Double Up

Posted on May 3, 2009 at 12:05am 0 Comments

Before you go and your hard earned dough on that Bloodline, A2K, or Pro Preferred check out this great deal from Meyvn. For the price you pay for one of those played out, over priced, corporate looking gloves you’ve been eying in some catalog, you might be able to Double Up on a fresh new Meyvn Glove.

Cool! Yes, they've come a long way from the cheap-quality vinyl versions. I've been reading that the use of different types of nylons is making synthetic gloves very durable and light-weight and have a more natural feel to them.

So far, I've only been able to find one company (Carpenter gloves) that makes custom synthetic gloves. Those gloves are hand made from different types of nylon. Other major-brand synthetic gloves I've found are either only partially synthetic, or they are cheap quality.

I see. Are there any plans to?

Hey, Merrell...

I'm a good friend and teammate of Tiff Brooks. Welcome!

Does your company make any vegan baseball gloves currently?

Hey Merrell!

Thanks so much! I just sent you an e-mail to your inbox on this site with more info, but in the meantime, if your daughter ever needs any encouragement from a female BASEBALL player, just let me know! : ) I wish her GREAT success!
