Bionic Gloves Are Terrible

Recommended Posts

robert5050    0

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.

Robert, Write a review in the Equipment section.  It really helps others when looking at equipment.

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!

    • As others have said, you''ll probably be hitting a lot of shots with short irons .  with awkward changes to grip,posture, that kind of thing.  I'll be surprised if he let's you swing your driver unless your iron game is really competent and you don't have swing flaws. A very good chance it'll make you a better player, but early lessons  might not be fun. At least that's been my experience and that of everybody I know who have taken lessons.
    • I responded initially to David's comment about hitting an approach shot with what I thought would require a fairway wood to a difficult green and being confident in the outcome. What you've quoted was a response and disagreement to Kevin's comment suggesting that hole would not be difficult for higher handicappers. I'll resist replying to @Vinsk's post directly below yours. My apologies for taking this thread off-topic.
    • I've been looking at my swing in caddie view, especially P8/A8 (the shaft is parallel to the ground in the follow-through) and I noticed that my neck and eyes are still pointing in the direction of where the ball was at address until after P9/A9. I think this is a really bad move for me as I am left handed and left eye dominant, meaning that my dominant eye isn't really seeing the ball after impact, and I am not extending or raising my head from P7/A7 to P9/A9. Annika Sorenstam (who is right handed and right eye dominant) does the opposite move, at P8/A8 her eyes and neck are in the direction of the clubhead from a head swivel move in the downswing. Jim Furyk and David Duval do the same thing that she does and all 3 players shot sub 60 rounds... Could this be a magic move?
    • Uhh, these guys you are destroying, what scores do they usually shoot? they had low handicaps, they were on the golf team with me or for another high school.   You have a 28 HDCP, yet you hit the sweet spot consistently on your irons? for the most part, yes.    thank you for the suggestion, but I hate the feel and look of game improvement irons. which ones do you suggest?
    • Funny guy this Groucho, think he is trolling you Erik.  My story as someone who scores in the seventies when playing a good round (low eighties are more common). I really need my long game to be on. Hitting it 220-230y from the tee, playing a course at 6700y. Next I mostly have a wood or a hybrid to the green. Because of that I became a really good woods/hybrid player (practice it a lot during my rounds). There are two 440y par4's that I can't reach in two, stopped trying to make gir there (no more 3 woods out of my shoes to the green). Not that I hit every green, I even miss greens from 100y in, allways very happy to be on the green in regulation. Ngir is king for me. If not on the green, but almost, I try my Texas wedge (putter) to make up and down. I am not an elite player at all, but am really into scoring. Thinking about buying a chipper, because my chipping is below average. I take my driver out on every hole except par3's. I learned to hit a short gripped driver with an easy 70% swing 180-190y, when there is danger at 200+y, it works for me all the time.
