Not the same. I tried those first, they are actually sticky and caused a ton a grip-lock.

The Friction Gloves are totally different material that gives great grip, without feeling "sticky".

I wouldn't recommend a pair unless you throw with both hands. I've been throwing with mine since the holidays and only use the right one. A regular glove on your off-hand is a bit warmer.

I got some of these last month after a review from DGWeekly and finding out that they are local here in Portland.
Tried them out playing a putter only round at Pier Park. The temp was about 35 degrees and they really helped my grip on the cold and slick D-Line plastic. After a couple holes they also helped keep my hands warm. They are definitely a must for playing in the rainy Northwest winters. Totally recommend.

My wife got me one as a gift. I was surprised how grippy it was on a dry disc. I have naturally dry hands and specifically buy star and gstar type plastics to help me out, but when it gets cold, I still have a hard time getting a good grip. Dexterity is pretty good. Grip is exceptional. I even get clean forehand throws with it on. I think it will especially come in handy for me on a bomb throw. Can't putt with it on. Threw just two putts and pulled both to the right even though I barely felt like I was even holding the disc. Didn't putt anymore than that. Didn't want to ruin my normal, non-glove, putting abilities.

Can someone who has used a Friction Glove for awhile comment on durability?

I tried one today with good results. I expected it would negatively affect touch throws. It didn't. I was surprised that my throws were on point right from the start. Even more surprised that I had zero problems putting with it.

Disclaimer: Conditions were hot and humid enough that I would have used a birdie bag for sweaty hands; not raining, definitely not cold.

The thing arrived today and I wanted to see how it felt. 100% satisfied but now wondering if it will last?

I bought my first pair at the end of November last year and they are going strong. That is using them everyday, either at the practice field or on the course. I did buy a back up pair last week because now I would be lost without my glove. An occasional hand washing is good or else they can get stinky with sweat.

Thanks. Sounds like they're built tough. I was impressed enough that I'll think about a just-in-case backup but good to know I shouldn't need it within a few rounds. Good product; much better than I expected.

Gloves have ALWAYS been legal. The rule on artificial devices was added in 1997, but it specifically exempts gloves.
