The fish I caught that day weren't very big so I turned them loose.

I have a pair of masterline that I picked up in Orlando at Performance. The k-palm and pre-curved finger work well for me. The same model is sold by several companies so unless it has to say KD or HO on it find a model that you like and shop price and cross-reference the make. I bought a pair of clinchers, I am not smart enough to figure them out. My brother is a big fan of those grippie deals that you use with the special handle.

Yeah, small for Texas. In GA, they'd give out trophies for 'em.

Masterline kevlar gloves work great for me. As someone else mentioned, spending a few extra $$$'s is worth it in my book. Can't recall the last time I had blisters from skiing.

I also have a pair of Straightline greptile gloves that fit great but don't work well without the handle to match.

I ski the kevlar HO gloves (forgot the name) have a red pair and a blue pair and don't really know the difference in the two
I used to ski clinchers but as mentioned here I kept having trouble with them getting hung up on the release or missing the grab to come back across so I slowly broke away from them. The clinchers are definitely a crutch and it takes some getting used to a normal glove again.

Regarding the Clinchers, didn't even think about the release when trying them on...

I'll third the Masterline Kevlar pre curved.Very good grip and seems very resistant so far.Had success too with the O'Brien Amara series but not close to the Masterline and as someone said ,you can find them under different labels.(KD for sure)
Bought a pair of Connelly 2 years ago and ripped them in the same week!Never again.
