The 6-4-3 line from Wilson is the perfect combination of quality and affordability. At a mid-level price point, these gloves carry a great value for the excellent materials and construction. Whether it is a player, coach or parent looking to purchase a new mitt, s/he can rest-assured knowing that a glove from the 6-4-3 line will carry the familiar Wilson quality, at a lower cost.
The CM 1714 is 33” in diameter and ideal for the catcher that prefers a deeper pocket. This glove features Wilson’s ½-Moon web, which breaks in for an extra-deep pocket – keeping the ball secure in the glove when framing and picking balls out of the dirt.
The shell, palm and lacing are composed of Wilson’s Double Play leather. This leather is soft and quick to break-in, but does lack in durability. It will shape to the desired pocket rather quickly, but not lack in longevity when properly taken care of. This glove also features Wilson’s Rolled Dual Welting which takes strips of Pro Stock leather and rolls them as the welting for the glove, creating a long-lasting shape with a quicker break-in period.
The backing for this glove features a closed, fastback design with a strapped binding. This closed backing has a cutout and fingerhood for the index finger, for those that prefer to keep his/her finger on the outside of the mitt. The fastback design will keep the pocket deep, while protecting part of the hand from sting on impact. The strapped binding is held together via a D-ring, which provides quick and easy adjustments for the hand opening without sacrificing a secure hold.
Upon arrival, the 6-4-3 glove is nearly ready to use on the field and will require minimal work from the player before hitting the dirt.
