Best glove?

72 posts in this topic

Need to buy a couple new ones...any strong opinions one way or another?  I usually just buy a Nike Elite that the shop has where I play the most.  Thanks!

God bless,

Ryan

Durability should be a factor. Well, at least it was for me. Back when I used to wear one.

My favorite is the Taylor Made Targa Tour. It lasts reasonably long considering how much my hands sweat, it looks cool, and it's comfortable.

I wear the nike gloves. Not one in specific, but I try to get the nicer leather ones. I know I don't buy the top of the line glove that the tour guys use, but I do buy the middle class glove. Most of the time I get them at the Nike factory stores here locally because they're usually on sale for $7 or $8 & the golf store wants $18-$20.

Just don't buy the Srixon "hybrid" glove… That thing is crap!! I bought 3 at a golf stores closing sale for about $7 a piece, but they just suck! Not really leather, not built to last, etc… I can not speak on their "premium" gloves, because I have not tried them, but the one I did try was junk!

I caught a bad one of these recently that ripped right down the seam on the side as I tightened it. It was almost brand new. Luckily I had a back up Nike is my bag. For the most part though, these gloves have been more than serviceable for me.

I choose my leather gloves based on how they feel

If I want durability I use an all weather glove that I can machine wash

If you can find them, FJ has a premium glove called FJ Pure Touch.  Its amazing.  I tried one on in the store and its unreal.  I haven't played in one so can't speak to durability and they are about $25, but goodness they're comfy.

Im a big fan of the Mizuno Retroflex.  They fit well, last a long time (Im able to get about 6 months of playing 2-3 rounds per week, they dont get all that slick, they just get nasty and crusty from sweat) and are fairly inexpensive.

Ive used Nike gloves in the past and found they didnt last very long before they started to get slick and I found that FJ/Titleist gloves dont fit my hands very well.  The larges are too snug and the XLs are too big and start to bunch up in the palm after a round and start to get black and slick after a few rounds.

Im yet to try TM or Srixon gloves though, so I cant comment on those.

I just got one of those Srixon hybrids that you mentioned. What was wrong with them? I've played a couple rounds with it so far and it hasn't bothered me. Its like a cross between the FJ Spyder and a nicer cabretta glove. Was there some funky stretching or seams coming undone or something?

I found that it stretched out weird, durability wasn't very good, and the glove was actually short around the bottom of the hand. The material they are made with had a weird feel to it (I guess thats why its called a "hybrid"). I just did not like anything about it. Definitely would not buy it again, even if on sale for an "unbeatable price."

I know a lot of guys here like "durability" in a golf glove. I mean I do, but its not my first requirement. I LOVE breaking out a new glove, New gloves just feel so good!!! So once it starts to wear out, stretch out, or just fit different, I toss it for a new one.

Well I guess I will find out. I paid I think $11 for it, and so far I like it. But I change gloves whenever they get too crusty and stretched out, which happens more often than you'd think here in WA. One wet round can trash a glove, and cabretta doesn't mix well with water/mud etc.

The retroflex is a great glove

It doesn't feel as tight as the skintite but the leather is just as thin

I've been playing the Taylormade Targa Tour for two years.  Very thin, good feeling, and not overly expensive.  But lately, I've been having problems with excessive wear (due to grip problem) and sweat on the back of the hand.

So after some research I'm now swintching to and testing the Footjoy SciFlex glove.  It is supposed to last a bit longer, can take a bit more sweat and still has good feeling.  So I'll see how that pans out.  First impressions are positive.  It is a little bit more expensive, but seems to keep its shape a bit better as the Targa Tours.  Time will tell more ...

Does anyone know of a glove without (or minimal) side thumb seam?  I love the feel of a new glove but after a certain time the glove thumb tends to twist around my thumb, so the seam is right in the middle of my thumb bad which causes discomfort (I twist the part back around to make it comfortable, but its annoying)...


Does anyone else get this problem?  Maybe I am being cheap and using a glove for too long?  I have yet to find a glove which doesn't do this and have reverted to using no glove lately, its winter here so its ok, but summer I do get a case of damp hand if I dont use a glove.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?
    • Share a Fact from Your Job
      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
