Best gloves for pole spearing?
 
I've had my fair share of crappy gloves that end up leaving their grips on the spear, I'm going to get a poseidon spear after Christmas and since I'm getting a good spear I wasn't sure what kind of good gloves would be the best for spearing?
Thanks
Cole

Those gloves with the blue rubber and cotton backs you can buy at hardware stores or walmart. Only gloves I really use anymore.

I use the black ones now as the blue ones seem to melt and get on everything after few months.

I have always preferred the orange lobster gloves....They gave me great grip.

Unfortunately the blue ones have had tendency to melt all over my spear and boat. Which black ones were you referring to Ryfish ?

Home Depot sells nitrile dipped gloves for $1.99 that are rated for hypodermic needles (allegedly). They have a great tackiness to them that really grips well on the spear.

Target sells some gloves made by rapala that have a really nice tackiness to them. I haven't used them with a PS, but I plan to use them with my gun.

I know this is an old thread but I seem to run through gloves waaaay too fast when I go polespearing. The grip simply falls off on the gloves I have (and yes, I load my pole spears quite powerfully so the grip is often under alot of strain). The most recent ones I had were the hammerhead and ocean rhino gloves which seem to be the same model. They only survived like 3 dives each before the grip started deteriorating.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Thanks,
Carl

I tried a pair of dipped gloves and they fell apart after a couple times too. I do have a pair of atlas dipped gloved that I've yet to try. They are about the best ones out there, but I was using them for stone masonry work, not pole spearing. I'll try them out and check in here. I'm using a Crist pole spear and a Neritic lion fish spear.

I also have a pair of gloves from hex skin that work nice, but they slide on smooth aluminum, so not the best unless you've got a grooved, knurled or taped grip.

I use madgrip gloves from Home Depot or Amazon. They are work gloves with a thicker rubber coating than the nitrile dipped. I didn't like the cheaper ones because of the glue problems stated above. They will last about a year before the nicks and cuts from lobster and fish wear them out. $15-$20 depending on where you find them.

Hammerhead has red rubber coated and black non-coated dyneema gloves. Best I've found in years.

Think about Memphis gloves, here are two examples in link, Memphis gloves get re-branded with fancy names for added cost.

They have many choices and pretty good descriptions so you know what you are buying and videos.

The Ninja BNF Gloves are $3 a pair, Have a few pairs, if you trash them, just use a new pair...

Thanks for the info guys. I'm gonna try those thicker madgrip gloves from home depot and perhaps a pair of the memphis gloves. Will let you know how they hold up after a few dives.

Cheers
