    Looking for a PI Wilson 1781, hard to find. I am only interested in 12.25-12.5”. Thanks in advance!

    I had one of the original in OT and i can't imagine what glove in that size range could possibly be wider?

    Somebody on the forum posted a whole bunch of side-by-side comparison pics of the SP125 with several glove patterns (including the 1781).

    I had a retail 1781 with the 4 hole mod. The shape and feel of the SP125 reminds me a lot of the 1781.
    I remember thinking when the SP125 came out it was too narrow. Slightly shorter palm and longer fingers probably adds to the narrowing effect/perception.

    I'm a season in and the thought of narrow has never come to mind.
    Both great gloves for what I like to play.
