Glove recommendations.

I keep getting shot in the hands, it hurts. I have never worn gloves before but I am now sick of getting shot. I was thinking of just going to Walmart and getting some of those mechanix brand gloves but wanted to see if you guys had any other thoughts on the matter

I am currently using and really like Carpenter style gloves. Similar to these ones.

I don't like losing too much finger sensitivity so I used half-finger weightlifting gloves. Takes the sting out of hand shots, but allows for good control.

I really like these 10 dollar motocross ones I got on sale. Good tactical feedback and most importantly cheap

I use cheap Home Despot or bLowes mechanics gloves. Simple and cheap... And I can cut off the fingers if I need to.

Those are what I use. I don't too much care about getting shot in the hands, but I do think they're essential for woodsball.

Take a look at the JT "tournament" gloves. Little bit of padding, but still nice and flexible. You dont lose much dexterity at all with them. For $10/pair, theyre great. First time i used them, i played all day in a 2v2 tournament using my BL Onslaught. I was afraid they would be too bulky for a modern electro marker, but no, they work awesome.

I use to use these when I played Xball. It helped support my wrists when diving into the snake every point and kept my fingers clear. https://www.walmart.com/ip/108-Everl...&wl13=&veh=sem

I have some Mechanix gloves as backups if I need em. The regular cheapo Mechanix gloves have little protection but are great on hot days. The M-Pact gloves are great but harder to find and 2-3 times the price. Plus the pointer finger has harder material lowering dexterity.

The gloves I am using right now and am loving are the HK army Hardline gloves. They are comfy, slightly padded and aren't to hot.

Gloves I have had serious issues with are the Planet Eclipse Distortion gloves. They are ridiculously comfortable but don't last long at all. I blew threw a pair in 3 days flat (2 days on a 24 hour game and 1 rec game) my fingers were completely exposed from the palm up.
