LONG days of casting heavy jigs, weighty poppers and stickbaits using braid spooled outfits set with high drag settings can play havoc with water-softened hands, leading to poor grip and potentially serious line cuts.
Shimano’s Ocea Jigging Gloves deliver a good amount amount of non-slip protection, which Shimano says is why they were voted Best Fishing Accessory at the Australian Fishing Trade Show this year.
The gloves are made from waterproof neoprene so there’s no excessive bulk, and an aggressive Velcro locking tab provides a tight fit.
The use of an ultra thin layer of titanium alloy means Ocea Gloves keep hands warm on cold days, but cool on hot days, while reinforced non slip pads on the thumb, index finger and palm combat wear in key areas.
Light-weight and breathable, Shimano Ocea Jigging Gloves come in L and XL sizes.
