I play on Valley pool tables all around town in league, and the metal corner protectors on the tables tend to snag and chew up all pool gloves pretty regularly, no matter the brand.

The longest lasting gloves I've tried after trying soooo many are Bullet Proof (like the tips) and 3 Seconds.
The glove manufacturers have a problem with keeping the gloves skin tight and as thin as possible.
So they don't last very long. I was getting new gloves about every 6 months.
The above last about 3x as long.

I've gotten much more life out of one of these than I did all other gloves combined.... no palm to wear out.



Weird that they won't let you check out unless you have an account with them.
Not doing it.

The issue with gloves is.

You want a glove so thin that it feels like you are not wearing a glove at all. Now the material is so thin that they fall apart quickly.

You want a glove that lasts? The material can't be that thin.

What's you balance?

My localish billiard supply store has them, so I dunno. The link I shared was the result of an internet search for the purpose of posting in this thread. I didn't order from that link.

I mean 6 months isn’t that bad. I play almost every day. Now that I think about it I think I’ve had my Kumai for maybe 9 months and it’s fine.

That’s what I said lol I love predator gloves because they are so thin BUT because they are so thin they wear out quickly

I've tried some more expensive gloves and the 6 for 10$ ones from Amazon. My favorite is the Pooldawg brand for 5$. It's slick and wears fairly well. They're not always in stock though.
