    Hi, I've had Monarch hand protectors for years and they have finally fallen apart. My problem has previously been that the finger holes in the left hand have been too big (I've made them smaller with pipe insulation!). The higher protection deflectors are only available in medium and large - I'm going to be playing in Prem 1 this season so I'm not sure the Grays 200 range would be good enough. I want a tube style right hand glove. What should I go for? The rest of my kit is mostly Mercian. If I get the new Evolution 0.1 are the holes gonna be too big?
    Thanks

    You could consider a change in HP style and try the TK T1 or up. They come in S/M. The only downside is that they not only have smaller fit, they downsized the whole glove. So you have a smaller stopping area.
    It will take some getting used to though, when switching from Monarch.

    Or try on the obo gloves and see how they feel. Have the tube RHP, and the LHP can be made pretty tight with the wriststrap.

    I m pretty sure if you asked monarch they can try and come up with something suitable. @sidecarclive

    With new kit coming soon from Monarch if you aren't in a hurry I'd say contact them about custom fitted gloves.
    If time is an issue these are probably sufficient for that level:
    • Grays G500/G400
    • Mercian Xtreme/Evolution 0.1
    • OBO HiControl's
