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!

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
