Latest and greatest glove

Planning on getting a new pair of gloves this year but not sure what to buy. Was originally going to get a set of clinchers for longer endurance but several have recommended against. Can anyone give me a recommendation to the glove they prefer?

I think HO has a new glove that's like clinchers, but has the strap incorporated into the glove. I'm sticking with my proskins for now.

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.

masterlines are good. i have a pair of clinchers, i like them but they scare me. they definatley ease arm fatigue. only thing is when your about to fall you have to open your palms and make sure the handle is clear.

I've tried clinchers and personally I think they are clunky and make your hands feel weird. I guess they were good for fatigue, but heck my legs and arms give out way before my hands. I have tried several sets of HO gloves and can't seem to find a pair that doesn't give me blisters.

try glove liners. you may be buying gloves that are to big. if they are big they will bunch up and cause blisters

H.O. Rossi Pro Model or the Pro Flex (new). I used one pair of the Rossi glove for the entire season...no rips, tears or failures of any kind. Also since they are not Kevlar they will not blister your hands so no need for liners.
