A blue Reptillian used by Willie Eyre. He also used a brown pro model that I'm pretty sure wasn't Reptillian but could never tell. I always liked this glove athough I hate CJs blue. C'mon....can't they be pickey enough to ask for one that goes with the uniform?!? :P Made me want an Akadema Reptillian.

I think it's one of those things where the manufacture just did something to shake things up. like Rawlings Vise Series. :|

Having first started playing when Akadema started extensively marketing this series, I know a bit about it...

The point of this series was for it to be a "New evolution in baseball gloves," similar (from a marketing perspective) to the Nike Kaos Series (they originally planned this out to be a pro series, but changed it to a youth series), the aforementioned short-lived Rawlings Vise (A rip-off of Akadema's Reptillian Claw series minus the leather quality; Even some madels had a see-through plastic back!).

I want to say that the Reptillian Series is still around with one or two gloves, but one would have to directly ask the company to find that out.
