I like Footjoy Sta Sof and Weather Sof. Honestly sometimes i like the Weather Sof more than the Sta Sof. I wonder what this new $24 dollar glove from footjoy is all about. Maybe just a good batch of Stasofs?

the mizuno retroflex is, in my opinion, after trying a few different gloves, the best all around glove, it fits great, has really good durability, and compared to a lot of the other popular gloves it's a steal, it's 10 or 11 bucks at golfsmith.

I use the WeatherSof right now, I've tried the Ping M-Fit and a few others before. Next I'm gonna try a premium Cabretta glove and see what the hype is all about.

On a somewhat related note, a lot of Titleist/FJ players this weekend were using the FcIFlex instead of the Stasoft....pretty interesting.

The best feeling, best fitting, best performing glove for me by far is the Bridgestone Tour... the downside they last about half as long as the Sci Flex, or TM Burner gloves that I also use.

I still use the Bridgestone gloves, but wish they would last a little longer.

Master Grip (mpggolf.com) DynaGrip Elite at 2 for $14 is flat out the best glove I've ever worn at any price.  

"While the DynaGrip Elite is the best glove you can buy, it is not for everyone. It's a glove for the golfers who value feel over durability. In fact, this is the quality of glove preferred and worn by many Tour professionals.

DynaGrip Elite starts with thinner, softer Cabretta leather for the most sensitive feel you have ever experienced in a golf glove. The Elite also features a stretchable nylon hinge across the first knuckles so you can take your grip without tugging on the leather.

Like the style preferred by Tour pros, this glove does not include a snap-on ball marker and is available only in a classic silvery-white color."

These are amazingly durable for such fine leather.  Lastly, they fit my had absolutely perfectly.

My favorites are:

Normal play/ practice:  Mizunio skintite or bionic(the bionic is a tank and washable)
I am getting away from wearing a glove most of the time in the warmer months.

Rain: Mizuno rain glove

Cold:  Mizuno cold weather gloves.

I've been shocked by how good this glove is.  I stopped by Golfsmith for gloves on the way to  the course a couple months back, and they were out of my size in the Titleist Perma** that I used to play.  I tried a couple of different gloves on an bought two of the Mizuno Retroflex.  Really good glove, and for $4 less per...I may not switch back.

I LOVE THE BIONIC.  Perfect padding and grip.  The feel helps me to not grip the club too tightly.  Too bad they are so spendy.

No gloves. I use to use the Weathersoft but I prefer the bare hands, I can feel the grip pressure and connection to the club much better.

You SHOULD try this one. Expensive, but lasts longer and it is washable.

I've got several gloves, I always keep 3 Dri-fit Tours in the bag and 3 Titleist Players Techs.  I have weather-soft's for wet weather, but recently I purchased a Boggy Golf glove to try and while I'm not a huge fan during dry weather, I haven't found a better wet weather glove.

The older Maxfli Tour gloves and now the TaylorMade Targa and Tour gloves seem to fit my hand the best.

The G-Sok is good too but is unlike the other synthetic palmed gloves you have listed as its palm is all leather, which feels and grips well but does absorb sweat reducing its durability.

I have good things about Oakley, Under Armour and HJ but have never seen them at retail.  The new Bionic Tour glove is intriguing but costly!

Currently, I'm working through a stash of Nike Elite Feel gloves that I bought up a year or so back at a very agreeable price.

They're a cracking glove. Hardwearing, fit well, and a no nonsense design with no annoying stretchy lycra bits. Basically, it does what it says on the tin. Plus they're three or four quid cheaper than the Titleist version.
