“ Brand: Nike / Equipment Type: Synthetic / Leather Gloves „
As a keen golfer playing once a week I go through golf gloves every 2 or 3 months. Usually I just buy the cheapest glove in the pro shop as I know its going to wear out within couple of months and will need to be replaced. I decided to try this Nike glove when it was on sale at a major golf retailer. Hoping for a better performance from one of the leading brands.
Packaging was easy to get into and recyclable. Glove fitted easily and was instantly comfortable. It looks good on and feels sturdy and durable. The glove comes in either a white or black colouring and is made of leather. The glove also has a small ball marker attached to it which comes in handy although as with many gloves which have the same thing, I have found it easy to lose the ball marker so I use a different product for this.
The glove gives me a great grip on my clubs. I wear it for all shots apart from chipping and putting and it gives the feeling of extra grip without me strangling the club. Overall performance is high and gives a feeling of having an advantage opposed to using the cheaper gloves I used to. Unfortunately, after around 8 rounds, I have noticed that as with all gloves, the areas on the palm of the hand are starting to wear. This happens to me with all gloves but I hoped this wouldn't be the case with a more expensive glove. Also I am starting to find that on some shots the velcro strap which keeps the glove tight, is coming loose during my down swing. Sometimes resulting in less grip of my club and not the shot I was hoping for.
I have used the glove in both wet and dry conditions and the overall performance of the glove remained the same. Also after a major downpour and a soaking of the glove, it dried out rather quickly and didn't go crispy as I found with a number of the cheaper products. Only noticeable difference after drying out was that the glove seemed to retain some of the dirt and wasn't as white as before, this can only be expected with a leather product though.
I managed to pick up the glove for £7.99 which is around half price compared to buying this glove in a pro shop or out with an in-store deal. Around the normal price I play for a glove and to be honest for the money it cost me it was no worse or better than the gloves I normally purchase.
This is premium golf product in my eyes, by one of the leading manufacturers and I expected better durability. Although the comfort and initial performance was outstanding, this wavered with continued use and the glove broke down dramatically. I cannot see the benefit of buying this glove for around £15 to £20 when a product of similar quality and performance will cost you around half the price.
