I'm going to be ordering a custom Rawlings off of rawlingsgear.com(over the phone).

I have a couple questions,

1) Should I spend the extra $100 on pro preferred leather?

2) Which leather will last longer pro preferred or heart of the hide?

3) What are the differences between an I-web, a single post, and a pro h web. Also I slide my fingers over in my glove to have a bigger pocket(pinkie finger and ring finger in the slot for the pinkie finger and move my my middle finger and index finger over) and I'm also going to have the finger pad be on the middle finger. What web is better for they way I wear my glove?

4) What color of leather last the longest? Tan or Black for Heart of the Hide? Black or Camel for Pro Preferred?

Everything you mention is personal preference really, especially color. Some say certain webs work better for certain positions for specific reasons. Just research it. I personally would never buy another pro preferred after buying a custom just a few months ago and selling it shortly after. Pop out problems were present from day one, which I have not had with any of the HOH gloves I've owned. And this existed in my PROS12MTB PP glove as well as my custom.

Order yourself a USA Horween HOH from Eastbay and call it a day. Awesome leather, plus they smell great....(memories of when gloves were made well in the good ole USA...)
