So I've been trying to find a new generation Wilson PP05 (11.5 with an h-web, not the older 11.75 models with the I web w/base) for years. I was very excited to here that they would be realeasing it for May's GOTM. To my suprise it is one of the ugliest gloves I have ever seen in my life!

Gunmetal on all fingers was definitely a bad choice!

I hope they release this pattern on the custom site.

Yeah its not attractive at all. I lamented the same thing on another site and was told rubbing alcohol on gunmetal = coal. But agreed hope its added to the custom site, I've thought many times of sending my 1786 off to get a custom H web from glovesmith done.

It's simply a business move. Pro players can customize web and size, and this particular model has been produced with different sizes and webs yet in the retail realm yet hardly, if any, actually use said glove.

Buyers pay dough for the "pro-only" model exclusiveness, and the color's more of a whatever. If this H-web edition sells more fiercely than other gotms, than customization is possible since there is no H 11.5".

Pros can customize what web/size but in essence it is changing the glove model and Wilson the creates a separate glove model (for most cases). The newer PP05 are all 11.5 H-webs. As for the color's more of a whatever statement I will agree to disagree. Some people don't mind flashy bt for me that thing is way too over the top and I will not be purchasing. So I hope by some miracle it sells so I can buy a custom.

IMO this glove doesn't look flashy, it looks like the colorway Wilson uses on their $10-$30 kids/t-ball gloves.

Mattingly you are right flashy was not the corrrct word. Walmart-like is probably a better description.

Scratch the gunmetal and the (IMO) cheesy MLB logo on all Wilsons, and we have ourselves a glove.

Gunmetal and White two main colors that shouldn't be on a glove in anything other than stitching and that's only the white, no sparkle in baseball!

The mlb logo doesn't bother me cause I never see it, though the less advertising the better on any glove.

Call me crazy but I don't mind the MLB logos on Wilson gloves (Depending on the color). To me its the same as the MLB logo on Rawlings balls.

Good discussion. Stayed on topic. Unlike another site. Kudos to those involved. I agree that it's a business move that the glove was released in that color way. Either that's their most popular color way request or the cheapest to make or something else. You can't really be upset with Wilson. It's just business and you didn't have to buy the glove. Wilson has become a lot better at responding to the public and its wants via social media. Maybe ask why they chose that color way or request it become a custom just like the 1781 model having an H web possibly becoming a custom.

Already done YoEhLow, I requested that they make the PPO5 a custom months ago.

If they did this glove again for GOTM or even retail I suggest all orange tan like Ryan Theriot's.

Does anyone know anything about this pattern? Is it similar to the 1786/G4 or completely different? To me, it looks like a 1786 that is slightly wider due to the H web. I think that this pattern would be a huge success on the retail market due to the demand for H webs these days.
