Good for you. Anything more to go on?

Gloves come at many different price points and fits. Some are much ore durable then others, but those others often have much better feel.

You're really going to need to tell us what you're looking for. Loose fit? tight fit? Cheap? Cost not an issue? Do you want them to last or do you want them to perform?

Honestly, the best thing you can do for gloves is go to a store that has a wall of them and try a bunch out, grab both grip and non grip sticks from the wall, perhaps borrow a smart ball to get the feel of stickhandling.

CCM V10.. 150 or so. Best gloves I've used by far, though I haven't scored since I made the switch... just have had bad luck.

I'm a fanboy of the Bauer Supreme Series. Very very mobile gloves.

Do yourself a favor, drive to your local pro shop, and try different ones on.

For me, after skates, gloves are the most difficult piece of equipment to fit comfortably. I have to have a glove with a cuff that fits and flexes in a very specific way or they go in the trash.

AK-27 (not the pro) are pretty terrible.

But yea, anything by Bauer, CCM, Reebok, TPS, Sherwood, Torspo, Brooklynite, Warrior, Cooper, Ferland, DR, Eagle, or Northland should be good.

If you like loose fit, get 4 rolls. (bauer, ccm, rbk)

If you like a tighter fit, most brands offer at least 2 different series of gloves that fit and feel differently. You have to try them out to see which ones you like, but if your going in blind i don't think you can go wrong with bauer 4 rolls.

I use cheap Missions. They don't last long, but the don't cost much and they feel great.

IMO you don't get much out of high priced gloves other than durability, and it isn't enough to justify the price difference.

I had cheap some cheap sher-woods a few years ago and I thought the same thing. One hyper extended thumb later I realized that all gloves are not created equally. Put a cheap glove on and try bending your thumb backwards. Now do it with most higher quality gloves. Big difference.

Durability and the comfort of knowing your hand won't shatter if you get a hard slash. It's a wonder what denser foams and plastic inserts can protect you from.
