Title: How many gloves do you own ? How many is too many ?
Post by: Biggie Smalls on August 23, 2017, 08:00:05 AM
I go through about 5-6 pairs of gloves per year ( my mates joke that i must sweat acid or something ). I recently got sick of replacing them on a 'need to' basis .I found a few different types i like and stocked up .
Sm pinto  vigour -12 pairs
Unbranded ols sausage - 4 pairs
Ss dhoni 7 all white - 5 pairs
Ss test all white - 5 pairs
Ss limited edition blue - 5 pairs
..... so , that gives me a grand total of 31 pairs of gloves (not counting crappy old pairs i still have floating around). I will use the 4x unbranded gloves and 4x sm vigours as my initial stockpile of training gloves , i will use 1x the sm and the three types of ss as my initial match stockpile....and will then add match gloves to the training stockpile once they are quite used .

So , at the rate i go through gloves , i have5 or 6 years worth.... but , what do you think ?  Still too many ? How many do you have ?  ( surely im not the only one on the forum with a shed load of gloves ?

I have 3 pairs and probably a couple of well past their best pairs in the garage. A pair tends to last me around 2 season (use the same pair for nets and games, change them occasionally if i bat long enough and it's warm).

I always bats in Fingerless inners which maybe gives then a good bit of extra life.

Right now I have a Newbery SPS II pair as my mails gloves with new pairs from Cicada and Woodstock in my kitbag for whenever a change is required.

I catagorise my gloves into two different sections!

Section 1: Gloves which match my bats/pads kit (these are gloves which will go with matching bag/pads/match bats)
Section 2: Net gloves - these are gloves which I do not have matching pads and bats for so can't be that sad FKW which I can be with option 1  ;)

I will need to get Section 2 sorted as I have a dozen or so various sets of random gloves scattered in different places. So will concentrate on listing from option 1.

So Option 1 gloves:
3 pairs of H4L Pro gloves - these are the old plain gloves which were on half price offer from last year - very nice gloves too!
1 pair H4L Custom Pro Gloves to match pads (fantastic quality)
1 pair 5050 gloves to match pads

1 pair Kookaburra Kahuna pro gloves
1 pair Kookaburra Ghost pro gloves (match Blade Pro pads)

2 pairs GN Prestige gloves (match Prestige pads)
1 pair GN Omega 1500 gloves

All the above are really comfortable to wear - if I had to choose 1 set of softs I would choose the H4L Custom softs as they just feel so comfortable on. I realise this is a personal preference and everyone if different. In reality all the softs I have are really comfortable and would happily wear any of them.

I did have others such as the B&S GP274 softs which looked fantastic and felt nice. But I didn't have a matching bat so I thought that having 5 complete sets of gear was too excessive!  ;)

I've got 3 pairs of Ayrtek gloves (Decade Edition sausage & shark tooth & a pair of the black & white shark tooth), a pair of H4L 5050 & 2 Pairs of Affinity gloves. They all have matching pads.

Once a pair is too sweaty I normally give them away. Too sweaty for me is probably 1/2 decent usage for most people.

2 pairs, one which I use consistently and another pair for when the first pair tire out or if I've batted long enough to warrant changing gloves!!!

Post by: DorsetDan on August 23, 2017, 09:54:48 AM
Two identical pairs I actually use plus around 9 more that have fallen out of favour for *important* reasons like not matching pads or not feeling quite right on a new bat ;) :)

31 pairs is definitely too many.

I have 3 currently I think - got one full set of Bradbury softs and one of Puma, plus one cheap unbranded pair for nets. Arguably one pair too many ;)

Pair for kitchen coaching videos (blank bats)
Two pairs in my kit bag (adidas elite)
Old favourite pair of gm gloves kept to compare other gloves with if I want to change kit in the future.

I've got one pair of Slazenger top end gloves, bought new off eBay at the start of the season

I find the fit of Slazenger to be perfect for me, and the pittards is always top quality
They've had a bit of use so far this season, so will be replaced over the winter.

Last couple of seasons I've used ss ton, but they don't last long before the palms are knackered

Before that, my affinity ayrtek softs lasted two hard seasons,(still managed to sell em on fleabay)
They were as good as anything I've used

I keep going back to Slaz tho

I feel like I'm letting the side down now

1 match pair 1 net pair that's it

tend to buy a new pair every year and use last years match pair as next years net pair unless a sale on as hard to find the kind of gloves I like

Best pair of gloves I had were salix top of the range, at 90 quid now that's no longer happening
Two pairs for me, one donated from the forum(soul man-legend) one pair of adidas county 6 pound on eBay
Tried on my mates SF gloves the other day remarkably lighter than anything else I tried on

one pair for saturdays (Batas)
one pair for midweek (SS white outs)

an old pair that don't feel right and make my wrists ache (?!) that my daughter uses for intermediate dress up.

Three pairs too
2 x White RS (different styles)
1 x plain white phantoms

I like plain kit.

Second that

If I could find completely blank (no branding at all however subtle), small fitting pads and split finger gloves I'd stop purchasing mountains of softs that upset my FKW OCD sooner or later  :)

I have ordinary kit ocd , but ive recovered from fkw kit ocd..... i think how i got out of it was twofold : 1) i realised i wasnt necessarily using (imo) the best/favourite gloves because they didnt match other gear . 2) i just go for a particular look now ie/if i wear morrant pads and bas players style gloves then i am as matching as half a dozen present/past Indian players anyway , if i add a subcontinental bat ... presto,  look is obtained . One other sorta-reason is that i wont use anything but morrant pads now , so have adjusted to the idea that my kit will never fully match anymore anyway .
If i want to use a western branded bat , for whatever reason , i feel i need to wear one of the plainer /whiteout style gloves , so my fkw-ness hasn't totally disappeared,  i suppose - its just morphed into something that only makes sense to me !

Actually,  one element of fkw-ness that still exists for me is that ( other than bat , pads , gloves) all visible branding has to match - i have adidas shoes , adidas logo on my ayrtek helmet , adidas pants , and i even bought a plain adidas vest ( instead of our club vest with different branding) and put a club badge on it . Guess im still a while away from full fkw recovery !

I think this is the main reason for ols unbranded kit being popular. .... different kit to your bat , but it doesnt mess with fkw kit ocd !

They only do small sizes! Else I'd have loads ha.

In a semi-related vein, I have a hankering for a pair of unbranded but completely coloured gloves. Not sure I'd actually use them much though.

They didn't have much choice when I got in touch and all were too big. Small Indian men's wouldn't be awful. I am resigned to my gnome stature :)

I have super short , thin handles on most of my bats . I find many gloves , particularly thin sausage style ones , to fit snug and not feel bulky on the handle . I find splits , especially non shark tooth /square ones , to feel bulkier .

Two sets of gloves, one old and will be used for both nets and matches, one new just in case I mislay the old pair.  The new ones will take over when the old ones finally die.

Four pairs for me!

1 X GN Legend (Which I don't even take anywhere with me as I don't like them...)

3 x GN Prestige (of which, 1x nets, 1x set 1 and 1x set 2) :)

I like my gear to fill the void left by my lack of talent  ;)

I currently carry 3 pairs of gloves in my kit bag:
-Kookaburra Blaze Pro- my main match pair, I prefer split finger gloves and especially the V splits, the pittard palms are also very comfortable

-Kookaburra Onyx Pro 2016- I wanted to try the U splits and I really like and they are fantastic as a second match glove. Anyone who liked the Onyx gloves should try the 2017 Surge gloves as they are virtually the same style and shape as the Onyx

-Kookaburra Blaze 900- these are purely used for nets, throw downs and occasionally on for a Sunday game. Nice gloves but I'm the biggest fan of sheep skin palms

3 pairs of gloves for each brand of kit I own. Mainly used GM and GN this season

GM OLE main match gloves and amazing gloves pricy but do last
GM 808 as net gloves 1 pair totally gone now and the other will last winter nets

GN Legends like the OLE superb bit pricey but do last
Predator 1000 the. Pay comfy if all my gloves but palm wears quick as so soft
Prestige gloves just acquired but decent gloves

Then my mix and math kit 2x B&S split finger nice and subtle and decent quality espically for what I paid sub £25 each pair
Newbery Triumph just acquired but decent pittards leather so should be decent
Aldred gloves again just acquired but like the Legends and OLE a pricey glove but look quality

I currently have 3 pairs of Hunts county Aura gloves

One pair was used for games last season. These are now my indoor/net gloves.
I have a pair I used in a couple of games while the others were drying out. These are now my match gloves.
I just received a brand new pair so I can have 2 in my bag for match day.

On top of those I think I also have:
2 GN prestige
GN legends
H4L NV classic
H4L Custom
2 Hunts County Revolution

Only 10 pairs, I feel I've let the side down... :-[

Interesting that people need to have all matching kit. Is it that important?

I'm slightly like that although currently none of my kit matches. Have Newbery gt pads that are still like new. Have a pair of Salix pod blacks and h4l nv classics to go with my salix pod and h4l nv bats. However, both bats now not my match bat as my gn f18 is so good. So do I get some gn gloves to match or get some h4l pads in the sale and at least have matching pads and gloves?

You need to get GN gloves & pads, H4L pads and Salix pads. That way you'll have 3 FKW sets  ;)

I reckon more people would opt for matching pads and gloves with different bat....me , however,  I'd feel better with gloves and bat that matched with different pads ( something about looking at your hands and seeing the bat and gloves matching seems better to me) .
Or you can pkay it safe and get unbranded softs or very subtle /almost unbranded softs ....hfl stuff is a good example of this ).

You have to match your kit OCD to your standard.

I always want gloves and pads to match. But I bat at no10 in our 3XI - so I would look a complete titwank if I used a matching bat too!


Most tailenders at my level donít even know what end to hold!!

Was thinking about this as season starts soon...

1 pair white BDM Sachin style sausage fingers (currently being borrowed by brother)
1 pair purple and white BDM Sachin style sausage fingers - my current match gloves
1 pair BOSS gloves... impulse buy but don't like colours... just waiting to donate somewhere
1 pair AM Monarch gloves - lovely soft leather but they are not sausage gloves but love the quality and soft feel of leather

Ideal gloves http://www.cricketexpress.co.nz/assets/Products/Cricket-Express/Gloves/CA/_resampled/CroppedImage590590-CroppedImage592590-SetSize592592-CA%20Gold%20Gloves.jpg (http://www.cricketexpress.co.nz/assets/Products/Cricket-Express/Gloves/CA/_resampled/CroppedImage590590-CroppedImage592590-SetSize592592-CA%20Gold%20Gloves.jpg)

but with finger protection like the BDMS I have on every finger and also leather strip on the tips.. one can just hope and dream... I really love the soft leather fee of the Pakistani gloves...

Got 3 pairs in my bag, had 2-3 older pairs but gave them away or threw them in the team kit bag.

1 Woodstock Platinum White
1 Newbery SPS
1 Cicada Not sure of the model got them on eBay but great value for 30 quid.

Tend to wear the PSP's for nearly everything, and occasionally give the others a run out to wear them in/out of guilt for owning more gear than I need.

"My name is Matt and I have a glove problem. I only have one pair."

There. It felt good to say it.

I tend to look after my gloves and so they last a few seasons. Either that, or I'm just not batting long enough...

They're a fine pair of Puma Platinum 5000s, soon to start their 3rd or 4th season. I like everything about them. Black and red generally being my colour scheme too  :D

Have a matched pair of pads, and I must say, Puma softs are the shiznit.

I think I might stick some on eBay soon.  I tend to get new gloves every season, but I'm going to try and use older gloves for nets! Becoming less fussy about matching kit now, though it does look smart, but now I prefer a good quality glove that isn't too flashy.

I know at the moment I've got:

Spartan MC LE I've used in about 2 nets, love them but may sell.
Spartan MC 1000 I got on ebay, will flog!
GN Lengends from around 2011 with the 2 black fingers on, used a little but don't anymore, but can't part with them, so nice!
Ton Players sausage used in a few nets and games, keeping them for sunday games.
OLS Plain gloves used loads last season, decent gloves actually but probs getting rid after nets.
Uzi Sports Pro gloves from 2016 I think, great gloves!

And for this season I've got a pair of last year's GM 909s for my match set!

Should keep me going but may as well have a de-clutter!

1 x 1st gen B3 splits that I don't use after a ball hit the tip of my thumb and nearly broke it. Superstitious. were on special EOS

1 x SS Dhoni 7 Test Sausage that are a little too short in the fingers. OLS purchase. pity, it's a really nice glove with a one piece thumb. purchased after above.

Do use

1 x 1st gen B3 Sausage that i use for training or second match pair if i'm lucky. were on special same EOS as above.

Kookaburra Blaze Pro 2017

Net Pairs:
Kookaburra Blaze 2017
Kookaburra Onyx Pro 2016

I prefer split finger gloves not a fan of sausage finger gloves but also like to mix up the types of splits. Used to prefer the 'U-split' and 'V-split' but know favour the flat split hence my switch over the the Kahuna this season

How do you go through gloves so fast? I've used the same pair all last season, nets and all, and am only now considering some new ones but merely to replace the old ones.

Am I missing something?

I kill some gloves due to profuse sweat, but i rip gloves in all sorts of strange places . I use smallish gloves for my hand size but used to kill as many pairs wearing larger gloves so that cant be it .I rip holes in the fingers ,the bit where tbe thumb meets the hand , the palm etc. I rip the wristband off the connecting leather ....you name a way to kill gloves and i manage to do it .

I really do try tolook after all my kit and have a kit ocd reputation at my club , so its not like I'm rough with my gloves and mistreat them .

I have given up trying to fix the problem so just bought a shedload of gloves .

I find the GN Prestige gloves very comfortable. They are slightly smaller than some other Mens size gloves, but not unduly small. My hands are perhaps slightly larger than average, but I still find them fine.
The protection is good enough for Alastair Cook.

They offer excellent value for money, which is not something we can always say about products from the big sponsoring companies.

Hot day, don't wear inners, open the batting, still in at drinks. Fresh gloves is bliss. That's 2 pairs needed.
Many other pairs are needed because you are always looking for the pair that make it feel as though you're not wearing any gloves at all.

I always try and keep 3, one net set which is the season befores match pair and is also used in any friendlies/ t20. One match set which starts off brand new and a spare set just incase the stitching goes on a pair or i do actually bat for a couple of hours. Always use the Salix Pod range and get the discount on pro direct for buying multiples.

I can see how people can get hooked on buying bats... but gloves? Gloves are boring and functional. They're there to stop you getting broken fingers. Just buy the cheapest ones you can find that do the job. I have been playing league cricket for 20 years and in that time I have owned 2 pairs of gloves.

As for just buying the cheapest ones that's just daft. You have to pay a premium to get "Test level" protection, just in case the opposition have a 90+MPH bowler playing in their 4th XI...  ;)

I think gloves are very important. I like ones that are a tight fit and not too bulky. I find they alter how you grip the bat and some are far more comfortable than others. Iíve tried many brands but always go for Puma personally.
The quality of the protection is not a major factor for me as i rarely get hit on the hands.

You can get perfectly decent gloves for £20-30, and they should last you 5-10 years easily.

I agree. My puma platinum 5000ís were £20 posted. To get a good deal just wait and buy a pair from last years range.
My gloves last around 3 years before they get a bit ragged. I donít wear inners but change gloves if Iím still in T the drinks breaks. I wash them a few times each season too.
Older gloves leave grubby marks on my white bat grips.

One very bad broken finger, surgery, 5 weeks with a wire poking out of my hand and then another lot of surgery was enough to convert me to the expensive glove club, add to that the fact that I sweat alot means I usually have 3-4 pairs of gloves in my bag, I work on the basis of one new pair every year and then turf or donate the oldest pair.

All you have to remember is that it only takes 1 whack on the hand/fingers and that's your season or longer over...... and that doesn't matter whether you bat 1 or 11.... granted it is more likely to happen if you face quicker bowling but it can still happen if you play lower levels on worse pitches.

That is easily enough reason to buy gloves that give you very good protection.... that doesn't mean you can't search for a bargain though.

The other reasons are that with better grip, feel, sizing, comfort - it is certainly better/nicer/helps your batting.

Personally, i open the batting so face the quicks, so i wear mid/top of the range gloves for this reason, i have 3 pairs on rotation to help them last longer.

Even the cheapest gloves nowadays are better and more protective than top of the range stuff from a decade ago. The gloves I wear, which are basic GM gloves from 2010 that are getting slightly ragged but are still perfectly functional, are better than anything test batsmen wore in the 90s.


If you play cricket long enough you'll eventually get a few injuries. I've had broken ribs, permanent nerve damage in my thigh, broken finger, broken nose, I got a bruised ankle whilst playing in Barbados and couldn't walk for a week. Its just part of the game. I got hit on the head once by a bouncer and hooked the next 4 balls for 6.

There are holes in each thumb where the leathers been worn away, but no reason to throw them away. After about 5,000 runs, they're just getting nicely worn in.

I had to throw my old gloves away because the holes had all joined together. I've never used inners, I like to feel the bat as closely as possible.

Sorry , but that's just a very untrue statement re cheapest gloves today are better than the best gloves from a decade ago ! Case in point , cheapest gloves today often /mostly don't have carbon/plastic reinforced protection on any finger , let alone all fingers , and the leather quality in dodgy cow leather. You're statement is even more incorrect when i can remember buying g.n (ultimate 750?) gloves ....their first triple split finger ,top of the range ,gloves , when i was in year 10....so that was 1994. They were awesome quality , sheeps leather , plastic reinforced beauties. They were miles better than a lot of mid range gloves  today for both comfort and protection.
Perhaps the fact you only buy gloves once  a decade leaves you a bit too out of the loop to make such comparisons ?

There are holes in each thumb where the leathers been worn away, but no reason to throw them away. After about 5,000 runs, they're just getting nicely worn in.

I had to throw my old gloves away because the holes had all joined together. I've never used inners, I like to feel the bat as closely as possible.

@SLA are you Jack Russell?

Uzi had them a while back, the BAS players gloves named as Sachin gloves I think. You could also look at the current CA plus 15000 gloves. Great price and used by test players.

Agree those bas look good .. cheapest I can see is 49 quid directly ..from bas UK website . I don't need any yet but always good to be aware

Anyone else sell them cheaper

Ss ( dhoni 7) , sm (vigour) , spartan (dhoni/bairstow) , kippax (stoneman), mrf (kholi) , bdm (sachin) , are all essentially the same as bas players gloves . I bought a stack of the sm's and ss (see start of this thread) from online stockist and with shipping included , assuming you're buying a few pairs and shipping costs is a wee bit more spread out , they cost me around $35-40au each (so like 15-18 quid or so ?). If you are put off from buying from ols then maybe uzi or kippax or even eas are options .

So in regard to this thread what are the best gloves per pound with protection up to 78mph.. can't see many bowlers in Sunday cricket going above 78 would be rare

There aren't many bowlers who bowl 78mph in non-professional cricket no matter what day of the week it is. If you're not a professional cricketer and you're not playing against professional cricketers, you're wasting your money buying top of the range kit, frankly. You don't need it against 60-70mph stuff.

There are a lot of bowlers who think they bowl 80... get them in front of a speedo and see their faces drop when they top out at 72. Saw this numerous times at Ponty's fast bowling clinic.

@SLA That is probably true, only ever faced one genuine 85 mph plus fast bowler, and it felt ludicrously fast.  Anything straight I could hit, anything wide and I wasn't getting anywhere near it.  I guess you would get used to the pace eventually, but after taking one between my hip bone and lowest rib that looked like an emerging black and blue planet the size of a volleyball afterwards I suspect it would take a few painful bumps to get to that point.  Frightening to think that that is the standard pace the pros face.  That said, I think outright pace is less scary than the mystery spin they face at about 60 mph.  No idea how they hit a well directed ball turning a foot and a half at that pace.

I toured Barbados when I was younger as an opening bat and faced guys only a few years away from having played test cricket. Quicker than anything I've faced in the UK either before or since. I survived for 20 overs without receiving a ball in my half and scored 20 entirely in edges to fine leg. They then brought a lollipop spinner on, I thought thank god for that and first ball I got triggered with the dodgiest lbw I've ever had. I also took a Yorker straight onto the ankle that swelled up once I took my boot off and I and couldn't walk for a week.

Slightly disagree with that you get hit on the gloves with a brand new ball it can hurt. Earlier this season was just wearing some 30 quid gloves, new ball hit me on the little finger and broke it.

I got a bowling machine ball to the thumb at 70mph yesterday, it's a bit sore but I'm fairly certain it's just bruised.

Thank goodness I had test grade gloves on  ;)

It seems the bas player gloves are best value for money and very good protection against new ball. Shame Uzi no longer stocks the tendulkar

Have 4 pairs currently. 2 in my match kit and 2 in my practice kit. Considering I hardly play 15 games a year, that is more than enough.

Since my season has ended, will be getting myself a new pair of pads and gloves and throwing out one of the old ones.
