More gloves! (hirzl) For sweaty hands!


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So - my hands are super sweaty. Kinda legendary amongst people that know me :D

I'm looking for the best glove for it. Apparently the wet footjoy wetgrip are pretty good but I hate the way the ridge feels on my hand.

 

So I got the ProFLX, titleist Player and those:

Will be posting a long review here, so it's a placeholder for now.

 

If anyone has any more suggestions what I should try, let me know!

Spray on anti-perspirant works wonders on sweaty hand syndrome. Simple thin white cotton painters gloves are also a surprisingly good (and cheap) option for really wet conditions.

Hmmm, on hands or inside the glove? I have used talcum powder before, but it just ruined the glove :D

Just spray it all over your hands when you get to the course and again at the turn (or often as is necessary).

I love my Hirzl gloves. Soft, breathable kangaroo leather that wears like iron.

I haven't bought gloves in years, because the Best Grips Micro Perfs stay tacky even in the rain, however, I did have a Hirzl glove that was awesome. It also lasted a long time also.

My favorite was the Trust Hybrid. Had kangaroo leather in all the right places and was cheaper than the Trust Feel. I can no longer get them though because of a ban on Kangaroo imports to California

One of the guys I play with routinely uses his rain gloves during extremely humid days. Personally, I change my glove frequently and wipe my hands dry. Once your glove gets damp your other hand and the grips will get damp.

Stay away from underarmour gloves they rip as soon as they get wet. 

Take your glove off as soon you are done your shot.

 

On extremely hot and sweaty days I will actually put on my rains gloves and soak them with my water bottle. I am already drenched in sweat so the extra wetness doesn't bother me. It is a bonus if you sweat more because more water equals more grip with rain gloves.

The best glove for sweaty hands is the FJ rain glove. Man I don't know why the secret is not out. It stays dry and gives you great grip plus it lasts a very long time.

 

If your hands are as sweaty as you have stated might I suggest a small BB rosin bag would help. When I lived in Texas I always kept one in my golf bag. Friends would chuckle as I tapped it on my grips prior to a round but you know what.......worked like a charm.

I remember reading about this a month ago and have been using my FJ rain glove on all hot and humid days ( which we've had a lot of). Perfect for this kind of weather.

Plus a million for Hirzl gloves.  They are the BEST.  I just wish they made one that was completely kangaroo leather.  The issue I have (I've tried them all!) is the regular leather wears out long long long before the kangaroo leather looks even used.  My last Hirzl glove I had over a year.  The stitching tore thru the cabretta leather and so I took out a needle and thread so sewed that sucker up.  Played more rounds with it.  It tore again and at this time it was stretched out from all the use ( the regular leather not the kangaroo part).  The Velcro also goes bad way way way too soon for these gloves.  I wish they made an all kangaroo leather glove and used a snap for closure or something because Velcro wears out too fast and the premium cabretta leather also sucks.  I don't like any other glove after trying hirzl.  Best grip in dry, wet, cold, hot, humid, etc. Just the best.  I'd pay 50 dollars for one stinking glove made completely out of kangaroo for this reason.  I've found a company called Kakadu that makes Kangaroo gloves also.  Just like Hirzl they use premium leather for the parts not in contact with a club.  Again I wish someone even if the darn glove wasn't for golf, made a glove completely out of kangaroo leather.  I say we need to create one!  I swear the glove would feel great, grip great, last about 100 rounds of golf without an issue and still look brand new....thus the 50 dollar price tag LOL but if you could guarantee people it would last 100 rounds well if you buy a footjoy or titliest premium glove you'd easily blow through 50 dollars worth of gloves in 100 rounds.

Kakadu - even better than Hirzl. My 3 gloves are on their way!
