Weather: This glove is an All-Weather glove, once you peel the plastic off and pre-wash it, the glove will get better after wearing several times, however its still amazingly sticky out of the package (like seriously stick to the wall sticky). If you aren't sure what the weather will be, the West Coast Exclusive German 4mm Any-Weather Supreme Latex is perfect.
Grip: This latex is super sticky 4mm German Supreme Latex is one of the top Latex's used in the world, it will provide amazing grip and provide great feel for the ball, it works best when slightly dampened. (the chemicals in the latex are activated). It does also get better as you break it in, and wear it!
CUT: Roll Finger /Gunn Cut- This cut is designed to put maximum latex in direct contact with the ball during the catch. It provides room in the fingers and features a open stitch in the middle two fingers for increased flexibility and comfort. This cut will provide a good cushion as you catch the ball, while still providing great touch. The Positive Stitch in the middle fingers is a modern touch that increases durability and provides more comfort on this modern Roll Finger Glove.

Neoprene does need to be fully dried after wearing for best extended use! a first for any West Coast Glove. Neoprene entry creates an easier glove to put on and off.
Backhand: 3mm German Super Soft with ergonomically designed break points along the backhand provide maximum flexibility, while keeping the hands in a natural position when flexing and catching. We have also added our signature Memory Foam lining to the backhand- it makes the glove more comfortable, but also helps in greatly reducing the shock on the hands when you catch!

Finger Saves Provide excellent protection and flexes and forms to your hand for maximum protection against injury. Quickly remove them for a lighter more flexible glove!
