Walking around the 2012 Orlando PGA Show I couldn't help but notice Asher Golf's gloves - they are umm... LOUD. In case you didn't know, I'm drawn to loud like a hooker to blow. But it took me more than half the year to get up the nerve to approach loud gloves. Why? Because I didn't believe loud gloves could be worth wearing - they had to be be lesser made.

 

So, I'm here to tell you, as a hooker trying to avoid her dealer, I finally gave in and contacted Asher to get some gloves in. Talk about loud - I got a NEON GREEN glove!!! Oh, and one that is black with white skeleton bones.

If you ask Asher why you should buy their gloves, they've got a well put together answer:

Why Buy Asher?

Freakin' Awesome Stuff

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

You Will Look Better

You Might Even Golf Better

You will Avoid the Hall of Shame

 

 

asher-gloves-8.jpg

 

 

It's hard to argue with that list, but I still wanted to try before you buy to make sure you know what to expect from Asher.

 

First - an obnoxiously loud neon green glove does not garner nearly as many comments as a black and white skeleton glove. The skeleton glove hands down has received more comments on the first tee than any other product I've ever tried (though my Neon Pink shirt for Alial Fital still wins for middle of the course comments from marshalls and randoms)

 

 

asher-gloves-7.jpg

 

 

I was sad the day I got home and realized I'd lost my neon green asher on the course :-( - but there was an upside - I now had a reason to try the glove I'd been avoiding - their $13 Cooltech Birdie glove had been at the end of my list - it's not leather, but rather a mesh with leather in the palm, thumb, pinky and ring fingers.

 

Being a sweaty individual (it's bad - one might suggest like a hooker in church) I am prone to need to switch between 2 to 3 gloves during a round to avoid the wet glove syndrome. NOT the case with the Cooltech Birdie glove - I have discovered a glove that devours the heat and allows my hand to breath. On their site Asher claims of the Cooltech "Best Feeling Glove You Will Ever Wear" - I know we all "feel" differently, but I will admit, this is one of the best feeling gloves I've ever put on my hand. Unlike full leather gloves, I never have issues through the round as my hand gets "moist" - the glove never comes out of my bag crusty for the next round - it's just plain comfy and it works.

Asher also sent me out a full leather "tour caliber" glove to try. It's still on my bag today, but it plays backup to the Cooltech - which means it hasn't seen any use in several weeks now because of my new love. I don't know that they've released their tour glove on the site yet, but when they do, I'm pretty sure this will keep up with any glove from a major OEM that you've tried.

 

My vote - go loud - grab a skeleton glove (oh, Asher calls it the Cooltech Deathgrip) - this glove gives you the same feel and function as the Cooltech Birdie - and then provides you screaming loud style that your playing partners will definitely be distracted by.

I give TWO THUMBS UP to Asher for their gloves. Loud and functional - you won't be let down.

I've always had a freaking obsession with staring at their gloves. They're so awesome! Sadly I've never gotten around to ordering one. That needs to change.

 

My favorite glove is the Death Grip.

My favorite hat is the MLB style flatbill. I hate pinstripes with a passion.

How small is the small glove - my 8 year old would like the Death Grip. Or do they plan to have a junior line as well?

Funny, I was going to write a review on these soon, as I bought 4 of the original cabretta Birdies when they were having the HUGE 4 for 1 sale a while back. Been using them for 4-6 months now, in a 2 glove rotation, and love the gloves. They hold up well and look virtually like the day I pulled them out of the package. And at $22.90 for 4 gloves including shipping, I absolutely had to try them. Shame that's over, as I'd have ordered about a dozen more. Love the gloves.

Did you find they were pretty true to size?

 

Debating between getting one to test or save on some shipping and just order a few right away.

True to size for me. They do have a sizing chart on their site here:

Thanks Tim! Completely missed the size chart on their site.

 

Also a good thing I measured, would have been a really tight fit with my first guess.

I wear a large in most gloves (R11, Titleist, Nike) so I took a gamble when they were having that sale and bought all 4 in large. They fit, well, like a glove, lol. They fit exactly the same as the other large gloves I'd tried. There are a small few gloves I've tried that I end up having to buy a Cadet Large in, but the Asher Gloves fit like the above ones do, as far as size is concerned. They're well made too. I couldn't use the size chart, as my laptop screen is a 15.4 inch screen and it doesn't fit on the iPad screen either, LOL, so I just went based off of the gloves I was wearing. We don't have a desktop (well, I do, but it's in the garage and isn't connected to the internet, I keep club build information and music on it for when I'm out in my workshop).

Thanks for the info Rookie. I usually either squeeze into a large or crank down an XL in the FJ lineup. I printed out the size chart and ended up getting 3 of the XL gloves.

Giving a serious eyeball to the deathgrip in white.

 

Tim: Have you had a chance to use them when it's wet or humid out? Any spots that weat easier then others?

 

I find that some grips are fantastic in standard summer weather but not so good when it's foggy out or the like. Equally I seem to run into issues where certain brands wear out much faster then others where the fingers meet for an interlocking grip for example.

I'm a big fan of the deathgrip - it's a "Cooltech" which means that it does extremely well in humid/foggy weather. I live on the coast and while we're not extremely humid here, the bit we do have, mixed with my ability to sweat means that the "cooltech" shines through bigtime here - I think you'll fall in love with the deathgrip, and if you don't and you get an ML - send it to me and it'll be used until it wears out ;-)

 

I didn't find any spots wore more than others - the cooltech gloves only have leather in the areas where you should be truly making any major contact with the club, but when interlocking fingers, there's no leather there - just the cooltech stuff - that said, they haven't worn out abnormally for me yet and I've played probably 10+ rounds so far with the cooltech, plus range time and I foresee them easily going another 20 rounds or more.

 

Their full leather gloves seem to do what all other leather gloves do when it gets damp.
