With these gloves, you will be able to catch the ball and keep it in your hands without fumbling and dropping it. The Rev Pro palm features their proprietary C-Tack grip with cabretta leather on the backhand for an extended life span.

The blend of synthetic materials and leather on the backhead area prevent tears and give the hands a lightweight, flexible and skin tight feel while remaining sturdy enough to support your wrist and prevent injuries.

Do football players wear sticky gloves?

Yes. As material technology progresses, football gloves with sticky palms have become increasingly more popular amongst football players. For Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers, Running Backs, and more, having a grip that can catch more passes is critical. Especially during a cold playoff game in December when weather conditions make it difficult to catch a football, keeping your hands warm and having extra grip are some of many advantages sticky gloves can deliver.

How do you get football gloves to stick?

If you're looking to be one of the greats, you need to make sure your grip is one of the best. Whether you are a quarterback, wide receiver, or lineman, you can follow these 5 simple tips on how to make football gloves sticky without breaking the rules.

1) Use water or Spit on your football gloves

The spit method works best when your gloves are dry. For best results, wait for your gloves to be completely dry before spitting on the palm. We suggest removing the excess moisture by wiping your gloves on your pads. Another good alternative is using water from your water bottle. This method can be repeated throughout the game to maintain glove stickiness.

2) Use wipes

This method is best used before your game. Simply take baby or Clorox wipes and wipe down your gloves from your palm to the fingers. You can check the grip by rubbing your gloves together.

3) Dry in the sun

The method is great if you have 2 pairs of gloves and can rotate when one becomes sweaty. Wide receiver, lineman, and quarterback gloves are hard to keep sticky if they are sweaty. For the method to work well, all you have to do is put the sweaty pair in the sun with the palm facing upwards. The sun will dry the palm and guarantee a better grip after an hour or two.

4) Use specifically designed adhesives

It's important to note that this method is not commonly allowed. Adhesive such as pine-tar are designed to make your grip tackier on game day. We suggest that you check with your league's rule book to see what substances are permitted.

5) Have 2 pairs

If you have 1 pair of gloves for game day and one for practice, you will be able to prolong the stickiness of your gloves and worry less about fumbling the ball.

What do football players use to make their hands sticky?

When Odell Beckham JR made his incredible one-handed catch with defensive pass interference in January 2015, everyone wanted to know what gloves he wore. It may surprise you to hear that he was wearing the standard Nike Vapor Jet 3.0 glove.

So why was his grip so sticky?

There are many methods to maintain your glove’s grip. The 2 best methods are sun drying the palm after every use and alternating between 2 pairs. These methods will reduce the wear on your gloves and allow your gloves to keep their stickiness without breaking any of your league's rules.
