Hmm... okay, well lets go back to the design.
They have a ~1.5inch foam type of plate in front. Behind that, within the hand cover, is a semi-sphere foam that fits the palm well. This semi-sphere foam/material is the part that has greatly becoming softer over time. The semi-sphere compresses and reforms very well.
The leather in front has become a little stretched in the area where the "sweet" spot is for catching--which is only noticed if I depress that region. I think this is assisting in absorbing shock kind of like a trampoline, as well as making it easier for the hitter to hit the target.
Well, I did some extensive catching yesterday, the mitt always feels soft regardless of how hard a person punches-as long as I'm properly providing mitt work. I can tell if they hit high or low thanks to the curve and if they hit spot on, the semi-sphere cushion in conjunction with the front foam plate and leather makes the catch experience noticeably better than other mitts I've tried--which is generally harder like I'm catching punches with a stiffer foam.
Hope that answers it.

I'm going to pick up CM-70's next year and maybe some of these Sergio's that I'm reading more often of
