    Your really tempting me about "investing" in these gloves lol Thing is with KA, they have awesome sales and seem to hold alot of gloves on inventory so have lots of sizes left when the sales hit. I may take a punt and hope they have a flash sale and I can pick up a few pairs.

    I think KA are releasing a new glove this week aswell, a V2 of the Lite model. The wrist entry looks to have been improved from the 1st model. The glove looks really nice, but it a simple Neg cut which doesn't excite me much.
  3. Kaliaaer XLR8AER

    They sound promising! Personally i'm glad they feel bulky. The Lite version IMO just dont offer enough stopping power, especially around the wrist area. I got an email from KA stating that they have a restock in all colors so may buy a couple of pairs.

    They look really nice! Do they fit OK on the fingers without the internal silicone?
  5. Kaliaaer XLR8AER

    Its not the end of the world, but annoying enough for me to notice when putting the gloves on. Have you used the other KA gloves you bought? The orange pair. How do they feel compared the light version?

    Quick update on this glove. Have used them in around 4 more games and I still really like them. The latex still grips really well, the durability is decent! Still not 100% sold on the wrist area, I don't have to adjust during a game, but due to its construction I don't feel like it offers the greatest support. Having retired from 11aside last year i'm only playing 7's so folk are shooting from much closer and with much more frequency, for this reason i'd prefer if the glove had a little more stopping power. One annoying thing I've noticed is that the lining on the back hand has partially separated from the body of the glove, which will prob cause an issue down the line. I honestly believe its due to cut and the internal latex. After wearing these during a game they are really really hard to take off (The combination of warm hands and the silicone gel inside make them stick like glue), I think the friction of this has caused the lining to pull away from the backhand itself. I think i'm going to buy another pair of gloves from KA which feature this cut, but i'll opt for the more traditional ones with a proper wrist strap, no internal silicone and what looks a thicker backhand.

    It was a poor move by KA. They never mentioned anything about these new models following on so closely to the original lite. I used them again for the 5th time last night, they still fit fairly tight but i'm noticing because of the thin backing they don't have much stopping power and cushioning. I've been struggling to catch hard driven shots as it stings and feels a bit slappy.

    Nice! Seriously tempted to pick up a pair. KA are normally fairly generous when they have sales so Might just hold off and finish using the current gloves I have in rotation. Does the cut still feel decent? Feels great with the internal latex but does it feel lose and oversized without it?
  9. Kaliaaer XLR8AER

    Wow they look really nice. Have to say, KA dont do a great job with the photo's of their gloves. The pictures on the website never do them justice, every pair i've owned look so much better in person. How is the wrist strap on these bad boys? Is it elasticated like the One Glove's wrist straps or a simple strap like most gloves. May have to pull the trigger on the volt yellow pair. Always loved the look of Volt yellow gloves.

    I think with a normal strap and backhand the most recent versions will be better. None of them come with the internal latex so will feel a little loser I think. I've been loving the cut so far, really feel the difference when parrying or stretching for a shot.
  11. Kaliaaer XLR8AER

    Yes. The new models have a different wrist strap which looks better. They have already sold out of size 9 in the black and white gloves so i`ll hold off. Not a fan of the volt green and orange versions.

    Some serious investment on the pope gloves. Hope the owner is giving you a special discount lol
  13. Kaliaaer XLR8AER

    Going to give these a run out this evening. It`s really sunny and dry here today so I`m hoping the contact latex will work well. On a side note, I see KA have released a new range featuring this cut, they look really decent, glad they have a more traditional strap compared to this, non feature the internal latex so will be interesting if they fit as tight and secure on the fingers as these do.

    They look really nice. I dont get this trend with new gloves having detachable straps. I dont know any keeper who doesn't like a secure wrist section of a glove. Has to be a gimmick. Puma tried this years back and I dont think they sold well at all.

    Im going to write this now whilst still fresh in my mind. Decided on these for a big game tonight in our 7aside league. Gave them a small rinse down after taking off the plastic film. Im impressed! firstly the wrist strap. After some slight adjusting felt really nice. To my surprise I didn't adjust it once during a pretty busy game. Normally i'm the type of keeper who is always fiddling with the wrist but I didn't with these. They were not mega tight but felt snug and secure. The cut was a pleasure to use! As bucks said above, the internal silicone is really really nice and did a great job keeping the glove tight and secure to my hand. Made some really decent catches from crosses and throws with no spillage or needing to readjust my hands. The extension cut come into play with a smart dive about mid height to my right, got some strong fingers to it and genuinely felt as if the rigid structure & extra length on the tips helped push the ball far around the post. I still think the gloves could do with some work. Firstly i'd make the wrist strap a more stretchy material which would result in less bunching and a tighter fit. Id also look at maybe making the velcro tab larger as it's currently quite small and after a few uses it may struggle to stick. Overall i'm really happy. Washed them straight after so will be interested to see if they stretch out and become too baggy after a few more uses.
