I have been looking for a really FLAT pattern for middle infield softball for awhile.. Got in touch with glovesmith about creating a glove perfect for me and man did they nail it.

I chose the 12.25 Single post web, with a finger pad on the middle finger. Also asked for 1/4 inch lacing to keep the glove as stiff as possible.

I chose black and red to match my teams colors..

I'll be posting pictures in a minute.

Looks good. I love this pattern but wouldn't call it flat except relative to a vinci (1250 would be flatter, imo). did they modify it beyond the finger pad? Then again mine has a wide web, making it deeper.

Did you ask them to flare the glove?

What I told them was how I wear my gloves, and what I wanted that some other companies don't provide.. Although glovesmith provides some features stock I asked for 1/4 lacing, middle finger pad, no palm pad, and I wanted longer laces.

I told the rep I flare my gloves, maybe it was put into consideration when being made? I don't know. I really like the flat palm with the wide heel. The leather is obviously second to none. The only thing I would have liked is to see straight lacing on the finger stalls and not this cross or x crap.

Also, how they lace the web is very different to me... I like it, but I may end up changing it.

It amazes Mr how they got this glove to match your preferences. My 1225 looks nothing like this. Very cool.
