Hi all,

I just placed an order with Eastbay for a custom Rawlings HOH Catcher's mitt 32.5" and have some questions.

Anyone know the current waiting period? Are they usually correct when they say 5-6 weeks or can I get lucky and receive it sooner?

Also, I own a Wilson A2000 A2403 Pudge Catcher's mitt that is almost broken-in that is very soft and comfy. When broken-in, will the Rawlings HOH be as comfortable and soft as my Wilson A2000.

Last question, my Wilson is pretty light. It's a few ounces lighter that my Akadema catcher's mitt. Can someone tell me if it's as light or heavier that my Wilson?

Thanks to anyone that can help. I can't wait for my first custom!! :D

Delivery varies. I have ordered a glove off Eastbay and got it within 3 weeks! Bob (Rawlings glove master who builds the USA customs) may have been taking care of me, though. A2000 mitts are very popular and very stiff/tough to break in. I have a Rawlings USA mitt, but I got it off Ebay and not brand new. It wasn't broken in when I got it, and it was perfect.

The leather that Bob uses to build the Eastbay gloves is lighter and tougher than the other Rawlings leathers, I can tell you that. So, I wouldn't be surprised if you get your mitt before that 5-6 week period and I am very sure you will be happy with your mitt!
