Just inquiring what gloves people find are the best?  Came across some good reviews


but want to ask your opinion on how often to replace...I mean I have waited in the past until the holes started appearing and I am guessing that is too late ;)

How do they do when wet i.e. playing in the rain?  That is where I have noticed that most gloves fail...and when you say soft feel I am just worries that on a wet day they may not work so well...

I use the drift Nike tours..... They are simply amazing!

I golf like 4-5 time a week so they really only last a month....

I usually only buy Mastergrip Dyna Grip Elite at $13.95 BOGO.  Great feel and last a good while.

Bought about 20 Adidas Exert last year on sale and while the glove is okay the sizing is a joke.  Some of the gloves fit fine while others were bigger than the tag indicated.

Recently found HIRZL gloves on sale at Golf Galaxy ($14.99) and now have 5 of the TRUST Feel.  So far the best I've found for summer and supposedly they're even better in the rain.

I use Footjoy Stra Soft......   I always have a new one attached to my bag so if the one i am wearing rips i have a replacement waiting on the bag.  I usually get a few weeks out of each glove, depending on weather conditions.

FJ Sci flex hands down! Buy two then buy another everytime the first one wears out and rotate.

I tried those. They do last but have ALOT of padding in the palm. I think it reduced feel imo.

I have two Mizuno Retroflex gloves. Don't know who makes them. Just bought a new one because the old(er) one is holding up so well. Best glove I have ever had, hands down! And relatively cheap at $12.99. Was recommended by a valued golf shop owner that has been around for a long time and plays a lot.
Oh and I don't play a single Mizuno club so it isn't brand loyalty(blindness).

Master Grip Dyna Grip @ 2 for 11.95 all cabretta leather, playin in 100+ weather and I can still get in 18 without having to change to a dry glove and believe me it will be soaked with sweat. I play 3-4 times a week and I typically open up a new one every month or so.
Their C4 balls aren't bad either.

Can't stand anything other than the Footjoy Sta-Sof or Titleist Players, both of which are about the same to me.  The lower end ones feel too thick.  I bet I get 3-4 weeks out of a glove during the golf season.

Footjoy WeatherSof. My hands sweat terribly, and the synthetic material is much better than leather when moist. Cheaper, too.

Footjoy Weather Sof here. I've tried everything else and always come back to the weathersof. Main reasons: they fit real well and they last forever. I either play 18 holes or do a full 100 ball driving range session everyday. I have two gloves in my bag, and both gloves have been there since the end of last season. I rotate the gloves between range duty and course duty. They're both very dirty looking but neither one has holes or rips yet. For $12 a glove, I don't think you're going to find a better deal.

I got one free, and while I usually wear a Medium, the Small Exert was too big! What the heck?

I really like the $7 wilson staff gloves they sell at sport chalet. They're cheap and get the job done.

I prefer my softball batting glove.  Far superior grip to that of any golf glove.

Me too!  But why do they put leather on a weather proof glove at all?  If your hands sweat the leather IS the problem and not needed for “reinforcement”. It turns to stiff cracked jerky in a short time. I like an all weather glove that is all synthetic with NO leather. The Footjoy WeatherSof would be great without the leather thumb and palm.

The Master Grip wonder glove. You can’t wear it out. It is cheap enough to be disposable. Machine washable. It looks a little odd like loose felt but works great.

Well I think I'll be trying out a whole bunch of the above to see which ones suit me best :)  Seems like everyone has an opinion and different gloves work for different people.  No clear winner though...Interesting.  Thanks for all your responses.

Good responses above, but I'd like to see more suggestions.  Anyone like any of the nike gloves?  I've been playing the 2011 Tech Xtreme gloves, and while the fit great and feel great, they don't last me very long.

Another vote for fj weathersofs. IMO, they get even tackier when you sweat. This has lasted the longest than other gloves in the past. For me.
