Google it. Get yourself a good translater. :roll:

Just for a little perspective, 330,000KRW (Korean currency) = approximately $225.00USD. And that doesn't include the international shipping. Shoot an email to somebody at Wilson - they might be able to help you out, or at least point you in the right direction.

I've already emailed Wilson twice and they didn't respond.

Have you considered graduating to an A2000? I know that I'm not the first to suggest it. As much as I know you must love that A1000, I'm positive that there's another model close enough to it that you'd love just as much - if not more. And with the trouble you seem to be having with finding this glove, you might not have a choice but to switch.

With the used market (or even trade market here on the forum) being what it is, you can definitely afford to experiment with a few models, dumping the ones that don't cut it, and find the one that's right for you. Most of the people here are fans of the higher end offerings - that's probably the reason nobody here has an A1000, let alone that specific model you're looking for. The other thing to consider too, is (as you've probably found out for yourself) A2000s are WAY more plentiful.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck!

The ECCO leather is very heavy I've heard. Vortex is much better.

People once heard the Earth was flat, too....

Don't go by what you've heard - try different things, and then judge for yourself based upon your own experience.

Wilson A1000,

Check this out,

http://www.overstock.com/Sports-Toys/Wi ... oduct.html

The .25 of an inch is barely even recognizable in my opinion.
It is for a good price too.

Good luck,

-Kyle

This one looks pretty good to me, but I would need to put a finger pad on it.
I still would like to find a way to get the brown one, though.

On the glove it says "Japan". I've read this means it isnt the best quality. Still looks good though.

No, Japan does not mean lower quality unless you are comparing them against the a2000's that were made in the usa many years ago. To the best of my knowledge any wilson you get now is going to be made somewhere in asia. I was just saying that you should get an a2000 instead of an a1000 because it is higher quality, regardless of where it's made. And the H1 is an infield model about the size you are looking for.
