If you have never used these Gloves you are in for a treat. These are the best gloves I have ever used. Black Stallion are one of the most favorite Tig welding gloves use around the world. The Gloves have a padded Drag Patch for hot zone coverage. they have a Seamless index finger for excellent trigger control. The palms are lined which provides extra defense from heat. they are Kevlar stitched to provide spark and abrasion resistance. I have busted up hand from years of Mechanical and fabrication work and the normal welding gloves you buy are just terrible to use and are hard to feed filler rod with. these Gloves are amazing.
