My gloves absolutely get soaked, but wet glove is still able to hold the club much better than wet hand. Most the time the sweat comes through on the backhand side more than the palm side. More padding on the palm side...probably?
All that being said, I would probably still wear a glove if not used for sweating purposes. Consistency thing I guess? Like in pro football, some QBs only wear gloves when it's cold and some wear them all the time just to keep the feeling the same all the time.
Whatever works best for you, my friend :D I wouldn't care if someone came out wearing two boxing gloves if it helped them play better.
