Puncture proof gloves for lionfish hunting

It is very important to protect your hands from being stung by lionfish whether you are catching them underwater or you are removing their spines on the surface. I have been reviewing all the possible puncture proof gloves that are available on Amazon. Here are some of the best puncture proof gloves that you can buy today. I have paid special attention to price, spine resistance, comfort, the ones that received the best reviews and also the ones I use myself. So here are a few for you to consider:

HexArmor SharpsMaster II Gloves

Hexarmor Sharpsmaster II A

These are a fantastic puncture proof glove that I personally use myself at work. And these are the product features:

  • 1. Highest needle-stick resistance available provided by the layering of super-fabric brand material
  • 2. Tested using actual 25 gauge needles (modified astm 1342-05 test)
  • 3. Highest level of cut resistance on noted enhanced areas, exceeds isea/ce level 5
  • 4. Single-glove needle solution with incredible dexterity and comfort
  • 5. Wrinkle rubber palm coating with actifresh anti-microbial treatment
  • 6. Launderable.

Lindy Fish Handling Glove 

Lindy Fish Handling Glove A

And finally we have a fish handling glove made by Lindy. This glove gets an amazing number of very positive reviews on Amazon. These are the product features of the Lindy fish handling glove:

  • a. Protects hands from puncture or cuts while fishing
  • b. 800 percent more puncture protection than similar gloves
  • c. Three sizes
  • d. Available in both right and left handed versions
  • e. Provides a sure grip on slick fish
  • f. Machine washable
  • g. Protection provided by patented SuperFabric® material

The glove comes in three sizes as follows:

Glove Model # Size Color Hand
AC940 XXL Orange Left
AC941 XXL Orange Right
AC950 L-XL Orange Left
AC951 L-XL Orange Right
AC960 S-M Yellow Left
AC961 S-M Yellow Right

Please not with this glove for the price you only get ONE glove. For a fisherman who is right handed, holding his rod in his right hand, he would buy a left handed glove to hold the fish. However, for lionfish hunting I suggest you buy a PAIR. To know which size of glove to order try out the Lindy glove sizing guide.

If you want to order the left or the right handed Lindy fish handling glove, or a pair, then click on the picture of the glove above or the link here – The Lindy fish handling glove.

Please note that I can only personally recommend the first pair of puncture proof gloves shown – the HexArmor SharpsMaster II glove as it is the only one that I have ever used below and above water. However, the HexArmor SharpsMaster HV 7082 looks like the updated SharpsMaster II glove with protection on the back of all fingers and a bit of the back of the hand.

I am not sure what the other two gloves would be like underwater in terms of gripping and letting go of the polespear. However, they look like they would definitely do the job above water.

Happy shopping.
