    The bionic gloves use to be good but the quality of their newer versions is terrible.

    Completely agree and I told them just that when they made the change. Luckily, I found some of the older models for a decent price and still use those ones.

    I’ve found the Mizuno Tec Flex ro be super durable.

  • mtiger10mtiger10 Members Posts: 276 ✭✭✭✭

    I've used many different brands down through the years but the FJ weathersof is the most durable to me. Proper care and storing flat in the package or ziploc bag is also crucial to glove life.

    I wear an XXL cadet, and can’t seem to find options other than footjoy. My hand is far too big, and my fingers far too short to use an XXL, or an XL cadet. Anyone with the same problem find a durable option?

    I'm sure I'm not the only one out there but I tend to burn through golf gloves super fast. I am constantly cleaning my grips so I know that is not the issue. I use the FootJoy StaSof's which I absolutely love but at $22 a pop I which I could find something just as durable but not as cheap. I literally tried the Callaway Apex Tour glove and after one session on the range I had torn through the palm of the glove.

    Am I gripping too tight? Sure. However, if anyone has any recommendations of durable cabratta leather golf gloves out in the market at a reasonable price, I would love to hear what else you guys use.

    This might not resonate with you, but I do not wear gloves when practicing for two reasons:
    1. My gloves last longer since they're not getting used as much.
    2. I have a fear of wet hands and it helps get practice in the heat of the summer with that sensation so I'm not as nervous over a shot.

    As far as gloves go I won't wear anything but the Titleist premium or GFore. I wear the Titleist when playing regular rounds or by myself, GFore when playing on weekends, scrambles, etc because I like the looks of them.

    Proper storage helps extend the life of a glove. I use the TM Tour gloves which are fairly thin leather so they can crap the bed on me as soon as like 4-5 rounds if I don't put it back in the plastic and keep in a cool, dry area. I'm always looking for something that will last me longer so I'll probably try these MG Gloves. Even if it only lasts 2 weeks... could be worth it.

    The crazy thing to me is the MG glove lasts longer than a Titleist player's glove would last me. Every Titleist players glove that I have bought would eventually get to where the velcro would not hold. The MG velcro is solid.

  • BTeeBTee ClubWRX Posts: 33 ClubWRX

    I use MG and they run a little big. I also like the FJ Weathersof 2 pack is usually $20 or less.

  • GalangaGalanga Members Posts: 712 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I have been using FootJoy rain gloves (lead hand only) for at least a year. Have three that I rotate. Great with moisture (although they don't need to be moist) and they last longer than any leather glove I have used.

    I’ll second the Kirkland glove. I have played 6 rounds with my first of the 4 pack and it is still holding up fine. And even if it wasn’t, it’s $24 for the four-pack instead of $22 for one. If it lasts more than 1/4th as long, you’re coming out ahead.

    Love mine!

    FJ rain gloves work well for durability.

    Has anyone tried the Ben Hogan Legend gloves? I try to buy a cabretta glove under $12 a pair and they are on my radar.

    Didn't see anyone recommend 'zero friction' yet. I found this one in a German golf shop. Think they are American brand?
    I bought the cabretta leather glove which is a single size fitting. It has a flexible breathable material between the fingers.
    2 weeks later, I went back and got 4 more.
    They're not good in the rain though.
    They are soft, stretchy and come with a small tee.
    I burned one quickly, but from my own fault having bad grip or turning the club through the swing.
    They have a few colours available.

  • Z1ggy16Z1ggy16 Members Posts: 7,827 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    My MG's just showed up by the way. Feel isn't quite as good as my Taylormade Tour Pref, but it's close. If I give the TM a 10/10, I give these a 7. For literally 1/4 the price... It's worth it so far. Now to see if they last. My Biggest gripe with the TM glove is even after caring for it, just short of lotion'ing the **** things like real skin, they get pretty firm and start to stretch out rather fast. They are the best glove though I've ever used for the price right out of the package though.

    I wear a cadet large normally and the regular large was tight for a round until it stretched a little. They are a beast to get on and off with sweaty hands. I will probably go XL next time. However at the rate they are wearing out that could be a while.

    FootJoy WeatherSof.
    I've had 2 gloves in rotation in 100* Texas heat for at least 10 rounds now. I rotate the gloves every hole. They probably have another 10 rounds in them.

  • ctsgolfctsgolf Members Posts: 186 ✭✭✭

    Taylormade Tour Preferred are my choice. I have 3 "range gloves" in my bag right now because they just won't tear open. Going to have to just start throwing them out at this rate because my current gamer is almost ready to be demoted.

    Footjoy in black instead of white. They last about 3x longer for me, I think bleaching the gloves white affects the durability.

    The Bionic glove models are all quite durable - they better be, costing around $25 each. Three Bionic Stablegrips lasted me through last season, and one of those is still in play this year.

    Ensure the colored glove is colorfast. I ruined a pair of khaki shorts on a rainy day when the dark glove bled dye onto the thigh area.

    The older bionic gloves were durable but the newer versions are very poor quality.

  • LeftDaddyLeftDaddy Members Posts: 780 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I’ve always been a bionic fan but stopped buying them last year because they are so thick (and I was looking for something with more feel). I bought the FootJoy Stasof or whatever it’s called and hate it. It has a stitch or something in one of the fingers that scratches me, and it has worn out really quickly.

    I have a TM Tour Preferred that was given to me and it is great. I hope I can buy it when I need one.

    From this thread I’m thinking the MG would be a good choice in the future, though. Thanks!

    The most durable you will ever buy is a Hirzl Performance 2.0. Best bar none for wet weather also.
    Kangaroo hide palm and fingers treated for non-slip, and flexible synthetic back of hand.
    Expensive, however they will last for several hundred rounds.

    I think the most durable is a poor phrasing of question. Which glove will you get the most out of for $20? Kirkland by far. 3 gloves for $15, allows me to get that new glove feeling and very good durability. They have held up much better than Callaway, Titleist, Mizuno, Nike or FJ for me.

    I remember buying Kangaroo leather gloves off the bay 15 years ago. They lasted forever. And, ever... Don't understand why they stopped making them. I thought kangaroos are about as prevalent in Australia as deer in the US...
