Exact same materials and make as Molinari
Only the strap isn't cut at the wrist, making the glove fit tighter

It's 3 times cheaper than Molinari, and I'm never going back

Got mine today - took 1 week to ship (funny story - ordered 3 books on the same day coming fed-ex from PA - they aren't here yet but the gloves are)

Same apparent fabric as the Molinari, the wrist band is actually thicker. The pad for your palm is sewn inside the glove, not on the outside like my Molinari (V1 i think - it's 2 years old) The seam for the thumb is on the outside of the thumb, not on the inside so it doesn't interfere with a closed bridge. Also, the mostly useless velcro piece is actually a design improvement IMO, as my velcro on my Molinari was constantly sticking to the rest of the glove - don't ever need to undo this one, so that won't happen.

I have no idea how it will hold up to daily use, but first impressions are that they are well made of a good material and are more than a bargain at the price.

Tighter than Molinari? As in damn near suffocating. I cut the seam on my Molinari about 3/4 of the way up the pinky side so I could actually wear it without seriously cutting off the blood supply. It amazingly still holds up well. Just wish they made one in an XL. Oh well, those Kamuis are just as sweet.

Thanks for the link. Sometimes finding gloves (or at least the ones I like at a reasonable price) for the right hand is difficult. Just ordered two. Delivery says between Aug 31 and Oct 13 - slow boat from China!

I got those about a month ago for my son, got 3 of them. They must be from the same place that makes the other gloves, really not much difference. Once you get a design and material spec into China for someone to build, it's not long before there is at least one company coming out with almost the same product with maybe a bit less polish and attention to detail but with the major parts the same. There is really no shyness there when it comes to ripping off designs.

My order arrived today -- so 10 calendar days - sweet!

They arrive in hard plastic small tubes. The glove feels good on the hand for sure. The "open mesh" part of the glove looks like it will help to dissipate heat and be more comfortable. I like open fingers, which is one reason I ordered these. The fingers are a bit long from what I am used too, but should not be a problem. Overall, without playing yet, I like these a lot.

I can't tell from the pics, but does it have a Velcro tab that will allow a big hand to slide in easily? I don't care how tight it is once it's on my hand, but my huge paws tend to bust a seem or two when I'm putting them on.

I don't have a long history of being a glove player, but I have had a couple and none of them have been anywhere near as good or comfortable as this one.

Even though I usually have sweaty hands, my hands never sweated wearing this glove. Brian's fixed their A/C, so that may have helped as well.

The material is different than my other gloves. They were some sort of rayon-type stuff and weren't as slick as whatever this is made of where the cues slides across your fingers.

I have small hands and the glove fits me okay, but I can see where it may be a tight fit if someone has very large hands.

I will definitely buy some more of these and would recommend them to anyone who likes using a glove.

This is a very fine glove but too tight even for my hands. I use it anyway but take an aspirin to increase blood flow.

Yeap ..lol wow..

I just paid $8 just 3 weeks ago (bought 2 Red 3 Black and 3 Blue- all left hand)... Talk about China's inflation. Chinese Capitalism at its finest... but still not $30...

Like JoeyA says.. avoid if you have larger sized hands (pretty tight on my medium sized hands..)

doesn't anyone care that Molinari painstakingly put the time, effort and research into designing one the best designed gloves on the market and the factory that makes the glove is most likely just spitting his design out?

I'm not judging anyone, I just ordered one myself to see if it's legit. Not sure I will wear it because I have enough issues in my game, don't want the bad Karma. Naw, I probably will. :cool:

Same thing happened with the JB cases but at least Seyberts had some integrity and dropped the line. Hell, for all I know maybe they made the brand and was forced to drop it. Scary, you come up with an idea, you have to almost get it made in China to be competitive and nothing can stop them from ruining your hard earned market.

Has anyone here that uses a glove tried a finger wrap? I tried one a few months ago and have used one ever since, instead of a glove. I find it as an excellent alternative to a glove.

What I like is your exposed palm is still on the table or on the rail, providing more stability than a glove. Also, you don't have to take it off for retrieving balls out of pockets or racking the balls. And one size fits all.

I used them before I used a glove.

I liked them and would use them again, but they are way over priced. I'm going to buy some material and make some myself.

There is not a manager taking McDonald's exact formula and parts of a cheese burger--Walking out the back door with boxes of it and selling it 1/3 the cost at the corner.

I think you could of came up with a better metaphoric comparison then that. :D

I agree. There comes a time when the consumer has to back the companies of the products they love. We expect them to pour all sorts of money into R&D, and also all sorts of money into tournaments and promoting the game we love, we need to give a little back via loyalty.

I bought one of these gloves after seeing this thread here, it is for the price a nice glove. Before this one I had bought a pack of ten for like 5 bucks on ebay and they were junk, glad I found this one and should have bought more at the time because you never know what the next batch will be like.

I ordered a hundred cheap billiard gloves from china about 5 years ago .
69 cents per glove .

They were nothing special and developed holes close to my finger tips in them with in 12 hours of wearing one .


The gloves did provide a smooth surface and I didn't have to worry about washing the gloves .
I would toss the glove as soon as the holes were to big .

Second to market often reaps greater rewards. Anything that is popular will be copied. And the easier it is to build the more chance that copies will come from multiple sources.

I don't know what the cost to Molinari is for the gloves. I don't know what the cost of development was. What I do know is that the product is relatively easy to make so at a $30 price point it makes for a big target.

Competition is what drives innovation. First to market has the revenue advantage with being able to charge the highest prices. Second to market has the profit advantage by being able to ride on the first mover's R&D and marketing.

Price levels the playing field forcing the first to market to either lower their prices or continue to innovate and thus justify the prices being asked. There is almost no product that is safe from competition and imitation. The best defense I have found is to have an incredibly strong quality to value ratio. If my competitors have to build to my quality levels then they are unlikely to be able to do so for less than it costs me and if my products are priced so that the value exceeds the price being asked then it's unlikely that the competition can afford to sell their knockoffs for much less than we charge. And when the price is close then the choice is clear, go with the proven brand.

And when the prices are very different then either the name brand has very high-profit margins thus allowing the competitor to make the same quality and sell for less while still profiting well, OR the knockoff has poor quality and hopes to sell based on the similar look. And that's what consumers have to find out for themselves. Makers can make their comparisons and claims but ultimately the market decides because people share experiences.

Seyberts was cool to drop the knockoffs but they also realized the power of a quality brand ultimately brings them more sales because people looking for that brand show up at their store. And happy customers who get a great quality product tend to bring more people to the store.

And the world keeps turning.....
