I will preface my review by saying I am one of the biggest Mizuno golf proponents you will find. My entire bag is Mizuno, clubs, bag, etc and I own several additional sets of Mizuno irons. So, naturally when it came time to look for a new glove glove, I moved away from the Callaway Tour I had been using and to the RetroFlex.

Initially, I bought only one and used it only as a gamer. I really enjoyed the tacky grip and with its thin profile, it gave ultimate feel paired with Lamkin .580 grips and my butter-soft MP 60's. I even put in good range time with this glove and it lasted me 2.5 good months of use. So I decided to purchase 2 more of the RetroFlex's.

My second two pairs of RetroFlex's have been a nightmare. I alternated gloves, putting less than 10 rounds and 5 or 6 moderate range sessions on them together (not on each one). I am using he XL gloves when I could really use a large. However, both of them have ripped completely through the palm up to my pinky. The wear started from day one even. I had about a 1/4" hole in the palm.

I'm really frustrated with them, as they give me tons of feel and tackiness, but I can't afford to fork an additional $10 every 2 rounds of golf for a new glove. The only plausible explanation I have is I was playing with older grips with the 1st glove I had, and I re-gripped right before purchasing my new gloves. Understandably new grips are tacky and can accelerate glove wear, but they SHOULD NOT rip in that amount of rounds regardless of the grips being new.

My only additional complaint is the lack of a ballmarker. I can put up with that, as I have a repair tool with a ball marker, but for a price comparable to the FJ WeatherSof, it should include a ballmarker.

This glove would be PERFECT if Mizuno would simply add an extra patch or layer of cabretta in high-wear areas such as the palm and thumb areas. Until they do, I'm going to have to look elsewhere for a glove.

Going to contact them and see what I can do about getting replacements.

Great glove! Comfortable, functional, and of course, looks good! I've tried other gloves, but I'm sticking w/ these Mizunos. I'd like to try the Skintites. They say you get more "feel" w/ them. We'll see!

Great glove! Comfortable, functions well when hitting and of course, looks good! I've tried other gloves but I'm sticking to these Mizunos. I'd sure like to try the Skintites. I hear you have more "feel" w/ those. We'll see!
