Wilson Launches A2000 SuperSkin Line
The Wilson A2000 SuperSkin baseball glove was developed to make a lightweight glove without sacrificing performance. SuperSkin repels moisture, and when used, reduces the overall weight of the glove. Used on MLB fields since 1998, SuperSkin is unquestionably the only legitimate alternative to leather when making a lightweight glove without sacrificing durability. Other manufactureres replace leather with nylon. This porous material is weaker than leather - which is why they cover it with leather at the stress points.
Only Wilson has the patented SuperSkin materials which is two times stronger than leather, and half the weight!
