Bionic Gloves Are Terrible

14 posts in this topic

I bought these gloves from a Dicks Sporting Goods and they began to tear less than 3 months later. I called the manufacturer and after talking to their rude representative they sent me a new pair only after they got the original pair back. Long and behold 3 months later they began to tear. I got the sizing right I washed them after use. I did everything i was suppose to do. I called them back and once again the rude representative said that they will not send a replacement simply because it's against their policy. I understand the so called policy and i wouldn't make such a big deal about it, but since these gloves cost 40 dollars i feel as if i never got the money's worth. I will never buy anything affiliated with bionic again. everyone have a nice day.

I'm a lil surprised to hear this.  I've been unsing these gloves (w/the black inset) for 2 yrs now and the only ptoblem I have had was a slight tear from a thumb nail that I hadnt kept trimmed.  And at $40??? thos I think i might go to something else.  I haven't paid over $25 for the 3 I have purchased. (got a new one in the bag)

I've read some pretty blistering reviews of Bionic gloves - mostly due to them lacking in the robustness dept.  I play almost exclusively in TM H2O all-weather gloves anymore....both hands.

I have a slight arthritis in my fingers and have used the Bionic glove (cadet medium) for three years. Each glove has lasted at least 6 months and I play at least twice a week year round. I have never torn or ripped the gloves. Possibly you do not grip the club properly causing a tear in the glove? as for me, I think Bionic are terrific!

If you suffer from arthritis or other hand ailments, there is another glove on the market. Check out the LeviTee Golf Glove. http://thesandtrap.com/b/apparel/levitee_golf_glove_review

I've used Bionic gloves for ages and the only issue I've ever had was wearing of the palm pad due to incorrect grip on one pair and getting "baggy" on another pair that were used for a week of golf in 40degree heat where my hands got soaked every day.

I'd suggest figuring out what's wrong with your swing to cause such damage to them.

Can't agree with this at all. Have used these gloves for years without problem and I play 100+ rounds a year. Always paid around $24 for them.

I echo the "no problem" crowd.  I've bought three and they last almost an entire season.   I love this glove and have never had an issue.

Thanks for your interest Denny....I have arthritis and have used the Bionic glove for over 6 years....they are a thicker leather in addition to the pads, allowing them to last 3 or 4 times longer than regular gloves. That being the case, they are a bargain at $25. Afte Christmas, I had a gift card to Dicks and purchased a similar Bionic glove for $15. The backs are synthetic instead of leather. It is now March, I have played 2 times a week wearing the new version and it is still in stellar condition. Thanks Bionic!

    • Iron Game Suffers when Driver Going Well
      For high handicappers myself included, this is typical.   I think it is b/c we don't have the same swing for irons and longer clubs.  If we get them both right in the same round, it is probably by pure luck or coincidence.  Grin and bear, and enjoy the journey.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      The topic title is the question who is the greatest golfer, the poll is the question who was the best. Two different things in my opinion. There's no doubt to me Tiger was a better golfer. How could he not? Spieth, McIlroy, Day but even guys like Wiesberger, Luiten and Donaldson play better golf than Jack. The game evolved so much over the years, and got so much more professional. If Jack would have been around in this era he would benefit from all that as well and be a better golfer than he was (and probably top those guys I just mentioned). But who was the greatest. How do you measure that (can you)? Tiger was dominant in a stronger field, winning more titles than you can count. Jack was the first of a kind, winning the biggest titles (majors) over an enourmous span and having the most of them. Isn't it mostly a matter of personal who you find 'greater'? For me Johan Cruyff is the greatest Dutch football player of time, but I have no doubt that Dennis Bergkamp and Arjen Robben were/are better because the game evolved. 
    • Making a Murderer Discussion Thread (Spoilers Likely)
      Obvisously... she took his case about a month ago. On one hand I hope Avery is guilty as hell, on the other hand it would be an amazing story and twist if turns out to be set up and she can prove that. I think that chance is less than 1%, but still..... Possibly, good point. Should be quite some blood though since they found 'drops', meaning it was dripping from (in this theory) his glove. Exactly my point. I don't think the blood was freely flowing, because than there should be a lot more blood in the car. They found blood consisting with bloody hair. Seems to me, and I know I'm not an expert, that she was already dead when she was in the car, because that would explain the little amount of blood found (no pumping of the heart, no flow of blood) and the place it was found (in the back). One can easily argue that he killed in the garage, moved her to the car, and only then got the plan to burn her instead and moved her again; to the pit. But the 'problem' is that that's not what the DA said what happenend. In my opinion that blood in the car contradicts the story (or truth) he wants us and the jury to believe, and contradicts also with the story of Dassey which is the only thing that links Dassey to the case: his own words. That doesn't mean Avery is innocent, but it might raise some doubt. The DA should stick with the facts, not filling in the blanks with guessing. If he can't prove exact chronologically he shouldn't state it as 'fact'.   Absolutely. I'm not convinced in anything, not in my opinion, not in yours, not at all in the people who made the documentary. Also not a fan of conspiracy theory's. I don't think the murder was planted on him, but I do think some mistakes were made by the justice system. Mistakes that possibly should have lead to his and maybe even more Dassey's release, even though there's a big chance he did it. That's for me perhaps the most interesting part in this case and in the discussion. If we want a justice system where the chance is close to 0% that we convict someone innocent, and the prosecution and police need to follow the rules, it means sometimes the guilty walk free. I think everything they found on the compount while Manitowoc detectives were present should have been excluded. I think the DNA on the blood of the bullet should have been excluded. I think the 'confession' of Dassey should have been excluded. I think Dassey should have given at least a new trial, but that was denied by the same judge which handled his initial case (?!).
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      A long time ago, by Tiger's own admission,  said a golfer's career is measured by "majors won" . So if Woody does not break Jack's major record, then according to Woody, his career will be second to Jack's. Now Jack has said that he expects (expected) Woody to break his major record. So Jack is saying he expects Woody will have the better career.  These are the only two guys who would know who had the best career.   Neither one is going to be the GOAT. They will just be a GOTE. 
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Nope, you blindly worship Jack.  It is obvious that you have not read much, if any, of the thread.  But hey, you saw Jack.  In person, yet.  So what.  I did too.  I saw him win his last USGA championship at Cherry Hills.  I saw Tiger play as well - although in person I only saw practice rounds.  So what.  That does not make my assessment of their respective careers more or less credible.  Geee, I never saw Hogan play so I guess we cannot count him in the discussion.   You think Jack was better.  That is fine.  You are entitled to your opinion.  Just don't spoil it with specious reasons or arguments.  Because those we will slice apart like one of Klinger's salamis.
