I guess I should re-edit.

I don't wear pads/gloves/etc.. during tournaments.
I wear them most of the time at practice.

If your in a semi league and the gloves slow your gun down Id say go without...If gloves are hurting your performance in a ramping league..u have other issues...

Even if u dont slide were elbow pads...its called bounce...

Mostly a front/snake player, and I can't not wear elbow/knee pads.
But as far as gloves go, I'm on the fence about it. I like the grip on the gun with gloves on, especially on wet days, but I also don't like the buildup on my wrist of straps etc.
I wear the Sly Tyrants right now, and find them to be the best median. Grip, no finger coverage, and not a big buildup of straps etc. at the wrist.

Had a bad experience on a "turf" field without gloves on once and ended up with blisters the size of quarters on my hands after a few games playing snake. Worn full fingers ever since and still shoot faces.

I don't hjave any good gloves, but I use them when I play, just becuase of bounces+better grip on my marker. I don't think I need pro gloves so I get some cheapies from Wally World, brass eagle's brand.
