Got this sweet Vinci RV56 under the tree - 12.5" H-Web 6.5 oz kip - thanks to Smarkley for a great deal and for being so helpful. Haven't stopped working on it yet!

One of my absolute favorite Vinci models!

I had one that was used and just couldn't get used to the way it was broken in. I'd love to get another one new. Built to last for sure and you can catch absolute lasers without a touch of sting. Great glove for 3rd base as long as you don't prefer a smaller glove.

And BTW, Smarkley is a great guy to deal with!

That is one sweet looking glove. Love that color, yeah I'm old school.
How is the break in coming?

Do you use for baseball or softball?

I worked hard at breaking it in from Jan-March, and made it my gamer since April. It still feels stiff but any ball that hits it just sticks. I love this glove, playing softball 3B three nights a week. Will post an updated pic soon as I get a chance so you can see how the pocket is taking shape.

Highly recommend the Vinci Kip...

My teammate has had the RV56 for 3 years now, playing 3 nights a week plus some tourneys. He was playing last night and he made the exact same comment. "It just sticks." He absolutely loves it.
