Do you remember the scene in Major League where Willie Mays Hayes hangs his boring black gloves on the wall after every steal? For years, I felt like Willie Mays Hayes and I were kindred spirits.  After every golf season I would clean out my golf bag and pull out white glove after white glove…boring!  All of us over here at Golf Starz love to add some color to our game and Bender is pushing the limits.

Bender recently sent over the Mesh, Spandex, and Synthetic gloves to review.

I am a huge fan of the designs they offer on each glove.  Their offering includes a range of solid colors across the spectrum to some very creative designs.  The digital camo glove is a new favorite in my lineup.  If you are still rocking a white glove, the solid color line up will allow you to dip your toe in the water.  For those of you who may want to take your glove game up a level,Bender‘s original designs will allow you to rock anything from the classic red, white, and blue to some flames…#fire.

So, the gloves look good but do they perform?  To make it easier, let me break down each glove individually.

  • Synthetic– The synthetic glove is the most traditional feeling glove in theBender lineup.  The glove features a Cabretta Palm w/Reinforced Patch.  Additionally, the glove breathes very well because of the synthetic inserts.  I was very impressed with the feel of the glove as well as the performance.  I recently rocked this bad boy in 40 degree weather and also back in Orlando, where we played a round in 70 degree weather.  Both times the glove performed well – a real gamer.
  • Spandex– The spandex glove was very intriguing.  The spandex back of the glove allows for the edgy designs.  The back of the glove is complete spandex which enables more movement and some added comfortability that you don’t get in a traditional glove.  Similar to the synthetic glove, the spandex glove features a Cabretta Palm w/Reinforced Patch.  I am excited for the weather to finally warm up, because the spandex back will allow for some extra breathability. That will definitely be welcomed during the summer months.  Last weekend, I decided to rock this bad boy in 40 degree weather…chilly.

  • Mesh– The mesh glove performs similarly to the synthetic glove.  Breathable…with a Cabretta Palm w/Reinforced Patch.  While the spandex glove has a lot of give, the mesh is a little more taught.  With the mesh glove, you get breathability and a more traditional feel.

All and all, Bender Gloves produces a glove that performs.  With almost every color in the spectrum and designs that would make John Daly blush, I challenge you to find a glove that doesn’t fit your style.  All of the gloves clock in at under $20 dollars, which is a steal.

Bender gave us three gloves free of charge to try and do an honest review.
