We weren't sure about the Truegrip New Zealand Possum Leather Golf Gloves - were they as good as we'd been told they were? The answer was to get our customers to try them out.
So in October 2007 we mailed out a Truegrip glove to three of our customers, all avid golfers. They were asked to give their honest opinion on the possum leather gloves, good or bad.
Here's the first testimonial received:
As promised, I have used the golf glove that you sent and now have my evaluation for you. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to ask and I shall answer to the best of my ability.
Upon receiving the Truegrip Possum Leather Golf Glove, my first job, being a former garment manager, was to check the construction of the glove. Each piece of the glove was cut to perfection. There are no ragged edges and the glove has very clean lines. All pieces are double-needle stitched together in a very precise fashion, once again providing good clean lines. The inside elastic is great and very soft to the touch. The Velcro closure provides for a proper fit without any tightness. I give the construction of the Truegrip Golf Glove a Very Good rating.
My first golf experience with the glove was at the Driving Range. The glove was very comfortable, and the thinness and flexibility made the grip superb. At no point did my hand slide on the golf club, thus helping to keep my hands in proper position. Our weather has been very hot and the glove did not cause my hand to sweat or be uncomfortable at any time. Good ventilation is a key point.
Now it was time to put the glove to the real test. The Truegrip glove became a part of every golf game I played since receiving it. It is soft, smooth, and fits so well the I found I would forget that I was actually wearing a glove! Throughout my golf games, I found that my grip remained firm and true, thus helping my shots be less apt to veer off target. The glove tucked away neatly in my golf bag and remained as soft as the day it arrived. At no time did I reach for this glove and find it stiff, tight, or changed in any way. When they say, It fits like a glove, this one truly does. My golf game improved and Id like to give some credit to Truegrip!
This past weekend my golf partner and I ventured out for a cold, wet round of golf. The morning was cold at 10 A.M. and there were fairly strong winds. It had rained for a few days so the course was a bit wet. My hand never slipped on my club at all. It was time for one last big test. There is a stream that runs along one of the greens and I decided to purposely put my hand and the glove in the cold stream water. I put the wet glove into my golf bag, finished the game and went home. At that point I removed the glove and allowed it to air dry for about a day. The Truegrip glove returned to its original conditionthe same perfect shape and fit, very soft, and pliable. The Velcro remained in fine condition and did not change shape or lose its grip. Yes, this glove has a great feel even after a dip in the stream!
I give this golf glove an A+ in all areas. The attached Paua shell ball marker is a real eye catcher and conversation piece.
Thank you for allowing me to test this glove and to be introduced to possum leather. It is really fantastic leather. You can be sure Ill purchase more of this glove.
