Glove came in exactly one month after I placed my order through SBF.

Got the 12" version, as I was looking for something longer than my PROS12ICBR at 3B and this is just perfect.
Very stiff overall, especially in the fingers, it can't be fully closed. This one's gonna take awhile to break in.

I'd like to thank Jackson, Mattingly and Rous for all their help.
Hope you like it, folks:

Beautiful glove.. glad it all worked out.
Full break-in will take a while, but it will absolutely be worth it.

Hopefully about a month of constant use. This one is way nicer than any retail PP I've ever felt.

Judging by the looks of the thumb and pinky, looks more similar to the PI PP customs than some of the retail models.
PI PP customs are absolute bricks with a super stout thumb and pinky and take a bit of time to fully break in, but once they do you have a glove with a super custom fit and pocket.

Have not seen a PI PP in person, but I can say that this glove has very thick leather and I still can't establish a flare, as the fingers are so stiff.

Been playing catch my brother, who throws in the 75-80mph range, with both weighted and regular baseballs. Overall, I'd say that I've catched around 100 throws since yesterday, and I still can't close it fully.

If anyone is thinking about a custom, I'd definitely recommend camel leather.

Something about the way the blue stitching "pops"... And I keep telling myself, "now that I'm retired from playing that I don't need another glove."

Looks like you do need another glove, sir.


As a follow up to the original post, my glove is breaking in beautifully after a month of constant use. I've even caught some bullpens with it and can close it fully by now.
However, the pocket isn't ready yet, as the ball still pops out of it from time to time. I'd estimate another two weeks of use until it's game ready, but it will definitely be worth the wait. This pattern is just perfect for 3B.
