LEACHY48:
Hey guys.

So back at the beginning of January I reached out to Graham to get some custom gloves made up, because I saw @Tailendfielder's pair which were absolutely bloody brilliant.

I drove up to Graham's from Reading (he is based in 5 mins from Edgbaston) and it was worth every minute of the trip. He is so knowledgeable and so worth going to see if you can. Every inch of the gloves is custom, from the finger lengths, to the palm depths, to the padding, and the colours. Graham can even customise the finger stills in the glove in order to offer more protection. I have broken my middle left finger twice keeping and because of that I got a reinforced still and extra padding in the glove.

They have taken a few weeks to make as theyre all handmade and hand cut, but when I do receive them, they will be so worth the wait.

Here are the pictures of the glove before the rubber palm has been added.

Thanks mate, the green leather is class imo.

Have PMd you re the price bud.

six and out:
Very nice mate. I always thought about getting some custom gloves done throughout my years keeping but never got round to it.

Tailendfielder:
Graham made some for me at start of 2019. They have lasted incredibly well. The leather is better quality and thicker but without being sweatier which was my biggest concern.

I am in the minority of keepers who really likes a snug fit (Apparently) on gloves and they fit perfectly (i also prefer short sleeves which i may get shot for)if you want he can add gel pads in to the liner or his preference, is to take a pair of keeper inners and add padding. The knuckle support on the back of the glove was a bit of a revelation for me as historically Iíve really damaged knuckes almost coming through back of my hand (make sence if youve kept)

On top of that, he spent half an hour talking technique and giving a bit of advice which helped (except against Neonís medium pace leg spin).

They are not cheap, which would put alot of people on here off, however, given they are likely to never be replaced unlike all pairs of gloves ive bought which last a season to a season and a half, I should make my money back.
