I'm with Andrew on this one. FJ's TropiCool grips wet or dry, and the fibre is so sheer, you can feel the breeze through the fabric. Great feel too because of how thin it is. Downside is that the light coloured fabric blackens quickly. I've been told it's washable though I've yet to try that.

Another good option is Adidas AdiZero gloves. Another all weather that's thin, light, and with great feel.
Bro, i always wash my Tropic Cool after each game, so washing is never an issue to this glove.

i feel that Tropic Cool works fantastic in dry condition, but not in the rain. So i always have a pair of FJ Rain Glove in my bag just in case ...

Thanks for the info Killer. Got my first one ready for washing, but can all that black be washed clean out of the glove?

I've used the TropiCool when damp and so far so good, not entirely wet though.

Haha... Like you, I also have the same FJ Rain Glove for rainy days. Very Happy

unfortunately, the black does not come off completely on the white gloves, its just part of problem with white anything Smile

Thanks bro. Ya, always a problem when white meets black. My iron headcovers are now permanently off white, lol.

Lucky you. My 7 iron did fly out of my hand on the third hole par three at Tanjong Puteri's C course, and into the water hazard. Had to wade in until almost waist deep to retrieve it with bare feet. That's why now I also have the same rain glove as you. lol! 

Little known but perhaps one day useful fact: when an iron is submerged in water, it stands erect. The heavy head sinks it to the bottom, and the rubber grip floats so the shaft stands vertical. I found this out first hand. geek

No kidding! Waist deep? As if the rain has not made you wet enough!

What was Phil M wearing during the last BMW when it was pouring? He had both hands on gloves.

@ s-killer. It was because I was wet through oredi that I decided to go in after it. It was funny when it happened, but not after one nine when I realised that I wouldn't be able to replace that iron which was part of discontinued range.

@ jumpz. It was steel, but I don't think it would have mattered even if it was graphite. It was the air trapped within the shaft that was making the grip end float.

Will the shaft corrodes on the inside surface even if you managed to slavage it? Unless you disassemble the head/grip and blow dry the inside of the shaft ...

Any bro here can recommend where to get Fit 39 gloves at good price currently? Golf Simply lady boss says stock coming in but she said the same thing like half a year back. 

I keep losing my gloves and seems like pricing ranges anywhere from $23 - $29 elsewhere.
i paid ard 18bucks, but its more durable den the FJ i'm currently using, and the grip is goodddd....

fit39 is a good glove. but after washing it, it becomes hard and not really nice to use. i switch from fit39 to FJ all weather (white colour), gives me good grip and it feels really soft.
