I was never a fan. I use a HOTH 13" 1B glove and a Primo 11.5" for pitching. I think Rawlings are the best gloves money can buy. Well worth the money.
I've been playing first base for about 15 years and have tried almost every glove out there, and I keep going back to Rawlings.
I'm not sure what kind of outfield gloves are at the top of the market, really depends on the individual feel of each glove. But I'd buy Rawlings and Wilson well ahead of SSK. Definitely personal preference, though.
