Slightly bigger picture for you guys.

The gloves look like the same shape as the Prestige gloves, with retro looks.

Might get an Elite just for a bit of nostalgia. I was given an Elite 500 by Chris Penn (Kent) when I was a very young chap, and I used it for couple of seasons with decent success. Hopefully next will be the Ultimate then the Optimum.

At a guess grade 2 I would expect. Havent seen the range in the flesh yet due to my rep living in Wales. Im guessing weights will vary. Can probably request a certain weight if Pre ordered

@Six Sixes Cricket can you let me know when youve got a bit more info??

Really like the look of those 750 gloves, will be interested to see the more expensive model too.

If theyre going full retro with the gloves they really need to be 100% leather. Chances of that? About 0.5%?

Eh, when I was a kid my first batting gloves were literally white cotton gloves with rubber anti-cat spike on the fingers and knuckles. 😂😂 They looked just like these! Given this was in the early 2000s, maybe an elderly relative had given me some kit.
