15 it doesn't scratch when you dive and hit the turf or dirt. Love it! If your serious about the game you should buy it.
  • I bought this a month a go and I'm so happy that I did...
  • Love my new glove. Best of the best right here.
  • Amazing glove my son loves it, broke it in in less than a week.
Rawlings Pro Preferred Glove Series
  • I also played a lot of catch with my buddies which is the best way to get it how you like it. I’ve had it a month and I feel this is by far the best glove I’ve ever owned.
  • I’m currently playing in college and would recommend this glove to everyone!
  • Amazing glove my son loves it, broke it in in less than a week.
  • Really nice golve. Looks better in real life than in the pictures.

What customers say about "Features"
Rawlings Gold Glove Series (RGGNP5) Opti-Core Baseball Gloves, 11.75"
  • Very nice glove but I feel Mizuno and Wilson top of the line gloves are better feel fit and finish in my opinion.
  • Extremely stiff but soft at the same time.
  • A little hard to break in properly, just be patient with it so you don't end up with creases in places you'll regret later.
  • A little difficult to break in, but that’s expected with a premium piece of leather.
Rawlings Pro Preferred Glove Series
  • Love the traditional 200 pattern of this glove.
  • Ive had a number of HOH gloves, and I have to say, I really like the leather of the Preferred over the HOH.
  • The close pattern is more of a thumb to pinky, and the glove will definitely take a while to break in
  • The Preferred has a much softer feel and the palm lining is a much better feel.
  • Like all Pro Preferred models, come extremely stiff but breaks in with some effort to form to your hand.
