yeah I'm just looking at it now, the rest of the glove is fine, but the palm and the inner thumb part are warn and cracked. That's the part that gets all the use with the springer rubbing against it.
I think I might be able to unpick the stitching on that part and maybe get a thick leather patch put in it's place.
Anyone got one of those Kurt Thune hard plastic gloves? What are they like?
