Glove Question

Hi there!

I'm looking for a new pair of gloves. In The low to medium price range. I don't care if they are leather or fabric. I just want a very short cuff. Any suggestions?

-cheers Torque

If you're playing in a league I'd recommend plastic inserts/backrolls for slash protection, which you usually won't find in cheap gloves. If it's just for messing around, get whatever feels good in the store.

Eagles have a pretty short cuff although they usually are pricey. Bauer 4-Rolls are big enough you can usually size down and have the short cuff.

Winnwell gloves from hockeyworld.com right now i think are $25 and the G-Lites are what i play with and love them. they do run a little small though.

material shouldn't be a concern. What's important for us to offer you suggestions is the type of fit you prefer. Do you like narrow/tight fitting gloves, or wider, roomier traditionally fitted gloves?

Right now I'm wearin 15" gloves and they sit very loose. I quiet like it, but I think I have a bit trouble with stick handling. So I think about making the switch to 14" or even 13".

What about the Bauer X-15?

Not very good, but seriously, if you'd only looking at cheap gloves it doesn't matter what anyone thinks, only if it's comfortable.

yeaaahhhh.... for any low priced gloves, protection will be quite poor obviously, stay away from the One35s btw

get w/e you like, and if you can find some Easton SE6's or SE16's on sale, then try those

The reebok 6k and the ccm v06 are decent gloves for a low price
