Like many players, as soon as I picked up a new glove I would immediately relace it with Tanners lace. After not using an actual Rawlings glove for a good number of years, I picked up a PRO202SPF. Their new Performance Fit piqued my curiosity, and as my last HOH was a dual core, the abbreviated break-in times of the dual cores would permit gaming it sooner than later.
I was surprised, however, with the difference in lace quality between Tanners replacement lace and what came on the glove. I checked the Black Horse code, and it is from July, 2015 and made in the Phillipines. The stock laces are stiff and have sharp edges. They remind me of a few custom gloves I've had made in Taiwan/ China over the last few years- almost a plastic feel.
No biggie- I'll relace the pocket and fingers, but I'm curious if anyone has had a similar experience.

I find a big difference between their black and tan (Good) and a colored lace like blue or red (plastic-like).
