Reading the post I'm surprised that three brands didn't make it into the 'Best Gloves 2017'.

Bionic
Hirzl
Kakadu

The last two brands are made out of Kangaroo leather which is purportedly longer wearing. Also I can personally attest to not only longer wearing but also better grip in wet weather.

Unfortunately I can't find the Hirzl (Swiss company) gloves in my size. I use to get them at Dicks.

The Kakadu gloves are made in Australia they run about 25. $Aus and the manufacturer charged me 8.95 to have them shipped to the US. I'll be buying more of these.

I am curious as to what the two Under Armour top of the line gloves would have tested at? Absolutely love those

I like the UA gloves but found it a little small as a size comparison. I wear XL in FJs so would have to get the XXL which of course no box store stocks.

I just picked up a 3-pack of Tmag burner gloves on ebay for 9.95 shipped.  Nowhere near the best, but for 3.33 a piece it's a no brainer.  Believe it or not the best glove I ever owned was a Top Flite el cheapo I picked up in a pro shop when mine ripped.  That glove lasted the entire season and gripped like it was smothered in pine tar.  I actually went back to buy them out, but they were gone.  I've looked online to no avail.  Definitely taught me a lesson in terms of branding vs quality.

Excited about the Ping Tour glove.  The last time MGS did a premium glove test the FootJoy Pure Touch Limited ran away with it, and this time the Ping Tour trounced it.  I've used the FootJoy glove and it's great, soft and durable, so the fact that Ping Tour beat it in every category, and at a slightly lower price, is great.  Only question now is what stores have it, no luck so far.

I've been playing with a Footjoy glove for a while now, it's holding up quite well. I will probably purchase more, as other gloves I've tried haven't held up. I gave Bionic a try once, I don't remember the model but it was not for me. It had extra padding around the finger creases for added comfort, but it just felt really weird holding a club.

I'm dying to try the Ping glove, have used both the FJ premium and TMAG premium and they both are great and have lasted a very long time in comparison to the cheap glove that drys up/ tears/ wears out and stretches out too much.

I think golf gloves are about as personal as golf equipment gets. I love the MG DynaGrip and the DynaGrip Elite models. Through the years I've tried most glove brands and types. With the MG gloves I'm lucky to get the best of both worlds. Fit and price. A good friend can't wear them he says. Don't fit good for him. He will only use a Titleist premium glove.

Whatever works I say.

I love kangaroo leather! Unfortunately, I live in California and we allowed a law to expire which permitted the sale of kangaroo leather products back in January. No more kangaroo leather anything for me :(

 

On the bright side, I found the review super helpful! Picked up a 5 pack of the Srixon gloves off Amazon for $12.99 a glove with free prime shipping!

I have been using the Footjoy Puretouch for a couple of months now. It is like a more durable (slightly thicker) Titleist Players glove. Another nice thing about them is that they are pre-stretched. They are a little on the spendy side but I am really liking them so far.

After reading this review I just bought several of these Ping gloves online from PGA Superstore for $8.99 per ($24 reg) plus $4.95 shipping….quite a deal. Must have quickly sold out because they are no longer listed. I received them today and tried them on. While the leather feels and looks top grade, they are the first glove I’ve tried that doesn’t fit quite right. Been playing over 40 years and pretty much have tried and use every glove out there (except Ping, because of price). I take a ML and while the finger length is fine, this Ping glove doesn’t totally wrap around the back of my hand like it should, only covers about half the velcro. So the fingers would be too long in a L but the ML is a little too small. Still wearable but seems to be a weird fit. Before buying, I highly suggest trying on first, especially if you plan on paying normal price.  I also bought four MG Dynagrip Elites a couple weeks ago for $6.99 per and they fit and feel great.

Gloves sure are funny - what works for one hand doesn't for another. Picked up a PING glove at the PGA show and like it a lot. I've tried the MG gloves and quite frankly can't stand them (crappy feel, stretch out after one use -- for me), although I have a buddy who buys them by the bushel.  

 

I do tend to be a bit of a glove ho, but generally use Wilsons, FootJoys or Bridgestones (really like the Bridgestones). Will have to find some Srixon's online and give them a whirl. 

 

Also have a couple of Asher's coming in the mail - have liked them in the past so we'll see if the new incarnation is as good.

I'm a fan of the Asher gloves, at least the old ones.  I'm set for the first couple months of the season but plan on putting some blue Asher's on the Father's Day list.

 

I'm also curious to try out Mettle gloves.  No idea on the quality but they have some colors and patterns I like.

I stopped using gloves this past year, after of course I purchased a bulk set of 10 sta-soft gloves from eBay. Of course after playing down here in Fl during the 80+ heat I might have to change that thought.
