Hi Guys,

I'll be starting speedball at my first walk on and would like to get some gloves but I have a DM13 and the switch is annoying at the best of times for the ASA any recommendations from any dye/proto owners?

Thin gloves with padded back hand areas are usually the best shout, good trigger feel through them or fingerless on the 2 trigger digits

Thanks @GRIMLOCK yeah, the place I was playing at yesterday were selling some with plastic padding on the back but didn't think they would be too great and would restrict the mobility when trying to walk the trigger, any you would recommend?

I personally liked laysik gloves but am currently using a valken pair with gel on the backhand and they play fine

You probably saw this kind of glove with a plastic armour on the back of the hand:

They relate more to the motorcross origins of most of the original paintball clothing suppliers then the needs of paintball
Tough backs to the hand can help in the woods - but do would any decent glove
