Been changing cloves almost on a monthly basis, have been thinking buying slight more expensive ones i.e. $20 and above. Wondering if anyone have any recommendations?

I was told that FJ Weathersoft gloves are pretty good but I'm not a fussy glove user so anything which fits usually works for me.

Yeah, someone mentioned similar comments as well on FJ weather soft and Callaway black gloves.

I have been trying those al-cheapo gloves that you can get from GN, those are like use and throw in a month type of thing. Also if you have sweaty palms, it doesn't really hold yr clubs well. Also, they are easily worn out.

I am a big fan of Fit39 gloves. You can get them at Far East Shopping Centre, the shop opp of Transview. Think each is sold for $20 or $22.

Fit39 very popular in Thailand...
There are also some "rebranded fit-39" looking gloves I saw at Bishan driving range.. wonder if these are the real McCoy.

I'm not fussy with gloves but some tell me that the Titleist Players or players Tech are good.

I'm using some FJ gloves right now. Dunno which. Got them at a decent price. 2 gloves for RM57 at the pro shop in JB where I sometimes play.

Not all gloves drop below $12 during sales but I agree, we should be paying well under $20 (and ideally about $12-15) for decent gloves during sales.

I kind of like the Peryy Gear Rain Flex II. Cheap and good. Has this velvety feel. Costs about $12.

Anything white from FJ like weathersofs do just fine for me.

Sidenote: I read before the great one goes thru at least 6 in an 18 hole round. I guess thats what it takes to compete at the highest level.....












Or he just have very very sweaty palms...

i like players...nike's dri-fit tour seems to feel like paper after a round or 2...my titleist feels good after after 5-6 games.

next question...how many games does your gloves last?

I'd say about 15-20 games. Depending on weather condition too and how much care I take with the gloves.

i found the Pride real cabretta leather glove a steal for money @ $7 each during the last GN HF sale... similarly the burner leather glove for $14 at the last sale...

i have sweaty palms too and i wear my glove even during putting...

i found the leather glove to be more forgiving to sweat (the glove smells less) and much more comfty... on the down side, it doesnt last as long as the synthetic ones (or juz me gripping too hard).... the glove broke through about 5-6 games...

for me, any real cabretta glove @ $15 is good, as long as it fits!
