    I would like to buy Kim a pair of watersport gloves, but I need a little input regarding brands, etc...... She borrowed a buddy of mine's gloves this summer for a weekend and she said it made all the difference in the world.

    my dad has these gloves that have a strap the runs to the middle and ring finger, so when you grip the tow rope, and makes your fingers curl, you can hold on and ski all day, very comfortable

    I have a pair of Connelly Sticky Fingers I use for skiing. I love them. Think they are about 40 bucks.

    I've owned these gloves for about 15 years and they have held up remarkably. They take almost all of the strain off the fingers and transfer it to the wrist.
    I think pip may be thinking of this style glove.

    Cancan, The gloves help out a bit, if you have a bad rope. I would suggest getting a good rope with a good handle like a straight line or a proline handle make all the difference in the world. Gloves help a little but if you really want to help her out get a good rope, handle and gloves. Also a good board and a pylon helps too :thumb: good luck
