Akadema’s proprietary Reptilian concept is a marriage between technology and evolution. Many features distinguish this innovative network, pocket, and near-fingerless design from traditional ball gloves. The glove’s near-fingerless nature provides a natural air pocket that serves as a shock absorber for the initial ball effect, allowing for a smoother and faster glove-to-hand transition.
This glove retains its distinctive shape for longer than a regular glove because there are virtually no breaking points inside the pocket. The Akadema Fastpitch Design Series is hand-crafted to meet competitive fast-pitch players’ needs and raise the level of play on thefield. The pocket and webbing are made of US Steerhide, but the back of the glove is made of proprietary AkademaLyte leather, which reduces the total weight of the glove and allows for a quicker break-in time and a more manageable feel.
The Grasp-Clasp wrist mechanism allows for improved playability by using smaller finger stalls to reduce the thumb and index finger gap.
Akadema is the world’s most entertaining baseball and softball organization.
Compared to mass produced goods that have nothing to do with consistency, feel, or design that increase the standard of play, Akadema’s ownership attributes a growing market share to their creative, quality professional product line. The Akadema Fastpitch Design Series ATS77 was created to meet the needs of competitive fast-pitch players. It is hand-crafted to improve your level of performance on the field. The pocket and webbing are made of U.S. Steerhide, while the back of the glove is made of exclusive AkademaLyte leather, reducing the glove’s total weight, allowing for a quicker break-in time and a more manageable feel

It’s better for fast-pitch softball because of the deep pocket. Softball balls are more extensive than baseball balls, so you can’t use a baseball glove to play softball. The diameter of a baseball bat is no more than 9.25 inches.
Softball balls are slightly bigger, with circumferences ranging from 11.88 to 12.13 inches. To fit that size, you’ll need a glove with a deeper pocket, which the Akadema ATS77 provides. When you take the ball out of the glove to throw, you can catch it more cleanly and bring it out more smoothly.
They’re also perfect for pitchers because the webbing covers the ball.
Since batters can’t see how the pitcher holds the ball, they can’t predict what kind of pitch will follow. This is an excellent glove to have if you play various positions on defence. If you’re a shortstop or a right fielder, you won’t need a different glove. Outfielders profit from the closed web as well. Even when catching line drives, the padding gives you more confidence.
It is intended for females. Putting political correctness aside, women and girls have smaller hands and shorter fingers than their male counterparts in general (but not always).
This means that a typical boy’s glove might be too heavy.
The stalls for the fingers in the Akadema ATS77 Reptilian Series, on the other hand, are built with ladies’ tiny and thinner fingers in mind.
The Grasp-Clasp Wrist System is beneficial. This method ensures that you are practising correct catching mechanics in the field. When you’re tired and anxious, it’s easy to forget and the machine teaches your hands what to do. The gap between the thumb and index finger is shorter. This makes handling the glove a lot easier. This is Because of the shorter reach, and you can grip the ball more tightly and easily and open it quickly so your throwing hand can get to the ball quicker.
It is durable
Females can only use it
It’s simple to gain access. Softball gloves, like baseball gloves, must be broken in before use. After all, the Akadema ATS77 is made of leather, which moulds to your hands’ exact shape and size over time. It also improves the smoothness of the glove’s movement. Some baseball gloves, on the other hand, take a long time to break-in. The Akadema ATS77 Reptilian Sequence, however, is not one of them. When its shape makes it feel like a regular part of your hand and the leather wraps around your hand and fingers like a glove, it doesn’t take long. It will feel rigid at first (as it should), but it will be fully broken in with only a week of consistent use.
