post #1 of 67
Thread Starter 

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,

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 have started to use the Foot Joy gloves. I'm also not sure on the specific one but it it feels great and lasted quite awhile.

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?

 

post #13 of 67

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.

post #14 of 67

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 ...

post #18 of 67

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.
