Question Good Paintball Gloves

Right now I have a pair of Dye C10? I think armpads with the palm slider gloves, but I'm looking for some full hand protection since I'm sick of getting cuts all over the back of my hand from shell, and need some better grip on my marker.

I've looked at the Valken 2011 ($20) and 2012 ($37) and Empire 2012 LTD 2012 ($37) two finger gloves. I would really prefer two-finger gloves since I play exclusively semi, but if there is a good deal on full finger gloves I might still be interesed, but between the three of these is it worth the money for the 2012 Valken or Empire?

Also Ive tried Mechanix gloves and didnt like them even after being cut so dont suggest those or similar please.

I've used the JT gloves, but they were custom modified to be fingerless. Good grip, and the stay on.

Were they the new JT FX gloves or some of the older ones? The old styles don't come in my size

I think they're Carnivores. I'm looking at them now, and they don't seem to come in full finger.

JT gloves have already been mentioned and are a solid pick in my opinion. However, I actually found the best gloves I ever used were a pair of reebok workout gloves xD

Hmm, I think I might check some of the other sport sections at Sports Authority, thanks for the input.

I have the Valken two finger gloves and they are really nice. They are sized a bit big tho. I usually wear medium gloves but for Valken I need a small. But the Valken gloves are very durable. I have only tried on the Empire gloves and they seem to be a decent option as well. Just not as much padding on the Empire as the Valken gloves.

I have use mostly half-finger gloves. Half-finger gloves works good for slides and it gives better grip to hold my gun, good for walking the trigger as well. And it's very comfortable. Other than that gloves IMO don't help. at this moment.
