Your glove preference

MelloYelloMelloYello Upstate, SCMembers Posts: 3,374 ✭✭
I typically prefer a soft leather glove like a Footjoy StaSof or a Titleist PermaSoft. I try to save where I can but they're not cheap considering how quickly they wear out.



There are some situations (i.e. shoes) wherein paying double for a "higher grade" means that in the long run you'll save money by replacing the product less often. But gloves don't seem to be like that. The more durable gloves are the cheap varieties like the Footjoy WeatherSof. What you seem to pay for in the higher end stuff is the soft, cabretta leather.



My gloves seem to always wear out in the thumb pad area, particularly where my thumb joint is. If I use worn out gloves I will wear out the skin in just thumb joint and TBH, it's kind of a pain in the butt because it hurts and never heals. I've been wearing band-aids around my thumb for the last month it seems in hopes the area will heal.



Is this part of a bad grip, you think? Or do any of you have advice on which gloves might be more durable?

    I gave up on the "more durable" solution and just scouted cheap cabretta leather options. My preference is the MG Elite, currently $6.99 a piece. They used to do 2 for 1, but apparently no more.



    In any event, they are cheap, good quality, mail-order convenient, and ordering three or four at a time keeps me set for many, many months.

    Titleist Players Glove is my favorite. Comparable Footjoy 2nd. I also like Srixon's gloves OK for the price.

    MG all the way...I order a dozen at a time. Maybe not quite the quality of a $20+ cabretta glove, but waaaay better than any synthetic or cheaper leather glove you'll find on the shelves.

    Another vote for the MG gloves.. Once they break in they are very comfortable and seem to actually have better durability than other gloves I have used. And of course, can't beat the price.

    MG gloves are my go to. Pretty durable too.



    I use the dyna grip elite ($6.99 each) for on course and the dyna grip ($5.99) for practice sessions. The normal dyna grips seem to be more durable for practice

    Vice Duro for practice as it is slightly more reinforced. I find it to be more durable for thumping balls. Vice Pure for my gamer.

    Taylormade TP is the best I've used so far. Intersted in MG though as I go through about 1 glove per month. $25 a pop is pretty pricey.

    There have been an issue or two with MG gloves over the years, it cannot be denied. I assume that they are sourcing from various producers, or something, and there can be some differences in the products from time to time.



    Ordering MG gloves regularly for over five years, I've had one batch (two gloves) with pretty deffective velcro. I've heard a couple of stories concerning durability similar to the above.



    That being said, I've noticed similar inconsistencies with some of the higher priced gloves. Given the price, and the fact that I've been happy 99% of the time with my purchases, I'm willing to cut MG a little slack.



    We do it with TM when their drivers crack, or Ping when the plating starts peeling off their irons. Getting this stuff to market is a lot harder than it looks.

    Do yourself a favor, and don't EVER try a Bionic, even for just one round. If you do, you'll never want to wear anything else. They're more expensive, but last three times as long as anything else on the market, and the comfort level is just ridiculous.



    At the other end of the spectrum, I used MG for years, but got sick of having one out of every five or so gloves come with a thumb seam that ran down the middle of the finger instead of the side or something like that. Then used Costco three packs (usually Callaway) for quite awhile, but the fit on those was somewhat inconsistent; I always suspected factory seconds. By FAR the best before I tried Bionic were the Kirkland gloves at Costco, but they only sold those for a year or two before they disappeared.

    I despise gloves, they all fit differently, no matter the price, one will have fat fingers the next I can't get my index finger in.



    I feel I've spent way too much money on gloves and testing, may be going sans-glove and see what happens. Just switched to z-cords which seem prime to skip the glove, maybe it'll be awful we'll see.



    As for now despite some changes in fit, I've found my best combo of durability and feel and hot weather performance has been the under armour coolswitch

    Really like the fit and feel of the Ping gloves but the durability isn't the greatest. I've also had good luck with the Mizuno gloves as well.
  • golfgirlrobingolfgirlrobin Members Posts: 2,332 ✭✭
    I’m the oddball who hates the super soft high quality gloves. Even if they were free, I’d take the rougher feel of the WeatherSof over the StaySof. The increased durability during hot summers is an added bonus.



    With a pro shop discount, they’re about $8 a piece and I don’t have to buy something over the Internet that I don’t get to try on first.

    In case you are serious about going glove-free and don’t mind spending some money on it, I believe there is no better option then getting the BestGrips Microperf leather grips. They last forever, have good traction and won’t hurt your hands as much as other grips. Good in the rain too.



    I tried really hard to go glove-free and these grips were by far the best option for me. In the end I just feel more comfortable wearing a glove anyways and am back to using Crossline grips on my new clubs. But if I was trying to go glove-free again I’d definitely pony up and get the BestGrips again.



    As for gloves, I’ve somewhat given up the search and just use the Players glove now, but would be very happy to find an equally comfortable glove that lasted longer.

    Footjoy Pure Touch limited. Best feeling and fit glove for me after switching from Titleist players. No issues with durability since I always put it back in the sleeve after using it so it stays so soft and lasts until it rips.

    I like the bionic performance gloves. They last much longer than every other leather glove. In the summer I find myself using rain gloves a lot due to sweat. I use to just rotate about 4 gloves during a round but sweat still takes a toll on leather gloves.
