  1. One glove GEO ARCWOLF

    Not used those specific ones but have used another model with the same latex, you wont be disappointed
  2. KA Teknik Negs

    KA Teknik Negs Glove Make & Model : KA Teknik Negative Cut Cut : Negative Cut with Wrap Over Thumb Latex : 4mm Teknik Latex Palm Internal Latex : No Wrist Strap : Latex with window for personalisation Wrist Entry : Elasticated Bandage Glove Body : Micromesh with 3mm supersoft latex backhand Finger Protection : None Price : from £32 plus postage & packaging depending on size Where from : https://www.kagoalkeeping.co.uk/ka-goalkeeper-gloves-c1/teknik-neg-goalkeeper-gloves-p59 Description from KA site The Teknik Neg is an elite level Negative Cut Goalkeeper Glove. Featuring a newly developed 4mm Teknik latex palm this model creates exceptional grip, catching security, and shock absorption. The Teknik Latex is so tacky it is sealed under a protective film, once removed this leaves a really adhesive catching surface from the first use. The backhand of this model is a 3mm supersoft latex creating a really comfortable fit and feel, with an ergonomically designed PunchZone aiding traction and direction when punching. The Teknik Neg is a Negative Cut glove, which means the palm latex is internally stitched creating a tighter, more streamlined fit. If you need more information on different glove cuts, please Click Here to view our Glove Cut Guide. The thumb of the Teknik Neg wraps over from palm to backhand creating more latex to ball contact, enhancing catching security. The elasticated wrist bandage of the Teknik Neg ensures perfect closure, fit and comfort. As with all our gloves the Teknik Neg can be personalized just like the pros with your Name, Nickname or Initials. First Impressions Every range from KA has been an improvement on the last and since joining forces with Kaliaaer you can really see a difference again and certain aspects of design being incorporated into the KA lines, in my opinion these are a really striking glove, quite minimalist but with a hint of colour in the right places. These feel extremely comfortable on the hand, they are well made with quality materials. Size wise I went up a full size in these as I had found previous negs from KA just to be a little snug for me but I know others who have stayed with their normal size and find them comfortable, just depends how you like your gloves to fit. Out the bag when the film had been peeled off they felt good to go. Use I have been using these for about 5/6 weeks now at least twice a week mainly on astro in small sided games but they have had a couple of outings on grass in 11’s as well. They have been used in both wet and dry conditions with no real noticeable difference in performance when wet. They are a very confidence inspiring glove that give great shock absorption without sacrificing the feel for the ball. The durability has blown me away on these, as I say these have been mainly used on Astro and they are still in superb condition, I have been using another brand of gloves along side these for a few weeks, maybe 3 and youd think they were the ones that I had used for longer when compared with these. I really cannot fault these at all and as a few folk that I have recommended this latex too will know why I swear by these. Ratings (out of 10) Looks 9 Fit 8(just due to me going up a size) Build Quality 9 Dry Grip 9 Wet Grip 8 Durability 9 Overall 8.67 Conclusion I really do swear by KA, the way Kenny and Greg go about their business has to be applauded, they strive to put out the best product for extreme value for money, these are a top top glove and I have no hesitation on recommending them Pictures Link to my photobucket album of how these look now http://s194.photobucket.com/user/superstar_tradesmanp100/library/KA Teknik Negs
  3. OneGlove GEO Typhoon Review Glove Make & Model : GEO Typhoon Goalkeeper Gloves Cut : Negative Latex : 4mm Black Contact Internal Latex : No Wrist Strap : Latex with an elastic mid split infused section with window for personalization Wrist Entry : Bandage Glove Body : Neoprene Finger Protection : Removeable with lifetime warranty on the spines Price : £37.99 plus postage & packaging Where from : https://www.theoneglove.com/goalkeeper-gloves-c3/geo-typhoon-goalkeeper-gloves-p146 Description from Oneglove Features 4mm black pro Contact latex Pre-curved Negative Cut MidSplit® strap Removable finger save spines with velcro easy-access Incredibly comfortable neoprene lining Stunning 3D embossed backhand Double-wrapped thumb Lifetime finger-spine warranty - your spines replaced for free Aqua green fade colour way Description Inspired by the best-selling GEO Tempest, the GEO Typhoon updates the pro proven design and spec with a new aqua/green colour-way with slick black detailing. Our Contact latex ensures pro grade all-weather grip, while our unique MidSplit® strap and neoprene lining deliver the most optimal level of comfort on hand - an absolute must for any goalkeeper. The Typhoon utilises a negative cut palm which is a snug fitting style suited for those who like a more "true" feel of the ball, additionally this model comes with removable finger save spines accessible through a quick-release hidden pouch. Not a finger save fan? A few seconds and they're gone. First Impressions Another stunner from the current Oneglove range, it has to be one of my favourite glove designs on the market at the moment. This colourway works so well. They are a true to size glove without the spines in, with them in they are snug but not so snug I’d say to go up a size like you have to with some FP gloves. The black contact latex on these was good to go after just peeling the protective film off Use I have used these over a period of 6 or 7 weeks now 2 or 3 times a week, they have been used on dry astro, wet astro, muddy grass in matches & training. Using these I felt very confident even in the worst of weather/ conditions which once again for me debunks the myth that contact is poor in the wet. This in my opinion is the best coloured contact I have used. There is not a huge difference in the performance of the glove from dry to wet although they do need to be kept moist in the dry to get the best out them, it’s quite a thirsty latex which dries quickly so keep damping them during use. The 4mm foam gives the perfect balance shock absorption and feel on the ball. Durabilty has been out of this world compared to some other gloves I am using at the moment, Just your typical finger tip wear you get with negs and a few nicks and grazes caused but the good old astro and rubbish Scottish pitches. I can’t comment on the finger protection as I never use spines, just can’t get on with them at all. All in all a very comfortable glove that has been great to wear. Ratings (out of 10) Looks = 8.5 Fit - 8 Build Quality - 9 Dry Grip - 9 Wet Grip - 8 Durability – 9 Overall - 8.58 Conclusion Once again a true elite level glove for a bargain price, anyone still to try oneglove this would be a perfect glove to start with Pictures http://s194.photobucket.com/user/superstar_tradesmanp100/library/Oneglove Geo Typhoon

  10. Umbro elite latex

    It gets mixed reviews, I personally have found it a very good and solid latex in any conditions with very good durability
  11. Hi mate, yeah tbh the better pictures don't change anything for me, the big seam running across the base of the fingers would annoy me couple with the designs just not doing it either. Good luck but IMO these won't sell.
  12. tips

    Never eat yellow snow Always wipe front to back Broken pencils are pointless
  13. Horrible form and athleticism

    Sorry I'm not entirely sure what you are asking here? Athleticism is the physical qualities that are characteristic of athletes, such as strength, fitness, flexibility and agility. Basically every attribute you need to be a goalkeeper. If you are lacking this I suggest speaking to a physical trainer to co-ordinate a taylor made plan to help you improve it, working on the core, strength and plyo are all a good place to start though
