After speaking with many owners, reading reviews, and reading the product overviews of the Easton Mako Legacy Baseball Gloves, we compiled this article that combines the features of the Mako Legacy line with a breakdown of each and every one of the models.
Overview of the Easton Mako Legacy Baseball Gloves
The Easton Mako Legacy Baseball Gloves are a softer feeling group of gloves compared to closely-priced gloves from other brands, but with better materials. First of all, this line is made with what Easton calls “Hero” Kip leather, a looser-grained Kip leather that shares similar durability to other Kip leathers. But, with loose grain comes a soft feel, meaning the Mako Legacy gloves are fully squeezable out of the box. As compared to gloves like the Wilson A1K and Rawlings Heritage Pro, we see many similarities in the leather feel, but the quality seems to be better than those two series of gloves.
The lesser appreciated parts of a glove are also fantastic on the Mako Legacy Gloves. Every person we spoke to has gloated about how soft the liner is, even giving such high praise as to say it is better than some of the softest liners on the market, like the Pittards liner on Rawlings Pro Preferred’s and the Wilson A2K Liner. Also, these models have the padded thumb loops like Wilson models do, and they’re very comfortable and useful. Lastly, the lace quality is middle-of-the-road and gets the job done.
The last thing I will leave you with before jumping into individual models is a short comparison to similarly priced models like the Wilson A1K and the Rawlings Heritage Pro. In short, the Easton Mako Legacy Baseball Gloves are just better than the competition with higher quality leather, a super soft liner, and other durable materials. From the reports we received from owners, we recommend the Easton Mako Legacy Baseball Gloves over the two other lines.
Easton Mako Legacy 1125DBG
The 11.25″ Easton Mako Legacy 1125DBG model is a glove that slides in nice at second base, but could be used by shortstops who like smaller gloves.
Easton Mako Legacy 1150DBG
The Easton Mako Legacy 1150DBG is an 11.5″ model with an I-web, and is a perfect model for either second basemen or shortstops, but could be used at third basemen who like smaller gloves.
Easton Mako Legacy 1175DBG
This 11.75″ model compares to the Wilson A2000 EL3 in many facets, including a single post web, the 11.75″ size, and a deep pocket. Therefore, it is best served at third base, but could be serviceable at short as well.
Easton Mako Legacy 1176DBG
This is a second 11.75″ glove, but the Easton Mako Legacy 1176DBG is better fit for use on the mound than on the dirt. With a modified trapeze web, it has a fairly deep and firm pocket and provides good ball hiding.
Easton Mako Legacy 1200DBG
The Easton Mako Legacy 1200DBG is a 12″ bon-a-fide pitcher’s model, complete with a grip-concealing basket web that makes a deep pocket.
Easton Mako Legacy 1275DBG
This 12.75″ model fits the mold of a typical outfield glove. The Easton Mako Legacy 1275DBG has a nice, deep pocket to corral any flyballs in the outgrass.
Easton Mako Legacy 38DBG
The Easton Mako Legacy 38DBG is a 12.75″ first base model with a single post web. Based on the pattern design, we sense a similarity between this glove with a Rawlings DCT, the most popular 1B pattern on the market.
Easton Mako Legacy 233DBG
The Easton Mako Legacy 233DBG is a 33″ catcher’s mitt. This size is perfect for any catcher, because it is not too big while it’s not too small.
