Pros: Durability

Cons: Feel

I was really excited when I first received my new Cutters C-Tack golf glove.  I've never been terribly picky when it came to golf gloves, and found that most were the same.  I pick a medium priced leather glove that fits, wear it until the thumb or, more commonly, the base of the palm pad wore a hole, and then go buy a new one.  I've not found one that I disliked because of feel.  Some lasted longer than others, but all eventually wore out in one of those two same places.  The Cutters glove seems to address that problem with a patch of their tacky "C-Tack" material on the thumb and palm pad.  Additionally, there are pads further up the palm, towards the pinky, and over the last knuckle and a half of both the middle and ring finger.  It's the same material that they use for their football gloves that wide receivers wear, and it is very tacky.  It also seems extremely durable, so this glove might have a really long life.  Given the $25 retail price, that would be a great thing.

When I first put it on, it became very apparent that these gloves are undersized.  I normally wear a M/L glove, and furthermore, those M/L gloves are pretty stretchy.  This one barely fit on my hand, and as yet, is still not stretched out enough to be comfortable.  This isn't really a huge problem, as I believe, like most gloves, the package is openable in the store so you can check the size before you buy it.  If you were to purchase one of these online, I'd go one size up from your usual though.

 

The big problem I have with the glove is the thick black pads on the two middle fingers.  When you grip the club, the material bunches up between your finger and the club.  It just doesn't feel quite right, and a comfortable grip is too important to me to compromise.  Had they left these two pads off the glove, or at least stopped them short of that first knuckle, I think they might be really onto something here.  The glove seems really well made and I believe that it could last a really long time, however, because of the feel issues, I won't be comfortable using it on the course.

 

I am curious, however, to see how these might perform in wet weather.  Being in Southern California, we don't see much rain, but the next time I'm golfing and it starts to come down, I will give this glove another try.  I have a hunch this C-Tack material will hold its own, and given the slickness of a regular glove in the rain, this glove may still serve a purpose.  So, since part of my problem with the comfort of this glove is due to an incorrect size, and the fact that it may prove to be a benefit in the rain, I'm giving it 2.5 stars.  I'm not going to recommend it, but I'm not ready to recommend against it just yet either.
