gloves for small hands - 05-09-2019, 06:51 AM

I did a search of the forums and didn't find anything on this so here goes...

My gal pal loves to shoot pool but has a heck of a time finding gloves to fit. She has very small hands and says that she has to try to look for kid's gloves to get something that is not a sloppy fit. I have not seen youth/kids gloves so I'm not sure where she might have seen those.

Obviously the one-size-fits-all stretchy ones don't work for her and I suspect her best bet would be made to size gloves in an Asian sizing.

Has anyone else dealt with this situation? Anybody know of a brand/make/model of gloves that are undersized?

I will of course now go haunt the web looking for these but thought I would check here first...

Thanks.

I bought my better half the "small/medium" Predator brand glove at the Open. It fits her small hand pretty well.

Thanks for the info. Kamui x-small are hard to find, ordered a pink one from Pooldawg.

I've found the Mezz gloves are super tight, made small. I ordered the XL and it's still too small, like a small size with any other brand.

Her hands are so small she has to shop for children's gloves. I wear the Felice one size fits all and they are baggy on her, but I'll check out Mezz.

If you soak any extra-small billiards glove in a sink, in very hot water, (for about 20 minutes at a time) -- over several soaking/drying sessions -- it will soon shrink to where it fits a tinier hand perfectly. Test the fit after each drying session. A few lady acquaintances of mine with tiny hands follow that process with any new extra-small playing gloves they buy.

Then for future washings of the gloves, they just sink-wash in a half-full vanity sink of lukewarm water with a small capful of Woolite mixed in.

I'm surprised... All these posts and nobody has mentioned small hands make the cue look bigger.

Credit to the mature, helpful members here at Azb.

Since you brought it up, she has said that/something like that, to me

Well, the verdict is in, the Kamui x-small fit her perfectly and she is stoked.

It was a little tricky to find one though, only PoolDawg and the Kamui website seemed to have them.

Another thing to note is that the x-small size Kamui is only available in pink and is a limited edition run (profits go to breast cancer research) that will no longer be available after the supply is exhausted. The other colors of Kamui gloves are not made in x-small for some reason.

Let me know if you ever want other colors. Kamui made one for my son and recently mentioned they are for sale. If you decide on another color, I can check on it for you.

I'd recommend a Finger Wrap, sold on Seyberts. One size fits all, and they fit very snug when new - regardless of the size hands/fingers the user has. They gradually stretch out a little bit over usage, but if she only uses them herself and doesn't allow anyone with bigger/thicker fingers to use hers, it should easily last a 3-4 months even for someone who plays virtually every day. I switched from gloves to Finger Wraps a few years ago, and I love them.
