They are a little bulky and stiff. Definitely provide plenty of protection but it’s still pretty hard to have the dexterity to tie knots with these on. Great for cranking and pulling on big fish, especially working flat falls all night long.
Aftco understands So Cal, stand up sport fishing. These gloves are made for the stand up angler. I suppose if you are a sit down, rod in holder sort, you might not mind other brands of glove that restrict hand motion... But if you are a stand up anger on big fish, AFTCO had the right glove that will not wear your hand out but will save your hand from friction and blisters. Great gloves!
These gloves fit and feel amazing. Will be testing them out this weekend!
Can't tie knot with glove. On cut back thumb and first finger on one glove to make them useable
So far, so good but need bigger fish in 2019 to verify.
Great experiences with this glove. Since you have the ability to tie knots, being fingerless is a HUGE plus! You do "knot" have to remove your gloves to do so ;-)
they fit great
These gloves are great. Highly recommend using these over the short range. The longer fingers protect the last joint on your finger from braid cuts. Reduces the cuts on your hands from gill plate cuts. Plan on using these for many trips to come!
These gloves really do the trick. I wore these out to the Gulf of Mexico and really put em to the test. Thery performed exceptionally, whether it was battling Bull sharks, or grabbing shrimp outta the livewell.The reinforced finger is great for adding some extra pressure when the fish is running your drag, as well as pulling a snagged line outta the Mangroves. The gloves didnt cause my hands to overheat which was great, the holes in the finger allowed for quick water drainage, the tacky palm and fingers work great for keeping that fish in your hand . I wore em the entire trip and didnt want to take them off @ the end... I recomend these for ANY angler not just deep sea or heavy braided line.. they are versatile enough to wear bass fishing, and I cant wait to wear em Fly fishing too!.. Thanks AFTCO!!!!
