gloves - recommendations anyone?

Postby mishy Mon May 25, 2009 2:41 pm

hey - so ive had a really excellent pair of g-force gloves for the past couple of years and they are on the verge of falling apart ... so its time to ditch the smelly pair (that i cant even keep in my room anymore) and find a new pair...

anyone have a really good pair of gloves that they would recommend?

Ive been looking at the new reebok 9k gloves - what are these like to play in?

cheers

King 2s seem the way forward, or if you don't have the cash, the original Kings.

i currently have the king's and would have said them but their very hard to come by these days as the king 2s have taken over. Both cracking gloves either way!
MCds are also really good, had them before. Really nice thin palm so you have a good feel of the shaft. Only thing is they are, like most warrior gloves, very bulky whereas the brines are much smaller. Cant go wrong with either tho. :D

I would recommend supercrosse's as well, but as brine have stopped making them and they're difficult to find I wont.

also Kings are more flexible and just as protective.

I've noticed that with the G22's as well...
Not really the palms, but the inside if the fingers have deteriorated fast. I now have tape wrapped around 5 digits after about a season to cover holes.
Protective, good grip, flexible but not at all durable.
