Review: These are decent gloves. They're great for the price. But, they have some shortcomines...

The palm/fingers have virtually no grip. These are the reason why I bought new grips for my gun because it just slipped around with these glvoes on. However, after a few games I noticed that they were getting more grippy, but they still could be better in this respect.

The gloves are flexible enough for many player to play fully gloved, but they will not allow you to get past 12 or so bps, even after breaking them in. One thing you can do is cut the piece of rubber connecting the rubber on the back of the hand ot the fingers and give you some more range of motion. Fortunately, there is double stitching that allows you to cut the fingers without ruining the gloves, and you can achieve very high rates of fire without sacrificing too much protection.

They do look very nice, in my opinion. They seem extremely durable, and have enough protection on the palm to make the glove last through a season of dives. There is perhaps too much rubber padding on the top, but this isn't too cumbersome. They also have a built in terry cloth area that I use for wiping mask hits/spleatter between games.

And, they cost a lot less than some other gloves out there.

EDIT: I just discovered a way to greatly improve your rate of fire. The double stitched area creates a lot of friction, so I cut away the double stitching along the silver lining between the fingers on my index/middle finger (after cutting off the tips). MAKE SURE that you don't cut off the double stitching on the lining lining on the ring-finger side of your middle finger, however, since this will destroy your gloves. This made a world of difference, and I can shoot about 1-2 bps slower than if I had no gloves on, and I don't think I've decreased their life time very much.
Conclusion: I wouldn't buy these again, but they might be the right glove for some people. I think a new release of this glove could have a lot of potential if they thought out some aspects a little bit more.
