good gloves
« on: November 21, 2004, 05:27:18 PM »
I am looking for a good pair of gloves.  I have tried the myolc gloves and a pair of street hocky gloves.  They are okay.
I was looking at lacrosse gloves.  I am a teacher and my wife is pregnant and can't keep breaking my hands (Broke one in August and have a nice bruise on the other one)
I looked online at STX Fusion lacrosse gloves.  They look to have good protection with supposedly complete wrist mobility.
In addition I know I need to work on my techniques (blocks/combinations and more fighting), has anybody had any experience and thoughts on the matter.

In regards to this part of your post, how did you break it previous times?

What did you not like about the street hockey gloves?

The gloves were good, but i wanted something with a little more protection.  I looked online at CAS (Combative Alliance of Stickfighters, I think) and there was mention of lacrosse gloves.  I thought I would ask about them.

Ah.  Yes some of the street hockey gloves can be rather slender :wink:

With the Lacrosse gloves, be on the alert that some leave the underside of the thumb tip exposed because the thumb protection is not sufficiently jointed.
