The Buff Pro-Series Gloves provide anglers with a performance advantage literally in the palm of their hands. These gloves are crafted to enhance dexterity, grip as well as provide UV protection. The Diamond Grip Palm by Clarino provides an extra firm grip for wet & dry and the Stripping Guard offers protection from line burns.
these are nice gloves. They are comfortable and feel durable. looking forward to some good use out of them. Delivery was fast as usual from ACK.
I am having a love/hate relationship with my Buff Pro Angler Gloves. For gloves so expensive I expect a higher level of satisfaction but did not fully receive from the experience. Lets start with the love them list: 1. The sun protection is great, especially like the longer coverage of the wrist which really gets sunburned with my other gloves and is a cancer worry. 2. light weight and non-stiff paddling grip is great and takes well to water and cleaning and do not get stiff. 3. Features of easy on & off pull tabs is better than anything else I have seen. Now to what I do not love: 1. Sizing is confusing and not related to regular glove sizes requiring customer to call them for size recommendations. I wear a size L in all my gloves so do I order a M/L or a L/XL? 2. The back of the glove is flimsy for fishing. Snag by a hook appears to turn into a longer running tear according to a friend who bought his before I did. 3. The design of the finger coverage is longer than other paddle gloves. Not a problem for some but if your index finger is shorter than your ring finger the glove interferes with the first bend in your index finger and harms spinning reel casting. Considering the cost I expected it to be totally a better glove, but it is not better for me.
Durable glove, a bit thicker than the regular sun gloves I used to use. The padding on palms and inside of fingers takes some getting used to, but overall I like them. Cleaning is simple, most of the time I just rinse them off with the rest of my gear and air dry. Have used them for 20+ saltwater trips so far and no signs of wear or tear.
Good construction...easy to pull on with leather tabs...comfortable...no blisters... CRUNCHY!
