I started using gloves to support my wrists, which would really be hurting after practice and gigs. These are the only gloves out there that provide real wrist support. Using them helped reduce my wrist pain, partly because of the support, partly because I had been gripping the sticks too tightly. These allow you to loosen your grip a bit on the sticks, reducing fatigue. The quality of the leather is top-notch, but be warned, there can be manufacturing imperfections. Ahead would be advised that at this high of a price point, quality control should rock! I've had pairs that split in a single practice, but on the other hand, I've had my current pair for four months with no issues (let's hope this is a trend).
Advice: get a tight fit, but not TOO tight, and when you store them after a practice, straighten them and neatly put them back in the bag (don't air-dry them, this will make them harden). I've found this greatly improves the life of the gloves.
Bottom Line: Unless you see gloves as a necessity, save your money for heads and sticks. If you need gloves, I'd recommend these to lessen overall wrist fatigue

Comments about Ahead Drummer's Gloves with Wrist Support:

I have old hands to go along with my old body. These gloves have helped with the shock of hitting and also help with grip. They are thin and comfortable but they do wear out fast if you play hard like me.

    These gloves have proven themselves to me. They are awesome. when I first got them I was worried about them busting out at the seams but they have stood the test of time. They give me great grip with my ahead sticks.

    Way too small - not sure I can use them.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Ahead Drummer's Gloves with Wrist Support:

      These are so small (largest offered) that I'm not even sure I can use them. As I'm getting older, blisters seem to come more easily - was hoping these might help. I'll update after next practice.

      Thes SUCK

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Ahead Drummer's Gloves with Wrist Support:

      These gloves absoloutly suck. I got them for christmas because I was lookin for some gloves to help improve grip and help prevent blisters but within week of using them they lost their grip and i had more grip drumming without them and they are not very durable at all. The silver part around the knuckles started to shred very quickly. I would highly suggest going with something else. I just ordered a pair on Mizuno Techfire batting gloves. What make ahead gloves drumming gloves anyway? terrible, dont buy them
