Our catch gloves are constructed of selected materials that enable the glove to be custom heat molded to your hand for a true custom fit. This process allows for quicker break-in, additional control and balance, and also to increase the level of protection and performance.
INSTRUCTIONS TO CUSTOM HEAT MOLD YOUR GLOVE:
Heat the glove in an accurately controlled convection oven at a temperature range of 145° to 160°F (63° to 71 °C) for 8 to 10 minutes. Use caution, the glove will be hot. If necessary, allow the glove to cool slightly before putting it on your hand. Once heated, place the glove on your hand and tighten the wrist strap thumb and finger loops. Then flex the glove repeatedly to form to your desired shape. Repeat this step if necessary. If the glove is still warm reduce the warming time in half. The inside of the glove can be misted with water to help soften the interior, speed up the break-in process and to keep the materials cool to the touch.
CAUTION: Do not over heat the glove. If you are not sure of the oven temperature, use a cooking thermometer to set temperature. Do not place glove near the ovens heat elements, this can damage the glove.
