    At the moment i'm using a cheap and chearful Shultz glove from Intershoot and to be quite honest it seems to have been ok. As for making an improvement they help decouple the body and therefore the pulse from the rifle at a critical point.

    They are machine washable too.

    I only use the right one, Gilly sleeps in the left one !

    Can be personal preference... stiffer helps, but can cause problems trying to grip the rifle or wheel.

    They do get softer with age... i reckon 2 seasons and they're over, probably 1 if you really are looking for top performance.

    I'd try a few, if you can, before you buy... even if it's just to assess fit.
