Description
Leather gloves customized with thick rubber for extra reinforcement and anti-slip palms to increase friction when driving. To prevent the glove from sliding it is taped in place to the user’s forearm (shirt sleeve) with duct tape. Another way to modify the glove involves taping with sports tape, see related tip. Handball glue is applied to the glove.
