Akadema's Praying Mantis Softball Gloves:
With new patent "Stress Wedge" technology, located between the index finger and thumb, the Praying Mantis Catcher's Mitt offers shock-absorbing protection for the hand against injury and sting when receiving the ball. The Praying Mantis also offers two additional "Finger Hammocks" allowing the fingers to be firmly positioned and more secure in the glove. Additional features include the "Double-sided Slim Padding" allowing increased pocket size and easier ball retention. The uniquely designed shape allows the throwing hand easier access into the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove to hand transfer and faster times throwing to second base. The Praying Mantis also features a "Double Flexhinge" which makes the glove snap closed on contact.

I recently purchased this glove for my 16 year old daughter as she outgrew her 33" catching mitt. This mitt is 34.5" and it is much easier to catch the faster pitchers with movement. It has a different feel to it initially but the glove breaks in easily.
