I was looking for a replacement for my Easton S5s, which I love, but wore through the palm. The 15-in 5030s are the same length as my 14-in S5s. Also, the cuff is MUCH narrower. As a player who likes a wide cuff to over lap my elbow pads, these gloves are not for me. I'll keep the gloves and use them for coaching, but won't be able to play with them due to interference with my elbow pads. They are comfortable and were a decent value (got them on sale for $40).
