Friction disc golf specific gloves?
 
So, As I was browsing the 2016 top rated course list from the home page, I saw an ad on the sidebar that caught my attention...

DG specific gloves

http://www.frictiongloves.com/store/...lf_Gloves.html

Anybody have any experience with these in particular? Or any other gloves while golfing? It's getting cold here, and the idea of a glove that I don't have to take off every time I throw is intriguing...but I just don't see it working well.
Seems like there would be a big lack of feel, due to the fit of the glove or just the thickness of the material.

Anybody? Looks interesting... Also says they came from Ultimate. I could maybe see them being useful and not as much of a hindrance with the size of a lid, but the small sizes of golf disc rims leave me doubtful.

Also, what the legality of using a glove during sanctioned play?

I bought a pair of the Friction gloves about three or so weeks ago. In Florida, it's not about the cold but the rain. I can't give much of a review because it hasn't rained around here since I got them. They do feel comfortable and do seem to grab a disc real nice when I wetted it down.

I just played picnic island for the first time last weekend...Awesome course.

Back to the point, the wet was a huge hindrance in my round today as it rained all night/morning and was muddy everywhere. After a few holes my towel had reached its capacity so everything was pretty damp.

They fit ok? No real feel difference? How thick is the material?

I'm primarily a Forehand player, so I wonder how they differ between backhand and forehand

Maybe slightly ambiguous, but I'd say legal. I'd probably call them medical items, since the intent probably isn't to reduce abrasion.

I have them and they r great. Doesn't really affect me much at all. They grip much better than I expected. I throw primarily RHBH, but I threw some distance FH shots while wearing them and they weren't an issue. Won't be wearing them come summer(unless it's raining), but for winter they have been great

I decided to get me a pair after seeing this video.

Next question then.

Do they IMPROVE your grip? Enhancing your grip on the disc? Perhaps becoming a crutch?

I could see the legality of them coming in to question if this was the case? But, then wouldn't thinks like chalk/birdie bags also be of the same category?

I personally don't think so, but I guess that's an opinion.

Got a pair of these for Xmas.

FANTASTIC. Grip is great, feel is the same as no glove... I've played 4 rounds with them so far, and I've been driving much better. No grip-lock, no early slip-outs. Just good grip and clean releases. Good for FH and BH.

I'm sold. They are staying the bag permanently.

I got some for Crimbo and love them. They're really helpful in wet conditions; no more slips. Well, other than from my lack of skill.
