Batting glove weight database
« on: December 11, 2018, 08:12:01 PM »

Since there has been some discussion on glove weights and it is very hard to get any manufacturer information on this it makes sense to add a thread similar to the pads weight thread here: http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=41306.0

Some thread rules:
1) When adding a listing, please copy the full list posted before your reply and add to the full list, with the new listing in bold so people can see what has been added
2) Size no doubt affects weight so all gloves are assumed to be the standard mens size. Please make sure you mention the size if this is not the case e.g. youth, small mens, oversize mens etc.
3) Feel free to add additional weights to gloves already listed to give everyone a better idea of an average weight
4) It might also be helpful to note if split sausage or hybrid to help those searching for a specific type of glove
5) Weight in grams per pair please  :)

Here are a few to get us going  :D

BAS Player Edition (sausage finger) - 416g
Keeley Worx 11 (split finger) (Youth Size) - 359g
Robinsons (split finger) (Youth Size) - 351g
TON Pro (sausage finger) (Youth Size) - 367g


edit for extra saddo points...

And generally what's the weight considered as light for county or test sausage finger gloves

Would likely be crica 360g in total both hands ?

@Novak if you fit Indian mens size gloves (the TON Youth is the same as the BAS regular size) then it looks like the TON Pro Sausage gloves may be what you are looking for. Really surprised on those and they are the TON branded version of the SS Test gloves so not short of protection or quality

Thank you for doing this thread just noticed it and proves you don't need 500g gloves for adequate protection

Indeed, I stand corrected  :)

I bought the TON Pro from PDC but they seem to be out of stock: https://www.prodirectcricket.com/products/TON-Pro-RH-Batting-Gloves-Batting-Gloves-White-Silver-150002.aspx

Palms are Pittards and far higher quality than most other Pittards out there. As I mentioned, I found the fit of the Youth the same as a standard BAS mens.

Superb saves me having to weigh them myself :) always aimed to keep them light and flexible which was high on the want list when looking at the design many moons ago now.

As they say if it aint broke dont fix it as the protection has always stood up to demand and they provide flexibility straight out of the packet too.

PS Cap en route as well mate @Smmatle1  :D

Not to cause a downer on the thread, but does 100g across a pair of gloves really make that much difference to anyone?

For reference I weighed mine and they come in at 370g, but it's such small amounts of weight we're talking it all seems a bit pointless (especially comparing Youth sized to Adult size?!)

Inners added in would break the bank, sweat is heavy too! As long as the protection level is upto the job then I think an extra few grams here or there is negligible

I feel pad weight would be more noticeable than glove.

For me the most important part of gloves is protection and flex (I hate stiff gloves!)

For me, pad weight has always been of negligible concern - it is the feel of the pad that determines whether it is right for me and generally I can wear any pair of pads without significant complaint - whereas the weight is an issue when it comes to gloves.   It seems to be bother me more than the weight of the bat that i am using
