First, some definitions (I'm making these up, but you'll see what I'm talking about). I consider an anchored web being one that is connected to the rest of the glove by at least one piece of solid leather. Examples of this are single-post, basket, and H webs. Floating webs are ones that are connected by lacing. Examples of this are I and one-piece webs. I consider mod-traps to be somewhere in between.

Having played with both (single post, basket, mod-trap and I) I find them to be very different, and probably better suited for different positions. At 2B I'm finding the consistent feel of the single post to be preferable, whereas at 3B and short I preferred an I web and mod-trap respectively. What do you guys think?

That's a tough one. Mostly because if you play more than one position you may prefer a different size and/or web than you do at a different position. (I only play SS), for now. But i know some people might prefer a PRO217 at 2B and would prefer a slightly bigger model at SS like a PRO200 or a PRODJ. Goes the same way for wilson you may prefer an X2 at 2B and a 1787 at SS. You might want the X2 Solid One Piece web for quick turns. Just my input.
