New for 2019 the improved Vapor 2X Pro Catcher has provided a better off the shelf catcher with an improved grip liner to reduce slippage while maintaining it’s comfortable 60 degree break angle and one piece cuff design for maximum coverage.
The exterior of the catcher is the improved C.O.R.T.E.C.H ST skin which like the pads provides a hard & fast rebound when coming off the cuff, they have also improved on the durability of the glove to provide better consistent feel & performance during the game. The glove itself is the same 60 degree break angle from the previous 1X glove with a one piece cuff, this angle is typically all fingers that are being used to close the glove which saves any excess wear on the palm area which is great as this will further prevent any added stingers in the palm.
Bauer has handed a new internal grip which will reduce slippage in the palm that takes away the need for a inner glove, the new grip is very soft on the hand and throughout game play does not get slippery or loose feeling which is a big thing especially in those big pressure moments. The palm of the glove has an added layer of Curv Composite to help reduce stingers, and a easy nylon wrist strap to help you feel really connected with the glove.
