i would probably stick with Eagle, I love the X-70's with split fingers along with leather palms and mustang gussets. They feel so good on the hand. The Vapor XX's are nice but like any Bauer gloves the plam will most likly crust up and they will stick like ass after a while.

I never get how people's gloves stink. I always use a pair of gloves until there's a hole in the palm, then I ditch em, but I've yet to have a glove stink. Perhaps my hands are filled with sunshine and flowers, but my gloves NEVER stink.


BTW...I use the XXs and XVs....NICE gloves. I'm not a fan of Eagle personally.

Why don't you just get them re-palmed? Would be a lot cheaper than buying a brand new pair of gloves every single time you developed a minor hole.

I've had my TPS HGT's re-palmed 3 times over the past year.
