left glove breaking down
 
So im a righty and my left hand sits on the top of my stick.. my problem is that the left palm of my glove is almost broken down compared to the right palm. I know its because of the tape on the top of my stick causing the friction. How can i fix this. My gloves are some crappy koho 4410 comfort series but im attached to them!!:)

If you're using black tape switch to white, if your using white, remove the tape, or find a different source of grip. This is just a side effect of friction tape.

You can try either a Tacki-Mac or an Oggie grip as an alternative to tape to help reduce the amount of wear on the palm of your glove.

If you mean how can you fix the glove, you can just take it to your LHS and they can most likely repalm it.

though I heard at the end of the day that they may help... it will still wear through

lots of people just get them patched

or get them repalmed

I suggest if you want a cheap and good solution... go to your shoe maker and see what they can get a lambskin or horsehide in for... I paid $30 to do an old pair and they rock

I thought I prefered Clarino, but I think leather is more durable and a high end leather will be just as thin and won't get as crusty.

after I went through the palm of my top hand glove in only a few months I switched to Taki-Mac grips. Haven't needed to replace them since , and the palms on my gloves still look new 2 years later.

I was going to post almost exactly this. Taki-Mac is the way to go.

gloves are going to wear out, you best bet is go buy a decent set of gloves and then they will last longer than cheep gloves

michaelshu 02-19-2012 06:43 AM

i second what some said above, get a decent pair of gloves (mid level ones will do) and get tacki-mac.. they're awesome

The GLOVE has nothing to do with the palm wearing out.. if anything the difference between a cheap glove and mid level glove is the material of the palm and protection.. So i guess yah the palm on a mid level glove will probably be of a better material, but the glove has nothing to do with it.

In the past I've had gloves repalmed, but they never feel the same way afterwards. I would personally try and get another pair of gloves on clearance.

To reduce the wear, Tacki Mac works well if you like their patterns. I haven't had much issue with Powerflex tape.

opivy 02-20-2012 12:05 AM

I like the self adhesive tape, the stuff that is like the wrap they put on sprained ankles and wrists.

My gloves haven't shown any wear at all after switching to this tape.

you buy a better glove, you get better material on the palm, its a simple as that

Can you buy Tacki Mac in retail or does it have to be online?

all depends on your local hockey shops. out of the plethora of shops here in north jersey, i've found all of 1 place that carries them.

not sure what you're getting at there.
if you mean better feeling/performing palm, then yeah, i agree with you. if you mean more durable, then with the exception of eagle's msh2, i couldn't disagree with you more.
generally, i find the palms in top line gloves to be less durable of anything than midline and lower end gloves because they are typically aimed at giving the best feel and performance, not for durability(again, with the exception of eagle's msh2).

i've had bauer vapor xxxx, xxv's and x60 pro's, tps r8, bauer 4 rolls and am now switching between a pair of eagle ppfi and custom warrior franchises with the standard micronash palms. nothing comes close to the eagles in durability, and the palms on the other gloves have poor to decent durability at best. interestingly enough, even though i only had the xxv's for a short period, they were 2nd in terms of palm durability for me by quite a margin, but easily the poorest in terms of feel.

I'm going to have to agree with this as well. Palm durability isn't a consistent upgrade when you move up price points across brands. There are definitely cases where a higher end palm will be more durable than a lower end one since the higher end palm has more overlay material, but from what I've seen, it's all over the place in terms of consistency. One thing that should be consistent is that natural leathers (goat, Pittards etc.) should be more durable than synthetic (nash, clarino).

I mean, it's not a bad guideline to have but what I'm saying is that don't be surprised if it fails.

True. We have all colors and all sizes! :yo:

Oh and squid, in the future, try using the multiquote instead of multiple posts if you can :)

Great I'm gonna check this out. I can start to see some small holes in my warrior reflex palm that I got back in november so it'd be nice to nip it in the bud while its not too bad.

Jarick 02-20-2012 09:25 PM

Yeah it depends on the material. Nash holds up pretty well in my experience, as does Clarino. I had a digital palm that ripped up VERY quick.
