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

Played one song with these and the entire side ripped out of them, it was amazing. I've never seen anything so poorly made.

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 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.

          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

                I dont know what the hell all these people are talking about. They must not know how to put on/wear gloves. These are the best gloves on the market. I've had mine for over 6 months and had 0 problems, and I play every day, and I play hard. After these eventually fade and start to rip, I am definatly getting another pair, becuase I could not go on without these.

                I think these are excellent gloves, however, after a mere 2 hours of playing using them, the same night I received them in the mail, the thumb blew out where the stitching was.

                Comments about Ahead Drummer's Gloves with Wrist Support:

                These gloves work really. I recently got a pair and noticed a difference right away. They help me grip the sticks better and they reduce shock that occurs from hitting cymbals and such. The sensitivity of the stick in your hands is reduced, but it is not that much. I would recommend these for fast, heavy players.

                Bought them, used them 3 times, and putting them on the 4th time the sweat band ripped away from the glove. Also, the webbing on the fingers also started to rip. I love to use them, but they need to be made with better quality!!

                I love using these gloves. It is a little harder to play with them than a without a glove but I use it anyway when practicing to prevent my fingers from slicing open from hours of play. I wouldn't use these at a gig, however, in order to be a little more finessed.

                Comments about Ahead Drummer's Gloves with Wrist Support:

                These gloves fit and feel amazing when you first put them on. I was concerned about my hands getting too hot and sweaty but, to my surprise my hands stayed relatively cool. The disappointing part is they only lasted TWO band practices. The stitching all along the bottom of the logo ripped all the way across while I was putting them on! Out of frustration I contacted Ahead and eventually ended up with a new pair, only to have the same thing happen to the new pair three weeks later. If you can get an endorsement with an endless supply of gloves go for it! Otherwise these can get VERY expensive VERY quick!
