One of the most frequently asked questions refers to the difference between the Rooster® Pro Race and Rooster® Dura Pro sailing gloves.
The main difference is that the Dura Pro Sailing Gloves have two overlapped abrasion-resistant Amara® reinforcements whereas the Pro Race Sailing Gloves have a Japanese Grip® reinforcement on top of the Amara®. This different combination of fabrics gives the Pro Race Gloves a better grip to prevent wet or extra-thin ropes from slipping. On the other hand, the Dura Pro Gloves are better suited for mainsheet or spinnaker trimming, when releasing the sheet smoothly is as important as trimming in. Both gloves are really hard-wearing but the Dura Pro Gloves might be a tad more abrasion-resistant.
We highly recommend wearing these sailing gloves as tight as possible as they feature elastic fabric on the back. On top of that, frequent use will make them give.
Last but not least, rinsing your sailing gloves with freshwater and hanging them out to dry will make them last twice as long.
