One thing we do is listen to our professional players. The pros wanted a glove that wasn't a glove. They wanted all the protection of a glove, without the interference of having their fingers covered. By having your fingers covered, you actually loose agility and speed when rolling the trigger. Our new Meta Glove combines the best of both worlds. A lightweight, unhindered fingerless glove design that offers protection on the back of the hand and palm, and features a supportive wrist closure. The Meta Glove is like a second skin, so comfortable that you will almost forget you're wearing it at all.
The Dye Meta Gloves are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase them new.

Wrist wrap can be loose
Not a lot of protection on back of hands
This are a nice pair of gloves that I wear in the summer. They do the job and dont cost an arm and a leg. They also dont turn your hands black like most of the fingerless gloves out there. They come in a few colors and are built very well.

Comfortable to wear and easy to grab stuff
The price and the dye your hands if you dont wash them.
The gloves are great. The fit is comfortable and have great grip and have good padding on top of them.When i wear them i forget they are one. I have not got hit in the hand yet only the finger but i think it wont hurt with the gloves. If you buy them make sure you wash them before use because they will dye your hans badly trust me i thought my hands were bruised or something when i took them off.

They look great
Padded at the top of the hand
A little pricey but there great quality
I purchased these because i was using some old racuet ball gloves earlier. The gloves turned my hands completely black and it would take me foreve rto get that stuff off. Finally i decided to invest in a decent pair of gloves and i saw these.
Now all gloves are light. But with the mesh like stuff theyre made of and the fingerless design it wouldnt suprise me if these were the lightest gloves on the market.
This alows for quicker trigger pulls and you can just do so much more withought having your fingers covered. Dye has also made it so that your middle, ring, and pinky finger have absolutely nothing restricting them. Theres just a big hole to stick all of them three. Great idea in my opinion.
Like i said earlier these are made of a mesh like material, so they are very breatbale. The fingerless design helps with that also.
I think dye puts alot of time into making there stuff functional, yet good looking and imo they succeeded here. I get many comments on how cool they look.
I have been sliding around in these and theyve held out great. Now sign of wearing out at all
The glove are padded at the top of the hand and that helps you get bounces. More bounces= more playing time. Yes!
The wrap to tighten the gloves on doubles as wrist support, and having something supported cant be bad....
Now the only thing i have bad to say about these is there price. Dyes stuff is always expensive but there stuff is always very nice and high quality.
If your looking for a good pair of gloves that off your hands the protection they need and that dont restrict your fingers get these.

Very thin neoprene; may not stand up to repeated abuse
Good gloves considering what they where designed for. Very very light weight. The grip pads on the palm are useless, but thats not really a problem for anyone with any kind of sticky grips on their frame.
The material seems a little thin, but we'll see how they're doing in july or so. So far no problems.
I use a set of the core elbow pads, so this is just an observation on my part, but it seems like these are kind of a gimmick since you can buy the C8 elbow pads and get the exact same thing combined with pads for not to much more $$$.
But like I said, if you already have pads, these are great
Good gloves, but dont get credit card happy and go buying a bunch of redundant gear. If you are also in need of pads, I would skip these over and head for the C8s.
But on a stand alone basis, these are very good glove that i will happily use for as long as they last.
