I swear by those gloves and can't understand why anybody would ever buy those leather ones.

I switched to a narrower main sheet (6mm) and was really
struggling to grip it properly. Now with these gloves I
can hold the main, even just around two fingers, without
any problem at all!

For 3 quid I can afford to get through 10 pairs before
they cost anymore than my Gill Mitts which have just
about had it now.

The narrower main sheet is great too by the way. Runs so
much more freely.
