Glove recommendation

What kind of golf glove do you use and can you recommend one?

I have been using the Titleist Player or Perma Soft ones and I like how they feel but they break down pretty quickly. I was wondering if there were any recommendations on some to take a look at.

FootJoy gloves are quite nice looking, they include a ball marker and go for cheap.

Footjoy Weathersof

Now that i play these, i won't play anything else. I had tried several gloves before trying the weathersof's as recommended here. These give better grip and last 3x as long as the others. Nothing cheaper when compared to how many rounds i can get out of 1 weathersof.

I'll agree on the weathersoft. I buy them two at the time (you can find them in two packs) and will rotate each glove every three holes. They last forever this way. I can get 3 months easy out of both gloves and I play 4 times a week or more.

I use the weather sof's mostly.. Then I use some other more expensive FJ glove with the silly ball marker on the logo.. I think the feel of the more expensive one more(obviously, right?)... But the weather sofs last a long time.. They are real comfortable and offer a good fit.. I buy them in 2 and 3 packs so I save a little bit each time.. I get them to last around 2-3 months before I end up getting dirt and mud on them, or stretching them out where they fit a little looser. Then I change.

Another glove to look for is the Adidas Inertia.. I got a 3 pack of them this past summer and I've only use 1.. It's a real nice glove too, although not as finished as the FJ's... Last a while, and it's comfortable too.

I'll toss a recommendation in from left field...

I really like the Etonic Dri-Lite synthetic gloves. I wore one from Sept. 2008 until my last round in December2009. It's the only synthetic glove I've worn that feels as good as leather to me. Tough as nails, survived a lot of sweaty rounds in the humid Kansas summer and several rainstorms where it was totally soaked. The next day was like new. Over 50 rounds on this single glove before I finally started getting some tears in it. They are a great hot weather glove. The best part is they are cheap! Can be had from GolfEtail for about $5 each or less.

If you like leather then the Etonic AC Tour gloves are also a bargain. It's what I wore before switching to the Dri-Lites. Well made and also inexpensive.

My vote is far and away to Mizuno Retroflex leather. By far the longest lasting glove I've used.

I've also heard good things about Oakley, but I've never tried them. Rare to see, but phenomenal longevity is what I have read.

mggolf.com. I get the Tech Grip Glove. I've also used their Dyna glove. Great cabretta leather. Here's the best part...2 for 1 on ALL their gloves. Best deal in town for that quality of glove.

Anyone ever try those Bionic gloves that are supposedly washable?

My boss LOVES those. Bought two, and he's never replaced them yet from about a year ago. He plays probably 4-6 times a month or more. He likes the lack of grip pressue he has to put on the grip to hold it stable.. I haven't tried it yet. I hate the way they look, and for $25 I can get two of any other kinds.

The bionic glove feels great, but it effectually makes your grip MUCH bigger. Honestly, it's almost like wearing a mitten. It's like going from a standard size grip to a jumbo. That's all it really does for you, IMO.
