I plan on purchasing a 1st base mitt to use for softball next spring. I've narrowed it down to these two:

Louisville Slugger TPX Pro Flare Series: FLFB First Base Mitt

and Glovesmith Elite Series FB2HC4 First Base Mitt

I own a pro flare I use for outfield. I like the leather the break in period was long but once it broke in it came out perfect. I've never sen a Glovesmith in person but I've read a lot of good things about them.

I'm looking for your guys take on these two models.

What are you looking for in a first base mitt? Pocket, size, playability, durability, etc.

Pocket size and durability would be top two things I'm looking for.

I think hes referring to the actualy size of the pocket, like how deep/wide etc...

Deep enough pocket for a softball to fit in and not bounce out.

I would also look at the Vinci JBV-SB 13.5" 1st base mitt: http://www.vincipro.com/cart/jbv-sb-13. ... -mitt.html

Great pocket to house the softball.
