I've heard the replicas split between the thumb and forefinger. any truth to that? If they hold up reasonably well, I don't see why someone on a budget couldn't wear these for a while.
the real ones do that too. i think its just how they are made, or the stitching that they use.
EDIT: as for the OP, i would like updates on the gloves as you use them. i.e.: first game use and what you found, 5th game use, 10th game use etc etc etc.
