What is best leather series for a Rico Glove?
Mar 8th 11:11am
The best leather for Rico Gloves for pro, college, and elite high school is either Select Series or Ultra Series. Those two series are Rico Gloves highest end leather. Select Series features Maruhashi Japanese tanned leather for most colors. The Select Series Caramel color is Horween leather.
The new Ultra Series coming soon will feature more leather colors. The new Ultra Series will be made of a high end Grade 1 steer hide leather. This series will also include the option for direct stitching of the Rico logo on the wrist instead of the Rico patch logo.
The Star Series is our third best leather series. Its ideal for young teens and adult players or customers looking for a good glove at a reasonable price point for a custom glove. The Star Series is made from smooth cowhide leather and looks and feels very similar to Ultra Series.
The Prime Series is the lowest cost custom that we make. Its made of tumbled cowhide leather. It has a slightly tumbled look to the leather. Its a very good custom for the price point and most companies can't beat our prices for a custom glove with this quality. Its the best price for a custom that we make.
Rico Youth Series is for players that are at least 8 years old and ideal for players ages 9-11 years old. Some 12 or 13 year old could use youth series because the wrist is more of a tapered sizing (not a super small youth sizing that is seen in 5-8 year old gloves). Our youth series is not recommended for 5-7 year olds based on sizing and leather. The Youth Leather is the same as our Prime Series and made of a tumbled cowhide leather. The glove has stiffness new and requires some breaking in but shouldn't take long with use.
