The Tank Heavy is built with protection and all aspects of performance in mind. It is slightly less flexible than the Skelly glove with slightly wider padding coverage.
-Comfort & Dexterity: The Tank Heavy shares our Performance liner with the Skelly. This is made with a super thin nylon liner glove coated in soft silicone = an incredibly comfortable glove on the hand. Please note that performance gloves use very specialized materials and you should take care to follow the care and use recommendations. The Tank Heavy allows a good range of flexibility and dexterity.
-Protection: The Tank Heavy covers all the major impact points with thick padding… the heel of the thumb, the area between thumb and index-knuckle, all the main knuckles, all around the thumb, back of the hand. Wherever you might get hit, this glove will either prevent or reduce any damage your poor hand will take.
-Tile & Hand speed: The slick silicone used is one of the fastest materials possible on pool tiles. Unlike latex which can drag slightly and get sticky as it ages, silicone will stay fast through the life of the glove. The Tank Heavy has bulky protection but is a streamlined shape, keeping hand speed fast. Durability The Tank has reinforced fingertip pads and thumb pad to reduce wear in these areas. All the areas of the glove in contact with tiles/bottom/sticks/pucks are solid silicon, with no material to wear holes into and nicks/cuts can be easily repaired if required. Regular maintenance can be carried out using caulking silicone as a repair agent as your glove accumulates wear and tear. Please note that the Tank performance gloves are a snug fit. The standard Hydro glove sizing chart is applicable, however if you are in between sizes or prefer a loose fitting glove we would recommend you go to the next size up. The Tank training glove option is a slightly looser fit.
