The gloves from MG suck but if you pay $6 for a glove how long do you expect it to last? 

 

i get an average of 3 rounds out of the MG, so i buy 4-5 at a time......and i can use my own logo or picture on the closure...

 

they do get slippery in the rain though

To each his own I suppose.  As noted in my previous post, I've been incredibly pleased with MG gloves since I started using them and there's been a lot of positive reviews by other members as well.  But obviously not everything will work for everyone.

they are very thin and cheap and get torn up pretty easy.....doesnt sytop me from using them as i buy 4 at a time.....just dont expect them to be like a $30 glove,.....but who wants to spend a yton of money on gloves anyway....when it lasts 3 rounds, you toss it and put on a freash glove......its much better than losing a $5 ball 3x a round

While I'm not in total agreement on the "torn up pretty easy" part, absolutely in agreement on the rest of your post!

Another huge fan of the Kirkland gloves here, 4 for $20 and real cabretta leather, probably 90% as good as any Titleist or Footjoy for 25% of the price.

 

Regardless of whatever glove I wear mine get so crusty so fast and I try to make sure it airs out nicely whenever possible, does anybody have any tips to stop this? I don't know if its the salt in sweat that makes this happen or what but I feel like there's no way everybody else has it as hilariously bad as I do. $25 gloves are rock hard within 2 or 3 outings. They always spring back to live perfectly after you put them on and stretch your fingers for a few seconds but still would like a solution if anybody knows

i use cord grips, so the tear up my gloves pretty good.  i still buy them all the time

Good point.....cords will eat them up a little faster.  I was a NDMC/MCC+4 guy for many years and with the cord portion being in the left hand, I can definitely say there was a bit of a difference in the effect the grips had on the life of the glove.

My hands sweat...ALOT! I take my glove off after every shot and do everything possible to make them last. My main requirements are Cabretta and no lycra anywhere (makes my glove slip). I've noticed no difference in longevity between a $20 glove and a $6.99 MG. While I will occasionally buy upper level gloves if I find a really good deal, the MG serves me very well.

I picked up one of these recently:  https://circle15golf.com/products/the-glove-hub-2-0

 

Seems to be keeping them in nice shape between rounds, but I've only  had it for about a month now so the jury is still out.

you may want to go with a different type of glove....one that has a lot of ventilation or one that is built for moisture.

 

FootJoy WeatherSof or the Bionic AquaGrip Glove are two great options

I get a few dozen rounds plus a few dozen practice sessions with each pair of my gloves (including MG and Kirkland). This means I only really need 3 or 4 pairs per full season. YMMV, of course.

 

But a friend who does have hands that pretty are sweaty has switched to some rain gloves, and he loves them compared to regular cabretta leather. I think he's using the Finger Ten brand. They last him a long time and are washable, too.

My hands sweat a lot and I end up crusty gross gloves often as well. Best method to avoid it I have found is that if I’m playing on a hot day I will use three gloves in play for the day. I’ll rotate through them as the day goes on and I also am constantly taking my glove off between shots. This helps extend the life of each of the gloves by a lot.

Kudos to MG for their marketing. I've only seen them on Amazon and website ads that I didn't ask for after searching based on this thread. Prior to that I'd never heard of them. Somehow it seems majority of the posts here imply that most have at least tried them. 

you cant go wrong with the price, thats for sure. and they have a custom glove to you in like 3 days....just dont expect great things from it....its good for a few rounds and then you MAY have to move on....but 4 or 5 of them can get you through a few months and you have only spent $30

For several years I have played the BIONIC StableGrip. It has finger ridges that fall between the knuckles, and a reinforced palm. Cost is $25 to $27.

 

Helps me get a consistent anchor on the left hand, and these are very durable. Three of them will last me a season for both play and practice. All I have to do is wash them with saddle soap every few weeks. Usually one will be good into the following season.

 

I tried the StableGrip because of an odd experience I had with handball gloves. Years ago I worked newspaper in Oklahoma. One of the sportswriters knew a guy who was shutting down his sporting goods shop. The sportie bought two boxes of left-handed handball gloves on clearance and offered them for $5 each as golf gloves. I got two, and they lasted almost two full seasons.

 

Future: MGs may be on the horizon, the BIONICS are starting to feel a little thick.

Same here.   I will ruin a $20 Titleist glove just as fast as the MGs because I sweat so much, no matter how fast I take my glove off after I hit.   So I stock up on the MGs, buy 10 at a time.  Also, even after they are kind of shot because of the sweat, they are still useful for a short while again after they dry out.  So I use the old ones on the driving range and rotate them.  The guys I play with make fun of how many old gloves I have in my bag,  but I get the most out of them that way.   Break out the new gloves for tournaments or when all the old ones are really, really bad/shot. 

 

Is the MG as good as the Titleist, not quite, but still pretty good.  Is it a better deal at $7?  No contest.

I'm sure the costco glove is great value but good lord is the branding way too ugly/loud for a glove.

It's basically a direct knock off of the Titleist branding for their gloves. So it's not really any louder. It just has a different brand name on it. So if that is something that really matters, then there's hundreds of other choices to pick from

I would say the Kirkland glove feels like a quality glove but for only $5. 

 

+1 for Kirkland, they do wear faster than some premium gloves I've used in the past but for a quarter of the unit price that's all good by me. When you're making the $300 Costco run it's a no brainer to toss in a 4-pack of the KSig gloves!

The Foot Joy Pure Touch is like butter. Amazing feel and worth every penny. Once you put one on, you are forever spoiled.


my hand also sweats a lot, and I will alternate gloves every 3 or 4 holes and they last quite a while, and maintain their baby skin soft feel.

Sweat is usually my biggest issue with glove longevity. On really hot days, I usually carry at least two gloves to use for the round and I always use an old glove at the range. I have had good luck with Footjoy Weathersof gloves in that they tend to dry out well and maintain their sizing(don't stretch) and don't stiffen up.

 

My other issue is my fingers are shorter, so usually go with the cadet, which not all manufacturers make.

My favorite glove is the Titleist glove.  I'm sure it is mental, but I like it better than the comparable FJ version.  I have a hard time shelling out the cash for the ultra premium gloves, so I looked for better bargains.  

 

I'm a fan of the Costco glove.  I don't think there is a better glove deal around.  I prefer them to the MG's.  The last 4 pack that I picked up a month ago ran really small for some reason, so I gave them away to my neighbor.

 

I just tried the Maxfli glove from Dicks on a 2 for deal last week.  I like it, but the Costco glove is a better price.  I would have no problem playing the Maxfli glove if I did not have access to a Costco.  Based on the comments, I need to try the MG's again.

What people miss about gloves. If I spend $60 ( $20x3) on 3 gloves and rotate them every round, or 9 holes, and don’t let them get too wet or sweaty, they will last longer or as long a several $10 gloves where I wear all the time, one at a time.

 

if the question is economical, I understand the bargain hunting. I have ordered MG gloves for “practicing” gloves and I liked them. For me having  a really nice thin soft glove is worth the extra $. Gloves are like socks and shoes for me, premium products are usually worth it and there are plenty of places to cut costs playing g golf, that the difference can be made up
