Shooting enthusiast Graham Thompson reviews MacWet gloves!

26 Jun

Shooting enthusiast, Graham Thompson recently tested MacWet gloves out and it seems he was more than happy with the gloves, so much so he got the MacWet logo sewed to his polo shirt and shooting vest!

Check out his review below:

“MacWet gloves are fantastic. I shot great with them today and even had the MacWet logo sewed onto my polo shirt and shooting vest. I would be lost without them in many ways. As soon as I put them on I forget they are even there as they are so comfy! Thank you MacWet for making my life easier”

Another fantastic recommendation from Tomahawk Throwing Association UK

25 Jun

Fantastic news….we have received another great recommendation from John Taylor the organiser of the Knife, Axe, Tomahawk Throwing Association UK. The organisation provides a safe environment to throw knifes and axes and has recently expanded into 14 throwing lanes.

Read John’s fantastic review below:

Especially in inclement weather your gloves are great as they have a very positive grip on the knives that we throw. Without a positive grip the release of the knife is very poor and accuracy drops dramatically. I am recommending your gloves to all the throwers that I know especially those with poor grips due to health problems.

National Cycling Week Review

21 Jun

National cycling week commenced this week and we were so pleased when Caroline from Fille De La Ville asked us if she could test out our ‘all grip, no slip’ gloves for her cycling week feature. 

It seems that she was more than happy with the gloves. Read here full review below:

“If you’ve already established that you like the cycling, and you know you want to carry on, then these are the gloves you need. I own the Micromesh long gloves in black. The Micromesh gloves are developed for warmer weather, and they aid circulation and air flow around the hand – great for if you’re cycling on a really hot day. They’re also amazing for wet conditions (many water sport enthusiasts wear them). If you’re looking for a winter pair, the website offers a wide range of lined gloves for the winter months, too. Zara Phillips has even been seen sporting these gloves. Now, if that’s not an advert for a good pair of sports gloves, I don’t know what is”

20 Jun

Leading up to one of the UK’s largest multi-discipline shooting events, MacWet will be supporting the Metropolitan Police Clay Target Club again in 2013.

Forming in 1970, the club was known as the ‘Met Police Clay Shooting Club’ and was founded by a small group of officers. Wishing to come together and compete in a sport they loved, the club was born. Over the years, as founding members have come and gone, the club’s name changed to ‘Metropolitan Police Clay Target Club’ and has grown to become a large-scale and fantastic target club. 

Membership of the club incorporates active and retired officers and police staff. Shooting abilities range amongst members, showcasing rookies to established members who represent their county, country or are in the Great Britain Police Shooting Team!
 
The Club trains and teaches all members and is active in the summer and winter months. Members shoot in 3 disciplines: English Sporting, English Skeet and Down the Line.

Members train towards competing in inter-force and national competitions, as well as the mother of events, the UK’s largest multi-discipline-shooting event, the PSUK (Police Sport UK) National Championships in September. 

Holding their own event each year, the 2013 event will be held at the West London Shooting School, one of the most premier shooting grounds in the country. Hosting a raffle, the Club raise money for the Air Ambulance Service and Macwet will once again be sponsoring the charity raffle. The event draws large numbers of entries and 2013 will be no exception. 

MacWet gloves are the perfect accessory to any sporting enthusiast’s kit and we are delighted to be sponsoring this event and its raffle. Enabling to keep the event fun and interesting, we are thrilled our contribution helps the police force of the UK train and compete in national events, as well as raise money for the Air Ambulance Service.
 
Our MacWet gloves would be the perfect addition to any shooters kit to give them an ‘all grip, no slip’ control that would create the perfect conditions needed to be at the top of the game, in all weather conditions. With MacWet by their side, we are sure club members would make it to the PSUK National Championship this September!
