Wide receiver gloves can help with catching and holding the ball. It is worth having a few sets of gloves on you should you need the extra “stickyness” to prevent you from dropping the ball.
When can wide receiver gloves be helpful?
They are particularly helpful if you play in conditions when there is alot of moisture in the air.
If it is raining, the ball will be slippery and it will be more difficult to catch.
Using gloves can help. But it is likely you will need a few sets as some gloves lose their traction if they become too wet.
It will be useful in cold playing conditions.
The last thing you want is to drop the ball because you are unable to move your fingers or hands.
Wear the gloves to keep your hands warm and to maximize their mobility, despite the cold weather conditions.
It’s possible for them to help with more single-handed catches.
For moves where you find yourself taking more single-handed catches, the gloves can give you that extra bit of traction to hold the ball.
