Hey all, I've been using the titleist players glove for awhile now, I like the grip and the feel, obviously not the greatest durability but that's ok, I assumed that would be the case.

I see guys that are all titleist and some are using the FJ gloves and some use the titleist. JT always is wearing the pure touch limited, others with different kinds, I know it's preference but I don't have close access to try them on any time soon unfortunately.

Big question is wondering if you guys see a big difference in durability and feel between the FJ pure touch limited and the Titleist Players glove, thanks for the feedback!

In my experience they are very similar gloves. I'm a ML Cadet in both.

Pure Touch is a tad thinner in my experience, and sizing is always spot on.  It's the best glove on the market, IMO, but you pay for that quality. Durability-wise, they are pretty similar.

I would agree that the pure touch is the best gloves, their sizing is very consistent from one glove to another, but you also pay a premium for the glove.

I see the expensive price obviously but thanks all for the feedback and the information on size, that's the most important to me, I get frustrated on the players glove (I wear regular large) sometimes having a tight index finger or maybe a loose thumb, fit is different across each glove.

I know what you are saying, I had that same experience with the Players and StaSofs.  I have bought over 10 PureTouch gloves in the last few years, and all have fit exactly the same for me.

My favorite was the all white Titleist Permasoft.  Unfortunately it looks like they've discontinued it.  I switched to the FJ Contour FLX and don't like the feel or durability nearly as much.  I just ordered five of my the 2016 Permasofts from TGW.

I used to wear the FJ Pure Touch because it was always a perfect fit and is the best glove on the market IMO but the poor durability combined with price had me switch to the Titleist players which is pretty close in terms of feel and is a little more durable and is ~$20 instead of ~$30. For me the $10 savings and prolonged usage is worth the occasional poor fitting glove.

Also do yourself a favor and take a look at MG gloves, a couple different options and are dirt cheap, something like $6 a glove. Much better durability compared the Pure Touch and Players without sacrificing too much feel.

I actually find Titleist and Footjoy to fit a little bit different. Quality is about the same, but the Titleist seems to have a bit shorter thumb, which fits me better.

I use the Players and Pure Touch interchangeably. The Pure Touch is thinner and just as durable imo but of course that cost. :(
I don't buy any gloves online as I need to try on any brand of glove to find those that fit properly.

i use both for a number of reasons but they are both great.  I do think the Titleist is thinner, costs less and doesn't last as long.  Cadet M

I love the Pure Touch! Love the feel and the fit. I agree with some others have said, some of the Titleist Player's have a tight index finger. I personally think the Pure Tough lasts longer (doesn't turn black, get stiff and "crunchy", etc).

This glove has probably 10-11 rounds on it and 3 big range sessions of 100-150 balls (making a swing change) and ignore the middle finger too, i killed a mosquito after it bit me. I'm really impressed, it lasted probably 1/3rd or more longer than a Titleist players glove. and honestly it never turned hard or crusty, and the glove is pretty shape besides ripping out on the palm, i always wear gloves out on the palm and thumb the most quickly.

I am just lucky to find a glove that fits me! Lately, I've been using the FJ Weathersof. It lasts me a long time.

I also tried an Under Armor glove and that barely last 2 rounds before it tore. I tried another one and same thing...barely 2 rounds. They aren't cheap either.

The Weathersoft lasts me over 10 rounds before I decide to retire it.

I have tried all of the Titleist gloves and none of them fit me. I wear a Men's Small or Ladies Large.

And I found a Ping glove last year that I loved but now I can't find it anywhere.

Those Titleist Permasofts were great, still have a couple lying around somewhere but yeah, they felt amazing. I think they just ran a little bit if I remember correctly

Without sounding too mean that glove wear looks way too heavy for that much use. Have you had someone check your grip and grip pressure? I've always been a fan of Harvey Penick's "if you're developing blisters and calluses you're not gripping the club right"

I have not tried Titleist's premier glove but the Pure Touch gloves were incredible. I purchased 2 the summer I took my PAT and they lasted me 2 seasons playing 2 or 3 times a week. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THE BOX THEY COME IN AND STORE YOUR GLOVE IN IT AFTER EVERY ROUND. The boxes help regulate moisture. throw your glove on every once in a while and put some hand lotion all over it.

If you don't think you can consistently take care of your glove like that then you're better off purchasing the permasoft or lower end FJ glove.
