    Detailing Gloves for paint correction

    Hi guys, I was looking for impact resistant gloves to help with the vibrations of paint correction.
    How much of you use gloves? does it help? What do you recommend?
    Currently looking at the Griots Detailing gloves.

    As always Thank You,
    Philip

    Detailing Gloves for paint correction

    I'd like to know if they get in the way... Meaning, don't they become more trouble than they're worth when it comes time to grab your clean microfiber and wipe the polish off the paint? Aren't you getting your clean towel all dirty with the gloves everytime?
    The only thing I can think of is having to remove/put back on after every single section pass, which would be insane. Curious to know how these work in the real world from someone who actually uses them.

    Get a Rupes and you won't need any gloves for vibrations.

    Are the Griot's gloves precurved to match your hand as it's on the machine? Ever since I switched to motocross or snowmobile gloves for winter use (which are precurved - no bunching at the palms when you have your hands on the steering wheel), I can't stand flat gloves like some mechanics gloves I've bought.

    I've though about getting open fingered cycling gloves for impact absorbtion but having some airflow/dexterity.

    If your machine handles are squeaky clean, try some microfiber gloves for a bit extra padding. They shouldn't interfere with or contaminate wipe down.
    Microfiber Gloves/ Pair
