Gloves or No Gloves.... That is the Question

When you are playing a tournament, do you wear gloves, why or why not?


Also, I just purchased the new 2010 Dye Perfromance Elbow pads, and they come with the slider gloves already attached, should I wear gloves over those, or should, I just wear only those slider gloves. Also, I play snake, so if I slide and dive, would it rip these little slider gloves up really badly?

I have the Dye elbow pad with the little gloves on them. I only wear them and no other gloves. I play snake alot too, I have had no issues with the gloves getting torn up from diving. the back hand ripped a little from use but no big deal.

I just like the feel I get for the gun with out wearing additional gloves.

Also I think that wearing gloves on top of the ones already on the pads is illegal in most tourneys.

I don't wear gloves/arm pads/knee pads.
Feels like it restricts movement too much.

this would be a bad decision if you want to keep your joints and or bone structure feeling decent wear pads. And, gloves arnt that important they just for if its really cold out

I skip the gloves, I feel like I get better hand movement without them. I used to wear them and cut the index and middle fingers, but decided it worked better without gloves at all.

Valken Two finger gloves are awesome. They don't restrict movement at all and allow you to catch a few bounces off the back of your hand when you snap out. The Kevlar pads on the heel of your palm are nice but aren't really big enough to do much.

I wear these over my Sly pads (with the little "slider glove" thing) and I barely notice either of them are there once the game starts.

i use the eclipse gauntlets. lots of padding on the back and offer good wrist support without hindering finger movement

I play snake; have elbow pads and knee pads. I wear just cheap basic gloves and cut the index and middle finger tips off. Mainly i wear them so when i slide playin rec ball or speedball i dont cut up my palms or get turf burn. Plus the trigger frame gashed up my knuckle last time i didnt wear gloves. They are more a preventitive measure or preference.

HA! I wish I could get away going padless. At my ancient age (27) I have enough creaky joints to protect. So I wear knee pads, elbow pads, look a bandana around the neck for bounces, and wear gloves that I cut the first two fingers off on both hands.

Way back when I started playing woodsball some 14 years ago, one of the first hits I ever took was from my friend sitting in the same bunker as me. I pointed to something, and he accidentally shot me in the finger at about 8 inches. Yea, that scarred me for life, and now I always play with gloves.

Its more bounces for me then protection, so I wear as much as is legal.

Yes, I slide/dive quite a bit.
I'm just used to playing without them.

EDIT: I do wear gloves when it's cold, and only because of the cold.

If you have the slider elbow pads with the thumb thing. Just use that
If not, this works well and is what I use

good way to Not take care of ur body. all athletes should know u must care for ur body.

in regards to the OP, its ur preference about the dye slider gloves. personally, i dont like gloves that are attached to elbow pads, i need to have everything seperate so my joint points feel free movement and can breathe. fingerless gloves ftw, u get protection and free mobility of ur fingers.
