No I didn't know about the different sizes. I have no idea which size these were..
Hmmm, the metal buckles sounds good. I guess I'd also wear gloves as it's cold here in the Western Cape of South Africa - I haven't had the chance to test them as our season experienced some drought. I felt that just by wearing them it felt like they may come off in a beatdown.
Foam, excellent idea! Thanks for that!! I was thinking of putting something under the fingers, maybe a carefully layed out strip of expoxy glue so that the fingers have something to grip on to too.
Many thanks for the tips, I actually have no hand paddling experience, yet. So I do appreciate it. I think I'll add your comments to that page if you don't mind. I can mention your name (surname?) or just keep it anonymous if you wish.
Have a super weekend,
