just got one in from ddemars. of course I haven't used it, I plan on selling it.

super stiff, the wrist opening is tighter than most other companies, which I find to be frequent with Akadema.
definitely nicer laces.
maybe not quite as big as a Mizuno GCP51

odd thing about thing about this line, is the wrist cushion I guess you can call it. there is no "fur" or whatever is normally used, just some suede. which I don't mind

Ditto.

I would say the quality is a little better then the precision however the laces are better for sure. I know alot of my friends use the first basemens glove and swear by it.

I've come across a few akademas, including a torino ADV33. not a fan. the laces aren't up to par and the thumb and pinky were too stiff. also, tight wrist openings.

Correct me if Im mistaken, but in a previous topic on torinos you said the laces were of good quality and it was a nice glove?
