    Mu daughter is playing adult slowpitch softballs She plays mostly outfield but does play quite a bit of 2nd base also. She is looking for a 12.5 or so inch glove with a small hand stall. She is still using a fast pitch Mizuno that is on its last leg. Looking for suggestions. Am leaning towards Wilson or Rawlings, or maybe even one of the new Eastons, although they seem to be gone before most people can order them.

    Hear me out, the Vinci RV1961 works great for what you’re asking for. Listed at 12.75” but plays slightly smaller, but the reason it works so well for our girls is the really small/snug hand and finger stalls. We have two RV1961’s and a BV1929 on Anna’s FP team, they just work great for the female hand!

    No need to spend that kind of $$$. What I would recommend right now is from Fogdog's Ebay store. It's a Vinci RCV1250-22 for $127.49 That's a great price for an excellent glove that's designed primarily for the girl's fast pitch market & plays true to size. It will transfer well to the slow pitch game.

    Ok. So whats the major differences between the 1250 and 1961? Size? Material?

    RV1961-L is 12.75" and is Kip leather.
    RCV1250-22 is 12.5" and is Steer hide.
    They also offer a RV1961-22 that is Steer hide.

    Either would definitely work for what she's looking for.

    ANNASDAD is spot on with the leather comparisons.

    I would also add that the RCV1250-22 is one of the newer 22 Series gloves that have the deer tanned cowhide lining as opposed to the sheepskin lining. This makes for a tougher, more durable glove that compares favorably to gloves that are at twice the price of the Fogdog price.

    Marucci has a 12.5" fastpitch series model - MFGSB1250S - that seem to be well made, with a smaller hand stall. Price point likely higher than other options discussed.

    I appreciate all of the information. I think she will probably get one of the two Vincis. I'm presenting them to her and will let you all know.

    mizuno mvp fastpitch model is good for the money and has a smaller hand stall. 44pro is also having a sale until the 19th i believe and i cant speak enough about the quality of the signature series
