After ripping another pair of batting gloves in the cage today (same spot every time. Below the pinky and above the wrist) I was wondering who's had good luck and with what. I have gone through a few pairs this year. Here's what I got:

Demarini F3:
Both pairs felt good, but were not durable at all.

Louisville bionic:
haven't ripped yet, I think its a pretty good glove for $20

Louisville Nomar:
palm gets wrinkled when holding the bat.

Mizuno Pro Limited:
All leather, haven't used them much in the 7 years that I've had them

Nike:
any nike gloves I've gotten have rotted right away

I might just start putting leather bat grip on my cage bat and avoid gloves all the way

If it's for cage use have you tried the Cutter football gloves? Tacky and durable. I like the linebacker gloves with a pad on the top of the hands just in case.

The Louisville gloves are pretty durable I do agree.. That's pretty much what I use..

Ironically enough, I found 5 sealed in the pack pair of Franklin Batting gloves from the late 80's/early 90's and they are still going strong...

If anyone has any ideas on where I could locate some of these, I would love to know... I'd love to find some Blue/Grey like Griffey wore as a rookie, or perhaps some Black/Yellow like Bonds wore as a Pirate... Love those gloves..

I've always been a fan of Franklin's. Their top end gloves, while hard to find at times, have always been good to me.

I agree with the Franklins. I have a pair or white/red nikes that are holding up good.

The top end Franklin's are extremely difficult to beat. They wear like iron and feel great.

I am currently using a pair of the top end Verdero gloves and am quite impressed. Palm material is identical to the Franklins, construction seems top notch. Time will tell.

I know a lot of people who use Cutters. I've never seen a pair wear out.

I used Nikes throughout high school. They always wore out after a season, sometimes less, but they were cheap and did a good enough job. Not to mention the last year I played I could get the Keystones in yellow/black to match our school colors.

Currently I've been using Adidas gloves for softball, but they're about gone about a season and a half of use.

Franklin top end are good, Mizuno Vintage are very good and come in various color combos, Rawlings Workhorse hold up well - Eaton's top end ones (Steath) feel good but get holes in them very quickly

I won a pair of Franklin digital pro batting gloves on Ebay for $5.50.

So far out of all the batting gloves I've been using, Louisvilles have held up best.

Gordon Beckham gave me 5 pairs of All White Franklins on September 11. I'm still on my first pair. I usually go through 2 or 3 by now.

I have a pair of white easton vrs's (the most recent ones) that i woon in easton's huge contest awhile back. Personalized! awesome gloves, but i can see a place where there will be a hole soon. Nike's have never lasted me more than a 20 gm season...

This
the 2008 model lasted me about 120 games and practices in between
the pad also helps when I slide and get bruised there

Greatest gloves of all time

I have a pair of these. They have lasted me ever since and still no holes. I am thinking of getting a pair of nike DE pros. Any experiences with them?
