After being out of the game for almost 8 years, I'm fortunate enough that most of my gear the I kept was realtively new-ish when I hung it up. Most of it still fits, but the Kobe gloves, which are still in good shape, were never a favorite. I've had Helds, and they were nice, but my all time favorites were a cheap-ish pair of Teknic (sp?) Kangaroo race gloves that were supple and had a ton of feel. I've always gone full gauntlet, but wouldn't mind coming down off the pure-sport/race ledge at this point as long as there's enough protection. A few have caught my eye but I know little about them: - Five Gloves: I don't think I can get them in the US anymore. They look nice, but it seems like the took a shot at this market and gave up. No idea where to source them at this point other than the UK, and would have to be sure they are worth the shipping... - ONEX: They have the right "custom glove" pedigree and the price seems fair, but no one seems to know anything about them. Does anyone here have any experience with them? Worth the money? - Alipinestars: OK, I know who these guys are but I've never owned any of their kit. I thought the SP-1 and SP-2 looked nice for the price. Any other "off" brands out there I'm not aware of? A sincere thanks to anyone who can lead me down the right path on this one.
