I'm wondering if my bottom-of-the-barrel gloves are worth upgrading for a better grip.
Thank you oh wise HF members
It wouldn't be a bad idea to upgrade or to even get your gloves you have now re-palmed. If you like that natural feel with your bare hands I recommend checking around to find the thinnest palm material. That way you will have as close to the bare handed feel as you can get, while keeping your fingers safe and protected in your glove.
Just a thought, I'm sure others have great ideas too.
