Manera Magma Gloves vs Mystic Supreme Gloves

Postby Pitu » Wed Oct 14, 2020 2:39 pm

Last season I used 5mm Mystic Supreme gloves and while they were okayish warmth wise, the durability was abysmal and I had to throw them away after maybe 20 sessions.

So now I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with Manera's Magma gloves and especially how they compare to the Supreme gloves warmth- and durability wise? Also, if anyone knows whether this season's Supreme gloves are any better than last season's, please tell me.

Did you suffer with hand cramping with those mystic supreme at all?

I don't use either, I personally love the NP Surf 3 finger mitt. Super warm and arm pump is manageable. They too fall apart super fast.

My solution: Aquaseal.

I can get 2 winters out of a pair by just repairing them with Aquaseal every time a new leak pops up. By the end of their life they are literally covered in Aquaseal.

NP Surf does offer a "combat" version of these gloves now which is supposed to be more durable. I have not tried that though as my current pair is probably only 50% done.

Xcel Bamboo 3 finger mitts - not used them a huge amount but still doing fine after about 4 winters.

I really hated the gloves. 3 finger mitts sounds like a really good option. I like open palm mitts, when you're up and riding they retain a decent amount of warmth with zero negatives of gloves.

if they fell apart that fast, show your dealer. Mystic is pretty good about warranty.

None whatsoever, they're precurved so you can pretty much just hold your bar with your fingers in a neutral position.

I did actually, they said the wear was due to regular use and for that reason not eligible for warranty. :/

I used to avoid gloves because they slowly cut off circulation, but I now use ION 3/2 claw gloves which I have no issues with. If damaged I repair them with Black Witch glue. I have a pair of new gloves this year which look to have upgraded construction.

Manera all day long.
Warmer and way beter quality.
I used to be a mystic fanboy, and although their wetsuits are warm the durabilty sucks donkeyb#lls.
450 for a one season wetsuit is to much
