  1. Oneglove Geo Blade Review

    Glove Make & Model : Oneglove Geo Blade Cut : NEW "Total Flare" Hybrid Cut (flat middle with flared roll finger outer fingers) Latex : 4mm Giga Internal Latex : No but they do have non slip silicone at the finger tips Wrist Strap : Latex with an elastic infused mid split section with window for personalization Wrist Entry : Bandage Glove Body : Neoprene 3D embossed backhand Finger Protection : Removeable Price : £37.99 plus postage & packaging Where from : https://www.theoneglove.com/goalkeeper-gloves-c3/geo-blade-goalkeeper-gloves-p137 Description from the Oneglove Site The GEO Blade is a truly feature packed all-rounder with an absolutely killer urban "shatter camo" design. Our superb Giga Grip latex ensures you have a reliable latex known for it's all-weather grip and durability (make sure you follow our care guide to extend the life of all your gloves!), while the removable finger save spines and internal non-slip silicone help keep your fingers locked and secure. Not a finger save kind of keeper? Simply slip out the spines in seconds through a hidden easy-access pouch. All the trademark GEO features are here including stunning 3D embossing, a double wrapped thumb and the popular MidSplit™ strap that provides the best of both worlds, whether you're a fan of latex or elasticated straps. The Blade also sees the debut of our brand new "Total Flare" hybrid cut which combines flat and flared outer roll fingers - this achieves a more true and higher latex coverage on key touch points in middle of the ball, while the flared outer fingers give that larger spread where there is naturally less of the ball to grip. First Impressions Another stunner from Oneglove with the awesome 3D embossing on the backhand which I would say is firmly a Oneglove trademark despite others now attempting to copy it, it is clearly another glove that they have put a lot of time and effort into. The dark shatter Camo design is a winner on these for me. They are a true to size fitting glove with spines in, even with them out I would say they are true too size, obviously a tad roomier but nothing major. It is another extremely comfortable glove that oozes quality. The mid split strap again a feature that oneglove use gives a great secure fit on the wrist without the need for constant re adjustment. The giga latex did feel slightly powdery so they were given the usual pre wash before using them for the first time. Use I have used these around 10 times now, they have been used in both wet and dry on grass and astro. Using these I felt very confident in them in the dry but the grip did fade slightly in the extreme wet which you would expect still good but not as confidence inspiring as in the dry, they were fine in the damp. The 4mm foam gives excellent shock absorption without sacrificing feel when catching. Durabilty has been very good as I was expecting based on my previous experiences with the other gloves in the range, barely a mark on them. I am amazed that as a brand they sell enough gloves as they are extremely durable lol. Ratings (out of 10) Looks = 8 Fit – 8 Build Quality - 9 Dry Grip - 8 Wet Grip - 7 Durability – 8.5 Overall - 8 Conclusion Another really good glove from the Oneglove Co which gives good grip, great durability, great comfort and along with great looks, I’d definitely recommend them Pictures Link to my photobucket album of the pictures of these http://s194.photobucket.com/user/superstar_tradesmanp100/library/oneglove geo blade
  2. ONEGLOVE GEO MCG REVIEW

    Strange, I don't know of anyone thats had any issues with that
  3. Contacts Required

    I wear contacts mate, blind as a bat without them. I just get the monthly disposable ones from spec savers. The optician will keep you right
  4. Oneglove Geo Flux

    Not sure if it's the same latex as the AQ3 but yes they have released a roll finger version

    They are superb in the wet and dry these
  6. Glove Make & Model : Uhlsport Elliminator Supergrip HN Cut : Negative cut with wrapped index and pinky Latex : 4mm Supergrip Internal Latex : no Wrist Strap : wrap around elastic/ latex Wrist Entry : Neoprene / Easy Entry Glove Body : Neoprene Finger Protection : none Price :rrp £110 Where from : Any good online retailer such as www.great-save.com etc First Impressions These look great out the bag, the yellow and black colourway really works along with the yellow and black latex that really pops on these. Latex wise I would be happy to just dampen and play with them as they are insanely tacky but they were given a pre wash anyway. After the pre wash you really feel the Supergrip come to life, they literally stick to just about anything. Fit wise they do run a little large so depending on how you like your gloves to fit you may wish to drop half a size to a full size on them. Use These have been used around 10 times on a mixture of grass and astro in games and training. The grip is superb in the dry, there is nothing else that can match it, it reminds me of the old APG in terms of dry grip. In the wet however is another story, it’s average at best which for a £110 glove is just unacceptable in my opinion, it’s a real shame as if the grip level in the wet matched the dry there would be no need to buy any other brand/ glove. The 4mm latex gives the right mix between shock absorption and feel on the ball. Durability on the palm front has been good enough, the usual wear and tear points on the palm from the rubber crumb and my poor technique. It’s disappointing the level of difference grip wise is so different from wet to dry is so vast in these as I’d expect better from Uhlsport as a brand and at the price they are pitching them at. Ratings (out of 10) Looks - 8 Fit – 7.5 Build Quality – 7.5 Dry Grip – 10 (I’d give them 20 if I could) Wet Grip – 5 Durability - 7 Overall 7.5 (The dry grip really brings this up) Conclusion To sum up these I would say the dry grip really is out of this world but the wet grip really lets them down, Uhlsport gloves are in my opinion the bench mark for the industry but these fall well short of the standard I would expect for the brand and the price of them. I wouldn’t buy them again. If you want an uhlsport glove I’d buy anything with absolutgrip for an all rounder or aquasoft for wet weather Pictures Link to photo bucket album http://s194.photobucket.com/user/superstar_tradesmanp100/library/Uhlsport Elliminator Supergrip
  7. Oneglove Geo Flux

    OneGlove GEO Flux Glove Make & Model : Oneglove Geo Flux Cut : Negative cut Latex : 4mm Aqua Latex Internal Latex : No Wrist Strap : Latex with an elastic infused section with window for personalization Wrist Entry : Bandage Glove Body : Micromesh, 3D embossed backhand Finger Protection : Removeable Price : £34.99 plus postage & packaging Where from : https://www.theoneglove.com First Impressions Another stunner from Oneglove with the awesome 3D embossing on the backhand, another glove that they have put a lot of time and effort into, the yellow and green colourway is cracking on these. They are a true to size fitting glove (slightly tight for me with the spines in but I never use them anyway) with the negative cut on these conforming to the hand perfectly. Another extremely comfortable glove that oozes quality. The aqua latex on these did feel a little powdery on them so I gave them my usual pre wash and they were good to go. Use I have used these around 8 or 9 times now, they have been used in both wet and dry on grass and astro. Using these I felt very confident even in the worst of conditions, the aqua latex on these is very very good. The 4mm foam gives excellent shock absorption without sacrificing feel when catching. Durabilty has been very good as again I was expecting based on my previous experiences with the other gloves I have used from oneglove, barely a mark on them, even after being used on dry indoor astro which can be very hard on gloves. Ratings (out of 10) Looks = 8 Fit – 8.5 (purely as they would be a bit tight if I had to use the spines) Build Quality - 9 Dry Grip - 9 Wet Grip – 8.5 Durability – 9 Overall - 8.67 Conclusion Another stormer from oneglove, they just seem to be in the zone with this range. I have yet to have a bad experience with any of their gloves. Get on them folks especially as we are now coming into the bad weather.

  8. J19 Hybrid Review

    Glove Make & Model : J19 HYBRID CUT MG Cut : HYBRID CUT WITH WRAP OVER TIPS ON INDEX & PINKY Latex : 4mm PROFESSIONAL MEGA GRIP Internal Latex : NO Wrist Strap : ELASTIC STRETCH STRAP WITH WINDOW FOR PERSONALISATION Wrist Entry : BANDAGE Glove Body : 3D MESH Finger Protection : NONE Price : £32 plus postage & packaging Where from : http://www.j19goalkeeping.com First Impressions I wasn’t a big fan of the first offering from J19 but these have really stepped it up a level, a striking design with a simple yet stylish logo on the backhand along with the 3D mesh really makes these gloves pop in my opinion. Fit wise they are quite a loose fitting glove, if getting again I would be tempted to drop a size, certainly if you are normally a half size in other gloves definitely go down not up in size. They feel extremely well made and the stretch strap is the perfect length and gives a nice secure fit, I never felt myself having to re adjust these when on. Out the packet the latex feels good to go, not powdery like you get with some latex’s but never the less they got my usual quite run through the machine to give them a pre wash. Use I have used these 10 times in all now, they have been used on dry astro, wet astro, muddy grass in matches & training. I have to say that when I first heard they were mega grip I wasn’t expecting great things in all honesty but how wrong was I?? They have given great grip no matter the conditions, this definitely confirms to me that sometimes in the past some factories/ brands maybe haven’t been quite truthful about the latex on their gloves. The 4mm foam gives excellent shock absorption without sacrificing feel. Durabilty has been very good, for having had 10 uses on mainly astro they are holding up very well. Can’t fault the build quality of these at all, no popped stitches or fading etc. As I have said before they are extremely comfortable on the hand and are a lovely glove to use. Ratings (out of 10) Looks = 8 Fit – 7.5 just due to being slightly roomy Build Quality - 9 Dry Grip – 8.5 Wet Grip - 8 Durability – 8.5 Overall - 8.25 Conclusion Really happy with these and glad to see a brand run by a genuine good guy in Jamie Ewings improving and evolving. As I say these have been a lot better than I expected them to be so I would highly recommend giving them a go.

  9. Bucks Returns

    Great to see you back Bucks, hope everything off the field is sorted too. It's like riding a bike, you'll get back into it mate
  10. I'm stressed about school

    Can you not speak to your teachers about this? What about your parents? With the science lab can you not speak to your class mates and see what they did?
  11. Do you have a Pregame routine?

    On a game day (2pm ko)I get up about 8am, have porridge or weetabix and fruit juice. Then around 10 am I'll have some scrambled egg on toast, pre match poo about 11am then at 12pm on way to game I'll have either an energy gel or banana and sports drink
  12. Onesport Shield Gloves (paid for)

    Another great review mate, shaming me I have about 4 I need to write up lol

    I keep the plastic wrap that gloves come in and put that between the thumb and palm so that doesn't happen
