    They're on sale for $30 right now and I guarantee you will not find a better glove for 3x that money. I was expecting a floppy piece of garbage with fishing line for laces, I got a stiff glove I couldn't close out of the box and legit laces. I can't recommend them more for the price tag.

    I'm sure you'll love it. A buddy of mine bought a trap right after I bought my H-web and he loves it as well. I'm considering getting another 12.5"-13" to use as a spare, bad weather, all that stuff.

    I think I remember these I might regret ordering them as I think I will have to break them in for my Senior teammates.....

    I bought one when it first dropped to $30.

    I thought the glove was sensational but a good buddy mentioned they saved the cash with the laces. The laces seemed okay and they’re still going strong.

    It’s beginning to stretch out a bit and the pocket has become flat and wide. I haven’t yet found any drawbacks.

    I think if you’re the kind of person who enjoys sitting on the couch beating on your...glove.

    Then buy one. Lots of entertainment for the $$.

    12.5” Boombah Classic Trap, Purchased for $30.

    Steer hide leather glove stiff as can be out of the box.

    I’ve played catch outside once with it and the rest of the work has been done on the couch.

    Just couch catch, and nothing else.

    Here’s a Rawlings HOH h-web and Gloveworks Davis mod trap, both 12.75” gloves.

    Boombah is right up there in size, despite being a 12.5” model.

    Picture is just for context.

    One of my teammates uses a Boombah for softball OF. I handled it today, and it seems like a very substantial glove. He said he paid $120 for that one, but has a 13.5" and 12.5" at home that he got for $40 each. Seems like a great glove at that price, or even the $120 he paid for the first one.

    which 3 models did you get? could you post some pictures of the 3 models when you get a chance, since my teamates are looking for a new glove. Anything is better than gloves that walmart carries. lol

    Thanks

    I got a navy and white I web 13" - outer shell feels ok but the innards feel like cheap drifit material, pinky and thumb bend easy. wont be bad for a rainy day. plays pretty big and the handstall is big even breaking it in TIP had to tighten the hell out of it.

    I’m considering purchasing the 8020 glove.

    Anyone out there have any feedback on those gloves?

    The 13" I got play fairly small. The basket web is so old, stiff and dry it may crack before it breaks in, LOL.
