Brass Eagleness. Gets soaked w/ paint and oils up your grip.
These gloves were my first gloves and I love them. Well, of course I love them, are you kidding, they brought me through my terrible noobhood. Have you ever been shot in the bare knuckle with RPS premium at about 270 fps. Well if not then it hurts enough to make you wet your pants and go running to your mommy, especially if the "soft" shells rip through your skin. Yeah, this happened to me (but I didn't wet my pants.) and now that I have these gloves it doesn't hurt anymore. If you favor the half-finger style or you need a boost through noobhood, then these gloves are great. If the coshy pads don't just bounce a threatening projectile then they will certainly relieve you of the embarrasment when your mom has to write a note to the teacher saying, "Due to a horrendous paintball welt on my son's/daughetr's hand, he/she was not able to finish the homework writing assignment. P.S. This won't happen again because I'm going to the proshop to buy him some sweet Brass Eagle half-finger gloves." Can you even imagine? These gloves are great and go buy them for the padding and comfortability, plus they don't look to shabby either.
