Dunlop Uppercut Racquetball Glove

Comments: Ordered based on the comments below along with Head Ballistic and ProKennex Pure 1.  Tight on the hands but like most gloves that fit snugly, you don't notice it once play starts.  I liked the glove, but unfortunately, after 3 games a hole developed at the base of my pinky near the letter "U".  Too bad because it's a very well priced glove for kangaroo leather.  RbW was kind enough to replace. I eventually ordered more of the Head Ballistic.

Comments: Dear Anon from NC, The Max Tack Pro is not washable. It will bleed black dye endlessly till kingdom come and lose its stickiness in the process. Uppercut doesn't have this problem; it doesn't bleed and doesn't make the white Head Hydrosorb grip all black like Max Tack Pro did. The Upper Cut is so amazing! Still so sticky still!  I am still playing with my first Upper Cut gloves nearly a year ago and there are no tears still. It is the same stickiness and texture the day I got them and I play 10 tournaments a year. I am starting to think this glove lasts forever! I am not sure how they are going to make any profit on this glove because it never wears out. Amazing! This glove is truly a gem, what a discovery!

Comments: The glove is a great replacement of the Ektelon Max Tack Pro gloves, actually better. Great glove with a rubber grip and excellent protection for those diving types. Durability is also great, still waiting to see how long the sticky grip lasts. These gloves are also washable, just as the Ektelon Max Tack Pros were.

Comments: I need the stickiest glove on the market for my style. I wanted to add that the old Maxtack Pro had the same black leather (it seemed) as the Dunlop Uppercut, but the Maxtack leaked all over the place making my leather wraps all black causing the grip to lose its stickiness and tearing the grips. I don't have this problem anymore with the Dunlop Uppercut at all. I have been using the same Head Hydrosorb grip now (the best leather grip on the market by far; I've tried them all) for months now, not having to change at all. It really is like night and day. I have commented on the problems with the new Maxtack Pro under the Maxtack Pro glove comments. So I highly recommend the Dunlop Uppercut with the Head Hydrosorb grip. You know you have a good combination when you don't even have to think about the grip or the glove anymore. You play 5 games and when you are done you realized you didn't think about them even once.

Comments: I received the Python Super Tack and Dunlop Upper Cut today. The Python was cheap goat skin and moved around in my hand too much (I expected that considering it was goat skin). It will tear easily. It was not particularly sticky either so the manager who recommended it to replace the Maxtack was sorely mistaken. But the Dunlop Upper Cut is amazing. It fits my hand very nicely and snuggly (the fingertips of the glove stay tight to my fingertips) and is stickier than Maxtack to my surprise. The only question for me that remains is because the Upper Cut it Kangaroo skin which glove I would prefer, the Upper Cut or the Head Ballistic because it too is Kangaroo. The Upper Cut is truly an awesome glove what I have been searching for. The woman I spoke to online for my order confirmed that the Kangaroo skin is the best and goat skin is cheap, tearing easily which I concur.
