Not sure if we are referring to the same Bionic gloves, I bought one some time back but I got turned off by the paddings. I feel that it killed the "sweet feeling" when hitting the ball nicely. But again maybe it's just me.

I just want gloves which have a good grip. Typically, these are the synthetic type which work well for me. I should also re-grip my irons. It's time.

Either that or get new irons. Not time yet, though.

I'm currently on the TM Tour Preferred real cabretta leather gloves.

Got em for less than $15 a pair at Golf House's sale. They are so velvety soft, even when a little moist with sweat, and the grip is pretty damn good too I must say. The real kicker for me is that they are so thin that its almost like playing without gloves. At times I even forget to take them off for putting as they feel like a second skin.

It's lasted me for nearly two months now (twice a week range, twice a week on green) and has only just started to break (the holes at the base of the fingers are starting to get bigger) but I've got 3 more pairs at home Very Happy

I've tried the FJ syn gloves and while they are probably the best syn gloves that I've tried out there - but I'll never go back to them after using real cabretta leather gloves!

There are lots of players who dispense with gloves. I suppose the rule is that you play with what you're comfortable. If you feel that your hands/palms can take it, then do away with the gloves Smile

I think WMF was asking cos you said that your swing "like no strength."

Anyway, 7i going to 125m and Driver going to 195m is a wee bit short (in my opinion) but this could be due to various reasons. In my mind, the 7i should send you about 135m and the Driver to about 220m but again, distances in golf are incredibly subjective. What is important is accuracy and consistency. I'd take a consistently accurate 125m 7i over and above an erratic 150m 7i.

I always remember an advice from an old uncle "accurancy not distance.... don't force it" "P

luckily yup, I'm more accurate than most of my kaki...

had a game at Raffles yesterday and this advice help my game cheers

7i=125 & Driver=195 ... like that, swing with no strength is good enough (provided it is straight lah)...
At least you won't get tired at the end of the game
cheers

conclusion: stick to gloveless grip.
