hi uptider 4-10, i've had 2 pairs of Ron T's and find they're great . The reason for this is bacause i've got small hands and with other neo's my finger's tend to flap around in side . With neo i find if it slack or loose it doesn't keep you warm . I may be wrong but thats my exp . Hope thats some help?

Uptider,

As an alternative, try you're nearest Dive shop. I also SCUBA dive and use various gloves dependant upon te sea temp. You can get quite thin gloves that have a titanium lining that whilst are thin, keep your hands nice and warn. They tend to be thinner and less bulky that some neoprene and offer better insulaton. You also get the chance to try different types if you nip in to a shop. What area do you live in? I may know of a Dive shop nearbye.

Rob,
You won't go far wrong with them, i've owned a pair of R.T. artics and they're great. I've got hands like a bunch of nanas and they fit no probs.

I find the RT power glovoes good, but like most neoprene gloves they really could do with a bit of fleece insulation. When they get wet they can get pretty cold to be honest, and anyone who has tried them will be able to agree. The hands themselves dont generate enough heat to be able to keep the wet neoprene warm, thats the problem. They are good though, I've had mine for over 2 years now and they are still alive.

I have a pair which are finger less and a thumb with pieces which you can hook over or off.

On the back of the glove is a mitt section which you can bring over the fingers if needed.

All sounds a bit complicated but they do work very well, baiting and casting is not a problem.

These gloves/mitts sound more like it. (I have tried neoprene gloves in SCUBA diving and they were absolutely useless. Always used mitts. Granted SCUBA is more extreme than fishing, but as posted earlier, if your hands get wet and it is cold/windy, they do not generate enough heat to keep warm.

Who makes these glove/mitt combination?

Thanks
