經典不敗:傳統布手套的實用主義至上魅力

Timeless classics: the pragmatic charm of traditional cloth gloves

ChangWilson

Generally, fabrics used in gloves such as microfiber cloth, hydrophilic cloth , and rainy gloves can be classified into this category. Traditional cloth gloves have become the most popular type of glove among hitters on the driving range due to their exceptional durability. There is an interesting rule in the industry that higher-end gloves tend to be less durable. After all, higher-end gloves pursue control and touch. The gloves are thinner and are more easily damaged than strong cloth gloves.

Traditional cloth has almost no durability issues. Except for the common loosening and breakage of the sutures, cloth gloves have almost no breakage problems. For people who practice frequently, this is undoubtedly very attractive. During practice, the frequency of strikes is extremely high. Players pay more attention to the protective effect of gloves on the hands, and can temporarily put aside other requirements.

Advantages of cloth gloves Disadvantages of cloth gloves
Durable and wear-resistant Not good in hand
Affordable price Weak control
Water absorbent and hydrophilic Poor elasticity
Breathability

Improvement direction

In order to give cloth gloves more functions, or to strengthen specific functions to make them more suitable for use in specific situations, manufacturers often optimize cloth gloves in the following ways:

  • Elasticity: Elastic gloves have become a very popular product on the market. Elastic fabric makes it easier for hitters with special hand types to find gloves that suit them. The improvement in elasticity makes it suitable for more hand types.
  • Breathability: Generally speaking, gloves made of traditional cloth have good breathability. However, in order to enhance this performance, some glove brands add breathable mesh to enhance breathability. The disadvantage is that the elasticity and coverage are slightly insufficient.
  • Anti-slip: By adding silicone or other high-friction substances to the surface of the gloves to enhance the anti-slip effect.
  • Rainy days: Generally speaking, as long as the gloves are made of traditional cloth, they have a certain degree of water absorption and water content. After the water molecules come into contact with the gloves, they are absorbed by the material, and the water molecules do not stay on the contact surface between the gloves and the club. , it will not slip when swinging, and still retains the original friction of the cloth. This kind of glove can be used well in rainy days, but the shortcomings are also obvious. The breathability of traditional cloth gloves decreases sharply after absorbing too much moisture, and the palms will be worn for a long time. It feels hot and humid when worn. There are specific styles of gloves on the market that use thicker flannel to enhance their performance in rainy days, which can hold more moisture and make them special gloves for rainy days.

We won’t go into details about other special types of gloves, such as fingerless gloves, decorative gloves, etc. If you find new types of gloves on the market or find shortcomings in the article, you can also leave us a message in the message box in the lower right corner. , we can discuss and promote each other together!

At present, GoPlayer has also launched two traditional cloth gloves, which are currently the most common gloves in practice fields in Taiwan:

Both gloves use first-generation silicone to cover the palm of the hand to enhance the friction of the user's swing. In addition, the ultra-fine fabric itself has good friction. The combination of the two achieves a good anti-slip effect. If you are interested in our gloves, you are welcome to inquire at major distribution points across the province, or purchase through the official flagship stores of major e-commerce platforms.

Featured Q&A

Why do you need to wear gloves when playing golf?

The origins of golf gloves can be traced back to the early history of golf. The earliest golf gloves were designed to provide better grip and protect the player's hands.

In Scotland, the birthplace of golf, golfers often use sheepskin gloves. These gloves provide a better grip on the club and reduce friction on the hands. This is very important for playing golf in different weather conditions. In wet Scottish weather, maintaining a stable grip on the club is crucial.

  • Friction, control, and stability: Golf club handles are often made of metal, rubber, or other materials, and they can become relatively slippery, especially in humid or hot weather conditions. Wearing gloves can provide a better grip and help you hold the club more firmly, improving your swing control and stability.
  • Protection (Reduced Friction): The golf club swing creates some friction, which can lead to wear, blisters, or abrasions on your hands if you don’t wear gloves. Wearing gloves can reduce friction between your hands and club and protect your skin.
  • Provide comfort: Wearing gloves can provide a level of cushioning and support, making your hands feel more comfortable during your swing. This helps reduce the impact of the golf swing on the hand and reduces fatigue.
  • Prevent Sweat: In hot weather, your hands may sweat, which can lead to slippery hands and reduced grip. Golf gloves are often sweat-wicking, which can help absorb sweat and keep your hands dry, thus maintaining a better grip.
  • Fashion: Good-looking gloves show a golfer's confident style.

In short, wearing gloves can improve the golfer's control, comfort and protection, and is an important piece of equipment in the game of golf. Different golfers may choose different types of gloves to suit different weather conditions and personal preferences.

Can I play ball without gloves?

A: Yes.

Whether to wear gloves is a personal choice and can be decided based on personal preference and actual conditions.

Some golfers choose not to wear gloves because they prefer the feel of the club with their bare hands, or they think gloves will reduce their feel. In dry and mild weather conditions, some golfers may prefer not to wear gloves.

However, in wet or cold weather conditions, or when hands are prone to sweating, wearing gloves can provide better grip and protection. Gloves also reduce friction against the skin of your hands during the golf swing, reducing fatigue and discomfort.

The author roughly lists the factors that affect the quality of sheepskin:

  • Variety
  • Origin
  • parts
  • Post-processing technology
  • Cutting, stitching and sewing techniques

Among them, the variety, part, and post-processing technology are the factors that are easiest for the public to identify and have the greatest impact on the quality of sheepskin.

Different types of sheepskin, parts and post-processing techniques will cause great differences in the feeling of use. Inferior quality sheepskin may not be as comfortable as synthetic leather, and the cost and pricing will of course vary greatly!

Variety

  • Cabrettas: The top and most recognized sheepskin for sheepskin gloves comes from Cabrettas sheep. The name Cabrettas actually comes from the Spanish and Portuguese word for goat (goat). Cabretta sheep are small goats mainly found in South Africa. The leather of this sheep is very thin and soft, making it ideal for making leather goods that require flexibility and comfort, especially gloves. At present, the top styles of the world's top golf glove brands or the gloves launched by luxury brands also mostly use Cabrettas sheepskin (sheep leather) as raw materials.
  • Other breeds of sheep: Generally speaking, in terms of breed, if a glove brand uses non-Cabretta sheepskin, it will not specify the breed. For consumers, the quality difference of this kind of leather mainly comes from the selected parts and post-processing technology.

Origin

Cabretta goats are mainly distributed in areas such as South Africa, Ireland, and Australia, so these places have become the main producing areas of Cabretta leather. Cabretta leather from different regions may have slightly different characteristics and qualities, depending on the goat breed, diet and other environmental factors. Other sheepskin-producing regions such as China, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, etc., have extensive goat and sheep farming industries. Although these countries also produce high-quality sheepskins, they also produce large quantities of low-end and cheap sheepskins, which are usually used in mass production. cheap leather products. Low-end sheepskins in these areas are usually less expensive and not as good as high-end leathers.

  • South Africa: South Africa is one of the main production areas of Cabretta leather. The country's dry climate and large tracts of pasture make it an ideal location for lambskin production.
  • Ireland: Ireland is one of the main producers of Cabretta leather and is known for its rich grasslands and climate suitable for raising lambs. Irish lambskin generally has excellent texture and quality.
  • Australia: Australia’s sheepskin industry also produces high-quality sheepskins. Australian lambskin is renowned for its softness and durability.
  • New Zealand: New Zealand is also a major producer of sheepskin, especially famous for its Merino leather. These leathers are used in high-end clothing and other fine leather goods.
  • China: China is one of the largest sheepskin producers in the world. Sheepskin in China is used to make a variety of leather goods, including footwear, clothing, handbags and homewares.
  • India: India is also an important source of sheepskin, which is used to make a variety of leather goods, including shoes, gloves and clothing.
  • Argentina: Argentina is one of the largest sheepskin producers in South America and is famous for its high-quality sheep hides, especially the Cordeva region.
  • Turkey: Turkey produces many types of sheepskin that are used to make footwear, clothing, and other leather goods.

Parts & Cuts

  • Full-Grain Leather : the highest grade. The outermost layer of leather retains the natural texture and pores of sheepskin, making each piece of leather unique! Has excellent softness, durability and feel.
  • Top-Grain Leather : Full-grain leather that has been processed and ground. Smoother than full-grain leather, more consistent in appearance, softer and better to the touch, thinner than full-grain leather, and easier to break. The raw material of the PGA TOUR lambskin gloves that my company has sold well for many years is full-grain leather.
  • Split Leather
