APM-66 – Right Hand Throw Or Left Hand Throw Available
Designed for: Catcher
Glove Color: Black with light Gray lacing
The Akadema APM-66 is designed with a 34” circumference pattern, a Spiral-Lock web, a closed back and Akadema’s exclusive Grasp-Clasp wrist system, and a deep pocket designed for the serious fastpitch softball catcher.
With new patent pending "Stress Wedge" technology, located between the index finger and thumb, the Praying Mantis offers shock absorbing protection for the hand against injury and sting when receiving the ball. The Praying Mantis design 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 for increased pocket size and easier ball retention. These features make the APM-66 a great girls softball glove. The uniquely designed shape allows the throwing hand easier access into the pocket, resulting in a quicker glove to hand transfer and faster pop times to second base. The Praying Mantis also features a "Double Flexhinge" which makes the glove snap closed on contact.
Hand-crafted with select U.S. Steerhide in the pocket, AkademaLyte leather on the back, and Akadema ¼” Rawhide gray lacing. The Akadema APM-66 is one of the best softball gloves available today!
Created for the Serious Competitive Fastpitch Player!
