Anybody use these gloves?

Been using Straightline gloves the last two seasons. Thinking about switching to the Masterline K-Palm when I read about these. The strap is supposed to help reduce fatigue. I know that my forearms are on fire after six passes. Anybody use these? Do they actually help reduce fatigue?

Thanks

Used another brand w/ the same concept in the palm also. Didn't feel like I could get used to the feeling of the glove and seemed un-natural to me. Just a personal opinion.

I had some masterline amara palm and the seams went out within two months. Overton's is making gloves again and they're as bullet proof as ever.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

My brother uses the original clincher version. I have tried them, they do help with tired arms and grip. My wife liked them enough that she got a pair of the pro locks which are very similar to the clinchers. The only knock on them is that some people say they have a hard time releasing the handle from them, although I didn't have a problem with it.

Tried the Clincher brand and it felt weird. Its personal preference. I know several guys who ski with this style glove and love them. They have said that it is hard to release the handle sometimes. I would try someones gloves that you ski with before buying or spending 70 bucks.

Used 'em during barefoot endurance races, when the 'ole forearms started wear'n out.
They'd give us a good extra 3-5 miles of distance ....

Some people love these types of gloves, takes some getting used to I think. One recommendation some people have is to buy these and remove the wooden dowel from the gloves to help reduce getting 'stuck' to the handle.

Masterline gloves are great products, I have worn k-palms for about 6 years now.

^X2 My buddie swears by the Clinchers W/ the dowel removed for slalom. I personally love the Masterline K-palms.

I use Clinchers and like them. They do take some getting used to. I do not have a problem releasing the handle.
Next, I would like to try the Radar Locks, they seem less cumbersome.
