Do any of the Pope models come with spines?

Hi Colm,

The Captor Pure in both the original Pink colourway and a newer White and Black colourway can be bought with Spines.

Because you bumped this thread I used these again today. Still very decent gloves, first time I have worn them in almost 6 months too.

18th November to be precise.

Agreed Bucks, excellent gloves and if looked after the latex holds up excellent. Just a nice solid grip.

I stopped using them as I was using them in a warm up and I literally dropped every shot and cross, this was just after the latex turned pink and I started using Adidas at the time. I then wore them in a Surrey Cup game and had a bit of a mare and never wore them after that until yesterday. Grip was fine so I must have just had an off day when I used them in that warm up.

Not only is the grip solid but the durability is remarkable too.

Would you say these are worth a punt then? I'm a little wary paying that much for a small brand. Maybe next time they have a sale I'll dip my toe. 

Well I've just bought 3 more pairs for next season and I still have one unused pair, the pair I have worn a few times and the first pair I got that are a bit on the Small side. So yes I'd definitely recommend the gloves.

I know the company are frowned upon on GT but the product is very decent.

I don't know the exact ins and outs as I haven't seen what happened etc but I was told there was a disagreement between a GT competition winner and Christoph the Company owner and he may have said something inappropriate (racist).

I don't know what it is about these gloves, but I just keep going back to them. Been loving the Kaliaaers but had a few off weeks so decided to give some Seismics a go today, first session of training I was awful so I switched to these and I was just holding everything. The grip is so true on them  I don't know what it is about them, I am starting to think because they are so slimline I get on with them better. The Seismic and Kaliaaer gloves as good as they are, are quite bulky on hand.

Seriously still recommend Pope's gloves if anyone wants to try them. Shame they only make size 9 upwards now, luckily I stocked up on a few pairs of these to keep me going for the foreseeable.

Funny you mention this Brand. They are starting to pump out some seriously good looking gloves! I really want to give them a go, but they are fairly expensive for an independent.

I love the look of these just note sure if I can justify spending the money on a simple pair of negative gloves with a contact latex palm.

I want the gloves Alex Nübel wore for Germany in the European U21 Championships. 😍😍😍

They are a really good looking glove! Be interesting how long he stays with Pope's for. If he gets the long anticipated move to Bayern as Neuers eventual replacement then I'm sure Adidas will make sure he is one of their athletes

And I am sure Adidas will throw millions at him more than Pope's could ever afford. I think the brand is decent, I guess they just need to get a bit more out there, but Germany is probably the worst place they could be from as effectively four of the goalkeeping powerhouses in Adidas, Reusch, Uhlsport and Puma are from there and have probably wrapped up all the top pros and up coming youth keepers. Add in to that I believe a lot of Nike gloves are made in Germany too, it's a very tough market to break.

One of the brands other top flight keepers last season Bredlow of Nürnberg jumped ship to Uhlsport midseason and I tell you now having used both brands gloves last season that is almost certainly due to £££ than glove quality. The only one of the top brands I would say from personal experience is "better" is Reusch who make phenomenal gloves, just a shame they are so damn expensive.

But then I do just seem to love flat palm gloves these days and Reusch are definitely the masters of FP (these are also excellent even if they are a sort of Flat / Neg hybrid).

I totally agree. There isn't much difference in Quality between the big brands and the independents anymore. Especially when you take into consideration the cost of the 'Big Brand' gloves now days. 

Doesn't make sense for me to buy 1 pair of Uhlsport when I can get a pair of One Glove gloves, a pair of KA's and maybe even a pair of F-Line for the same price.

Also I was going to ask. Have you ever used PROGK? I love the look of their Hybrid cut Aqua glove;

But i'm not sure 3.5mm palm will provide enough stopping power

I haven't. I did consider giving them a try a few years back as my local team is AFC Wimbledon and at the time all of their keepers were wearing them, but when I went to order some they didn't have my size so I never ended up bothering.

Well that didn't take long did it?

Nübel pictured playing for Schalke yesterday against Drochtersen / Assel in the new Adidas Predator Hybrid's. Obviously now he is Schalke number one and captain Adidas see him as "valuable".

Did not take long at all! Guess with the money the big brands can throw around, makes it nigh on impossible for the likes of Pope's to compete. 

Wish Pope's were a little cheaper, they are considerably more than the likes of the One Glove and KA etc. Would you say they are any better?

I would say the grip is a lot better on the Pope's personally. And they are just as durable.

Size 7.5 turned up today... Just pre washing them hopefully for tomorrow, the size is so much better. A little room on some fingers but just a little more comfortable than the 7s.

The gloves in the pictures below are the exact pair of gloves in this post, and that I wore for the first time on the 23rd September last year. Barely a mark on them. The gash in the left thumb is from last week when one of our cats got hold of the glove. 😒🐱

I have ordered 4 more pairs since these and still not had to use them because this pair still do the job.

I see Christoph Nowak has been out in the press criticising Nübel for the way he has left the brand for Adidas.

What I also noticed was his gloves from Saturday's game which to me look like a cross of a Fingertip / VG3 glove rather than the regular Adidad Predator Hybrid.

Thats a good spot! I think alot of the pro's use slightly altered versions of the hybrid. Kevin Trapp at Frankfurt looks to be different from the retail version. 

Would be interested to see how much $$ a company like adidas pay their goalkeepers. I bet De Gea, Neuer and Ter Stegen have pretty lucrative contracts. 

I remember Adam Sells talking about this on how his firm cannot compete with the likes of Adidas and Nike for $$ but offer their goalkeepers a much more hands-on and closer relationship than the big firms can offer.
