Currently own 5 pairs of gloves:
Match Pairs:
Kookaburra Kahuna Pro 2018 x2
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

Hope you're feeling better!

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?

My knees are a work in progress but ill find out his offseason if ill ever be able to play a front foot shot ever again....or if i need to totally overhaul my technique.

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 guess it's a good excuse to have a lovely glove stock!

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.

That's how it starts.

You'll be knee-deep in bats before you know it.
