I go through one pair a year because the palm wears out on the knob hand from shooting pucks. This year I did the glove repair before they got a hole which is to cut out a piece of leather in a section that would cover a hole made by the knob on a new pair of gloves and contact cementing it on there before they get a hole.
Preventive maintenace I guess. So far so good .... when the leather patch wears out I will reglue another so I never get that first hole in the palm from the stick knob.
