Okay, I've never seen one in person before but from what I've seen from pictures they seem like great gloves. Definitely look like they have thick leather and wide pockets. I'm looking for an 11.5 pattern with a modified trap or maybe 1 piece closed web. It would be a gamer so I need to know if these gloves are for real. I wouldn't usually go for a glove I've never seen before to be a gamer but they look beautiful. I've seen them on barrazapro.com for a pretty good price too. Please post opinions on them and maybe how i could get one.
-Thanks

Hello mjh2297.

I am a distributor/dealer for Rolin/Barraza.

There are several forum members who have Rolin and Barraza gloves.

If you search "Rolin" on the forum, you will find several threads about the gloves.

You can also look in the "Made in Mexico" sub-forum in the Modern Glove Discussion section.

These gloves are very good quality, and have a unique style and "feel"

You can also check out my website at http://www.gloveguy.us to see detailed photos of the gloves.

In addition to offering gloves for custom order, I also stock many gloves that can be shipped immediately.

Feel free to email me at john@gloveguy.us if you have any questions.

JC

Welcome, mjh. Don't listen to anything JC says, he would have no idea about Rolin (very sarcastic - he's your man to order one from).

I own a bunch of different gloves from different manufacturers, including a Rolin. Lot of people on this forum do as well. Buy one with no reservations - great gloves and very customizable. JC can help you get the perfect Rolin. The above link will lead you right to the "Made in Mexico" section.

Thanks for the kind words, Gabby.

BTW, your son's custom glove should be here within the next 10 days. :D

The Rolin and Barraza leathers are all very similar, and all are very good quality.

The "ata" branding is used on the Barraza models.
This is the only leather offered on the Barraza gloves.

The Rolin gloves are available in PRO and XPT quality.

Both are very similar, and there is only a $10 price difference between the two grades.
In my experience, the PRO leather tends to be slightly softer than the XPT.

If you order a custom glove, we can customize the overall stiffness of the glove.
This is accomplished by using more (or less) than the standard thickness of padding in the fingers.
We can also get you a thicker, or thinner internal palm pad, depending on your preference.

I also offer free factory break-in (usually an extra $10) to my customers.

I currently use an 11.5" XPT (Model WR-437-2) with an I web. The glove broke in very quickly, but retains its stiffness in the thumb and pinkie.

Feel free to ask any additional questions, and I will be happy to help you.

JC

Thanks for the help JC. I have another question, hopefully my last. I saw that Rolin uses a web called a "trapper" web. Is this a modified trapeze or a full trapeze?

Rolin makes a "true" 6 finger trap-eze web, an "Ichiro" style web, and a modified trap-eze web.

Each glove pattern is avialable with different webs, as indicated on my website.

The modified trap-eze is available on all patterns and sizes.

The "Ichiro"web is available on glove sizes 11.75" and larger.

The "true 6 finger" trap-eze web is available on glove sizes 12" and larger.

I hope this helps.

JC
