Perfection just got a little more perfect
The Wilson A2000 has been the diamond standard for over 55 years. To make it even better, Wilson blended the finest natural material, Pro Stock Leather, with a stronger, lighter and softer man-made material, SuperSkin. SuperSkin is used on the back of the glove to shorten break in time, lower your reaction time and repel moisture. Used on MLB fields since 1998, SuperSkin is unquestionably the only legitimate alternative to leather when making a lightweight glove without sacrificing durability. Other manufacturers replace leather with nylon. This porous material is weaker than leather - which is why they cover it with leather at stress points. Think it's impossible to improve perfection? Think again.
Strategic Design: Wilson uses the perfect material in every place on the glove to give you leather where it counts, and SuperSkin everywhere else, for the lightest playing glove on the market.
SuperSkin: Demanded by top athletes - 2x stronger than cowhide leather, but only 1/2 the weight.
Pro Stock Leather: American Steerhide prized by professional players for its rugged durability and unmatched feel. The perfect ball glove leather.
the super skin is what makes this glove. the a2000 it self is always nice, but making it lighter and more durable... you got yourself a fantastic glove here! (Posted on 12/8/14)
