Cheap old worn out ¾ finger gloves. That’s one of the things I will need to address this spring. I like the ¾ finger gloves though

Great thread Brian...
I told my wife I wanted some gloves for my B-day but I am not sure what kind to get. I will be watching this thread closely.

I really like The Claw from Connelly. Mine have kevlar palms which start out somewhat abbrasive, but once you break them in get nice and soft. They have precurved fingers, and fit very well. I've tried three different makes and models, and these are by far my favorites. Highly reccomended!

I use a cheap pair of Ski Limited gloves. I tend to lose them long before they are wore out. Thinking of trying a pair I seen a Wal-Mart for $10.

I have been wearing a set of O'Brien X-grip full finger for that last 2-3 years. But, they are getting really worn and I'm wearing a pair of undergloves beneath them. I saw in Water Ski Mag they had a good write up on the HO Icon. http://www.hosports.com/flashindex1.htm

I’m torn between getting another pair of “disposable” gloves again or looking for a good pair..

You need a good pair to go with your "good" ski.

Using a pair of basic Overton's, however I tried a pair of Clinchers with the dollrod at the finger tips and they seemed cool. Contemplating claiming the old gloves don't fit (...must aquit) and getting new ones.
