  1. FLine S Line Glove

    Lovely looking glove mate, need to give F-Line a go in the future.

    Not at all mate go for it. I've still not had a chance to get the pics uploaded but will get it done soon.
  3. Behalt Double B Review

    Glove Make & Model : Behalt Double B Cut : Roll finger Latex : 4mm Pro Contact foam Internal Latex : No Wrist Strap : Latex Wrist Entry : Bandage Glove Body : 3+3 Embossed latex with Red and Black detail Finger Protection : None Price : £40 plus postage & packaging Where from : www.behaltgoalkeeping.com First Impressions First impressions were that they were a great looking glove. Nice design keeping it simple but effective with no gimmicks. I opted to drop to a size 9 in these as the website states that they do feel slightly bigger on our hands and the fit was superb. One of the best fitting gloves I have had. Very snug on the hand but not causing any discomfort to my fingers. I would say I’m normally a 9.5 but usually opted for a 10 as I preferred a slight bit of room in my gloves, but since having these on I now go for a more snug fit when buying my gloves. Straight out of the bag they were tacky, but I wouldn’t have used them right away without a pre wash. I gave them one pre wash and they felt fantastic and the grip really came to life. Use I’ve used these around 20 times now, they were initially bought in April 2017 so have been used on and off for almost a year now and the latex is still in great condition and is showing no signs of drying out. The majority of these uses were in matches, with a small handful (maybe 3-4 max) were in training. Right after that first pre wash the grip was outstanding. My first use actually brought me my first clean sheet of the season. Coincidence… Maybe. I have used the gloves in a mixture of wet and dry conditions, mostly on astro but with some uses being on grass. The grip has never let me down and I have had full confidence in the gloves no matter what the conditions were. One of the uses was on a grass pitch where the goalmouth was particularly sandy. This had no effect on the gloves whatsoever and they are still going strong. I would still have the confidence to wear these in a match to date. Due to dropping a size and the gloves having a snugger feel to them, it has changed my view on how a glove should fit and like mentioned before, I now like my gloves to be snug rather than roomy. This has given me a really natural feel on the ball and I think that this had really improved my handling having a glove that fits better. The 4mm palm gives great shock absorption but like mentioned, still allows a very natural feel on the ball. These have been used on and off for a year now and I still carry them in my match day bag to date. The durability on them has been excellent considering most games have been on astro. Ratings (out of 10) Looks 8.5 Fit 9 (I’ve given this rating as it is stated on the website they are large fitting and by following this have personally found it the best fitting glove I’ve had in a long time) Build Quality 8.5 Dry Grip 9 Wet Grip 8.5 Durability 8.5 Overall 8.6 Conclusion I have thoroughly enjoyed using these gloves and still do a year down the line. I would have no issues getting these out of the bag to use in a match day. I have been really impressed with the build quality and loved the fit of the gloves, which has completely changed my outlook on how I like my gloves to fit. Performance wise these have never let me down, even in the most challenging wet conditions and also in unnaturally sandy conditions. I would definitely recommend these gloves to anyone. Pictures Pictures will be added once I get them uploaded to Photobucket.
  4. How can we make GT better for you?

    what about an area for brand owners to post discount codes and promotions for members to use? And also for anyone who knows any discount codes or good deals from online retailers?

    May need to add them to the list of gloves to try. Looking forward to getting my Sells Aqua delivered though!
  6. Your Strengths & Weaknesses

    My strengths are my handling and my kicking and organise well. Struggle with cross balls as I'm not the tallest and don't have the biggest of springs and I'm not the greatest at throwing the ball. I have recently joined a new club that has goalkeeper specific training so feel myself improving with that and hopefully turn some of the weaknesses into strengths.
  7. Oneglove Geo Flux

    Great review. The other keeper at my club swears by these. has 3 pairs of them at the minute.
  8. Bucks Returns

    Didn't know you beforehand as I'm a relatively new member, but glad to see you got things sorted and back at it!
  9. Cant seem to see anything online. Everything is about him being released by Cardiff. Nothing on his twitter bio either.
  10. Best ground you've ever played at?

    Nice, can't compete with that unfortunately. Next best thing to that was playing on the 1st teams training pitch at Real Madrid training camp against the Real Madrid Legends team.
  11. Silly mistakes

    As Fraser says, need to try put the mistakes out of your mind. And work on them at training. My dad always told me concentration was key and some of the mistakes could be down to concentration. He used to tell me to commentate to myself throught the game. Especially when the balls in the other half. It certainly keeps your mind in the game.
  12. Best ground you've ever played at?

    I played a charity game at Ibrox. Team of my boyhood heroes so has to be that for me.
  13. What got you into goalkeeping?

    I used to play RM when i was younger. My dad was always a keeper and used to coach at our team. One week the keeper got sent off and gave away a penalty. I was volounteered to go in goals. Saved the pen and the rest is history.

    I think i know where your coming from. I've never heard of it done before mind you. If ive not used goleves for a while sometimes ive found the thumb or fingers of the gloves have stuck together whilst in storage. Suppose this is a good idea to help prevent it.
