My 15 yr old son has had these and the Quest pair for $29.99, both split terribly in the palm...I admit washing them after two or three games but always by hand and dried in the dryer on low heat with other articles of similar fabric. I agree with other reviewer in that batting gloves are somewhat disposable but BOTH of the pairs were used in this season. I want to purchase more as my son has an AP5 wood and the CAT 7. Moreover, I purchased the Charge bat bag last year ago and it started ripping and the zipper seams two months of normal use. In fact, I have purchased a second AP5 this after the 31" split during an at bat. So, while I want my son to remain outfitted in Marucci, I am hesitant about buying a third pair.
