Yeah, you really can't make a comparison between a $100 Akadema and that new Horween Pro12TC like OsDad just bought!! Not even close!Not one of those but in gloves in general. You would probably have nightmares if you saw my DD'S glove. She uses a Akadema AJB 74. I have bought 5 if them on Amazon for roughly $100 a piece. They tend to get floppy. I have tried to get her in other gloves but she has resisted.
