Does anyone own one of these that would like to give me a good review on it? and pictures would be greatly appreciated too. I saw a player using it and mistook it for a DE pro even up close. Leather looks really good.

I was actually wonder about this only a couple weeks ago and I ended up getting one. I definitely like the feel of it, and it has really shaped well to my hand. It came a bit soft in the palm, a bit to easy to close for my Asian glove preference, but the fingers are very stiff. And i really like the two tone aspect, the colors are great. It's a solid glove, and when it's discounted to 65 on Nike, a good deal. I have to second that the laces are weak (i actually relaced mine...). But all in all, a solid glove. The one thing to worry about: i ordered directly from Nike and the first glove i returned due to a small tear. I got my second one, which i have now completely relaced, but there is a small rip or something on one of the fingers. I'm not sure if it's anything worth worrying about, and i don't feel like returning another, but if you choose to buy one from Nike you may want to inspect it first. I can post pictures of the glove later if you are still interested.

I found a used 11.5" on ebay for $40, and grabbed it...

I re-worked it and I have to say, the glove is really awesome!!

The only thing I found was that the thumb-loop ties are really flimsy leather... The actual thumb-loop itself (and the pinkie-loop too) is the best structured out there... Nike did their homework on the design... Glove break is perfect from thumb-to-pinkie.

The lacing is OK, not great... (for under $100, though, it's a VERY minor, MEH...) They could stand to be re-laced with something good.

Overall, the leather is really good, pinkie and thumb are thin in thickness (nice), the heel is really nice and thin too...

Great glove!
