spend some more money and get a pair of ferlands. for about 150, they'll last you a long time. and they are the most comfy out there.

Pfft, if you're gonna spend $150 bucks on gloves forget the Ferlands, buy Eagles.

Anyway, why not look into getting your current gloves re-palmed?

i tried eagles they weren't for me. i've had three pairs of ferlands ( since i'm 18 about 20 years). best palm i've had. very soft.

Each person is going to have a different on what gloves fit them best. Your best bet is to go to your local hockey shop stand in front of the huge wall of gloves and just start trying them on. Just because it works for one person doesn't mean it will work for another.

You should try to find the digi-nash palms. Not in your price range but I have the S17's and they have the complete palm in that material. I usually tear a hole in my top hand about every 6 months below the pinkie on the palm. The nash stuff seems to be holding up better than the leather. I would focus in on last years models on clearance. You can get $140 gloves for $70 right now, you just have to look around.

If you have money to spend then I would suggest you buy Eagle gloves. They are great.

I got these recently.

http://hockeymonkey.com/ccm-hockey-glove-vector-6.html

I like the design, stiff thumb, really good grip in the palm. They're a mid-range, so not top of the line, but still great. It was an upgrade compared to my crappy old gloves. Regardless, they have to "layers" of padding around the wrist, one tighter around the wrist, then some space, then another wider one. It allows for great wrist movement, while keeping a stiff feeling and great protection. I would recommend it, but maybe someone here could recommend something better.
