My new gloves arrived today, and they are everything that I was hoping for and more! I love them! To recap, I bought the Pro-Mark Drummer's Gloves (or Pro-Mark Bionic Drummer's Gloves).

If you want a detailed review so that you can learn some of the details about why I like these gloves so much, then please tell me because I am mentally prepared for it. I have a lot to say. Smile For now, I'll just say it one more time: I LOVE THEM! I am extremely grateful to D'Addario and Pro-Mark for making them. The most important thing to me was the grip, and it's everything that I was hoping for. I am able to play with an extremely loose and relaxed grip now; far looser and more relaxed than normal and my gloves almost seem to hold on to the sticks for me. I love it! The best part: when I put them on for the first time today, I had cold and dry hands, so it was the perfect test. I only have my pad, but I was able to play immediately almost as though I had already warmed up a little bit. That's perfect! They're very comfortable too.

There's one more thing to mention right away though: I wouldn't use these for traditional grip. There isn't enough of this grippy leather they're using (top grade cabretta leather) in the crotch of the thumb and index finger (in the "fleshy" part, as Dave Weckl says). There's a little bit more of the breathable mesh than the leather in this critical area for traditional grip, and that results in very little grip there. When I tried traditional, the stick didn't want to stay in that fleshy part and it ended up slipping out. So, I would say that these sticks are strictly for matched grip. That's fine by me because I only play matched grip. I know how to play traditional on my pad to an extent thanks to learning from Dave Weckl's How to Develop Technique video and Jim Chapin's video, but I've never felt the desire to strengthen it and then bring it to the drums.

For me though, these gloves are absolutely perfect. They are exactly what I was looking for! I'm extremely happy with them.

Again, if you want me to go into detail, then let me know and I'll make another post.
