    Recommended WK Gloves 2017

    Hi guys, I'm in the market for a new pair of wicketkeeper gloves and was wondering what other keepers recommend?

    I have always bought Puma in the past and they have served me well up until the EvoPower SE's I purchased last year, which were great to begin with but began to come away where the webbing joins the thumb, exposing the rubber thumb protector after just two games.

    I took these back to the shop where I bought them only to be told I mustn't be catching the ball properly (despite buying 5 or 6 pairs of Pumas from the same shop over the years, none of which I have experienced the same problem with). I'm a bit reluctant to go with Puma again for this reason, although I could be persuaded they were just a faulty pair if anyone offers a glittering review of their new range.

    All suggestions welcome!

    I've gone through 2 pairs, both Kookaburra 450s and had no problem with them at all. Never used any others though so I've got nothing to compare them with really.

    Thanks for the suggestion mate I did try on a pair of Kookaburras (think they were 1000s) but they felt a little bulky for my liking.

    In the end I went for last season's Adidas Elites, which were on sale for half price. On first impressions, they're really comfortable with a nice big catching area. If they hold up as well as I hope they will then I will definitely be buying Adidas again!
