    Just picked up a pair at the FHS in long beach, pelagic brand. Haven't had a chance to get a cow, but I get them because I'm trying to get more and more into popping/stick bait fishing with spectra filled spinners. I noticed when throwing theses lures, the spectra would cut up my index finger bad... I was really looking for a one finger glove. I'll try these out. 65 lb spectra hurts after about the 10th or so cast. Spectra filled with a short 2-3 foot mono leader.

    FWIW, I just did a quick search and saw that archery stores sell 3 finger gloves and kite stores sell index finger gloves.

    Put some duct tape on the index finger. Love my Pelagics, but the vent holes in the fingers are a site for tearing to start.

    Braid will tear up pretty much any gloves casting big lures with a spinner. I put a single layer of duct tape on, stick the ends to itself on the backside, then trim it close with scissors and that will pretty much last the whole trip. However, I always have a back up pair too and have found the mechanic gloves at any hardware store usually have something that will work.

    I have always worn fingerless fishing gloves. However, on my last offshore trip, due to a confluence of unfortunate circumstances, I lost hold of my favorite rig and threw a custom rod and and Avet HX overboard. One of the deckhands (MD) said to me, "Take off the gloves and you'll never lose another rod."

    So now I am confused, wondering if the gloves were the problem. I noticed that my knots were always better when I wore gloves because I could pull hard on the line without cutting myself.

    I was doing the vet wrap thing for years and still do depending on the trip. The wifes brother worked for 3M a while back so she had a few cases of it when I met her. I'd take a razor and cut up a couple of different widths. Only problem if on a long fight the wraps either work their way loose or slowly slide off your finger. Now who is going to rewrap their finger in the middle of a fight?
    For the last couple of years I've been using some highly cut resistant kevlar style gloves I found at work. They are snug fitting and breathable. Like most I only wear the left hand and keep the right hand in my pocket.

    A few pro's to using the gloves.

    If you plan on doing a lot of late night jigging with the pl-68 , your fingers will thank you for them.

    When reeling back your 200yds of loose line you can put a little more tension on the line so you wont end up with not enough room on the spool for the last 20yds on line.

    When palming the spool its easier to guide the 100JB back onto your spool when you have 30# of drag.

    the only con I can think of
    is if someone makes fun of your glove. at that point you take off your glove and slap them in the face with it..

    On Fishy's advice, I tried using batting gloves. Work perfectly for my purposes, especially using my fingers to put a little extra drag on the spool.

    Mine are Mizuno, but it's time for a new pair.

    guys on wicked tuna wear them to pull in line.. Now granted we don't pull in line on those monsters but I see them being useful...

    I purchased the costco ones last month and will cut tips off to fish to avoid cuts and blisters... Glad someone else mentioned this as I thought I was alone..
