  • Wilson A2000: Price and Quality

    At the local sports store, they have wilson A2000's for sale, brand new for $189.99. I don't know if this is right, but don't they usually sell for $289.99 or $389.99? So the final question, is this a decent or cheap price for a A2000 and is it worth the bargain? (I don't wanna spend the money if it isn't good)

    Note: This glove will prolly be used for next season, since my louisville tpx is still in really good shape.

    Thanks in advance.

    That is the normal price for the A2000 the gloves that cost 280+ are the Wilson A2K which are nice and soft gloves if that is the kind you like.

    I like rawlings pro prefered since they last longer then the wilson A2000 that I had. They are stronger and don't get to soft to soon instead the leather stays stiffer longer which is how I like my glove when I play.

      Most A2000's go for around $200. And it seems like there are around 20 different glove types. As RiStar said, the A2K is the Super-Premium Wilson glove now.

      I know that many players swear by the A2000. Personally, I think there are better gloves out nowadays. Rawlings HOH, Nokona, Akadema, etc.

      Also... Maybe it's me, but I think that the many of the softer, "broken-in" gloves don't seem as durable.

        I think how good a glove it is depends upon what position you play as well. The older A2000 catcher's mitts were the best in the biz for a long time and still are among the best. I had an a2000 first base mitt as well when I was trying to learn first base and I hated that glove, but loved the Rawlings I replaced it with (but never cared for Rawlings catchers mitts for some reason).

          I ahve a Rawlings catchers mitt, its ok. But I love my Wilson outfield glove.
          See ball, hit ball.
