Mizuno Retroflex PRO Golf Glove

Mizuno Retroflex PRO Golf Glove

When it comes to golf gloves, you have a dizzying array of options and it can get confusing to slog through all the terminology that they are using to describe and market these gloves to you.

So let’s take a no-nonsense look at what the terms means and what you can actually expect from a glove like this Mizuno Retroflex Pro Golf Glove.


The price point of this glove is mid-range so it’s meant to offer a good degree of comfort and quality but it’s not top of the line. But for this price range, the Mizuno offers quite a lot.

Mizuno Retroflex PRO Golf Glove

It uses an ultrathin layer of sheepskin leather that’s been treated with oil to prevent excessive stretching. What this means for you as a golfer is:

  • Luxury quality: leather—particularly sheepskin (cabretta) leather—is the best material for a golf glove. Some golfers insist it’s the only material that’s worth using and none of the synthetic materials can compare. We leave you to make the ultimate decision but we are definitely huge fans of the leather. It’s soft, comfortable, and durable.
  • The stretch resistance means that this glove will continue to fit you perfectly for an extended time. One of the most important things for a golf glove is that it fits perfectly. It should behave like a second skin which means snug (but not uncomfortable), flexible, lightweight, and porous. With the Mizuno, you are getting all of that.
  • Better grip: this treated leather provides a fantastic grip which means a better golf swing and an improved score.

On a purely cosmetic note: these gloves look beautiful. They have a professional style and design to them that just look great. We admit, that’s not really important in terms of game play but it is a nice bonus.


The most noticeable disadvantage here is that there isn’t as much padding. Of course, too much padding gets bulky and uncomfortable but this glove is very thin (which is not to say flimsy, it’s very durable, just manufactured to be thin).

If you are looking for wrist support or more cushioning on your finger pads and palms, this glove may not meet your needs.


For those whose primary concern when buying a glove is blister prevention and grip, this is the ideal glove. It’s a great design made from quality material so it will last a long time. It’s very breathable and light so you can get that added grip functionality without dealing with any discomfort. This is perfect for those who want the benefits of a glove without feeling like they are wearing a glove.
