I've tried all variations. All personal preference, but here are my experiences.
Traditional fit for me is so boxy that my hand has so much slop and the glove is constantly twisting around. Then I went down a size and it was better but the fingers were too short. Here I've tried 4-Rolls and a TPS R8's.
I tried tapered fit, but again, there's too much play in the palms and cuffs for my tastes. Felt like the gloves weren't on all the way. This was CCM Vector Pros and Vapors.
So I prefer the anatomical fit that is just a bit loose (in terms of size). I've tried tighter anatomical fit but then I feel like there's not enough protection and the cut of the gloves needs to be perfect for me to be happy. If it's a bit loose, I can deal with the palm being cut a little funky. Did Bauer One75's and currently two pairs of Warrior Koncepts.
