I received a pair of these as a gift recently and am very impressed. I've used other neoprene gloves in the past that work well, but they could not be used while surf casting braided line. These gloves have no issues with that task. I recently used them on the beach and noticed a few things right from the start. They fit very well, and enable me to have the dexterity needed to do everything I need to do while surf casting with the exception of tying knots (but to be fair I didn't bother trying). The strap on the outside of the gloves helps keep the velcro closure out of the way while casting or doing other tasks. The kevlar tipped thumb and index fingers performed flawlessly with casting braid. The only gripe I have is that these gloves are not as warm as other neoprene gloves I've used in the past, but this isn't that big of a deal if you ask me.
Pros:Handle braid very well
Good strap closure placement
Cons:Not as warm as other neoprene gloves I've used.
